    It would have been better if we would have had a dishwasher in the kitchenette.

    We liked the cleanliness, the pool too is kept clean, the friendly staff, the view from the terrace.

    Accomodation in Kamena Residence was by far one of the best we´ve ever been in. Nice appartement with huge terrace and most beautiful view on Mediterranean Sea and also the pool. We´re really happy to spent our short holiday here. Staff was great, pool is amazing (they clean it every day) and there is nice small pizzera/restaurant in the pool area opened till the late evening. We´ll come back because there is so much to see in Sicily :) Thank you!

    Only small complaint was the bed might need to be changed..... could feel springs in parts

    The complex is very nice, clean and very safe. All the staff were very friendly and professional. The coffee bar upstairs very friendly and helpful staff. The pool has a lifeguard on duty at all times. The food and staff in the bar/restaurant could not have been better. Facilities all around 10/10 Kamena we will see you again.

    No welcome pack. Pool available for community use resulting in limited access for sun beds etc. Other facilities were also targeting local community e.g. Cafe, keep fit, children's club etc. This needs to be spelt out in in promotional material. Security was non existent as anyone could walk onto complex. Noise from local road.

    Staff were friendly and helpful. Apartment was spacious and comfortable. Good car parking. Easy access to restaurants and central area.

    Almost everything. 1) Staff were unhelpful; no wifi provided till we went back. No info on local area. Didnt offer to help with bags as we struggled down to apartment from reception with them just waking ahead. 2) Beds are extremely, extremely uncomfortable. 3) SWIMMING POOL; this is not just for hotel guests. There is a constant swarm of other people that they seemingly charge to come there for kids classes and the like (you have to take a card to show you're staying at the hotel). Doesn't create a very relaxed atmosphere. Also means that you occasionally can't find parking at the hotel due to these visitors. 4) location of the hotel is good, as in walkable to town, however it's the worst town we visited in this part of Sicily. There are plenty of other towns you should consider first unless you're after generic food, a crowded beach and cheap nightlife.

    • Two-Bedroom Apartment (3 Adults)
    • Stayed 11 nights

    The Kamena residence is essentially a local public facility catering for Birthday parties, Kids summer camps and swimming lessons. As a holiday resident i feel you are treated as a second class citizen. Over 11 days the apartment's linen or towels were not changed once. Even the most basic holiday apartment this would happen. Yes there is a washing machine, but for the price paid you should have better cleaning.

    The apartment was spacious and the pool was excellent. The location was close to the resort centre.

    • Two-Bedroom Apartment (2 Adults)

    Lots of basics missing like a teatowel. All other places we've visited that cost less have had a teatowel and cleaning cloth and a bit of coffee and bottle of water to welcome you. The hob wasn't working as no spark to the gas, the oven didn't have symbols left to show what function it was on, no washing machine even though it was described as having one. TV didn't work. Shower only stayed hot for 10 minutes so one of us always had to have a cold wash, if there were 6 people staying it'd be a nightmare. No extra loo roll, no daily cleaning. Doors difficult to open and close and should really be fixed. Pool bar closed for the Summer. Had to pay in cash as no till roll left. Lots of small details that made us feel like the season was well and truly over, the place feels quite tired. A few small small changes and it would be a great place to stay.

    The size and layout of the apartment was good with enough room to sleep 6. The pool area looked lovely.

    Pizzaria was closed for September. Walking back from beach/ restaurants is all uphill so tough (but worth it!) With buggy! Scalding water came out of taps on several occasions so be careful and electricity blew a few times.No baths, just showers in apartments.

    Great size apartments. Ground floor perfect for small kids. Garden in shade most of the day. We were there in September and had pool almost entirely to ourselves. Walking distance from beach, shops and restaurants. Cafe upstairs nice for morning coffee with lovely views.
