Beautiful hotel with lovely grounds just a few yards from the main part of Taormina. The view from the roof top terrace at breakfast is just stunning. The staff were also great, very friendly and helpful at all times. The breakfasts are really superb with a wide choice and freshly squeezed orange jiuce every morning - beautifully prepared, presented and... More

We are here at off season so the value is extremely good and we prepaid and received a 30% discount. The vibe of the hotel is fantastic. Newly renovated, it the perfect place for... More

The pool and bar/restaurant facilities were faultless! The views from the breakfast room are just breathtaking and very peaceful! There's a tranquil and overall very relaxing feel to the whole hotel, a lovely pool and terrace area with again just stunning views. If I had to be picky the pool is a little on the small side, but the hotel... More

Because this hotel is small, it offers its guests that little bit extra. The rooms/suites are located in the main building and two separate wings. The room we occupied had a small garden patio which was very secluded and quiet. Although it is only a few minutes away from the bustling town of Taormina it felt like you were well... More

This 25 room hotel in the hilltop village of Toarmina, is a tranquil escape from the tourist traffic. Renovated to an exacting standard, the spacious rooms, excellent decor and fittings and warm and genuine staff make this a first class experience. While not having views of Mt Etna, the location of the hotel and the quiet , unhurried ambience make... More

Loved it! From the moment we approached this beautifully appointed property I just knew I was going to enjoy our stay. Whilst this hotel feels quite grand it also felt homely and the foregrounds and view are simply stunning. Breakfast on the rooftop is amazing with fabulous friendly staff who couldn't do enough to please. Our room no 12 wasn't... More

This hotel has made our stay in Sicily very special, in fact we didn't want to leave the grounds we were so looked after by the staff. Would definately recommend to friends and family and would love to return. Breakfast was amazing, hot chocolate cake straight from the oven, freshly baked bread and plenty of fresh fruit. The location was... More
