Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Before our trip to Italy this year (and my communications with FuFu (the owner) to make our reservations) my wife and I knew nothing about Sicily and even less about the Taormina area. And, now, we have had the wonderful experience of having spent 2 nights in the area, staying at a B&B right on the beach, and using the easy (and inexpensive) public bus transportation to the main town of Taormina (no need to drive). Da Concettina was everything that we had hoped that it would be. It was very clean with an en-suite shower and toilet (slightly small but totally functional). Our apartment had a comfortable bed (large enough for two people to sleep well), a refrigerator, TV, AC, and a balcony (Baia Blu Apartment). Our breakfasts were served downstairs at a street side table in front of the small Tabachi: owned by the family. The breakfasts were satisfying; meats, cheese, cereal, fresh bread, yogurt, juices, fruit, and coffee (of our choosing; cappuccino, espresso, or regular). FuFu provided the hostess interface during our visit and did a very good job of making us feel welcome and well cared for. We loved it and we took advantage of the nice private balcony of our apartment for afternoon cheese and wine breaks (the refrigerator was invaluable for storing our perishables). In addition to the amenities, the B&B is well located with easy access to a public bus that provides inexpensive transportation to and from Taormina and is within walking distance of many restaurants (for any lunch or dinner needs). We took the bus to Taormina twice one day (morning touring, back to the B&B for lunch, and then back again for dinner). The Taormina area was a short stop for us (we were heading to several areas of Sicily and were therefore on a limited time schedule). But, it was way more than that. It turned out to be one of the highlights of our time in Sicily. We are very happy that Taormina and Da Concettina was one of our choices!

We spent four nights here and found it a decent value and reasonably comfortable stay. Apartment largely as advertised excepting breakfast is not included. Very clean, but sheets and towels were quite worn and rough feeling and there were no extra linens. Though advertised as non smoking, there was an ashtray in the kitchen and the apartment smelled a bit as though cigarettes have been smoked there in the past. The bathroom had a strong sulfur like smell such that we kept the door closed. We stayed in the apartment on the top floor and the view was lovely- unfortunately the beach is covered with trash and this kept us from enjoying an afternoon swim or even a walk on the beach itself. Fufu advised us as to local restaurants and markets, all within walking distance. Apartment is equipped with Wifi and assorted guide books and maps that made planning all the easier. Easy access to highway and Taormina, though highway is under construction. If headed toward Catania or Etna, best to take the local road to Naxos where you can access the highway without being turned around only to backtrack and pay additional tolls. Street parking seems readily available in the off season and we found a free place to park every day we were there.

We (family of 4) stayed for 1 week at Fufu`s & Pinuccio and we felt like home:) We had the front sea view appartment with Breakfast and loved that we chose to stay there. The hosts are so welcoming, actually, Fufu came to greet us at the train station (we arrived from Cefalu), Fufu speaks French and english and just made things much easier to organise our days. The apartment is very clean with a kitchen and a washing machine (very practical), AC, TV. The Location is ideal right in front of the beach with an amazing view (exactly what you see in the picture), bus stop to go to Taormina (1. 10 Euros per adult, kids don`t pay) and it takes 15 min to get there, Bus Hop on Hop Off right there as well, markets, restaurants. The breakfast is very generous and delicious. Fufu takes the time to ask you what you`d like. WE were happy to be away from the very busy crowd of Taormina! Do not hesitate to stay there, it`s a great find! stayed from 06/25/2018 to 07/02/2018

I stayed here for a few days in October after a work trip to Catania. Cristina and Pinucchio were lovely and also very helpful – sending all the info I needed in advance, responding to messages, and then once I was there offering anything needed. I stayed on the first floor at the front of the building: two simple, very clean rooms with a little balcony looking out over the sea (great wifi too). Every morning I had breakfast in the cafe/bar downstairs -- they always gave it some nice touch -- and then walked across the road to the beach. Just perfect. There are many bars, restaurants, mini markets, etc, close by, Mazzeo / Letojanni is a very nice place to spend some time. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful stay in the Da Concettina apartement. Christina and Pinucchio were always very polite and helpful and were extra lovely to our daughter! There is this very cosy shop nearby, where you can get perfect breakfast. And the beach was of course also great!

We recently stayed for a very enjoyable week in one of the Da Concettina apartments. It was clean and very comfortable and had mostly everything you would need for self catering. Nearby are some good restaurants/Trattorias and small supermarkets within walking distance plus a bus stop for nearby Taormina. Fufu and Pinuccio are very friendly, helpful and welcoming and the coffee at their cafe is of course excellent! The sea views and panorama are amazing and the pebble beach is just over the road outside.We will definitely wish to stay at Da Concettina again.

We stayed here two nights in late May, and our experience was wonderful. We had the room on the top floor (absolutely worth the stairs!), and the view from our balcony was perfect. The apartment was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Our hosts were so kind and helpful -- Fufu had great recommendations for places to see and dine. Pinuccio fixed us delicious espresso and cappuccinos both mornings while we sat on his shop's patio -- a lovely spot to watch the produce and fish vendors sell their wares. It was a short ride into Taorimina, but we were glad to be in this smaller beach community.

We stayed at Da Concettina for a second time in May 2017, 4 years after our first visit. We stayed in the top floor suite/apartment (Bella Vista) this time instead of the 2nd floor suite apartment we enjoyed last trip. Everything was perfect -- well equipped with everything you could possibly need, super clean and an incredible beach/ocean view. We also returned because we love the hospitality of Kristina (Fufu) and Pinnuchio. They treat us (and probably everyone) like dear friends and even gave us a parting gift that we will treasure forever. We highly recommend staying here, just minutes away from busy Taormina, in a more relaxing environment literally steps from the beach. Easy walking distance to shopping and restaurants. We never had problem finding street parking right on the street outside the B&B and it was an easy location for day trips. I'm not sure if they have online booking or not. We always send an email and they are on top of everything. So, if they don't do online, please don't be afraid to go a different direction and give them a try. A quick email is all you need to send to inquire on availability and get set up for a holiday you will remember forever.

Dear friends, thank you very much for adding your excellent words after visiting us for the second time!!! We have been really pleased to meet you again here at our B&B, it seems Yesterday when you came the first time and we found you with the same attitude and affection...very friendly! We are glad that you liked the top floor and the great view from the balcony. We usually like treating all the guests like old friends if they agree, more or less all of them have the same treatment but with a little part of the guests there is a special feeling...like the one that we have with you. Thank you for the recommendations about how to be in touch with us, we hope that travellers will find us if they wish to stay here. So...see you in the future. Fufu and Pinuccio

We stayed here five years ago and wanted to see if they were still as good as before. YES they are! Great little place to stay and enjoy the ocean right across the street! Great hosts and breakfast is served at their cafe. Good location to visit Taormina by local bus. Great restaurants within walking distance. Stay here you will be happy.

The location of the apartment is excellent. It has a view of the beach and is just on the edge of the shops, so quiet enough and minutes away from shops. Fufu and Pinuccio were great hosts. Fufu recommended places for us to visit and helped with public transport which was both cheap and regular. Pinuccio taught us a new phrase every day! We bought our breakfast from the bar and carried it upstairs to eat on our balcony. The local greengrocer and bakers drove up in their vans daily so you could buy fresh fruit and bread! Really felt part of the community. The restaurants nearby were very reasonable and we got into the local way of eating which was very late!
