The hotel is located far from everything and you'll need a car to get around. It is a very nice clean and modern place. The salt water pool is very nice and you have direct access to the sea (rocky with stairs). Rooms are very comfortable and clean, so are the facilities. The staff is very nice and helpfull. The...

Totally different from all other properties in the area since it stands by the sea and is surrounded by a beautiful estate that offers the sense of absolute peace and privacy. Nothing similar to other hotels in the area. Even-though the hotel is build by the sea I have to mention...

Santa Tecla Palace Hotel was the best choice we could have made for our first visit in Sicily and the area of Catania. The very first impression while approaching the hotel from above the main street was just so great since we did not expect to find an estate but just a standard 4 stars hotel like the others we...
