We visited La Plage with another couple, we arrived late (thank you French ATC), but were made extremely welcome on arrival. We were given a glass of fizz, while reception did the necessary paperwork (in Italy for example passports have to be copied), and by the time this was completed our bags had already been delivered to our rooms. We were both booked into rooms that did not have sea views, and personally I think this was the correct option. We were on the beach most of the day, so a view first thing in the morning and last thing at night may not be the best option. Both "rooms" being circular bungalows were big enough (21 sq metres) - not if you were staying there on business but certainly for a holiday resort. There is a very large comfortable bed, and a good sized bathroom (only shower). The rooms are clean, air conditioned and the towels are changed morning and evening (which is really good for a beach hotel). There is free WiFi throughout the hotel (something others might learn from) - having said that sometime we could connect to the WiFi but there did not seem to be a broadband connection! Nevertheless the WiFi and broadband worked well in reception if you were in the hurry.
The restaurant services good quality food and about the same price as other restaurants in Taormina. The bar on the beach sells excellent cocktails (at a price) and in the evening good "little eats" with the drinks.
Breakfast was outside in a dedicated area, and there was an excellent choice with eggs cooked to order, lots of fresh fruit, breads etc. This set us up for the remainder of the day.
The beach does not have sand, so beach shoes are essential. Sunbeds are plentiful and towels provided by Hamza (as previously noted nothing seem too much trouble for him).
Now onto the issue of the railway line. Yes there is a railway line that backs directly onto the hotel site - there is no denying it, so if you want a holiday without any noise, then this is not a hotel for you, but I consider myself a light sleeper and our room was close to the line and I can honestly say I was not woken by it, so I do not consider an issue and a small price to pay for an excellent hotel, in a great location, with direct beach access, and great staff.
Would recommend this hotel.
