“Absolutelly great!”
Reviewed 18 July 2012

We’ve just come back from a great holiday spent in H.Ariston, Taormina.
This elegant and refined hotel has a wonderful location on the top of a hill, at the bottom of the Greek Theater, overlooking the Ionic sea. The landscape is so nice…
Our reservation was for a twin beds room with balcony and sea view, HB.
Even though we arrived earlier, Mauricio helped us with an immediate check in so the room was ready for us with compliments from de hotel (a bottle of champagne, sparkling and natural water and a basket of different fruits).
We received a blue card which is required when using the hotel’s facilities (working as a credit card).The bill is paid at the moment of check-out.
The room has been recently redecorated, is big in size, with white and modern furniture, comfortable beds and two armchairs (one being chair bed).
A safe deposit box, TV sat with many national programmes and few in English, a minimart (good prices) are available into the room.
The bathroom is good in size,toiletteries available.
The breakfast is so rich! Many kind of dishes, cold and hot, sweets, fruits, champagne, fresh orange juice, two type of granita. What can you wish more?
As for the dinner…so great and delicious! There is a possibility to choose from a la carte or the daily menu proposed by the Chef. This menu consists of: starters, first plate (pasta or rice), second plate (fish /chicken/beef) and desserts (cakes/ice cream).
Twice a week there is a Sicilian dinner (on Monday) with live folk music and a Marinara dinner (Friday).If you are not on a HB ,this special dinners cost 22 EUR.It deserved it!
Special arrangements, candle lights, a romantic atmosphere added to a wonderful sun set from the terrace. As for the food I am speechless…
The personal from the reception and restaurant is very hospitable, nice, polite, helpful.
These being said our special thanks go to entire team of Ariston with great regard to the Chef!
Ariston has a private beach – Tropicana, in Letoianni.There is a shuttle bus three times a day, at the beach for 8 Euro you receive a sun bed and an umbrella.
If you prefer the Mazzaro beach, there is a cable way (funivia) closed to the hotel. There is only one ticket available, 3 EUR/person/way. For a sun bed and an umbrella the price is 10 EURO.
A notice for luggage's assistance : as the access to the hotel is a little bit difficult (a short but unfriendly sloping way and few more steps ) at the parking area there is a ring bell.Call and get assistance!

Room Tip: a room with balcony and sea view is a must

Just returned from 3 nights at the Ariston. The staff in the restaurant especially Monica are so professional they are an asset to this place, the food was delicious as well. The pool area is lovely very clean, quiet and peaceful, it was still quiet even when full of people which we found amazing!
Our room although very clean and spacious felt like it needs a bit of a re-vamp, we were not in the actual ariston but in a secluded area where room numbers start with a 7. Our sofa looked liked it had been brought in from some random place and was torn at the edges. However it was super clean and all staff were very very polite and helpful!

Room Tip: If you need privacy the secluded rooms are better then the actual rooms in the ariston

First time in Sicily and Taormina and Hotel Ariston in the end of June. We stayed in the annex of Santa Catarina and had only a partial seaview through the trees in front of the house. Nice view to garden and some sea, though, plus a large balcony and a big room. No noise from the neighbourhood in the nights.

When we came to the hotel, there was a bottle of spumante and a bowl of fruit waiting for us in the room. We felt this was a lovely start for the holiday. We enjoyed from our hearts the beautiful hotel grounds and views to the sea, the nice pool area, the friendly and accomodating staff and the excellent food. Breakfast, lunch, evening buffet, always good! We stayed on bb but ate quiten often at the hotel since the prices were good. The large and deep pool (depth 2,5 m and more) was a positive surprise, you could really swim there which is not possible in most hotel pools. However, maybe not so convenient for families with small children. There is also a separate jacuzzi.

Grazie! We had a wonderful holiday at Ariston and hope to return soon!

Have to say one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in in my worldly travels. Staff food rooms and location are superb. Most relaxing of surroundings and peace and tranquility. The staff could not do enough for you. Great value for money and would go back tomorrow knowing that I would be treated like a V.I.P

I have just spent a great weekend at the Ariston with my whole family - wife, children and grandchildren and I can only say that the Hotel was fantastic, my Room 246 was clean and complete and with an excellent sea view and the staff was extremely courteous and helpful. We had very good food - especially the Friday seafood buffet. I can recommend the Hotel to anyone spending time in Taormina - singles, couples, and families. You will surely not regret it - but always ask for a seaview room.

Room Tip: Always ask for a seaview room with a balcony. It will be worth the extra payment. Try to avoid room...
