A very picturesque, small hotel with unique and very modern decor. Warm, friendly and welcoming staff with a great restaurant serving a high standard of food for across all meals of the day. Very peaceful and quiet, even being off the main road through Siracusa, you would never know and you definitely forget! With it being just off the main... More

Just spent 4 amazing nights at Caol Ishka and loved every minute of it. Whilst the infinity pool, decor and location are all great, the best thing by far is the service. Luca welcomed us with open arms telling us to treat his hotel as our own. Gabriella, the hotel manager could not do enough throughout our stay, booking restaurants,... More

We stayed here to celebrate a friends 40th birthday and we took over the whole hotel. The staff looked after our every need really well and did everything they could to make our stay as much fun as possible. Some rooms were style over function but that aside if your looking for a private retreat with a friendly atmosphere this... More

We enjoyed a delightful stay the highlight were the delightful staff, Giancarlo and Miriam to name just two! The setting just out of town, originally a farm house , now a contemporary cool modern facility. The food was local but fresh and stylish . Cole to town but far away to have some space!

Great location, 7min drive to Siracuse old town, but in a nice and calm surrounding. Our room had its own outside terrace, next to the river. Very nice place to sit and relax (just be aware of the mosquitos). Garden and pool are great. Staff is very friendly; tries to do whether they can for you. Facilities are however starting... More

We stayed for 6 nights in the beginning of April. Firstly we got an upgrade free of charge from standard to deluxe room just to make our stay more comfortable and hassle free with our little 19 months daughter. No stairs and lots more room for her to run around. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Restaurant food is high... More

Very nice time in this casual and cosy setting near Syracusa. Open space layout of the buildings, free parking. Warm welcome, attentive service and great restaurant. Super for families and friends, especially in the season when you can swim. Rooms are spacious and very clean. But especially the very friendly staff make you feel at home.

I would recommend this little paradise to anyone who is looking for a quite place close to the city center but immersed in the green. The hotel is in a very quite area, 5 minutes by push bike (provided by the hotel) or 15 minutes by canue (also provided by the hotel) from Ortigia, far from the noise and traffic.... More

Down a gravel drive off the busy exit road heading east is the unexpected Caol Ishka. Beside a sleepy river filled with large fish and moorhens is a low built spread of rooms, each comfortably large and well furnished with extensive lawns, a swimming pool and ample parking. The crowning glory is the cooking of young chef Zefarrano who uses... More
