This family run Hotel overlooking a rocky beach is spectacular. The staff is extremely friendly and always helpful. The rooms are specious and clean. There are restaurants within walking distance to choose from. Definitely recommend it.
I have just returned home from a 4 day holiday in Sicily, from 6th July to the 9th.staying at Zeus Hotel. Both the room and the bathroom were quite big and modern, and perfectly clean. The shower in missing a curtain, and you have to be very careful, as water can easily spill out and create a mess. We also had a big balcony, with 2 chairs and no table, just to put a drink on it. I do not know why they use sofa double beds, which are very uncomfortable to get out of bed and also form a hollow in the middle. We had no view whatsoever from our room(203) We were facing a small central courtyard. Breakfast is very poor even when compared to similar hotels in the region.
It was our family trip to Sicily and we booked 3 rooms. Two rooms had a great ocean view and the beautiful sound of the ocean. The whole structure is new. The rooms were clean. Even if you don't have the ocean view from your room there is a common area terrace with a wonderful ocean view. There are no beaches in walking distance but you can possibly get to the water through the rocks from the hotel and swim. Staff were exceptionally kind and efficient so our stay was very comfortable.
We really loved the view of the room, and the patio. Very relaxing and quiet place. We were also able to get a transport to and from the airport. Overall, I wished we would have stayed here longer. Very relaxing.
This place was sparkling new! Rooms were very spacious and well appointed with a mini kitchen too. The bathroom was lovely with a powerful shower. Very clean. The only weird thing is that the only bed option was a sofa bed, it was moderately comfortable. This place certainly is very good value compared to other places in the area. If you want to stay in Aci Castello I’d definitely recommend this place! Staff spoke perfect English. The receptionist (her name was Lou.. something long!.. sorry!) was super friendly with lots of advice about where to visit in Sicily. The aircon in the room broke and we were moved to an upgraded sea view room (which was super!!). Breakfast a nice continental option with boiled eggs and croissants. Etc. Beach not accessible from the hotel, but you can sit on the rocks or patio area and look out to sea. Just up the road (on the other side) is the Sheraton. You can use the outdoor pool and beach access for 15 Euro if you like and buy a ticket for the hop on / hop off bus that will take you to into Catania. (Pay 5 Euro in the hotel and 10 on the bus). Tip: DON’T get a taxi to Aci Castello from the airport - it’s quite far and cost me more than the hotel! 60 Euro!! Unfortunately being a lone woman at night I felt I didn’t want to get the bus on my own. Pre-book your transfer or if in the day, get the bus! Get a sea view room with balcony!…
