Great location. Pebble beach was different in good way. Room was up to par but first floor views are obstructed. Hotel staff generally very good and helpful. Only issue was front desk staff that switched rooms on us last minute without telling us. This inevitably caused an internal mixup that had them lose our valeted car for nearly an hour when we went to pcik it up for dinner. And this meant a lost evening planned in Taormina as parking was full by time of our arrival.
