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.

This is no where near a 5-star hotel with only 10 rooms without much facilities. There isn't a clear sign telling us where the hotel is. We have been going in circles in the taxi for 30mins and in the end had to get off the car to walk along the path to find the hotel. For the price we... More

We recently spent two nights at this hotel and it was wonderful. It is located in the town of Taormina. You need to climb a large set of stairs get there. It is a small hotel and what makes it special is the service. There is no parking on the property so you have to park at the public parking... More

If traveling to Taormina, staying at El Jebel is a definite must. The hotel affords you the immaculate service of the best B&B's (only 10 rooms!) combined with the comforts and amenities of a luxurious 5-star resort. The hotel is in a perfect location to explore the pedestrian area of Taormina. Special acknowledgement goes out Danilo from the front office... More
