“Idyllic location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

A jewel of a hotel.Small, friendly, family run and the owners put themselves out to be helpful despite having good but not excellent English.
Breakfast on the terrace, in the sunshine, toes almost in the sea, was the perfect morning location. The buffet was absolutely delicious focusing on fresh local fruit, cheese and pastries.
The beach facilities were superb and unusual as far as we could see in Syracuse/Ortigia.
The 20 min walk onto Ortigia island meant that we felt distanced from any hustle and bustle of the town although all was readily reachable with the stroll passing the best Gelateria ever !!!
Because of late booking we ended up in a suite.Tasteful maritime decor predominantly white and lace with seaside ornaments and a breathtaking view out over the sea from the window meant we had no regrets. So much to do and see in Ortigis with few tourists and superb seafood.Visit the market if you get a chance.

Lovely hotel, overlooking the sea and the Ortigia island. The view from our balcony was amazing. Wonderful location, just outside Ortogia. The family running the hotels went out of their way to make our stay memorable.the rooms are very clean &spacious. Great breakfast served on the terrace. Free parking. Just great!

Room Tip: Excellent location!

Adore adore adore (yes thrice!!) this gem of a hole with only 12 rooms and a sparkling clean private beach that is 10 mins walk to stunning ortigia. There is a Ralph Lauren meets baroque italy look and feel - chic white and coral decor. Pay extra for a view.. Nothing like waking up to the sound of waves. Downside - the young staff are still learning on the job (forget orders sometimes and struggle with basic English) - there is not enough storage in the rooms.. And the bathroom (shower) is tiny. But small gripes as this is like the private home of your grown up glamorous cousin.. (The owner is a very glam sicilian lady whose family owned the property from when it was a sardine factory)

This hotel seems to still be a bit of a secret, and I'd quite like it to stay that way! We loved everything about our stay here. As other reviewers have said, it is a little oasis with an easy walk to the sights of Ortigia. Enjoy the lovely quiet beach during the day, wander into Ortigia for an inexpensive dinner then stroll back and enjoy a glass of wine on the comfortable outdoor sofas while appreciating the amazing view. Or eat at the hotel's own restaurant with the best view in Syracusa. The owners attend to every little detail and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We didn't have a car on this trip but will do next time as parking is free, driving in Syracusa appeared stress free and this is a great base to explore the region. Oh, and a super friendly golden retriever to welcome you back!

Room Tip: A standing balcony allows you to make the most of the view and take advantage of the cooling sea bre...

Where to start, everything about this hotel is wonderful, the location with its private beach, the restaurant in the most perfect location right on the water's edge, the food, the friendly staff, the beautiful decor, the owners who are on hand if you need anything, and the rooms which are beautifully furnished and spotless. We opted for a suite and it had 2 larges terraces with views of Ortigia and is definitely worth the extra cost. Ortigia is about 15 minutes walk, perfect for walking up an appetite before dinner, and there are lots of taxis for the return if you do not feel like walking. We are already planning our next trip!

Excellently located for attractions of Ortigia, while providing a tranquil haven to escape from the crowds. Beautiful property and rooms with every detail taken care of. The breakfast deserves a special mention, arguably one of the best we've ever enjoyed - the quality and variety every day was very impressive.

Room Tip: Any room is good, don't worry about reviews of the road, its not that bad!

We stayed recently for 10 days and found this hotel a little haven away from the bustle of Ortigia. Friendly and helpful staff and lovely individual rooms. Lovely and quiet, a gem hidden away. Local area is a bit sadly neglected, but the marina and yachts next door make an interesting spectacle.
Don't expect a lively nightlife, for that to into Ortigia, which is an easy 10 minute stroll.
