My wife and I stayed in the hotel for a week, half board at the end of Sep. We had stayed in this hotel last year, June 2008 for 2 weeks and had a lovely time. We booked a balcony and Etna View. We arranged with the Hotel to have an Airport pick up for €85.
When we arrived, I mentioned that we were there before and the chap on the receptionist changed our room to one along the same row we had before.
Room was very nice, just as we remembered, with new large TV and remodelled bathroom. We had Sky TV, Sky News and Sky Sports. However after a thunderstorm a few days later Sky News and Fox News disappeared. When we asked about the news programmes we were told the repair man would check it out but it took several days to finally find out that they had cancelled the news subscription.
A lady receptionist was very unhelpful about the issue and made you feel that you were a nuisance and an annoyance.
Considering that it rained every day, we got a years rain in the week we were there, and we could not go out on some occassions for several hours, TV was more important
than normal. However after 3 or 4 attemps to solve the problem, a different maintenance man showed us how to change the languge on the Sky Box and we could watch TV in English.
The breakfast and dinners were very good and the staff at breakfast and dinner were always helpful and pleasant.
The location is perfect for the centre of town and the views are stunning. We would have no problem staying in this hotel provided we get a room similar to the one we got.
Some other guests said there rooms were dark, small and the bathroom was dirty. Can't believe it is the same hotel.
Hotel might consider improving their bar area, currenly only a couple of tables put together. Has potential to offer a great bar with a lovely out door area.
