We recently got married in the lovely town of Taormina. Having booked through a tour operator as a honeymoon package and paying for a sea view we got neither a full sea view (which we were told was not possible when we went back to reception) or any special treatment.
When I asked our tour operator about this I was told that the hotel had promised to do something for us on the day of the wedding and when the operator followed up to ensure that they would they were told the same. Apparently the staff member they spoke with lied as we had nothing. To make it worse for EUR 800 less we could have gone accross the road to the Ariston where some of our guests stayed and got a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival and a triple balcony full sea view (without the honeymoon package).
The only positive element of the hotel was the thorough job done by the cleaning staff however we would not reccommend this hotel to anyone and it very nearly spoiled our time there. We will visit Taormina again as it is a beautiful place but I'll save my money and stay in the Ariston.
