Good location, can get the local bus to Mondello beach and the shuttle bus to Palermo although this service only goes until 8pm. The staff are very friendly and helpful, be careful with the in room minibar especially with young children as the prices on regular items are very high.

Grand hotel but with some room for improvement

The hotel is grand and the gardens/pool area lovely. The location is on the edge of Palermo but they run a shuttle bus in high season.. there are however limited places so it is wise to reserve early, taxis will cost around €20. The staff are helpful and welcoming, but the service at breakfast for coffee is extremely slow and often we had finished breakfast by the time that it had arrived. Wi fi is also only in public areas unless you want to pay €9 for in room access, which was a bit disappointing for a 5* hotel. I have stayed in many hotels of this star rating across the world and although it is an attractive hotel, I did find it to be overly pretentious.

Excellent holiday for ladies travelling alone

The hotel is everything it says on the website and is as beautiful as the photos portray. The staff are excellent especially in the restaurant. The food is fantastic and cooked to order so be patient. Buffet breakfast first class ;lots of choice and well cooked and fresh. The pool is extremely clean and well maintained; there were always sunbeds so none of that silliness of having to get there early to bag a place. The free shuttle works well although see next papagraph. The shuttle has to be booked but there is no record kept by the driver about who has booked so we were once left in Palermo because amother couple had turned up without booking and as the people carrier was fun has assumed everyone was there. Our only problem was that communication between guests and staff is not good. Examples would be that there were two special evenings; a buffet by the pool one night and a champagne and oysters evening in the bar on another. Apparently we should have booked but there was absolutely no publicity within the hotel about these. We understand that you have to be 'in the know.' Also the staff know little or nothing about any trips to other places so you are on your own there but get to the station and there are trains there that go everywhere. Overall we would definitely stay there again although don't go there if you want to tour the island it's difficult.

Prachtvolles Hotel mit dem Charme eines alten Palazzo, malerisch gelegen oberhalb des Yachthafens mit Blick über die ganze Bucht, schöner, üppiger Garten, sehr gutes Frühstücksbuffet. Unverständlich: für den Granite (Frühstücksbuffet) wurde teilweise extra berechnet, das ist einem Haus dieser Kategorie wohl kaum angemessen. Eine tolle Sache fanden wir den Shuttle, der einen unkompliziert und ohne Stress vom Hotel zur Stadtmitte bringt. Abendessen: bedauerlicherweise wird von Seiten des Hotels nicht klar und deutlich auf den (anderweitig kommunizierten) Dresscode hingewiesen, die Leute kreuzen teilweise in unmöglicher Aufmachung zum Dîner auf (Gummilatschen, etc.).

Cons: Le wifi !
Un hôtel dans un superbe endroit, avec une très belle vue. Un personnel très compétent et très à l'écoute. Un superbe petit dejeuner. Des chambres dans un vénérable batiment mais néanmoins très confortables.

Gehobenes Grand Hotel für Palermo-Besucher

Lage und Parkanlage mit Pool sehr schön. Sehr gutes Frühstück-Buffet auf der Terrasse mit schönem Ausblick auf das Meer und den Hafen für Privatschifffahrt von Palermo. Freundliches Personal in allen Bereichen. Für Palermo-Besucher und das Bad im Meer ist ein Shuttle bus vorhanden. Ein kleines sizilianisches Restaurant im normalen Preisbereich (meistens vorhanden in einem 4-5 Sterne Hotel) würde das Angebot bereichern.

Bon rapport qualité prix

Cet hôtel est sublime dommage qu'il soit excentré il demeure néanmoins l'un des meilleurs hôtel de la ville Le service de navette compte tenu de l’éloignement est insuffisant , trop peu fréquent et pas assez de places
