What a magnificent grand hotel in a truly spectacular location. We visited Taormina with my Husband's Father and his Wife who are in their eighties and are very sprightly and fun loving. We were allocated two sea view rooms with magnificent views of Mt. Etna and the Ionian Sea. The balconies are spacious and they have a table and padded chairs with potted plants to complete the vista. The weather was amazing, we visited from 24/8 for 7 days. All the staff are very pleasant, polite and helpful, a special mention to the Pool Attendant who ensured we were always accommodated with beds and towels complete with a friendly smile. Also, the talented piano player who practised a special song for my Father-in-law to which they danced to on the Terrace.
If I have a complaint, and I don't even want to mention it but the quality of the food at dinner was inconsistent and often lukewarm. We were also told that dessert wasn't included on the Half Board option and that we would have to pay (we later found out, after 4 days that it was included), good for the diet but we missed 4 days of a wonderful chocolate mousse! We didn't complain as didn't want to spoil the holiday. Taormina is a picturesque hillside Town steeped in history, with quaint winding streets and lots of shops, cafés and restaurants, we absolutely loved Taormina . A visit up to the Greek Amphitheatre is well worth a visit. All of this is walkable from the Hotel. We enjoyed two lunches out and the food and service was very good.We didn't make Etna but we have been to Vesuvius, and the weather was so good we spent quality time by the pool. The maid service was excellent and the rooms always cleaned to a high standard. Don't take any notice of the negative reviews, enjoy the stunning views and the ambience of a beautiful location in Sicily.
