My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights for the start of our tour of Sicily. First things first, the views are fantastic. We paid for a sea view and it was so worth it. Amazing view every morning. Very helpful staff on reception who spoke very good English. (Our Italian isn't great) room was basic but the sea...

Hesitant between 3 and 4 star rating. The location is ideal, with close walk to the sea. The pool on the 3rd floor is great. If you have a room without a view, which is most of 1st floor and some of 2nd floor, then it is a disapointment. Why 3 stars, the parking (free) is limited to 8 cars,...

I agree about the views, but only if you are lucky enough to get a room with a sea view, otherwise you may be staring at someone else's balcony at very close range, particularly if you are in a single room. Definitely past its best (when ever that may have been). Shutter wouldn't work so just had very thin curtain,...

Yes, this hotel has great views and clean rooms but the food ranges from poor to dreadful. Senior staff VERY unhelpful. Breakfast included terrible machine made coffee, stale bread and low quality cold meats. The dinner (fixed menu with choice of mains and starters) was not edible. We struggled with our first course, my soup was highly salty and I...

Beautiful spot by the sea, but at least a half hour walk into Taormina (steep) or the shuttle bus which stops at 7pm. Otherwise taxi is 20 euros. The cable car which was mentioned in other reviews has been OUT OF ORDER since September! All in all, it's costing us much more than if we would have stayed in town....

Wonderful views combined with a great large room combined with a lovely typically local decor (see the mosaic headboard photo!-) made the bedroom a lovely welcoming place to rest up after a long day of travel to arrive in Taormina. When you add excellent staff and a great breakfast into the mix it makes this a hotel that will be...

Fabulous view from our fifth floor balcony over the bay. Hotel itself looked a bit tired, seems to have lost a star down to 3 star. Breakfast was adequate. Staff were very nice and very helpful, pool really nice.only parking for ten cars in hotel grounds.
