The sandy beach is just 5 minutes walk from the hotel. The service and the quality of the food was really professional in the restaurant. We had some ups and downs with the city, but the hotel never disappointed us.
Really nice hotel with great rates. Rooms are very clean and updated. There is a pool and also a private beach across the street. Also close to the airport which is nice. The hotel staff was super accommodating and friendly. Overall 5 stars!
First the bad points, if you wanted to use this for a base for sightseeing without a car, this is not the hotel for you. No bus service or shuttle to Catania. The beach was opposite but seemed closed when we were there. The good points, close to the airport, very clean and comfortable rooms with a balcony. The breakfast buffet was the best we had on our holiday, plenty of choice and you could sit out on the terrace. We had a very pleasant day by the pool. The beds were very comfortable and plenty of beach towels were left out for guests use. It was not overcrowded and there was no music blaring out to spoil our relaxation. We had a lovely waitress the first evening whose name I didn't get who although she was busy, was always smiling and made us feel very welcome. The trattoria across the road even though it didn't look much, did lovely food and is worth a visit. All in all a pleasant stay.
The hotel is equipped very well. It has its own restaurant which we did not try but there are many guests every evening. Breakfast is amazing! Juices, smoothies, croissants, fruit... Everything is delicious and fresh! Our standard room was clean and spacious enough. Very friendly staff always willing to help you. Hotel beach is also very nice and clean but the public surrounding is not.. unfortunately.. but this is not an issue of the hotel. The only negative aspect is the location. In the evening it seems to be a bit dangerous to walk outside. And if you want to go to the city, you have to either use taxi (15 eur) or a public bus. Public buses are quite unreliable and there is practiacally no time schedgule. In the end, it was a beautiful vacation for us!
Stayed at hotel as part of tour group. Our second NH hotel. Quality very good but i guess tour co gets good deals because of location. Hotel has beach across the road but it was closed. Pool quite nice but we had very little time to enjoy it. Rooms very comfortable. Food and restaurant service good. Despite 5 star hotel next door, area did not feel very interesting. I wouldnt stay here for beach holiday and a little too far from town. Close to airport for late/early flights.
Immaculately clean room, excellent breakfast, pool and beach great. The staff here are a real asset. Slightly more remote than we expected, wouldn't recommend walking to Catania main road to cross, we caught the bus from right outside the hotel.
Good points - comfortable room with plenty of space, good bathroom facilities, delicious food, friendly and helpful staff, good location for the beach. Not so good points - a long way from the town centre, only useful really for a short transfer to or from the airport. The private beach was closed, but right next to it is a free beach, both were as rubbish-strewn as each other. The bar never opened, you were directed to the outside bar by the pool and they then went inside (to the kitchen?) to make any drinks. Our room had a lovely balcony view of the rear carpark and plant rooms! Aircraft noise was noticeable, even with the balcony door closed.
I really don't know where to start. The staff is helpful, but I think it is a lost case. The hotel is worn out, the bed rock hard, the bathroom outdated, etc... The location is pretty drab and not convenient, unless if you want to be close to the airport. In that context it was a bit to my surprise that the food was reasonably good, but I guess it is hard to go wrong in Sicily? Undoubtedly there must be nicer and happier places to stay in or near Catania, regardless of budget. I can't recommend this to anyone.
In plus: - nice rooms with terraces at quite side of the building - Great room, reception, restaurant service - close to the Beach - its a pity the swimming pool is closed and Beach not clean in early May - but that was known before so no complaints. However the season could be started a little bit earlier as there is already a great weather :) Anyway I can imagine how nice it would be when season starts as I have seen how the beach cleaning was progressing.
I think the best palce in Catania. You have a beach and a 2km to Center and 2km to Airport. Everything what you want and a nice Hotel of course. Very good Bad, Staff etc. On May the 1st there is a Music Festival on the beach. Nice time !!!
