5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2015

A very nice hotel, between a lake and the sea in the straights of Messina. Gorgeous environment. Many good restaurants in the area, but the Hotel Dining is also very good: I had some delicious dinners. I had a very relaxing week, and it was affordable too: I got a discount on the rate because I stayed a week. My room was nice and clean, the zone was quiet, and the service was prompt (including transportation to/from nearby areas of interest by the young man running the place). More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

Hotel is approx 13 kms from Messina - not a few as described on their website. It will cost a minimum of 30 euros by taxi to find this hotel. Even though the hotel is ok the location has no appeal. We booked bot 4 nights thinking it was a great beach location. Stayed for 2 nights. The beach was full of rubbish & we were not game to swim. If the hotel was in another location we may consider staying in it. Although called a Hotel it is more like a bed & breakfast - only 9 rooms. Breakfast is adequate... best be early as it sits in the heat on the verandah. The one plus was a great air conditioner that we could adjust the temperature. The towels were threadbare & grey & need replacing. More
