We stayed at the Ashbee just one week ago and what a wonderful place. Taormina is very busy in July and what a great place to retreat to after a busy day on the streets of Taormina. We stayed in a Junior suite #26 and it was beautiful. The grounds are wonderful. You feel like you are staying at a private estate. Poor was refreshing after a day of sightseeing. Breakfasts were unbelievable. Everything you could imagine and then some. The WHOLE staff was eager to please and very attentive. They knew your name after one day. I visited the other 5 star properties in Taormina and they were beautiful but if you want to feel special tucked away in privacy this is the place. There wasn't anything they didn't do for us. We rented a Hertz car and it was delivered to the hotel . Very convenient. Parking is at a premium in town so allow the hotel to park your car. Very convenient even at $25 Euro/day. Despite small issue with bathroom drain and an air conditioning intermittent noise, we would most definitely come back. Wish more hotels took a lesson in service from the Ashbee.
