Here is a very short summary of what we liked / disliked in Casina di Grotta during our 5day stay there in September:

Advantages:
- the place with atmosphere - old mansion with stylish interiors, surrounded by olive gardens,
- beautiful sights from courtyard and swimming pool area,
- great swimming pool with small jacuzzi,
- horse and donkey living close to the main building,
- 15-minute drive to nice beaches,
- very tasty and plentiful breakfast,

Disadvantages:
- small windows in rooms, which makes them rather dark,
- very narrow, curved road leading to the property, dusty in the final part,

Reccommended choice if you want to spend peaceful time by the swimming pool or visit Ragusa, Modica, Scicli or Noto and prefer being 'close to nature' rather than vivid nightlife.

we stayed here for 3 days in September, 2 parents and our 21 year old son, and loved it. Our accommodation was spacious and very nicely furnished, well maintained and very clean. The grounds, the pool, the eating and other facilities are beautiful and all are in great shape, obviously being well maintained. Our host was very helpful with suggestions for meals and activities in the area. Breakfast had all of the usual components, but with fresh fruit, a nice assortment of local cheese, and interesting breads/cakes. All in all this was the perfect place to start our holiday in Sicily - close enough to local sights, great restaurants and the beach if we wanted to head off for a few hours, but peaceful and completely restful when we wanted to just relax and enjoy the pool and grounds.

I stayed here at the beginning of June and it was wonderful. Great facilities, swimming pool, fully fitted kitchen that guests can use, barbecue area, scenic views, lovely gardens and beautiful rooms. The guest house is in a court yard setting, and very picturesque, the rooms are great with comfortable double beds, air con and nice and clean. The swimming pool was superb for relaxing and taking in the views. Franco and Carmela who own the guest house, were wonderful to me when I was ill unfortunately on the last day of our trip, assisting with medication that I needed. They were very warm and friendly and extremely helpful - nothing was too much for them. Would definately stay here again, you obviously need a car, but the beach and ammenities are just a short drive away.

We stayed at Grotta di Ferro in November 2010 with our daughter (17 years old). Breathtaking view on the surrounding nature landscapes and the sea. Isolated enough to enjoy serenity and relax during your stay. Swimming pool always accessible. Excellent Breakfast offered with genuine and typical local produced food. In spite of the late season we were able to spend some time at the closest beach of Marina di Ragusa. The owners Franco and Carmela are very kind and helpful, making you stay as feeling at home. Don't forget to ask Franco to advice for the best restaurants and trattorie of the surroundings (mozzarella cheese, ricotta, fish ... ). Wireless Internet connection was always available.

We spent 4 nights there during our 15-day holiday in Sicily and it was perfect. Franco, the owner, was so kind and helpful with restaurant recommendations and reservations. He even lent us chairs and parasol for the beach! The room was big and beautiful, with air conditioning and an excellent bathroom. The swimming pool was an oasis on hot scorching middays. Breakfast was superb, I still remember the ricota croissants!!! Very near the beach and beautiful places like Ragusa Ibla and Scicli.
