We have just spent a week at this hotel in Taormina and I can highly recommend it. Great breakfast and staff. Beautiful garden and breathtaking views. Spent a lot of time on the terrace gazing out over the bays below. 200 steps down to the pool but we managed fine with a 1,5 year old and a 3,5 year old.... More

We booked this hotel for a special birthday holiday and the deal came with a guaranteed sea view. It didn't disappoint. Beautiful hotel with stunning views. It is an old villa situated on top of a cliff with beautiful gardens that lead down to a lovely pool area. 184 steps may put a lot of people off but it was... More

Stayed one night and had no problems. Albeit outdated and mismatched, both the room and bathroom were large and clean, the actual shower stall was super small. Air Con was good. Major plus is the ease of car parking and the ability to bring your luggage right into the hotel without hassle. The room rate we booked online included parking.... More

We had booked a different hotel but due to be overbooked we were reallocated the Grand Hotel Miramare a few days before flying. After initial disappointment it turned out to have been a blessing. The view was incredible from our wonderful balcony. The hotel was in a quiet street and was tranquil and relaxing. The staff were helpful and friendly... More

This hotel is in great need of a makeover........beds are very uncomfortable (2 twins joined as one), small shower, water leaked onto floor when showering. Lower level, heavy musty smell. Although Italians are not known for preparing breakfast, this was the worst one by far!! If you like croissants, upon croissants, and fruit that is dry and tastless , this... More

We first visited this hotel 11 years ago. It is the only hotel we have re-visited. We stayed the week beginning 14 September. First the negatives. On arrival our room, 503, was a large room. We had 3 coat hangers in the wardrobe and one small chest of drawers to accommodate one week's worth of holiday clothes. The bell boy... More

Just back from a week at the Miramare. The hotel, internally and externally is keen to stay true to its roots as a Sicilian villa and although it enjoys a beautiful location, with some stunning views and just a short walk into the centre of Taormina, plus some very friendly and helpful staff, I can honestly say I will not...

We visited from 19 to 26 June 2014, so the review is written three months later, however the memories are still clear. The success of this hotel is due mostly to the staff. From reception through to restaurant and down to the pool, nothing was too much trouble. Booking excursions and tickets to local events and advice on travel and... More
