On the plus side staff were brilliant so friendly and helpful and always had a smile. Mario on the bar is a character very funny and makes the best coffee. Vincenzo and Santo in the dining room really look after you and the two ladies on reception always polite and really helpful. The only member of staff not good was... More

We paid a fortune to stay at this hotel which is firmly a 3 star and nothing more and left with a feeling of disappointment. The plus side= The room was spacious and clean (if a bit drab) with a nice balcony and view over the bay. The evening meals were tasty if a bit repetitive. The location is good,... More

What a wonderful gem of a hotel - perfect location, comfortable rooms, superb restaurant dining room and the most gorgeous traditional Sicilian food cooked by fantastic chefs. Views are fabulous and the pool and sun terrace on the roof are excellent for relaxing and soaking up the sun. The receptionists offer a wealth of information and advice, and the waiters... More

We stayed on the 4th floor of this 5 floor hotel. We had a twin bedded room with balcony and a lovely view over the surrounding area and the sea. We had the half board option, food was excellent and the service impeccable (many thanks to our waiter,Vincuenzo). The two excellent Receptionists Cristine and Marianna will advise you on anything...

The Ipenema was perfectly suited to our requirements. A short walk to the local beach, good selection of local bars/restaurants, easy access to Taormina town. Hotel was extremely clean, room and bathroom very nice and beds really comfortable, beautiful view from balcony, great rooftop pool/sunbathing area and good continental breakfast. Would certainly stay there again.

Room rather basic although we did get a balcony. Beds OK, not that comfortable. Food of a high standard but this was ruined by dodgy furniture and wobbly chairs. Sad to relate the staff were offish, i.e. prone to sarcasm, not over helpful and we had the feeling that we were being ripped off financially. The week's holiday cost us... More

On a recent 2 week holiday I stayed at the Ipanema Hotel. I found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Restaurant food was fantastic and staff were always willing to help you with your food choice. Bed was really comfortable. I slept like a log.
