My wife and I lived in Italy and Sicily for five and a half years but that was a long time ago and we always wanted to return for a visit. We had the opportunity to return in May 2014 with our friends and wanted to show them something special. I contacted my friend Sybil Haynes of Dolce Vita Adventures (http://www.dolcevitaadventures.com) and she was able to arrange the accommodations for us at the hotel
From our check-in on the first day of our stay to our final check-out, the hotel staff went out of their way to ensure that we would always remember our visit. We had a 7 am tour departure the day after our arrival and the staff provided us with a full buffet breakfast prior to our departure. The breakfast was normally served at 7:00 am but they cheerfully honored our request.
The rooms were clean and comfortable.
We would not hesitate to book the hotel for future visits
