There are a few good words about the hotel in the end.

But first things first (in case you get bored reading the rest): the food is bloody awful here. Coffee at breakfast is very bitter, the inly way you can drink it is by mixing it with lots of milk. The orange juice (or at least the sign claimed it was) is made of the cheapest powder they could get and also tastes awful. Water-melon - tasteless, though fruits at Sicily are generally very good and even I was able to find a very sugary one at a local market. Things that are edible: cereal, yoghurt, canned fruit (you simply can't spoil canned peaches and pineapples), toasts with jam and butter. Don't bother with anything else!

And certainly don't bother with full-board or half-board. It costs a fortune (half-board is 35EUR ) and it tastes, how do I put this.... Highly unsatisfactory is a mild way to put this. We'd be much better off going to Taormina every day, so we did. It cost us much less and the food was just great!

Against any logic we've chosen this hotel by a picture that we stumbled upon in Google Image Search (look at the view!). We did check the reviews, but were not convinced that the experience would not match the price.

Double-storey room is a dream.. that did not come true. To some degree this is our fault - we were desperate for some reason to try staying in such a room. To be honest, beautiful photographs at the hotels' website make you think the room is enormous, but in fact it is far from it.

Double-storey room is no designed for couples, at least not without children. You are probably expected to sleep at the second floor, while the folding bed on the first floor is for you children. Both are comfy, and if there's only two of you, you better use the latter. The problem is that the air conditioner is installed in such a way, that it will inevitable blow you off the bed at the second floor even at the lowest setting.

Both beds were very comfy!

In the end of June - beginning of July the hotel is empty, there is literally just the two of you near the pool. Not during the weekend though. The hotel was packed full on Friday through Sunday, and the staff was not prepared for that. The second pool was only open on Sunday, so the first one was overcrowded two days in a row. People actually queued 30 minutes before pool opening in order to get a space near the pool. We had a big argument about that at the reception but all they could say is that they don't have another lifeguard to open the other pool.

On the very same day the pool was overcrowded the maid took our beach/pool towels (we were drying in the sun in our room) and the lifeguard tried to refuse to give us two more at the pool after lunch, as he claimed they didn't have enough for everyone. Like they didn't know they had a lot of people coming for the weekend!

Two loud weddings took place, properly loud. But to be honest we were too tired by the evening in order for that to make any significant effect on our good night sleep.

Spa is very stylish, but the doors in two of the steam rooms don't shut properly, so the temperature is no up to the standard. It's only 25 EUR per person per day. Good deal and there's a dedicated pool area too.

This hotel has great facilities but is very boring and lacks the level of service that you expect for such a price.

I have to say, some of the staff is very friendly and understanding and generally do their job well. For my partner's birthday they successfully ironed her dress and arranged a secret flower delivery to our room. I thank a long-haired ginger lady at the reception! (But beware of the short-haired ginger lady - she's not a friendly receptionist at all!)

We spent a week in this hotel (1-8 June). Nice hotel with good panoramic views on the St.Alessio
Castle(but it is closed for visiting) and sea. Unfortnately at this time seaplatform and access to sea from the hotel were clossed. As well - only one swiming pool and one restaurant was opened. Locals informed us that it is still - no season, despite that the hotel was full of tourist. So we went most of the time to eat in St.Margarita family owned hotel on the opposite side of the street. That was nice home made food at the reasonable price. The access to the sea was another issue - we had to use the nearby hotel Baia Taormina acess to the wild beach or go to the nearest beach - Letojani. For our trip to Taormina we used a hotel free shuttle.

My fiance and I had the most enjoyable and relaxing weekend break at the Hotel Capo Dei Greci.....we found the hotel comfortable, clean and the staff attentive to our needs. We will return to this hotel and recommend it to friends and family :)
