I recommend this place for couples who want to have restful holidays. The hotel is very good, staff is nice, and rooms are very cosy. The only really regrettable thing is the food: the restaurant is VERY bad! I was expecting some good and fresh Italian food, instead of it we got some bad French - like food... A real... More

Our experience at this hotel was hardly memorable, just an average stay at an average hotel. We only stayed for one night and will probably never go back. When booking online the website says you will receive a free welcome drink upon arrival. However we were given nothing. I had to call down to the front desk and ask them... More

Stayed here for a couple of days with family and some friends. The overall experience was really nice (great attention to detail), and it has an amazing view of the Etna Volcano! 100% recommended!!!!!

Superb location at 45 minutes from Taormina with a superb view of the Etna. Great spa and pool area . Reception, all ground floor quite vintage and impersonal . Terrible room for such an hotel...poor food and soso service . Apparently very good golf though we didn't play there.

We stayed for 4 nights at the Picciolo Etna. The hotel and the room were nice, the spa and the swimming pool very nice. Breakfast was monotonous and poor quality.
