Following a friends recommendation, I reserved a room for my wife and I while an other two friends of ours reserved an other room. We found the hotel to be very clean, breakfast was great. Ended up having dinner at the hotel's restaurant which cooks great Pizza, pasta and meat, not to mention the salads. Powerful shower. Had to switch... More

Even though we only spend 2 days at this hotel it was a great experience. Rooms aren't huge but they are comfortable and clean with Sky TV. The views from the room's balcony, the restaurant and the bar's terrace are great. The breakfast is very good with good fresh Italian products and nice coffee. The garden and pool outside the...

We arrived late in the evening without a booking. We had been searching for a nice hotel for an hour or so and finally found Santa Caterina. We got the last room at a good rate so we were happy. The room was so lovely, nice decor, clean and very comfortable with double doors out onto the gardens with table... More

We only had 2 days here. We wish we could have stayed longer. It was very relaxing. Great breakfasts with lots of choices. We walked down to the Mediterrean sea...downhill and winding. We found a place to carefully swim. No beaches, just black lava rock. Slightly dangerous getting in and out. We enjoyed the hotel pool later...only wish the water... More

We stayed here for 9 nights in July. Acireale is a charming town, a hidden gem with all the Rococo grandeur of better known places like Noto, but without all the tourists. We stayed in a standard room, which was perfectly comfortable and surprisingly spacious. The grounds are fairly compact but the pool area is lovely with a choice of... More

Good location, nice rooms but which can do with redecorating. Room was ok, additional single bed stole space. Comfortable bed. Sea view, from balcony....desk staff helpful and friendly. Excellent cleanliness. Recommended.

We have just returned from a lovely stay in Santa Caterina Hotel where we spent over 2 weeks during our trip to Sicilia and, I must say, this is a place where it actually feels like home. It is especially important when you are travelling with kids. We occupied 2 sea-view neighboring rooms to accommodate our 2 kids and us.... More

This is a solid, shapeless block of cement, with a view on... a motorway, small and unattractive rooms and unfriendly service. The quality of the breakfast was pitiful. And on top of that, price is sort of a rip off. I would never go back there.

It's far the newest and most modern hotel in Acireale. The rooms are very clean, the staff is excellent and they all speak English. Most of the rooms overlooks the ocean, the restaurant has a gorgeous ocean view as well. It's beautiful to have breakfast in the morning when the sun comes into the terrace. It's location is not too... More
