Terrific in Taormina!
The San Domenico Palace was terrific. The location in Taormina is perfect; right on the hill overlooking the bay. The property is large, with beautiful gardens and patios. Very comfortable. The staff are gracious and accommodating.

Charming Hotel
Beautiful hotel in the heart of Taormina! Easy walking distance to everything. This historic hotel is quite charming, with its rich history, art, and ancient artifacts. Our room was clean and had a magnificent view of the ocean. We enjoyed the lavish buffet each morning while sitting on the patio, over looking the ocean. Our only complaint is that the air conditioner in our room made a horrible ear piercing sound and we had to sleep in a hot room without it. We ask for it to be fixed the first day we were there, but no one came to fix it. The day we left it still had not been fixed.
