      Individual guest reviews

      • Family with children
        6.2

        Nice relaxing atmosphere. Enjoyed the fitness offer and beauty treatment at the hotel. Nice location as starting point for getting around by car for excursions north and south.

        Breakfast buffet didn't really meet expectations, even running out of supply for essential ingredients several days. As the hotel has a business center you would expect proper internet connection. Disappointment as only very unstable and limited service was available. The room appeared rather old, particular the bathroom.

      • Family with children
        5.0

        Great pool and beach. Nice room and facilities.

        Very poor wi-fi service! 1/2 hour free per day is ridiculous at these prices, and having to line up to get a voucher and pay each time was equally annoying. The staff were competent, but like many in sicily, some were good and friendly but some were very unfriendly. They made you feel they were doing you a favour, even though we were always polite and tried to use our best (although poor) italian. A smile or two would go a long way with confused travellers.The restaurant was good but very expensive (20E for breakfast). On the whole lots of little things (lights, TV, bathtub etc. etc) didn't work, hand looked like they had been broken for many months.

      • Family with children
        7.8

        Good services and friendly personel. Complete and very good breakfast. Nice swimming pool and own beach area (rocks). Price/quality was good. Can advise hotel. Own parking garage which is needed.

        Very busy surrounding. Car must be parked in parking garage of hotel. Hotel is nice but design is a littlebit outdated.

      • Couple
        5.0

        This hotel needs a serious renovation, it is very old, our bathroom dated from the 70'S.

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        Good location, although quite a distance from Catania itself.Free shuttle bus was beneficial. Reception staff were the hotel's greatest asset, multi-lingual, diplomatic, extremely helpful, friendly without going over the top. Good selection of food at breakfast. A few local restaurants nearby offering good seafood etc.

        Taxi from Catania was 40 euros. First room allocated was dirty- not on the surface, but the paintwork, doors, balcony windows were grubby and even after a second cleaning it still was not of the standard expected, so we changed rooms and this was better. Breakfast coffee was always luke warm and weak.

      • Couple
        10.0

        Very friendly attentive staff and thoughtful. Very peaceful and relaxing atmosphere with lovely restaurant and excellent food. Modern feel. Good facilities. Great breakfast.

        The only thing that we were disappointed with was that the pay tv did not work in the hotel. The only English speaking channels were news channels with no other English speaking options and after choosing this hotel because of the Pay TV we were disappointed that it was not available for the last 5 days of our trip.

      • Family with children
        8.2

        Swimming in the sea and in the pool; eating breakfast outside (open air), garage for our vehicle,

      • Couple
        6.6

        Located near sea and private access. Not a snady beach, but a wooden terrace on the rocks with access to the sea by stair. Swimming pool was nice, as well as breakfast. Wasn't always refilled in time, but enough variaty and staff is willing to serve. Nice restaurant (good pizzeria) across the road. Good value for money.

        Not really close to city center. Taxi costs about 20 Euro (don't go by meter, arrange fixed price) and hotel shuttle leaves city center at 20:00, which is too early. Night life starts at 21:00, when people start with apertizer and dinner. Not much to do in the evening around hotel. Business (conference center) oriented.

      • Family with children
        3.2

        Poor reception, poor breakfast, no bus, no taxi, no hot water. Staff made money from your day trip.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Nice comfortable hotel and good breakfast.

        Quiet area too far from city centre, very little happening in the evening!

      • Couple
        7.8

        The breakfast was huge. The rooms were really nice and comfortable. 30 minutes free internet. bus stop is right in front of the hotel. good view of the sea.

        From the main station you have to take two separate buses to get there and it is a little out of the way. the hotel was expensive.

      • Group of friends

        Rooms, Lobby and breakfast

        No Free Internet Hot spot and it would be nice if parking at the hotel was included with the stay

      • Family with children
        7.4

        Special mention to reception who helped me sort out a wrong booking which ended up in no-show not being charged. Thanks alot

        heating was very high and impossible to lower from room

      • Couple
        10.0

        The facility is well kept and there are a couple of restaurants across the facility that are pretty good. I loved the breakfast buffet at the hotel...yum!!

        I did not like the fact that you have to pay for the wireless access to the Internet....some facilities offer that to their customers included in the reservation...other than that everything else was very good :)

      • Couple
        5.8

        Large buffet breakfast, daily shuttles to Catania city centre and rooms had a slight view of the seaside.

        Directions on Sheraton Hotel website are not so good and the local bus system is confusing (better to take a taxi to the hotel). There are no laundromats for travelers nearby, you need to travel to the city centre for this. Also the hotel restaurant doesn't open till 8pm.
