“Relax by the beach”
Reviewed October 19, 2008

Staff really helpful and friendly - everything we asked for was provided within a few minutes. The room was very comfortable with a lovely view to the sea. However, the air-conditioning was totally useless. Swimming pool was lovely but the dreadful music was solely for the entertainment of the lifesavers.
We found this a very convenient hotel to stay whilst we visited surrounding places of interest.

  • Liked — close to the beach
  • Disliked — dud air conditioning

Our room had a pretty decent view facing the beach with the dining room as an obstacle of the beach. No big deal. We spoke with the general manager about the room and he made all the arrangements via email. At this time in Sicily it is very hot! Our room air conditioning had a setting of 27.0C
and very seldom moved from that.
Thats around 80-83 F.degrees.
We asked the desk and the General Manager on numerous occasions to lower the setting since they had full control of the air temp. They reluctantly moved it down to 26.5C which is still warm.
We explained that we payed for the room and cannot be comfortable in those conditions. It was like fighting city hall.
I can remember only one morning being cool the whole seven days we were there. It was miserable!! When we complained at the desk, so did others. They were also Italians as well. So its not the spoiled American life style. Not to mention we had been all over Italy the two weeks before with this seldom being an issue. Its not where the hotel was inexpensive either.
At night the hotel fenced off the beach so you could not walk the beach. The pool was off limits after 5pm.
The noise from the pool area was unbearable!! At 8am the over modulated mic from the so called DJ, was blasting all day well into the early morning hours every night!! It was like a disco in the next room. Who was this hotel catering too? We realized it was a beach but no one could get on the beach at night and why did the music have to be so loud? Not everyone was partying to they dropped. Most of their customers were seniors anyway, get a clue!!! We had a couple friends come up to our room to visit us and the hotel told us twice, it was not allowed!!
They watched us all the time and knew when we were coming and going. It was freaky to say the least. My sons were trying to find a place to eat and the general manager followed them to the parking lot and directed them to their over priced restaurant.
25 euros per person. It was a unpleasant stay and will never go back. We told our friends and relatives in the area about our experience and they shook their heads in disbelief.
If these problems don't bother you then go ahead a book.
Not for us though.

Our group of 8 travelers just returned from staying at the Hotel Baia d'Oro in Licata, Italy. It was a wonderful experience and I would return tomorrow if I could. The hotel is beautifully appointed, the rooms are gracious, and the staff was very accommodating. We had full board, but did not return in time to eat anything but breakfast which was very tasty. All of us had a very good experience both in the hotel and in traveling around Sicily. What an undiscovered paradise!

I stayed in this hotel just before Christmas 2007 and had a very relaxing stay.
The entire hotel was decorated and furnished to a high standard and I was told that it had been recently renovated.
I stayed full board as I didn't want to go far, and all the meals were excellent, in a beautiful restaurant with large windows overlooking the bay, and included wine, with superb attentive service.
The reception staff were very helpful; there was a wide range of abilities with the English language but those who were not able to speak English well were also very pleasant as we tried to communicate with my limited Italian.
The room was nicely appointed, clean bathroom, balcony, modern TV, with a view over the beach and bay.
I stayed here in the winter and didn't use the outside facilities at all, but there is direct access to the beach and a decent sized pool.
All in all, excellent value for money; I would love to return here in the summer.
