Stayed for one week at this hotel just across road from beach. Rooms very spacious and everything spotlessly clean + air conditioning. Staff were friendly and helpful. We were a bit disappointed on arriving at being given a room on the main street with no sea view, but in fact it was not that noisy and it was interesting to view the local streetlife below. There is a walk to the hotel down hill from where the buses drop guests, but it takes no more than 5 mins. The only downside was that the food was disappointing, in particular the continental breakfast (as mentioned in previous reviews) which could easily be improved with addition of some fresh fruit, yoghurts etc. However, there are plenty of bars/cafes along the seafront within a short walk so it is probably better to just book B&B. There are no bar prices so beware - if you wish for a drink it is better to go out to a local cafe or visit the supermarket over the road. Also, there is an 8 Euro charge per day to use the beach facilities (sunbeds, umbrella etc) but as it was getting towards the end of the season lower rates could be had elsewhere along the beach as all the beach cafes have their own stretch of beach, some with changing facilities as well as shower, toilets etc. The beach is gravelly and shelves quite steeply into the water so perhaps not so good for families with small children. The resort itself is fairly unspoilt and quiet as a seaside base and seems to be popular with locals at weekends. There is a pretty town square with cafes and often some musical entertainment in the evenings. It was nice to see locals of all ages out enjoying the warm evenings as well as the tourists. Letojanni is a good base to visit Mount Etna, Siracuse and Taormina (which is incredibly expensive but easily reached by local bus), but beware a trip to Agrigento is over 3 hrs drive away. Sicily is lovely & I think we would go back just for the ice-cream!
