Enjoyed staying at the Ariston. We had a great room (424), and it was spotless, the views were amazing, the air-con and wi-fi were not great but adequate. Stunning gardens and pool, and only a short walk into town to the Corsa Umberto, I am singling out the reception staff for being helpful, especially the lovely Carmelina who sorted any... More

Booked for early May due to work commitments and fully expected the weather to be on the cooler side. We could not have been more wrong as Sicily was experiencing unusually hot weather for the time of year according to the locals. The Hotel Ariston is set in lovely gardens with stunning views of the bay. We quickly became accustomed... More

Situated only 5-10 mins from the main street Corso Umberto, this hotel is ideally located near the main cafes, bars and shops. We booked a sea view room (which included a complimentary bottle of wine and fruit), but it was quite noisy (internal plumbing!). However, the friendly and helpful staff did not hesitate in moving us to a quieter sea... More

The check-in process was very fast and the reception very helpful. We first had contact with the restaurant because our luggage didn’t arrive yet. At the first sight the restaurant seemed to be very crowded but because we were ith the group we had a table reservation. The restaurant: For breakfast and dinner we had buffet. Even if they were...

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
