The hotel looks very good on the web site and with the prospect of a sea view and balcony, we paid the extra £150 required for the added luxury. The sea view turned out to be more of a wall view but if you lean over the tiny balcony and look to the right, the harbour can be seen.....just. The balcony was tiny and was not big enough to sit out on. The swimming pool is tiny. Standing room only! The breakfast was ok, mainly cakes but there was the option of bacon and scrambled eggs. The hotel was clean and the staff friendly. Sicily itself....wow...beautiful scenery but there is a definate need for the Sicilain population to undertake the use of bins. Currently everyone uses the beaches or streets to throw stuff away. The beach to the right of the hotel was more like a landfill site than anything else. This was typical of nearly all beaches we visited on the island. The place could be spectacular if they cleaned it up. Not sure if passing aircraft are dumping rubbish over the island, or they just have no pride in it...whatever the reason, it was a real disappointment to be greeted by copius amounts of dog mess on the streets, litter everywhere and broken glass strewn all over the beaches.
