The Ipanema Hotel has great staff and looks like you are still in the 70s. Unfortunately the rooms also have not changed much since the 70s and are in need of a serious renovation. Staff: Very friendly staff - among the best I have ever experienced. Rooms: Very old rooms with basic commodities. All rooms have a great view of... More

Everything good about this hotel. Set in the 1970's but with all the great features including wonderful staff. great views from the balconies and a stunning terrace and pool on the roof. The Gala dinner one night a week was fantastic although the normal evening meal whilst excellent was a touch repetitive. still wouldn't change anything and would certainly return.

Christina and Marianne in reception friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Restaurant staff also very jolly. Pool really nice after a hot day out. Quiet location but easy to access anywhere from here.

Although not most modern of hotels this had such a great retro feel and chilled vibe that you can overlook a few superficial aspects. Restaurant service superb, proper old fashioned service, good choice of dishes daily, always superbly cooked. Sicilian night buffet amazing, waiting staff brilliant, reception staff so helpful, cleaning sublime. Minor issues, - tiles on terrace need replacing... More

We paid a fortune to stay at this hotel which is firmly a 3 star and nothing more and left with a feeling of disappointment. The plus side= The room was spacious and clean (if a bit drab) with a nice balcony and view over the bay. The evening meals were tasty if a bit repetitive. The location is good,... More

What a wonderful gem of a hotel - perfect location, comfortable rooms, superb restaurant dining room and the most gorgeous traditional Sicilian food cooked by fantastic chefs. Views are fabulous and the pool and sun terrace on the roof are excellent for relaxing and soaking up the sun. The receptionists offer a wealth of information and advice, and the waiters... More
