Only a one night stay, before our Journey back to Manchester, England. The hotel impressed with its chilled atmosphere and lovely rooms. We then sat pool side, for most of the afternoon. The tranquility of the hotel is sprinting, considering its location, in the hustle and bustle of Catania

The room was very good, very well isolated and had a nice terrace. It is good that there is a swimmingpool, but it is too small for the size of the hotel.

Several issues with this hotel- will bullet point to make it quicker! - extortionate prices in the hotel. €12 for a drink, apparently rum and coke counts as a cocktail. As do most drinks. Often quoted different prices each time we went to the bar. Tourists definitely ripped off in Catania compared to locals - bar food was sent back... More

A very opulent hotel with interesting decor. Clean rooms, well furnished with balconies that are rather overgrown so do not provide a view. The staff are pleasant ,especially the pool staff who were good humoured and polite and the porters.

Hotel itself looks generally good until you step into your room Very Moldy smelling outdated rooms, ridiculously small bathroom with shower build it somehow in a minuscule bathtub; no view from the room; mediocre bed. Plus: decent swimming pool, bar and breakfast area (despite breakfast is not exceptional both in quality and quantity) Close to airport On the beach
