The best things about this hotel is the staff and the views. The entire hotel needs a revamp, fittings are rusted and broken, the frame on the shower in my room has come away from the glass. The poolside bar is supposed to be open from 12 til 6, on the one day that I stayed at the pool it... More

Loved this hotel. The location is 5 minutes away from taormina center with the cable car and hotel has a stunning view from sea view rooms. The breakfast was very good however they should make a few changes as it gets boring and limited after two days as everything remains the same. The staff at front desk are very helpful... More

I was charged for coffee at Breakfast before I left. I was on Bed and Breakfast and never been to a hotel where they charge for coffee at Breakfast. The breakfast bacon was just strips of fat and the scramble egg never seen like it . Apart from that the sweets and croissants were great.

Me, my wife and 2 children stayed for 3 fabulous nights in late July. We stayed in the family room and what a view it was. Breathtaking! As were the views from everywhere in the hotel. The hotel is great value for money in what is an expensive resort. The staff are all very helpful and have a good command... More

We enjoyed 5 nights at the hotel as part of a 10 night holiday in Italy. We booked the hotel because of the views and price compared to others in the area. We were not disappointed with the views, the view from our room was amazing. Management and staff were all friendly and helpful, especially both ladies on reception. Room... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights for the start of our tour of Sicily. First things first, the views are fantastic. We paid for a sea view and it was so worth it. Amazing view every morning. Very helpful staff on reception who spoke very good English. (Our Italian isn't great) room was basic but the sea... More

Hesitant between 3 and 4 star rating. The location is ideal, with close walk to the sea. The pool on the 3rd floor is great. If you have a room without a view, which is most of 1st floor and some of 2nd floor, then it is a disapointment. Why 3 stars, the parking (free) is limited to 8 cars,... More

I agree about the views, but only if you are lucky enough to get a room with a sea view, otherwise you may be staring at someone else's balcony at very close range, particularly if you are in a single room. Definitely past its best (when ever that may have been). Shutter wouldn't work so just had very thin curtain,... More

Yes, this hotel has great views and clean rooms but the food ranges from poor to dreadful. Senior staff VERY unhelpful. Breakfast included terrible machine made coffee, stale bread and low quality cold meats. The dinner (fixed menu with choice of mains and starters) was not edible. We struggled with our first course, my soup was highly salty and I... More
