We stayed 6 nights. Only drawback was temporary failing of lift, but a service one was still in use. As per the title, it's location, on the waterfront, with the sun going down in the west, our sea view room couldn't be bettered. We were central to ll the sights on Ortigia island. There were also free bike availability as well as the free private beach, towels and umbrellas and beds, although we had to pay a small fee to boat out to the beach. There were several eating places within easy reach, The breakfast was superb, and the roof top restaurant was very good but subdued (ad so we ate out every night). We used the bar facility prior to going out, and the head waiter was inspired in his recommendation of various wines to try. All the staff were competent and friendly. The reception staff were always happy and polite, and helpful, the Serving staff could never do enough for you, and the maids ect always gave a welcoming smile. I have no doubt that the staff were the biggest attribute the hotel had. We will go again.
