“Great hotel in Taormina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Had planned to stay in this hotel for 3 nights but due to my son getting we ended up staying 6 ( would have stayed the 7th night but the hotel was fully booked!) Great hotel with modern comfortable rooms looking over isola bella.on arrival one of the toilets in the room did not flush, no big deal as there was another one- mentioned this in passing to one of the staff and on arrival back to the room the issue was fixed Rooms were spacious and clean and staff were very friendly and accommodating. Parking was available just beside reception and was no problem. The location of the hotel is very good and just 2 min walk to the cable cars which bring you right into the center of town. Breakfast was excellent and the staff could not have better, everything was fresh and of good quality plus the view while having breakfast was excellent looking over the bay and onto the island. Very nice hotel and the kids loved it

We have just come back from 4 wonderful nights at the Panoramic Hotel. I work in hospitality and as such am particular about hotels, and I have to say the Panoramic is excellent on every level.

The location is stunning. Every room looks right out onto the beach and Isola Bella beyond. The parking is easy with the staff taking care of valet parking for you.

The rooms are great. Spotlessly clean, with modern bathrooms, furniture, good lighting, quiet and well insulated. No noise from the corridor or rooms above.

The breakfast is taken on a gorgeous terrace on the 4th floor, with everything you could possibly need to choose to eat.

There is a lovely pool and sun terrace on the 5th floor.

The staff are a huge asset of this hotel. All unfailingly charming, helpful above and beyond, great English, and knowledge of the surrounding areas.

One of the nicest things was that our BA flight wasn't until after 7 in the evening, and even though we had checked out at noon, the staff stored our luggage all day, and then were very happy to park our car in their garage, and let us use the pool and shower to freshen up before we left for the airport.

All in all, if you are looking for hotel in Taormina, don't hesitate to choose this one! A room tip - room 107 is a two room suite with a day room with a bathroom, separate tv and balcony, and a night room with large double bed, another bathroom and balcony. A lovely treat for our anniversary.

This really is a great hotel, excellent location below busy main town but with easy access via cable car and directly in front of Isola Bella - fantastic view from everywhere in the hotel.
The hotel itself is also good, clean and modern with comfortable rooms and good common areas including large roof top pool and deck area.
Hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful and parking service excellent.
I would not consider another hotel in Taormina.

My wife and I are completing a 4 night stay tomorrow at this great Hotel. The location was excellent for beach access and to visit Isola Bella. Also, it's an easy 5 minute walk to the lift to take you to Toarmina. The staff was first class and met all our needs immediately and with a big smile. We have traveled to Italy before (3 times) but this is our first visit to Sicily. The Hotel Panoramic is one of the best hotels we have ever had the privilege to stay at. The staff treats you like your part of their family and are very helpful in giving directions to where ever you want to explore. We had room 301 and the views of the sea and Isola Bella were outstanding!!!!!!!! Note: Any room on the 3rd floor would be excellent. The breakfast had a nice variety of meats, cheeses, breads, cereal, yogurt, juices, and sweets to pick from. Good covered parking area with valet parking. The Hotel has a great pool, bar, and lounge area to have a glass of vino and enjoy the views of the sea, and listen to the sea waves.

Room Tip: Pick a room on the 3rd floor. Buy a week pass for the lift to Toarmina.

This was our first trip to Sicily and we certainly weren't disappointed! The hotel was great and the staff were so helpful and friendly. We stayed for 6 nights. The room was comfortable and had fabulous views of the Isola Bella and although there is a train line quite close by, it didn't bother us at all. The breakfast was good, loads of choices and there is also a great bar, for snacks and drinks in the evening.
The hotel is really close to the cable car, which takes you up to Taormina in about 3 minutes which is very pretty.Alternatively you can walk up to the town, not for the faint hearted, but the views are fabulous.
The Panoramic is just the perfect place to stay!

This was a return trip to Sicily after a gap of 9 years, and we will not leave it so long again.The Panoramic hotel staff were all excellent, being both friendly and knowledgeable about local restaurants and visitor attractions.

On our only wet day it was recommended that we go to the Gambino winery on Mt.Etna, and despite the weather this turned out to be a real highlight. We would never have thought of it had not the staff come up with the idea.

Hotel rooms, pool and terrace area are all very good, and we have no hesitation in recommending the hotel to anyone thinking of visiting this part of the island.

Stayed at Panoramic Hotel for 2 nights in mid April. Taormina is the gem of Sicily (granted we didn't see the whole island but we certainly drove around a lot)!
The town works it's way up the clifftop with the restaurants, tourist attractions (ruins of the Greek theatre) etc at the top. Panoramic is down at the beach and would really recommend staying there. You can catch the cable car up to town (it's only a short walk from the hotel and a bit of a novelty).
All the rooms at the hotel look out to the sea, a beautiful little cove with Isola Bella (an idyllic, storybook island) in front. The beach is a pebble beach and it's hard to get into the sea for a swim but if you take 'jelly' shoes, you'll be fine.
The hotel itself is fine; modern & clean. You don't see the staff much, reception is minimalistic and there's not restaurant (they do a good breakfast but that's it) but the facilities are good. There's a lovely rooftop pool and as it was early in the season we had it to ourselves which was a treat.
I think it's quite pricey for what it is - we paid £160 a night but you pay for the view and Taormina in general is expensive - be warned!
While we're on the subject of cost, save €30 for a couple of cocktails at Hotel Grand Timeo. It's a 5* colonial hotel at the top of town with excellent service and amazing views. Expensive but a lovely place for an evening drink as the sun goes down.
