Clean and proper hotel nearby to beach and funicular railway to city center. Nice staff and a nice pool area at the hotel. A very good breakfast with a brode asortment for the size of the hotel. The hotel is lokated at a hillside so it is a rather step walk up to the hotel and if you travel by...

I will start with "parking is a problem". But that is the ONLY negative thing I can say about the hotel. Large, clean rooms, swimming pool and a nice continental breakfast are the positive. Staff was friendly and efficient. The reception day clerk (I regret not remembering her name) used to be a tour guide. So she was very helpful...

The view is amongst the best I've ever seen - really it's that good but the hotel is horrendous . Outdated , dirty and it's not in Taormina - it's a 10 min walk to a cablecar which is 3 euro each way up to the town which itself is magnificent. Check in was terrible - gave us the key...

The best things about this hotel is the staff and the views. The entire hotel needs a revamp, fittings are rusted and broken, the frame on the shower in my room has come away from the glass. The poolside bar is supposed to be open from 12 til 6, on the one day that I stayed at the pool it...

Loved this hotel. The location is 5 minutes away from taormina center with the cable car and hotel has a stunning view from sea view rooms. The breakfast was very good however they should make a few changes as it gets boring and limited after two days as everything remains the same. The staff at front desk are very helpful...

I was charged for coffee at Breakfast before I left. I was on Bed and Breakfast and never been to a hotel where they charge for coffee at Breakfast. The breakfast bacon was just strips of fat and the scramble egg never seen like it . Apart from that the sweets and croissants were great.

Me, my wife and 2 children stayed for 3 fabulous nights in late July. We stayed in the family room and what a view it was. Breathtaking! As were the views from everywhere in the hotel. The hotel is great value for money in what is an expensive resort. The staff are all very helpful and have a good command...

We enjoyed 5 nights at the hotel as part of a 10 night holiday in Italy. We booked the hotel because of the views and price compared to others in the area. We were not disappointed with the views, the view from our room was amazing. Management and staff were all friendly and helpful, especially both ladies on reception. Room...
