Would definately recommend this small, friendly hotel. The room and bathroom were clean with air conditioning, fridge and safe. Good variety of continental breakfast food with fresh fruit and juice served outside by the pool. The staff are very helpful especially Barbara, who gave us lots of tips for places to visit, nothing was too much troublefor her. The pool is well maintained and was never busy - plenty of sun loungers for all! The hotel is in an excellent location just across a quiet road from the beach (also very quiet) and a five minute walk from the local bus stop where you can catch the bus to Taormina for 1.10 euro. We had a lovely relaxing holliday at this great little hotel.

This hotel is very recommendable: clean, comfortable, friendly staff en next to the beach. The room and bathroom were clean and well equipped; the air conditioning kept the room at a pleasant temperature. The breakfast buffet was extensive and plentiful. The access to the parking garage is rather tight for a larger car.

My family and I stayed at this hotel during our summer break. It was in an excellent location across the street from the beach. The hotel room was amazing with 2 bathrooms and a balcony. My kids also enjoyed the pool. A light breakfast is included. If you want to take a trip to Taormina, the bus stop is conveniently located down the street. The beach is long and was not crowded when we were there. The staff at the hotel were very nice and helpful.
