This hotel was recommended to us very highly, and we now understand why. It is beautifully sited on the hills above Taormina. The rooms, both private and public, are beautifully appointed. The staff were ALL so friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. They seemed to be there just to make sure that our every wish was met.
The breakfasts were simply astounding, from the range of food available to the taste of the food and the service - all with one of the most breathtaking views in the world, including watching the steam and smoke coming from Mt Etna.
There was complimentary morning and afternoon tea available as well as savoury accompaniments to pre-dinner drinks.
Dinner, too, was delicious and enjoyed on the balcony with the beautiful night view across water.
The walk to Taormina was too steep for us, but the hotel offered a shuttle service and on one occasion we took a taxi back up the hill at very reasonable cost.
We cannot recommend this hotel more highly.
