This hotel is an oasis in the otherwise quite touristic Taormina. The hotel premises are gorgeous. We had a superior hotel room with sea view and if I pushed the curtain aside far enough and leaned out the window I could indeed see the sea, Etna and the beautiful hotel gardens, however, I could not really see much of that from inside the room. There are some rooms with balconies, which might have a better view. I thought the price was a little steep for that kind or room, though the room was very clean and comfortable. I think one should consider spending less on the room (just get a normal room and spend $100.- less) and just enjoy the spectacular views from the garden or swimming pool.
Breakfast is served on a terrace with more extraordinary views and the breakfast buffet is amazing. The most wonderful thing about this hotel is to just wander around and soak up the atmosphere. We really enjoyed it and would come here again any time.
