“We were satisfied”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

The hotel was very clean, the rooms a little bit old fashioned, but it was OK. The food was excellent, and the staff were kind and helpful. The pool is situated in very unique atmosphere, and rather big.

It is apparently a 3 Star hotel but the Pomara hospitality and service deserves 7 Stars.

This family run hotel has an adjacent restaurant where the food is amazing. The Hotel Pomara is surrounded by the most splendid countryside where all the staff welcomed us with a wonderful natural smile. It is definitely the hotel I shall be longing to visit again because it forms part of the magic of Sicily that I love.

This hotel made my holiday .It was just wonderful for our family I m cealiac so most of the time I struggle eating good food but in this occassion the hotel was catering for gluten free breakfast lunch and dinner with all the trims the place is very quite rather rural and so much caracter down the village it is so close to so many wonderful site Caltagirone e Villa Romana Agrigento and much more .
I cannot thanks enough the Family Pomara to make our Holiday so special and i really hope to visit again in the near future .

Room Tip: we had a great view from our balcony situated on the top left of the entrance

The restaurant is excellent and Johnny the waiter is a scream.
Our food was delicious. I really appreciated the pool and wifi in the room.
I thouhgt the staff were really professional.
We had a wonderful pizza in the local place and the best ice cream of our trip at a very unassuming place down the street.

We picked this hotel as a central place to explore the south east of Sicily. Whilst there we drove west as far as Agrigento and east to Siracusa. Main roads are generally good but road signs often just disappear completely - be prepared to get lost.

That said, we had no trouble finding the hotel once in San Michele, as mentioned in other reviews it is up a steep hill and behind the hotel restaurant which you come to first. Ample parking (although you may have to park round the side when the restaurant's busy) and then up the stairs into the hotel lobby. Staff were friendly and check-in was straight forward. Slight mix up on the room configuration but sorted immediately at the desk. The room was large if basic but had sufficient storage space. Bathroom was large and facilities fine, shower a little small for some. I found the bed to be quite hard.
The fridge couldn't be plugged in as the cable was too short to reach the socket. Air conditioning worked very well as did the free wifi probably because one of the routers was right outside our door on the first floor.
Excellent views over the countryside from the rooms at the front of the hotel which had a small balcony, table and chair, those at the back didn't have a view at all.
Buffet breakfast was fruit juice, tea and coffee, rolls and jam, meat and cheese and was served in the hotel. Dinner was available at reasonable prices in the restaurant which opened at 8pm most nights. The food was very good even when they were very busy which seemed to be every night! We found in most places in Sicily that the choice is virtually the same everywhere. A couple of evenings we ventured out - twice to a restaurant about 4km east and once to the local pizzeria just down the road.
The staff were most accommodating and once you start talking to Mr Pomara and family (we found French easiest) then they are most interested in where you are going etc etc, and they appreciate you're trying out your Italian/Sicilian on them.
All in all an agreeable hotel in a place where choice is limited.

Hotel Pomara is situated minutes away from Caltagirone (famous for it's ceramics) and Piazza Armerina (Villa dei Casali world heritage in mosaic). In this sleepy hamlet of San Michele, it all started as a Restaurant which attracted people from all over Sicily . Eventually the hotel was built to accomodate diners who found the food to be excellent. I always judge a place by the number of locals who return and this Restaurant is a must as it boasts an excellent sicilian cuisine at affordable prices. The Hotel , well managed by Mr Davide Pomara and family is squeaky clean and offers travellers a comfortable stay . A well kept swimming pool offers a relaxing stay and a panorama of the undulating hills surrounding it. We are a group of bikers and have made Hotel Pomara a second home for our trips in Sicily.
