Stayed for five nights at the end of May. Reception enthusiasticaly efficient on arrival and throughout the holiday - use of the laptop with internet access particularly helpful. Service first rate throughout with the minor caveat that dinners in the Ciampoli Restaurant were leisurely, perhaps in keeping with the generally relaxed pace of life hereabouts. Room first rate other than a slight problem with the bath fixed by the second day. Brilliant views both from our suite and from the rooftop balcony where we dined one evening. No sign of the much mentioned spa reaching completion and no private pool at the beach either until June when the season formally opens.
A very relaxing place indeed to stay; right in the heart of Taormina yet separate from it with a quiet modern elegance all of its own. Every contemorary convenience combined with traditional standards in a spectacular setting. Worth the money. Food at the restaurant offered an authentic take on traditional sicilian cusine as well as more international fare - excellent quality materials and very good standards of preparation for both. Breakfasts were outstanding.
In summary one of the best !
