We stayed here for three nights and agree with the other reviewers that the service is the best. We had a junior suite (these are the only rooms with a private balcony). Great to sit and relax and look at the ocean..Extra blanket, pillows, hangers, broken tv, car retrieval, and every other request tended to immediately and with a smile. They offered suggestions for day trips, pizzerias, shopping, etc. The hotel itself is clean, a bit eclectic and about a 10 minute walk to the town. Nice pool and garden.
Breakfast buffet is to die for with a wide range of cold cuts, cheeses, fruits, warm dishes of eggs, bacon, egg plant, quiches, and a table full of mouth watering desserts. Cappucino, teas and juices included, of course! We ate only breakfast and then dinner every day. You eat in the top terrace level with beautiful ocean views.
If you do a day trip to Etna, it is very cold so bring warm clothes! They do sell sweatshirts at the Mt. Not too expensive. On the way back, if you have time, take the curvy backroads to get home. Consider stopping at the Sine Tempore in Castiliogne ( see my other review) on the way back for dinner. Buon Viagge!
