The very best part of staying here is the staff. They were just superb and were always helpful and happy to deal with any issue. But generally this is a tired hotel in need of some uplift. The rooms were good but in my room the shower cubicle was so small I could not get in or out without the door rubbing my body and when showering my elbows would touch each side. I am not overweight so if you are it would be a problem. The food was OK but breakfast was very very average and predictable. Evening meals were average to sometimes good but not a great choice and the chef always cooked any veg to death - pity. Location was very good 5 min from the cable car stop up to Taormina and near the sea. Views from the balcony were side on but quite pretty bays. Rooms above 405 were best so as to avoid road noise - this was not bad and would be an issue with most hotels in this area. Rooms on the fifth floor are best but limited. The pool had little space around it for lounging and it had a crack all along one side wall - this could be due to subsidence or past earth tremors but not great to see. The sun deck was OK but a bar service or even a drinks machine would have been welcome. Overall a good base but not a luxury experience.
