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.

Hotel Isola Bella has the most stunning view from the ocean-facing balconies and is a great location to get down to the little Isola Bella beach or over to the gondola (3 euros each way and running until 1am) up to Taormina. There are a few simple shops, restaurants and bars along the road but up the gondola is where you will find much more. The pool is quiet and relaxing and you are always able to get some shade as well as sun. The hotel staff could not be more helpful and were quick to arrange us a new room when our air conditioning stopped working. Breakfast is simple but it does the job and again you have the option to sit at the beautiful balcony to enjoy it. Finally, there is a 24hr bar in the lobby - its small, drinks only and run by the reception staff but its ideal for a nightcap.

Thanks to all the excellent friendly staff .
Great choice of breakfast hotel following all COVID precautions.
Clean hotel with best view of isola bella even from the pool.
Close to cable car to taormina opens 8am to 1am €3
Did try the steps up and down 20 😓😓minutes to top of road 30 minutes to centre once is enough not lit for access at night.
Got the bus from Catania airport and taxi to hotel €15 from bus terminal .
Went to hotel lido for the day food was amazing €15 for 2 beds and brolly picked up and dropped off.
Taormina is nice but a week is enough menus seemed to be the same in resteraunts but will try Cefalu next year.

OK honest review, for a start this is a 3 star hotel, so, breakfast is continental its fine no complaints room was good cleaned every day great view of the island and beach, good pool area, great location close to beach and cable cars to take u up into taormina, staff were excellent nothing was any trouble very informative with trips, excursions etc. OK the hotel is a little tired on the outside but then again we were in covid for 2+ years, overall we had a great time, beautiful place lots to see and do, transport to and from airport right outside the hotel, was our first time in sicily and thanks to all the staff we had a super holiday, thanks again. micky&zoe gilmore Co.

Absolutely loved our stay at hotel Isola Bella, a little dated yes but all the staff lovely, friendly and willing to help in any way. We paid for a sea view and wow, l know you don’t go on holiday to stay in your room but our early morning coffee and our evening glass of wine before we went out justified paying a little extra. We didn’t find the road noise bothersome once we had the shutters down. We found isola Bella beach a little crowded as so beautiful but we found another beach further up opposite the cable car up to town, still as lovely and quieter. Taormina is a beautiful little town once your up there, lots of nice bars, although the drinks were a little expensive, and places to eat and wonderful churches, we saw 2 weddings as we were having a coffee, felt privileged! Breakfast was fine, plenty of choice, cold cuts of cheese and hams, scrambled eggs and bacon as well as fruit, cereals, yogurts and croissants. We hired a scooter for a couple of days and did some of the small villages one day and did the godfather trail the next which was amazing, think we managed all the places they filmed with stunning views. Would definitely recommend staying in Taormina and Isola Bella hotel.

Really love this hotel, the setting is beautiful with wonderful views of the bay and sea front. The staff are all extremely helpful and will go the extra mile to assist you in any way possible. Our room on the top floor had a fabulous terrace, however I understand the rooms and views at the back of the hotel or down in the basement are not as impressive, as others have said. The room itself was a bit small, as was the bathroom but you don’t stay in your room all day so we didn’t mind. It was nice enough!
The breakfasts were okay and it’s lovely to sit in the terrace in the morning (although beware of the wasps, there were loads everyday when we were there although not purely the fault of the hotel).
We used the shuttle to go to the hotel’s beach once, it was a wonderful beach however the sea was a bit too wild for my liking and you couldn’t really swim, so we tended to visit the local beaches. I’m not sure if this is the case normally, as I haven’t seen any other review mentioning it.

I spent nine nights at this hotel recently. I was allocated a single room which was tiny and dark with a reduced size single bed. However the worst part of it was the bathroom which was so small and I couldnt actually use the shower as I couldn't turn around in it. When I complained about this I was told that it was a standard size single room. I made my booking through Love Holidays who did very little to help me resolve the situation and I was left with no choice but to transfer to a double room at extra cost to me. I feel very strongly that to class this as standard size is a complete misrepresentation of the facts and Love Holidays should not be marketing it as such. It made for a very unpleasant start to my holiday. The staff at the hotel were amenable and gave me useful information about the resort and travelling in the area

Don’t stay here if you can’t sleep in a club. At the beach there are a hotel and the music from there is so loud that you can’t sleep at this hotel. It feels like you at at the club and not in your bed. Even it’s a Sunday the party goes on. If you go to this hotel, bring the world’s best earplugs. The shower in the room is very small.

Very helpful and nice staff with 24 hour service.
To be in Italy the breakfast buffet was superb with scrambled eggs, bacon. sausage, ham, salami, chess, 4 different types of croissants, cereals, yogurt etc.
Good location with fantastic view over Isola Bella island and near restaurants.
Room was good with a large balcony.
WiFi was also working good
Pool area was good with excellent sun beds and umbrellas.
The only bad thing was the shower with poor pressure
Well spent money

Please do not go unless you value incredible views and fantastic customer service. Yes, the rooms are tired , outdated, shower is ridiculously small, pillows are lumpy,however, what more than makes up for that is first class customer service, views and yes views again. Cleanliness,really good. Pool area, well again probably due an update but again fantastic views. Thank you everyone who made my holiday so fabulous. I have been to Sicily a few times before, and especially loved it this time due to the unique setting. Unless I wanted to explore the east side of Sicily on my next visit I would definitely book this hotel again. Solo travelling and not put out the back, single room with balcony and sea views
