I enjoyed only the terrace of this nice hotel, just to drink a coffee in the sunset. It was really but very expensive.

We just popped in for sundowners on the terrace. It's expensive, but the service is impeccable and the view across the Mediterranean with Mount Etna smoking to herself in the distance is unbeatable. Worth it for a treat!
