It is a little hike up the hill from the main areas of Taormina, but it is worth it - alone for the experience of swimming in the rooftop pool with views of Mt. Etna.
Later we spent half of the night on our private balcony to enjoy the view on the red-glowing lava erupting from the volcano against the dark sky. Add a bottle of good red wine and you have an unforgettable romantic experience!
The staff was very friendly and helpful and even prepared a super-early breakfast for us, when we had to leave early morning to get to the airport in Catania.
The hotel is connected with the excellent restaurant "La Botte" in the center of Taormina, where you get a little discount, if you stay at the hotel.
If you bring your own car, they offer safe private parking on the other side of the street.
