    I would have expected a bit more from the breakfast (more choice, more variety more local products including ham, cheese and fruits as well as jam) as well as a bit more cleaned rooms

    The place is great: olive trees, pool, green gardens, nice rooms, nice terrace to enjoy breakfast

    Beautiful place, but the experience was not what we had hoped for.
    • Leisure trip
    • Group
    • Double or Twin Room
    • Stayed 2 nights

    - First thing upon arrival was to be told we can't have dinner (no reservation) & to be send to a Pizzeria 5km away. - The bar (if you can even name it a bar) and recreation room has no atmosphere at all, it's relatively dark and not cosy. - Breakfast ok, but not great. The best were the tasty local tomatoes. There was only one sort of bread, which had no taste. The cheese was dry/appeared old. (If you have a sweet tooth > there was a lot of choice to be fair) Part of the buffet was 'empty' on both days and only refilled upon request. In my opinion due to lack of service staff. - Having to pay for a pool towel (3€) - The minibar included 2 small bottles of water (sparkling and non-sparkling) > which were payable as well To sum it up, the service / experience leaves lots of room for improvement. We didn't feel like in a 4* hotel, but more like in an airbnb with uninterested hosts.

    The property is really nice and clean. The rooms are small but clean and nice. (Issue > the place lives or dies with the weather. There is no comfortable area to spend time when it rains or it's cold outside) Late check out was possible, prolonged from 11 to 12.

    A bit penny pinching to charge for a small bottle of water in the room. And for all the facilities such as tennis, bikes, bowls etc. No kettle and tea/coffee making facilities in room. They certainly make it clear they want you to spend, spend, spend!

    Because it was low season there was no fee charged for the tennis court but we think it’s quite expensive if you do need to pay (12€ p/h). It’s a quite large accomodation, about 50 rooms, which makes it a bit commercial (in high season payment for every activity, for towels at the pool, you have to book the restaurant in advance, big groups that have classes in the garden). Mostly elderly guests. Besides, the breakfast is until 10.00 but the staff started to take away the breakfast around 9.30, which made us feel a little unwelcome at breakfast.

    We stayed for 5 nights at Masseria degli Ulivi. The accomodation is well located nearby Syracuse and beautiful Noto, and one hour drive to Modica and Ragusa. The accomodation has a nice swimmingpool and tennis court/table tennis table. Very nice views of the surrounding. The room was very convenient, nice bed and bathroom, beautiful views.

    This is not an "adult only" place so when children playing around the pool, this starts to be noisy unfortunately if you just want to relax. The breakfast at 9:30am was alteady almost empty. The Spa (3 pools outside during a max of an hour) has nothing really amazing.

    Strangely uncomfortable deckchairs and hard iron cushionless seats in the restaurant. Also odd second heated pool fenced off in the garden which cost extra to use, so nobody did.

    Bedrooms simple clean and white. Nice garden and lovely pool. Delicious food at dinner time and nice terrace - could eat there every night. Great location to visit and escape from the heat of noto. V close to noto antica too which is worth a visit.

    • Stayed 3 nights

    Breakfast could have done with a bit more savoury selection and the showers need to be fixed to allow hot water in the morning.

    We booked a twin room and by the time we arrived, the hotel had booked us into a double room. They remedied to this within an hour, whilst we were having dinner. The room was really good, the bathroom was the only "problem" as I never managed to get hot water in the shower. It was always lukewarm which was a pity as the nights can be a bit chilly in May and I could have done with a hot shower. The bathroom was a wet-room and it got flooded quite easily. We had dinner 3 times on site: the menu is nice: roasted vegetables, pasta with pesto, sea bass with mash potatoes were definitely my favourites, I would ignore the stuffed calamari. Breakfast was great if you love bread and cakes/croissants. There was a small table of savoury things but I wish there had been a greater selection on that table. The staff was very nice and helpful.

    Wonderful agritourism location; great greenery, pool, olive trees all around, great restaurant. Immersed in nature, only 10 km from lovely Noto city and 40 km from Syracusa. Amazing atmosphere - in the evening it's perfectly quiet, one can hear only the cicadas and birds; few places offer such sensations while keeping all modern amenities one may need.

    • Stayed 3 nights

    - A bit warm in the room, and air conditioning could not be controlled (centralized). - "Managed as a business" place: very nice everything, but have seen better value for money (excellent restaurant, but a bit overpriced compared to local standards, add to pay extra for tennis, etc), and very large B&B (number of rooms). This is an hotel or a "holidays club" , not really a B&B. A matter of preference, of course, but I tend to prefer smaller and more typical places. - OK for families, but noisy when you are looking for calm: numerous kids, sometimes overlooked by their parents: swimming pool can be very noisy.

    + Excellent location + Beautiful garden and swimming pool. + Room was nice as well + Friendly staff (could speak english and french, which is rarely the case in Sicilia).
