Location is good and had good views from sea facing room however the hotel room needs badly to be refurbished, no control on air conditioning and it is switched off at 2 am till 6 am when you need it most to have a good night sleep especially in the month of August. Definitely we would not come here again.

The hotel's location is superb and our terrace had the most spectaculars views towards Mt Etna. It was within easy reach of the main tourist strip of cafes and restaurants and a laundrette just down the road. The only problem is parking and would definately recommend any one attempting to drive there to park in the multi storey car park... More

Once again, the hotel staff was not very friendly or helpful, quite disappointing. However, the meals were fabulous and the wait staff was excellent!! There were views of the water and Mount Etna that were breathtaking! We even saw lava flowing from Mount Etna from the rootop bar. That was a very nice place to have drinks and relax. We... More

Room was very clean, spaces and the balcony was large. We had just breakfast but we stayed for dinner in hotel occasionally... More

This is a nice hotel with various forms of art on the walls along the corridors. People were friendly at the front desk. Breakfast was part of the fee and was fine (but heir idea of orange juice and mine are quite different!). My room did' have much of a view but was spacious. I understand the complaints about loud...

Overall this hotel was great! It wasn't perfect but nothing worth mentioning. The hotel is in a great location and has a beautiful view of the Bay of Naxos and Mount Etna. If you are a picture hound like me, you will get some beautiful photo's of the sunset, Mt. Etna plus in the town itself. My favourite was taking... More

We booked this hotel for 2 nights in Taormina after a friend advised us to, but we were very disappointed. Only two things are good about the hotel: the room had a balcony with a lovely view, and breakfast is good. All other bad things: the hotel was close to a pub with live music, meaning that you couldn't go... More
