We were one week at this hotel. Our room veranda had direct access to the small public sand beach with turquois waters. The hotel is pretty small with less than 20 rooms maybe half of it with the veranda to the beach. The beach gets crowded pretty on Sundays. The hotel provides you with sunbeds and an umbrella. The people at the beach were all friendly families and behaving well (no litter at the beach). For icecream or coffee there was a local bar. The restaurant Malafemmina was very good. Just don't order too much because the portions are huuuge. Special needs are taken care of, for instance my wife was made a special cake and scrambled eggs because of her gluten and lactose intolerance. Personel in generally very friendly. Apart from the food, the view from the restaurant is spectacular. The price was also very decent. I think it is the best place with a beach in eastern Sicily.

Been for a week at the Whitebay and will surely revisit. Rooms out of this world. If you book a seaview, your veranda is just 3 steps from the lovely sandy beach. You can book the spa entirely for you. With an indoor heated pool looking over the beach, sauna and showers. Breakfast very good with a wide choice of italian goodies and with an incredible view. We had dinner in the restaurant and when asked for dinner in room food and service were impeccable. Receptionists and all the staff were very welcoming and made our stay an unforgettable one. Well done to all, we will miss you but you'll definitely see us again.

Being presented to the bill on the last day was such a bummer!
They made us pay for a bathroom light in the ceiling that stopped working on the first day! 70€ for something that can't be our fault, and wasn't repaired during our stay!
It was simply our fault we let them know. They should have let us know they were going to put it on the bill and should have given us a chance to discuss this. This is shameless theft, and of course we left heavily disappointed after having had a beautiful stay at the pool suite.

What more can I say. Our own pathway to the beach with less than 10meters to the water and even more WOW was having our own private pool on the terrace over looking the sea.
The Staff were amazing with customer care at highest level. This location, venue, quality of meals are exceptional.
For anyone interested, please book the wellness & Spa experience at Whitebay. You will be amazed.
Thank you Sophia, Marika, Valentina for bringing us much love & care. We will be back.

We are an Italian couple who had a really nice stay for five days in this hotel in front of the beach. The rooms are modern and clean and I especially enjoyed the shower which is very big and comfortable. The staff was amazing, they are helpful with everything. I read a previous review that was complaining about the extra charges, but that is totally normal! The sea in front of the hotel is very clear. It’s true that it has lots of sea weed on the shore, but it depends on the days and if you walk two minutes to the main beach you find some spots free of sea weed which seem like a tropical place. We also enjoyed the spa which they reserve only for you and has a wonderful view overlooking the sea.

Stayed here for a couple nights. We just walked in and where kindly greated and where shown our room options.

The hotel is brand new and completely different from the older hotels in the area. Decor was modern and the rooms where your typical euro size with a nice sized bathroom and shower.

Being so close to such an amazing beach is good and bad for this place. We had a balcony on the beach but because it was high season it felt like there was little privacy.

Overall a nice place. The staff where super helpful and even gave us some tips on other beaches in the area which weren't as busy. The area in general is one of a kind and the beach is one of the best!

We have just returned from the White Bay resort, having spent a week there in August. The hotel itself is beautiful and right on the beach. We had a studio room with spa access. There was plenty of space, the room was clean and the view was amazing. There is an option to have breakfast in the room overlooking the beach, which we took advantage of.
The restaurant attached to the hotel also has amazing views. The food is spectacular- expensive but no more so than food of a similar standard elsewhere in Sicily.
The staff were lovely but I did have to ask 3 times if there were any local water sports. Each time I was informed that someone would get back to me. No one ever did and eventually I discovered some facilities by walking to the other end of the beach. I thought it was a bit odd that there was not much information provided about local amenities/ restaurants etc. Taxis are expensive- 60 euros return to Syracuse which makes it an expensive night out if you do not have a car.
With regards to the site- the beach is beautiful but being a public beach is absolutely packed in August. This means that there is no privacy on the balcony and it can be quite noisy until late at night. We were also woken at 6am at every morning by a very noisy vehicle, sounding what seemed like a warning bell as the beach was cleaned.I therefore recommend packing some earplugs.
Access to the spa does sound lovely but was not free, even though we had the ‘ spa ‘ room. We ended up not using it in the end.
All in all , this is a great hotel and location but if I were to go again, I would certainly avoid August and would probably hire a car.
