We arrived in Taormina and were met in the Piazza Del Duomo by the hotel porter who carried our bags some two hundred meters or so, then up a flight of stairs to the Hotel lobby. What a beautiful hotel in a lovely location. We were greeted by Antonio with big smile and a warm welcome. Our room details were confirmed and the hotels facilities explained. Our room was on the Second floor overlooking the Cathedral. Beautiful room, beautiful view. On a B & B basis the hotel provides a Continental style breakfast with an optional cooked menu at no extra cost. Evening meal can be had on the roof top restaurant at an additional cost but well worth it for the quality of food and the view.
The hotel doesn’t have a pool, gym or spa etc but there are arrangements with other properties if you want to make use of these things. The hotel has access to several beach facilities we thought the best of these was down adjacent to the Isola Bella the Mendolla beach club, Yes you have to pay for the sunbeds and take your own towels or haggle with a vendor near the beach to buy some.
Taormina is a beautiful town with a lovely night life where walking up and down the Corso Umberto, people watching appears to be a local tradition.
If you are looking for a sophisticated hotel, with a fabulous location, fantastic food and attentive, unobtrusive, polite and helpful staff. In our opinion you should try the El Jebel We don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
This hotel does what it says in their brochure “It makes you feel calm and relaxed” just what we needed having travelled the length of Italy.
A BIG BIG thank you to Antonio and his staff in making the final destination of our Italian trip so enjoyable, we WILL be back!! :-))
