Well presented - lovely gardens- good pool
Dinner was barely adequate
The staff and the grounds are the best things about Lady Lusya. Our first night happened to be my birthday and they acknowledged that with a complimentary bottle of champagne. They were very kind. The grounds are very beautiful and well manicured. The main house is really nice and rustic. Dinner was good, but nothing really special.
The bed was so uncomfortable. I had a backache after sleeping there for three nights. The shower was too tiny and water ran all over the floor. So I did not enjoy the shower at all and could not wait to get home to my own shower. However there are other rooms with larger showers and I am sure better beds so you may be able to switch rooms.
the swimming pool
poor state of beds and furniture around the pool
Building itself was fabulous. Staff were very friendly. Very relaxed atmosphere. Like a home away from home, but more attractive. Loved coming back to the hotel. Felt like we were coming home.
A bit expensive, but we knew this in advance. Subsequent hotels on our trip made us realise, however, that this place was a bit special. When one goes to Sicily one wants to stay at a hotel which somehow reflects the history and culture of the island. Unlike Lady Lusya, too many hotels on the island follow the American model - too flash, too shiny, too sanitised. The Lady Lusya offered us tradition and history, and this was more important than the expense we had to incur to stay there. A wonderful place.
