Having had the pleasure of staying in other 5*/5* Deluxe hotels, this is certainly not 5* Deluxe as classified. The restaurant is dated and the service we experienced was poor(45 minutes to take our dinner order!). The food was adequate but the choice at breakfast was slightly limited(we did not expect canned peaches in a 5* Deluxe hotel). Our room...

Good location overlooking the bay to Ortigia, but no restaurants or shops within easy walking distance. The hotel offers a free mini bus service into Ortigia but book ahead, since only 8 seats. Trips am and pm with pick up 5 hours later. Taxis cost us 25 - 29 euro each way. Excellent facilities and very helpful staff. Restaurant adequate...

This hotel is at the far end of a quite road. It has 2 beaches and lovely public rooms. The food is good. But the sleeping rooms are a disaster. A suite has a small sitting area.

Our stay here is too short, only two nights. There is much to do here with swimming in the sea or pool, massages and just relaxing. The view of Siracusa from here is excellent and it is only a 20 minute drive to the city. The rooms are very comfortable and many have views of the sea and the city.
