We spent 8 days at the Caiammari in September – our fourth visit to this romantic oasis. We discovered the hotel when travelling around Sicily and we stayed this time because we were celebrating an anniversary. We love the large pool which has wide terraces and plenty of new sun beds and umbrellas. The gardens are beautiful, the gym is excellent, everything is maintained very well, the staff are fantastic – nothing is too much trouble and they were particularly helpful arranging a visit to a GP when I had an ear problem – the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are modern and well equipped, we have really enjoyed the food and wine in the restaurant and think the prices are reasonable.
Ortigia is beautiful and atmospheric and we found some excellent restaurants and bars, mostly recommended by the hotel staff. In the other direction head off into the hills to Noto where there are good restaurants, or along the coast to a beautiful beach, or close by to Ognina harbour for a Pizza.
You need a car at the Caiammari and ask for directions prior to your stay to save some time because it is located in typically Sicilian countryside. We don’t mind the driving - the trick is to keep moving and stay chilled! If you don’t have a car their sister hotel, Hotel Roma, is located in the heart of Ortigia. It’s lovely but we haven’t stayed there, we would miss the Caiammari too much, and writing this has made me wish I was there right now!
