We changed our destination to Sicily and this hotel at the last minute, due to quarantine restrictions with the Algarve. It is a lovely old hotel with fantastic views. A few minutes walk into the old town and shops and restaurants. Lovely Gardens next door, built by the lady that built the hotel and Isle Isabel nature reserve, what a grand place it must have been then!!!! Staff were friendly, breakfast was good, just ask for scrambled eggs or bacon if you want them! The chocolate, lemon and almond cakes were delicious. Coffee was served in a coffee pot with a jug of hot frothy milk, as it should be, not from a machine, a definite plus from us!!!! We ate one evening meal there and it did not dissapoint, it was lovely. It may be a little tired in places, but the unique period furniture and carpets and pictures were a welcome change from the somewhat sterile interiors of the 'chain' hotels, it was an unexpected enjoyable week!!!…
We booked this hotel at the last minute 5 days before our flights with very little research beforehand. So glad we picked the Diodoro. Great location 5 mins walk from the historic town full of bars and good restaurants and right next door to botanical gardens. Beautiful interiors, gardens and amazing vista from the deck of a huge swimming pool. The beds were comfortable and we had a beautiful balcony overlooking the sea and fir trees. Great evening meals infact the best meals of the holiday, especially the risottos. Fabulous service from Daniele in the bar and restaurant. The only let down was the breakfast. Too many processed packeted meats and cheeses, they could serve fresh products. Overall would stay again if we visited Taomina, shame about it only being 20% full due to corona virus.…
I stayed here for a couple of nights on a recent trip to Taormina. These are strange times for travelling, and so the hotel seems quiet and somewhat devoid of life. Check-in wasn’t quite that smooth, they had to hold on to my passport for some time and I had to come back to collect it later. Why that is the case, I’m never told. Everywhere else just takes a photocopy or scan of the ID page. Except at check-in, I never ever saw anyone behind the counter at reception whenever I walked passed. Location wise, I thought the hotel was great. It is very close to the bus station, and next to a nice park. Not right in the middle of the town, but certainly close enough to walk there and back without much difficulties. There are a few good restaurants nearby too. But really, the only thing you need to know about the hotel is the spectacular views. I paid a little extra for a room with sea views, but if you don’t, then you miss the whole point of staying here. See my pictures below for the views at different times of day.…
The hotel is a beautiful building with amazing views over the Bay of Naxos, and a ten minute walk from the centre of Taormina. The swimming pool as amazing views! That said it is a bit neglected. It is looking a bit tired (some would say tatty in places), and that goes for the staff. No real engagement; slightly functionary; certainly not sense of welcome! Worst of all was the food. We only had breakfast, but (particularly given the grand nature of the hotel) it was very disappointing. Stale croissant/rolls; 'tin' fruit, all very basic and uninteresting. This place needs some strong management to revive it to its former glory!
We stayed at Hotel Diodora for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon. It's in a great location, close enough to the centre to walk to but far enough for some peace and quiet. The hotel on general felt quite empty, faded and past its best. It reminded me of The Shining! There are huge empty events rooms and lounges, and only a small number of people at breakfast. We stayed in a superior room with balcony which was smaller than expected but still comfortable. Breakfast was ok but you have to request eggs. The breakfast staff were very friendly and attentive. We had a good time by the pool because it was so quiet with a lovely view over the ocean.
