My girlfriend and I stayed for a few nights in August 2012. It was the most expensive accommodation we stayed in during our trip to Sicily and, whilst clean and comfortable, we did not feel it justified the price. The breakfast included in the price was excellent. The hotel did offer an evening meal (at extra cost), which we did not have because we thought it was a bit expensive. However, the options for eating out or drinking within walking distance of the hotel are limited, although there were sufficient restaurants for us to find something to eat. The main issue for us (having to rely on public transport) was the location of the hotel. The hotel offers tickets for a private beach (not within walking distance of the hotel). We had to rely on the local bus service to get to the temples and beach. We were not able to locate a timetable for the bus service (which appeared to change routes randomly resulting in us having to walk over a mile back to the hotel on one occasion) and, despite there being a bus stop directly outside the hotel, the staff were unable to offer any assistance about the bus times routes or where to purchase tickets. We found out that tickets had to be purchased in advance from local tobacconists / shops but none seemed to have any. We would have expected the hotel (being a 4 star) to offer its guests advice and assistance on local public transport and even offer tickets for sale. The private beach, Agrigento town and the and temples can be reached by the bus service. Those visiting the hotel with a car are unlikely to experience the problems we had, but for those relying on public transport we would recommend staying in Agrigento town, where the main bus station is located.
