B&B Villa Carlotta
via Farag, 1i C. da Cannatello
We stayed at B&B Villa Carlotta on our 2013 visit to Sicily. We really enjoyed at time at the B&B.
Our room was large and pleasant. The pool was great, and the good quality lounge furniture much appreciated. Nice not to have plastic but a wood lounge bed with cloth cover.
Our breakfasts were good with cakes, croissants, cereals and fruit. Juice and coffee of course.
Adraina, our host is most gracious and goes out of her way to look after your needs.
UNA Palace Hotel
via Etnea, 218
95131 Catania Sicily
On our 2013 visit to Sicily there were some last minute changes to our plans. As we thought about where to stay we decided that if we wanted to see the city of Catania, why stay in Catania. Good decision. We found the UNA Palace Hotel and had two wonderful nights in this upscale hotel.
The UNA Palace is located in a classic building, dating back to the early 1900s on the street of Catania, via Etnea. The rooms are elegant. The food on the stunning roof-top terrace great. Heck, I never even had time to see the fitness centre and other ammenities of the hotel as there was just too much to see in Catania.
The staff were attentative and helpful. So, our advice, if you want to see a city, stay in the city, and location wise, you could not get better for Catania.

Wow, what a place we first found this hotel on our June 2000 visit to Sicily. We have always wanted to return and for our 2003 trip we re-arranged our entire itinerary so that we could stay here once again. Well worth it.
The hotel is elegantly furnished with a large pool and patio that overlook the sea. Look out over the black lava rocks at the sea. Rooms on the sea-side have patios. Rooms on the back of the hotel are air-conditioned. Take your pick!
The staff are friendly and the food great. By all means take your meals here are you'll enjoy each and every bite! The restaurant serves a good range of great wines also. You'll enjoy them.

In June 2000 we had the pleasure of staying at this small hotel located just a few doors away from the wonderful beach at San Vito Lo Capo. You will receive a warm welcome from all, special thanks go to Vito who helped us with a boat tour -- be sure to take that -- and other arrangements. Take board as the food is great! Unfortunately in 2003 when we returned it was full and we were unable to get in. Great little hotel.

On our 2003 tour we found this hotel in desperation. It turned out to be a great place. The rooms are very comfortable and well decorated, it has a wonderful pool, even through there are archways and archways, and the food in the restaurant it very good.
A typical driving day. Driving too long, then not being able to find a place. Finally I walked into a var in Sciacca and asked if anyone knew how to find the hotel. Well were my companions shocked when I did not come out with instructions, no a very nice guy came out with me, and we followed him on his motocycle as he led us through the town and down the road about 4 km out of town to find the hotel. Yep. Scilia is great.

Taormina is always enjoyable day when on the east coast of Sciliy. Slow down and enjoy a great lunch.
La Griglia is worth each of its two Michelin Forks. In 2003 we enjoyed a very good lunch. The pastas were top notch. The restaurant is closed on Tuesdays so plan your days accordingly!
