“Luxury Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

My wife and I decided to have our second tour of Sicily. It is the most beautiful island with Italy’s best cuisine, wonderful beaches and stunning scenery. Our first stop was El Jebel and we fell in love with this delightful hotel and all of the excellent staff. It surely justifies its current status as one of the top Small Luxury Hotels of the World.

We stayed 2 nights at the hotel and definitely would stay there again. The hotel and furnishings are definitely 5 star and the the room and bathroom was spacious! Beds were comfortable and the breakfast room was gorgeous, just like the pictures. We loved the upstairs terrace and had drinks up there every evening! Stunning views and perfect service and drinks!
The staff was amazing, super helpful, considerate and they made over 10 calls for me since my luggage was lost for 2 days! They kept in touch with the airline lost baggage dept. constantly and having them communicate in Italian was a blessing!! They went way beyond the call of duty and for that I am eternally grateful.
I highly recommend this wonderful hotel to anyone! If I ever visit Taormina again, I would only stay at El Jebel! The location is so convenient and just in the heart of town for shopping, restaurants, etc..
We 3 loved this hotel and their staff!! thank you all again for a fabulous stay!

Room Tip: We were on the first floor so limited view, higher floor rooms would have a great view!

I stayed at Hotel el Jebel a few weeks ago with my family of five. My wife and I stayed in one of the top floor suites with a spectacular view of the harbor. The room was large, beautifully furnished, with a spacious bathroom. The breakfasts were exceptionally good. The concierge helped us out with whatever we needed (generally restaurant recommendations). It lacked a pool at the hotel, but provided transportation to its beach with a pool.

It was our second time when we stayed at El Jebel and we again were impressed with this wondeful hotel! This time we discovered for us the restaurant on the roof terrace. We spent in the hotel10 days and had time to visit a lot of restaurants in Taormina but we can say this resraurant in the hotel is the best of all!!! Stanning view which provoked us to make a lot of foto there, special atmosphere and of cause great kitchen made us fall in love with this place! Everything was so delicious! Marco, Saroj, Dario and other staff were extremely obliging and polite... We also liked to have breakfast inside, The pastry was so tasty, and other things as well! Evelyne with her careful attitude and her knowledge of Russian helped us to choose right things for our baby. Really all staff in this hotel is great! The front desk team, Antonio, Danilo, Diego are very pleasant friendly persons, who gave us a lot of useful information.
This time we stayed in another room with amazing view and we have to say that rooms there are different but all of them are luxurious, beautiful and stylish.
We definitely would like to come there again!

I booked this hotel for a luxury and romantic getaway in Taormina for my husband and I and I have to say, being quite fussy, it is hard to impress me but I was completely amazed by this beautiful hotel. The location is great ( right in the middle of the centre), which is great in Taormina as cars are not allowed and you can only walk, so this was very handy. The decor and interior of the hotel is superb with a perfect and faultless finish. The room was gorgeous, with a fab bathroom and great attention to detail. All the staff we met were very friendly, polite and helpful. There is also a terrace on the roof of the hotel with amazing views. We only stayed one night but I wished we had stayed there a bit longer. I would definitely book this hotel again.

When you stay in Taormina and want a first class experience you should strongly consider el jebel
The service and rooms are great (consider a junior suite) and definitely a meal on the rooftop
Only suggestion is that they have a few/rotating a la carte breakfast choices

we booked this hotel after looking on the web and with fantastic reviews on tripadvisor, the hotel itself was beautiful a small boutique hotel, with an amazing roof terrace where we had our dinner, the rooms were vety spacious and also wonderful, however when we woke the next morning we were told we could catch a bus to the beach club which runs every 30 mins, we waited 30 mins when a taxi arrived and told us to get in, we did he then drove and picked up a local old man and a small boy, we then drove for 20 mins to swimming pool that was rammed with local children and a stoney beach with plastic chairs, it was awful, so much so we booked a taxi and left, it was our honeymoon so the thought of 40 mins drive a day to this wasn't good, so we decided to check out and book into the great antlantis bay hotel which we loved, the beach club on the web site was not the beach club we were taken to, we were charged for 4 nights also which wasn't good.
