“Trip to Sicily”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I chose this hotel because of the excellent photos which suggested a hotel larger than it is. The hotel only has around 20+ rooms and is very modern and clean with some unique features e.g. room access. There is no restaurant so only meals available are breakfast (which is excellent) and light snacks. There is no real bar either so expect to be out of the hotel in the evening, The pool area is very nice and the staff are extra friendly. Nice location by the beach and you reach the town via nearby cable car

Room Tip: All are sea view

The Panoramic Hotel is located on the coastal road at Taormina, which is very much a tourism industry town. This is the national road SS114. Be aware that this road is below the town and has a range of hotels, restaurants and snack shops on it. The town of Taormina is located up above the Panoramic Hotel level. The good restaurants and nightlife are in the upper town. Access to the town from the Panoramic Hotel is by a short 3 minutes cable car or by taxi or for those with a good heart and good walking shoes a steep stepped climb! The walk back down from the town is an easy one.
The panoramic Hotel is 4-star, with approx 40 rooms. The hotel is an excellent location for beach access. It looks out across to the Bay of Taormina and the little island called Isola Bella. The hotel is very attractive with great rooms looking out across the bay. It has a superb breakfast that will nearly let you skip lunch! I'm happy to recommend it as a place to stay. The rooftop pool is very good.

Room Tip: The road outside is not noisily trafficked so the rooms all facing out across the bay are excellent.

We were in Sicily for a long weekend and I picked the hotel after reading several reviews and we were not disappointed. It is in the ideal location over looking the bay and Isola Bella. It is in close proximity to the cable car up to Taormina (3.50 euros each way), which is just a short walk around the corner and a great family run restaurant, Ristorante Castelluccio just past the cable car station on your right hand side. Back to the hotel, it has excellent facilities, including a gorgeous rooftop pool with plenty of sun loungers and terrace on the floor below. The buffet breakfast was perfect with lots of choice and to be able to sit on the terrace and enjoy the morning sun and a good coffee.

The rooms are also excellent with a stunning balcony on which we enjoyed several glasses of prosecco while watching the sun go down. The staff were excellent from organising our airport transfer to giving us some handy advice. The service was impeccable.

I would highly recommend the hotel to anyone wanted to discover this area of Sicily.

Very nice upscale hotel with private patio view of Mediterranean. Hotel was very clean and modern. Full breakfast was a treat on top floor patio. Parking garage was attached to hotel. Only complaint is noisy street but that was not noticeable when patio door was closed. Will definitely return.

We spent three nights in the Panoramic Hotel in Taormina. The hotel is in a great location overlooking the beach and just a short distance from the cable car ride up to the town, which is fun The room was functional with everything that was needed. The main attraction was the wonderful view over the beach from our balcony. The best things about this hotel apart from its great location, were the staff, who were so friendly and helpful. The little extra's like the free bottle of prosecco (not sure if this is offered in high season), nibbles with our drinks and cakes with our cups of tea. All greatly appreciated. It's always the little things that make a big difference.

Although this hotel is not located in Taormina proper, it has arguably a much better view, and getting to Taormina is quick, cheap, fun, and doesn't require a car, taxi or bus - simply walk five minutes to the cable car, pay a couple of euros and next thing you know, you are there.

The hotel offers views (from every room, I think) of a very picturesque bay that cannot be seen from anywhere in Taormina. The bay contains an island, beaches, and boat excursions.

The hotel itself was very clean, in very good repair, and the staff was very professional. There is a bar on the fourth floor, and a pool on the fifth. On our ten day trip to Sicily, this was probably the most memorable hotel we stayed in.

Room Tip: I think all rooms have a balcony with a superb view of the bay.
