“Sicily is here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

Class Hotel ...... warm, professional, beauty room, perfect location to stay for work.
I never have been here for holiday (sigh!) but for business several times.

Here you can feel Sicily ...ask for a front see room.... you will see two way of live ... the morning fishers and the oil and gas refinery.

the only positive thing of this hotel is the position and the location.
the superior room is not so superior,too dark and the shower in the bathroom was really old with rust,the spa is too small,too dark and you can t see anything when you go inside the emotional shower.I asked several thing to the receptionists and it was like none listen to me,I asked 3 times for my bottle of prosecco and at least I got it at 11.pm after my fiancee went for the last time to the reception.the wi-fi connection and mobile phone doesn t work,but if you bring the computer near the reception maybe you can have some chance to got it.the breakfast is poor.only sweet sometimes burnt.

I've stayed twice in this hotel for one-night business trips only (both in spring, so not peak season), and found it pretty good. Rooms are modern, very comfortable, and spotlessly clean. Decor is rather over-the-top, but at least has some character - it could never be described as bland! Breakfast is a little limited by international standards, but typical Italian & the quality is good. I was very happy with the Wi-Fi on my visits - may have been lucky with the rooms I was in. Staff are friendly and speak some English (not much when I've been there, but enough to get by). There was only one bizarre incident of poor service on my last trip to spoil the record, when the girl on reception called me at 4.00am on the room phone to ask for my passport! She had not taken it the evening before when I offered it at check-in (I think she thought I was already registered on the system), but for some reason was determined she needed it right away. I protested that in the morning would be good enough, but she insisted she needed it right then, saying "police!", so I had to get up and get dressed to go and hand it over. No sign of police but she did phone someone. Her colleague on the desk the next morning was apologetic and as puzzled as I was about why it was needed at 4am and couldn't wait till breakfast time... Not a recommendation for good service, but hopefully a bizarre one-off. I'd certainly be happy to stay there again.

We spent a great long weekend at this wonderful place on the water at Milazzo. It was the best place we stayed at in Sicily over several trips over the last four years. The rooms were beautiful; extremely well maintained, fantastic furniture and furnishings, a short walk to everything of interest. Antonio behind the desk was very helpful. We highly recommend it as a weekend geataway or base for longer stays; really impressed. It is also small and cosy and well worth the four star rating and better than many five star places we have stayed at.
Hotel is proud of its Trip Advisor status and really deserves it.

Room Tip: The select category rooms are really top quality with small balcony directly facing the sea; worth t...

The rooms facing the Milazzo,s port are making the life smiling from very morning...as well as very confortable to ensure a very good rest - relaxation.
The available facilities (TV - Bathroom - Internet ,etc. ) make the guest as living in a small paradise plenty of confort,,,
All personnel : Reception - House keeping - Breakfast ,etc.. are first of all very efficient-reliable but mainly always smiling and offering all their courtesy to the guest in any occasion....
Then I highly reccomend to any type of travellers to discover - enjoy such a beautiful pearl...

Room Tip: The ratio quality/price is very interesting. The rooms on the first floor facing the port are very...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2011

We stayed here in Oct 2011.

Pros:
The hotel and room was nice.
The room itself was large and spacious.
The breakfast was good.

Cons:
The WIFI kept breaking - every 5 or 10 minutes it would disconnect and you had to reconnect - it got very frustrating after an hour or so.
The service is brutal - if you asked for anything the 3 people in reception had to basically have a conference between them and eventaully answer your request. I asked for an iron one evening and they had none - in the whole hotel. They offered me one the next morning which was a little late considering it was a dress I wanted to iron for wearing the night before. We also asked if they could arrange back massages for us the next day - we were told to come and ask the next morning - the next morning they rang but there was no availability - I cant help feeling if they had of rang the first day we may have got availability. They offered us use of their spa. It was 15 euro (which they dont tell you on the website) and they said to come back in 20 minutes so they had time to get it ready. When I came back they said wait another 20 minutes or so. So eventually about an hour later it was available for use. It was nice i must admit but I dont understand how they cant know how long it takes for the steam room etc to get to temperature.

It was little things like this that bugged us during the stay. The hotel overall is very nice but the service really could do with sharpening up a little.

Also note that the Roof-top jacuzzi is not in operation at thisti me of year (despite it being 28C outside on the days we stayed).
