“our favorite hotel in Sicily!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

We arrived in Taormina via train, and the hotel is about 3 km from the station. Note, the 3km hike is a bit upwards and with no defined sidewalk, it's not the most comfortable while carrying luggage. That being said, we still made it. The concierge greeted us immediately and we checked into our room. The room was more than spacious, clean, and we were on the second floor, which had a great view of the coast!

Having emailed the hotel prior to arrival with a question, they knew we were on our honeymoon and had a bottle of Prosecco waiting in our room, which was such a thoughtful touch to our stay. The hotel also sits minutes walk away from the cable car that takes you into the town, where you can shop and eat to your heart's content. The concierge was helpful in suggesting restaurants both near the hotel and also in town.

We also booked an excursion to Mt Etna while we were there, and the hotel was made aware by the company running it and made sure that we finished breakfast on time and also asked us about it on the way back. We found it nice that they noticed our whereabouts during our stay.

All in all, a wonderful relaxing stay, great location, great staff, great bedroom, great breakfast buffet with a lot of variety, and all in all, our favorite hotel to stay at in Sicily!

Room Tip: Would ask for a room on the second floor or higher to get a good view!

We enjoyed Taormina and this hotel is in a excellent location. The reception staff is very kind and does suggestions, book excursions in the island always in a friendly way. Have the breakfast at the terrace is a nice way to start the day. The beach is in a walking distance. You can also get the transportation to the city center at 200 meters from the Hotel.

Room Tip: Every room has an extraordinaire beach view

We really enjoyed Taormina and this hotel was in a perfect location - close enough to walk to the beach, and close enough to the tram up to the old town. Gorgeous views from the rooms and breakfast terrace. The rooms were modern, clean and nicely appointed. The only downside was the main street directly beneath our room (on the first floor), but the sliding glass doors kept out any noise and it was pretty quiet at night.

Superb hotel with really helpful and cheerful staff, all speaking excellent English. Located at sea level (not in Taormina centre) but only 2 minutes walk from the cablecar up into the town and has onsite parking at €10/day. Near the beach and (I think) all rooms have a view of Isola Bella bay. Excellent breakfast served on open air terrace. Clean throughout. Can't recommend it enough.

We holidayed at this hotel last year and had such a wonderful holiday that we returned again. Sometimes when you return to a place where you had such a fabulous holiday it can be a disappointment, but certainly not here! In my last review I commented on the ideal location of this hotel for going to the beach or using the cable car to go to the main street of the town, the fantastic pool and breakfast terrace. What really sets this hotel in a class of its own is the staff. We were so pleased to meet the friends we had made the previous year. Many thanks to Antonio and Pietro for their advice and patience- sources of unlimited advice to enhance your holiday. Huge thanks to Gabriele for his lovely smiling greeting and also to Monica- we miss seeing you both, great service every day. Panoramic has a 99% occupancy and there is a reason for that- if you are reading this
and planning a holiday in Taormina as we were two years ago- book it- you will not be disappointed. We are already looking forward to our next visit!

Room Tip: All great!

Unfortunately, we stayed for just one night. It must be the most perfect location in Taormina. Lovely clean hotel with a balcony overlooking the beach and Isolobella - beautiful! The pool on the roof of the hotel was stunning and the breakfast on the terrace was the icing on the cake. We are already planning our return to this 'little gem'

This hotel was just more than we hoped for. Not only is it clean and provide a yummy breakfast but it has THE BEST view of the beach and quick beach access. But the BEST thing was the staff. They went over and beyond to help us with anything and spoke Italian and English. Pietro was lovely and extremely helpful. I just can't say enough. We cannot wait to return!
