눇Exceptional SERVICE!!! The whole team/staff was the best of all the cities we visited in Sicily! Everyone was friendly, helpful, personal yet professional. This place is truly a little gem! Surrounded by nature, gorgeous cacti and other greens, the rooms are modern with contemporary decor, it's clean and comfortable, the place is peaceful, beautiful, extremely relaxing and has a small private veranda where you can have a romantic apertivo or take your morning coffee! There is a very lovely pool, breakfast is always nice, good little collection of DVD's (thanks Caroline), free wifi and free parking! Great location...we recommend having a car, which made getting around easy...places we wanted to visit were close by or not too far away from the hotel and we didn't have a problem going around. They were also really cool and sweet with our small dog that we brought along on our vacation! Dining at their restaurant, "Zafferano" under chef Domenico di Bari is an ABSOLUTE MUST!!! He takes culinary composition and creation to a whole new level! Definitely one of the best plates/ meals/ dishes we've had...and just an excellent experience. Wonderful wine pairing as well! Oh and the best panna cotta we've ever had!!! We ate there 5 nights!!! Perfect place to come back to after a long day of going around and sightseeing, or after the beach! Actually, also to just stay there the whole day...swim, layout, eat, relax, read a book and chill out...which we did. We stayed here for a full week and really enjoyed this place! We will definitely be coming back! Everything was wonderful!
