I came with my family for a two day holiday. Staff were not understanding at all, 10 year old could not swim in indoor pool. Were advised to swim in the outdoor pool in October. No one advised. Very very disappointed. Never again in this hotel.

We traveled to the Picciolo Etna hotel for a hastily arranged golf break. Without a doubt, the care, effort and wonderful customer service that received from Valentina made the whole trip seamless and very memorable. From dinner and vineyard recommendations/bookings and transport, nothing was too much trouble. Good customer service can be manufactured, but when it is genuine like it is here it can make your trip. Special mentioned to Carla who was also great on the front desk.

We played this course once and were disappointed. We payed 150 Euros for 2 players plus cart plus rental clubs and it wasn´t worth the money. The holes are not badly designed but in a sorrow state of maintenance, especially the tee boxes, cart paths and everything right and left of the fairways. Nobody seems to care about repairing pitchmarks. Restaurant was closed, only the halfway house was open. the whole place looks like it could be closed soon.

We upgraded to a suite as we preferred to have a bigger room with a seperate living area, the room was lovely overlooking the 18th hole on the golf course. Coming from a hospitality background myself, I would have welcomed a free room upgrade especially considering how quiet the resort was (I guess due to lack of tourism due to COVID). The bar in the evening was quite dead, not much atmosphere at the resort really. We did have lunch once from the main restaurant and it was good enough. We had our own car so it was easy to drive for around 15/20 minutes to nicer more authentic restaurants. Ps. The golf course isn't well signalled, but still manageable. I would return as overall its a good value stay.

NO SERVICE at all. No air condition outside is 32DEGREES and inside 25.5DEGREES. In the RESTAURANT you have to wait to have a table for other GUESTS to FINISH. Very small POOL. Garage is EXTREMELY DIRTY and smells of FINISH.

Response from Mauro Virga, Gestione del fatturato at Il Picciolo Etna Golf Resort & Spa
Responded Aug. 22, 2020
We are sorry that you have experienced some problems during your stay at our resort. Our daily commitment is aimed at improving services and comfort for our kind guests. The air conditioning in the rooms works perfectly and we read in your review that it recorded 25 degrees compared to an external temperature above 30. Access to the restaurant and other services of the structure are strongly conditioned by the application of anti-covid protocols. Therefore, for your safety, we asked you for waiting since we need some time to sanitize and set up a table. We are sure that during the booking phase you had the chance to view the photographs published on our site from which you can always check the features of our rooms, the restaurant, the SPA, the golf course and, of course, the swimming pool. We thank you for reporting and we will make the information about our services and structure even clearer and more understandable. The direction
