I took my mum for a weekend break to Taormina and we were very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The location is excellent (close to Excelsior Palace and San Domenico hotels), the view from the terraces magical and the swimming pool feels set in the clouds. Decor is moorish/baroque villa style and the gardens seem to hang down towards the sea.
The staff (cleaning/pool/b'fast) were all very approachable and I have to thank Sonia at reception for her kind advice and availability, especially since it was the busy weekend of the Taormina FilmFest.
The property keeps its antique charm in aspects, so do take or ask for multiple plugs to attach appliances in the room. A room on the terraces is wonderful but being in the midst of greenery, do make use of the airconditioning at night and/or mosquito repellent.
Truly a good way to start your stay in Taormina!
