I stayed here with extended family (party of 7 including 1 child) for a week at the end of May. The hotel is perfectly located, easily reachable from Palermo (which we flew in to - c. 1 hour drive) and right on what must be the best beach in Sicily. We had 3 rooms across 7 people, and each room was extremely spacious, clean and well maintained. Whilst there were messages in the rooms requested that no food or drink were consumed in them, no-one questioned us buying bottles of water for the night so that did not cause a problem. Breakfasts were well varied, and whilst it was disappointing that they are served in the basement rooms rather than the beautiful restaurant, that was my only negative comment here. The hotel's best asset by far is the staff. The concierge spoke brilliant English and was so warm and welcoming. And I must also mention the bar staff who looked after us in the evenings and made a drink before bed with the family a really lovely time. The only point I would flag to any other families staying is the lack of pool (clearly mentioned by the hotel - we did not expect one) - the sea can get quite rough so if you have young children wanting to swim, maybe consider a villa/hotel with a pool to accommodate this. All in, the hotel made our stay even more special and I highly recommend to anyone. Previous issues flagged on this website (lack of hot water, lack of internet access) were not encountered thankfully so I think the owner has taken note.
