First of all, I will add something on here which will hopefully help anyone going to this accommodation, something we didn't have - the location (Geocodes 37.966966, 13.861463). A sat nav will not find this address, and as people have alluded to this is not Collesano (we discovered this after 4 hours of driving around).
The best thing is to head for Campofelice di Roccella, and head out of this town on the SP129 through what looks like an industrial estate (keep with it) - you may be lucky and see the small hotel sign (good luck if it getting dark or dark).
Now I know many people will think I was crazy booking without directions, but we booked through a package on Thomsons so presumed that we would get directions on arrival - which we didn't and as we had a sat nav (European) thought we would be ok - we weren't. Other couples booking with Thomsons did receive direction but still got lost!)
Once you have got to this place once though, you should be fine.
Anyway, location is only one reason this accommodate is poor (in my opinion). If you get sold this place as a 4 star hotel - get ready for a big surprise - it is not. This property is at best a good bed & breakfast.
It offers no hotel services (e.g. proper bar, tourist information, hotel information, safety protocols etc). Also, unlike many people posted on here, our experience of the proprietor were, at best, awkward and infrequent. Furthermore, the family live on property - which is fine - but some of the communal areas interlink and conversations can be clearly heard.
Other people have written very objective reviews on this place, I wish I had read more thoroughly. I won't rewrite the pros and cons but the review by Misty369 is spot on.
Sicily is lovely and the place is not positioned badly, however you will need to travel a considerable amount to see many of the delights which Sicily has to offer. We travel via road trip frequently, but bouncing back and forth this property to things like Etna, Agrigento, Enna, Palermo - even Cefalu can be tiring.
Lots of work to do....
