If I return to stay in an exquisite place in Taormina - that will be this hotel. Great service, great breakfast, amazing views, spacious room. The only 'disadvantage' of this place is the price but if you can afford it - that's a top notch.

Sometimes you visit a place and wish that you'd booked into another hotel when you look around, but this is the one that you will wish you were in if you stay in any of the others. Located on the beach in Mazzaro Bay, this hotel offers beautiful rooms that mostly overlook the bay and are comfortable to stay in,...

This is a world class hotel! It is perfectly located on a private cove with its own beach. The service is excellent as well as are the amenities. The parking of our rental car was a bit costly, I guess worth it for the quality of the hotel. The only problem was with suite 143 which had a very nasty...

I can't rate this hotel highly enough. However you have to remember that 5 stars on the continent is equivalent to 4 stars in Ireland. Nothing was too much bother for the staff. Any enquiry/request we had was dealt with efficiently and pleasantly from booking restaurants to requesting a kettle for the room! The location is absolutely perfect - breakfast...

We stayed here for 4 nights which was plenty. You must book a sea view room as the back rooms only have a view of a wall and you can't even see if it's sunny outside and are dated with carpet. The sea view rooms are more modern and the views are amazing. The breakfast is very good, as is...

The hotel is in a great location on the beach and steps from the lift to take you to Taormina. The rooms are large with big terraces over looking the sea- very clean!

We spent two nights at the Mazzaro Sea Palace and could not have been more pleased. The staff were so helpful and friendly, the setting was beautiful and the breakfast I think one of the best I've ever seen anywhere.
