This is a magnificent hotel way on the top of Taormina. We stayed there 20 years ago, when it was a smaller hotel, without a restaurant or a pool. Daniele was extremely kind and warm. He offered us an upgrade for €30 and the room was lovely. The views were amazing. We were treated like royalty by the staff and the proprietor. We arrived early and they provided us with coffee and sweets as we waited for our room. The breakfast was delicious. We were given gifts… their perfume and a tote bag when we left. The memories of this hotel will always lift my spirits. It has undeniable class.

This stunning hotel is amazing. The views, the unique and unforgettable rooms, and the kind and attentive staff made our stay perfect. They even worked hard to track down our lost luggage. This is a trip we will never forget.

So sorry to have only one night at this stunning hotel. The room was amazing (thank you for the upgrade!) with the biggest shower ever and stunning views from the little balcony. The pool was very welcome after a busy day though more like a huge hot tub than a pool! Lovely to wallow and soak in such warm water! Our evening meal was exceptional, the breakfast equally superb and the free shuttle back up from Taormina very welcome. Charming, friendly and with stunning views. We couldn’t have asked for more for our last 24 hours in Sicily.
