Experience a stay like no other at the distinguished Borgo Pantano, a beautiful manor farm erected over 150 years ago and restored in 2009. The hotel is in the peaceful area of Cozzo Pantano, roughly 7km outside the inner city of Syracuse. The attention to detail exuding from the building reveals the passion and knowledge the owners have of the area, making it obvious the property is family run. The Borgo Pantano is split into two sections, with both sets of rooms encapsulating the bucolic charm of south east Sicily with its choice in minimalist design and locally sourced furniture, manufactured by Sicilian artisans. Guests can enjoy strolls through the verdant green gardens, whilst stopping to take a dip in the large swimming pool. Given the clear show of appreciation for Sicilian culture and heritage, it is no surprise that the hotel can organise a shuttle service to Syracuse centre; here you can gain a further understanding of the origins surrounding this diverse island by visiting some of the top attractions, like the Greek Theatre.
The hotel has 32 rooms (official rating 4 star).

This was one of the most wonderful resorts I've stayed at in my life. What a terrific get-away. Be advised that it is not near anything, and you would need a car to go anywhere. But if you want a peaceful time in a lovely country unfussy place, with superb staff and food to die for....this is it! The rooms are not gigantic nor are they fancy, but our room (number 116) had a very good shower--better than all in Sicily and with better pressure, the best towels we had encountered in all of Sicily, many good products, large desk, fridge, lots of hangars, very good wifi and a lovely netted bed. The grounds were ultra charming, with a large pool, couches to recline on etc. Check the photos. The only drawback is that the bathroom lighting was a bit dim and I don't believe the dining room is accessible, unless I missed something. The breakfast is EXTRAORDINARY. I will attach photos. It was a buffet like I have never seen before, presided over by the warm, friendly, talented Lucia. I called her "Saint" Lucia. You will never again have a breakfast like this. It was a work of art. I believe she and her crew start baking at 4am. I would come to this hotel just for the breakfast. We also had an amazing dinner there, pasta with eggplant, zucchini parmesan, potato croquettes, sea bass, vegetables and semi-freddo--all very imaginatively presented by a fantastic staff. Someone is doing something right!!!!!

Sicily offers many surprises including this lovely resort hotel open from late March through mid November. Each room is dedicated to an Italian poet and provides all the amenities of a modern resort in a Villa setting. The grounds are gorgeous with beautiful flowers and trees, a huge pool with a beach entrance on one side, and covered ramadas and hammocks surround this beautiful area. Hot tub and spa services are also available. The exquisite meals provided on site were unmatched as was the service! A car is required as it is located outside the city but the drive is worth it!
