“Truly Amazing in any aspect!!!”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Make El Jebel your first and only hotel pick for your stay in Taormina and you will not regret it! I travelled with my partner for a nice few days vacation trip. We had split our stays between Ville du Ducale and El Jebel. Both stays were amazing however being a young couple El Jebel had the best location and amenities to suit us. We were taken care of very well from the first step into the hotel until check out. Amazing staff, especially the Front office agent Mr. Danilo Lo Conte who really took his time explaining anything we wanted to know and also upgraded us to a corner suite! Thank you El Jebel for making our stay in Taormina an unforgettable amazing life experience! This hotel will definitely be highly recommended to all our friends and family!

I have stayed in lots of hotels all over the world and have never had an experience like we had at el Jebel! Antonio checked us in and made us feel right at home! He and his staff were ready to take care of our every need and answer any questions we might have. The room was perfect! Well appointed and great looking! The dining room was so good looking and the food was delicious. The dinner we had on our last night there was the best meal we had in Sicily and we had some good meals! To walk down the stone steps and onto the streets of Taormina was spectacular! I guess I can pretty much sum this up by saying we could have stayed at el Jebel for a really long time and enjoyed every minute of our stay!
We highly recommend el Jebel.

A great experience in a great town. A first class hotel that has all the assets of the world's finest
places to stay. Exceptional service with Antonio making sure that all your needs and wants are met. Ellene was truly a great help in accomodating all our requests. She truly is a credit to the hotel. The hotel is situated in the center of Taromina and offers a splendid view of the surrounding region. The rooms are very comfortable with large baths and showers. Our breakfast was sumptuous in both quality and quantity of food and service from the staff, especially Ellene. The hotel and staff more than exceeded our expectations. Hotel El Jebel will be in our itinerary on our next trip to Sicily.

One word sums up my experience, "Wow." We had a welcome reception at Hotel el Jebel terrace for 60+ guests who travelled from all over the world to be in Taormina for our wedding. I could not have picked a better venue. The views are spectacular. The quality of the hotel was superb. The service was exceptional. I picked this venue all remotely due to the positive comments on tripadvisor, and I picked the right place indeed. Rita helped me coordinate my event. We even hired a local Sicilian folk band to play live music as part of the ambiance. Rita was flexible on the food and beverages to accommodate my budget. She went over and beyond to help me feel comfortable and ensure the event ran smoothly and that everyone was having fun. In fact, my guests had so much fun, it was hard to get them to leave! I highly recommend Hotel el Jebel!!

When we arrived, we were surprised to get a free upgrade. The suite we got was amazing!
Spacious and beautiful. The bathroom was lovely.
We were on the 3.rd floor and had great view over the sea/city/Etna. The hotel is in the center, and perfect located. You can walk to anything, but still it's quiet when you're in your room.
We had dinner at the roof-top terrace two nights, and the food and service were great.
I need gluten free food, and there was no problems at all during breakfast or dinner (didn't have lunch at the hotel).
The hotel is as perfect as everyone is writing here. We had high expectations, and all of them were forfilled - and more to.
The staff, rooms, restaraurant, roof-top terrace - everything was perfekt!

Room Tip: We had room on the 3.rd floor, and had an amazing view.

My wife and I got married there last summer and loved every minute of our stay. We basically booked out the whole hotel for a week and all the staff, especially Antonio, were unbelievably helpful and accomodating.

The big day itself was magical, helped by the wonderful setting, beautiful hotel and amazing staff who became our friends in the end. Would recommend this hotel 110%.

We all wanted to do different activities and see different sights and the staff were more than happy to help organise any trips for us.

We checked out 6 different hotels before we decided on Hotel El Jebel and cannot recommend this hotel highly enough!

We had a delightful visit to Taormina. The hotel and the staff at the hotel really made our stay special - very welcoming and service oriented. Rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The views are fantastic. Centrally located just off the Corso Umberto for easy access to the sights, dining and shopping. Excellent breakfast. Be sure to have a drink on the roof terrace or stay for a meal, you won't be disappointed! Can't wait to visit again! All the staff were fantastic!
