We spent the first part of our honeymoon at this hotel and we loved it. Everyone was so warm. Free internet. DVD players in the room, and lots of outlets. Room upgrade because we were on our honeymoon. Amazing food and service. We could not have asked for more.
The room was enormous, with its own private terrace. It was a great room for having room service because there was so much space and the light and view was wonderful. The whole room was covered with tile, which gave a light summery feeling. There were hand painted accents everywhere, including custom sculpted flowers growing out of the bathroom tiles, it was so memorable and different. The bed was king size and comfortable. The tub could seat two, filled quickly, and had lots of bubble jets.
THE DINING ROOM
Pino, the dining room manager and everyone on staff greeted us with such kindness. Sometimes an extra item was thrown in. Once we got complimentary caprese salads, another time one of us ordered soup but they brought out enough for two. We loved the food so much we hardly left, or when we'd go out we'd come home for meals. Pino was concerned that we might be getting bored of the menu and he offered to make anything we wished for -- my husband doesn't eat fish which represents 85% of all Sicily menus. We ordered a simple pasta with olive oil and garlic -- Pino suggested a dish called Spaghetti L'Antiqua, which is now a staple in my repetoire at home (olive oil, garlic, flat leaf parsely, bread crumbs, red pepper flakes, and a couple crushed cherry tomatoes). Whether in the dining room or our living room, everything was delicious and perfectly prepared.
The dining room views and the view from our room were stunning by the way.
Make sure to get a drink at the bar. There is a charmingly lit seating area and with our simple drinks we were brought an array of lovely snacks that tided us over until dinner.
The service was just so good. On a day where we barely left the room, the housekeeping staff came and made up the room during the hour or so we were out for dinner. They anticipated what you needed and gave you more -- that is the true meaning of hospitality.
