Stayed at this hotel on one night with family members. Lovely grounds and swimming pool; very laid back and relaxing atmosphere and environment. Given a lovely clean room with shower only.
Breakfast was very basic and unimpressive with indifferent service and the worst during our travels in Sicily; home made bread was tasteless. Had dinner on recommendation and the food and service was good except for the orange and onion salad which was a disgrace in presentation, quality and cost.
Free wifi only available in reception area but for most of the time it was not working unless you used their charged facility. I asked the receptionist to reboot the system but just shrugged his shoulders. Next morning, my nephew did it for him and was OK.
This hotel has the potential to be really good. Apparently, wifi will be available in all of the rooms by May and if breakfast was improved significantly, with signage on where to park cars and directions to the entrance of the hotel, this would improve it to a good 4* hotel
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Masseria degli Ulivi is nestled in the Iblea countryside where olive trees, carob trees and Mediterranean scents abound. The Masseria is part of the old farm holding, full of character and atmosphere: The Reception area - Restaurant - Bar - Sitting area with reading and conversation rooms. Wherever you turn you will find quiet corners and delightful sights like the small rock and herb garden or the courtyard with table service amongst the jasmine and climbing roses. The rooms are positioned individually on the land, guaranteeing peace and privacy and together with the main building of the Masseria, evoke in the visitor the sensation of being in a small rural village. Most rooms are double and can be Standard or Superior according to size, comfort and outside space for private use. There are also triple and family rooms on two floors. In our comfortable candlelit dining-room, under a traditional roof made of plaster and cane, our guests can enjoy a discreet and friendly service, always attentive to individual requirements and special requests. In summer you can have breakfast outside on the terrace surrounded by the scents and colours of the countryside and in the evening you can dine in the cool of the olive trees immersed in the profound peace of the Iblea nights. Guests can relax and enjoy the large swimming pool and sports area surrounded by olive and carob trees with a sundeck and sun beds as well as a sports area with a tennis court and boules alley. ... more less
