“A holiday paradise”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

This hotel has everything the most discerning traveller would desire, FANTASTIC VIEWS over the sea and island, all rooms have superb views… This maybe a 4 x star hotel but your are treated like a 5 star guest. While the hotel does NOT have a general restaurant, there are numerous excellent restaurants very close by. The swimming pool on the 5th Floor is superb and tasteful with a view forever, and for the real beach goers the walk is two minutes to the beach
Overall all members of staff are professional and happy to assist. The breakfast is excellent with a superb selection to suit every taste, including a lovely selection of fruit.
In essence a perfect place to R and R knowing you have every comfort that this superb 4 star hotel can offer

Room Tip: Book on the third floor, but all rooms have magnificent views

My husband and I stayed at the Panoramic Hotel for our first stop in Sicily for our honeymoon. The hotel was very clean, the staff were extremely friendly, and the view of Isola Bella from our balcony was amazing. We enjoyed breakfast each morning, and we had lunch at the hotel almost every day. The sandwiches and salads available were more than enough (and the prices were reasonable) with the larger Italian dinners we ate elsewhere each night. The tram to Taormina is easily accessible, and the beach is only a short walk (down a lot of stairs) away. It was a wonderful start to a fantastic trip.

Room Tip: Third floor was nice because you are higher above traffic noise. Downside is you hear chairs from th...

The Panoramic provided everything we wanted for our weeks stay in Taormina/Mazzaro. We had two rooms, both with fantastic views of Isola Bella. The fourth floor terrace where an excellent breakfast is served has the same view. The hotel is only 5 minutes walk from the cable car up to Taormina town. All the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We had much appreciated recommendations for restaurants and route to the castle, which is closed, but has fantastic views over the whole area. Fantastic place to stay for a perfect holiday. Grazie!

Our family stayed here in May 2014 for our daughter's wedding. The hotel, restaurants and pool areas are clean and tidy. Sheets changed every day. Staff all most helpful and friendly. The views from our balcony over the "Isola Bella" were just unbelievable. Food and drinks in the hotel all reasonably priced. Plenty of local restaurants and bars to choose from.
If staying for a week or more would strongly recommend buying a 7 day pass for the cable car to the top part of the village, we paid 30 euros for a 7 day pass, otherwise each return trip is 6 euros.

Room Tip: Our family had rooms on first, second and third floors, all appeared to be equally good. Two lifts i...

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.
