We have just returned from a seven night stay at this hotel, the hotel is kept very clean with all rooms having a balcony (Fantastic view!!) and sea view overlooking the pebble beach and Isola Bella. The hotel staff spoke excellent English and were always very helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Reception staff were happy to arrange hotel transfers, excursions and give advice and print out information for trips. The buffet breakfast was plentiful with a good variety of hot and cold food. Location of hotel is also ideal, local restaurants are near and cable car to Taormina centre is only a 2 minute walk away. Overall we had a wonderful holiday and would definitely return again.
