Beautiful property of course I can’t imagine anyone disagreeing with that! Definitely a snobbish Vibe I prefer humble down to earth. If you’re going for the food don’t bother it was just OK, at breakfast I was asked not to have my cappuccino and a piece of toast on the outside patio, was told I had to sit inside at a table it was bizarre and make me feel uncomfortable.

This place is absolute gold - A converted farm in the middle of the peaceful, beautiful Noto valley. Especially worthy of mention is the in-house restaurant, commanded beautifully by the Head Waiter, Francesco. Fluent in (at least) 3 lanuages, 'cesco was always happy to guide us idiot Australians through the menu and wine selections - his recommendations were always flawless, as was his service and friendliness. It is professionalism like this that makes 'good' holidays great - So, thank you to Francesco and his whole team :)

A beautiful retreat in the mountains above the seaside. This lovely hotel has an enormous swimming pool which we enjoyed thoroughly. The food and bar service there makes it even more delightful. It is a magnificent place from which to use as a base when visiting other locations in the area. The rooms were spacious and relaxing. The restaurant onsite is both delicious and creative. Highly recommended for family and friends but would be a wonderfully romantic place as well. They set out a large TV at the pool so we could watch Italy play football in the evening. The staff was so attentive and accommodating. Look forward to a future visit.

We stayed at Masseria della Volpe in the Summer of 2019. As with many other guests, we were delighted by the beauty of the property. It gives a glorious first impression of luxury, and quality. However, we had some meaningful disappointments others ought to know about. First, our first room on the ground floor had a notable musty odor. We thought it must be the air conditioning vents. But, no. We were told by hotel staff and management that this was not an actual dampness issue, but was caused by the type of stone the hotel used for the flooring in a certain set of rooms. "It has been a problem since they were installed," we were told. Honestly, though we still have our doubts as to the explanation's accuracy, this answer was almost even more distressing. If true, it meant the hotel continues to book travelers into rooms with known and unavoidable unpleasant odors without warning or informing them. If the stone tiles really do give off such an oder, and if the hotel is well aware of it, I'd want to know before I booked such a room, with none others available to move to. And I'd want to ask why they don't replace flooring that's been known to be a problem for some time. Even more distressing was when the air conditioning in our room suddenly stopped functioning on a blisteringly hot evening. The temperature was very high, unbearable for just about anyone, but especially concerning as our daughter must wear a hard plastic back brace for scoliosis. We endured from 8 pm until after midnight, during which time we were assured constant communication was occurring between the Masseria and the "central control" in Milan, from which all computerized functions had to be controlled. This system made little logical sense to us, and even less sense when the night manager who told us he was "in constant contact" was then located drinking wine leisurely on the veranda. Upon more complaints he summoned the hotel's General Manager to the property as midnight approached. We were exhausted, but unable to go to sleep (and our daughter was unable to wear her brace). After going through his own thorough search of the property for solutions (why, if everything is controlled from Milan?), he finally, after midnight, came into our room, removed one piece of artwork from the wall, opened the circuit breaker panel behind it, and reset the tripped fuse. I MEAN! The simplest solution appeared to be the last one attempted, after four hours of waiting. If anyone had let me know the breaker panel was located behind that painting, I could have reset the breaker myself, four hours earlier! And all the "constant contact with Milan" nonsense? The fact is, we were casually lied to over the course of a four hour period, while we suffered in stifling mid-summer heat, and while employees and management went about their thoroughly backward troubleshooting, before finally attempting the most simple, basic, and successful fix. Were we offered any discount from the highest rates charged in the region? A free meal at the property's extraordinarily expensive restaurant? A single cocktail, to help offset the discomforts imposed? None of the above, and not a single thing else. Just a brief and casual apology for the inconvenience, but not even an acknowledgement of the completely fabricated "Milan" stories told to us. So, yes, the property is quite beautiful, and has a very unusual level of apparent physical sophistication for the immediate region. But, as in much of Italy, travelers who are used to an accompanying level of competence, customer service, or even mere honesty, must accept the risk of being severely disappointed by their absence. By all means visit Sicily! Whether the cost of this particular property is justified by the method of management is questionable to us.

Dear Ethan, I am really sorry that your visit to Italy has resulted in your conclusion that in much of the country travelers must accept the risk of having the absence of an accomanying level of competence and customer service. Being the foreigner in Italy, I would humbly disagree with such affirmation which actually depreciates efforts of the whole country's hospitality industry. Referring to your complains I would like to clarify the following. 1. The odor you described is a smell of the local flooring stone called "Pece" or asphaltic stone. As every natural material this stone has its discreet scent being not richer than a rotang furniture or a wooden floor. Frankly speaking, this natural flooring exists since the hotel's opening and for all these 5 years we didn't have any issues with our guests. 2.Air conditioning in your room didn't work for a couple of hours. Following the establiched procedure, the night stuff tried to make a restart through the service center in Milan which controls all our electronic systems (what is not a nonsense but the matter of fact for our sructure). After due consultancy with the service center we were ordered to reset the local system in the room. I am sorry that you didn't consider apologizes expressed by the hotel manager, who specially drove to the hotel from his home to manage this issue, as being not enough. Kind regards, Andrey, joint owner

Hotel: beautiful building, looks like new. Nice surrounding with olive trees. You should go to this hotel for rest. If you want some life, you shouldn't be here. The room gave us mixed feelings: the deluxe room was spacious and had looked amazing, however no windows ! The standard room was quite small, and only a window in the bathroom. You only receive one Complimentary bottle of water on the first day, And they do not replace the shower gel if it is not empty. For this price class one expects better. Rooms are always clean. They have a flies problem. When you sit at the pool, you are constantly fighting flies. Really annoying. Staff could be better. They speak almost no English, and are not up to the standards of the hotel. You get your hi and bye but they will not go the extra mile you’d expect. Poolboy is cleaning the pool all the time during the day. He should speed up. Bartender is slow, doesn’t know the snack menu and it has only 10 items, of which the burgers where not available. Breakfast: it was corona time so no buffet. You had to order each day one day in advance online. We always missed items we ordered. Breakfast overall was limited but Ok, but far from spectacular. Omelet will set you back another 6€. This hotel has all the possibilities to get 10/10 but it looks like they lost connection with the customer. Don’t get me wrong, it is still great, but for the price they ask, they need to step up.

Dear Guest, we really appreciate your feedback and we thank you for your time on sharing with us your review. Our Luxury Eco Resort is a relaxing - charm boutique Hotel situated in the middle of the nature in our beutiful Val di Noto in order to stay away from the crowdy city traffic. If you are looking for fun, the area is surrounded by many options and places to visit, easy to reach. Regarding your comment about rooms amenities, we are proud to be enviromental friendly, we follow our policy as Eco Resort. Unfortunately, we try our best to keep flies away with no chemical products, We regret to say that we can't fight the nature arond us. We are very sorry regarding your disappointing experience at the pool bar with our Team, we do our best to keep the areas always nice, tidy and clean especially after the hard time and the new disinfection policy. This actually takes more time to make sure all is sanitized and safe for our guests. Also, all of us speak different languages, especially English which is important to communicate with most of our guests. We are very sorry if none of us went an extra mile for you. We will make sure this will not happen again. Breakfast: following the new procedures we are trying to adapt ourselves to this situation which is not easy either for us and for our guests. We believe we have many options available, the only annoying part is the pre booking which takes time especially when you are more than 2 persons. However, we really thank you for your feedback, We wil discuss in order to improve our service and make sure we provide the best we can do. It has been a hard time for everyone and what it's important for us, it's to make sure Our Guest will leave with nice memories and enjoyed the time spent here after this awful, unexpected situation. We really hope to see you soon again, we will make our best to improve and to take your feedback as positive comment to do better. Kind Regards, Noemi

We had two lovely nights here. The rooms are very comfortable with excellent Ortigia toiletries. The restaurant meals were delicious and the staff were thoughtful and helpful. We also had very good massages on a wet afternoon. This is a lovely place to stay to balance our the busyness of staying in towns in Sicily.

We enjoyed two nights at Masseria Della Volpe earlier this month. The drive to the property from Noto was beautiful. You can tell a lot of love went into the creation of this property. Our favorite parts: - Just enjoying being outdoors and enjoying the overall ambiance - we had done some pretty involved "touristing" in the days leading up to this stay so it was a very welcome rest. - The staff was extremely helpful / all spoke excellent English - My husband and I had the best massages of our lives in the spa - Riding our bikes around the grounds / through the orchards, playing a pickup game of tennis on the grounds We found the restaurant quite good, actually, contrary to other reviews. Yes it is "resort pricing" but you are in fact at a resort so this is to be expected. As other reviewers have mentioned, the flies are a problem pretty much everywhere on the property, unfortunately. I know this sounds extreme but I would recommend bringing a fly swatter or would recommend the property provide these.

Very high quality design and layout like top hotels in Mauritius The gardens are tasteful mix of palms olives and various flowering shrubs and plants all immaculately tended Easy to reach from Catania airport straight down the autostrada in about an hour Reception manned 24hrs by intelligent helpful staff. Suite beautifully appointed bedroom/bathroom upstairs and sitting room bathroom downstairs. Lighting with clever intuitive touch pads. Very comfortable beds and soft furnishings. quality of finish excellent. The main restaurant has inside and outside seating overlooking pool. Charming attentive and relaxed staff with no stuffy pretensions, making for much more relaxed and enjoyable time . Food superb quality - just left choice of local wines to waiters. Pool very good size and plenty of loungers seating etc in well maintained garden. Pool side bar indoor fitness and tennis court. Some oldish bikes on site fine for short cycle to beaches- more serious cyclists would want to hire outside. short hop to Ragusa Noto and Syracuse, longer haul for Valley of temples but its the s115 all the way. The immediate countryside is gently rolling and pleasant but pretty close by the plastic covered fruit and veg farms start leading down to the coast. countryside looks much nicer inland from Rosoline and three of Sicily's prettiest villages/small towns are about 40-60 mins inland . I really liked this hotel even though it rained for our entire stay.
