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.
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.
It's not for everybody but if you'd like to experience La Dolce Vita '50's style, and would appreciate a huge room with a balcony, in a what was once a grand hotel, this place is for you! The hotel has seen better days, but our room and
bathroom (with a tub) were immaculate. Luxurious, freshly pressed linen towels are delivered daily. Comfortable beds. Very quiet rooms.The pool is set in a lovely garden. The warm and friendly staff works hard to please guests ,although most do not speak English. Free parking in front.

The owners are lovely people but some improvements need to be done to offer better service: clean bathroom and kitchen ... and fridge. Bulbs should be working, hob as well ... The place is spacious and the swimming pool fantastic. It would be so lovely with a bit more care.
