Step back in time

While the hotel is getting a bit dated nearly 50 years old and needs some attention to the guests sitting areas and bar on the lower terrace level with an update the hotel definitely had old world charm. We particularly enjoyed the restaurant with classic silver service at your table by an immaculate maitre de and his staff in traditional formal service suits - how fantastic to see this style of service still in practice for the evening meal. The buffet breakfast within the same restaurant and adjoining terrace overlooking the ocean was fantastic with great variety hot and cold plus some beautiful pastries and tarts. There was free parking plus free service on the beach with deck chairs, umbrellas towels etc plus a lifeguard on duty.

Oubollige inrichting, weinig smaakvol.

Posted Oct 9, 2014
Pros: Schitterende ligging direct aan het strand
Cons: De " vergane glorie" uitstraling kan verbeterd worden door zorgvuldig onderhoud en smaakvollere inrichting.
Location: Veel te zien. Taormina is een aardig stadje. En een echte aanrader is de Romeinse villa in de buurt van Enna met prachtige mozaiekvloeren.
Matige badkamer, piepkleine douche met zwak straaltje en lekkende kraan. Daar staat de sublieme ligging van dit hotel tegenover. Direct aan het strand gelegen. Erg vriendelijk en behulpzaam personeel. Het ontbijt was matig. Vruchten uit blik is toch vreemd in een zonovergoten land waar vruchten op iedere hoek vd straat te koop zijn.

Very Enjoyable

Posted Oct 2, 2014
Pros: Comfort; convenience; accessibility to area attractions; and the friendly, helpful staff.
Cons: It was impossible to shower without getting the bathroom floor wet. Only one English-speaking TV station ... BBC World News gets old quickly.
Location: Taormina is a fun town with shopping and great restaurants. Mt. Etna and Greek ruins at Siracusa are each about an hour drive.
The facilities are a bit dated, but the pleasant, knowledgeable, helpful staff more than made up for it. The direct views of the clear, blue Mediterranean were spectacular. Access to the beach was super convenient. It is also an easy drive to local attractions: Siracusa, Mount Etna. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to our friends.

il tempo si è fermato

Posted Sep 29, 2014
Pros: la posizione direttamente sulla spiaggia
Cons: tutto è vecchio( non antico) vecchio
Location: posizione eccellente direttamente sulla spiaggia vicino a Taormina alta e all'autostrada
la posizione direttamente sul mare fa' in parte dimenticare una struttura rimasta agli anni 60 , 4 stelle sono tante per una camera con arredi vecchi televisione con tubo catodico che si vede male , doccia con tenda in plastica e interruttori della luce non a norma.

Great Oceanfront hotel

Posted Sep 26, 2014 on Hotels
If you like to hear the waves on the shore as you go to sleep, this is the place for you. The rooms are right over the beach with fantastic views of the coast. It's not fancy but very comfortable. The Quad room is spacious and comfortable for a multi stay visit. The only drawback is that it is a bit of a walk to the funivia to get into town. When the temperatures are in the 80's and 90s, this is the place to be.

Stor besvikelse, det var ett gammalt "sunkigt" hotell i rysk stil

Vacanza a Taormina

Posted Sep 25, 2014
Pros: Tutto. In particolare il Maitre, maestro di mandolino, colto amante delle bellezze locali e prodigo di preziosi consigli
Cons: Nessuno
Location: L'Hotel è al centro della baia di Taormina. Un grande terrazzo ombreggiato da alberi di bengiamino offre un paesaggio marino meraviglioso
Il periodo di vacanza (11 settembbre - 19 settembre) con amici è stato caratterizzato da un clima soleggiato caldo secco, che ha propiziato il relax con frequenti bagni di mare in acqua limpida e pulita ed escursioni interessanti in alcuni paesi dei Monti Peloritani e alle Gole di Alcantara, nonchè alle meravigliose città barocche di Scicli e di Noto.

Dejligt hotel

Posted Sep 21, 2014 on Hotels
Dejligt hotel beliggende ved privat strand. Skøn terrasse med fantastisk udsigt. Værelset en smule slidt, men beliggenheden opvejer helt sikkert dette.
