Stayed here for 8 days after a period in Taormina. We stayed in the new part of the hotel which was recently completed. Everything was very new and the hotel and grounds were all very nice. The area is fairly rural and peaceful but only about twenty minutes from Siracusa either by taxi or the hotel's courtesy transport which went on a regular basis.
There was also courtesy transport to the beach at Arenella.
We had a suite with spacious bedroom, lounge area and a big bathroom with both bath and separate shower - also lots of storage.
All the staff were excellent and could not have been more helpful - at reception and in the restaurant. Food was great - big buffet breakfast and a nice menu for dinner.
Plenty of walking in the area - marine conservation area on rocky coast about ten minutes walk from the hotel and also along coast from Arenella.
The hotel had a huge spa area - also very new and reasonably priced for treatments. There is a nice indoor pool in the spa and a large outdoor pool with bar. Also across the road in the old part of the hotel is another pool.
Try the wine tasting at the hotel if you can - good value and a great introduction to Sicilian wines.
Overall very good indeed and we will definitely try to return.More
