We were a bit put off by some of the reviews of this hotel. It is very typically Italian, in a seaside town on the outskirts of Taormina (about two miles away) We have a lovely room with a sea view, a sitting room, a balcony overlooking the pool and a big bathroom with a hydro bath, shower, bidet, toilet and sink. There is wifi in every room, accessed by a code on the tv screen. Everything is spotless. The included breakfast offered fresh fruit, cold meat, cheeses,cakes, yoghurt, cereal, eggs and some hot dishes. On the seafront there are trattorias selling home cooked local dishes. A meal for two with a litre of wine cost around 40 euros considerably less than in Taormina.The hotel is in a little side street but not isolated or frightening at night - or perhaps only if you live in some sheltered English backwater! We walked to Taormina and back in about 60 minutes each way - on the road there and down cliff steps on the way back. The road was a bit busy and uphill but gave glorious views and the path was a bit rough at the lower end. The open top tour bus, 20 euros for all day stops once an hour just along the Taormina Road outside the railway station. We are no "spring chicken", have travelled lots in Europe and beyond and think that this hotel, booked as a package through Easyjet, is just great value for money.
