    It was a wonderful, clean hotel, well appointed. We liked the service shuttle into the hotel, and wished that they offered an earlier one from the hotel to the ariport....perhaps they need to increase shuttles into town and to airport more frequently. Great amenities, food was excellent.

    lack of early morning airport shuttles

    Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. We had been traveling Italy for several weeks and we delighted by our accomodations at the Romano. Pool was great and the food was wonderful. We did not go across to the beach but it was right there. We ended up lounging by the pool. Oh, and the beds were so comfortable! Plus they had great water pressure in the shower!!!

    Nice location, beautiful hotel, good beds.

    Staff was a bit rude. I complaint about the shower and the warm water (it was warm-cold-warm-cold); and all the reception said was "this is not possible". Later on she showed me a drawing the maintenance guy drew for me to explain how the tap works... Well I think I understand how a tap works sincer I'm an adult... The bathroon was just very ready for a renovation! Also I thought it was a pity I wouldn't eat anything (but a sandwich) in this 5-star hotel between 5 and 8!! I was waiting for a flight, and couldn't buy anything.

    * REstruant made some good food (pasta at least). * Close to airport if yo on you way home (But is is not reaally possible to work to airport even it is only 2 km away).

    * Rooms to small! * Resturant service limited (only from 20 o clock in the evning, hence ,ot good for famillies with small childeren). Limited selection for room service! PRICY prices! * No cold water in our room. * Beach service all-ready closed in beginng of october even waether was 24-26 C and water temp. 23. * There is no facilities at this hotel, only pool and WIFI (in reception)! Not in rooms! * The locality is cramped between big roads/high ways! And 5km away of city center! * The shuttle they claim to have only runs a few times! In all, this hotel is very pricy and there is litterily no facilities for you, hence, noway it is a 5 star hotel, maybe a 3+ star. Taken the price into account and can not recommend people to stay here! The

    Near to the airport, nice green garden oasis in the town.

    This hotel is too far from 5 stars.

    Everything! This is a great hotel. Beautifully designed and staff cater to your every need. We actually moved to this hotel because we were unhappy with the one we were staying in and it was simply better in every way. Pool area is very nice, rooms are excellent, food is great, no complaints.

    Impressive setting for a moderate price. Design and equipment worth visiting. Helpful staff.

    Domain too closed off, making a late evening walk near the beach difficult. Breakfast would be OK for a 2 star hotel, is unacceptable for a 5 star hotel. Wi-fi in the rooms is simply not true, the signal is too weak.

    The hotel staffs are well-trained while they are Italian.

    The brightness of lights in the room is NOT sufficient, which means "too dark room". Lights arrangements in the room are strongly required.

    I only stayed one night and departed early in the morning so I dont have great idea about the hotel, but from my short experience it was very good ex

    I think the bar should provide food such as sandwiches or small meals.

    I didn't like anything about this hotel. They couldn't even provide a kettle in my room for me to make a decent cup of tea with! And they overcharged me on several low-value items, at the end of my stay. I am disgusted with this hotel. It was very bad, I didn't like it there at all, and I would not recommend it to anyone!! If I could, I would demand a full refund of my money ! !

    I didn't like anything about this place. One or two of the staff were quite nice and quite helpful, but the others were not. I was grossly overcharged at 20 Euros (for a 7 Euro breakfast), and I was overcharged another 20 Euros for a 16 Euro 'dinner', (which tasted so disgusting I couldn't even finish eating it), as well as a daily 'tax' for staying there, and I am far from happy!!

    Really reach breakfasts comparing to other Italian hotels. Beautiful rooms, bathrooms, balcony etc. Free shuttle 3 times a day to/from Catania and airport. Very good park with jogging tracks right behind the hotel. Very friendly personnel. Free good internet in rooms. Great thanks to staff for letting us stay at room at the day of leaving!!!

    We only didn't like much the restaurant (lunch and dinner). Maybe because of the winter season. It's better to eat at Catania or in cafes along the Via Kennedy or at Auchan (you can get there through the jogging park - about 7 min). Everything other was really great.

    Location close to the Catania city, 10 minutes by car. Michelin star rated restaurant was serving good food + fantastic background piano music.

    You have to be aware of cheating risk in this hotel. First negative experience was at the dinner. The food was forth of rather high prices given in menu but staff tried to charge us 40% more first. Only after the protest we got the correct conto... Second negative experience was when we checked out. The rate we were booking through Booked.net was not valid anymore and explanations were not clear at all. Finally we had to pay 160 EUR per night what was absolutely too much for the small and very dark room we got. Also have to mention that You have to keep very silent in this hotel as other vice neghbours will hear any word You say. No sound isolation between the rooms. Technically there were problems with air conditioning in the room, bath and water heater we had.
