    The staff is nice, and the situation is right on the seafront. The ahbitació are comfortable and well equipped.

    Very expensive bar, coffee 3 € for example. The location of the hotel incònde to traffic problems, and for what price Exes hotel, spa very small. The cleaning could be better, under the bed and the corners of the room not cleaned well. Poor value for money.

    Superb

    Fabulous location right on the edge of the water. Easy distance to commute to airport. Hotels own restaurant was excellent, and there were local restaurants that offered inexpensive options when required. Spacious accomodation, with the hotel being light and airy and a pleasure to stay in. Great place to relax and do nothing but enjoy the ambiance.

    Localizazão excelente para que tem carro- o que era o meu caso, estacionamento gratuito, pequeno almoços bons ,zona calma e sossego bom para descansar e ao fim do dia de percorrer a varias cidades e vilas da sicilia, tomar um baínho de mar ou piscina e, relaxar.tv com HD.

    Não se admite num hotel desta categoria não ter wirleless gratuito e ter de pagar 8€/dia.

    Enough away from the city noise, but enough close to arrive in downtown in 15 minutes by car. Magnificent seaview.

    The main restaurante menu is good but not offering too many options specially for children.

    Fabulous

    Wonderful hotel with amazing views, nice big pool & pool area with bar that serves lunch with really friendly staff. Rooms again had stunning views, big beds & walk in shower. Breakfast was fun, sitting out on the balcony overlooking the sea.

    Only bad point was the hotel restaurant with disgusting food & rude staff. But we eat out most of time, so not a problem. Lots of restaurants in the fishing village of Aci Trezza. Just remember you’re in Italy & the pace is a lot slower, so go with the flow.

    Nice airy scenic location, acceptable range of services (pool, spa, bars and restaurant)..

    Old facilities maintained to functional standard, unprepared unfriendly staff, very disappointing breakfast

    Good

    Efficient, Clean, Beautiful setting on the waters edge. I was quiet due to the time of the year. The car park was very useful and worked well.

    The staff were very reserved and had no interest in their customers. They only responded to direct questions and I felt that there was no warmth in their welcome. The breakfast was boringly the same every day. They do not know how to do a hot breakfast, watery scrambled eggs and greasy bacon. The pool was closed and unfortunately the sea was a bit too cold.

    The view from my room was beautiful.

    The hotel was dirty and the staff was incredibly unhelpful and rude. The surrounding area was run down to the point that I did not feel safe walking on the street outside the hotel. They charged extra for EVERYTHING.

    Good

    rooms and location are nice and clean.

    Bad breakfast, same things for 10 days, restaurant staff bad and unpolite. Overall location very good, but the staff makes the stay not so pleasant.
