Location spectacular BUT rooms outdated, food avg.
What makes this place is the location and the staff. As many reviews state the rooms and common areas inside the hotel are seriously outdated and musty smelling. At almost $300 a night...it's not a great value for your money. It's too bad because the location and the staff are amazing. Another item that is disappointing is the food, being in Sicily...there are some of the most amazing chef's and products that are local. It is obvious that they do not use quality products. The views form their breakfast room and lunch restaurant are spectacular but theirs food is just average. Cheeses were rubbery and salty. The orange juice was supposedly fresh but not sweet. The prepared eggs are definitely a mix or powder. The one good thing is you can order your own eggs if you like. I would only go back if I knew that they renovated the rooms and improved their food...it was tough to smell the musty odor each day when you are paying that price for a room. Also you are kind of forced to eat in the hotel since their are limited restaurants close by.
