Great location if staying for a week or more.
The view from the room was amazing. However for just a one night stay to visit Siracusa and Ortiga it is very pricy. This is a resort hotel with two beaches so it is really more the destination. With this said, the staff was absolutely wonderful and the dinner and breakfast equally wonderful. Would stay again but would plan for a week or so as a "resort vacation"

Beach resort 15 minutes from everything
This resort is off the beaten track (15 minute drive to Ortgia or Syracuse) but a great place to hang when you’re not taking in the sights. Unfortunately it rained so we couldn’t take advantage of the magnificent beach or rocky outposts you can swim from with beach chairs to hang out on. But, the gym was available to use instead! Restaurant on the grounds was delicious as we didn’t want to trek out again after returning from Ortgia for a rest.

Good 6.0
Beautiful place, with great views and nice pool area. Mostly friendly staff. Average room and breakfast. The place had many private wedding parties which limited your access to dinner area and other places.
