“Great location disappointing facility”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2010

This hotels is in a beautiful location overlooking the sea. The swimming pool and private beach are as lovely as any 5 star resort. The rooms were clean and functional. The bathroom was a disappointment as the shower was dirty and did not drain. The main complaint we had was the air conditioning was turned off by management very early every morning and the room would get unbearable. The breakfast was very limited but the lunch was great. The turn off to the hotel was poorly marked and terribly maintained. This hotel caters to families with children and has many activities for kids. Will we go back? Maybe, as this is the closest hotel to our family.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2010

After a long time searching for a family hotel in Sicily that wasn't too expensive we opted for this hotel as it sounded it had everything we were after and it didn't fail to deliver. We stayed there a week full board. We were made to feel very welcome as the only english family there, everyone was really friendly and made us feel at home. The animation team were excellent, our 2 boys loved attending the kids club and mini disco every day and we also took part in some of the activities ourselves e.g aqua gym, tabletennis, football and darts. The room was huge and had a great sea view. The room was clean and in good condition and adaqate for a three star hotel. The food was excellent for three stars, apart from pasta and pizza there were lots of different types of fish, sea food and meat on offer and lots of vegetables and salad. Meals alo included mineral water and local wines. The private beach was reached by a lift and was clean and quiet. We spent most of our time around the pool, there was never a shortage of beds and the pool was better than most 5 star hotels we've been too. The location was great as it was close to Cefalu, Palermo, Monreal, Erice and Trapani which we visited in our hire car.

I have just returned from a stay of 10 days at Torre Normanna with my family and friends, and I can honestly say it was one of the best holidays I have had! The animation team are fantastic and really made the holiday. There was plenty to do during the day from aqua gym, to archery, tennis lessons and dance lessons. The children were entertained in the mini club by two great girls. There is also a mini golf, ping pong tables and football. The food in the restaurant is excellent. It is buffet style, but there is plenty of choice for everyone. The staff are very friendly and professional. In the evening, there is a show by the animation team which is excellent, very professional and entertaining. I never felt the need to leave the complex for anything, as it was all to hand. I enjoyed my time so much, we have decided to go back there next summer. Last year, we went to a resort in Egypt, which was a higher star rating than this one, but I can honestly say that this hotel was far superior. The hotel is not a 5 * resort, as it lacks the little luxuries, but the rooms were more than adequate, we had a great sea view, and were very clean. I would recommend this hotel to everybody from families with young children ( like us), or for couples, or even singhle people (and we saw quite a few). The hotel was like one big happy family, and even if you arrive alone, you are always encouraged to get involved with something so you are never alone for too long!
