It was really a pleasure... Beautiful wide beach, huge comfortable room, good breakfast, big free parking, free wifi. Very close to Scala Turchi - 20 minutes walk by the beach. Great pool with beach chairs and umbrellas. Very quiet and safe area. Absolutely worth a trip!

The reception staff were very helpful and even when some of them did not speak good English (this is Sicily) they did their best to help with anything you needed. They arranged a taxi for us as we did not want to drive and the taxi drivers were very reliable always where they said they would be and on time... More

Here for 2 nights. Very classy hotel on the beach. A little difficult to find. Breakfast excellent with a few hot items. Had dinner in the dining room last night. Limited menu not pricy at all. Definitely a 4 star!

First off.. the good things... It is in a pretty brilliant location though at the end of a beachside one way street, it has fantastic sea views and the pool my family and I really enjoyed. It is the right size as well with just enough people and no overcrowding. The beach was good as well and not too crowded... More

The hotel was under staffed with no working wifi, which appeared to be normal, an arrogant major domo in the resturant who was down right rude and the food average. no one to help with the baggage though i walk with two crutches. the room was small with a view of a wall and the road

Nice pool, located on beach. Wifi extremely poor. Breakfast was no more than ok. Room decor from the sixties. Hotel is clean. We did not have lunch or dinner at hotel so cannot comment. Porto Empedocles is a very ordinary town. Overall evaluation is average.
