We could not decide whether to stay near the beach or near the old town Taormina initially. Glad to find Mendolia because we think it's the best location. 10 minutes away from the cable car and just across from Isola Bella. For a big family traveling with children, we recommend booking their suite on the 3rd floor, you will have... More

The hotel is in a perfect location to Isola Bella Beach, stairs to the beach are opposite the hotel (the stairs are not for the faint hearted!) and there is a balcony with a lovely view. We booked directly through their website so had full use of the sun lounges, parasols and towels which nicely avoided lying on the rocks.... More

This hotel has rooms with stunning views of Isola Bella, it is literally opposite the main stairs down onto the beach and a few minutes walk from the cable car that will take you up into Taormina old town (cobbled streets full of boutiques, beautiful restaurants & bars...just take your credit card ;) Also the old town is where the...

Located away from the centre of Taormina this little 2-story hotel has a lovely view of Isola Bella. The benefit to the location is that it is right by the beach. The draw back is the limited number of restaurants and shops. Most of the restaurants and shops are in the centre of Taormina, just a short cable car ride... More

We took a 4 bed room. The room was very nice with a balcony. Amazing view of the beach and Bell Isola. Walking distance from the beach and from the cable car to the old city. There is no parking around so the hotel offers daily parking at the parking lot near the Funivia for about 12euros a day if... More

Still a great appartment with value for money. It's clean but basic but your reservation on the beacht with your bed and parasol is great. Your on walking distance from the kabel to Taormina, restaurants and shops are around you with direct vieu on Iso La bella

Very basic hotel. Small beds, and they are not very comfortable. Small balcony. Small rooms. The owner is not very friendly. The phrase "nothing is too much trouble" cannot be applied here. "Everything is a little, sometimes a lot, of trouble" would be more apt. It is close to the beach, Isola Bella, the reason for two stars instead of... More

Review related to the Beach Lido on Isola Bella beach. Good food BUT buy food for take away as if one uses the tables on the beach side, the cost of food rises considerably. One can use the tables designated Self Service, which are at the inner part and are not served by any waiters.

This hotel is in a great location with a beautiful view. The breakfast was a feast. Mattress was a little firm but my husband likes it that way. The 130 steps to the beach are not for everyone, especially coming back up. We had been traveling for 3 weeks and stopped here for 2 nights before flying back home. We... More

Mendolia is a small cosy hotel with a perfect view over the Isola Bella and beach. The breakfast is very tasty for a 3 star hotel, good cappuccino, home made pastry, fresh juice and local cheese and salumi. The hotel has a private beach, free for hotel guests(unless you book on booking.com 😕). And guess what? We booked on booking!!... More
