We spent 4 days @ the Resort Grand Hotel Minareto. Even if we arrived early in the morning, we got immediately the room, # 271, which face the bay of Siracusa. The view is breathtaking, with the Etna visibly clear on the ground. The room was clean and with all the comforts, first quality cosmetic products, fridge fully served, On the north-side there is the access to the sea trough the rocks, on the south-side there is the private beach, with sand and cristallclear. Both sides are furnished with sunbeds. The package was including breakfast, served from 7:30 AM until 10:30 AM, which was just excellent, with a big variety of fresh pastries, fresh pressed orange juice and fresh fruit, a big choice of cheese including a fantastic fresh Ricotta-Cheese, cappuccino, plus eggs, fresh bread and many others... We also spent 2 dinner @ the Hotel-Restaurant, quality very good, quantity could be a littlle more, service top. All people, @ the lobby or @ the restaurant as well as on the beach extremely friendly and attentive. The Hotel organize a free shuttle-service to the city center of Siracusa-Ortigia, is also possibile to rent a Bike. Because of its location I recommend to rent a car to move around the area without problems. In few words: our vacation was just great. I woulnd not have any problem to give 5 stars, if only I can make I little remark is the missing wireless Internet Connection in the room. Indeed, I got a cable for my Laptop, but unfortunately did not work out because my computer doesnt support that kind of cable. Since I use the computer a lot for work, I had to go to the lobby in order to use it. But, as said, everything else was just beautiful. Surly we will come backj!
