Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for 3 nights about a week ago (start of June) and I honestly don't think I can fault it. It was that good that I decided to join Trip Advisor to make sure that I could spread the word about this place.
It truly was flawless. It is run by Mikele who is incredibly helpful, friendly and makes some pretty seriously good cakes for breakfast. The rooms are each different, but we stayed in the Bottichelli room. Yes, it is draped in red and gold but if you don't mind a few bright colors then this is no problem. Plus the beds are so comfortable that it won't matter... We also had a balcony overlooking the ocean which, as you can imagine, was great!
What Mikele has done with the place is remarkable; Hammocks, outdoor beds on the roof overlooking the ocean, outdoor hottub - it really is THAT good... Plus, it only has 5 rooms so it's like a family and never busy/crowded.
I really can't recommend Isoco enough. I've travelled around the world, stayed in some great and some terrible hotels/hostels and some expensive and some cheap places but I don't think any have been as memorable as Isoco. If you go to Taormina - please please stay there...
