                          This is a great hotel that we would certainly recommend. Situated just in front of Syracusa, the location is exceptionnal. Very good service, nice and large rooms.

                          The peace and quiet, like we were the only people staying there.

                          The staff had very little english.

                          The location is very nice with a view on the old city Syracusa. Inside the rooms are well decorated and details are well thought trough. On warm days and want to be near Syracusa it is the best choice. Nice beach, rock garden, swimming pool (really poor showers at the pool).

                          The place did not give me the feeling to be special or a five star guest at all. Some of the rooms really have a bad view. Check in desk do their best but still not a five star treatment. Cleaning ladies are very good, effective. The staff of the restaurant are poor. The beach does not have drink or food service, no showers, poor entry, grumpy staff. The beach is very nice for the rest. Same count for the rock 'beach'. All in all it has potential but needs good management. For the price you pay you will be disappointed.

                          The location is amaizing! The rooms are well equiped, beautiful and clean. The staff is perfect, helpful, charming. The breakfast is absolutely perfect. You better to chose sea-vue rooms, while the vue is amaizing, and the non sea-vue rooms hase a parking place vue, which is too big contrast. The beach is gorgious.

                          It was a beautiful hotel, with a rocky beach and a sandy beach and fantastic pool. The room was excellent and we had a fabulous view of Ortigia. The Nesos restaurant was a bit too sophisticated for my son, but they did make simpler dishes for him to enjoy. The location was perfect and the views amazing.

                          We thought the food was good quality, but not to our liking. Not enough choice,the two restaurants had very similar menus must too expensive in comparison to other places in the area.
