We went to the Hotel Sirius on the 15th July-26th July 2012. Wow what an amazing experience. The Hotel in itself was off the charts and we were lucky enough to have the most wonderful views over Taormina bay. The staff which I would prefer to call friends that were at the Hotel could not do enough for us, from the poolside bar to the Breakfast Restaurant so polite and if you needed anything you only had to ask. The room was extremely clean and very Italian, food at the hotel was so fresh every morning with a lot to choose from. No failures in any way for myself and my friend, just a small caution to take into consideration for people that are a little infirm or have health problems, the walk out of the hotel was steep but the hotel were more than happy to provide assistance to any needs if the case may have arisen. Taormina itself offered many things to see including Mount Etna full day cruise round the Volcanic Islands from Panarea-Stromboli (From 10am in the morning until 1am the next day). The Sea side was not a place to relax due to the fact that every five minutes you were disturbed with many people offering massage or touristic gifts and it had many large stones to lay on if you did not have a private hotel placement, but it was worth the experience but the poolside at the hotel Sirius was the best in any case. All in all Amazing. If you want a great Restaurant in Taormina please go to Romeo and Juliet they offer amazing traditional Italian food and live music every night very friendly people and great Guitarist. Loved the Hotel and People we met and Taromina.
