We arrived at the hotel from Aci Trezza near Catania where we had stayed at the very excellent Lachea Hotel. We had trouble finding the Hotel Villa Romano as the directions don't mention where to exit the main road or that the road leading down to the hotel, Via Mediterranee is one way and that you must go to the end of the road, double back on the parallel road then take the first right on to the sea front to find the hotel.
We arrived quite late and didn't want to go out for dinner so we had dinner in the hotel. Expensive: Euro 58 for the two of us. My first course was mussels and was excellent but the second course, breaded pork was inedible because it was too tough. My wife thought that her meal was good. Drinks were expensive. the service was slow and the waiter who served us, and again for breakfast, looked as though he was serving a life sentence rather than customers.
Breakfast was a buffet and quite extensive and good, although the miserable waiter was a bit of a downer.
The location is good behind the beach looking towards the ferry port across the bay but there is a much better beach round the corner.
The acid test: would I go back there? probably not.
