Stayed in Sept 2013. Lots of good points: breakfast - fine lunch/dinner - excellent beach - nice(except for the constant stream of hawkers) shuttle bus - really useful train line - quirky(but could clearly be a problem to some) We were enjoying our stay and thinking that we would definitely return when it was all spoilt on the Friday &...

Very convenient hotel 10 minutes from Taormina center. It's very easy to get there by free shutle bus provided by the hotel.The only disadvantage of the hotel is a railway that is situated very close to the hotel.

We were very pleased with the hotel and its facilities. The room was excellent, there was a good choice of food at the buffet breakfast and the staff were helpful and friendly. The restaurant was located close to the beach and most of the meals we had there were very good. Unfortunately the hotel is located between the railway line... More

The view from the hotel was incredible. The sunsets were amazing. The sunrises were truly unforgettable. The beach was clean and peaceful. The hotel room was very spacious as was the bathroom. The bed was comfortable. The hotel was once a 5 star hotel, but now needs a little Tender Loving Care (TLC). In addition to having exposed wires in... More

Stayed here during a conference. It is situated in front of a most lovely beach easily accessible from the hotel. There is a railway line passing just in front of the hotel near the beach so it can get noisy at the restaurant. As long as the metal shutter doors in the rooms are shut, you will not hear a... More

We just returned from a 19 day vacation to Italy where all of our reserved hotels were wonderful with the exception of the Caparena. The problems we encountered with our hotel and room are almost too numerous to list. Here are just a few: bathroom sink leaked onto the floor (bucket needed to catch the water), mildew smelling halls, worn... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights in October 2013 as part of a trip booked through Citalia. Firstly, the hotel has a fantastic private beach that is clean and well serviced. However just about everything else was a disappointment. You need to understand that this is not a luxury hotel, the bedrooms are dormitory accommodation for the health... More

Stayed here September 2013 for 3 nights. Wouldn't come again. Plus was the beach which we loved. Minuses exceeded plusses however. The rooms are clean but getting tired, with some cracked tiles in the bathrooms and chips out of the bottom of the doors (2 rooms the same). Mildew in the shower grout. Heard other guests complaining about that too.... More

We traveled to Taormina for 1st time in Sept 2013 and stayed at Hotel Caparena and Wellness Club. Hotel was a "B+" but hotel had a beach that bumped it to an "A"! Food and staff were good and friendly. Ate mostly in Taormina on which sits high on the hill. Hotel beach was great with all amenities expected. Water... More

Although we read reports very often, we did not write anyone before. There are many reasons why we do this for the first time. The main reason is numerous of mostly bad reviews we saw just before we arrived so were not sure what to expect. We couldn't have been more surprised - it is absolutely fantastic. Clean, friendly, food... More
