Stayed here with my family in Juy 2016. The location was some 10 kilometers outside Syracuse and there were really no restaurants, bars etc nearby - but this we were prepared for so we had rented a car for the full week. The general impression is that the resort is somewhat outdated. Rooms were ok but not fantastic. We had... More

This resort is probably great if you're travelling with your family and a lot of kids.. there is kids everywhere! Lot's of music by the pools and kids-disco every night. The all inclusive food is totally ok, the rooms and service is ok. If you dont have a car communications into Siracuse is problematic and taxi is expensive. Siracuse however... More

This is a tricky review to write. I can only describe the resort as a sort of Italian Centrparc. There was a lot going on and Italian families seemed to be having great holidays. Being a middle aged couple, we did not visit for this type of holiday and so did not join in but Arenella Resort provided a good... More

I stayed here in August 2015 with my wife, a 4 year old and a <1 year old; we were in a family room (the 3300 block - bedroom and living area separate) and were half board. OK, so let's be clear, I did not like the Arenella and do not recommend it to anyone unless you obtain a steep... More

We had the time of our lives! Went with my boyfriend 1st-8th Sep 2015. Beautiful resort, big clean rooms, aircondition works very well. Buffet is a bit crowded sometimes, but the restaurant is very spacious. Many staff don't speak English, but that's ok. Love that you can fill up 1L mugs of drinks and bring to the table instead of...

The room was clean. The pools were very nice. The garden is beautiful. But the resort is too large. 10 to 15 min walking to the swimming pool with the kids was awfool. For the beach use the small train because it is very far. The "all inclusive" isn't really all. You have to choose on a small list. The... More

I think it is pretty special that a big resort like this only have 2 restaurants. One buffet restaurant, and one small a la carte restaurant with only 30 seats. The room is ok, the aircondition is very effective, short walk to a great beach. However, the breakfast is messy, few types of meat, juices, and bread. Furthermore, the hotel... More
