Spent Wednesday - Sunday at the hotel, which was small but impeccable. The front desk was very helpful in restaurant suggestions, as well as coordinating a couple day trips for me to take in Sicily. The room are very comfortable, with fantastic views over Taormina and the sea. They have a fantastic breakfast that was included in my room fee,... More

Spent 4 nights in February 2014. Great location right off Corso Umberto. Helpful staff. They helped me track down my lost bag in Catania. Great room and beautiful dinning room and terrace. Great breakfast. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to friends.

Excellent luxury hotel with only 10 rooms. Staff is very friendly and dedicated. The hotel is in Taormina Ciampoli castle in front of the Duomo, a church of the XIII century. The scenery is stunning: oceanfront view and Etna volcano with its lava at night . The rooms are large and comfortable, elegant and spacious bathroom. The chef of the... More

We just got back from a three night stay at El Jebel and it was fantastic! We had to come out of season as we were planning our wedding for September in Taormina,but you would never have guessed as the staff and service was fantastic! The hotel is perfectly located on the main street in Taormina with a short walk... More

We stayed at Taormina for a single night, booking in advance at El-Jebel. The hotel is beautiful from the inside. We stayed in a room which had a nice Sicilian-Baroquian style with a great care to details. On arrival, the staff requested for me and my life-partner's passports. Noticing that she had her birthday that day, they treated us with... More

This is a fabulous small boutique hotel in Taormina. It is set back a bit from the street, so while you are right in the heart of things, you don't feel swept up witht the crowd. The room and bathroom was quite large and nicely decorated. Free WIFI and amazing breakfasts were also great. The rooftop terrace has a lovely... More

We stayed 2 nights in December. The staff is really nice and helpful. We were upgraded to a junior suite but still the rooms are rather small and so was the closet.There is a fabulous panoramic roof terrace from where we could see the city and the vulcano. Breakfast is very good. Wifi works well and is free. The rooms... More

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of October and have a wonderful stay. The hotel is in the perfect spot, right in the middle of the old town, but set back just enough that you feel out of the hustle and bustle when in your room. We stayed on the 2nd floor with a sea view. Our room... More

Our suite was beautiful. Stunning views of the sea and Etna. Excellent breakfast. This is a small boutique hotel (9 rooms I think) - don't expect the range of facilities you would find in a bigger 5* establishment. Charming service from Evelyne and Saroj. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful stay at El Jebel and the staff was very prompt to respond to all our needs, from breakfast choices to excursion tips. And above all, our son was spoiled constantly by Evelyne and Sanjor. We will definitely go back.
