We stayed at this hotel recently for 10 days. Plenty of time to form an opinion. I am always very honest and hopefully not unreasonable in my reviews.
The Positives: This hotel is very clean, it is comfortable. The pool and sunbeds are well maintained and there is a very diligent Lifeguard, both for the pool area and the beach. It was very quiet and very relaxingg. The bedroom was reasonable size, and the balcony was large, we had booked a sea view room. The staff in the dining room and in the bar and very pleasant and friendly.
The Negatives: This hotel is at the very end of Letojanni resort. The photographs on the webpage show that it is possible to walk along the beach into Letojanni. This is INCORRECT. It is not possible to walk from the hotel along the beach to the promonade that runs through Letojanni. It is an unpleasant walk from the hotel either on a dangerous road with no footpath or along some very nasty small passageways past the large rubbish bins, to get to the promonade. This meant using the car every evening.
The private beach is not as depicted in the hotel website photographs. it is a tiny strip in front of a concrete wall, just room for a sunbed. Sometimes if the sea is high, not even room for that. Unpleasant to say the least. If this is due to coastal problems, it should be corrected on the website.
It is quite expensive to eat in the hotel in the evening, approximately 14 Euro for Risotto or pasta and then 15 - 18 Euro for a main course. The breakfasts were just OK. Not a lot of variety and very poor juices. I had ordered ahead to ensure that gluten free options were available for my partner. On the first evening this consisted for a packet of "Tuc" crackers ! We complained and breads and croissants were provided two days later. But no gluten free cereal or pasta, which is plentiful in Sicily.
The showers are TINY. Could hardly turn around in them.
Overall, based on my expectations I would not recommend this hotel, primarily due to its locatation, at the far end of the resort, and is very poor, non existant "private" beach.
