Judging by some of the other reviews the Bristol Park is a bit of a lottery - when everything is working it's fine, but when it's not you might wish you were staying somewhere else. On the first night of our stay the air conditioning wasn't working - but they promised to have it fixed by the next day and it was. One of the bathrooms had a constant drip from the ceiling and another appeared rather alarmingly in one of the corridors one night. As for some of the electrics - well it might be best not to look too closely. It seems the Bristol Park is rather like a dowager fallen on hard times - trying hard to keep up appearances but sometimes falling short. And yet...
Cleanliness throughout couldn't be faulted. The staff were without exception friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious. And the views of Etna and the bay at Giardini Naxos must be among the best anywhere (see my picture attached). The pool and surrounds are clean and well-appointed. The breakfast room is large and airy with fantastic views - the buffet breakfasts are OK but not spectacular but still you might enjoy cooking your own eggs and sausages on the griddle provided.
Bar and dining facilities are limited but with Taormina only five minutes walk away that's not really an issue. Just don't expect a party at the hotel every night as it's not that kind of place. If you like your hotels in the modern minimalist style then the Bristol Park is definitely not for you - but if you're up for something quirky and possibly even a bit mad then look no further.
