Hello dear tourists :)

This year I "got" an opportunity ... some acquaintances have given up their stay in Taormina at the Hotel Antares Olimpo-and left with
meanumber wife

From the first glance I liked the location of hotels, arranged in a side-story mountain. Chamber (number1210) was literally huge, with a secondary camera designed for children and an enormous terrace, but common to the entire floor.

As the hotel was structured, I think all the rooms overlook the sea and the resort of Taormina.

Regarding cleanliness I have nothing to reproach, that the girls who dealt with were very helpful, room is provided in addition to the classic features (fridge, tv, air-cooled type fan heated ceiling) and a kettle and coffee soluble free by the hotel. Pretty should.

The meal was more than the rich, and at least half the menu was different every day and the breakfast what to say ... started with champagne (if wanted) every day. They had a machine that made fresh orange tomatoes (and was visibly so), but it was unfortunately only available in 2-3 days. Otherwise coffee particles and other types (as was Italy), juices and salads, pasta ... a delight.

The evening had a different specific every night (romana evening, evening Sicilian evening ... etc) that not missing pasta, 5-6 in area specific types referenced in the day.

For those who hate to move and will idle all day, this hotel has a drawback: access to the restaurant, the pool, the beach is made using elevators including one that seemed extraordinary to me, looking at the funicular located outside the building and panoramic view. Well, I liked this experience.

Pools have at least three: one in-door and two exterior nice bars, terraces as cover ... rooms with fitness and spa area. I just saw the gym and it was quite equipped.

From the station you can easily reach the town Letojanni in just 1-2 hours in Messina Catania and Siracusa if you want (you have to ask it's complicated transfer required). In Taormina or train arrive in 20-30 minutes or a local race every hour.

For the person who had fun entertainment at the pools and bars, the evening could dance, and the surprise was in Sicilian night when a band of 4-5 people sang and delighted us with their traditional songs and dances.

I recommend this one location, which is very quiet and airy.

pleasant holiday

I stayed at this hotel at the end of a wonderful tour of Sicily. We had stayed at several hotels by the time we arrived at the Hotel Antares/Antares and this was by far the worst. The rooms are ok -nothing special .The shower gel is in small which are difficult to open and there is not enough quantity . The reception area is massive but quite unattractive . It takes some time to work out where you are as the layout of the interrelated hotels is not straightforward.
The service by reception was unhelpful and indifferent. You have to pay for wifi which can only be used in the lobby. You even have to pay for towels to use at the swimming pool.
Given that the swimming pool area is very nice and the service was very good and there are kettles in the rooms!
All in all a big disappointment.

This was the first hotel of three which our group stayed in for a twelve day bus tour of Sicily. It is built into the hillside so great views. There's a funicular to get to the upper hotel but as season had just started the upper hotel and pool were not busy.
One of our party was annoyed by the road noise and their room was changed when they asked. The food was a buffet for dinner and breakfast and we loved the ice cream which was available every evening.
A walk to Letojanni in the evening was enjoyable. Try a cocktail in the Blue Sky bar in the square outside the church

Room Tip: Don't leave room door opened.... lots of cats

It is a very big hotel (quite an industry...), having a great position on the hill and good facilities.
The up-side pool is very nice adn the view great.
Piano bar give the possibility to enjoy late music.
I recomand it

Room Tip: Take care to elevator - it is very nice, but noisy during the night

Also found the room hot and noise from road and rail when doors left open. Also, water pipes from other rooms were quite distracting.
Comfortable though and food good. It was hard to find a clean, cleared breakfast table after 08:30am, waiting staff not very conspicuous. The Olimpic Hotel connected by funicular was better with great aspects from roof terraces.
