Amazing resort
Loved this resort. Very clean and so good service by all the staff in reception, kitchen and cleaning etc. Kitchen staff make a lot of effort for milk and gluten allergies with great options. Outdoor swimmingpool area is really nice too. Indoor pools (SPA) is not included in the price, its an 15 euro extra for one hour. Need to take a taxi to get there since there is no public bus nearby. Really recommended this resort even if you dont play golf and just wanna come and relax.

Relaxing stay
Relaxing facility, position is great, quite, in the nature, nice pool, friendly and helpful staff, a good place far away from confusion of cities, only one issue, spa is not included, have to be paid extra, for such a place its a must to be included, food average may be better for Sicily standards

Beautiful course and fabulous food
Thought I would get in a couple of rounds while in Sicily. Had a wonderful stay here. The resort is a slightly older spot in a beautiful setting at base of Etna. The course was gorgeous - lava rock walls, olive groves, chestnut trees and vineyards, though a few of the holes were ridiculously narrow. Went with the dinner included package as the resort is somewhat isolated - the best food we had while in Sicily and we had some incredible meals. It was also an incredible value (we were in off season though the weather was perfect - go figure, Europeans always seem to vacation at the same times). Service was fabulous, generous pours of bourbon at the bar. The only negative would be a funky room setup and slightly worn and stained carpets. Maybe they should stick to stone or tile floors like all the other hotels in Sicily.

Stayed for my cousins wedding - it was good
The location of this hotel is awesome if you are staying near Mount Etna. Especially if you like golf of wineries. I am from NYC and it was just hard for me to adjust being in the middle of nowhere and not being able to get whatever you want whenever you want. For instance if the restaurants are closed in the hotel there is nowhere to get food or even a snack. No vending machines or anything. I woke up jet lagged at 3 AM and was very hungry. Other than that the lady at the front desk was awesome and a huge help. The bartender was funny and cool. The pool is beautiful, and I wish I got to play a round of golf because the course actually looked really nice. Try their white sparkling wine which they make on the property, it is delicious.

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.

8/10 Very good

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.
