This hotel is a nightmare to deal with. I booked a room for a two night stay in September 2020 before the Covid outbreak. On their website, they hail a long stay special. I thought that meant a better rate not a non refundable option. So, when I clicked confirm I was unwittingly tied in. They then closed the hotel for the year and didn’t have the courtesy to inform me. Another hotel in Noto in Sicily refunded me when I asked. This hotel has fought tooth and nail to keep my money despite them cancelling my reservation and closing their hotel. They have offered me a voucher which is effectively worthless. One simply can’t go all the way to Sicily at the drop of a hat.

My partner and I visited Ortea Luxury Palace in August 2019. We were reasonably happy with our stay. The check-in process was efficient, and our room was stylish and well-equipped (unlike the lobby, which felt sterile and tired). We were in a split level junior suite with a sea view, and on both levels the view was partially obscured by the massive parking lot directly in front of the hotel. I suspect this is the case for all rooms facing the sea, which is unfortunate, but it is not a deal breaker. The breakfast spread was adequate, but more plant-based options are needed. I was very unhappy about the additional charge to use the pool and sauna facilities – in a luxury hotel, these amenities should be provided as standard inclusions. No wonder they were deserted!

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review and I am sorry about your unhappiness about the extra charge but our indoor swimming pool is subject to an extra charge being part of the SPA path. I will extend your positive words of appreciation with the Staff of the reception for the efficient check-in. Hope that you can visit our property again.

Palace luxury is such a grand name but when you start to look at details, something is amiss. Perhaps the name incites you to look for luxury. You could have luxury without being grand. Something perhaps with the interior design of the Palace. We spend the NYE here and very fortunate to experience the fireworks right in front of the balcony on the 3rd floor looking at the harbour. It felt cold. The receptionists were friendly and veterans with service and I applaud them during the first day of the year. Bright and cheerful. The design didn't quite work for me but the intention was there.

The Ortea Palace Hotel has an excellent location and is a splendid property. The room was remarkable and unique with the two floors room design. The service provided exceeded our expectations. We stayed a couple of nights and would return without hesitation in the future.

We had the wonderful pleasure of staying at the Ortea Palace in early December of this year. It was our second visit to Ortigia, and we now look forward to going back again! We were so impressed with the elegance, and care that go into hosting guests here. We had dietary issues, and it was suggested we meet with the Chef. What care and thoughtfulness were then provided for dinner, and breakfasts! The owners are fantastic people and seek making everything perfect. We would say, they achieved their goal!
