Everything a couple would want in Sicily. The best. The location allows for a easy walk to all the sights of Taormina. Water front is spectacular. Close to the best restaurants Staff is very professional. Great parking.

First, the pluses:
- great location, right next to the water, opposite the beautiful Isola Bella;
- very good breakfast on a nice terrace with a beautiful view;
- the beach attendant Hamza, who tried very hard to make the beach time pleasurable.

Now the minuses:
- the WiFi is sporadic at best, works mainly in the common areas and even there the signal is very weak. So, if you need to be connected, just forget the place;
- stayed in a "seaside bungalow", nice, but very small. In reality the bed occupies the whole room;
- "Fusion" restaurant, where we went the first night. Overpriced, they try to be a bit of "California Cuisine", but it doesn't work. The quality suffers at the cost of presentation.
Andrea, the maitre was pushy. The wine, which we ordered, they didn't have, so he recommended a similar, or they way he put it, "even better." Of course, it was double the price of what we ordered at first. But you realize it only, when they bring the bill. It is not the right way to treat the guests.
- the sun umbrellas on the beach are very small, so if you prefer to stay in the shade, you will have to move your sunbed every half an hour or so, which is very annoying.

Wonderful, modern and charming place - with everything you need to relax either in your own private area or on the beach together with other guests.
Beautiful location. Stunning view to Isola Bella. Great food. Good service. Good connection to the centre of Taormina - 5 min. by cable car.
I highly recommend and will stay there again on my future visit ti Taormina

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.

We had one of the best bunglows at the hotel room 222 with a price to match but it was something we did not regret. From our large garden area we had a great view of the beach and surrounding areas and very private eventhough wre were next to the area where you dine for breakfast.Overall cannot fault any aspect of this hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms seem similar in size but some with more area outside for lazing around and of course views...

I must admit I was also worried about some of the previous reviews but I found totally the opposite.
We had the hotel pick us up from the airport which was very swift and efficient, we arrived the young baggage boy was miserable didn't smile and a bit off I put it down to hormones but who knows!...this was actually the only negative and La Plage I would seriously consider a different baggage person as first contact on arrival it can give totally the wrong impression.
We were introduced to the a lady who checked us in very very pleasant and welcoming we were given a glass of fizz and sat over looking the beach.
Our bungalow in the grounds had a hot tub I thought the size was perfect who needs a huge room when you have so much to see, very modern fittings the shower pressure a little low but not an issue.
Our bungalow was next to the restaurant and no noise or issues at all.
The restaurant was superb excellent food very friendly staff
The beach lovely yes lots of Asian ladies offering massages and I actually had a 30mins back massage I've had lots of massages all over the world it was excellent very thorough they know what there are doing, now the hotel tries to put you off using them they have notices saying due to hygiene and untrained massages I think the hotel has it's own spa that's why they are not keen and I did need to move off the hotel section of the beach to have to massage but it was great.
The train comes past which was lovely to see while on the beach noise not an issue and didn't hear any trains at night.
The breakfast excellent great location lots of choice could not fault it.
Easy reach to the cable car a 10min walk up some steps very convenient.
I will defiantly be returning we had a lovely break.
