The hotel was under staffed with no working wifi, which appeared to be normal, an arrogant major domo in the resturant who was down right rude and the food average. no one to help with the baggage though i walk with two crutches. the room was small with a view of a wall and the road

Nice pool, located on beach. Wifi extremely poor. Breakfast was no more than ok. Room decor from the sixties. Hotel is clean. We did not have lunch or dinner at hotel so cannot comment. Porto Empedocles is a very ordinary town. Overall evaluation is average.

This is a lovely hotel and we had two rooms with the large terraces on the second floor a beautiful view. The restaurant is not the best and I would not recommend it and the bartender is really slow. The beds are too hard for my liking but the rooms are very clean and spacious. If you are going to... More

beautiful rooms, nice bathrooms perfect Sicilian Dinner and international standard breakfast. Qite calm this time of the year - early May the Sea is too cold to have party at the beach, so we could fall into a perfect sleep after visiting all the fascinating places.

The hotel is beautiful and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was delicious and had many options. The staff spoke excellent English. The rooms were well equipped and clean. The 24-hour check-in is great. The hotel is on the beach, but still quite a walk away from Escala dei Turchi.

The hotel is nice and placed just a few steps away from the sea. The room was fine, with a small balcony. When the window was open, we could hear the sound of the sea very clearly. The restaurant was good and not too expensive, as usual in hotel restaurants. The only major drawback was the very bad WiFi network.... More

Had a nice short 4 days holiday at Vila Romana with my family in July. It is not a modern hotel, but it is fine. The swimming pool and tanning beads are great, it was lovely to wake up to a sunny swim every morning. Breakfast was fine, big assortment good enough quality. While Porto Empodocle isn't quite the looker... More

Whilst visting family in Sicily my partner and I wanted a few days away to ourselves. Lovely hotel, staff extremely friendly and accomodating. Pool fantastic, clean. Beach directly outside the front of the hotel, a little disappointing, (hence only a "very good" rating for the review), due to large rocks, slippery and sharp but a 5 minute stroll, beautiful sand...

Our group stayed there for one night in October and was badly disappointed. Unfriendly staff, food – nothing to recommend about, small rooms, broken furniture and missing lamp. Although rooms have nice view to the see and hotel has lots of parking places, better look to sleep in another hotel.
