I stayed here with my wife and 1 year old son in April 2011. I was greeted on arrival in Siracusa by Roberta who had sent an email a couple of days earlier with tips to make things very straight-forward. She could not have been more helpful or pleasant. I stayed for two weeks in Sicily in total and we stayed in 5/4* hotels in most places with a couple of 3* hotels in certain places. This place offered by far the most superior location / value for expenditure ratio. The apartment was perfect and was very spacious and totally spotless. (i was initially a little worried cause it was so cheap - no need). The only semi-negative was the steps up to the apartment with my pregnant wife and 1 year old but this was a very minor inconvenience and Roberta was kind enough to help us carry our stuff up. I really liked this stay.
