Within a moment of entering the lobby, a bit harried from driving ourselves on small, winding, unfamiliar roads in the dark, we were greeted by Simona at the front desk. She said, "Please, put down your things. We will take care of everything for you. We have a glass of wine and snack waiting for you on the terrace where Olga will tell you about our hotel". Really? Wow. I could feel the stress start to leave my body. And the service and experience only got better from there. The terrace is beautiful with gorgeous views of Taormina and the sea. Our spacious and beautifully decorated room had the same views. The staff was always ready with a warm smile and helpful information and the building/grounds were very interesting and beautiful. There are two peaceful study/salon type rooms available for lounging with a good book and a glass of wine. The lounge on the top floor also has the same panoramic view as the terrace. There are several levels of lounge area on patios and a lovely pool. I would describe the breakfast as sumptuous, with a large array of warm and cold selections, savory and sweet. The location is within easy walking distance from the center of town. There really was nothing that wasn't a ten out of ten. I would come back in a heartbeat.
