We have just returned from a 7 night stay at Caol Ishka. The hotel and its rooms are very stylish, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Our room was one of two upstairs room and had a balcony, would actually have preferred a downstairs room as they had a patio with seating that our balcony didn't. I think this was because we requested a sea view which was nice too. My only minor complaint about the room was that the towels were a bit worn and frayed around the edges but as I say, a minor detail. The pool was nice but would have been better if the pool cleaning machine was put away and the broken sun loungers put away instead of being left outside.
Breakfast was good and had plenty of choice every day.
The staff were all very friendly and could not do enough to help. We got great advice on places to visit in the surrounding area. I would say having a car would be preferable, its a great base for exploring the region of Syracuse and beyond. Its about 2 miles to the main centre of Ortigia and it would not be advisable to walk as its a very busy road with no pavement. It cost about 15 euro each way in a taxi. All in all we loved it here and would recommend it.More
