An elegant hotel in a great location. To me the location is better than the Timeo (where you have to beat your way through the throngs of people going to or departing a concert at the Teatro Greco). It is easy to enjoy Taormina from San Domenico Palace. You can access the town out the front gate and retreat from the busy town to the hotel's wonderful gardens and courtyard. The courtyard is a beautiful location for pre-dinner drinks, with an exceptional bartender, service and music. Lunch by the pool is very nice. Our rooms were very comfortable and large. I agree with one reviewer's comment that the WIFI could be improved. The hotel should just take the issue off the table by making good quality WIFI free throughout the hotel, as opposed to charging for use in rooms with free access in the common areas. Charging an additional $9.00 a day to access WIFI in one's room is just an annoyance to guests that does not produce enough revenue to be worth the negative review. Overall, I would give the hotel a 9/10, but note that the hotel will need to start investing a bit more in upkeep.
