“Pampered at the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

We stayed in the city of Taormina but went to the La Plage's beach. It is located on a very nice spot across from Isola Bella and of course being served while you're sitting on your lounger is quite enjoyable. You do get the 5 start service of the hotel seaside, However this all comes at a price, so expect to be paying quite some euros for that service. not sure if it is worth it or not, but still we had a great time.

My new husband and I spent five nights at this hotel in June. It is a very romantic place and the grounds are gorgeous. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with everything we needed. The view and the location are perfect, right on the beach with a five minute walk to the cable car that takes you up to town (Cheaper than a cab and a fun experience). Our room was a bungalow, with a private outdoor area that included lounge chairs and a hot tub. As some reviewers have pointed out - yes the rooms are small but we thought of them as cozy - especially since you have the little private outside area to relax in. We took a great cooking class the their restaurant Fusion, the chefs were awesome. It wasn't just a "fluffy", easy class either - we prepared some difficult dishes (for us anyway), learned a few things and had a great time doing it.

Room Tip: Wifi is available but only works in the main areas.

Are you looking for a spetacular place to go in a romantic trip? This is the one. The manager Andrea and the staff people are very kind, willing and ready for every need you have. The restaurant Fusion is very good, Maitre Giuseppe (Peppe) wants all the time to prepare the best option in terms of food and drink food for you. Isola Bella is a piece of heaven. My wife and me love the LaPlage Taormina.

Room Tip: Front view bungalow

I searched for the nicest hotels in Sicily, and thought I had found a really good option here.
How far from the truth was I !!!
This is definitely not a 5 stars hotel.

I have been travelling in Italy (and around the world) for many years now. I know that Italian standards are usually lower. But not to this point. Never.

When you pay 450 euros for a room, service needs to be on top of it.
The whole thing is a lie. Don't believe anything you see on the pictures. They emptied the beach to take them, making it look like you will be almost by yourself. The reality is so different: it is literally a super crowded beach full of people walking by you and trash everywhere. Music is loud.
If you think picking up a bungalow with sea view will make it better, think twice: you will be directly on the beach, with a view on the crowd and an ear on the loud music. We switched to a garden view. But then it was the train passing by right next to us.
By the way, those bungalows are tiny, don't have tubs, and feel like a closet. Not a 5 star hotel for sure.
If you look closely, everything is made with bad taste making it feel like it's minimal classy chic.
But in fact, materials are cheap, as well as the general quality of the hotel.
I would pay 150-200 euros top for this hotel.
The disappointment was huge.
Don't get tricked.

Oh! And no wifi...

Oh! And impossible to eat breakfast outside because of the bees.

Room Tip: Don't pick any.

Ok I'm gonna be straight. I rarely write here. Only when I feel robbed and I don't want it to happen to others.
Here the high rates belong to a category of very high value hotels that I am used to. But the real value of La Plage belongs to a way cheaper category.
If you like spending your vacation next to people who could belong to the cast of a reality tv show like Big Brother,
If you like house music on the beach,
If you like sea view with no view, but so close to the beach that you can hear the music all day long,
If you like garden view with no view, but so close to the tracks you can hear trains at all times,
If you like trash on the beach,
If you like ikea that pretends to be more,
If you like tiny bedrooms and bungalows,
If you like no tub,
If you like no wifi working,
If you like not being able to eat breakfast because of the hue amount of bees that are not taken care of,
If you like lying pictures of empty beaches that are in fact more than crowded,
If you like paying too much for what you get,
Then you will love this hotel.

The only thumbs up are for the employees, who are nice, warm, helpful and hopeless in this place that should really cost a third of its price.

We left earlier. Even after being offered a "nice" upgrade.

I went to La Plage in May, this resort it's stunning, we had a room with private garden in front of the beach. The service it's excellent as the food. The view is beautiful, exactly in front of Isola Bella, and it's very peaceful. Perfect for couples, very romantic!

We were initially abit worried after reading some of the negative reviews on here about the small rooms and the noise of the trains, i cannhonestly say i do not agree with either of these points. The rooms (we had a standard double 'bungalow') were stunning and we had more than enough room. There were very comfortable with good sized beds, aircon and lovely bathrooms. The trainline is behind the resort but we honestly did not notice any trains, and our room was close by.
The locatn is absolutly amazing, the beach is so beautiful the photos on here do not do it justice. Staff were extremly friendly and helpful, we felt that they could not do enough for us.
Breakfast was very good served on the beautiful terrace overlooking the sea. We ate in the restaurant on one evening, it was a little pricey but pleasant enough. We prefered to eat in Taormina itself, its well worth the walk up the hill and onto the cable car into the town just to experince the beutiful views as well as the good restaurants.
Wifi was hit and miss but it doesnt matter when you are in such a beautiful place. We would return.

Room Tip: We had a basic room which was really nice however the rooms close to the beach with their own hot tu...
