This hotel is a little oasis in busy Giarre. The room we had was clean and comfortable and the hotel is set amongst lots of greenery and very pleasant to be in. Breakfast was lovely with lots of choice and the dinners were good too. The best thing about the hotel is the staff. Everyone, the cleaning ladies, waiters and waitresses and reception staff were efficient, professional and friendly. I was poorly for the last few days and they did everything they could to help me. They really know about customer service.

Good hotel overall: strong points were location, help with Etna Excursion, and most of all the restaurant staff - we had dinner at the hotel on all four nights. Check-In was also very good and housekeeping was efficient.

Areas for improvement would be Check-Out - which could be better organised, and Wi-Fi - which was a bit weak.

It's a simple place considering that Etna is a relatively small town. Have stayed at many hotels in my several months trip to the US but never stayed in one that smelled so fresh as this hotel. It was a simple room but everything was clean and well kept.
Hotel manager was available all the time if needed and was kind to send me by car to the trail head where I wanted to hike on. Amazing place, friendly and most of all - Clean. I really enjoyed my stay and highly recommend the place. There are not so many rooms so advance booking is useful.

This hotel is located on the edge of Giarre which in itself is not worth a visit. Our room (205) was excellent: big, airy and with amazing views that could be enjoyed from a private balcony with seating. The only downside was the shower but we got used to that after a few days and it didnt bother us particularly much. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and could be consumed in a lovely courtyard. The pool was big and had lots of loungers available. The pool and the pool area (2 shower cubicles and toilets) were cleaned thoroughly every morning. The only downside is its location but if you have a car then you can drive to Taormina (30mins) Siracusa (1hrs15mins) Bronte (1hrs) etc. We discovered a lovely beach abt 15mins drive away :spiaggia di San Marco towards Giardini Naxos (too crowded and built up for our liking). The restaurant next door was another gem. Lovely food and wine at very competitive prices in a lovely setting. The staff and cleanliness is definitely the hotel's forte. Would definitely recommend especially room 205.

My wife and two children (9 and 17) spent a week at the hotel in mid-July and enjoyed it immensely. It's an old winery that has been sympathetically converted, with lots of character but including expected mod cons like air conditioning (which works really well in the rooms, which were cool despite 30°C-plus temperatures). The kids would have spent all day, every day at the pool if we'd let them – there's a lovely shaded area to sit, along with the usual sun loungers, and you can enjoy a tasty lunch from the poolside cabin. The on-site restaurant (under separate ownership) serves excellent food at reasonable prices – try the swordfish with almonds, delicious! It was my daughter's 17th birthday on our last night and they organised a special cake which made her night! The hotel also provided a free taxi to a local pizzeria with a lovely garden. So we rarely ate elsewhere. The greatest thing about Hotel Etna, though, is the staff, who are incredibly helpful. We were unfortunate enough to have a crash in our hire car and the staff were unbelievably sympathetic and gave as much practical assistance as they possibly could when it came to getting us through a stressful situation. And a few more days relaxing around the pool certainly helped! Thank you all so much for making our holiday truly memorable.
