Rated 4 out of 5 by Vincos Surprisingly Satisfactory
OVERALL IMPRESSION: I believe this property is one of a generation of Sheratons opened in Italy for the 1990 World’s Cup. In general they have not fared well - charmless, outmoded and poorly staffed. This one is a very pleasant and surprising exception. It is buzzing with lots of local activity, provides attentive service and has a couple of attractive features like a sea-front location, great swimming pool, small shopping arcade and plant-filled central atrium.
SPG RECOGNITION: Touch-and-go until the last minute but they came through with a top category upgrade, an excellent local wine in the room and a complimentary breakfast in the main dining room. No Club Lounge.
THE ROOM: A very large and comfortable top floor suite with two full baths and two large furnished balconies with sea view. Really in need - like the rest of the property in general - of a spruce-up.
LOCATION: The hotel is 5kms from the centre of Catania and the far side of the city from the airport, however, it is very close to charming Aci Tezza.
DID NOT MEET EXPECTATIONS: Sheraton Sleeper mattress, down pillows and upgraded bath and bed linens should be brand standards...they were definitely missing here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nero Nice hotel - great view
If you speak some Italian you'll have all your wishes attended to
They do try if you don't, however.
It is actually a busy place and not really a holiday hotel. But pool, restaurant and bar are fine. There is a shuttle service to downtown Catania and the pretty Aci Castello castle and village are in walking district

We (a family of four) have been visiting for two decades Sheraton Catania and we have never been disappointed. Being myself a "stranded child" of this hectic Sicilian town I found in this hotel the best compromise I might ever dreamed between staying at family home and a holiday vacation. Albeit belonging to the award-winning chain SPG, Sheraton Catania retains a boutique hotel flavor and perfectly knows how to cuddle its guests from year to year. Its staff from the management down to the other departments makes your vacation unforgettable in a family way, mixed with a true Mediterranean soul. It is by far the best situated hotel in the Catania area both for business-oriented guests and families (with small children ...) alike. It is in the vicinity of the bustling town and at the same time it stands just a few walks away from the "Grand Bleu" (i.e. Mediterrannean Sea). After a day spent in Catania (for business) or travelling around unearthing the hidden gems of the Eastern coast of the largest island of the Mediterranean, it is nice and self-rewarding to all you a well-deserved in this oasis ovelooking the cobalt-blue sea framed by lava rocks (you can easily get to the sea which is very often calm and well-suited for children and rookies swimmers). Hard to pick special mentions with regard to this hotel: enlightened and attentive management, high quality (and yet quite affordable) restaurant, anxious to let customers discovering Sicilian specialities. In this connection Kema, the Mauritian lady attending to guests' needs at the bar (and restaurant) must be particularly mentioned. To wrap up, Sheraton Catania is undoubtedly the best choice for anyone visiting Catania and the surrounding area. You won't be disappointed. Lsat but not the least, I am Lifetime Gold Member and I may ensure you that my status was wholeheartedly recognized by the Hotel Management (upgrade plus special amenities complimentary offered)

Un buon albergo, una buona localizzazione.
Personale cordiale, gentile, molto professionale in particolare quelli del mare/piscina e quelli della reception.
La pulizia delle camere lascia a desiderare (manca un controllo)
Praticamente Assente il coordinamento del personale del ristorante e del bar (gentilissimi, educati, volenterosi, ma senza una direzione)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Giuseppe Struttura eccellente
Per le sue caratteristiche, per i servizi offerti, per la qualità della cucina proposta, per la sua ubicazione molto bella (a ridosso del mare), lo Sheraton Catania costituisce punto di riferimento per tutti quegli Hotels che, in Sicilia, intendano essere effettivamente al top di gamma.

L'hotel è davvero confortevole ed all'altezza delle migliori aspettative. La cucina, poi, è superlativa: lo Chef è in condizione di competere con i cuochi più "stellati". Pulizia, organizzazione generale, cortesia e professionalità dello staff sono gli "atout" di questo hotel, davvero ottimo.
