Hotel Principe di Fitalia Wellness & SPA
Ranked #6 of 75 Hotels in Syracuse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 July 2013

The place is a quiet summer paradise only 8 minutes away from the centre of Siracusa and Ortiga.

The service is excellent and the staff is very friendly and keen to help. The pool is always very clean and the pool area and other common areas are very clean. The gardens and lawns are well kept and typically Mediterranean.

We recently stayed at the hotel and found the service from the staff to be first class. Everyone was exceptionally helpful, the quality of the room was excellent and the food was of a really good quality. Having stayed in many hotels, what really stood out was the great service of all of the staff and their efforts to ensure that all of our family were taken care of. I would recommend Hotel Principe di Fitalia to anyone, whether it be couples or families as it is a perfect location to enjoy a lovely part of Sicily.

This is a wonderful hotel. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful and the accommodation excellent - extremely clean, air-conditioned and spacious rooms and excellent facilities (including a beautiful pool and free Wi-fi). Breakfast consisted of a very generous buffet made up of everything you could think of. We only ate dinner there one evening but the food was also very good. Best of all was the (free) shuttle service between the hotel and Ortigia and a private beach (a lido that hotel guests can use for free). The surrounding area is stunningly beautiful and Ortigia is a very 'manageable' city - very attractive and historic with enough things to visit to make it interesting without being too overwhelming for a relaxing holiday (and there are plenty of good restaurants). The hotel is a little way out of Siracusa (about a 15 minute drive ) but the shuttle service (once we were there) meant that this wasn't a problem. If, however, you plan to visit the area extensively, it might be worth hiring a car (free parking at the hotel) as although buses are very good, you need to get into Siracusa first. All in all, I can't recommend this hotel enough.

Syracuse is a lovely area, with so much to see, and my wife and I enjoyed spending a week at this hotel immensely. We had a wonderful welcome, were served some spectacularly delicious food with great service, and enjoyed our nice clean room. The facilities included everything we could ask for, with a nice pool and gym, and the staff were very attentive to our needs.

This is a great place to spend a week, and if, like us, you enjoy small and friendly hotels, then this is the place for you.

We were so looking forward to relaxing here after a hectic 18 day driving trip of southern Italy & Sicily... But sadly this was not the 'hidden gem' we hoped this would be!
The roads around the hotel were littered with rubbish and garbage bags!
We had to wait for some time for someone to come to reception, only to be told that they could no longer accommodate us on our last night, so had booked us in to a near by hotel (we were offered a complimentary dinner)... we were advised of the hotels facilities but we were not shown round the hotel and had to carry our own bags to the room.. The room was clean but smelt musty, and the bathroom tiles were mouldy... Breakfast was chaotic, we had to set our own table, with a little help from other guests who told us where the plastic glasses were! The only coffee machine was totally inadequate, there was always a queue, and it frequently ran out!
I cannot believe that some of the reviews we had read were about the same hotel..! We were so disappointed. We have stayed in Italy on numerous occasions, some 3 stars some 5plus (and six hotels on this trip alone) but this is no 4 star hotel...
The only positive was that all the staff were friendly and informative, especially Lavinia.
Sorry to say though, that we won't be recommending this hotel.

Me and my wife stayed five nights in july at this hotel. We rented a car at the airport in catania and took the 1 hour or so drive down to the hotel.

We were uppgraded from our superior room to the suite, which was a really nice gesture. The room itself was nice but perhaps a bit run down. Also, I did not find a single English-speaking channel on the tv.

The breakfast was excellent and served in the shade by the pool. The dinner served in the evening was superb! Really good sicilian and italian food coming from an obviously very talented chef.

Although it hurts to say so, we were a bit annoyed by the number of families with children staying at the hotel. The breakfasts and dinners were more often than not filled with screaming children and parents running around trying to calm them down. I don't know if it had something to do with the time of the year but I would therefore advise people looking for peace and quiet to think twice before booking.

The hotel provide access to a private beach area, which was really nice. There is a also a modern gym with a wonderful location, overlooking the surrounding fields.

What really stands out from our stay is the friendlyness of the staff. We were greated with smiles and really taken care of in the best possible way.
