We stayed at the Monte Tauro for our 10 day honeymoon, and had a wonderful time. The hotel is very conveniently located - literally a 2 minute walk to the nearest bar/restaurant and around a 10 minute walk to the cable car/Greek Theatre.
You are also near some other interesting sites, such as where part of the Godfather was fillmed (Savocca). Well worth hiring a car, although some of the hair pin bends are a bit...hairy!
I have no idea why everybody comments on the steep walk out of the hotel - because of previous reviews, I was dreading getting out of the hotel, but it really isn't a big deal!
We hired a car for the 10 days and the only thing I would say, is that's it's not overly easy to manouvre in and out of the hotel; however, staff park the car for you, so you just need to be a bit careful when coming in to the hotel's entrance.
The room we had was large, airy and spacious with a fantastic balcony - the views were awesome. All the staff were friendly, happy to help and eager to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Our room was cleaned every day - fresh towels, linen etc - and it just made everything so much more luxurious.
Breakfast was amazing - as much as you can eat, and they certainly had everything you could have imagined - including champers.
Finally a special mention to the pool attendant, who is absolutely fantastic. I have never met a member of staff so attentive and helpful - he's an absolute star.
The Monte Tauro really made our honeymoon extra special. It's well worth a visit!
