We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of a cosmos tour of sicily, we couldn't of being more disappointed!
The hotel itself is in a great location, across the street from a gorgeous beach and right by all the shops and bars. But this is the only good thing about the hotel.
First impressions of the hotel are good, lovely exterior and a welcoming reception. The room we stayed in was worn out, shabby and in dire need of an update. I have stayed in many Italian hotels that are slightly old fashioned but are always classy and well maintained. A door was hanging off one cupboard and all the wooden surfaces were scratched and worn out. The bedding resembled something of a child's duvet, covered in moons and stars, not to mention the huge yellow plastic atrocity which was supposedly a headboard. There was a feeble attempt at decoration in the form of a spray painted stencilled border which vaguely resembled lemons and oranges.
The bathroom was fine, very clean.
I really don't know how to describe the shambles that was the restaurant. The food was disgusting, borderline inedible. The staff were extremely rude and abrupt, the first evening we were there a waiter rudely asked one of the members of the tour why the had an attitude problem and why they were being rude, when all the guy had asked was how do we order food for the next evening! A member of the tour also asked to put a drink on their room tab and was told this was not possible, and when she asked why she was told that 'people like you drink then leave without paying'.
Breakfast was very basic, few types of cereal and croissants, and no fresh fruit!
I would avoid this hotel at all costs, terrible room, and rude staff!
