We traveled by car in Sicily and hotel's location was good for it. We didn't use any spa or resort facilities. The room was ok, but the sound from the next rooms was very annoying. We asked to replace our room because of baby crying during all nights next to it, but the front desk didn't bother to do it...

Rather tired and the staff are pretty grim too. The place needs a serious upgrade. The rooms are ok but could do with an upgrade. Breakfast was a miserable affair with barely warm scrambled egg and a poor selection of fruit and cakes. Theres no reason to stay here apart from the golf course which is also not the best,...

There was nothing that I missed or thought was incomplete about my stay in Il Picciolo Etna Golf Resort & Spa. If I must try to find something to comment about that I did not regard as absolutely perfect, it must have been the food. I paid full board, and received three courses for each mea, which was nice. However,...

We booked our holiday to include golf. I emailed the golf secretary who booked us in for 2 9 hole rounds. If you are staying at the hotel then the 50 Euro 9 hole round becomes 35 euro..but none of this was communicated. The course is lovely and pretty well maintained. If it is hot would suggest hiring a buggy....

Stayed for 3 nights in August 2014. Hotel is actually closer to Linguaglossa than to Castiglione di Sicilia – if you’re arriving on the SS120 from Linguaglossa, ignore the sign to Castiglione di Sicilia, Taormina, … and proceed for about 1 km further, and hotel will be to your left; you can’t miss the wide entrance.

I recommend this place for couples who want to have restful holidays. The hotel is very good, staff is nice, and rooms are very cosy.
