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. © Loved it all...

Had a cancelled outbound flight so couldn’t make booked night tried to change date as was in Sicily for a week….they had rooms & nights available but just wanted me to rebook & pay again not interested in trying to help or accommodate us … poor attitude as I believe hotels should be welcoming as possible ….shame as I really wanted stay but not so much that I’d pay twice.

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.

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.

I was lucky enough to find this fabulous hotel spa just around the corner from the villa we rented this month at Fontana Bianche. I have been suffering with a bad neck for several months at home & the travelling made it worse so I booked myself a massage here expecting the usual holiday rub with essential oils which I would've been happy with... OMG Menia (I hope I spelt that right) the masseuse was amazing - my Italian is terrible so we talked very little but she knew exactly where I was having trouble & what to do about it, giving me a thorough - I would say holistic massage - that left me much relieved. I wanted to go back the next day but she said I was not to return for three days..... I say this to point out it's not always about the money ! I slept better & had less pain in the following days than I have in months! I went back three days later & she saw me again to continue the treatment. She is absolutely gifted at her profession and I am going back to the UK painfree & rested. I cannot thank you & WhiteBay spa resort enough. On top of that - It's a beautiful place right on the beach & all the staff were friendly and welcoming too! Highly recommended.

This beach resort is conveniently located next to the beach with direct access. The sand beach is nice and not too busy. The staff is super friendly and hospitable. The points of improvement are: - They charge you for everything, so parking is another €10 per night, and renting sun beds another €15 per day. I think this should be included in the rate. Especially as the rates were pretty high for end of September (€180 per night!). Also for the Spa entrance or bottled water in the room you were charged extra. - The resort could use some maintenance. The walls were full of scratches, the bathrooms are outdated and don’t look too clean and neat anymore. - We were on the ground floor, and we couldn’t turn off the light of terrace so it was shining in the room at night (curtains didn’t complete close). - The AC was making too much noise (ticking sound). - Breakfast was very basic and not fresh, although the service was very Corona friendly. You could choose from the buffet and the waiter would put it on a plate for you. Furthermore, if you want to stay here make sure to rent a car. There isn’t much around Fontane Bianche so you need to get to Noto or Syracuse for lunch/dinner. The area overall is not amazing. All in all, the price/quality was off and I would not stay here again.
