Booked the hotel for two nights as part of our honeymoon and on recommendation from family. True, we had a hard time finding the place with crappy garmin GPS and just the booking address (print google map beforehand...) but once there, exactly as we were told and more. The feel and look is quite distinct, very modern, not for everyone but we loved the room, from the bathroom faucet with funky taps to the chandelier in the WC...plain awesome. Grounds: pretty, well kept, although yes, close to main road. Room for further amenities which is why Ill check this hotel again in the future. Pool, simple, does the job, had great afternoons lounging there. Staff: plain great, very caring and there for whatever you need (THANK YOU for the great recommendations fir eating in Syracuse, best dinners ever)...if you see them ...although keep in mind its a 10 bedroom hotel, which leads to probably my only complaint: during the afternoon, there is one staff on the grounds, thats it. You have to chase him/her if you want something to drink by the pool. No snacking option during the day, what a pity. The restaurant: great breakfast, nothing to complain, lots of options, diner, just plain one of the best restaurant in sicily we've eaten at, fair prices, great selection of wine, very simple yet perfectly executed dishes, the outside diner option is a must. all in all, if you take it with a grain of salt (small boutique hotel, not the amenities of its larger counterparts, not the best views in town), it is worth the trip and the stay for its uniqueness and staff. Highly recommended.
