The Aloha d'Oro hotel is open year-round. It was built in 1968, in front of the sea, with materials and techniques that are typical of the old farmhouses around Etna, in a typical Mediterranean style. Ownership and management are both characteristically local. The Aloha hotel faces the sea of Mt Etna and the magnificent Ulysses Riviera. The Regional Spa is within walking distance, as well as the beautiful city centre of the baroque city Acireale.
