We have just returned from a fabulous six night stay in beautiful Taormina. While there we stayed at the "Hotel Monte Tauro". It was a great choice. This beautiful hotel is situated built into the cliff side just below the Main Street in Taormina. Everything about this place is fantastic. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a Suite due to... More

A breathtaking hotel overlooking the sea within few steps away from Corso Umberto. The staff is friendly and very helpful, the rooms were clean and when we arrived we found fresh fruit. The breakfast buffet was fine and good. The only bad aspect was that there is only one lift and we had to wait for it always.

This is no where near a 4star hotel..if you've travelled far and wide you would know the standards expected for a star of this rating. The reception area was most unimpressive including the staff, very unwelcoming !!,we had to wait for 2:30 hours for our room, not offered a drink etc in heat of 35degrees!,The room was very basic, no...

This hotel has several positive aspects. All rooms are sea views. Breakfast is pleasant if sporadic. The pool is large with a great view of the bay. However the no children spouted by Thomson is rubbish. Lots of screaming infants, teenagers etc. Worse a no nappy toddler in the pool-and we all know what that means! One slow lift which... More

This hotel is in a spectacular spot, if you have a room high enough you have beautiful views over the coastline below and of Mount Etna. We stayed at Easter, slightly out of peak season and the hotel wasn't busy, I'm not sure I'd want to stay here in peak season though. I don't believe it's a four star quality... More

Lovely hotel, very friendly and helpful staff, wonderful breakfasts. The pool area got a little crowded if one wanted to sunbathe as one side of it was in the shade late afternoon, in the mornings and early afternoon fine. The pool staff were great. The location was excellent near the centre but a bit of a steep.

When the transfer from the airport arrived at the hotel we where a little taken back as there is a very steep hill down to the entrance of the hotel .

Having seen all of the wonderful reviews, I was surprised to discover that this is an over-rated, tatty hotel with very limited commodities and lacklustre service. Having stayed in hundreds of hotels world-wide, this is not 4 star. The reception staff are abrupt, which although annoying, can often be the case in this part of the world and should probably...

We stayed here in May. The rooms were comfortable, large enough and with a balcony which overlooked their pool and the hill below. It is built into the hill and is an impressive feat of engineering. Their advice for sightseeing was excellent. There are lots of great restaurants in Taormina and we found better advice about food elsewhere.
