I chose this place because of its proximity to the airport. However I was surprised when I landed here, which is next to the shore. However the room was small but good enough for short stays on budget. Nice ambiance within the hotel and had massage service as well. There was a Srilankan guy working in this hotel, who was...

Stayed at the hotel for a few nights as I had to do some business at Catania airport and the hotel advertised as being only 5 minutes away. Yes, maybe in still air it is. It is impossible to reach by foot and the taxis are super expensive. The "airport shuttle" provided for a surcharge is actually an unofficial/unlicensed taxi... More

We have traveled much of Europe as a family by car and have stayed in many different Hotels. This was the worst we have encountered by a long way. Wi fi was advertised but was non existent. The 'camp' is right at the end of the airport runway and the noise from aircraft was deafening and vibrated our hut. The... More

Recommended . Nice area . Good price. Helpful staff. Enjoyable breakfast . Safe area . I imagine in summer is a really nice village resort. Just been now so of course was a bit too calm but very quite.

This Hotel is a good resort for those who want to enjoy the beach. Not very sophisticated, but with direct access to the beach. Must be very full in the high season. Near the airport was our choice for an overnight stay. Taxi from the airport cost us $ 25.00. Room type cabins, simple but with everything necessary. Wifi only... More

I really not advise anyone to stay in this place (nor in Catania). It was very noisy (aircraft taking off every 5 min). The "rooms" are moisty, stinky and very old. The village looks deprecated... Awful breakfast. The only nice thing is the beach, just next to the village.
