We stayed 4 nights at the Bay Palace hotel during our short break in Sicily. The staff are very helpful and the hotel/our room was very clean. It's not a boutique hotel, but the room was adequately furnished and the view to the beach is amazing! We had a balcony as well from our room- 108. Rather than pay extortionate... More

Me and bf visited this hotel for a week's vacation and had the best experience! (Considering mixed reviews) We payed extra for getting a seaview, which is worth every penny with the stunning view which they have from the hotel. The staff is amazing, always very helpful with recommending places to go eat, to do etc. They made our whole... More

Just back from staying at the Bay Palace Hotel - perfectly situated near to Spisone and Isola Bella beaches, and close to the cable car to get up to Taormina town. Lovely hotel, clean and well-presented rooms. What really made it was the helpful, friendly staff who advised us to where visit, eat, etc. Would highly recommend!

This hotel is in a terrific location, just a five minute walk or so either to the cable car which takes you up to the historical part of Taormina or the beach front depending on your fancy. From the rooms, it’s just yards to an outside patio, complete with a swimming pool and a spectacular view over the coast line.... More

My very BIG THANK YOU to all reception staff in Bay Palace – to Filippo, Satu, Elena, and of course to Giovanni Sfalanga, amministratore unico. They made my stay there very pleasurable and special. They all are very good people –friendly, helpful and professional. I immediately got all the help I needed at the moment. I highly recommend Bay Palace... More

The only positive thing I could say is the rooms are big. They have a queen size bed and two single beds in the room. However everything in the room is old and needs to be replaced. The room is also pretty dirty. There is a balcony with a nice view of the coast line. We also ate dinner at... More

Our recent 4 day stay at the Bay Palace was a pleasant experience. We were lucky enough to have one of the rooms with a very spacious balcony area with an amazing ocean view! Rooms were serviced every day and were very clean. Reception staff were friendly and helpful with information about Taormina and its surrounds. My only negative comment... More

We stayed here for 7 nights in late augusti and we were a bit nervous about what we would expect after reading the reviews here, but it was not so bad. The staff at the reception were always smiling and friendly. Some of the staff at the pool area were not that friendly, but not rude either though. They just... More

Beautiful place, amazing breakfast, fantastic views and great pool! The staff was very nice and helpful, we really enjoyed our stay, that was great to be so closed to the cable station to go up to Taormina, one the most charming place I've ever seen
