Great Hotel, exclusive, very friendly staff...

Oct 24th, 2020

The area, where the hotel is situated is fantastic because you have two parts of the sea were you can relax... one is more quiet with beds on the rock, the other one has a sandy beach. The Breakfast is very good, the rooms are beautiful and the stuff is very helpful and extremely friendly... I ordered some small dishes they were all very good... and you can talk to the staff by WhatsApp and stay in touch with them anytime so every single order is arriving in minutes...villas and suites are nice decorated and it’s a real holiday resort. Don’t save money, spend it on your comfort... after that stay you will be energetic & powerful! I loved everything there! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

A wonderful week in a lovely hotel

Oct 21st, 2020

We had a seven-night stay here in early October 2020 and everything about the experience was good. A warm welcome on arrival, with our luggage we were taken by buggy to our room, a Superior Seaview with a nice small terrace and a view across the bay to the island of Ortigia. Due to Covid restrictions the bar was closed but instead the hotel had a WhatsApp system whereby drinks were delivered to your room, this worked perfectly. Breakfast is served on an open-air terrace overlooking the sea and we had dinner in the hotel three times, the food was top quality, the service efficient and they have a great selection of local wines. We also used the boat taxi service to Ortigia which was good, and at €20 return per person, considerably less than half the cost of a local cab. Finally, probably the best thing about the hotel is the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Everyone we came into contact with was lovely and couldn't do enough to make our stay a great one.

Luxury hotel with gorgeous views out to sea from our yoga terrace!

Oct 20th, 2020

We've been coming to the Grand Hotel Minareto for our yoga retreats since 2013 - several times a year - and it's been a wonderful experience each time. Sergio the manager and his team have always been super welcoming and make us feel at home every time we come back. The hotel is located on a protected marine reserve and has a peaceful and quiet atmosphere. The gardens, beach, and cliffside areas are the perfect escape to nature with gorgeous views out to sea and to the town of Ortigia across the bay. The staff go out of their way to help the guests, the breakfast has all sorts of options including delicious Italian pastries and real Italian coffee, the rooms have lovely sea views as does our large yoga terrace, and the hotel is just a 15 minute ride into town. We will be going back next year for more yoga retreats and are already looking forward to it! Thank you to all the Minareto hotel staff from our yoga groups! Laura TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Simply wonderful

Oct 19th, 2020

I decided to take the plunge and book a holiday to Sicily rather than stay in the UK, and I'm so delighted I made the decision. The hotel is in a wonderful location overlooking Ortigia. You can get a taxi to the town, but on a couple of occasions I took a water taxi which provided wonderful sunset views over the bay. The hotel has a small stretch of private sandy beach with clear shallow water. It's accessible via a steep slope which may not suit everyone, but there are golf buggies all around the resort so someone will gladly drive you down the slope :-) There are also sunbeds dotted around the cliffs with rocky steps into the sea. The pool area is beautiful and was so peaceful while I was there. Due to Covid restrictions, all food and drink has to be ordered via Whatsapp (except at breakfast) which was a quick and easy service - probably better than the usual service! The staff were absolutely wonderful, particularly the Manager who was helping out and serving guests at breakfast. I think he secretly enjoyed the change to his usual day job! I would highly recommend taking the plunge and booking a trip. It felt very safe (masks indoors and outdoors in public places, temperature checks in restaurants and hand sanitiser everywhere). The hotel is roomy enough to accommodate all guests safely - I don't think I came within 3 meters of anyone outside my group all week. The island could really do with your support :-) TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

An absolutely wonderful safe stay

Oct 17th, 2020

We initially had a week booked in Dorset, UK but decided to book this trip with BA Holidays at the very last minute - Best Decision We Ever Made! The resort is situated in an amazing location that cannot be beaten. The views from every location is breathtaking and the gardens beautifully managed by the staff quietly working. The villa rooms are lovely and beautifully taken care of the housekeeping staff. In fact all staff we met throughout our 6 night stay went above and beyond to take care of us. A combination of great food, wine, sandy or rocky beach, pool and sun was a perfect respite from our jobs in healthcare. We felt incredibly safe during our stay with all staff following the guidance set in place. We plan on returning and will rent a car next time so we can tour more of the surrounding area. Thank you Sergio & team for all your hard work! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
