        I checked in a 2am, and it was no problem. Breakfast on a patio was also very pleasant.

        hotel website offered shuttles to airport if pre-booked. I requested when I made the booking - but as it turned out, no shuttles on sunday ! Why ? Taxi to airport was 30 Euro (not 20 as the hotel told me it would be). Swimming pool looked lovely , but didnt open until 10am...useless for a quick overnight stay and 10am departure

        Coming from airport, the signs for the hotel were good, which is rare in Sicily. Everything supplied in the way of toiletries in case you had forgotten anything. Good for a stop over.

        If staying longer than a night, to access the beach you have to cross a busy road.

        The thought that I would soon be leaving

        Bahtroom not clean & fixtures falling to bits, pool only open after 10am so not able to use if leaving after an overnight stay. Also booked a taxi through hotel reception to the airport, the taxi overcharged (reception should only use a taxi service that does not overcharge)

        The proximity to the airport was wonderful for an early morning departure. The menu, service and food in the restaurant was definitely above grade for a business hotel.

        I find the hotel totally inflexible. Several weeks prior to departure, we were in need of changing our reservation by one day, they refused to move the reservation, and stated that we would be charged the total cost of the room as a cancellation fee. We were not cancelling, we were simply trying to move the reservation by one day! While the hotel touts a shuttle service to and from the airport, they refused to pick me up from the airport after leaving my rental car. The distance according to my gps was 1mile which cost me 20 euros to hire a cab. The cabbies in Catania are unethical to say the least and have some sort of relationship with the hotels where they can charge this outrageous fee for a 1 mile trip. This facility also claims to have a private beach... The truth is, that it is across a 4 lane road and the beach is filthy.

        The hotel advertise free shuttle to the airport, which is partially true. Upon arrival I was told the shuttle does not work on Sundays, on Tuesday when I was leaving, I wanted to book the shuttle for mid day and I was told it only works between 6 and 8 am only. Needless to say I was frustrated as that was the main reason I stayed there.

        The staff were wonderful and most helpful. The accommodations were comfortable and very clean. The food was exceptional.

        The room faced a construction site. Although there was not any loud noise associated with this - the view itself was not relaxing. However, even having said that the hotel was really suited for buisness travelers and having to travel much in my work - I found the hotel to be exceptionally comfortable and inviting.

        The airport pick up and drop off service was good.

        The food in the restaurant was not very good and neither was the breakfast. I expected better food for the money I spent.

        The breakfast was good and the environment quiet.

        We were surprised that the hotel was advertised as an airport hotel and that it had a shuttle service. On reaching Catania airport there was no sign of the shuttle stop and the taxi cost € 30 denoting the actual distance from the airport. In the morning we had to leave by 0800 hours for a plane to Rome leaving after 1100 hours. The reason being that the shuttle had to go to the town and industrial area from 0830 hours for the next two hours. This is hardly a regular airport shuttle and should not be advertised as such.

        Close to airport. We arrived late on Friday (11.30 pm) for a family event the day after in Ragusa and were well received and attended.

        Noisyness if your neighbours decide to smoke & chat on the balcony at 4 am... Had to leave very early on Sunday (5.15 am) and no coffee available whatsoever...

        Very good value for money, convenient location for the airport, and lovely pool.

        The restaurant and pool menus were restricted - more choice would be good. The reception staff were not as friendly as I would have expected, but the restaurant and pool staff were great.

        Hotel was clean and comfortable and generally no complaints regarding facilities or room.

        Some of the staff did not seem very genuine / honest in their recommendations. One of them tried to recommend us to take a taxi to Taormina and we were sold a pretty different story to what he communicated to the taxi driver on our expectations of the trip, which ended up being a big rip off, so just beware of the advice provided.
