Beautiful location beautiful views super service and excellent food. A place to relax and to experience away from noise traffic hustle and bustle. The simplicity and quality of the food is matched by the passion of the owner the chef and the team that serve you. Also a great selection of local wines to compliment the food . The caprese... More

The most breathtaking, lovely, Italian hotel. We loved every second at Monaci and wish we could have stayed longer. The pool area is so comfortable and relaxing. The food, different menu every day, is made fresh from the garden. The rooms are each unique and flawless. The views are incredible. Only 30 minutes from the Catania airport. On top of... More

What can i say about this place? In a word is...fantastic!!! There's so much green everywhere and the pool was great, very clean and relaxing. Breakfast was amazing, it was always nice to be greeted with a smile from the guys, the buffet was always rich and delicious. The restaurant wasn't anything special, there were the usual dishes almost every... More

This stay was for the first 3 nights of our first visit to Sicily. We expected a hotel but got something different............in a very good way. With 2 of our adult sons, we had the Limpido and Brilliante rooms, set in a separate building a few minutes walk from the main hotel. Rooms were great, and they waited until we... More

Monaci delle terre nere lives up to its hype. It's a tranquil hideaway in the foothills of Mount Etna. The owners have sensitively created a rustic, yet achingly stylish retreat, which is within a one-hour drive of Etna's peak; the tourist honeypot of Taormina and local beaches. My fiancé and I stayed here for 4 nights in September and we... More

A collection of simple but elegant rooms nestled on the gentle slopes of Etna surrounded by orchards and vines...Monaci Delle Terre Nere is quiet, beautiful and relaxing. The bottom line is that you will fall in love with the pace of life here, and you will enjoy your stay. It's perhaps because it is overall such a well considered and... More

This hotel is amazing. The garden is beautiful, the pool is overlooking the coast, service is impeccable, restaurant is delicious. Definitely recommend it. Only thing that could be improved is the cleanliness (especially the bathrooms)

A very relaxing stay with personal service, including an attentive and charming owner. There is also abundant and excellent food with Rossario proving to be a great waiter and host. The grounds are stunning and peaceful, allowing for relaxing days around the pool. The rooms are rustically luxurious and the estate offers up the majority of the food available. A... More

The setting is wow!, the staff wow!, the decor wow! and, yes, the food and wines (apparently) are also wow! (That 'apparently' is only because I'm a San Pellegrino girl. But I hear it on excellent authority that the local wines are superb.) The setting? Mt Etna rumbling to one side, the Med twinkling to the other. And in a... More
