Reviewed 31 August 2012

We spent a week at this hotel in August. From the moment we arrived the staff could not do enough to help us. We met only one other english speaking family during the week and the hotel seemed popular with mainly Italian families. However the staff were friendly and went out of their way to include us and make us feel welcome. We particularly appreciated our special treatment in the restaurant where the staff went over the menu with us every night. We also enjoyed our late night chats with Giuseppe at the bar.
The rooms were kept immaculately clean and tidy. The shower cubicle was a little small but it was adequate.
The hotel ran a minibus up and down to the beach but we found the walk was very easy and did not use it. The beach was very rocky so remember to bring water shoes. However there was never a problem getting a free sun lounger and an umbrella at any stage of the day.
The only disappointment we had was that the hotel swimming pool closed between 12.30 and 15:30 each day. You also have a wear a swimming cap in the pool.
The best thing about the hotel was the food. An antipasti buffet was served every night and to be honest we could have filled up on this alone even without the pasta and meat courses! The menu was varied and delicious every night and included wine.
The location of the hotel was great for day trips to stromboli and the islands however it was a little remote from the other main tourist destinations in Sicily. The roads around the hotel were a little tight for driving on especially out towards Patti however a car is necessary if you want to travel about the island. Definitely bring a Sat Nav! The hotel had free car parking which was great.
Overall we had a brilliant time at the hotel and found it exceptional value for money.

Room Tip: Definitely worthwhile paying the extra for a sea view balcony room. The view of the bay is fantastic

I enjoyed a week in this hotel! It located on a rock above the water and provides a great view on Tyrrhenian Sea. Staff is helpful and smiling, most of them speak at least basic English (rarity on Sicily). Furniture in room is old but unbroken, convenient and clean, only shower cabin should be larger. The hotel has its own beach with sunbeds and umbrellas. Sea is fantastic, the water is clear and warm! Animation team makes a rich program (but almost all on Italian). And finally: special Sicilan Dinner on Friday was super!

Room Tip: If you have a choice - choose sea-view rooms, view is fantastic!

My family and I stayed here for a day and had a great time. The location of the hotel is probably the best one in town, right above the sea. It was lovely to wake up and hear the waves of the ocean, with the window open. They have sea-facing or hill-facing rooms. The price was a baurgain. Food was great, by hotel standards. The hotel is not new, but it is clean and people there are very very friendly. They have swimming pool, jacuzi, animators, evening events, care for children, they organise trips to the nearby Eolian Islands, scuba diving classes, and lots more.

Room Tip: Go for the sea-view room. The sun sets on the ocean, amazing view. You can also hear/sea the waves.
