We are a family of 5 (3 kids, from 1- 13) and visited Catania during Spring - April - to avoid high heat and big crowds. The hotel looked as if it was right on the beach and family friendly (our bad for not looking further into it) but while it was across the street from the water there is actually only rock before the ocean and no actual beach.
The pool heating was not on and there was no space for small children to swim safely. There were no open green areas for kids to stretch and play and a street where cars/bikes drove fast right in front of the hotel.
The rooms were decent and the service was good, breakfast was great and the lounge was quite nice. A great place for business travelers and perhaps adults with teens or traveling alone but not an ideal place for families with young kids. We moved after 1 night.
