This is a great place when you go to the eastern part of Sicily A lot of fine appartments, all with enough space to enjoy your stay. There is no television, and only wifi at the reception but we never missed it. The rooms are a bit outdated, but then, the views are great, especially from the breakfastroom and the... More

Terra Rossa is perfectly situated between the centre of Taormina and the sea. The highlight of this place is the view. Looking out from any window pretty much gives you a view of the hills, beach and sea. The apartments and the hotel are pretty rustic with unique bits of furniture used to decorate the place. This gives it a... More

As many other reviews, I can't but agree about the beutiful view and garden. After a week at Terra Rossa we were in better shape than when we came with the 350 steps down to the beach as to the citycentre. Yet the hotel has a lot more potential! Here are my suggestions for improvement. Aircondition - During spring and... More

Terra Rossa is a perfect little apart-hotel... It's a brief walk away from the center of Taormina or the beaches down below. Not only do the apartments have small kitchens, for those who would like to cook some nights and avoid always dining at restaurants, but there is also a swimming pool - which is fantastic if you're too tired...

In Taormina for a week in August. The accommodation was one of the best I've been to. Everything seemed to be kept clean and tidy, but had some plants overgrowing which kept in with the Italian style. We had an apartment with a balcony and a patio which both overlooked the hills and the sea. There were great views at... More

Great staff, great location and great apartments. The gardens are lush and a cool retreat in the heat of the day. The swimming pool is lovely and overlooks the bay below Taormina towards Isola Bella. Went beginning of June when the flowers were in full bloom and they were stunning. The restaurants up the hill (steep set of steps) are... More

This is a very nice place to stay if you plan a visit to Taormina. The view is magnificent with Isola bella in the front and the medeterrenian beyond. The garden is also fantastic. Be aware that there are many steps to the beach (app 350 steps) and also a pretty hard walk to get into the towncentre - expect... More

Loved our stay here in an upstairs 2 bed apartment with fabulous views of isola bella. Sparsely furnished but great for a holiday and cleaned everyday. Pool warm in early June as was the crystal clear sea. Itis a rocky bay so swim shoes are useful, if you like snorkeling it is amazing! We walked everywhere, up and down the... More

We stayed at Terra Rossa after booking with Airbnb. The location is stunning, which in turn means that access by foot virtually requires mountaineering expertise, while an approach by car is not for the faint-hearted! We had a lovely little apartment, with a view to die for and all the necessary amenities. Wifi is available within the reception area. We... More

I decided to go in via the steps. In up to my knees, then I retreat. It's b**** freezing! Ok...let's have another go. It doesn't seem quite as cold the second time. Right - it's up to my waist. Just a quick jump, bend the knees....I'm in. In ice clear water that is the pool in the middle of utopia.... More
