First impressions are poor for this place, however it does have redeeming qualities. The restaurant serves very good food and breakfast is a very nice spread. The morning beach is spectacular. The rooms however need help - beds are fine, bathroom has an adequate shower with good water pressure, so you will start the day refreshed.

We stayed over one night on our road trip from Naples to Palermo. While there, we stayed in the spacious suite and had dinner at the restaurant. We enjoyed being right on the sea the entire time, from the moment we arrived and opened the windows to the sight and sound of the waves below us, to our wonderful dinner...

The beach is absolutely gorgeous. If you are willing to stay in a dump them this is the right place. The walls are basically hollow, their were a bunch of flies in the room when we arrived. The room itself is completely rundown, the photos don't do it justice of how bad it really is. We stayed 30mins and booked...
