I spent ten days at this resort this past Easter with my girlfriend and it was incredible. We typically stay in Catania but we decided this year to get out into the country side and I could not have been more pleased with the choice of Torre Archirafi. The resort itself is set on the grounds of an old orchard which still produces lemons and olives sold locally. Our flat was an excellent "base camp" for excursions into the surrounding towns of Toarmina, Castelmola, Forza' de Agro (featured in The Godfather II) and of course the all important trip up to Mt. Etna, which I could also see every morning from the patio outside the door!!! And when we did want to explore Catania for the day, it is barely 45 min. south on the autostrada. If we wanted to stay in for the evening, our flat had it's own kitchen with everything we needed to make ourselves a nice sit down dinner. Besides that, the shower was always hot, the room was always clean, and if we ever needed anything, Francesco was always there at the front desk eager to assist. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone who wants to spend some time exploring Sicily's east coast
