We were here one week between May-June 2014. We had a standard room in a 3rd floor. The hotel rooms have superb views over Naxos-bay. The AC in the rooms worked well (just remember to keep the balcony door closed).
We arrived at the hotel rather late, @ 930 pm, so we had to scurry for a dinner. We chose the hotel restaurant, and I have to say the dinner was horrid. Luckily, this was the only bad memory about our stay.
The hotel is situated ~300 meters from Taorminas´ main shopping street. One has to walk uphill all the way, but there is lovely restaurants and shops on the way...Breakfast is ok, plenty of fresh fruits, sausages, youghurts etc. and also free (and good) spumante. The personnel was very nice and helpful, daily cleaning in the rooms was ok.
The hotel has lovely garden and a lot of different birds concerting all the time. The pool area is ok, with one pool-restaurant and separate showers for men and women. The hotel would receive 4 stars if it was a bit renovated. Somehow the decoration and rooms seemed to be a bit oldish.
If you value more fantastic views and good service than hotel infra quality, I would recommend this hotel. The daily uphill trip to a shopping street can be annoying for some people.
