The most personable staff I've ever encountered, incredible hospitality, and breathtaking setting. This is a destination that must be visited in ones lifetime. I arrived late and was greeted by a staff accommodating and easy to please. Great wine with a view if the sea, then, course after course of remarkable seafood.

We had an awesome journey at this very charming hotel, the service was very good and location excellent with top view on the Etna volcano and the sea coasts. The breakfast is complete, and dinner menu suggests local receipts.
