Me and my wife stayed at El Jebel in may for 7 nights. The location is excellent, just in the middle of the town. We had a room on the second floor (dedicated to the Sicilian Baroque). The room was amazing - hight ceilings, large, full of light with views of see, Mt. Etna and the Cathedral. The bed was... More

This is a real Classy Hotel with a very Homely touch and the staff is just incredible, the only downside some guests to this hotel is that one could miss out on some very important features that a 5 star hotel has, somethings like a pool and gym are missing and which is available in similar hotels in Taormina.

My mother and I shared a room at El Jebel for 4 nights and we felt really sad to leave. We were in a junior suite which was bigger than I expected and we loved having the extra sofa to lounge on, massive bed and HUGE bathroom. On the first floor so no view but hey, you can't have everything.... More

This is a wonderful 5 star hotel. It is small and in the center of Taormina, so that one can go from the main street to the hotel with only a few steps. The room, the beds, the linen, the bathroom were all impeccable. Breakfast was terrific. It was a wonderful experience. The only thing to understand is that there... More

Had a really good time. The staff were warm and welcoming. The rooms were stunning. Views were great and the restaurant food was awesome. Highly recommend it. Worth the 5 stars.

We ate at their fabulous restaurant Ciampoli- and asked if we could take a peek at the rooms. Gorgeous! I would choose this hotel if you want to be in the heart of the town and need some luxury!

We stayed here for 3 nights for my wife's birthday. Service is great. Rooms are great. You have never seen so much closet space in a room. Antonio is fantastic! The only negative is lots of steps and lots of walking.

In mid May we spent three fabulous days at El Jebel. It is a very easy stroll from Porto Catania where the taxi dropped us to the hotel - about 150 meters down Corso Umberto and just after the Duomo to the left up a few steps. Travelling light meant we did not need to contact the hotel to meet... More

We arrived at the hotel on 30 April 2012 at lunchtime and we were very warmly welcomed by the two staff memebers, a young lady and a gentleman, whom I trurly commend and congratulate for the excellent level of service that was provided to us. We were immediately taken care of, shown a map of Taormina and explained all the... More
