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

I have just returned from a week at this hotel and there are a few plus points but also some most annoying faults which would put me off returning to this hotel as I found the faults too stressful. On arrival my room phone and central control system were not working however this was swiftly dealt with by the very... More

We have just returned from an all-inclusive 2-week holiday at this Hotel, and would have given it 5 star rating but it is just toooooo far from anywhere. Lovely setting with a Marina one side and beach the other side, Staff all very helpful, food no complaints, everywhere kept spotlessly clean, but bedroom walls rather thin as we could hear... More

Nice hotel set in a Marina. It has good tour options for excursions directly from the hotel. Do not bother with full board, the half board option is better as you will eat in the better restaurant upstairs rather than the mediocre buffet restaurant on the ground floor. The pool is nice and clean and the beach is not too... More

Our thanks to all staff from Blu Hotel Portorosa Furnari.Excellent hotel,excellent food,excellent beach,excellent staff.It is true that is quite far from Taormina or Giardini Naxos,but you can visit those places during your trips and you could not find there such a beautiful hotel!! I advise to choose ,,all inclusive,,and to ask for the room with swimming pool view!!

Stayed with Blu hotels again (last year in Lago Trasimeno) and found this hotel to be lovely; modern, luxurious & immaculate condition. We had upgraded to a larger room overlooking the marina & our balcony was lovely and sunny (even in November!) and the view fabulous. The room was spacious, staff friendly and efficient. We used the pool area sunbeds... More

Me and my wife stayed at Blu Hotel for three days on Half Board basis as a part of our 12 days trip around Sicily. Unfortunately this was the worst hotel experience of all during this holiday. We had stayed at 6 different hotels ranging from 3 star bed and breakfast to five star, and be warned this hotel is... More

This is a very nice hotel. It is modern, well designed and immaculately kept. Our room was excellent and the staff were efficient and friendly. The beach over the road was very nice and well run by the hotel. The water was crystal clear and you could see little fish. Our fellow guests were almost exclusively German. The drawbacks are...
