I must stress there is not enough space to compliment the staff of this hotel,, the service and atmosphere from the moment you check in makes you feel welcome ..Thank you All !!
The hotel is located in a perfect location , the balcony views of Isola Bella are as the post card images , 6am walk down to breakfast room and meet the most generous happiest staff member of all Gabriela !! Top Man my coffee was ready as soon as I walked in ,, then the second one was ready to take to my room to drink on the balcony viewing the amazing miles of clear sea...then as we strolled down for breakfast table was set and coffee was on stand by ,, or the Bucks Fizz chill in on ice - if you fancy it..
The hotel is very clean , breakfast was to a very high standard buffet with all cold meats and breads cheeses, sweets ,toast , eggs ,fruit was available all day also the hot buffet of sausages,bacon tomatoes etc...
drinks coffe , teas , and all the juices you required ..to the start the day ...
The terrace pool was superb with great views , no issues with sun beds , showers available on the decking area to keep cool,,as well as a bar for cold & hot drinks as and when required..
5 mins walk and you reach the cable cars which take you up to Taormina centre which has a wide variety of restaurants, bars & shops galore ,, 3 euros per person each way on the cable cars however buy a week pass for 30 euro's and go up and down as many times as you like !! obviously depends on how long you are staying,
Mount Etna tour with a private wine tasting at Gambino family wine plantation is a must !!
the wine tasting was not like any other they would leave you the bottle to taste at your leisure by the end we had a bottle of each wine they produced ( over 5 varieties with lots of nice cheeses and meats to really taste which wine went well with which dish )..
The beach is 5 mins walk from hotel although mainly pebbles buy suitable water shoes 5 euros from the nice man on the steps down and you will be fine ,,,however been mindful of the steep steps "going down not an issue" climbing back up after a day of Kayaking is proper hard work on the legs !! but worth it ..
Plenty of bars and restaurants on beach area providing drinks and food ..
We would like to thank the staff for the wonderful time we had in this great hotel! Their friendliness was incredible! Especially Gabriela nothing was any trouble with world cup footy on --- the TV would be turned around for me to view on the comfortable terrace furniture area with the beers flowing without the need for me to ask. ..once he knew your favourite tiple the drinks would come plentiful,, even if you had not ordered which made you feel welcome each drink came with some wonderful sicilian dish of bruschetta or olives , peanuts , crisps ,pineapple etc... ,,,I would fully recommend this hotel to anyone as the service was 5*
if i was to pick a negative there is no gym however after talking to the manager apparently planning permission is in place and is just waiting on the legal sign off -- being Italy nothing is of urgency !!
However the steps to beach and back make up for the exercise !!!
The area Taormina centre is the perfect location for families and couples as you have the bars and restaurants , shops and culture Greek Amphitheater very close by and also if you want the late nights cable cars are very handy - last 1 leaves around 1am back down ,however taxis are available from the top if you do miss the last car down !!
Must also try the Champagne bar on the main strip each drink is complimented with a plate of sushi on the house ...
We were a family of 3 -- We would all recommend this hotel to all our family & friends and will definitely stay at the Panoramic Hotel on our next trip to Sicily .
