Like some previous reviewers we were here for 2 nights on a VJV tour. Our room was on the ground floor and very spacious and clean. I can't really fault the room, although some travelling companions reported much smaller rooms so I think we were lucky. The A/C worked which on this trip was a major breakthrough! The hotel is not in a prime location and so there are few facilities around. The views from some rooms are excellent and the top-floor restaurant is even better. Our view was actually of the car park road up the side of the hotel so this rather balanced the spacious room but it was a fair trade-off! I have no complaints about the accommodation to which I would give 4/5 but...
The food was absolutely atrocious and unacceptable. There were only about half a dozen people there besides 18 from VJV yet the evening meals varied from lukewarm to cold. It was totally unimaginative, meat and veg or fish and veg. The vegetables were boiled to oblivion. The approach to vegetarian food (I am not one myself) was like something from Monty Python. The substitute for meat was a plate of cheese. The substitute for fish was - without exaggeration - a plate of broccoli and carrots! We were taking photographs for posterity! It didn't matter as the non-veggies left most of theirs anyway. I echo previous comments about the paucity of fruit, artificial fruit juice, and the indescribable "fried" eggs. So, be warned. Don't even think of eating here unless you have to. If you are a veggie take plenty of snacks!
The staff seemed to have been specially recruited for their dumb charmlessness. They must have scoured Sicily to find them. This hotel does Sicily no favours.
