Stayed for four nights in June, very surprised to read negative reviews of the hotel. The hotel could not have a better location, it is located approximately 50 meters away from the City wall and as such only a short stroll from the cafes and bars. There is also a small supermarket around 100 meters away from the hotel.
We did pay extra for a room with a sea view and was lucky to get another view overlooking the town.The room was of average size and was very clean. The bathroom was a very good size with a bath and shower.
The breakfast was of the buffet variety with both hot and cold dishes.The evening meal was of a very high standard and with a fantastic help yourself anti pasti buffet. The wine list (all Sicilian) was expensive but the wines we did try were all of very good quality. The only negative was that the mealtime coincided with the spectacular sunset that could be viewed from the hotel terrace. The hotel does have very large landscaped gardens including a out door swimming pool.
I can not comment about the price of the hotel as it was part of a two center package but i would definitely stay there again and would definitely recommend it. The hotel was very grand full of character and had very friendly and helpful staff
