Stayed early September 2011. High price, but good service. Doesn't have the pool and other features some neighboring high end properties have, but rooms are large and clean.

We stayed at El-Jebel mid-september 2011. Initially we had planned to stay only 2 nights and move on. We ended up extending it to 5 nights; that is to say the total duration of our stay in the region. We even changed our return tickets to be able to spend the last day there..That's how much we loved it! As... More

We returned this week from a fabulous trip to Sicily and spent our last night in El Jebel. There are only 10 rooms and we upgraded to a suite when there which was just stunning - without doubt one of the nicest rooms I have ever stayed in! Great service, lovely breakfast, fantastic views over the town and very centrally... More

AMAZING!!!!!!! What a gem find. it is perfectly located right off the main street, Corso Umberto which makes getting around most easy. It is a boutique 10 roomed hotel that has only been open for about 3 years and doesn't yet feature in most of the guidebooks but it does on tripadvisor and I can see why. The whole hotel... More

Just spent 4 days and nights at El Jebel in Taormina with my boyfriend. We had spent 3 weeks travelling Europe and on the whole all the hotels were great, however, El Jebel was a stand out.

On the positive side: the hotel is located in the center and there are lots of restaurants and bars in the vicinity. rooms are big and clean. Hotel is quiet.

El Jebel is not only in a great location, but the hotel itself is absolutely beautiful with an amazing view. Different from other 5* hotels in Taormina, El Jebel is a small luxury hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. Their tips for restaurants and sightseeings made our trip to Taormina smooth. I recommend the hotel to anyone going... More
