“average in many ways”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

We found this hotel by accident, the one we were heading for from our satnav was closed. Set back from the road in large garden with big swimming pool the hotel looked fine. We didn't use the pool as too cold, not sure that it was even open. The welcome was good and the hotel was busy so we stayed in the family room for 1 night. It was more of a business/conference than holiday hotel. The room was very large and clean but old ad old fashioned, though there was sky tv for no extra cost. The bathroom was tired and not spotless but not dirty either is that makes sense.Though they did provide disposable tooth brush and razor!
Dinner was interesting because they had a large group in and so we were sat in a room next to main dining room, just 4 diners, where service was slow and have to say that the head waiter was very helpful the other waiters looked miserable.
The starters were ok but sadly couldn't eat my main course which were swordfish cakes because they were over salted. Wine was very passable and expresso good.

We slept quite well and our bedroom opened out to a shared balcony with amazing views of Etna erupting and clear scene of the lave pouring down the snow covered slopes.

Breakfast in honesty was boring, orange juice tasteless,stewed coffee, continental choice but not particularly good quality.
This really is a business hotel, or a good basic base from which to travel to sightsee.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2010

Huge hotel, far from the center of the city (Acireale), you must have a car.
It stands above the national road, in front of the sea (SS114) but you don't hear the noise of the traffic.
There's a nice pool (opening between 9 am - 18pm and closed during the lunch), the place is really nice with a beautiful garden.
The room is ok, not extraordinary. You sleep well and you have space to put your clothes and stuff away.
The restaurant is expensive if you didn't take the half-board (25-40 euros/person) and the meals are not so fantastic, but still good.
There are a lot of groups (in the period we were there). They're leaving the hotel early in the morning (some noise in the corridor...) and turning back for dinner.
People are correct and professionnal.
It lacks a nice and warming spirit. Maybe it's more aimed towards groups than individuals.
