Time Travel?

Staying here was like stepping back into the 1970s but in a good way! Helpful staff, old fashioned but spotless furnishings and none of the fake smiles you get in sterile hotel chains. Great!

Wonderful location right on the beach.

Posted Jun 20, 2015
Pros: Everything.
Cons: The shower space in the bathrooms.
Location: Being on the beach and with free parking you can access easily all the great places to go in Taormina.
Great traditionally European hotel on the beach. Great service. Nice staff. Good price considering it includes breakfast and beach service. Overall great experience. Highly recommendable. Will go again!

Next to the Beach- friendly

Posted May 26, 2015
Pros: Showers- but you get what you pay for. good value
Cons: Maybe some music (background ir live) to add ambience in the evening
Location: Enjoyed the opera night in town. Bam bar great for Granita. Loads of good restaurants beautiful mass in the Duomo boat trip around the area
We wanted to be right next to the beach so this suited us perfectly. Staff very friendly warm & helpful Sea view from juliette balcony. Beautiful terrace overlooking the beach for breakfast , then a few steps down to beach with free sun-lounger , towel & sunshade. Lovely clean room- bed a bit hard for me. Didn't have a hot power shower,more of a warm basic shower & curtain- but that was fair enough given the price. Ate at the hotel twice & had great food (went to the highly recommended Duomo & it compared favourably with that. About a 15 minute walk along road with no real pavement to the cable car which transported us up to the heart of the town of Taormina ( you can walk- steep!) Great cafe restaurant beach bar right next door. Some bamboo furniture- depends on your attitude- I found it charmingly authentic/ retro- others might call it old fashioned I think those wanting 5* luxury would need to pay considerably more. Charming & good value for beach lovers (would not recommend to infirm or young adults as it is quite a quiet hotel away from the town) We loved it.

Beautiful location and amazing private beach.

This is a very nice and elegant hotel that I would recommend anyone that is going to spend some holidays in Taormina. The room has got beautiful sea view and are very comfortable. The bathroom is not really modern and the shower could be better (my girlfriend didn't like it) but overall is not a problem at all. Very friendly and elegant staff and service room.

Peccato veniale

Hotel datato. Ottima accoglienza e servizio. Panorama fantastico. Peccato! Un investimento, nemmeno tanto esoso, renderebbe più bello il soggiorno.

In die Jahre gekommenes aber sehr sauberes Hotel

Posted Nov 7, 2014
Pros: Das freundliche und hilfsbereite Personal
Location: Taormina, Castelmola sind wunderschöne Städte die auf jeden Fall einen Besuch wert sind! Eine Tauschschule ist auch in Hotelnähe.
Sehr freundliches hilfsbereites Hotelpersonal. Wir wurden bei allen Tätigkeiten und Ausflügen die wir machen wollten und gemacht haben mit Tipps und Empfehlungen unterstützt und beraten. Das Hotel ist sehr sauber und die Strandterrasse ist echt sehr schön unter Bäumen angelegt. Die Lage hat uns auch sehr gefallen, der Strand ist gepflegt und die Stadt nicht weit - mit Seilbahn oder Bus oder sogar über einen kleinen Schleichweg zu Fuß (20min aber steil bergauf- gutes Schuhwerk empfohlen) erreichbar. Das einzige "negative" ist nur dass das unser Hotelzimmer und dessen Ausstattung schon etwas in die Jahre gekommen war - aber das gab auch einen gewissen Flair :-) Insgesamt waren wir mit dem Hotel sehr zufrieden.

Loved this place, right on the water

Posted Oct 21, 2014 on Hotels
We got two rooms with large balconies over looking the sea. Fabulous staff, private beach access. We booked for two nights and stayed for five. Good home base to see Mt Etna, day trip to Aeolian Islands and more. Free parking for cars. Would definitely go back.
