Loved the modern decor and fixtures, breakfast was simple but fresh, fantastic large shower, very clean and great staff, right on the water,but......
Hotel is located right next to main road which can get a noisey.

Dear Chris,

Thank You so much for choosing our resort and for writing this comment about your stay.
We are glad to read You enjoyed the design of the resort, as well as the room, the breakfast service and the kindness of the staff.
As regards the position of the resort, this is located right between a rich garden and the beach. It never happened that our guests complained about noises coming from the street, which is on the opposite side of the resort. The sound of the waves of the sea, to which all the rooms overlook, it usually offers relief and peacefulness. Therefore, we are sorry if You heard some noise coming from the street: this is really the first time.

Anyway, thank You once again for your contribution.
Best Regards,
Customer Care Team

We arrived from Catania airport (about one hour drive), a bit exhausted by a long journey (two flights plus the drive) and were very nicely welcomed. We had carefully selected our room and were not disappointed: it was truly on the beach! Only two rooms offer this, the others (four?) being quite close.
This being a very small property, we depended very much on one lady who did her utmost for us to have everything we needed, from finding nice places to have dinner to ordering food for our lunches (there is no restaurant at the Calapetra).
All together we had a very relaxing mini-break and would love to go back soon...

Room tip: The two beachfront rooms are very nice. Prefer the one by the garden.

This hotel consists of six unique rooms managed by a small but amazingly helpful and friendly group of staff members. From breakfast to the beach service provided to accommodate the guests in the beach (which is currently public, but is currently being requested by the resort to privatise a section for the hotel only). The hotel is open from April to October each year, as Siracusa's weather does allow for a wide beach season boasting up to 25-30 degrees (Celsius) in the first weeks of October (as experienced by us). Taking into account the previous reviews regarding overcrowding in the beaches in June-August especially on weekends is a definite issue but as the garden is private and right by the sea (with direct access), it is understood that laying in the garden between bathing is the best approach. However, October has no such problems and the beach remains comfortably empty throughout the week and relatively little noise. The water is also crystal clear and has a very large bathing area, as it is a bay, within the bounds of sand bottom (as opposed to the algae bottom appearing around 60 metres into the sea, reaching depths of around 2.5-3 m). This bay also provides wind shelter and this is reflected in the waves, which are almost non existent.

Having booked two rooms together and an impromptu extension, I was offered a simple room switch which allowed me to experience three of the six rooms (room 2, 3 and 4). All these rooms were beautifully designed, albeit some privacy issues in Room 2 (Superior) as there is no door to separate the bathroom from the bedroom. This is unlikely to be a problem if only used between couples but family rooms become cumbersome. The couple rooms are the ones in fact with bathroom doors, whilst the family rooms do not have one. Nonetheless, if required, some curtains can be requested and added to the door to eliminate this problem.

The breakfast served, keeping in mind the size of the hotel, is very good, and served with attention to detail and comfort. It is served outdoors on the garden under a wooden and glass panel structure which sits beautifully overlooking the beach. Rooms with a garden view possess direct access to the breakfast area. Glass panels will be added to the structure in the future for days with excessive wind or rain (which, I stress, are very rare, although a possibility in October). A plan to split between sightseeing and bathing can help to optimise days with less sun or weather events if staying very late or very early in the season (and there are so many things to see nearby).

Access to lunch or dinner service, especially in October is certainly limited without a car, however, Cassibile, the nearest town, has everything you may need. A trip to Noto, Ortigia or Syracuse for dinner is also a great solution.

In conclusion, I would recommend visiting this place, or returning if you have been here in 2016 as there have been many changes, and it is well worth it. A big thank you to all staff members involved between 7-13th October 2017.

We ended up here by chance and were pleasantly surprised, lovely decor set in a quite corner of Fontane Bianche, the beach is a few steps away if you don't fancy chilling out in the garden Jacuzzi. The service was very good and efficient, lovely continental breakfast in the morning too. If you have small children beware of the steep steps leaving to the Jacuzzi though.
One peculiar thing that I would like to mention is the photos on the wall, huge nudes or seminudes, not to everyone's taste I suppose.
All in all very nice.
