I stayed there for a week in summer of 2013. The hotel is clean, the staff friendly, the breakfast very good, and the room quiet and comfortable. The only problem I had was with the internet which is not available in the room - I had to go down to the lobby to use it. Later, I learned that this... More

Great location, close to the beach and the cable car to Taormina - you get the best of both worlds. Reasonable price compared to the average in the area. Not overly clean (especially the bathroom and the shower), but it was ok, not too bad. Very humid in the hotel and it does not smell so good. Free wifi in... More

We stayed in Bay Palace Hotel for 11 nights at the end of July. Hotel is very well located minutes from all the beaches and only short cable car ride from lovely Taormina town. We have booked room with a sea view and it was well worth paying little extra as the view of the bay was amazing. When exploring... More

I must start by saying this Hotel was clean and tidy enough. For me that is where it ended. On arrival we opted for an upgrade for a room with a view which was a lovely view i may add which cost £10 a night extra. Food was very disappointing considering we were in Italy. You ordered your choice for... More

We had the most beautiful sea/beach view and were absolutely delighted. The rooms were clean and spacious. Bathroom could do with a spruce, but it was all perfectly good. Breakfast was included and was continental, good choice available and all fresh. They're really strict with people taking food out of the breakfast area with them (!) we saw the owner... More

Beautiful setting. Good sized rooms by Italian standards, very clean. Dinner by pool, breakfast on breakfast room balcony overlooking the bay. Combination safe. Wifi in Reception area. Airport transfer: either take funicular railway (station near hotel) or taxi to Bus Terminal (or Stop as a taxi driver called it). Buy ticket on day of travel from booth on site. Bus... More

The only thing going for this place is the VIEW. Everything else is regretable. Rooms, location, food. This is NOT a four star hotel, not even a three, closer to two stars if at all. How do hotels get there rating? Parking is terrible. Only space for about 5-6 SMALL cars and is up a steep ramp. To manuver into... More

We stayed here for two nights and were pleased with the location and generous breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful, too. However, it is really not a for star hotel, but more like three plus. The room was clean, but sparse and the extra refrigerator at the foot of the bed was rather strange. It felt dated , but... More

This hotel has a really nice view and a big pool and is worth all the Money. Breakfast is super. Dont eat there in the evening - Dolphin and Marina are nearby restaurants with very good value.
