We stayed at Hotel Le Dune Sicily in August 2007 for 8 days. The hotel is great, the room are big, neat, clean, pretty, and with all the amenities needed such as a minibar, TV, Phone, fitted wardrobes, a large window, comfortable beds, etc.. There is a big bathroom also, although the shower was a little awkward. There were good facilities, a nice pool, lots of greenery, ivy, bougainvillea, etc, a solarium next to the pool, and a restaurant where you can eat great, but that's the general trend in Sicily. The staff could not be more friendly, helpful 100%. We were on half board, I highly recommend the Sicilian CASATTA EXQUISITE, specifically the Hotel, mmmm more good things I've tried. The downside of all this is ... Catania, if we had known what it was like, we would have chosen to visit other prettier cities, such as Taormina, which is great, or Palermo or Syracuse ... With the stay in the hotel, you get a pass to the beach right in front, there is a "Lido", supermarket but there is nothing like our beaches. Catania does not have too many things to see, but we rented a car and toured the island. In short, I don´t have a single drawback regarding the hotel because we loved it for how comfy and very Mediterranean it was. There was delicious and varied cuisine and lovely staff. By the way, think twice before going to Sicily in July-August , it is so hot!
