We stayed here for 3 nights in March and were very happy with our time at this hotel. While it was a struggle to find it the first time, it was easy after that, and it is a convenient location for making day trips to other parts of eastern Sicily: Messina, Etna, Catania.
The staff are multi-lingual, fun to chat with, and very helpful in giving directions to local restaurants, which admittedly are mostly a 15-20 minute drive.
Our room was very spacious, and while we normally prefer older hotels with 'character', the modern design of this hotel was very appealing, with numerous interesting design details.
The breakfast buffet offered a much greater selection than we expected. We especially enjoyed learning to operate the fresh juicer.
We would like to echo another reviewer who mentioned the Plaza Ciclope. Convenient spot to pick up picnic supplies.
If you are busy sightseeing by car, it would be easy to miss an interesting attraction that is virtually in the hotel backyard. Walk out the hotel driveway, turn left, and follow the signs (past the lemon orchards, overflowing with fruit!) to the walks down to the beach. You will shortly come to a T in the road, with one walk going to the left and one to the right. We only took the one to the right, through a lane, then down a steep trail, surrounding an old estate. There are great views, even if you only go part way down to the beach.

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms have very easy access. Although it is near the highway, it was very quiet.

Arriving by car ,we found it a little bit difficult to find this hotel . It is rather far away from Catania City Center . So you need a car or have to pay a taxi which takes you there .
When having arrived we got the impression that you are in the middle of nowhere .
The staff and the standard of the hotel made us forget that . Friendly, helpful staff , clean,modern rooms , good breakfast .
Very far to get to the beach .

If you plan on staying near Catania, you could do a lot worse than this hotel. All in all, it is not too difficult to find. Coming from the airport, you stay on the SS 18 in the direction of Messina. As you get close to Acireale, watch for the signs to both the hotel and the Ciclope Commercial center. I’d recommend a GPS for further clarity.

The hotel grounds are well kept, with ample parking. The room I stayed in was sufficient, although the bed could have been a little more comfortable. The bathroom is OK, but there is no tub, only a shower. The shower has no curtain and only one of those half-dividers, so the floor may get a little wet. Water pressure and hot water supply seemed good. Wi-Fi is free; you only need to ask for a code at the front desk. There is a bar with snacks at the front desk as well. Breakfast is included in the price and was quite good. The rooms also have coffee/tea making facilities. There is also a small refrigerator in the room to store food and drinks in.

Restaurants in the area are very hard to find. You can get food in the Ciclope market, but there isn’t much in the way of hot food. If you are an early dinner type of person (before 7 PM), your choices are very limited all over the island. The desk clerks may be able to help with dinner ideas. I couldn’t find anything reasonable within walking distance.

Driving on Sicily is sheer madness. I don’t know what advice to give here other than hope and pray you don’t get into an accident. I’ve never seen such impatient drivers, not even in the Middle East. Unfortunately, this hotel’s location pretty much demands that you have a car of your own. Good luck. Otherwise, the scenery on the island is magnificent. Although Agrigento is a two hour drive away, I’d recommend going out to see the Valley of the Temples.
