I Piccilolo

Stayed at ll Picciolo for a few nights whilst exploring the Etna and surrounding area. Hotel very comfortable and clean. Visit the local town of Castiglione Di Sicilia of an evening for aperitivo or dinner. Breakfast which was included was very good and staff attentive and helpful. Would stay here again. More beds are required around the pool though.

Il Picciolo Etna Golf Resort & Spa was a great place to stay, and both myself and partner were very happy with our stay. The hotel was spacious, clean and very nice to stay in. The standard room had a very comfy bed, we had great views looking out to Mt. Etna and surrounding hills, with a clean ensuite and good shower. Staff were very welcoming, friendly and more than happy to assist us with any of our needs and answer any of our questions. The only thing we were slightly disappointed by was the evening meal portion sizes and the few cooked breakfast options. The food we did have both in the evening and for breakfast was very tasty and presented nicely, but there could have been more of it in the portion sizes and more options.
