Reviewed 22 July 2013

My daughter and I have been traveling in Sicily for about 8 days. Our stay at the Corsaro Hotel on Mount Etna has been one of the high points of our trip. We stayed at their beautiful and spacious hotel for two nights. What a great hotel!!! Davide and Alessandro are brothers. They own and run the hotel. They really care about their guests. Hotel Corsaro is the nicest hotel that we have stayed in here in Sicily. We have been all over Sicily in our rental car and Hotel Corsaro is by far the nicest hotel that we have been in. Davide and Alessandro are marvelous hosts. I don't think I could say anything more positive than I have said in this post. Thank you. jds Gainesville Florida

Room Tip: We had a terrace room looking out on Catania. The view was spectacular.

This is the best place where to stay if you want to "live" the Etna volcano, to relax and taste good food. You can walk to the nearby cable car and get almost to the top of Volcano; you can also chose between several kind of guided tours. Once you book, you will get immediately an email providing very useful information. We booked the top floor room with terrace, offering great view.

Good points: Excellent location. Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms and hotel are both very clean. Food is OK and good value if you book half pension. Wellness area (sauna, hot tub etc) really good. Book early and through the link the owner will email you to use the wellness area. Hotel is a great base for walking and biking on Etna.
The only bad point: Out of season bus access to Etna South is a little limited - 1 bus per day only. However, the hotel staff are very helpful in arranging, lifts, taxis etc if you don't have a car.
Overall - HIGHLY recommended.

Room Tip: Superior Room with Terrace. 204 or 205. Excellent views

On our first evening, from our balcony we watched Etna erupting at what seemed to be just a few hundred metres up the mountain - it was truly awesome. All round, the views are superb from the hotel up and down the mountain. Rooms are clean and comfortable with tiled floors; ours had a lovely modern shower room. All ideal for dealing with walking gear and returning dusty and tired from hikes on Etna. The sauna and whirlpool spa are great for relaxing muscles. Good food and drinks with plenty of choice at dinner and breakfast.
The hotel is two minutes walk from the cable car that takes you from 2000m to 2500m - truly convenient.
The staff are friendly and helpful. Davide the manager was excellent: we left some travel documents and he personally delivered them to us in Taormina the next day - how's that for service!

Beautiful hotel, clean rooms, nice bathroom, awesome location. Free wifi in rooms with good signal. Kind host and a good breakfast with a vareity of options, even hard boiled eggs. I tried negotiating a price since the hotel was virtually empty and we decided to stay at the last minute, but he would not bring down the price. Very nice place to stay though.
