I was only here for one night but loved it. Not perfect but a great holiday spot. The room was spacious, if a little dark, and overlooked the pool, with its own little terrace. All very clean, with friendly, helpful staff. The breakfast was Ok but I was a bit early and the bread did not arrive until 7.45am, after I had finished.
I recommend doing half board because the dinner was good. Nice atmosphere.

If you are looking for a quiet place, with nice and comfortable rooms and just relax, this place is what you are looking for. The hotel has stunning views of the Mediterranean. Although close by the town centre where you can find some nice restaurants, the food in the hotel is very good and reasonably priced. The breakfast is a bit repetitive and not a huge choice, but similar to these type of hotels in Italy. Having a car is recommended as we went to some beautiful places within a short distance. Not many cars on the road in Sicily so this is a big plus.

the negative side is that the breakfast menu,although not that poor,it was not changed almost at all for the three days that we stayed there!other than that i find it charming,it is true that you need a car due to it's remote location which is good considering that it is close to many of sicily atractions but kind of isolated in brucoli,where are not that many things to do,but the costal line is very beautiful!the pool of the hotel is great and with a wonderful view,and i would recomand a sea view or front room!

Room Tip: sea view or sea front is a must!

Dear guest
We are glad you enjoyed the beautiful view and the cleanliness of the pool. We believe that the charm of our hotel is due to the fact that we are far away from the stress and city noise. Moreover, our breakfast is characterized by standard products, but every day we change the baked goods.
We hope to see you soon as our guest,
Kind regards

The hotel is located at a remote place. The buildings are of African style. Very poor breakfast. We didn't have dinner included but what we saw the other guests had for it, while we ordered on menu, was pleasant and tasty looking, better that dishes on menu. Although pizza was great! There is no beach (the hotel is in the top of a cliff). A good place for keeping the luggage and sleeping but too expensive for such aims.

We are glad you enjoyed our pizza and restaurant. The location of our hotel guarantees the necessary relax to enjoy the holidays. Our hotel is just few minutes from Brucoli by car, a very famous summer village. In addition, it is located between Catania and Syracuse, two of the most visited cities of Sicily. Finally, our continental breakfast offers a wide variety of choice of local products.

We hope to see you soon as our guest.

This is a beautifully designed hotel in a lovely location with stunning views from the terrace restaurant directly over the Ionian coast line and across to Mount Etna. It has a nice pool and is a peaceful stay for a short break.
Evening meals were reasonably priced though we tended to head down to the nearby village of Bruccoli which is a 5 minute drive away. You do need a car I'd say but the location is well placed to explore the sights around this corner of Sicily being about half an hour in either direction from Catania and Siricusa.

This is a nice hotel where you can spend a peaceful and quiet stay. The terrace in the restaurant is one of the highest attractions. The pool was wonderful and the colchonettes that are available to everyone are very enjoyable. We took half board which is a good decision since good restaurants are not available by the hotel. The breakfast has the minimum requirements and the dinner is heterogeneous (some days were good and others poor). The rooms are comfortable and spacious.

Room Tip: If travelers are quiet (as was in our case) we highly recommend a room around the pool.

The hotel is beautifully located with a sea view from its garden.
The rooms are clean and comfortable.
However:
When I asked at the reception if they have an elevator, the clerk told me there was no need for one as everything was on a single level.
This proved to be false as I had to carry my suitcase up some 12 steps, which I had to use every time I came and left the room. Had the clerk been more attentive and truthful, he could offer me a room on the lower level, which would save me the effort.

Another problem which caused irritation was the service during dinner: We had to wait 1 hour between each dish. The rather simple (and not very tasty) dinner - antipasta, main course and desert - took 2 hours. They even did not manage to serve the whole main course in one serving so we had to eat the vegetables while waiting for the fish.

And last - We were lucky to have good weather, but in case of rains - the rooms are not connected to the dining building so one has to walk there in open space.

Room Tip: Take low level rooms, near the reception office.

Dear Guest,

We thank you for your reviews about us and services.

Our hotel is a resort and we haven't an elevator for reaching our rooms,
but our hotel was built in a way that gives our guests the possibility to admire the best views such as the sea or Mount Etna for reaching they're room by the way.
And for suitcases we have our bellman in order to simplify their journey.
About the dinner, we have to clinch that you was part of a Group and nobody complained about the dinner and we are sorry for your sensation about the delay.
At least we are happy for your sunny days during yore Holiday but let we say that in case of rain our staff is well organized.We have golf-cars to bring our guests to their rooms without having to get wet.

Hoping to see you again, we remain at your complete disponsal.

Kind regards
