We stayed one night after our arrival in Catania. We were warmly welcomed by Salvatore, who recognized how tired we were from our overnight flight and made us coffee. Our room was spacious and modern- an excellent value.The restaurant was outstanding for both dinner and the breakfast buffet. All in all an excellent choice for one night or more.

Hotel and Restaurant were just absolutely perfect, very quiet, very, very clean, delicious fresh food at the restaurant and outstanding breakfast. The service was perfect too, could not have been any better. The location ist near to Catania (25 km), which gives you a lot of options for visiting neighboring areas - Taormina, Etna, and more. Of course, for very... More

We were cycle touring around Etna but arrived by train with our bikes packed. The train decided not to stop at the close-by station and stopped at the next station. The hotel staff had already offered to pick us up from the local station but still drove to the next station to collect us. This reflects the ethos of this... More

Hotel Paradise is a wonderful place to stay when you require calm and great service. Beautiful view on the Etna from the room, it was lovely to spend the day at the pool. The decoration has something from another time, it feels like you are in a Sofia Copola’s movie, a very interesting experience. The staff was kind and very... More

We arrived in Catania late evening and wanted to stay somewhere out of the city and enroute to Enna. We had a wonderful welcome despite the fact they were very busy with an event. The room was very nice and better than many 4 star hotel rooms I have stayed in in the UK. It was better than expected considering... More

Hospitallity at it's best, very comfortable rooms, great food and a lovely pool with a view on the Etna. The severe storm that day had resulted in some electronic issues for them, one of which was the loss of the wifi. When the manager (owner?) heard we needed it to book a hotel for the next day, he graciously offered... More

Just enjoyed a single night at the beginning of our grand tour of Sicily, and we couldn't have got off to a better start. Clean, tidy and decorated (it would appear recently) to a very high standard, this is a lovely family-run business where quite literally, nothing is to too much to ask for. I cannot commend the owners highly... More

We travelled for the last two weeks of August 2015 touring Sicily and stayed here for 3 nights (23 Aug 2015 - 26 Aug 2015). It was the best hotel we stayed in for the whole duration and far better than Grand Palace Hotel in Marsala which was a disappointment given that it is a 5 Star place. The hotel... More

The hotel with its 4 floors looks tidy. Ample free parking is available in front of the building which is set back from the road. The House is situated a few kilometres outside of Maria di Licodia and is probably difficult to reach for tourists without a car. Maria di Licodia itself has not much to offer. Reception was very...
