We spent our last night in Sicily in Acireale at Santa Caterina. After staying at B&Bs for a week, it was nice to have a traditional style hotel. The property is absolutely gorgeous. It's a modern property not far from the water, away from the business of Catania, but still a very short drive to Catania and the airport. Our... More

Spent three nights in October and were very happy with the choice and value for money. Sea view was spectacular, restaurant lively and fun (eat twice), breakfast more than sufficient, staff very helpful and friendly, rooms comfortable and quiet. Would stay here again if in the area, we wanted to be near Etna and Taormina, but also close for early... More

friendly personel, comfortable nice decorated rooms, excellent breakfast. What more can one wish? We stayed 5 nights in November. Acireale is good located to visit the rest of Sicily. The town itself is quiet and friendly.

We stayed here for 3 nights and would definitely recommend this hotel and their restaurant. Our room was large and led out on to a grassy patio. Their breakfasts are quite extensive and the service is good. One thing to mention if you are driving there using a GPS it will take you their via the old town where the... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in July 14. We hired a car (would recommend this as we stayed in acireale which doesn't have much going on but is a great central location to get to other places by car) we got to the hotel and it was very sweet. Parking was a little scary though (up a steep hill)... More

Agree with other positive reviews of this hotel it is a great place. There are not many signs to direct you to the right place but well worth it once you find your way (if you are sat-nav-less). Rooms were a good size with amazing views out over the sea and a truly fantastic shower! Disappointed that the double rooms... More

We only stayed for tree nights but felt home immediately. After coming from a big resort which was very impersonal we were welcomed in a warm and friendly way. The hotel is cute and cosy. The rooms are cute and pretty. The breakfast was all lovely arranged and tasty (except the scrambled eggs, but you could boil your awn eggs... More

I stayed here with my wife for a week. We found the room adequate, the bathroom was a little weird as it was adapted for a disabled person. The staff were helpful and accommodating, however they didn't all speak good English so it could be difficult at times to communicate effectually. Even the ones who did not speak English did...

The hotel is average, not a 4 star hotel, more like 3 star. The reception staff were helpful and friendly, however not all staff had a great understanding of the English language, making it difficult to get help at times. The rooms were nice and kept clean, however the beds were uncomfortable and hard. A nearby dog barked constantly during... More

I've stayed at this hotel multiple times. We had a family of 4 and were always put into the suite which had a single bed as well as a double bed. They provided a baby cot for our youngest, so it was ample space for all of us. The staff are friendly. The only thing I did not like about... More
