It has a perfect location, gorgeous rooms, exceedingly pleasant and helpful staff, an elegant terrace for dining and drinks and an amazing Mount Etna view. We did not want to leave! The hotel also arranged a 5-hour tour for four of us to the top of Mount...

The panoramic view from the hotel terrace and most rooms of Mt. Etna high above the Mediterranean is simply breathtaking. Breakfast buffet is amazing and make sure that later in the day you have the Mt. Etna Sizzle drink invented by the head bartender, Alfio. A beautiful hotel that exudes class and distinction with service that is top notch. The...

As with all Belmond hotels, fantastic rooms, food and a beautiful hotel. What sets this apart however is the service which was superb. We travelled with our 6 month old and they couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. The hotel is in a great location with a fantastic view of etna. Would recommend having a drink in the bar...

Went for a nice aperitivo at the terrace first, enjoying the stunning Taormina scenery. Degustation menu was simply perfect, as well as the service. Pricey but certainly worthwhile. Would certainly come back.

I and my wife lived in Nacos but also visited Taormina during our stay at the beautiful Sicily. This is a very good hotel with perfect location. Some rooms have sea views and the hotel has the classic "Grand Hotel" feeling. A fantastic hotel if you want to stay in Taormina! Mats Samaras, Stockholm, Sweden
