I recently stayed here with a group of 13 and 14 year old geography students. It suited our needs very well. Great beach side location on a relatively quiet stretch. The rooms were basic, the only issue were the dodgy blinds that broke on a couple of occasions. The food was simple and hearty. The staff were very willing to... More

First impressions: When arriving at Hotel Solemar you are greeted by friendly staff in the outside dining area. The food is great, although pork and chips or chicken and potatoes isn't very Italian. If you're looking for an average hotel in the middle of a dilapidated ghost town, hotel Solemar is the place for you! Here's a list of some... More

We stayed here in June with high school students on our Classics tour of Italy and Greece. The location for the hotel, immediately opposite the sea, is very good; Sant'Alessio is close to Taormina and, although it is a rather average sea-side resort, it's still an attractive place to stay. Rooms are large and basic - most with balconies, although... More

Granted, Sant'Alessio Siculo is off the beaten track, but that is exactly what we wanted and we were not disappointed. The hotel grew in our appraisal with each passing day. The service was marvelous and the food in their evening restaurant was marvelous, well prepared and well spiced, as good as any other restaurant in the town (and better than... More

Decent transfer from the airport, about one hour. Once we got to the hotel we were greeted by friendly receptionist, and a clean room. Huge balcony was the highlight of the room, however it included a very basic and cramped bathroom, that only allowed one person at a time. The beds were hard, which luckily isn't a problem for me....

This was one of my favourite hotels to stay at during my stay in Italy with EF Tours. The hotel was very clean, the scenary was breathtaking, the staff was remarkable, the food was delicious, and the price was amazing for all that we got! I will miss Claudio and Nino - they have hearts of gold and they were... More

What a suprise has been Hotel Solemar in Sant'Alessio Siculo! I spent there 4 days with my husband and everything has been lovely. The hotel is in a perfect location for visiting the nearby points of interest, in fact it's just 50 minutes away from Etna and from Gole Alcantara. The beautiful Taormina it's just 15 minutes away and you... More

I stayed here with EF tours, and the inside was pleasantly surprising. On our way to the hotel we saw all these really nice hotels, and then we got to this one which looked run down in comparison. When we walked in though, it was very clean, had a computer with Internet in the lobby and the rooms were very... More

I stayed here as part of an EF Tour group on a trip to Sicily. Overall, our group enjoyed this hotel and it was one of the best we encountered on the trip. Our room was comfortable and clean...the bathroom however, needed a few updates. The shower was miniscule (to be expected for Italy) but there was some strange mold... More

Very poor value for money - food was of a very poor standard and very small portions (I speak as a half italian person!). There was also an ants nest in the bathroom so the hotel definitely needs some attention.
