we were in sicily for a break, and we found this wonderful hotel in modica, a unesco baroque awarded city. the hotel was a 17th century building with statues and frescoed ceilings. for us was like going into the past of sicily. the breakfast and the dinner in the hotel restaurant were amazing, all tipical sicilian food! the spa in the grottoes down the building was perfect for relaxing and having a nice massage.Andthe hotel was right in the center of the city, at walking distance from anything interesting. we truly recommend it to anybody!

Room Tip: the balconi suite is amazing!

This place is incredible. And we had it completely to ourselves! Which meant the spa too.... you have to pay extra for that, but it's so worth it! Big jacuzzi pool, sauna, steam room.... heaven.
The room itself (we were in the Bishops room) was wonderfully ornate and sombre, perhaps too dark for some though. We saw all the rooms and they were all very beautiful and high quality, the Romance room with a bath actually in the room.
The bathroom was completely tiled, with beautiful mosaic tiling, and the toiletries were divine.
The restaurant wasn't open unfortunately (mid-May is out of season), but it really is as central as you can get so there are plenty of great restaurants nearby. We were craving pizza so we went to La Perla around the corner, on the recommendation of the lovely receptionist.
Breakfast was fantastic; beautiful fresh pastries and cakes, cold meats, cheese, omelette, fresh fruit, and in the grotto restaurant, great atmosphere.
I couldn't recommend this place highly enough.
