Excellent customer service, luxurious accommodations, delicious breakfast, and convenient shuttle transportation. Only downside is the ongoing barking from a neighborhood dog. I love dogs but several hours of barking each day was annoying.

Just relax and soak in the incredible views because the staff will take excellent care of you during your stay. The shuttle service is the perfect feature to allow you to enjoy the town without the worry of driving/parking in the hills of Taormina. From sunrise to sunset you simply can’t beat the vista of sea and Mount Etna!

Great stay
Incredible breakfast. Friendly and welcoming staff, even parked our car for us and gave us great advice about climbing Etna. Beautiful views and great location. Rooms are small but we had a very big balcony with sea view.
