I had read some of the harsher reviews and wasn't expecting much, but we were here for a week. Our room was great with a beautiful view of Mt. Etna. EVERY staff member we met was exceptional, some were phenomenal (breakfast crew, bartender, front desk all were 5+ Star

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Mr. Lido and Cecilia. We met them yesterday to discuss about different options to have our wedding there and they were the most helpful and nicest people we've met so far on our trip. Anything we asked for, they'd say yes. Thank you

This Hotel is really a Palace.The moment we set foot in the hotel we found a porter pro-actively greeting us with a smile and giving us full attention at all times when needed.A reception gave us genuinely warm greetings and wasted no time completing check-in with minimal time.

Dear guest, Thank you for your preference. We are sorry that the Hotel has not met its expectations. However, we feel obliged to reply that our Hotel is constantly looked after because maintenance is one of our main priorities. Regarding the beach it is based outside the hotel, so it does not fall within our competence. We hope in the future you will come back in Catania and we will be happy to give you Hospitality. Best Regards Guest Relation

If this hotel didn't market itself as luxury / 5 star, I wouldn't be so aggrieved. But it does, so I am. For the price paid, you do not get luxury, or at least, the luxury I would expect compared to other 5 star hotels I have stayed at. This is an ok / nice hotel. In which case,

Dear Guest, Thank you for your preference. We are sorry to read that the hotel has not met its expectations. Unfortunately we are not responsible for the beach and bathing facilities because it is not our responsibility. The hotel is just a few kilometers from the city center and the international airport and is easily accessible. We will treasure his notes. Best Regards Guest Relation

I guess a taxi should be possible if booked in advance. Concierge should be able to help, but per my review, the staff was not well trained or helpful

The hotel posts the travel time, reserve at front desk. I am sorry I do not recall the exact time, but there is a morning shuttle and possibly up to three a day. There is also public bus service, at that time for one euro. It is either B or D that brings you the the bus terminal downtown. If you take the morning shuttle and do not want to wait for the hotels shuttle the bus is handy to meet your tour time needs.
