The hotel is clean and comfortable. The first room we were sent to had no windows and was strangely kitted out to look like some kind of ship. Really odd! And very, very oppressive. The gym and "spa" were unplugged/switched off. We used the gym but were told it was extra to use the spa (in a way that suggested they would really rather we didn't bother) - which was in any case switched off. As a family of four we had two rooms (one for the kids) which weren't particularly close together - and one of the rooms was very pokey. But it was nice enough - provided you are out and about all day. Perhaps one more suited to the more mature customer.
This hotel is hard to find, even with a GPS, until you know the way. Trust your GPS, that road up the hill is actually a 2 way street. It's not really walking distance to town and the castle is a steep uphill walk. We drove anywhere we went. Milazzo is a lovely town, but they take their afternoon break seriously and everything closed down from about 2:00 to 4:00. Many of the cafes are small and you will pay extra if you sit at a table rather than take away. There's a lovely water side park, so just take your slice and drink there. At night, skip the restaurants on the main street and find something in one of the alleys or up by the castle. We were there off season, so the bars in the hotel were not open. A very nice check in clerk managed to make us a drink from the small lobby bar. We checked in late and they were helpful with luggage and parked the car for free. Yes, as described, the AC leaves something to be desired. We got the clerk to change the temperature, but it really never got comfortably cool enough.
Spent one very quiet night before continuing to Lipari. Night clerk speaks English, assisted with luggage, and noticed that bathroom exhaust fan would not turn off and moved us to another room before we settled in. In the morning breakfast server was also attentive.
