“A four-star hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

A good four-star hotel, neither more or less. A very nice poolarea with access to the sea via stairs. Clean and good rooms, nothing to complain about. Hoverver, I miss the "litlle extra". I found my forgotten waterbottle at teh pool (football type) in a wastebin they day after instead of taken care of. Rather much to choose from at breakfast but more sweet than expected. Sometimes a little vauge answers from the front desk to my questions - always ask twice! Very much traffic - fast and noisy - outside the hotel but that´s not the hotels fault of course.

The hotel is nice, and even the pool area and rooms but the food is very over priced. For example a basic toast cost €5 and a simple lunch buffet costs €30 per person and cocktails (small glasses) are around €12.
I must say that for the price we paid to stay there, the service was not as expected. Even the area it is quite and to enjoy yourself you need to go out of Aci Castello and at least go to Aci Trezza which is at least 2km away.

as one of the most luxurious hotels in catania, the »grand hotel baia verde« really earns its title as a »grand hotel«. very friendly and service oriented concierges and a very exclusive athmosphere helped us to relax and recharge. the access to the open sea through a cliff is breathtaking and the service personel is everywhere. the dining restaurant is a little bit expensive, but the food is worth the money. we stayed ten days and had a great and relaxing time.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Last night in Sicily, we decided to head for Aci Castello for our last night. We do not normally like big sprawling hotels so were a little undecided about the Grand Hotel Baia Verde.

However, it was great! It is sat on the rocky edges directly next to the sea. There are a number of different levels where you can climb down and swim off the rocks. The room had views directly looking out to sea which was 20 metres if that away.

Dinner was an experience… we quickly realised that you do not need to order from the menu and can ask the chef to prepare anything you like (Sicilian). I ordered Spaghetti with sea urchins - it was wonderful. The chef appeared and cooked it (with flambéing cognac) right in front of me!

Breakfast was fine but the best bit was sitting looking out at the wide expanse of sea before our journey back to the airport.

Room Tip: Pick a sea view room.

This hotel is perfect if you want to relax and enjoy the sea. The access to the sea is really well done with terraces carved into volcanic rock (no sand). The pool (25m) is big enough to swim. The peolpe are friendly and polite. The breakfast is served in a room on the top floor with a wonderful view on the sea. Superior room with sea view are quite big and clean. An electric kettle would be a plus in order to make coffe or tea.

We stayed in 5 for a week and thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the see. The staff at breakfast was super friendly and the rooms were extra clean. The location is perfect to see Catania and the rest if the coast, close to mt. Etna, Taormina and Siracusa. A nice gym and a spa complete the great package

I stayed at Baia Verde many times in the past on business trip.

This time instead I was on vacation with family and I really appreciated a lot.
Family room was very wide.
Pool on the rocky shore is really nice and you can have also a swim in the sea itself.
Breakfast is outstanding on the sweets, average on fruit.
Price is adequate to the high quality.
