We expected a nice local 3 star hotel and yet got 5 star accommodations. Front desk could not have been more helpful, dinner was great , and the room perfect and yet not fancy. The wellness center was an added bonus with both steam and sauna . Located right near the lifts to Etna . We had a wonderful, busy... More

Beautiful hotel with amazing location for excursions on Etna and stunning view. Very kind staff. Excellent kitchen. We stayed two nights. Free wifi. Relaxing wellness area. One of the best we stayed in Sicily. Reccomended.

Fantastic hotel that exceeded all our expectations. We were given a spacious, clean and well-furnished room which easily hosted 2 adults and two children (for a very reasonable price as well). There is Sky TV in the room, fast and reliable wifi, breakfast was great, and the dinner - for 20 Euro per person - was one of the best... More

We stayed at hotel Corsaro while visiting mount Etna, it was a beautiful hotel which was tastefully decorated and in a superb location with views of Etna and from the balcony we saw the lava slopes which resembled a moonscape. The rooms were large and very well equipped and included free wifi which actually worked. The staff were very informative... More

We had a balcony. Whilst we were there there was a small eruption showing a splash of red in the sky above etna. The food is pretty good and reasonably priced but you should book in advance if you want to eat. 5 mins walk from the cable car lets you miss the crowds, and whilst we were there, the... More

Fantastic location, the most friendly and informative staff of all the hotels we stayed in in Sicily (we stayed in another 4 hotels on this trip) the staff were excellent in all of the other hotels but Davide and Alessandro were just the best. The evening meal was excellent! €20 for 3 courses and it was the best meal we... More

I would like to thank Hotel Corsaro for making our stay an excellent one! Davide who speaks very good English, made sure we had everything we needed for our fashion shoot. Food, wifi, rooms, etc.. All were excellent. I highly recommend anyone staying for a relaxing weekend, to stay there. A few meters down one can get the cable car... More

We arrived at Corsaro on a day that Mount Etna was erupting. Corsaro is REALLY up there! It is a gorgeous hotel with 360 views and is part of an intimate village with a few gift shops, a few other hotels, and a few cafes. After the daytrippers go back down to Taormina or beyond, only the hearty are left... More

We booked the room and made a note that we would like to reserve a table for dinner and if possible get a room with a view. We used one of the booking sites the day before and while we were sight seeing another part of Sicily. We did however get an e-mail reply with the standard information about excursions... More

We arrived late at night, but the man at the reception was extremely nice!! He explained all excursions, answered all of our questions (millions of them), and was able to share with us his love of the volcano. This certainly made our stay. The room was great, super clean, wifi is great. Only downside: the next day we wanted to... More
