We've just returned from a two week stay in the Ariston and would highly recommend it. We had a room on the first floor with a terrace rather than a balcony with plenty of room, the only down side was it was shared with four other rooms so not much privacy but we seemed to be only ones who sat out on it. We ate in the hotel on two nights and the food was very good and it is very relaxing after coming back from a coach trip not to have to walk into town with is about a 10/15 min walk. We took the Funiva to Mazarro for the beach one day, but found it expensive (30 euro for two beds and umbrella) we then discovered that the hotel have an arrangement with Lido Tropicana in Letojanni so we used that ,it was 16 euro for two beds and umbrella and you met the bus down in the bus station just beside the hotel and you were dropped back there as well, it was really convenient. Tropicana was lovely the water was really enjoyable and we ate there for lunch and the food was really good. The hotel is very convenient for Taormina the nicest way into town is to turn right when you come out of the hotel follow the road down the hill and keep walking straight (slightly to the right) and on the left hand side about 100 yards up is the entrance to the municipal park with great views over Giardini Naxos and Enta and it brings you out in the centre of Taormina where there are loads of restaurants. If you stay in this hotel, you will enjoy your holiday.

Great breakfasts. Good location though would need to be reasonably fit for all the steps up to the hotel. Maurizio at reception was extremely helpful. Pool area nice and relaxing with very few children which was perfect for us - a couple in our 30's looking for a relaxing break away. Definitely recommend it. Very clean.

We spent a glorious week in Hotel Ariston. All of the staff were friendly and helpful and spoke very good English.
Our room was on the 3rd floor overlooking the sea with a fantastic view up and down the coastline and over to the mainland when the haziness cleared. Our balcony was smallish but sufficient room for a table and 2 chairs. We noted that the balconies on the 4th floor were much narrower and therefore it would have been difficult to sit out.
The room and bathroom were clean - not huge but sufficient for our purposes. The air conditioning worked well and is essential in August.
Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice and was served from 7a.m. to 11a.m which gave us the opportunity to have a lie in after a late night at the opera on the Greek Theatre which was a 10 minute walk away.
The town centre with its many restaurants and cafes and quite expensive shops was also very convenient. The bus station and funicular railway down to the beaches at Massara were also within a stone's throw.
We dined in the hotel on 2 evenings - food was excellent at a reaosonable price for the 3 course set menu (€20pp) + reasonably priced wine.
The pool was excellent with plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas surrounding it. There are also good well kept gardens with trees offering shade from the ever present sun.
There was musical entertainment every evening which provided easy listening.
We cannot really find fault with anything so would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing chilled out holiday.

We stayed in this hotel for 7 days in June 2011. Breakfast buffet was really excellent. Especially fresh orange juice. Room was small but functional. Pool was nicely deep. No small children so it was nice place for two adults.

Loved our stay at Hotel Ariston. Large spacious rooms, well equipped. Air conditioning very good in one room but only fair in the other. We had rooms that did not have a sea view but were cooler because they were in the shade of a huge rock and significantly cheaper. Would be very happy to book similar rooms again!
Staff extremely helpful - especially Maurizio at reception!!! Rooms serviced well - a bottle of bubbly and a bowl of fruit was a nice first day touch!!
Pool very deep- pool area well looked after.
A fantastic breakfast. Will have no hesitation recommending this hotel to friends!!!
