Accommodation was adequate, a lack of tea/coffee facilities in room was dissapointing, breakfast was a bit of a flaff due to only one coffee machine for all guests, but breakfast itself was good, even8ng meals are avg on the weekly menu, the daily menu got better at the weekend, the pool is excellent, the pool bar could offer a bit more in the way of snacks , aside from all the negatives i have to say the staff are the best i have experienced, nothing is too much trouble, always polite and smiling, a good understanding of british humour, i cant remember all names, but Vinny (manager) Antoni in the resturant, Annabella, pool and bar, Rossetta evening resturant,the cocktail bar guy, and the young guy pool attendant and bar, absolutley made our stay the best, also at reception Carla, marco, fredrika?, sorry if all names not correct, it doesent really matter they are all great thankyou. I would like to add, we took two trips which the hotel arranged for us, one a guided tour of mount Etna, lead by Michele and Guiseppe from siciliaAdventure.it, this was a fantastic well informed day out, and the the Gambino wine tasting trip which was again absolutley brilliant, (thankyou Nino) SO for us golfers and none golfers there is a lot more to do at il Picciolo resort.
