I recently stayed at the Garden Maruca B&B for one night in May 2013 with my two cousins and their child. This is not a 5 star resort, but if you are after something that is clean, comfortable for a couple of nights, within walking distance to Taormina's Corso, and you don't mind walking up the hill on the road, then this place is good enough.
We only stayed one night and we were given two rooms with a separate bathroom, which was small, but clean. We had use of the tiny kitchenette, which was handy as we had a child with us, so good to heat up milk etc.
The rooms were clean and although not new, were sufficient for our needs, my only gripe is they consider putting in a thick curtain to block out the lights from the courtyard which are on all night long. Other than that, I really cannot complain too much, ive stayed in worst 5 star hotels than this.
Breakfast was included in our rate, which we ate in the restaurant above the b&b, unfortunately we were not given...

The Garden Maruca B&B is a budget accomodation which is conveniently located just five minutes walk (trough the walk is on the road) OUTSIDE the city center.
That said it's worth what you pay. The rooms are old and very humid at night, the bathroom has no window or fan and the shower plate is rusty while the taps are covered with limestone. The bed linen are very old and used to the point where a very small pressure can cause a tear. BTW, the blanket are made with a nylon textiles something I haven't been seing since decades. The breakfast (unless you ask for fruit which is somewhat decent) is very poor and with low cost brand ( no Mulino Bianco or Nutella, just to make an example). Last but not least the ceiling of the room is the floor of the restaurant upstairs meaning up to 1.00 am forget sleeping as moving chairs at a table causes "thunders" in the room. In the end, taormina is quite a nice place, do yourself a favour and spend some bucks more.

The Garden Maruca B&B is a budget accommodation as you said and it doesn’t have many comfort, that’s why it is just a one–star B&B !! If it were in better condition it would have been two/three or more stars B&B !! Btw we thank you for your criticism. Months ago we provided for making better our B&B in all... More
