Very delicious food with many different spices. Friendly staff, good service. The hotel is perfect situated at about 211 meter above m.s.l. From the hotel it is possible to visit Castelmola a small cosy place upon a mountain top, climbing straight up mainly stone stairs at about 560 meters above m.s.l. giving a wonderful panoramic view.

I have never been so disappointed in a hotel. Primary complaints are with the staff and the cleanliness. Staff - The 'lifeguard' (Reno) at the pool was at best indifferent, and worst, downright rude. He was actually at the pool only half of the time - seemed to spend most time up at the hotel bar. - The breakfast staff... More

We have just come back from a 7 day stay at the Hotel Ariston in Taormina. The first thing that I have to say about Parc hotels - we've now been to two this one and one in Limone, Lake Garda ... they can certainly pick their spots!!! Ariston is perched on a hillside overlooking the Ionion Sea, it is... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and had a very pleasant stay. Hotel was situated a 5- 10 minute walk from the town of Taormina which was a lovely place to stroll around. The room was nice, with a lovely sea view, especially seeing the sun rise in the morning. The shower although by no means dirty needed... More

We can only say that we had a marvellous week at the Ariston. The room was basic but well decorated, very clean and tidy and the sea view was fantastic, although balconies are small. Lots of cupboard and drawer space and a kettle! Service from all the staff we encountered was exemplary. Food excellent. We did visit at the end... More

Beautiful views. Lovely food. And etna erupting, what else could you ask for. The pool area is very nice. And a nice deep pool. A very short walk to a plethora of restaurants and entertainment. Will definitely be going back. Only one gripe, we paid extra for a sea view and balcony. The view was amazing, the balcony only a... More

This is a 4*+ Hotel, and it deserves to be so. The Front of House Staff headed up by Mauricio, are brilliant. From the time we Checked in, with Mauricio 'performing' a Basil Faulty type humerous Welcome.....Brilliant !! This was a lovely change from the more 'stiff' 'welcomes' received in many Italian Cities we have visited. We had a Sea... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks at the Ariston in October. Loved the hotel and its grounds and pool, the location, the people working there, the food (and the wine!), the entertainment. Our room had all we needed, pleasant decor, good bathroom, comfortable beds, plenty of storage space (even a surplus of clothes hangers!, the shortage of which has always... More
