Nice small hotel - not modern, but everything you need... Sorry but noisy .... using elevator en water - you hear it everywhere. Swimmingpool not realy for kids - on the roof. Staff was friendly and helpfull. Taormina is a nice village.

Hotel Ipanema might not be the most modern hotel however it has beautiful surornings and views. The roof top pool has beautiful scenery surrounding it so when sun bathing guests can enjoy excellent views of the sea. Although we had problems on the first day with air conditioning and no hot water, the staff sorted out the problem very quick.... More

We stayed in room 408 between 07/06/2015 and 14/06/15. The staff were excellent. It was like being part of a family. The hotel is ideally located 5 minutes walk from the cable car to Taormina. (3€ single 6€ return) Christina on reception will help you sort out any trips around the island you would like to make. Great restaurant, Great... More

Staff were friendly, polite and helpful and Taormina itself was very beautiful. However think twice before booking with THOMSON as we experienced probably the worst customer service we have ever had abroad. The room had a stain on the bedcover and mould growing on the bathroom ceiling. We had booked a room with a bath and there wasn't one in... More

and traditionally Italian. The staff are friendly and very efficient. I stayed here in June 2014 and would definitely stay again. Our room was lovely. The location of the hotel is excellent too. The only complaint I have is that there are no tea and coffee facilities in the bedrooms. I wouldn't have minded this at all if I was... More

This is the first time that we totally disagree with other reviews on this hotel. Yes, the staff are amazing, but 'if only' everything else came up to that standard. Our room on the fourth floor was in need of decorating, and the bathroom inadequate in that there were no hooks on which to hang anything. A missing tile indicated... More

Had a good week here recently. Hotel is in a good location for beaches but to get to the town you have to get the funicular (cost 3 euros each way) or walk uphill with 400 steps. If you are quite active the walk option is very good as there are sections of steps and then some uphill walking -... More

I am a solo traveller and stayed at this hotel September 2013 - way late with this review. My first impressions were wow as I opened my balcony door and stepped out. I was overlooking the sea and the view was picture postcard perfect. It was so nice sitting on the balcony having a glass of wine and looking at... More

We have visited this superb little hotel many times. All of the bedrooms have a balcony on the same side of the hotel which is perfectly aligned for the sun. It rises on the front and sets on the rear so the balconies and bedrooms never get baked. All balconies overlook one of the prettiest bays imaginable and like the... More
