I stayed at the Villa Bianca hotel with my wife for 7 nights.
Overall I would say that it is the best 3* hotel we have stayed in so far. I have stayed at 4* hotels which have been at the same standard.
We stayed half board at the hotel, but we didn't realize the hotel was made up of 4 different buildings (if you include its sister hotel where the swimming pool is) when we booked our holiday, so when we checked in at the reception we were shocked when the porter took our luggage outside and put them into a van, but then we quickly realized that there are no footpaths, and the driving there is a bit crazy!But it didn't bother us as the main hotel where we ate our meals was a short walk away.
We stayed in the new building, and paid extra for a sea view which was lovely, and we made good use of the balcony, however i'm not sure the 100 steps to our room every day was worth the extra money - There is no lift in the new building. It didn't bother us as it was good exercise, but i cannot imagine doing that every day if you have small children or if you have walking difficulties.
The room was kept very clean every day, and the decor was new.
The food for our evening meal was delicious. You would struggle if you were a vegetarian, otherwise the selection of food was spot on.
There was a selection of local wine available with your dinner, and although it was quite expensive, it was also very good!
The waiting service was also spot on.
The reception staff were nice enough but it depends what mood you caught them in.
The cable cart to Taormina is next to the hotel, so it was very handy. It cost 3 Euros pp each way, so after a week it can add up if you want to go up there every evening.
But Taormina is such a beautiful place it is worth going to see it.
To walk back down from Taormina to the hotel was a 30 minute walk but very nice views.
We spent a couple of days using the hotel minibus to the Ipanema beach club.
It costs 8 Euros pp a day, and includes transport to the beach, sun lounger, and use of the swimming pool which was a bonus as the sea was full of stinging jelly fish while we were there.
