Arrived in the Bay Palace after a wonderful stay in Savoca. The hotel is not 4 star maybe a 3 star.A bit to far away from Taormina and a bit of a walk to the cable car along a very busy road.The rooms were cleaned every day but could do with a little refurbishment. Breakfast was ok with a fantastic...

This is not a four-star and you will be disapointed if you have that expectation! We were met by a sour man in the reception. Our room was facing another balcony towards a wall. The whole hotel smell of insect spray. Most of the furniture were falling apart. The toilet were broken and there were mold in the shower. The...

I enjoyed our staying here. The room was big and it was very clean with spectacular view of the Bay from our balcony and the terraces The Mediterranean style of rooms is laconic and pure like the fisherman or farmer house. Breakfast buffet was average to good. Typical variety of pastries, cereal, ham, cheese and coffee but.. croissants were overcooked...

The rooms are big and some offer a stunning view on the bay. Though the hotel is not in the 'upper' part of Taormina the cable lifts are just a stroll away and take you to the town in aprox. seven minutes. The breakfast is served with a magnifique view on the bay and offers various options such as croissants...

Got this for the private pool and beach location, but the hotel was not what we expected. Although the room was quite good, big enough, with a nice balcony (we got a sea view room) and bathroom, it was not that close to Taormina centre and the cable is 3 euros one way, so getting up and down even twice...

Nice hotel, just outside town, with great view of the bay. Parking very limited....parking on drive up to hotel for a few cars but we parked on the street below. Difficult climbing for those with problems doing so. Room was very nice, comfortably large bath. Clean. Friendly staff. Short walk into Taormina and the cable lift to the Old Town...

The owner is always around.....the first night he asked us to turn off the balcony light becuase energy is expensive in italy (it was 10pm and we have arrived to the room 20 minutes ago!!).

We stayed at this hotel as part of a package to Sicily. We chose it becasue it seemed easy to get to Taormina and we wanted to be able to get about independently as well as on organised tours. The hotel itself is a basic 3 star - not the 4 star it is advertised as. The rooms are basic...
