Great Place to Stay
Great resort. Staff is super nice, food is good, super clean. We had a great time. Downsides are the wi fi, just available in the common areas, frigo bar did not work until we found out that the door of the wardrobe has to be open for making it work and our telephone was broken. Nevertheless I have to say that overall great experience.

Nice family friendly resort close to the beach
I am from Siracusa and I consider this resort the best choice, especially if you are a family with children. It has 2 big swimming pools (not including the one of the spa), a gym and equipments for children. A little "train" will bring you at the Arenella beach that I consider the best beach of Siracusa if you like sand. Another option is to let the train leave you at the solarium (amazing) if you would like to avoid sand but I advice this just without children or at least not the little ones. Staff is friendly. Area of improvement: the little train is almost always full. Though is passing every 5 minutes sometimes happened to me to be obliged to go walking to avoid remaining waiting in the hot.

A great base for visiting SE Sicily
We chose Arenella primarily because it is well-placed for visiting interesting places in the South East corner of Sicily, notably the Baroque towns, Syracuse and Mount Etna. But we also spent plenty of time by the pools or at the beach which (in June at least) are not crowded or noisy - very relaxing.

Very good hotel, but far from the beach...
The photos in let us think the beach is very close to the hotel, but it's not. You have to walk from 500 m to 1 km to reach it. Anyway, they have a truck that can bring you there. Internet costs 10 EUR for 24 hour and does not work in the room, only in the reception. The hotel very good, has everything you need, but is 10 km from Siracusa. You'll need a car.
