“Follow them, they know where they are going”, these were the instructions to the other hotel guests after alighting the transfer coach from Catania airport.  I had just mentioned to the young, and eager, Thomson’s rep that my wife and I had stayed in the Ipanema Hotel the year before, which then saved him the job of guiding everyone the...

The hotel could do with some refurbishment but the staff are a delight. Mario seems to be everywhere and do everything, he is excellent. The reception staff are helpful and try to help with any information you need. Staff in the restaurant are all good, as are the cleaners. We stayed four days at this hotel and were very sorry...

My wife and I have just arrived home from a weeks stay at this hotel in Taormina and cannot praise the hotel and staff enough. We had a fantastic stay and this was in no small part down to the treatment from all the staff where nothing was too much trouble. The food was superb all week with a varied... More

Other reviews mention this is more of an old style hotel. That is putting it mildly. In 2016 it is surprising to find yourself in a hotel room with only two English channels - both of which are news channels. Not a terrible thing if you can access reliable Wifi in the room - but you can't. Reviews also highlight... More

The Ipanema Hotel has great staff and looks like you are still in the 70s. Unfortunately the rooms also have not changed much since the 70s and are in need of a serious renovation. Staff: Very friendly staff - among the best I have ever experienced. Rooms: Very old rooms with basic commodities. All rooms have a great view of... More

Everything good about this hotel. Set in the 1970's but with all the great features including wonderful staff. great views from the balconies and a stunning terrace and pool on the roof. The Gala dinner one night a week was fantastic although the normal evening meal whilst excellent was a touch repetitive. still wouldn't change anything and would certainly return.

If you want a big modern hotel this is not for you, but has a great vintage feel to it so that was quite a nice change for us.
