“Absolutely Fabulous!!”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

5+++stars! An absolutely fabulous resort! I'd stay here again and again. The staff was friendly, polite and always helpful. Great location, quick walk (up a small hill of course) to the cable car.

Our room was awesome. It was cleaned and then cleaned again with turn down service. Always fresh towels and crisp clean sheets. We had a great little sea/garden view villa. Perfect little outside area to unwind and pretty private.

The restaurant was excellent as well for both lunch and dinner. Great selection and even a kids menu.

The beach, although a bit rocky and crowded, was still beautiful and relaxing.

Also, I read other reviews that the train that runs behind the hotel was bothersome. It wasn't at all, actually the quietest train I've ever heard and the sound of it passing lasted 6 seconds.

Definitely a must stay in Taormina!

We were looking for a Beachside location to have the quintessential mediterranean holiday.
La Plage certainly fulfilled our expectations for location and amenities. The hotel is right on the best beach in Taormina. The beach is privately controlled , however day visitors can rent an umbrella and chair for about 25Euro. ...free for Hotel guests.You still have many hawkers and woman offering foot massage , but these aren't that bothersome. Don't forget your reef shoes as the beach is pebbles, but the water was clean and refreshing. Hotel staff were great and spoke English. The breakfast ( included in the rate)was on the terrace and was ok but the offering of cereals were poor with no muesli and if you are a Green Tea drinker the only option was Green Tea with mint. Fruit also was limited to basic varieties which for the price should have been better. We received an upgrade to a Superior room which gave us a bath and a little more room. Our first night was spent in a Bungalow which was cute but small . The shower needed a good clean to get the mould off the bottom of the walls but otherwise the room was clean and the bed and linen good quality. My wife had a facial at the spa and this was excellent ...but expensive of course .The train line passes right next to the resort , but this does not bother you after the first one , unfortunately the train line is built right along the beach so any beach side location has to contend with this .Overall we had a great experience but it really is a 4 star resort charging 6 star prices due to the location.

Room Tip: You get what you pay for ...your choice of Garden or Beachside Bungalow ..Beach side is best but eve...

Good hotel with something of the feel of the better places we have stayed in the Thailand/ Malayasia

The beach is pebbly but that actually adds to the charm of it once you have bought the shoes !

Excellent breakfast by Italian or any standards, stunning views of isola bella. Good Beds, Pillows and Air Con. No issues with mozzies or jellyfish during our stay.

Convenient for cable car into town.

Small but functional gym with great view.

The staff was excellent, they tried to always assist patrons with what they needed. The housekeeping staff must work all day because no matter when we left the room they were available to refresh the room. The beach and location is perfection! It's very difficult to find modern style amenities and comfort in Sicily, but La Plage offers it. Overall stay for the price and the amenities was excellently relaxing!!

Really enjoyed our stay. We have stayed in many 5* places but the service and rooms were excellent at la plage. We had a lovely quirky rooms in individual hut , some with own gardens and hot tubs and ours had a beautiful sea view. Very well sound proofed and we had a very restful stay. Yes, some of the food and drink was UK prices but quailty was worth it and some of the gardens may have needed a bit more manicuring but that did not interfer at all in us have a really enjoyable trip. It is nicely out of town on the beach so away from noise ( the town is up on the hill ) but a quick cable car journey to the town means you can have a meal and wine and walk home in 10mins.

Room Tip: definitely go for a sea side room and the hot tubs are fantastic

The hotel was great!!! It overlooked the breathless view of Isola Bella and all services were meticulously provided to make us feeling confortable and at ease. The staff so helpful and friendly gave us all information and assistance we needed. The room, in a modern style and cosy , was for all our stay cleaned and outfitted so that we almost felt like at home.
The location was so close to the major points of interest and it took very little time to reach the beach (towels and sea stuff were kindly provided by the hotel). During our stay we enjoyed the typical sicilian cooking too! From the breakfast to dinner the food was gorgeous …I suggest you pasta alla Norma and arancino :))

Where to start, this hotel is absolutely stunning, the staff are amazing and food is fantastic. We liked it so much we decided to have our wedding with them. We were given one of the Bungalow rooms for our wedding night, it had a private Jacuzzi with panoramic view of Isola Bella. But it was all the smal touches that made our wedding & stay even more memorable. If you are planning a Sicilian Wedding La Plage is a Beautiful venue. If you are just planning a trip to Sicily this is a perfect place to stay, its very close to the cable car house which takes you upto Taormina.
