We stayed here for 10 nights from 14th June for our honeymoon and we were certainly not disappointed with our decision.
The hotel is about 50 mins - 1 hour by bus from Catania airport and the bus stop is 100 yards from the hotel.
On arrival at the hotel we were greeted by Rosanna who checked us in but also personally took us to our room, showed us the aircon etc..
Our room was a perfect size with a TV, balcony, black out blinds, and a safe (which was free to use).
We then went out for a walk and on our return a couple of hours later we found that we were given a ice bucket with a complimentary bottle of prosecco !
Everything about this hotel is perfect, the decor is very nice yet the hotel is very modem from the aircon to the room keys which you just wave over the panel outside.
It is very clean and no matter what time of day it is there always seems to be someone cleaning.
The pool area is also spotless and is a nice size (bigger then I expected from seeing photo's).
The owner / manager seems to be around most of the day keeping a eye on things and all the staff are friendly & cannot do enough for you.
We only had bed and breakfast, the breakfast was varied and very nice. We did not have dinner in the hotel so cannot comment but the tables were set up on the terrace area every evening and it did look nice.
Location wise , the bus stop is a 1 min walk from the hotel and from there you can get a bus to Taormina which costs only EUR 6 for 2 people return. The bus take about 15 - 30 mins depending on time of day you leave.
There are many bars, restaurants and cocktail bars only a short walk from the hotel, many of very reasonably priced and delicious food.
Upon checkout we were given a gift from the hotel which was a ornamental plate with the hotel name and picture.
If I could give this hotel 10 stars I would.
