We stayed here for a few nights as part of a holiday in Sicily. The setting and views were fantastic, on a headland overlooking the bay into Syracuse. The hotel is actually about 12 km from the city, and operates a free shuttle bus into the city centre. Our room was well equipped and quite spacious, and very clean. Dining was on a terrace overlooking the hotel beach, so was very atmospheric in mild evenings; the food was nice and well presented.. The hotel beach was very pretty, and quite safe -... Read more

Outstanding location across from antique Syracuse, alias Ortygia, When we found about this place, we left the Borgo Pantano hotel, nice enough but set in a mediocre environment, and we were delighted with our choice: The GH Minareto is indeed luxurious, peaceful, and set on the delightful Plemmirio Marine Reserve. Superb manicured gardens, private cove and beach with hamacs, lounge chairs and crystal clear water. As well as a beautiful wild promontory with more lounge chairs and a staircase lea... Read more

I enjoyed my stay at the grand Minareto hotel in Sicily. The grounds of the hotel are exquisite the location is magnificent and the rooms are comfortable .although I found the lighting in the room not adequate. The people at the hotel are kind and very helpful.There is one thing I must mention and that is that in October the place is over run with flies for some reason it seems the is the month for flies so be warned . I found the breakfasts at the hotel very good with a large variety of items... Read more

I stayed at the GH Minareto last week as part of a Yoga retreat with yoga-escapes.com and it was a wonderful experience. This review will only focus on the hotel itself and not the yoga. Whilst at the hotel, I was able to enjoy a stunning view on their gardens, the stunning sea and the beautiful coastal surroundings from pretty much everywhere I was. I only ate at their restaurant at breakfast because I like to explore local restaurants. The breakfast was very good and offerred a lot options bu... Read more

I came here with Yoga Escapes and lived a fantastic week of a genuine Sicily experience. The hotel is composed of beautiful bungalows allowing for a feel of privacy and comfort. My room had an extensive terrace with breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea and the city of Syracuse. The little villas are surrounded by typical Sicilian plants-a paradise on earth. The service was discrete and extremely friendly.

I am currently staying at this hotel with my daughter in their five star villas. We have had problems with the villas since we arrived, first being locked in as the door lock was broken. 24 hours later this is still a problem. Food at breakfast is as other stated tinned fruit and packet cereal , cakes and cooked meats. the lighting in the villas and lack of privacy shouts out that this was not designed by any one who had any idea about hotel rooms. You are blinded when you walk in by brigh... Read more

Recently I spent a week at this Hotel with my friends and it was an amazing experience for all of us. Starting from the most beautiful location...facing Ortega, old part of Siracusa, and going all the way through quality of service and staff.... small villas with apartments, our was facing the bay with incredible view to Mount Etna and Ortega.. sunsets and sundowns every day were the most wanted moments you can imagine...with a glass of wine or some delicious sea food from the hotel restaurant....

We stayed here in September as part of a bike tour. On the day of our arrival, we enjoyed an idyllic afternoon on the hotel's small, but private beach. Lovely service and very relaxing. Apart from that, the hotel was unmemorable. Perhaps because there was a large wedding party at the hotel, our dinner that night at the hotel restaurant was interminably long and the food was subpar..

Traveller beware.I don't think my travel agency,Original UK,did its homework before placing us here for 4 nights.When we arrived we were surprised to find that it is located relatively far from town-an estimated 25 euro one way fare,in what appears to be an industrial park.It was raining so we asked about the hotel's advertised shuttle to town and were informed that not only was the shuttle booked for that day but that it was fully booked for the entire 4 days of our scheduled stay.The desk cler...

We visited for 10 days at the end of October/start of Nov. The hotel has a beautiful pool which is incredibly clean and an excellent size. It isn't heated which was a down side for us due to visiting when it was slightly cold some days. However, on the warmer days was lovely to swim in and the sun loungers are very comfortable. The bar at the pool serves lovely salads and cocktails. The room was sea view albeit slightly small but with balcony and seating. Unfortunately due to the storm the ro... Read more
