We were booked into the Hotel Antares for one night as part of a one-week auto-tour of Sicily, the hotel having been selected for us by our French tour operator, FRAM, through their Italian intermediary, Aeroviaggi. It was not a hotel that was easy to find as neither my sat nav nor Google maps recognised the address we were given. Furthermore, the Hotel Antares appears to have merged with the Hotel Olimpo just above it so we ended up taking the funicular 'lift' from the Antares reception area to check in at the Hotel Olimpo reception desk. We were allocated a spacious and well-appointed terraced room with spectacular views of the sea below. All in all our stay was comfortable and the breakfast was one of the best we had in any of the six hotels we stayed at in Sicliy. The reception staff were friendly, spoke good English and generally helpful. However, I was disappointed that they did not offer free wi-fi (as had been the case in every other hotel we stayed at during the week). In fact they were charging 6 euros an hour for internet access which I thought was extortionate! The hotel has good facilities (I even had a haircut there) and is well-situated for visits to the beautiful nearby hill village of Taormina.
