Lovely hotel with very pleasant staff. Beautifull rooms with view on the sea. Nice swimming-pool (though not open in the evening). Nice restaurant with very friendly and fast staff. Unfortunately you only have wi.fi in the reception area. The bar is not open, but right outside the front door is the nicest little coffe-bar. Excellent for visits on Etna, in...

The room was quite nice. Clean, well equipped, but small bathroom. No bathtub. Very small TV. Beautiful pool. Nice, helpful staff. BUT, the food was very disappointing. This was my first trip to Italy, and I was looking forward to some great meals. As I was with a business tour group and the group had booked half-board, I could not...

Great place to stay at a lousy destination. Excellent hotel, just by the beach. Nice speaking pool. Friendly staff (people at the reception even spoke English). One disadvantage - very poor food. Very poor breakfast - one type of cheese and two types of salami..that's all pretty much. Suppers we're even worse. Especially the main course. Beware of room number...

Our room was comfortable and the bed good. The sea view was very small because there was another building in front. In the pool area there was no place to sit because there were a lot of people up until late in the afternoon. You had to get up early in the morning if you wanted to find a place...

We stayed here for three nights at the start of a week's guided coach tour and were very happy to return for the final night of the tour. Our arrival was slightly chaotic as 50 tired tourists tried to locate the rooms with 400 and 500 numbers when the hotel only has three floors with rooms. These rooms are all...

I stayed here for a week after booking a cheap getaway deal from England. I read the reviews and did not expect a big tourist presence in Riposto, but that did not bother me. During my stay, I didn't see any other hotels and it seems that Riposto is a holiday destination for Italians, largely. Having said that, the hotel...

We were a party of four adults and had two spacious, clean rooms for a week last July. My dad was there as a returning WW2 veteran on the Hero`s return scheme. We were well looked after by the staff and ate and drank well. The hotel is well situated near the sea-front but still with easy parking if you...

Had a few days in Riposte and stayed at the Grand Yachting Place. Helpful staff who made good restaurant recommendations. A good base for day trips to Etna, Taormina, Catania and Syracuse. And Riposte itself is a really nice little place, as well. We liked it as tourism is still emerging here, so you get a slightly more authentic feel...

We stayed here for our honeymoon. I will start by saying that the hotel staff were very helpful and polite. We took the half board option, the evening meal was nice but very small helpings and very little choice. The only wine available is the house white or red which is not the best (despite there being a display cabinet...
