I've stayed at Hotel El Jebel twice, including when I got married during my destination wedding in Taormina. If you are staying in Taormina, this is my favorite hotel in Taormina (that's not on the Mazzaro bay). Here you will find top notch, five star service, amazingly large rooms (and we all know how Europe has small hotel roms!), tastefully... More

El Jebel was the 6th, and last, hotel of our 15 night Italy tour. Taormina was the perfect ending to an amazing vacation, and El Jebel made it that much more special. We couldn't have picked a better location...steps (yes, more steps, but after two weeks what's another set of steps!) put you on the main street of this pretty... More

Hotel has a great rooms: renovated, spacious, high ceiling and great bed. Hotel is in a perfect location, right on Corso Umberto, the main street of Taormina. They don't have a pool (only downside I can think of), but has a beautiful terrace. Taormina is a cliff-town, so this hotel is perfectly located. Very good bfast also. The highlight is... More

My daughter and I spent 3 nights at The El Jebel in August. It was fantastic. We assumed we had the smallest room in the hotel but it was spacious, elegantly furnished, fresh and clean. The hotel is situated just behind the main street of the old town which is perfect for browsing the shops and restaurants. The rooftop terrace... More

It has been a long time since Taormina is not the playground of the rich and famous. It is not Cala de Volpe and certainly not Ibiza or Saint Tropez. Some Taormina hotels (e.g. Trimeo) are still - unconvincingly - trying to keep the show going. It does not hover work even if the views from the Trimeo are beautiful.... More
