last weekend of summer

Posted Sep 7, 2011 on Hotels
The hotel was quite a bit overpriced. However the staff was very friendly! The room itself was much smaller than the pictures showed them as. The pool was pretty nice, and they had a lot of area on the roof to just relax or layout. Within a small walk you could get to the beach, and about 400 meters down the road you could catch the gondola up to the main area of Taormina. It seemed to be a hotel with an older crowd as it's clientele, just something to consider. The breakfast buffet in the morning is much better in comparison to many of the other B&Bs I have been to around Sicily. Overall: convenience wise this place was great, for the price i felt it was a bit steep.

Noisy hotel aimed at package tourists

Posted Oct 2, 2009
Very good reception staff, waiting staff play to the package tour idea of Italian waiters! Cramped, poorly laid-out, poorly insulated room. Aircon centrally controlled was always too cold, but turned off made the room too stuffy. Simple stuff like making sure there was a spare toilet roll was not properly attended to. Restaurant meal just average, too much volume and insufficient quality. However Sicilian night buffet was really very good. Good location close to funicular to upper town. Beach is a bus ride away and costs 6.00 Euros for guests. If you stay here don't go for half board.

Very Charming

Posted Oct 9, 2008 on Hotels
This is a very charming hotel at a convinient location. Note that it's not in the center of Taormina. It's down below the hill but it's 2 minutes walking distance to the funicular that takes you up to "downtown" in just a few minutes. It's very close to the beach. Note that it's not ON the beach as it tries to tell you it is, but it's a short walk to the public beach and Isola Bella which is wonderful. The hotel itself has a private beach also but it's a shuttle-ride away and it costs about 10 Euros to use it for their own guests. The public beach is pretty good anyway and you can rent beach chairs and umbrellas there. The hotel staff are so nice and friendly that they made this stay very pleasant for us despite the weather not cooperating. There are NO sea-view rooms in this hotel. When they say sea-view, it means partial view and you have to be on the second floor or higher to have any view at all. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The only bad thing was that it's not sound-proof at all. If someone walks in the hallway of the floor below, you can hear it in your room! So pretty much everything from all rooms can be heard. The most annoying one is the sound of the flush. Decent breakfast, and the most charming courtyard with a swing:)

Excellent location between town and the beach

Posted Jul 16, 2008
Friendly and accommodating staff. I liked the location between the the beach and the town. It was a very short walk to take a van to the beach or a cable car to town. Both ran on short regular intervals. The rooms were clean and the continental breakfast was substantial. I would return to this hotel and recommend it to others. Some Italian relatives that travelled with us also enjoyed their stay.

tutti a mazzarò

Posted Aug 24, 2011 on Hotels
consiglio a tutti la vista del lido di mazzarò dai balconi dell'hotel FANTASTICA. Se dovessi fare un appunto direi che con un parcheggio più ampio sarebbe un hotel da 11 e poi un servizio navetta per più persone e/o piu celere e cortese siamo in vacanza lo so ma non c'è bisogno di stress per prendere una navetta .Lo so che attorno a noi che siamo in vacanza c'è gente che lavora e lo fa bene ,ma la cortesia e non problematiche convengono a TUTTI grazie per la gentilezza ai ragazzi del ristorante e la rececition garbata ed efficente ,FRANCO
