We stayed for two nights in this absolutely lovely old Italian villa that has been transformed into a luxury hotel. Amazing views over the coast and Etna from the terrace where a fabulous breakfast is served each morning. We also had dinner here on the first night looking out onto the lava oozing down Etna under a full moon. The dinner was great with lots of local specialities and good wine selection. We had the smallest room there as all the others were booked out which although didn't have views was immaculately clean, well furnished and very comfortable with an excellent bathroom
And shower. All staff were an absolute delight: friendly and helpful, always cheerful and happy to assist with information and tips. We were welcomed with bright smiles and complimentary wine on the terrace to take in the views. There is no pool but guests have access to a pool in their sister hotel (although we didn't try this) they also provide free shuttles to central Taormina and can recommend beaches with paid return shuttles/umbrellas etc. We would not hesitate to recommend this delightful hotel to anyone wanting to splurge on a stay in beautiful Taormina!
