We stayed at this hotel in June 2012 and forgot to write a review. It's been on our conscience because some of the reviews we read before we went were mixed and we felt they didn't reflect our experience. The hotel is in an ideal location, right next to a very attractive bay. The view from the balcony is picture... More

Hotel is dated but that does not distract from the superb position overlooking the bay in Taormina Mare. We kept expecting Hercule P to waddle by it was that sort of place. The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble particular Christina in reception, Santos and Vincenzo in the restaurant. They were all friendly and helpful which made... More

This was a disappointing hotel that has seen better days. On the plus side the staff go out of their way to help and to cover for the proprietor's lack of vision, the location is good, evening meals are good and rooms are comfortable. There are, however, just too many negatives, most of which result from poor management. Staffing is... More

Not a boutique hotel, and far from a luxury hotel..this old run down turn of the century flop house offers nothing in terms of modernization and comfort. Although the rooms are clean, the plumbing can be heard throughout the bldg....very noisy and stuffy as well... Vincenzo in dining room was excellent. Bar mgr a miserable person...puss on at all times...seems... More

This hotel is in a good location. The rooms are fine with a nice view although rather noisy. it was as if every time anyone in the corresponding room on any of the floors above us used the bathroom the water pipes came through our room. We could also hear the showers of all the surrounding rooms somehow amplified -... More

Before we went on holiday I looked at the reviews on here and we approached it with a few concerns. However, we feel all the negatives listed are petty, nit-picking or unfounded. We had a superb time in the Ipanema. The staff are absolutely fantastic and go the extra mile (kilometre) to make your stay special. The food is outstanding... More

The hotel is very clean and comfortable with good facilities. As all the other reviews state the staff make the place. From our lovely waiters Vincenzo and Alfio; the efficient restaurant manager Mario, the effervescent and efficient bar manager Mario and the receptionists. We were lucky enough to be on the 5th floor which seems to be the best. Our... More

Okay.....it's an old hotel and I really don't understand how it's 4 stars. The location is good and the staff are better than some others in Italy and Sicily. The food at breakfast is okay. We were going to eat at their Friday night Buffet but after a drama with our aircon over night and having to change rooms then... More

Just returned from 2 weeks at the Ipanema what a lovely friendly place all the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were basic but comfortable and the view from the balcony was lovely.
