Family stayPosted Aug 1, 2015
We stayed for five nights with family. Absolutely breathtaking vistas. Staff was outstanding, kind and very attentive to every detail. If there were ever any questions, would be taken care of immediately and with pleasure. Location is superb. Would absolutely recommend to friends and family and would gladly return

Beautiful setting - wonderful staffPosted Jul 24, 2015
Pros: The setting was amazing and it was amusing to see so many of the boat excursions stop in our little cove and point out the hotel!
Cons: Some of the rooms could probably do with an update - they were lovely but probably not worthy of 5 stars.
Location: Apart from the town of Taormina, there are a few lovely restaurants within easy walking distance. We also booked a sunset trip to Etna - a must!
We spent 10 days at this hotel which is built into the cliff side meaning that all rooms have a sea view (and has some very quirky interior design in the hallways!), In the heat of July it was wonderful to have a hotel directly on the water and we swam out to the pontoon in the little cove every day or relaxed in the lovely salt water pool. It is only a 5 minute walk to the cable car which takes you up to the lovely town of Taormina where there are surely 100's of bars and restaurants to explore. We found all the staff throughout the hotel to be extremely pleasant and helpful - and when we had an issue with the air conditioning in our original room, we were upgraded to a suite for no extra cost when it became available a couple of days later. There were 4 weddings while were there. The first was magical with the happy couple arriving by boat, and a fireworks display. After the novelty of the first one, we found it intrusive that some areas were cordoned off and we were unable to sit out by the pool in the evening as all the guests had hogged the sofas!

A classic European luxury hotel.Posted Jun 29, 2015
Cons: The bed wasn't too comfortable
Great service, a lovely room, a fantastic view and an excellent location. Service here is second to none - all the staff went out of their way to ensure a good stay. Breakfast on the restaurant terrace is a delight - there was delicious fish stew on one occasion, and make sure you leave room for the amazing cakes! We didn't realise that Taormina is up a steep hill above the beach, but don't worry… the hotel is 2 walk mins from the cable car that's only €3 each way and runs until 1:30am. A good tip is to call them in advance and get them to send a car to collect you from the airport. Foolishly we jumped in a taxi without thinking - and it was pretty expensive at €140. On the way back the hotel arranged a lovely car and driver for €110. I definitely plan to return!

Old fashionPosted Jun 20, 2015 on Hotels
Taormina is beautiful. Old hotel. But that is the Sicily style.

The hotel is right by the seaPosted Jun 9, 2015
The staff are all very helpful. The hotel is right by the sea and had a large terrace at sea level. Comfortable loungers and a helpful lifeguard. Excellent selection of food at breakfast.
