Stayed here a few times now and it a good location on the edge of Noto. The bar and reception staff are friendly and helpful even though they are mostly new. The breakfast selection is tasty and fresh - would thoroughly recommend and sure that I will be back next year!

We stayed here for one night. The reception area is gorgeous - bright, modern, very spacious and welcoming. The staff were all lovely except for the pool guys. We loved the big spacious room but the view was dreadful- a fire station and muck hills. More sun loungers are needed at the pool, and the pool guys need to get... More

New, modern and clean, large rooms, nice pool, decent buffet breakfast. It's 4 star by Italian standard, in a few years' time it would be run down. Parking if free in front but we didn't have much trouble parking in Noto. It's further down the street but it's only 10 minute walk from the old town. It does not have... More

A modern hotel within walking distance of the centre of Noto, and well located for touring the area. Dinner and breakfast were provided. Has a pool and good car-park. Rooms are clean with views (not of the town centre). The town centre is a walk of about 10 minutes ‘up-hill’ There is also a super-market close by.

As a single traveller I got a suite of rooms, with a Jacuzzi and 2 balconies! The hotel was clean and breakfasts very nice. I was travelling with a Saga group and the evening dinners left a lot to be desired, set meals, very much Anglicized, and not what the cuisine I expected in Italy. The hotel was within easy... More

Big modern hotel in walking distance to the historical town center of Noto. Rooms are modern, clean and roomy, coming with a nice balcony. A proper full breakfast is served. The hotel has many rooms, also being used by groups of travellers. There was no disturbing noise. Free parking is available on site.

Stayed here first 3 nights of tour. Large room with terrace. Staff attentive, food good. Pity the table napkins at dinner were always damp! Lift to dining room didn't seem to work at night. Easy walk into town from here. Noto is an interesting town and a good start to the tour.

Efficient, friendly and capable. This isn't the time of year to be visiting Sicily, but the hotel made it comfortable for us. The food is wholesome if you can find your way to the dining room, which seemed somewhat remote form the rooms. The lifts are available and adequate so one shouldn't get lost. A good bar, with a very... More
