We stayed in el Jebel at the end of our Sicily trip. We wanted something special, and were not disappointed. Location is in the heart of Taormina, next to the duomo. Interior is truly 5-star; a small number of rooms, which are all different (they showed us a couple so we could choose). Our baby of 6 months instantly loved the place; we guess because of the light, space, and comfortable cottons. Staff takes great effort to make you feel comfortable. The rooftop terrace has magnificent views over the bay. The restaurant serves wonderful local cuisine at fair prices (e.g. 20 euros for a main course).
If I have to be picky, I could think of a few minor points. Rooms on the first floor do not have a great view. Pressure in the shower was not very high. Like in most places in Taormina, you can't drive up to the hotel, and there are stairs to get to the entrance (the staff will help you with carrying bags up). But this does not keep me for giving a high grade. We really had a great time, and would go back again without hesitation.
