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

A group of 12 people including 3 small children arrived at Bay Palace late in the evening. We were tired and our first impressions were not favourable because the parking situation was less then ideal. After some comforting words from Filippo, we settled in for the night. In the morning we awoke in a room with a view of the... More

I had mixed feelings about this hotel, the reviews showed that some guests likes it while others just did not! On the whole we had a very good stay, the rooms were excellent, fantastic views. The amenities were good and the staff were helpful. The breakfast was plentiful and any empty trays were quickly replaced. You are only 6 minutes... More

Just completed a week at this hotel in July 14. Having read the reviews people either like it or hate it, we liked it. The first experience was arriving in our hire car and trying to get parked. The drive is narrow and steep and the smell of slipping clutches could often be smelt. The so called argry man helped... More

Having read the mixed reviews, we weren't sure what to expect. Overall, however, we couldn't fault the hotel and were very impressed. Staff were very hospital, in particular the manager was very welcoming. The hotel is in a good location, very close to the beach, supermarket and the funicular to take you to the town (which is stunning). Views from... More

We had the privilege of spending 4 nights in Bay Palace hotel in the beginning of May 2014. We found this hotel pleasant, clean, great atmosphere, beautiful view, staff very kind and ready to help, and good food (half board).
