Great place with great beaches, yes, it has two beaches. Excellent in every respect. The first line sea view suite with balcony is perfect choice.
It is perfect already. Hard to say whether there is need to improve on anything.
Breakfast, rock and sand beach facilities And jacuzzi. Amazing landscape!
No free shuttle to Ortigia (boat)
The grounds are amazing, 2 beautiful beaches and the main manager Sergio was also Great. Also the doorbell that help us was very nice. We had some issues at check in and he went above and beyond to help us and make our stay great.
Most of the personal has not the service actitud that the manager has. There are no towels at the beaches and or pools you wait for ever to get them and they still never get there. It Is also very important to know if you make reservations and you have children that the rooms could be far away from each other including street crossings in between. Make sure to book a Village if you go with family. My husband got stung by a sea urchin and they did not have good instruments to take the thorns out there are also no sings on the rocky beach letting you know there are sea urchins and we did not know there were.
Located on a headland opposite the city if Siracusa, the views are beautiful. There is a private beach in a quiet cove that’s perfect for swimming in the sea. This resort is ideal to relax by the pool or by the sea.
It is a little isolated - you need a car! - and that means you’re dependent on the restaurants on site for food. Food choices are ok but after a day or two feels limited. (That said, the outdoor restaurant that overlooks the sea is good and there was a buffet one evening we were there that was great)
This is not a 5 star hotel! The beach was dirty. Wifi is bad.
