We arrived here and stayed three nights for part of our exploration of Sicily! We arrived via train, and our previous hotel had already phoned ahead so Borgo had a taxi waiting for us holding a sheet with our name on it. The hotel is a bit out of the way in that you do need a ride in and out of the city, so for us it was 20 euro each way, or Borgo also has a shuttle that runs at specific times that costs 5 euro a person, each way.
Other the slight inconvenience of travel, the resort itself is lovely with modern, clean, spacious rooms and large beds, and we loved that there were even bathrobes for us to wear. We were also impressed with the breakfast buffet, which was the largest we'd seen the whole trip, with an assortment of drinks, eggs and bacon, meats, bread, and homemade pastries, and fresh fruit even! We loved it.
The pool is very large and was especially uncrowded since we went in late October, but was very clean, and there is plenty of lawn furniture to lounge on during nicer days.There's also a small game room near the lobby which has a foosball table, ping pong table, Wii console, and some games. As my husband and I are very much children at heart, we spent a lot of time in this room as well waiting for dinner.
The concierge was more than helpful the entire time, and offered many suggestions when we asked our questions in good English. The onsite restaurant is definitely a good option with a large variety considering the cost to go into the city instead.
