The property is surrounded by lovely scenery and the grounds are well kept and very nice. The pool was very clean and of good size and dept and the pool area is spacious and comfortable with sunbeds. The staff were very helpful and friendly and always trying their best to accommodate for our needs. The rooms were not so spacious but generally comfortable and clean.
We had dinner twice. The 1st time was a bit disappointing. We then tried it another time during our stay and it was definitely better and good. However to be honest it still didn't meet our standards and we therefore preferred dining out at restaurants in the village of Linguaglossa where we found some restaurants with a much better quality of food. Breakfast was generally good with a moderate selection of food. However portions were limited and most of the days we needed to ask the staff to bring out more bread/milk/ fruit etc as once finished from the table it was not automatically replaced. Needless to say however that we never found any objection from the staff and they always got us was we ask for. Also, the venue organises wedding receptions. During our stay there a wedding reception was held and the pool could not be used in the afternoon/evening time (we were not informed beforehand). The music was quite loud and it only stopped around 1am!! We found this quite disrespectful in general as the loud noise could be heard from all the rooms and it was not even taken into consideration that we had very young children and babies that needed their rest. On another note we requested a cot in our room for our 10 month daughter. This was set up with no problems and was good and clean with bed sheets. However I found it quite unfair to charge us 10 euros extra per night for the cot.
The grounds are beautiful! Rooms were clean and was ideal for the kids. The staff were very helpful.
Although the staff were very helpful, there were things that would not make me go back : Breakfast: fruit was not served on all days, amounts were strict to the number of guests or less, 8 slices of ham, 8 cheese etc...we were constantly asking for some more bread, some more cheese, another croissant, 4 eggs...etc Towels: we had to pay for using pool towels...not a deposit, like in any other hotel in the world. Late checkout: on the last day we had agreed that we vacate the rooms but we could use the facilities and stay a bit longer...after some time the owner changed her mind and wanted us out. We felt that this was not accommodating, especially when we had agreed otherwise and the place was empty so we were not being of any inconvenience to anyone. Pool: pool was cleaned with chemicals during the time where the kids were swimming, so we had to wait around for an hour before using it again. The area is full of beautiful agriturismi so we will look for an alternative next time we visit sicily.
Food was excellent. Surrounding tranquillity was to die for.
WiFi was not available in room
We really like our stay at Borgata Baldassa friendly staff and cleanliness, wifi service , breathtaking views
shower size is very small
Lovely little place within Etna's wine region. You need a car to be able to stay here as it is in the middle of nowhere. We arrived mid-afternoon, during a thunderstorm in August. Unfortunately our room was stull being cleaned by the chamber maid. However, we were able to sit in shelter on our terrace and my husband was able to purchase some of their own produced wine. Once the room was clean and we could move our bags in, the rain had subsided, so we moved to sit around the pool. The pool attendant was very quick to wipe a couple of sunbeds dry for us, although with little sun we only sat by the pool for a short while. The following morning as we were checking out after breakfast we saw some families with children making full use of the large pool area. Our room was on two levels, with the actual bed itself on a mezzanine. Downstairs we had a wardrobe, another couple of beds, table and chairs and bathroom. The grounds within which this is set in, is very pleasant, with small olive groves. We had an evening meal, sat outside under a lovely arbour. The waiter was friendly, efficient, explaining different dishes and wines and our food was lovely. We only stopped here the one night as we were travelling around the area, but worth the one night stop f you are exploring the wineries.
Lighting could've been better in the room.
