After reading the reviews for this hotel, I decided to book a superior room as I thought they were the refurbished ones. When we checked in, we were shown a small room on the -2 level which although did have a nice terrace and view, had a really shabby bathroom – no bath, just a tiny shower tray with a small curtain around it. I can honestly say I have never seen a hotel bathroom like it.
We went back to reception and were told that the hotel was full but we could try back the next day and they might be able to give us a different room. As we were only there for a few nights, we decided to unpack and make the best of it. However the first time we tried to shower, the whole bathroom ended being flooded. In the end we worked out the only way was to put lots of towels down on the floor and just have a very careful hand shower - this really was not what I expected for £200.00 per night!
After the disappointment when we arrived, I initally wanted to give this hotel a 1 star but the staff were all very nice and did their best to help and overall we did have a nice holiday. Also the hotel is in a good location and the pool area is beautiful as are the views of Mount Etna and the coast. It's just a pity that we were fobbed off with a room that had a bathroom that could definitely not be called superior..
