Fantastic hotel. Great breakfast and dinners, great pool, great staff (in particular Mario, Orazio, Nelly and Angela), great beach bar.

The rooms are basic but are very well cleaned and do the job (and some have a view of Mount Etna).

The only draw back is that there isn't much going on in the local town of Riposte. However the train station is a 10 euro cab away which is ideal for day trips.

A great hotel in an excellent location. Was mostly impressed with the facilities, impeccably clean rooms and pool. Great buffet breakfast, pizzeria and restaurant. However the best thing about this hotel is its staff. Great receptionists and director who were very helpful and ready to go out of their way to help even during late at night. Really helpful. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable and relaxing. Strongly recommend this hotel.

Well situated, modern hotel with private car park and 2 outdoor swimming pools. The room was spacious, clean and equipped with a mini bar. Coffee/tea making facilities would be great though. Excellent food and choice for breakfast and dinner and great view from the room of Mount Etna.

The date of our stay: 25th July – 1st August
The hotel was mostly very good. It was very clean and tidy, the bed sheets were changed every day. There was an air conditioner, a safe and a minibar in the room. You also have reserved two new beach lounge chairs and a parasol for free. The service was also very good. The beach was beautiful and the water was clear. The staff at the reception was very kind and helpful, especially Vanessa!
The only problem was the food – for people, who paid for the half board. Breakfast was quite ok, although the pastry was a bit old and there wasn´t enough fruit and vegetables. Also the coffee machine was usually out of order. However, the real problem was with dinners. Overcooked pasta with beans, frozen fis, canned meat. Pear pure with skins and seeds in it as a dessert. Once we were given the leftovers from a party that was held at the hotel the previous day – every table something different. I would not expect that in a hotel like this. The service at dinners was also horrible during our stay. They were unprofessional and obviously hated thein jobs.
Once they brought a bowl with eggs for breakfast – unfortunatelly Theky were completely raw. One of the visitor wanted to crack it and spilled on him, so he went to the kitchen to tell them that they forgot to boil them. Instead of appologizing to him, they just laughed at him.
The only good food was in the hotel pizzeria.
It´s a pity, please get a better staff to the restaurant, the place would be perfekt otherwise.

I stayed here with my English group. I was really put off by reviews. The staff speak good English, more than many places in Sickly, there ARE places to eat nearby and the beach is across the road. There is also a little Shop. Great hotel with lovely staff, food excellent, I'm not sure what more people want. Staff go out of their way for you.
