Small, family-run hotel, very suitably located for anyone visiting Caltagirone, Piazza Armerina and whereabouts. We missed the turning to the hotel - the road singage could, in fact be improved upon - so here are the hotel co-ordinates: 37.27836 14.42935. The hotel is perched on top of a steep hill - see photo. Rooms are spacious and clean, though they... More

The hotel was very clean, the rooms a little bit old fashioned, but it was OK. The food was excellent, and the staff were kind and helpful. The pool is situated in very unique atmosphere, and rather big.

It is apparently a 3 Star hotel but the Pomara hospitality and service deserves 7 Stars. This family run hotel has an adjacent restaurant where the food is amazing. The Hotel Pomara is surrounded by the most splendid countryside where all the staff welcomed us with a wonderful natural smile. It is definitely the hotel I shall be longing to... More

The restaurant is excellent and Johnny the waiter is a scream. Our food was delicious. I really appreciated the pool and wifi in the room. I thouhgt the staff were really professional. We had a wonderful pizza in the local place and the best ice cream of our trip at a very unassuming place down the street.

We picked this hotel as a central place to explore the south east of Sicily. Whilst there we drove west as far as Agrigento and east to Siracusa. Main roads are generally good but road signs often just disappear completely - be prepared to get lost. That said, we had no trouble finding the hotel once in San Michele, as... More

Hotel Pomara is situated minutes away from Caltagirone (famous for it's ceramics) and Piazza Armerina (Villa dei Casali world heritage in mosaic). In this sleepy hamlet of San Michele, it all started as a Restaurant which attracted people from all over Sicily . Eventually the hotel was built to accomodate diners who found the food to be excellent. I always... More

Located in a small town about 30 miles from Catania, with great views of the countryside. A car is probably essential, though driving in Sicily can be an 'interesting experience' for drivers from other European countries such as the UK. There is plenty of free parking at the hotel. The hotel has large, though basic, clean rooms. The rooms all... More

Our family based ourselves here to tour Eastern Sicily and found the Hotel Pomara very suitable. Rooms were large and clean if a little Spartan. We had some problems with noise from the corridor outside, but solved it with a towel stuffed into the crack. But aside from these quibbles we found the staff friendly, the large outside pool wonderful... More
