The hotel hosted a group of us from the University of Portsmouth for a week in early April. The staff were very helpful and attentive, the rooms clean and the food generous and wholesome. The setting is truly awesome, with views of Etna (erupting while we were here) and surrounded by orange trees which can be picked at will. We didn't try the pool as it was a bit early in the year but it would offer an excellent relief from the Summer sun. Parking is no problem at all as the hotel is set within its own farm grounds. Excellent value for money!

Nice staff, clean rooms and pool. Great cuisine. Formidable view on etna. The citrus orchard around the hotel is a gorgeus one. Well the pool wasnt usable because of the water coolness. Maybe a warm water pool could be a good investment for extra sezon.

It's a modern agritourism site..... Found a half an hour's drive from Catania's Fontanarossa Airport.....majestically situated in the midst of nature far from the village hustle and bustle.. Very welcoming staff and helpful as well..... It's small but very welcoming at the heel of Etna. It's a perfect place to escape everyday's hassle..... Food cooked on the site and yes it's like homemade. Very clean rooms and easy to find. Highly reccomendable! Well done to the owners and staff!

Very friendly staff, good English and German, comfortable and clean rooms with balcony. Great to visit Sicily’s east side. The pool is perfect, with warm water showers and clean toilets. The food is good, but the menu gets repetitive if you stay for more than a week. We had some (exceptional) rain in September, and mosquitos afterwards - bring an anti-histamine or get it a local pharmacy if you react strongly. There is a weekly BBQ with a quite entertaining singer on Tuesdays. Lots of space for jogging. The breakfast is good, but not quite up to the previous reviews. For all the quality that Terra dei Sogni (the “Land of Dreams”) offers, the price is quite reasonable.

Room Tip: Ground floor, on the west side (reception entrance). There is no sun in the morning and the rooms ar...

This is a very nice hotel centrally located on the east coast of Sicily between Taormina (15 min drive) and Catania (30 min drive). Also good to explore the Etna region (50 min drive to south Etna, 50 min to Randazzo). Also doable to get to Siracusa (1hrs05 drive) and Milazzo (1hrs15 drive from where you can catch the ferries to Eolie islands). The hotel is in a closed off area and is surrounded by orange and lemon trees and oleanders giving it a peaceful touch. No noise at all from road traffic.

The rooms are spacious, clean and well-maintained. They are also equipped with a table and chair, ample of open cupboards and a minibar, which you can use as a small fridge. Bathroom is also clean and the shower is properly maintained. We had a room with view on the Etna. Superb! Our rooms were on the second floor with sliding roof. No problem to us though some guests may not like this. The advantage is that these rooms have a big terrace with no neighbouring terrace. So great privacy.

Buffet breakfast give the guests enough choice: cornflakes, yoghurt, coffee (there is a coffee machine) and juices, bread, croissants, meat, cheese, fresh fruit and cake. Possibility of having breakfast outside.

There is a free wifi (didn't try it out but saw numerous guests busy on their ipad) and there is also a computer in the lobby free for use. There is also a bar open during the day.

The hotel has a large swimming pool and like the rest of the hotel, it is clean and well-maintained. There are sun chairs around the swimming pool and there is a sort of roof, which you can open or close depending on which suntan you want... There is the possibility to get changed / take a shower in an adjacent building.

Guests can also have dinner at the hotel. We had dinner once and the food was very nice (large portion) at a reasonable price.

And there is the staff: very friendly and helpful without being pushy. So you feel very welcome and at ease. They speak good English so this comes in handy as well if you don't speak Italian. Two thumbs up for them!

Room Tip: Choose a room with Etna view. There are not much opportunities to have a room with a view on a volca...

Our family of 4 have just returned from a 10 day holiday at this fantastic small hotel. Having read all the reviews beforehand we were not disappointed. We were made to feel so welcome What makes this hotel great is the staff who made us feel at home from the minute we arrived. We would like to say thankyou to Marco, Luka, and Priscilla who helped us with advice and directions on all of the local area, recommending great restaurants to directions to local beaches etc.

We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts particularly the croissants. It is in a great location to explore and when you arrive back after your travels its so quiet and beautiful. The pool is never crowded and its really lovely to sit outside your rooms on your terrace in the evenings. We are missing it already. Thanks for everything.
