This hotel is one of the best boutique hotels I have stayed in. Booked hotel due to positive reviews, which were all true. Transfer from the airport to the hotel and back was booked directly as we didn't rent a car knowing that the hotel offers a shuttle service to the centre and back. We were made welcome from our first step in the hotel. Upon check in we sat down at a table enjoying great views of Taormina from the terrace; my wife and i were offered prosecco whilst my 3 yr old drank some juice as a welcome drink. The receptionist gave us all the information needed as she sat with us making us feel very comfortable and 'home'. All our luggage's were taken to our room upon arrival whilst we enjoyed our drink overlooking the view. The room that was allocated to us was great, not big but ideal, with 2 beds, en suite bathroom, a balcony and a terrace - views were amazing day and night. We decided to dine at the hotel on 2 or 3 occasions. Although they do not offer a wide range of dishes, what was offered was always fresh and well prepared, cooked in traditional ways - offering anything from salad, pasta, grills, seafood and fish. Breakfast was great, afternoon tea normal and the per dinner drinks and appetizers very well presented. All the staff were very polite and spoke English very well. Our daughter was made to feel like a small princess as she was greeted with everyone by her first name. Taormina is a great place to visit. We were there in October and the weather was nice and sunny. Although for us it was a short break we really enjoyed it and will be back....to the same hotel for sure.
