“The Perfect Honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We went here in October 2012 for our honeymoon and WOW! When you arrive through an automatic gate you are met by a porter to carry your bags down some steps and through a well-designed tunnel where you reach reception. I asked my wife to wait outside and went into reception where Giuseppe was waiting with a large grin on his face. He was expecting us, and confirmed that they had made some "special arrangements" for our first night of our honeymoon. He walked us round to our private bungalow, it was dark at this point but we could hear waves lapping on the beach. They also arranged at this point for dinner to be brought to our garden. When my wife opened the door to the bungalow, even though I knew about the special arrangements, we were both blown away. The whole room had been scattered with rose petals, and a bottle of champagne on the side waiting for us with a congratulatory note from the staff. Our bungalow was large, neat, clean and well presented. The garden was amazing with a hammock, table and chairs, sun loungers and the best of all a clean and hot Jacuzzi. In the morning when the sun came up we saw actually how amazing this place was. Dinner and breakfast could be eaten overlooking the sea and Isola Bella. The beach was quiet, private and clean. The staff at the hotel would bend over backwards to help, even to the point that I had run out of cigarettes and the restaurant manager gave me a pack of his own free of charge. To finish off our honeymoon we booked dinner on the beach which blew our minds. Our own table within feet of the lapping waves, torches lit the way and we had our own waiter standing by. The food was out of this world. I would certainly recommend this hotel to couples and we cannot wait to return again and again for anniversaries. We are not the sort of people who would return to the same place no matter how good it is, but this place is so heavenly that it must be the exception to our rule.

Room Tip: The bungalows with sea view are amazing!

This hotel was a 100% satisfactory experience! If I would come back to Taormina it would be to stay longer in this hotel than the one day I only had this time. The location is just amazing. The service is great. The breakfast out on the terrace is simply a dream and the restaurant is good. There is free wifi and a small but clean and modern gym. Take a bungalow directly on the seaside. The other bungalows may not have a sea view. The bungalows are not big but have all the comforts and the little gardens with lounge chairs, hammocks and in some cases jaccuzi are great. The beach is a pebble beach. The swimming is great. To Taormina centre it's a 5 minute walk to the cablecar and then 5 minutes with the cable car. It's faster than by car. Taormina itself is a nice but noisy tourist town so I wouldn't want to stay inside the town.

Room Tip: Ask for the bungalow directly on the seaside as they are the best.

We stayed here for 3 nights in a bungalow with a garden view. Location wise- hotel is great, right on the very picturesque beach of isola Bella. Cable car is about ten min walk away which was also very convenient for getting to town.
The restaurant was also absolutely fantastic -tasty food, polite staff and lovely sea views. Restaurant is a little pricey, however it is well worth the extra.
The bungalow was very cute, modern and very clean. The staff even turn up twice a day to clean and freshen up the room- super service!!! Definitely recommend hotel - 5* luxury! One minor downside is train runs along back of hotel- however this did not bother us during our stay.

5+++stars! An absolutely fabulous resort! I'd stay here again and again. The staff was friendly, polite and always helpful. Great location, quick walk (up a small hill of course) to the cable car.

Our room was awesome. It was cleaned and then cleaned again with turn down service. Always fresh towels and crisp clean sheets. We had a great little sea/garden view villa. Perfect little outside area to unwind and pretty private.

The restaurant was excellent as well for both lunch and dinner. Great selection and even a kids menu.

The beach, although a bit rocky and crowded, was still beautiful and relaxing.

Also, I read other reviews that the train that runs behind the hotel was bothersome. It wasn't at all, actually the quietest train I've ever heard and the sound of it passing lasted 6 seconds.

Definitely a must stay in Taormina!

We were looking for a Beachside location to have the quintessential mediterranean holiday.
La Plage certainly fulfilled our expectations for location and amenities. The hotel is right on the best beach in Taormina. The beach is privately controlled , however day visitors can rent an umbrella and chair for about 25Euro. ...free for Hotel guests.You still have many hawkers and woman offering foot massage , but these aren't that bothersome. Don't forget your reef shoes as the beach is pebbles, but the water was clean and refreshing. Hotel staff were great and spoke English. The breakfast ( included in the rate)was on the terrace and was ok but the offering of cereals were poor with no muesli and if you are a Green Tea drinker the only option was Green Tea with mint. Fruit also was limited to basic varieties which for the price should have been better. We received an upgrade to a Superior room which gave us a bath and a little more room. Our first night was spent in a Bungalow which was cute but small . The shower needed a good clean to get the mould off the bottom of the walls but otherwise the room was clean and the bed and linen good quality. My wife had a facial at the spa and this was excellent ...but expensive of course .The train line passes right next to the resort , but this does not bother you after the first one , unfortunately the train line is built right along the beach so any beach side location has to contend with this .Overall we had a great experience but it really is a 4 star resort charging 6 star prices due to the location.

Room Tip: You get what you pay for ...your choice of Garden or Beachside Bungalow ..Beach side is best but eve...

Good hotel with something of the feel of the better places we have stayed in the Thailand/ Malayasia

The beach is pebbly but that actually adds to the charm of it once you have bought the shoes !

Excellent breakfast by Italian or any standards, stunning views of isola bella. Good Beds, Pillows and Air Con. No issues with mozzies or jellyfish during our stay.

Convenient for cable car into town.

Small but functional gym with great view.

The staff was excellent, they tried to always assist patrons with what they needed. The housekeeping staff must work all day because no matter when we left the room they were available to refresh the room. The beach and location is perfection! It's very difficult to find modern style amenities and comfort in Sicily, but La Plage offers it. Overall stay for the price and the amenities was excellently relaxing!!
