Having just returned from Hotel Caparena I would like to advise other travellers of our stay! When we arrived at the hotel we were slightly disppointed with the location of the hotel. it was positioned on the beach (lovely) but was a taxi ride from Taormina, we were lucky as we had a car. We were advised that there was a shuttle bus running frequently to Taormina but you had to book the day before! The gardens of the hotel were beautiful but such a shame that you were unable to eat outside overlooking the bay as for many nights of our stay there was a private function. There was a beach restaurant but with a very limited menu, if you want a snack there really isn't anything on the menu, you could have a buffet salad though for 20 EURO - a little expensive don't you think! Our room was supposed to be superior with a sea view, we just about had seaview but I wouldn't say the room was superior! Also there was a train running between the hotel and the beach (no mention of this in the Citalia brochure), I am a deep sleeper so wasn't affected by this!
On the positive side the staff were polite, the rooms were clean, breakfast and evening meal were good and the pool was nice and clean with free towels.
I think as long as you go aware of the above a stay at the Caprena is very pleasant. Surely a proper beach bar where snacks are served would be a great investment and eating on the terrace in the summer with the fantastic views another must!
