Perfect location in wonderful town of Taormina, yet in an oasis of calm: it offers the best of both worlds with the hustle and bustle of the town contrasted with its own monastic serenity. How amazing to be able to stay in a former Monastery ( a beautiful building), steeped in history and delightful artefacts throughout the hotel. It has managed to retain the original monastic features without acceding to too many modern-day facilities. We would recommend a Junior suite which are larger rooms with a terrace stunning views of the sea and towns below. The former Cloisters houses a wonderful garden bar (though the drinks are expensive as in the rest of the hotel). The pool is on the small side and not ideal for younger children and there are beautifully manicured gardens. The food is fabulous with great choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The staff throughout the hotel are extremely pleasant and helpful, particularly the reception and dining room teams. We thoroughly enjoyed our week of historic bliss and indulgence!!
