Food and service fantastic with staff so helpful. Rooms large and airy with amazing views over the pool, marina and sea. There's also a brilliant pianist who plays in the evening and, like all the staff, was great fun and really friendly.

The huge hotels packs in the guests. The pool, nearby beach and dining rooms are crowded. Breakfast was disappointing. The food was bad, and service nonexistent. Thr dining rooms are geared towards people on the full meal plan, so everyone else is mostly ignored. Service was adequate at best. As a general rule, low wage Sicilian hospitality workers are not...

I travelled to this hotel with a small group from Saga. It was great to have waiter service at lunch and dinner instead of the usual buffet style for all meals. The food was generally good, sometimes excellent and sometimes poor. We had a wonderful waiter called Gulio who was so cheerful and helpful. Our rep Joya was great too.... More

It's a beautiful hotel with an elegant modern sicilian style. Unlike many hotels in Sicily, the staff speaks English. Parking next to the hotel. The beach, tennis court and the footballcourt are all located in font of the hotel. Nice surrendings.

My comments will reflect most of those input earlier by Julie-Hants. This hotel could be in the middle of the Sahara for all the access available to the more interesting parts of Sicily. I also went on a Saga holiday so therefore did not hire a car. A car is absolutely essential here as there is no public transport to... More

Just returned from a 2 week stay at this hotel. Went with the British company, Saga who specialize in holidays for the over 55's. (well they used to), think they have lost their way lately. This hotel was in the back of beyond, no where to go, no public transport or taxis, in fact nothing at all unless you counted... More

I have just returned having spent two very relaxing weeks at this Hotel. I found the staff to be friendly and helpful and particularly the restaurant staff who had more than enough to do!! The food was very good with plenty of choice and the main courses were not repeated during the whole two weeks. The setting was very attractive... More
