“Last stop on tour.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

After reading some other views, I wondered if I was in the same hotel, yes it is big, yes has children running around and in pool, but what do you expect at a holiday resort, I found the staff very friendly and helpfully(I still needed medical attention which they provided) spent our last two nights here and found food enjoyable (had beautifully cooked roast beef one night) and a big selection at breakfast including bacon and scrambled eggs( not rubbery). But must confess it was a bit big for my personal liking,prefer small hotels. Four of us took the tour to Mt Etna that was good, but would suggest if you go there,Do Not wear white shoes,or open sandals. In all enjoyed this Mini Tour highlights I would say Marsala with its wine tasting only thing I was able to do, would have loved to have gone to the Roman Villa remains and the Greek Temples but unfortunately out of question, maybe next time. By the way rooms were very well maintained, and ours no sound of disco or piano bar music.

This hotel is not a place to stay. Loud, not near a town, revolting food. You have to travel in a shuttle bus to get into town. Had to phone up reception to ask them to get the disco turned down so that we could get some sleep. music starts early in the day around the pool. Food ( only buffet style) is served in a room that looks more like a works canteen. We had to stay (yes, had to as we were on an excursion) three nights but gave up eating in the hotel after the 1st day. Travelsphere should never have booked us into such a dump. I will be taking it up with them.

I really would not advise people to stay in this hotel.
We were recommended this hotel by Thompson as a quiet relaxed 4* and somewhere me and my partner could relax as I was 6months pregnant at the time,and it was far from relaxing!
On arrival we were not given any information and not shown where anything was. We asked reception for directions to a bar with a tv as there was a tennis match on and we were waved in the vague direction of the town. With then walked over half an hour and didn't even find a shop!
Hotel is full of children and although there is a separate children pool they do not use it and most days we could not get a sun bed by the pool and if we did we were unable to get into the pool due to the amount of children on the steps to get into the pool.
Music was blasted by the pool from 10am-6.30pm with the entertainment staff dancing round the edge.
Food was awful. Breakfast-milk was hot from being left in sun. Lunch and dinner not much choice especially not for people who don't eat fish,only meat you will find is pork and we stopped eating that after a few weeks after it was served very under cooked. I don't know how we didn't get I'll from the food.
The 'snacks' they provide in between meals are left over croissants from breakfast.drinks very basic.
If you are a couple you get out on a table so close to the next table you might as well be eating on a table of 4 with 2 strangers!
Hotel is very out the way, takes 20 minutes to get to a shop or bar(once you are told where to go!)
Shuttle bus to beach doesn't run very regularly and you have to book on it. Once you arrive at beach they don't show you what section is the part for the hotel.
Hotel entertainment is a man with a keyboard playing the same set every night.
This hotel is definitely not 4 star more like 2 star and very expensive for what it is, would not recommend it!

We stayed for 14 nights in May 2013. During the fortnight we were looked after by all the staff both in the restaurant and bar extremely well. The food was very good value for money. The hotel room was very comfortable, excellent maid service, the whole hotel was clean, bright and the staff very welcoming at all times. The outside areas were well kept with some beautiful flowers. All in all we would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and would hope to return in the future.

We have just returned from 2 weeks in this hotel, and have really enjoyed our stay. All of the staff are fantastic, and our children particularly loved Franco and Antonio in the dining room and Catarina at the bar. Their highlight was the kid's pool, and their special cocktails! The reception staff were helpful and managed to answer all of our questions. It was quite noisy on our last weekend in the evenings with birthday parties and weddings but this is our only issue, and would have been fine if we hadn't needed to get up to catch the plane back. Although not on the beach front, there are easy walks to giardini, and a shuttle bus, although this doesn't run very often. A super relaxing retreat with good food and great pools.

I recently stayed for seven nights at this hotel. First impressions were wow when I walked in to the large reception area.

Warmly greeted and wow number 2 when I seen my room and view. The room was very clean and comfortable. Large bathroom and very nice fittings thought out the room. It all looked very new. I had a room on the 4th floor (top floor which I requested) and had a view of the sea, hotel grounds and I could just see Mount Etna from my balcony.

Wow number 3 was the size of the pool (There are two pools, one is for the children which is the opposite end and around the back of the hotel so completely away from the main one) the out door bar area is also here and very pleasant to sit here on an afternoon or evening. Even all the chairs, tables and sun beds were clean and looked new

The hotel has lovely flowers all over the place and is very well maintained by the gardener.

The restaurant is in an ‘L’ shape and is either in a large dining area or a more relaxed narrow part by all the food. Talking of food there was quite a choice, plenty of meat/fish/ pasta along with vegetables and a good choice of desserts, all self service. Breakfast was also nice (small thing but sometimes the vegetables were not hot enough on a night).

In the bar area music was preformed each night by the piano man, where you could sit and relax.

There is a local bus which stops outside the hotel which will take you to Taormina (Hill top village) about 25mins away and is a must to visit. The hotel sells the bus tickets.

Although there isn’t really anywhere to walk on an evening (Giardini Naxos centre is about 15min walk away) the hotel itself more than makes up for this. I do recommend this hotel

Room Tip: If you go on to the roof of the hotel you will have a great view of Taormina in the distant along wi...

This was our last stop as part of the Travelsphere Top to Toe tour and we spent 3 nights at this lovely hotel. It is modern and largely caters for German customers, which was a slight set back, as the lounge was taken over one evening because two German teams were playing a major game. Our room was on the first floor with a lovely balcony overlooking the back of the hotel. It was very busy when we were there, having a wedding and various conferences. However, as we were part of a large group it was fine. There is music in the lounge every evening which was much appreciated. The food was not as varied as I thought it would be, but more than adequate, and was "help yourself buffet" for all meals. The swimming pool is an oasis as there is a lot of greenery around. There is also a children's pool round the back.
