Excellent hotel with impeccable staff, extensive grounds and delicious food. Makes a good base to drive to Noto, Etna, Taormina and of course Syracuse and Catania.
The hotel is in isolated grounds well away from busy tourist locations. it makes a calm and peaceful haven after travelling in the earlier part of the day, and is well equipped with large pool, gym, and snacks/meals by the pool, and dinner in the restaurant. Roads from the motorway and Syracuse to the hotel are "interesting", so we decided to take half-board rather than tackle driving them at night.
The restaurant serves an Italian menu with special items every day, You can take fewer courses but the food is excellent so you will be tempted! The evening restaurant is fairly formal with table cloths, and smart waiters, though not stuffy. Most people chose to be smart. We were in the early season so ate indoors, but there is a terrace for hotter times.
Breakfast is extensive and covers most tastes and styles.
Rooms are very comfortable but there is not much storage space if you are staying longer than a couple of days. Good hot shower.
