“Fantastic Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2009

Absolutely one of the most delightful surprises of our summer in Sicily. We happened upon this hotel, planned to stay 1 night, then extended our stay for 3 because the staff was so professional and friendly, the hotel and room kept extremely clean, and the rate was lower than several other area hotels that were not nearly so nice. it seemed as though they were doing everything to make our stay enjoyable and easy. We had 2 large and equipped suites, one for our older parents and one for our family, including small children, and all enjoyed the stay there, including large flat screens with english language channels, wi fi, ample breakfasts. The location was good for being able to ferry to the islands and only a few minutes from a very nice beach with calm waters. Free parking just outside the entrance, and a driver on call to taxi us anywhere. The manager did warn that August is packed and the service may not be as personal. Very hIghly recommend this hotel if you plan to stay in this area.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2009

We chose this hotel based on its tripadvisor rating. The hotel is new and we were given a suite at a very good price due to it being the off season. As the location was central to the places we were going, we extended our stay to 3 nights. The hotel is opposite the sea and about a 5minute walk to the centre of town and 10 minutes to the harbour where the ferries leave for the Aeolian islands. The suite was large, spacious and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful and spoke english well. The breakfast was good. Our room had cable and Wi Fi internet. When the Wi Fi did not work we were able to use cable. The Wi Fi was quickly fixed.The hotel has a gym and spa which we did not use. I would definitely stay here again.

We arrived late and searching for a place to stay the taxi driver left us in front of this hotel. We stayed one night only because we wanted to leave for the eolian islands the next day even though the hotel was far from the centre. The person at the reception was not very professional and insicure of their english. The style of the room was very baroque and all of the hotel seemed very heavy in style. I don't think I'll recommend it to my friends, it's not very welcoming.

Dear Madam,

I' m really sorry, we will do our best to increase our English, and next time in Milazzo you will find a more professional staff with perfect English.
About our furniture: a lot of people as you can read like the “classical” style, unfortunately, it's hard to change style following our customer own style, next time I hope to have time to show you all our rooms, and I’m sure you will find the right one for you.
