Wow, it is all about the location! At the end of the road / boulevard, directly at the lava rocks beach! Really beautiful! Access to the sea by stairs, and the sea is beautiful for snorkelling. Many sunbeds and many quit places to enjoy the sun. The hotel is old, old fashioned and need some maintenance, but the ambiance is so nice. It is like to live j. The 70ies again. Rooms were ok, beds fantastic. Pool wonderful and breakfast was great. Loved the staff, so friendly. I miss it already!

We first visted this hotel approximately 4 years ago and were quite impressed. Sadly, not so this time. We were on a half-board basis and in view of the previous level of cusine 4 years ago we were looking forward to a range of authentic Sicilian dishes. This did not materialise. Breakfast was adequate but the evening meal was average. Unbelieveably, it seems that Vaping is allowed in the Dining Room during the evening meal as one couple openly Vaped without censure. Our room had a balconey on the first floor and the views were breathtaking. It was cofortable and kept clean. However smoking is allowed on the balconeys and as, after a few days there, we gained a chain-smoking neighbour this was highly unpleasant. The staff were helpful, friendly and did their best to make our holiday enjoyable. Overall, a quiet, enjoyable holiday in a quiet hotel on an Island we adore.

Located just at the end of the main resort (opposite end to the train station) this beautiful hotel is tucked quietly on the sea front. A wonderful sea water pool surrounded in plenty of sun beds and direct access into deep sea via steps. The location is perfect with a good selection of restaurants on the nearby strip, all within walking distance. A bus stop at the end of the lane to take you to the surrounding resorts and Taormina train station (taxis are VERY expensive in Sicily). the rooms are beautifully decorated with plenty of space and very clean. We were in Sicily for 2 weeks and travelled about staying in a number of different places. this place was by far the best. It is old and perhaps a little tired but I just felt I was in the middle of a Poirot scene. the staff are very helpful and friendly. If I could single out any particular group it would be reception who couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful in planning and advising on what to do and how to do it. The breakfast had plenty of choice and a selection of freshly cooked eggs, bacon etc. cant comment on the lunch or dinner as we chose to eat out. I would definitely go back and would not hesitate to recommend Arathena Rocks Hotel.
