Excellent hotel for a relaxing vacation
The hotel is located across the road from a public beach. It has a swimming pool in the courtyard. The breakfast was very good and varied, offering fresh fruit juice and yogourt. The room was nice and comfortable, newly furnished. The hotel offers free parking. The area is served by regular buses from Taormina.

Small friendly hotel near beach and with pool
A super, small hotel with very friendly staff. Location was super. Quiet area of town but walking distance to nightlife and town. The hotel was small and well kept. All staff were welcoming and took great care of the hotel and guests. Communal areas were clean and tidy. Breakfast was plentiful. We had asked for a gluten-free meal and there were lots of options given-the staff had really gone out of their way. We would highly recommend this hotel to others.

Sicilian gem with pool
Fabulous hotel opposite a beach. Several inexpensive delicious restaurants within walking distance. Beautiful pool and very tasty breakfast. We had a room overlooking the sea with a balcony to watch the sunrise- amazing. Secure underground parking so we took the 3 Euro bus to nearby Tauromina which left every half an hour and saved us navigating through the narrow streets. Great place to base yourself for a few days and become immersed in authentic Sicilian life. Not an English voice heard Fantastico ! Everyone super friendly . Would definitely go back.
