A beautiful secluded high end resort, although “resort” is not how I would describe this fabulous old farm conversion into a 5 suite piece of paradise. You are made to feel part of the family from the owner Lucia, assistant Claudia and the rest of the staff. Nothing is too much trouble. High quality fixtures and fittings throughout and peace personified. Lovely meals and excellent service. A “shout out” to Cecilia for the dinner service. 😊. 15 mins to Siracusa and also close to nearby places of note to explore. I would highly recommend this hidden gem (and I write only a few reviews).

We stayed here in June 2019 and I've been thinking about going back ever since. This is a five-star, high-end, luxury resort. From top to bottom, this is a resort that is well thought out and excellently executed. Sicily is a wonderful place and this is a great place to stay while exploring the southeast part of the island. I would happily and unqualifiedly recommend this hotel. The hotel has an on site restaurant with a wonder chef. All of the food we had was impeccable. You'll enjoy eating here after a long day exploring the island. The grounds are beautiful, rustic, and peaceful. The pool area is exceptional. We all live busy and hectic lives. Take some time by the pool to unwind and relax! The top quality of this place is the people. They bring hospitality to a new level. From the proprietor, Seniora Luccia, to the manager, Claudia, and all the way down to the servers and room attendants, every single person here makes you feel at home. We had an experience that I think exemplifies this. We had been feeling run down when we arrived to the Coraly having been travelled from Milan, to the Amalfi Coast and then onto the Coraly. I requested a taxi for a quick trip to the pharmacy. Instead, the on site gardener immediately volunteered to drive me to the pharmacy himself, wait there with me, while I purchased what I needed and then drove me back! You simply don't find this level of service anywhere, certainly we haven't. Indeed, I've stayed at hotels at higher price points, that were not able to attain this level of service. In short, I'd recommend the Donna Coraly wholeheartedly. A magical wonderful place! Diciamo, grazie di vostra ospitalita, Donna Coraly!

We stayed 4 nights in July 2019 to the Dona Coraly resort. Everything is close to perfection : rooms, service, venue, food and location. It's so quiet, people are so nice, helpful and discrete. Definitely a must in Sicilia ! PS : special thanks for having taken into acount the food intolerances of my son.

This was our 3rd and final hotel of our tour of Sicily and it was absolutely super. The hotel is small (5 rooms) and it has beautiful gardens, but it’s real strength lies in the hospitality of all the staff. Nothing is too much trouble and every wish is catered for. A big thank you to Cecilia, Claudia and of course the owner Lucia who treats every guest like a long time friend. The hotel arranged a whole day cruise on a beautiful sailing yacht - amazing experience with fabulous food which arrived one course after the other. Enrico and Virginie were so hospitable. The hotel also arranged a tour of Ortigia and Noto in a vintage cabriolet Citroen Dyane which was an absolute hoot - guide and driver were brilliant company. I would thoroughly recommend both tours but you must book in advance! The hotel has one particular strength- the quality of food offered at night in the restaurant was incredible. I am sure that Luca will soon be the recipient of a Michelin star or other prestigious awards, but what an asset of the hotel to have such a young guy on board who can prepare such fresh amazing dishes using the best ingredients at a very reasonable price. He comes out and chats with you and is driven by a desire to produce the very best dining experience possible. The food was so good that we ate in the hotel every night, each meal better than the previous, and we were treated like royalty. Excellent choice.

We booked this last minute and it was a really great surprise. The people are very warm, the rates were reasonable, the food was good. It’s about halfway between Siracusa and Noto. It’s only a few rooms and very quiet. Siracusa was a little hectic and it was nice to return to the quiet. It’s easy to park in Siracusa and very feasible to stay outside and drive in. We’ve traveled a lot in Italy and I’d never heard of Noto, though I had seen the Café Sicilia chef’s table episode, I just hadn’t focused on where it was in Sicily. You can easily fill up a day in Noto and the light at sunset is very nice. We also considered staying in Modica or Reguza and visited both. Both are further out. I’d heard good things about Reguza but could have easily skipped it. I liked Modica better, my wife liked it a lot. It feels a little like Matera, but there are a lot more cars and if I had to pick, I’d spend my time in Noto.
