We stayed at the Baia Taormina for two nights. We chose this hotel because of its location. It was a two-minute drive to the beach and a fifteen-minute drive to Taormina. Although we rented a car, we took advantage of the shuttle service to these two places. I strongly recommend you book your 'time slot' at the check-in as the... More

Stayed here for a week. It is located in the countryside, a 15 minute bus shuttle to Taormina and 5 minute shuttle to the beach. Walking is not really a safe option, as the roads are narrow and twisting. Pros: The staff are pleasant. The views of the sea are uninterrupted and beautiful and the local beach is very nice....

Nothing of a Grand Palace, except the name. The hotel is located over the coast, with good views, but not from all the rooms. In my case the view was half blocked by the elevator and a great part of my balcony had some privacy protection, so that the people coming from the elevator weren't able to see me in... More

Honestly I have nothing to write against this place. Beautiful hotel, fantastic view, very nice bus service, very helpful staff. AND omlets for breakfast the best I have been eating in my life. Omlets made by the Chef Mario the best cook in the world. I will miss him very much. Thank You.

The hotel is situated 10min driving from Taormina. The hotel provides an hourly shuttle towards Taormina and the beach. Walking to the beach is almost impossible because of the road and the traintracks between the hotel and the beach. The hotel looks nice from a distance but when you look more into detail you will find some places outdated. Be... More

We just returned from a 5 day stay at Baia Taormina and we shall surely visit again. The hotel is not in Taormina centre and there are no shops, restaurants close by but this should not discourage since it is beautifully located on a hill with great views (probably all rooms). There is a courtesy free shuttle service to Taormina... More

This was our second stay at this hotel. The staff as usual was very accommodating. They even switched rooms for us because we wanted to stay in upper floor rooms. The views are much better from 5th floor upwards. Hotel very clean and quiet. A car is a must as its a 10 minute drive from Taormina. Make sure you... More
