hotel, staff, food, pool location
Location and a real sense of character and style. The setting was magnificent and the main house has been beatifully restored.It was also very heartening to to enjoy contact with the owners who showed a genuine sense of personal interest and concern for the well being of their guests. The young barman/waiter was most engaging and did much to make you feel both welcome and valued as a client. Meals were slightly expensive and varied in terms of their real value for money. However, they were in keeping with the overall ambience. Over a period of nights, the range of dinner options wasn't perhaps as imaginative as it might have been. The mattress was very unyielding but this seems to be a common feature of Italian sleeping surfaces!
Quiet, civilised, good if idiosyncratic service, lovely old building, nice setting.
The staff and the grounds are the best things about Lady Lusya. Our first night happened to be my birthday and they acknowledged that with a complimentary bottle of champagne. They were very kind. The grounds are very beautiful and well manicured. The main house is really nice and rustic. Dinner was good, but nothing really special. The bed was so uncomfortable. I had a backache after sleeping there for three nights. The shower was too tiny and water ran all over the floor. So I did not enjoy the shower at all and could not wait to get home to my own shower. However there are other rooms with larger showers and I am sure better beds so you may be able to switch rooms.
Well presented - lovely gardens- good pool Dinner was barely adequate
location, kindness of the staff, beauty of the hotel, very big room poor choice at the restaurant, a pity in such a country with such good products
Building itself was fabulous. Staff were very friendly. Very relaxed atmosphere. Like a home away from home, but more attractive. Loved coming back to the hotel. Felt like we were coming home. A bit expensive, but we knew this in advance. Subsequent hotels on our trip made us realise, however, that this place was a bit special. When one goes to Sicily one wants to stay at a hotel which somehow reflects the history and culture of the island. Unlike Lady Lusya, too many hotels on the island follow the American model - too flash, too shiny, too sanitised. The Lady Lusya offered us tradition and history, and this was more important than the expense we had to incur to stay there. A wonderful place.
the swimming pool poor state of beds and furniture around the pool
Immaculately clean Beautiful gardens imaginatively decorated bedrooms family atmosphere Excellent lido and beach with restaurant 100m away They seemed disappointed that we didn't eat in their restaurant most evenings - so this felt a little pressurising
very nice surrounding
Location and staff Decor
i thing, i liked everything in this hotel
The loacation at the beach and its location close (within 30 to 45 mins) to many of sicilies attraction in the west.
The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. The hotel is very close to the wonderful beach. The in-hotel restaurant has great local food. We highly recommend having diner there.
The staff were very helpful and the hotel extremely clean. The food was good and the service excellent.
Very good location. Breakfast and coffee are perfect. Close to the beach. Very nice garden. Well equiped. Staff are very nice and helpful and speak English. The hotel has inside parking places. Few tv channels.
the place is good but it was not organize for getting guests in the morning, nothing was ready- not on breakfast. we didn't like the breakfast at all- things were not freash , things were missing
Warm decor of the room, cleanliness (esp. bathroom), location (when you visit the beach - it is quite close to it), breakfast, staff spoke good english. There is actually no proper restaurant in the area, just 2 pizzerias, but it was enough for us.
Staff is frendly. Restorant is good. Evry weekend nights in this hotel (friday to sunday) private party untill to 3-4 morning, very loud music and italian voicec. Baby no sleep, I and my wife to.
Lovely clean rooms, beautiful pool and grounds. Majority of staff helpful and friendly. Quiet and relaxing (we went out of season a little and hotel is set up for weddings and other functions so may not always be so!!). A little remote and unless eating at the hotel not much choice around. Car definitely needed and beach a bit of a rough walk from the hotel. A little tatty around the edges.
breakfast, however it isn't a real 4 stars hotel ...
The personal touches and helpfullness of staff
the location and open space the room should be a bit bigger
polite staff. very green. we did't find way to the beach. About sauna were not informed. Cold in the room. Heating with aircondition was too loudy to keep it at night on.
Nice farm, 2 mainbuildings, one is having rooms and reception and very nice breakfast buffet is in the other "restaurant" building. Direct at the SS, so easy to find. However not in Avola or Noto, but between Siracusa and Avola. English speaking is recommanded
The people were very accommodating and even cooked a lovely dinner for only us (just my husband and I) at the last minute so we didn't have to go back into town. The setting is very peaceful - one is also able to walk to the ocean. It lived up to what we had read and expected
I loved that it was so quiet. It had the beautiful cliffs and the emply beach within easy walking distance. The wait staff where great during breakfast and dinner. There was lots of variety to choose from for breakfast. Nothing.
Nicely situated within ten minutes walk of a beach and some small cliffs. The dinner provided very generous portions and the breakfast had agood selection of items. A liitle maintenance required (WC not functioning, window would not close, door difficult to open) but nothing that could not be fixed in five minutes.
I liked the beach being so close to the accommodation.
Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and great food. The noise from the road- like being next to motorway! Room- no hairdryer, no cold drinks available - beer or soft.
I was in Italy for three weeks and this by far was the best accommodations. Great Sea View with access to the Sea. Friendliness and helpfulness of staff, the breakfast was very good and the ambient very nice .
Perfect and silent location close to the beach, helpful and "smiling" staff, very delicius Sicilian food, optional full and half board, Basic prices a bit too high comparing to relevant other hotels and agroturismo
