    Wonderful place if you are looking for a quiet hotel at a remote location. We enjoyed very much the peaceful atmosphere. The hotel is very well looked after and surrounded by a beautifully designed garden. The food was also very good - breakfast as well as lunch and dinner at the restaurant.

    Tricky to find. We had a suite which was fine but it would take a very small effort (rearrange the furniture a bit, add a couple more lamps, maybe add a rug) to make it a much more welcoming space.

    Overall a very nice property. Small and quiet, reasonably comfortable suite. Highlight is the food at dinner (breakfast is nothing special).

    The bed! It was most uncomfortable, which is not acceptable for the price you pay. We didn't sleep properly for the duration of our stay here. Also it's worth knowing there are no lifts to the rooms upstairs. This was not too much of an issue for us, but might be for others.

    Beautiful property, great pool and lovely food. Staff were extremely helpful. The room was great with beautiful views

    breakfasts very nice and simple plenty of coffee to order and nice cakes. Perhaps expanding the choice on breakfasts with more cooked food and more prepared fresh fruit would be good just a constructive suggestion nit criticism as this hotel is perfect! The area the hotel is in is a bit scruffy but this is common is Sicily.The hotel is a haven of fine accommodation and food

    This is a beautiful hotel.The staff are outstanding.the receptionist so professional but also very warm and wanted to ensure you,had a good stay at the property. The chef and restaurant staff are also so customer focused.The service and food are outstanding as is the wine! DO arrange to go and visit their vineyard where again you will be given a most professional tour and a warm welcome by the lady there.She is also extremely knowledgable about the excellent high quality wine.The views from the vineyard are beautiful and probably the best we saw in the area. Room beautiful large spotlessly clean. Lovely swimming pool and garden. The area is convenient for visiting Baroque towns .

    We had a wonderful stay here.The food was magnificent, both at breakfast and dinner the staff were exceptional, finding out information we needed and giving advice on where to go. They found out information on a train journey we wanted to take. The room was large with a small kitchen area, good for drinks and snacks, and the pool and garden were superb, a very peaceful garden with lovely plants. As we love sea swimming we were very happy to find a beautiful area of sandy beach five minutes from the hotel, but you do need a car to get there.We definitely recommend this hotel.

    Noisy fridge in our room. The hotel is located in a lovely garden but if you leave the hotel gardens you are in polytunnel farmland.

    Very charming and well cared for ambience with comfortable and tasteful rooms. Great breakfast and last but not least extremely helpful and friendly staff.

    Very nice place, full of character. For us coming with the ferry from Malta, it is an ideal first stop 15 minutes away from the Pozzallo port. The restaurant is high class.

    Track from road was somewhat rough! Torre is in the middle of nowhere so although they do provide dinner (good food too), if you want to eat out elsewhere at night, it is a little bit of an adventure getting back; thank goodness for SatNav!

    Beautifully quiet and peaceful, very friendly and helpful staff, breakfast on the terrace, good pool, large airy room with simple cooking facilities. Good base for exploring area.

    Room was very dark, not very comfortable and very noisy from reception area. Breakfast selection very poor. Was told one day we could not use the lounge as there was a meeting in progress - we are pretty sure by outside visitors. We think it unacceptable that hotel guests cannot use the lounge because it is in use by non-hotel guests!! Additionally, address says Ispica but in fact it is halfway between Ispica and Pozzallo so we wasted nearly 45 minutes in Ispica looking for it. Trial and error finally found it!!

    Grounds were nicely set out. Lunch on first day was good.

    Room was bit dark. Pool is not for children and lilos! Make this an 'adult-only' hotel. Upgrade the sunbeds.

    Location - peace and quiet. Lots of places to sit outside - shade and sun. Breakfast taken under the vines; dinner outside with garden view; good food, can make requests. Beautiful pool. Suite (on 2 levels) had mini kitchen and good sized bathroom. Lots of space.
