We stayed at the Villa San Mauro mid August for four nights. I noted that the write up on the hotel website said that this was the hotel to stay in in Caltagirone, can I stress that in our experience this really meant it was the 'only' hotel to stay in as there didn't seem to be anything else around other than B&B's.
Needless to say our experience of the hotel was only good, we had an excellent room (superior) with views up to the village on the hill. There didn't seem to be much staff about, but they were very helpful and would serve you any drinks you wanted (22 euro for two fruit juices - very expensive) on request. There was a very good restaurant down the road (right as you leave the car park, you can walk, it takes about 5 mins), in opposition to the drinks bill in the hotel, you can get a two course meal and wine for about 35 euros, excellent value.
With regards to the town itself, there wasn't much to see really and we were a little disappointed, although the tiled steps are worth a look at. You can't walk to the town, so you really do need a car. With regards to the hotel and facilities, the pool was great and the most people we ever saw around it was about four, so you really do get it to yourself. The breakfast was good and plenty to choose from.
