We stayed in the Monte Tauro for a week. All of the staff we dealt with were extremely pleasant and very helpful.
This was on the fifth floor and had a very good view. The balcony was large which meant one could choose sun or shade. The bed was comfortable and pillows also comfortable. The bathroom had an overbath shower which had good waterpressure. The decor was a bit dated and some updating would help. The air conditioning was very quiet and very effective.
Restaurant was on 7th floor. There was a reasonable selection at breakfast though there was no granita which is such a sicilian breakfast staple. It took us a day or two to realise that staff would fry eggs and bacon if we wished. It would have been nice to see some bananas and peaches on offer. it was nice to have the option to squeeze your own fresh juice as you wanted. Boiling water for tea loving irish was only available early. after that it was pretty lukewarm.
As we had stayed in the ATACAPOHotel last year we opted to stay up in the town this year. The benefit of this was that it was very handy for restaurants and wine bars in the evening. However there are 37 steps up from the doorway of the hotel to streetlevel. Not for the unfit or the fainthearted.
