5 star prices but not 5 star

The location was outstanding but hotel was in the middle of nowhere. The prices at the restaurants and pool cafe were very high for the food but since they had a captive audience they could charge. Shuttle services to town were not available in the evening and taxi each way was 25 euros. On the plus side, the private beach was what made our holiday.

Lovely stay

The hotel has the most amazing views of the water, private beach and Siracusa. The room was comfortable but the decor was absolutely horrendus. It looked more like a brothel than a 5 star. The restaurants are both overpriced and lack of atmosphere and service. Breakfast is good. Overall a lovely stay but surely not a 5 star hotel.

Lovely hotel

We stayed at this hotel on the last night of our honeymoon as a little treat. It was lovely and very swanky! If you're looking for character and charm it's probably not the place for you as it's all very new and lavish. However if you want to sit in a jacuzzi watching the sunset, choose between a rocky beach, sandy beach or the pool and have massages and nice food then it's the place for you - it doesn't come cheap though!

Perinteinen sisilialainen loma

Perinteinen italialainen sisustus, hieno oma ranta. Aamiainen aika suppea, pelkkää pullaa melkein. Puuroa ja munakasta sai tilata erikseen, kuitenkin ilmaiseksi.
