An excellent position overlooking the sea with breathtaking views of the bay and Mount Etna. The hotel is clean and modern with car parking on site. The pedestrianised town centre is a short climb above the hotel with a wonderful array of eating places and shops on the way up - 5 to 10 minutes walk depending on your fitness.The hotel is adjacent to the spectacular public gardens which are well laid out and peaceful - well worth a visit and also close to the Amphitheatre. Book a room witha private terrace - well worth the extra. Reception is on the top floor and a glass lift takes you down to your floor level the terraces and pool area. Great breakfast.
