Just spent 11 wonderful days in this hotel. It is not your 5* modern plush but a most wonderful elegant,serene older style hotel.
Sea view room is a must (we were in Room 416) and as this was at end of hotel we had seaview plus side view of Mt. Etna.
The room service was second to none,daily change of bed linen,towels changed twice daily morning and evening,plentiful supply of toiletries,nice spacious room with good wardrobe space and cleaned immacutely.
The view from the balcony is breathtaking morning and evening, and at evening time you can hear the piano playing from the restraunt.
The breakfast is great with plenty of choice and can be enjoyed indoors or outdoors.
And there is nothing more enjoyable after breakfast but to go to library area at recption to have a quick read of daily paper.
I agree the price of eating at evening is very expensive at the restraunt but it is wonderful and 5*
The pool area and staff are again excellent but a little pricey and while it can be full of people it never felt crowded.
The walk to Taorimina is as described and it is a beautiful place to eat,shop and people watch.
Last but not least the reception staff are excellent ,courteous,helpful and totally professional as indeed all staff.
Can not wait to return. I have to say it was one of the most relaxing hotels I have stayed in.
