I'm currently staying with my wife in the Monte Tauro hotel, coming to the end of a weeks holiday here.
The views from our room, the dining room over breakfast and from the pool are spectacular. Elevated view of the Med and coastline - stunning. The rooms are fine, average size and of obvious 70s style but by no means tired. Large balcony and very nice wooden table and chairs for evening lounging before going out.
Good pool which is quiet, only half the loungers ever seem to be taken and only 2-3 people in the pool if any. And surely the best pool guy in the world...you just call down before breakfast ask him for loungers and he puts the towels out and positions the beds. Have to be back within an hour. Then when u go to lunch he moves them for you to follow the sun without even being asked. Made me feel pretty lazy!
Only minor beef is that the a/c isn't on in the rooms yet...only the lobby. I'm guessing it must come on for July or August and that's standard for hotels around here. Just not experienced that in a 4* before.
Breakfast is excellent all the usual fayre, and very polite and efficient staff. As other reviews have mentioned there is a very steep uphill 25 yard walk immediately out of the hotel to get up in to Taormina. No big deal and been good for our legs this week...but not really suitable for elderly or immobile I guess.
So a top hotel and glad we chose it. No hesitation in highly recommending it.
