So this hotel is very hard to find especially if your not from the area. Me and my girlfriend came all the way out from Catania to stay here and got lost for an hour, we called the hotel and they said "oh yea it's very hard to explain how to get here over the phone so we'll send someone to meet you were your at and you can follow them here." 45 mins later we were still sitting around wondering were our "escort" was. My girlfriend called them back to have them tell us they looked for us and couldnt find us so they gave up, keep in mind they didn't even bother taking our phone # down to call us back and let us know what was going on. When we finally found this hidden hotel we were told that there would be no air conditioning all weekend because it was broke, keep in mind this was in mid July. We couldn't even enjoy the pool because they had about 20 tables wrapped around it and about 15 people working for preperation of a wedding reception that was going to start at 9pm. If you looked at the pictures of this Hotel layout imagine trying to have privacy in your room while having to keep your shutters wide open because of the heat and having the party goers staring right up at you. Of course the music was blasting so there was no chance of getting any sleep since the reception was scheduled till 1230am, and forget about trying to find easy parking with all those people there. Once we realized all these negatives just wasn't worth the headache we packed up our stuff got our refund and booked a last minute room in taormina.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- "L'Antica Ruota" è una vecchia e caratteristica masseria del primo '900 con all'interno la "Senia", un marchingegno per il sollevamento dell'acqua da un grande pozzo ed utilizzato per irrigare l'estesa piana coltivata ad agrumeti. Accuratamente ristrutturata ed adibilita ad albergo-ristorante, sorge a Capo d'Orlando, rinomato centro turistico e commerciale sul mare, dal cui porto si raggiungono le incantevoli isole Eolie, patrimonio dell'Unesco, tanto per il loro fascino selvaggio, quanto per la storia che ci riporta agli albori dell'uomo.
