Prices in the restaurant and all bars are very much like 5*, but atmosphere is very good and live entertainment was fantastic !!! Russian girl Elena at reception was exceptional ! Helped us with tours and dining recommendations. Highly recommend this hotel!

Breathtaking views, great service and perfect location. In this hotel you you can enjoy the day with an espetacular location on the sea. Also a small beach is available to few steps from the elevator. Food is very good, particularly sea food, a bit overpriced but ok. Front desk people were very kind, particularly Mr Santino who did everything to offer a very pleasant stay, including offering a decent place for a late shower before we took a long haul flight.
Bus service to the city center is also a good advantage. Heavily recommend this hotel in Taormina.

Room Tip: Ocean view is worth. Combine sea, Etna vulcano and the city.

This hotel is old. Architectural wise it's horrible and the interior design is tacky. But it's very well located. I would say it's one of the best located in the bay of Taormina. It has a private beach but by 2pm there is no more sun on the beach so you have to walk to the other side where there is a pool and an entrance to the sea. If you are staying in Taormina for very few days i don't recommend this hotel.

we choose this hotel only because of the beach. The beach is interesting with unusual exit from the cave, but the beach is open after 8 AM and there is no sun after 2 PM and it could be cold in spite of high ambient temperature. Beach stuff is very unpleasant, if it s usually windy it s forbidden to open umbrellas and also forbidden to move sun beds!!! It is a very expensive hotel not a summer camp for children! At last the hotel is old, needs to be renovated; NOT VALUE FOR A MONEY

I stayed here for a week in June 2014. My room was upgraded so I got to enjoy a gorgeous sea view from my balcony. The room was a good size and had a separate dressing room with loads of space to hang clothes.
Dinner in the restaurant was excellent and the staff were very friendly. I'd really recommend making a booking at the restaurant close to the pool area too as it's beautiful and extra romantic.
The pool area is lovely with lots of sun beds and a bar. The beach area is also stunning and gets the sun in the morning. Best to get there early as there aren't as many sunbeds.
It's best to get to breakfast quite early too as it gets busy. The breakfast staff weren't as efficient as the other staff and they got quite confused with people's coffee orders etc. but I think that was down to how busy it was rather than a lack of competence.
The reception staff were great. Very friendly and happy to advise on transport, excursions, directions etc. The free shuttle bus service into Taormina is very useful.
As mentioned in other reviews, the hotel décor is a bit dated. It's nice though and I can honestly say that the wallpaper didn't take away any enjoyment of the visit.
I can't advise on parking or ease of travel from the airport as I had a transfer and didn't use a car.

I spent 4 nights at this hotel with my sisters in July 2014 and overall we were very pleased with the hotel. The pool area is lovely and has many areas in which you can find a sun bed, each one with a different view to look at so never a boring place. The beach area was also nice even though it was pebbly and hard to get into the water without special water shoes or flip flops.
The rooms are spacious and we had a nice garden balcony area.
The breakfast was copious and lacking in nothing and had a wonderful view of Mount Etna and the sea.
There were a few things that were not up to a standard and which the hotel should take into account. The snack food by the bar was very basic and not very good at all. On top of it there was really not that much choice. Your other choice was to have a sit down meal for the value of 35 euros plus. If you don't fancy spending that much at lunch, then you are kind of stuck for choice which is a great shame.
The other criticism I have of this hotel is the times of the free shuttle buses that take you to the centre of Taormina. The 6.45 is always fully booked and the next one after that is at 20.30.Most people like to go into town around 6.30-7.30 so they can browse around the town before eating dinner, so it is no surprise that the 6.45 is always booked by mid day. If it is, you have no other option but to eat very late or take a taxi to the town. For a hotel with so many guests they should put on more buses at peak times!!!
Lastly, we were shocked to find that the wifi is not free. Everywhere you go in Taormina it is free, so a hotel of this standing should offer free wifi to it's guests. When you did pay, it i was a rather rubbish service to boot!
Despite these criticisms, I have to say most of the staff were very nice, especially Santorini at reception. Always gave a smile with the service and very very helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a garden balcony.

No question this hotel is in a great spot with a lovely view of Mount Etna. Beyond that it is not worth the money to stay here. The hotel is very large and in great need of a near complete overhaul and updating. It simply has a tired and worn look about it. Hotel parking is extremely limited. If you aren't fortunate enough to get a spot, you can use the garage under the hotel for an additional 10 euro per night! Really? For the rates this hotel charges one would expect the payment of the parking fee would be covered! Front desk not really all that helpful. We asked one night for a recommended restaurant away from the crowds and reasonably priced. Turned out to be a very busy spot. And while we enjoyed it, the man at the desk failed to consider and tell us the cab ride was an additional 40 euros for the round trip!
I would not stay here again nor can I recommend it.
