I rang this hotel before booking as we were travelling via public transport and needed to know if it was accessible from the station and local bus.Tthe response was 'yes', but they forget to say you have to walk up a 300 metre long laneway that is extremely steep. At the same time you have to avoid cars that are eccelerating fast to get to the top of the hill.
After arriving in the very hot weather dragging a suitcase and up the steep hill the reception area has no chairs and no airconditioning. No offer of a drink of water!!Iit was 3pm and our room was not ready...another 30 minutes.
So off to the pool area to get a drink and something to eat. The food was prepackaged panini that had to be heated to make it barely edible.
At least the room was air conditioned, although small and dark. The bathroom was very small and no room to move in the shower.
We decided to have dinner in the restaurant but it was closed for a private function and we were told to climb the 100 steps downhill to the beach restaurant....too steep.
The next day we found out was a public holiday so we asked reception to call us a taxi to take us to the temples. Well the taxi arrived and when we got to the temples the driver had no English and wrote down that he wanted 200 euro for the trip. The doors were locked but we finally parted paying 40 euro....happy to arrive at all!
The next day we were leaving by train but told it was a public holiday again so we were told to catch a local bus at 7am and then a bus to Palermo at 8am. We took the local bus finally arrived at 8am and then the Palermo bus din't arrive after waiting with lots of other people for 3 hours.
Luckily a local took pity on us and got us a train ticket the same day back to Palermo.
Not an experience we want to repeat and the lack of assistance and knowledge from the hotel staff.
Think carefully before going to this hotel...especially if you are a tourist and only speak English.
