“second visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

just returned from our second visit to the atheene palace and just like our previous visit everything was excellent from the moment we arrived till the time we left, the hotel was as before a beautiful, well run establishment with good food and drink and comfortable rooms and public areas. i think that no small part of its success, is its wonderful staff who were ALL helpful and friendly particularly VINCENZO on reception and SALVATORE at the bar, also to JEFF our first choice representative for his unobtrusive yet effective assistance. needless to say we will be back next year.

Room Tip: sea views are well worth the extra cost

We have just come back from a week holidays in Hotel Fiesta Athenee Palace. We have been there from 19 to 26 May. The experience has been excellent and we are already looking to be back next year.

The hotel is around 50 km from Palermo and easy to reach by highway. We have rented a car at the airport and we have easily parked outside the hotel for free.

Reception
The check-in and welcome was done by Irene. She was extremely helpful and professional. The check-in was fast and she has provided a lot of useful information about the hotel, places to visit etc.

The whole reception team, Gianna, Alessandro, Giuseppe and Vincenzo were really helpful each time we approached them to ask for information.

Our last night, we have asked Gianna for a detail list of charges made to our room. She was really helpful; she has provided this to us and was correct. The check-out next day was done smoothly.

Housekeeping.
We only meet our cleaning lady twice. The room was always tidy and clean after she did it. We were staying in 1307. She was also smiling and greeting us each time that we meet her.

Restaurant
We have been in full board. We usually came quite late for breakfast but we always have something nice to eat. You can enjoy your coffee and something to eat at the sunny terrace outside the restaurant.

We only had lunch at the hotel few days as we were visiting the island with the rental car. There was also possible to request a pack lunch at reception before 20pm daily. The reception staff was always helpful and informed us about this possibility.

Dinners were always nice at the hotel. They have a large variety of dishes, starting with salads; at least 6-8 different ones per day. Daily, they had 3 different pasta dishes. The pasta is hand made by the cook Francesco, please try it they are wonderful!. There is also fish & meat dishes, plus vegetarian options for everyone. Also you must try the Sicilian and other Italian specialities, such as arancini, vitello tonato etc.

The restaurant maitres Rosario and Giuseppe were professional and helpful. When we come into the restaurant, they always welcome us with a smile, find a table for us and ask how our day was. They paid attention to each and every guest at the hotel.

The restaurant waiters were excellent. They also took good care of us; they even remember what we used to drink. The drinks were always at the table when we came with our dinner. We need to say ¨complimenti a tutti¨, grazie Raimondo, Giuseppe, Roberto, Mauro, Antonio and the others.

Entertainment
The entertainment team tries its best but the shows/ entertainment are not special compared to our hotel chains.

Shop
We recommend you to visit the hotel shop. Davide is really helpful and the man that you need when you realize that your hair-dyer cannot be plugged into the room without an adapter as it was my case!! We will recommend you to bring your own or visit Davide that will provide you one for 4 euro.

In the shop you could also find a large variety of souvenirs and products. Please do not leave without trying the pistachio crème.

Wifi
If we think about something to improve or a recommendation for the management, we could say than nowadays the wifi should be a complimentary service for guests and not a paying service.


Overall, the experience has been extremely good. You can find another 4 starts in the area with similar facilities. The reason to make you come back and recommend this hotel to your family and friends is the warm welcome and professionalism from its staff. Nowadays is what it makes the difference in hotel business.

Congratulations to the hotel management for its outstanding team and for the wonderful experience that we had at Hotel Fiesta Athenee Palace.

Arguably the best hotel in Campofelice di Roccela area. Delivers whatever a 4 star establishment should provide. Nice, clean rooms, great food and relaxed atmosphere. Staff a definite asset. Vincenzo at the front desk (speaks several languages) will organize whatever you need to make your visit to Sicily a happy and memorable one. Offers advice, books trips, restaurants, rent a car or a scooter. Word "impossibile" not in his dictionary!

Room Tip: Try to book a seaview room. A bit dearer but worth it

Our experience at the Fiesta Hotel Athenee Palace was awful. From the moment we arrived we were unimpressed. The hotel grounds were unkempt (dirty fountains, dead flowers, weeds, construction, bulldozers on the beach, etc.) We were told this is because April is during their off season. There was a large business conference for the first few days of our stay (that we were not a part of) and we were constantly pushed aside because they were "too busy" catering to the larger party. The front desk staff were rude and not helpful. The laundry service ruined a pair of my dress slacks and their idea of compensation was 10 eruo. I can say that the food was good.There was always a large variety and they would provide boxed lunches if you were going to be out touring all day. Also, they offer free dance lessons nightly that are an absolute riot. The dance lessons were probably the most fun we had at this hotel. Overall, my friends and I went to Sicily hoping for the vacation of a lifetime and the trouble we had with the hotel ruined our time there.

Having booked the fiesta garden hotel we were very pleased at being upgraded to the fiesta athena hotel and also not the promo room but a superior bungalow, close to the beach. The welcome was very friendly as we found with all Sicilians. The food and facilities were great, we had the pools to ourselves most days spent at the hotel inbetween sight seeing.Unlike some places where staff operate on continental time (10 mins means 1 hour) the staff dealt with things promptly The evening meals were interesting with coaches bringing in hoards of mainly germans for the night stop over but this added to the atmosphere, and we met some nice people although many of them looked miserable most of the time. We went in mid April and the weather was hot enough to lay by the pool but not too hot to go sight seeing. The landscape is amazing and so lush and etna is a must but you must take warm clothes as it freezing (we hired warm jackets and boots on the mountain - if you dont take then with you) Cefalu is a lovely cove although at this time of year the sea is brrrrrrr. I would recommend it totally as a great holiday destination

Room Tip: I asked if we could have a lovely rrom please and we got upgraded

This Hotel and resort located on the beach is very clean and comfortable. The service in the dinning room was good in spite of the big nomber of German tourists in the Hotel. The food was excelent, large variety of delicious dishes ( buffet ) at breakfast and dinner. Quite music in the lobby after dinner. They offer trips arround , by bus, at main attractions of Sicily. A perfect vacation Hotel for families, or couples.

Room Tip: Any room is good. Second floor room with sea view balcony may be better.
