                  A 15 min de la ville, merveilleux endroit pour apprécier la mer et la piscine + le spa. belles infrastructures discrètes et élégantes. Excellent rapport qualité/prix.

                  The owners make the best use of the location. Breakfast on the veranda watching the sun rise over the Mediterranean is truly breathtaking.

                  The reception staff weren't overly friendly. It could be a cultural thing.

                • Couple

                  great views , get a sea-view room. ncie facilities and breakfast, overall a great stay

                  we ate at the restaurant once and the food was not overly exciting whilst a bit pricey. with a wealth of great restaurants nearby, dine out

                • Couple
                  9.2

                  The breakfast room has a splendid sea view. Staff at reception was very friendly, helpful and flexible.

                • Couple
                  5.8

                  The room was very clean and comfortable and the view from the hotel was excellent. The pool was great. A restaurant (Umberto Baffo) about 100m north of the hotel was very friendly, had good food and reasonable prices. While the location is very scenic, there is not much to do in the area of the hotel so renting a car is a good idea.

                  The service was generally unfriendly. We felt like we were inconveniencing the staff anytime we asked for any help (for example, I got a very dirty look from the bartender when I asked for ice which I needed to ice a sore foot). We wanted to check that our flight was still on schedule the night before our departure so we asked for internet connectivity. Minimum was one hour we were told. It turns out that this much time was actually almost necessary as it took about two minutes for each webpage to load. Breakfast was reasonable but if you're staying a few days, the unchanged menu does get a bit tired. Overall, we just felt that this hotel was wasting a great, seaside location by not adding a fun and friendly atmosphere for its guests.

                  Nice hotel, to the beach, swimming in between the rocks, also swimming pool. Beautiful rooms, palms. Many rooms. At first there was a problem with our reservation but they found a good and fast solution. Polite and professional personnel.

                • Group of friends
                  7.4

                  It has a nice location, and the view is nice.

                  The sea can not be seen from most of the rooms. The breakfast is quite poor.

                • Group of friends
                  9.2

                  The best sicilian food in the Hotel restaurant. The staff was very very friendly, kind and considerate.

                  Lot of staff can't speak english language. Except restaurant and receptions. But unfortunatelly in the pool bar, the staff can't sepak english therefore so many times it occurred to us that is not served at the pool bar. Was when we gave up after waiting 15 minutes.

                  6.2

                  The area and reception service were fine, view nice. Room spacy and clean.

                  The food service chaos - too little stuff or they dont know that insalata usually is served before or at least with the meal. I wouldnt eat there, but also theres no alternatives nearby. Food itself was fine.

                • Group of friends
                  9.2

                  The hotel has a beautiful location, amazing view and a very nice beach. Really worth the price.

                  Little bit far from the city center.

                • Couple
                  7.4

                  Well situated hotel, little bit far away from the down town. The bus and the timetable two different thing.

                  The staff and the breakfast was terrible. They were rude and can not speak English and they can not smile and can not helpfull.

                  Room ok but that's about it.

                  Not many guests so the lounge bar didn't open and the only place for a predinner apertif was the breezy poolside bar. Dinner was limited; 'the chef recommends' gave just a choice of two dishes for each course and we were told that was it! Quality and quantity was fine though. Breakfast was a disaster - raw scrambled egg, half-grilled bacon, a toaster that eventually dried out the bread, a boiler/steamer for whole eggs didn't work. We checked out a day early.

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  Breakfast was good, location excellent. .

                  Regret food in restaurant was not up to standards and very expensive. The bar inside was not open in the evening. The pre dinner cocktails were rather expensive too.
