... attached to toilets; and access to loungers and umbrellas, near said activities, but at a cost...... a price you are more than willing to pay, I might add, after surveying the alternative.

We identified the most central lounging area and Paolo went off to pay for them; when I say them, I mean lounger 1, 2 and 3, which is what it said on our ticket, and where we were expected to lounge. This was made very clear to me when, 5 minutes after ...

... It is a fantastic hotel, quiet and the room is very spacious. However we will only be here one night as our tour of Sicily commences in the morning.

    Very lovely and helpful staff, allowing me to check in early, keeping my bag safe for me while I looked around Catania, reccomending and booking a great restaurant for me, even getting them to come pick me up! Nice room, comfy bed, great breakfast.
