The hotel is very nice beach location, ten minutes bus ride into Taormina. The train didn't bother us but the staff as others have mentioned absolutely let the place down and general disorganisation. As a group of 12 we turned up at the beach bar on our first day and they had no beer! The staff do not interact at... More

This hotel was very comfortable had lots of facilities and we had a very large room with a sea view. The room was a bit austere could of had some floor coverings. The view was spectacular and the hotel has its own beach. The location was not central so there wasn't much around to see unless you got a taxi.... More

The Hotel Caparena is, essentially, on the beach at the base of the mountains on which Taormina is perched. Because there is so little flat area, the lovely grounds of the hotel are separated from the Mediterranean by a train line, but there is an easy pass-through so getting to the water is not an issue. The hotel itself is... More

Room was basic, lovely fitted bathroom shame about the mould on the ceiling. Overlooking the sea and saw beautiful sunrises in the morning. Air con was noisy as it clicked on and off all night and couldn't seem to adjust it. Best breakfasts of all the hotels we staying in on our tour. Wifi inky in reception

Not even sure where to begin. We were on a tour of Sicily and the tour organizer promised Hotel Diodoro in Taormina or SIMILAR. Guess what? The devil is in the last phrase, OR SIMILAR. Apparently, the Diodoro which is right outside the gates of Taormina is a sister hotel of the Hotel Craperana. I later found out from my... More

Stayed in room at back of hotel with view of a wall. Two busy roads with traffic all night. Room recently refurbished but not completely finished - bare wires, only 4 hangers, no mirrors in room, plaster work not finished. Bathroom is a "wet" room and the shower spreads water across whole bathroom! Stayed with a tour party - the... More

We stayed at this hotel on a tour of Sicily. A beautiful spot, almost on the beach. the only drawback was the railway line that is situated between the hotel and the beach. Access to the beach is possible due to a tunnel. The trains could be heard in the bedroom, not very loud but audible. Food was very good,... More

Ok - so the good things first! We have a room with a view out over gardens and to the ocean. They have a shuttle bus to Taormina. It's clean. Overall tho', unless you prefer to stay out of the gorgeous little town of Taormina, give it a miss. Wifi only in the foyer. Limited food service (i.e. no lunch... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights. It has wonderful water views if you get a balcony with specific water views. The food in the restaurant is very good. It has an indoor pool and long sandy beach. It is nicely landscaped. Must have a car or with a travel company to get around. Taxies are available and about... More

This hotel exceeded our expectations in terms of service and the quality of the food in the restaurant. Almost all the waiters in the restaurant and bar really tried to make your visit special. They were generally attentive and helpful. Reception staff were always extremely polite and helpful. The only disappointment was the beach bar which offered a very limited... More
