Fantastic facilities for the price staff helpful and friendly breakfast was great the hotel is located between the train station and the port but a taxi service is available we have stayed on two occasions
Milazzo is an interesting town and this hotel has a fabulous location. It is close to a fantastic bar and some great eating places. What we liked best was walking out the front door and finding men selling fish on the harbour edge, others repairing their nets and the general friendly atmosphere everywhere. The hotel is within walking distance of everything you want to see and is handy for the post to get the boat to the Aeolian Islands.
We had a superior room which was very roccoco in its design with a huge bed and fabulous furniture and bathroom.
This was the last of five stops on our tour of Sicily - and chosen to be a treat for the last four nights. The hotel is very well appointed - classy, contemporary decor in the rooms, a beautiful swimming pool (plus tennis court and 5-a-side football pitch!) and, from our deluxe room, a wonderful view over the town and the bay. Breakfasts were fine, but we didn't have any dinners in the hotel because the menu was hopeless for vegetarians. The hotel isn't perfect - there were annoyances like the room air-conditioning, (which you can't adjust or even turn on/off, from the room - you have to phone reception and ask them to do it!!!), the room's television (which for most of our stay would only play one channel) and, finally, getting into the hotel (which is through security gates and requires reception to be buzzed from outside the gates). If you're choosing this hotel and, like ours, your room looks out over the bay and the pool, I would recommend a room on at least the second floor because there seem to be frequent wedding receptions on the terrace around the pool which can go on into the early hours, complete with flashbulbs and general hubbub - so the higher up your room, the better.
Founded in 716 BC, Milazzo is a town in northern Sicily on the west side of the Gulf of Milazzo. While bombed during World War II, Milazzo's Old Town boasts Spanish walls from the 16th century, as well as a 13th century Norman castle.
