Having stayed previously at the hotel, in the first year of opening, I recently returned to Taormina and decided to revisit the El Jabel for old-times sake..... The building is beautiful and the situation is quintessentially what Taormina is all about, perched precariously within, and yet above the town, it has commanding views from the upper floors and roof terrace,...

This is one of those hotels that you could spend all day 'gushing' about purely because it really IS perfect. So I won't bore you with that one but would like to confirm the following:- Is the building as beautiful as the pictures portray.....YES! Are the staff amazing.....Yes, beyond anything I've ever experienced! Do the rooms have everything you need.....yes... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of August, having discovered the hotel during a previous visit to Taormina. Our experience was excellent from start to finish, and for us the El Jebel epitomises a 5-star experience - helped by being small (only 10 rooms) but very well designed. Our 'classic' room on the first floor was beautifully... More

When I planned this trip with my sister, our travel agent insisted that we stay at the San Domenico. We declined the San Domenico based on price, location and were concerned that the interiors would be tired and dated. So glad we did! El Jebel was perfectly situated (note that the entrance is at the top of 30 or so... More

I don't usually write reviews but having had the most wonderful stay in the beautiful el jebel I felt I couldn't leave without saying how amazing the staff are (from the cleaner who meticulously tidied our room each day) to the waiting staff who could not do enough to ensure we had a fabulous stay!

Second row from main street you feel like in a castle. We got an upgrade as the hotel is not fully booked. Very large suite with a very nice bath room. View to the sea and Etna. Is it worth the price, not so sure but this is Taormina - central location - expect you have to pay the price.... More

Me and my husband rented an appartment at Taormina as a part of our honeymoon. The place wasn't what we expected so we bumped up for this sweet little boutique hotel, just in the middle of the historic center of Taormina, surrounded by charming shops and restaurants. The wifi wasn't working in our room so they changed us immediatly for... More

Great hotel, best location. Outstanding service. Nice breakfast, mostly sweeties. The rooms are excellent. The panoramic view from the roof top is amazing. FYI, Family's with baby's please note that in order to get to the hotel, U must claim 30 steps or more to enterence. So with a baby carrier it becomes defficult. The food in taormina is ok,... More

We'd read fabulous reviews for Hotel El Jebel on TripAdvisor and other travel sites. Unfortunately, while some parts of the stay were very strong, others were hugely lacking for the price tag and 5 star rating the hotel has. We were told the hotel had just opened for the season the day we arrived to check in for our honeymoon,... More

I've stayed at Hotel El Jebel twice, including when I got married during my destination wedding in Taormina. If you are staying in Taormina, this is my favorite hotel in Taormina (that's not on the Mazzaro bay). Here you will find top notch, five star service, amazingly large rooms (and we all know how Europe has small hotel roms!), tastefully... More
