Grand Hotel Minareto, Syracuse
One of the best seaside hotels in the world?
Is this one of the best hotels in the world?15 minutes from Siracusa, in a wonderful position facing the bay the hotel is in a beautiful carefully planned garden.The 90 rooms are spread in the garden, each a building with just ground floor. We had a large room for three and a large bathroom. Elegant and efficient, excellent bed and private balcony. The hotel has a reception and a restaurant building. All is close, 200m. Swimming pool. But the top are the two options for swimming and sunning: on one side an exclusive beach, 100 meters of paradise. Between sand rocks and a blue water. Silence and sun until the afternoon. On the other side, facing Siracusa, spectacular cliffs, with platforms with sunbeds. Many options, each an experience. Evening sun! And two jacuzzi facing the view. Breakfast is unusually rich for Italy, try the cured pepper cheese or the orange salad with onions. excellent dinners. Try the Norma! Simona welcomed us and upgraded us to a room with view.Very kind and efficient, provided a wifi broadcaster for our room which then had excellent Internet. The staff at the restaurant was so kind and nice, say hallo to Gabriella. Michele at the reception needs a special mention: I got a fine and failed to find an open ufficio postale to pay it. He offered to do it for me! Incredibly nice and friendly. I also got the impression that all the other guests got individual attention.

Beach Luxury with history thrown in!
What a nice surprise when you reach the dead end of a long country road. Superb location and staff are very proactive at making the stay perfect. Evening Meals are a bit 'trendy small' but reasonable price. The breakfast is healthy, loads of fruit. Foreigners can't do sausage and bacon so lets not go there. Would stay here any time. Syracuse town is great and reception helped us with best parking locations and access around the place. Great for a wander.

Beautiful scenery from the hotel
We had an amazing stay, beautiful scenery from the resort, access to facilities, and helpful staff. I could have stayed longer and would definitely return.

Great hotel in oasis like setting
We have stayed here before and it's a great property. You can choose from a private beach - which is very acceptable (not for walking though), and the pool - which is large and very clean. Breakfast is very good and rooms are large and comfortable. Staff was fairly helpful and generally happy. Not sure if it's best value for your money but it's a real good option when visiting Siracusa. We would definitely recommend this place.

5 Stars but no plans to return
A very strange experience staying at the Grand Hotel Minareto. It would be difficult to criticise the facilities or the service, but this is not a venue I would choose to return to. There were lots of Italians who were there to be cossetted and pampered, along with quite a few Americans. There did not seem to be much interaction amongst the guests except for those who already knew each other. If there is any criticism it would be about the size of the room - it was a bit cramped for two people with even medium sized suitcases. We were there for just three days, so not inclined to disgorge our entire two week wardrobe and thus found it a bit difficult. And air con was a bit ferocious and tricky to turn down.
