Beautiful course and fabulous food
Thought I would get in a couple of rounds while in Sicily. Had a wonderful stay here. The resort is a slightly older spot in a beautiful setting at base of Etna. The course was gorgeous - lava rock walls, olive groves, chestnut trees and vineyards, though a few of the holes were ridiculously narrow. Went with the dinner included package as the resort is somewhat isolated - the best food we had while in Sicily and we had some incredible meals. It was also an incredible value (we were in off season though the weather was perfect - go figure, Europeans always seem to vacation at the same times). Service was fabulous, generous pours of bourbon at the bar. The only negative would be a funky room setup and slightly worn and stained carpets. Maybe they should stick to stone or tile floors like all the other hotels in Sicily.

Stayed for my cousins wedding - it was good
The location of this hotel is awesome if you are staying near Mount Etna. Especially if you like golf of wineries. I am from NYC and it was just hard for me to adjust being in the middle of nowhere and not being able to get whatever you want whenever you want. For instance if the restaurants are closed in the hotel there is nowhere to get food or even a snack. No vending machines or anything. I woke up jet lagged at 3 AM and was very hungry. Other than that the lady at the front desk was awesome and a huge help. The bartender was funny and cool. The pool is beautiful, and I wish I got to play a round of golf because the course actually looked really nice. Try their white sparkling wine which they make on the property, it is delicious.

I Piccilolo
Stayed at ll Picciolo for a few nights whilst exploring the Etna and surrounding area. Hotel very comfortable and clean. Visit the local town of Castiglione Di Sicilia of an evening for aperitivo or dinner. Breakfast which was included was very good and staff attentive and helpful. Would stay here again. More beds are required around the pool though.
