Don't waste your time on big cities and big name hotels. This was a great way to see some real Sicilian culture and experience great "non-tourist" food. Staff was helpful, breakfast was nice and you are only a 15 to 25 minute drive to Catania.
We stayed here at the end of our Sicilian trip and used it as a base for both the north and south approach to Etna. It was just the bit of luxury we needed. The hotel really is perched on the edge of the cliff with moth a large pool (looking out to sea) and steps in to the sea complete with sea front solarium.
The rooms have everything you need, the standard is fairly basic but does the job the classic is that little bit more comfortable ( we were upgraded part was through the stay due to faulty air conditioning).
There are two bars the more atmospheric on being down by the pool/ sea. The restaurant was nice but a little limited I. Selection and quite expensive for what you get. There however is an amazing pizzeria about 5 mins walk away so you won't go hungry.
All in all a very enjoyable and relaxing few days.

While booking the room I gave the operator the address of the Relative where I would be staying so as to be nearby. He said it was very close that was NOT TRUE it was a half hour drive each way to go see them and made it very inconvienent to visit traveling that far and spending an Hour a day driving back and forth was very iritating.
