The location is just perfect, in front of Isola Bella. Walking up every morning and seeing the most incredible view, was the highlight of our stay. Also, having our sun beds reserved for the entire stay it was a great plus. The breakfast was one of the best we had & the pastry product were simply delicious. Also the breakfast restaurant has the perfect view. The place it’s super clean! The maids are coming 2-3 times a day to your room. I loved this! We really enjoyed our stay and we are thankful to Marco, the resort manager who offered us an upgrade free of charge because we heard the train really loud on our initial room. He was extremely friendly and professional. The only two minuses are the train passing by & the fact that the bungalows are really small. Otherwise, we enjoyed everything!

I chose to stay at La Plage resort for its beach, with a view on the beautiful Isola bela. This is really the strength of this expensive hotel. However, the hotel’s management fails to maintain the beach. Old plastic (bottles, masks) are hanging for ages around the beach. The life guard wipes every morning the old beach chairs (they should be renewed) but fails to clean the dirt on the beach. Really heartbreaking to see such a lack of respect for guests and nature! Other observations: -Rooms are clean but average (small and dark) -hotel’s facilities like gym are often not available for guests due to wedding parties preparations -train passes close by and one can often hear it

We highly value every comment we receive by our guests in order to monitor and improve the quality service we strive to offer. At this regard, we do regret very much to hear that your overall experience did not fully meet your expectations, as all we aim to is to turn every vacation into an unforgettable stay. We are really glad to know that you enjoyed our superb location just at the front of Isola Bella (in 1984 the island was declared an asset of historical and artistic and therefore human heritage). Instead of on the highlighted points, specially cleaning, we inform you that we have immediately increased the shifts of cleaning service of our beach area and we all hope that we can keep our standard as high as the rest of our services. The ratings of our guests are extremely important, as they help us to monitor and improve internal and external services and make our guests' stay truly unique experiences. In reference to the size of your room, please be informed that the resort provides different room's categories according to each guest's preferences and needs and despite the high season, our staff always do its best to meet the guests expectations, offering the chance to change the room or showing an upper category when properly informed and considering the range of rooms categories we provide. The gym, we will certainly review our procedures and standards to avoid future inconvenience. We do really hope to have the chance to welcome you back at our beautiful resort and earn your confidence back. It would be a pleasure for me to personally assist you while visiting us next time. Kindest regards, Marco Luzietti Resort Manager

Really lovely and friendly hotel, right in front of the isola bella and its beach. Informal but v professional, excellent food and service. The highlight is the beach, which is absolutely amazing. Stayed in one of the bungalows, which are a bit small but have a private terrace so not an issue at all. Taormina is v near, and so are Catania, Acireale, Ragazzo and the rosary of towns around the Etna.

After travelling to Italy for many years and finally being allowed back after the pandemic my husband and I booked a trip to Sicily. Having waited for so long we decided to go all out and find a lovely hotel which we thought we had - La Plage Resort Taormina. We arrived late at night and the hotel had arranged a taxi to pick us up - €130 which we thought was expensive but it was an hour or so to drive so agreed. Upon arrival at the hotel we were offered a complimentary glass of Prosecco - which turned out to be a mouthful yet the Italian couple who arrived at the same time got full glasses, but hey it was a free gesture. We were shown around and then taken to our room, very small with two single beds pushed together - the first sign that this was not a 5* hotel worth the price tag of €250 per night!!! We then went down to the beach bar to sit, relax and take in the ambience, which was lovely. We ordered a bottle of wine from the menu which was duly supplied. Upon leaving the beach bar we were shown the tab to sign and the price was €110 yet the menu had said €70??! The waitress simply said ‘I showed you the label before I opened it’ - not great customer service at all! And the wine certainly wasn’t worth €110 in the first place. We stayed our nights in our small, cramped room which had strange curtains outside sectioning off the tiny terrace which only conjured up scenes of entering an abattoir as they were heavy duty plastic - you certainly couldn’t sit outside and enjoy any of the surroundings - maybe a plot to get you in the beach bar for overpriced drinks!! We did however find a hotel a brief 10 minute walk away, much nicer, better atmosphere and what simply was 5* hence we didn’t eat or socialise at La Plage! It was a telling sign at checkout when the front desk didn’t even ask us how our stay was as I would have politely explained a few points to them and what I would have to expected for the cost and the fact that is allegedly 5*s. Needless to say we will not be staying there again when we return to Sicily, which we are planning already as it is a lovely place. Last word of advice - pay the little bit extra and get a proper 5* hotel not a pretend wannabe one!

Dear Guest, thank you for taking the time to address us your concerns about your recent stay at La Plage Resort of Taormina. We highly value our guests’ comments in order to constantly monitor and improve the level of service we strive to offer, I can assure you that we accommodate a number of guests in our hotel and are proud to have the flexibility to meet their requirements, therefore it is extremely disappointing to have let you down in this occasion, since attention to detail is our main focus, based on the Company’s philosophy and service vocation. Our staff daily works with only aim of turning each stay into pleasant experiences, in a suggestive location conceived for those guests looking for relax. Regarding the price of €130 for a taxi Pick you up; we would like to inform you that our five-star Resort is perfectly aligned with the other similar structures nearby, following the same quality standards as all the other Hotels and I can assure you that we follow current market trends, regularly adjusted to maintain competitiveness, especially during peak seasons. Upon arrival at the hotel, we offer all our guests Prosecco, fruit juice, water, herbal teas and more, all free and sorry that it turned out to be a mouthful, no one wants to make distinctions between the Italian couple and other nationalities, the glasses are always filled in the same way and even is a free gesture, we always do it with pleasure and highlighting our sensitivity towards hospitality. Concerning the room category you booked, we can understand that it was not meeting your expectations, you could have made us aware of the discontent and certainly we would have provided for the room change and, what is most regrettable is your opinion as to the bar service. Therefore, while respecting your personal opinions and preferences, we find it to be quite inappropriate to rate our service as poor quality. We have done the necessary research and inspections on the wine case and, we can confirm that the waitress has charged the wine of your choice and has in no way taken advantage of the situation created. Finally, we are sorry to know that what it is always reported as a nice experience by our bar area, being a unique place in front of by Isola Bella, is so negatively described. In closing, may I thank you, once again, for dedicating time to write. While expressing how much we believe in the accurate service provided by our staff, which have always represented our main strength, I trust you will accept that the difficulties you have experienced do not reflect our normal standard. We will always welcome the opportunity to be of service in the future and be able to regain your confidence. Kindest regards, Marco Luzietti Resort Manager

Terrible Beach club. 40€ a long chair and the staff is awful. There are really rude and are not treating customers properly. We went there on our last day in Taormina, it totally ruined it. Avoid this place and go somewhere else where you can have a real service from professionals.
