We stayed at the property in August 2019. The service we received from the staff was excellent and the manager of the resort was very kind and helpful. Its not often you get such kind attentive service and we travel regularly each year. can thoroughly recommend the resort. We enjoyed using the pool and tennis court whilst at the resort. The breakfast on offer each morning had plentiful options to choose from.

We are family of four, on 5 day trip around Sicily. Our first idea was to sleep at one property at night, till we came to Alcantara Resort. We stayed here for 2 nights. We slept in nice, clean, tidy room, on king bed + couch for kids that became bed ideal for boys of 4 and 5y. Beside good size room ๐Ÿ›, we also had a terrace overlooking property garden ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒดpool ๐ŸŠ and Etna as a scenery ๐ŸŒ‹ Just beautiful! Breakfast was rich, continental with selection of cakes. ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿฅ“๐Ÿฅ–๐Ÿฅ๐ŸฅงStaff was super friendly to create a fruit turtle ๐Ÿข ๐Ÿฅ ๐Ÿ‡ to the kids! ๐Ÿ’š After a long day hike to Etna and Alcantara gorge we managed to enjoy their pool and garden, being offered cocktail ๐Ÿน and snacks ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿซ Staff friendly announced they have the last 2 working days for this season, so the kitchen was not opened any more. We were though friendly advised of some neighborhood restaurants. We can say just the nice words to the staff, as they continuously asked us about the stay and were super helpful on information of our trips. Surely, if visiting Sicily, Alcantara resort shall be the place to stay! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š

It is always nice and pleasant to receive good reviews but even more beautiful when it comes to close an excellent season. As we say "The cherry on the cake". We will wait you again to the Alcantara Resort. A big thank you from all the staff.

We have just spent a wonderful week at Alcantara. The staff here are fabulous especially Mary, Pina, Ale and Ferdinando. The grounds are beautiful and very well looked after. My children particularly enjoyed the swimming pool. The rooms are clean and modern and the superior rooms have large balcony terraces with great views towards Etna. My daughter is a Coeliac and the hotel ensured she had a variety of gluten free bread and cakes to go with her breakfast. The breakfast buffet was marvellous with a large selection of delicious food. We also had 2 evening meals in the restaurant which were equally as good. The area of Gaggi was quiet (we stayed in October) so having a hire care is recommended especially for visiting the beach and mount Etna. We did take a short walk to 2 great restaurants- Les Barriques and Cycas village, they have very different styles but both very Sicilian & charming. I cannot fault this hotel but a couple of suggestions for small improvement would be tea/coffee facilities in the rooms, bath robes and better WIFI signal. We love Alcantara! ๐Ÿ’š

The resort is located in the small village of Gaggi in the Alcantara valley. Not much action in this town, so if you looking for a vacation where you want to fully relax, then this is the place. Itโ€™s not far from Gardini-Naxos and Taormina where you can go to by car or bus. The staff at the resort are very sweet and friendly. Most of them speak both English and German. The are nice, clean and airconditioned. The breakfast is of good standard. The only minus was that the place had 4 parties out of the 6 nights we stayed. Some of the nights the music was loud which made it difficult to sleep. Other than that the place is recommended - especially to families.

This is a beautiful place with a perfect garden (a little oasis) and a good restaurant. The rooms are very small with a noisy refridgerator in the bedroom. At the resort and in the village of Gaggi there is nothing to do. However, Toarmina, Savoca (Bar Vitelli) and the Etna are in the neighbourhood.
