Delightful accomodations among orchard trees and vegetation. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Guizy (mother) and Francesca (daughter who speaks English fluently) were completely helpful with all requests, including local directions and suggestions, printing airline boarding passes, dinner reservations, etc. Note: Guizy looks like Francesca's older sister! Dinner at their restaurant by Chef Alessandro Russo and waiter Alessandro (same name, no relation) was a wonderful reflection of local Sicilian dishes with many courses and excellent price value. Good wine, bread, and after dinner liquors were free with the meal. Chef Russo is a talented, warm and engaging person. Our first dinner was such a wonderful experience that we returned for dinner (ask for the fish dinenr) the following 2 nights of our stay. Unusual for us, since we had a rental car and could easily go anywhere. In fact, other tourists who were not guests at the hotel also returned for repeat performances. One night everyone celebrated the 60th birthday of one of the diners with song and champagne. Also San Marco Beach (sand, not rocks) was only 2 miles from the hotel and provided a restaurant, chairs, umbrellas, etc. I would highly recommend Antico Borgo for a "home away from home".
