We spent a week here in 2011 and could not wait to return. How do you improve on perfection? Well, Rosaria and her wonderful team had made some decorative changes to our room, all delightful, and we had a memorable stay again. The weather in the third week of May was superb and the magnificent views of the beautiful bay and Mount Etna are incomparable. Everything at this wonderful hotel is excellent, from the start to the finish of every day's stay.
We hired a car from Catania airport, and this gave us the freedom to travel to some of the beautiful sights of Sicily, including the ancient city of Syracuse and the incredible Greek temples at Agrigento, as well as being able to drive down to the town of Taormina whenever we wanted. However, for people who don't want to rent a car, the hotel provides convenient and frequent free shuttle service to and from Taormina, just a few minutes away by minibus. This is a very useful service especially in the evening as it allows you to have a few glasses of wine with dinner, if you wish, as you don't have to drive afterwards.
