We booked this hotel because of its proximity to the sea and also to the cable-car up to Taormina. Great hotel. Large heated swimming pool. Terrific food and drink. Friendly, helpful staff. 5 star. I have already booked our holiday there for next year.

I've just got back from 3 nights away in this lovely hotel and I did not want to leave! I had a transfer booked and I'm glad I did as it is about an hours drive from Catania airport and I really just wanted to arrive and have a shower and relax. That I certainly did when I arrived! We... More

We were there for honeymoon. I think the hotel is alreadz 25 years old, because the furniture were really old, the room was stinking, and all the stuff were old. I can not understand why I have to pay 250 per night If I dont get internet for free? But they have a nice beach. If you try to sleep,... More

After reading some of the reviews about train noise, dodgy aircon and smelly rooms we were a bit concerned but upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised. Rooms are spacious, clean, all have a balcony with sea views, breakfast is to die for! Restaurant and bar offering great food and drinks and service from friendly staff unquestionable. Private beach location (decking... More

Fantastic location next to the sea. If you want to visit the city you can take the funicular, which is 5 minutes walks away from the hotel, cost 3 euro each way and offer a great view and experience. Up-side: location, atmosphere, clean pool with saltwater and not to forget the breakfast Downside: very dirty and dusty under the furnitures,... More

It is an amazing hotel with good service and excellent restaurant... close enough to Taormina, perfect to get away from the small crowded city but still close to go for a dinner. The hotel has a beautiful sea in front where you can swim. The Pizzeria they have for lunch is great and the restaurant for dinner is a very... More

The distance from Taormina is a bonus. You can escape the crowds on the cable car (runs 0745 - 0100hrs) to peace and tranquility by the sea - or so we thought. Its €3 each way or €10 for a day pass. However, the train line from Messina to Catania runs through a tunnel under the hotel. We were awake... More

Nice hotel with a friendly staff. Breakfast are lovely, taken in front off the sea. The rooms are ok, although the ventilation system could be improved, the room seems damp. Real problem is the distance from Taormina. You are really far, and need to get the funicular in order to go there. Fortunately they are very often so you won't... More

The room was beautiful and a nice terrace overlooking the bay. Unfortunately, the smell of the room was horrific. It was musty and I had to sleep with my face in a t-shirt from home that was fresh from the laundry. Not good.
