My husband and I went to Alcantara Resort on the advise from my sister and niece and we are so happy we did. It is a beautiful oasis with wonderful staff. Luigi, Melissa, Angelo, Angelo, Dario and the rest made us feel like family! They were always smiling and always willing to help. They even cleaned our laundry when we asked. Our room was beautiful and had everything we needed. It was on the 2nd floor and had a beautiful view of the resort and the surrounding area of Gaggi. The grounds are beautiful, with the cabanas sprinkled throughout. We observed the staff maintaining the grounds daily and keeping everything perfect.
The pool area was our favorite, with Angelo bringing us whatever we wanted to eat or drink as we relaxed.You can see Mt Etna in the distance from your lounge chair. The pool itself is great with a jacuzzi and smaller pool for kids. The morning buffet was more than ample and great food. We ate dinner at the resort restaurant and also enjoyed great food and service then. There was even a confirmation party there one evening and it was fun to watch the festivities. The staff handled the restaurant and the party very well.
The resort was only about a 10-15 minute drive to the beaches which made it a great retreat at the end of the day. It was also a good place to have a base camp as we explored Sicilia. The staff was able to give us great advise on places to visit both tourist and not.
We will definitely return in the future to this beautiful and fun resort.
