“Didn't want to leave”
Reviewed 18 September 2010

Located right above the beach, this hotel is perfect. 24 rooms makes the service impecable. Attentive to all our questions and great information for everything we wanted to do . The rooms are big, clean and new. Each with a walkout balcony. Located on the main street above the beach, you can't hear the traffice below. They will park your car for you and get it when you need it. The pool on top is quiet and relaxing. Breakfast is fresh and good as well. They have fresh squeezed Sicilian Oranges. If you stay in Taormina, stay here.

Spent the last 3 nights of our honeymoon here. The staff was the most attentive and helpful that we encountered on our 2 week trip. Room was clean and sunny with a private balcony and a gorgeous ocean view (which all rooms have), the breakfast space had a lovely view of Isola Bella, the pool had plentiful lounge chairs. Both the rocky public beach and lounge chair-laden pay beaches are across the street and the cable car to hilltop Taormina is a 5 minute walk around the corner.

The hotel was perfect for the trip. Starting from the (courtesy) welcome Prosecco bottle. The staff was very kind, the location is a good point because it´s in front of the main beach view of the city (Isolabella) and a few meters from the Funicular that takes to the center os the city.

Panaramic and breathtakinng although simple words cannot do it justice. Taormina and indeed this hotel in Isolabellla is a hidden gem the italian holiday makers are understandibly keeeping secret from the rest of the world. This hotel is one of the best weve stayed at and there have been many far more expensive and with higher star ratings. Aside from the amazing views which never get old, the experience is a perfect mix of authenticity, style and class with luscious food and exceptional hospitality by all staff but notably lovely Liliana on reception who oozes helpfulness and charisma and Gabrielle and the other restarant staff who bend over backwards to ensure your every indulgent need is no only satisfied but exceeded. The only bad thing about this hotel is that we have to say arivadechi to it!

We stayed from the 8th August for 2 weeks although we had such a great time it seemed more like 2 days! Reception was outstanding (the Australian lady, sorry I forgot your name so soon) as indeed were every member of staff we had dealings with, cleaning staff included, always smiling and very helpful.
The view from the rooms, terrace bar/breakfast area and rooftop pool were to die for.
I note that one reviewer mentioning how expensive it was to eat/drink out in Taormina. Although we did go up there on several occasions it was in the day and we spent our evenings closer to the hotel. There are plenty of restaurants, 3 almost immediately across the road from the hotel. The road is busy and quite unnerving at first. The Sicillians just seem to ignore the traffic and expect them to stop or go around them. It seemed to work and after a few days we were acting in the same cavalier fashion.
We found that dinner with a litre of house white cost between 40 and 50 euros which we thought quite reasonable. Our favourite restaurant was about 10 minutes walk away and was called the U Schiticchiu. The owner and his wife were very friendly and on our last night gave us a complimentary dessert, not something I usually bother with but it was some kind of lemon cake and was gorgeous. My wife had a seafood pizza one night and in her opinion was the best she has ever had, try it. Its right opposite the hotel Esperia, if you turn left on leaving the Panoramic follow the road down into town then back up a slight climb passing the American bar and a small store (incidentally the store was very useful if you wanted cheese, salami, ham, tomatoes and bread etc. Once again very friendly staff.) On your right was a small hotel called the Gallodoro, it was a budget hotel but had a lovely garden where you could enjoy a drink or two before dinner.
There is a place called La Pigna down on the beach near the cable car, great view but we didn't enjoy dinner there quite so much.
Beer in the hotel is 4 euros for a small bottle but the bar next door was 3.50 for a large draft. A very interesting place to sit awhile.........check it out, you will see what I mean!
Apart from the usual trips, Etna etc we spent one day walking up in the hills above Castelmola and ended up at Mount Venere. Absolutely stunning views but do take plenty of water, very little shade to be had up there.
All in all a wonderful place to visit and one of our best ever holidays.

First time I have made a comment on Trip Advisor and can only echo the comments of previous people who have stayed at the hotel.

Firstly, the hotel is in a lovely location, at the bottom of Taormina by the sea but near to the cable car to take you up to the main town and its restaurants and bars. The rooms offer nice views from the balcony and nice to have air conditioning that works really well.

The staff are really friendly and catered for all our needs both at lunch time and when we had an evening drink at the hotel.

Breakfast offered a good choice which our daughter enjoyed, especially the chocolate croissants. They were just great.

The swimming pool area is great.. Would loved to have been able to have it shipped back to the UK.

Nothing else to say really as its already been said before but to thank all the hotel staff for a great stay. Hopefully will be visiting again in the future.
