Like the reviewer before me, I stayed over the weekend as part of a Groupon deal with 3 other people and was slightly concered by the reviews before.
However, as soon as we got there, I couldnt have been happier with what we found. A beautiful hotel with lovely staff, great facilities and a totally calming ambience. Still very confused as to why people didnt rate this hotel highly.
For a buffet, the food was varied and fresh and as hot as can be achieved whilst in a buffet. Breakfast was perfectly adequate which a wide selection of food and drink (although the egg was slightly 'unusual')
The rooms might not have been as big as others, but all came with a balcony and amazing views. They were clean and had everything you could need.
The pool area was incredible, and the view could never get old. There was a bar there and lots of sunbeds without feeling cramped or intruding on the relaxing environment.
Finally, the staff were great and really added that extra thumbs up with the experience. Rosa and Salvatore really helped with advice for the area and our excursions and the staff in the restuarant and pool bar couldnt have been more helpful.
Yes, the beach is a shuttle ride away (and you cant walk there) but it's worth it once you get there and the shuttle is free.
One thing I would recommend would be to hire a car as that keeps costs down and helps you to explore.
Highly recommended, a great base to relax and/or explore Sicily!
