It is actually a bit sad. This hotel has the potential to be really great: great location, interesting construction, private bay, nice rooms - but too many "mistakes" makes it average. Take the restaurent: served the wrong dish - happens but here a result of head waiters arrogance - replaces with correct dish only ice cold - no offer of... More

The hotel has a private bay, which allows a calm and relaxing bathing without the crowd which gathers on the public beach. Idyllic scenery and only a few minutes away from the funicular which takes you up to the town. The breakfast buffet was amazing as well. The downside: there was a wedding reception every other day at the hotel... More

No possible to sleep at night, because of too loud music, which you will hear every night from the disco opposit this hotel! This disco works every night until 4 pm. So, if you like drugs and modern music all the night, this is your best choice, If you want to have good rest, you have to choose another hotel.

We travelled with friends to Sicily and were very pleased with our rooms and location of the hotel, all rooms face the coast with a large veranda and incredible views.The hotel is built into a rock and a tunnel is set behind it where you hear the rubbling of trains which we did not find disturbing.

The hotel is very beautiful. It has an underwater and greek theme. We had a standard room (rm 510) and it was incredibly small in the room and had a large patio. The room was so small that you couldn't open the bathroom door all the way and there was no sitting area besides the bed. It was too stressful... More

The hotel is located next to a private beach and bay. It has a balcony with sea view. The decoration is bit tiring, but probably it's in Sicily. Most of staffs are friendly and helpful, except one or two. It's expensive compared to lots of other hotels, but you will be happy if you don't expect a similar deco like... More

The room we had was unusually large with a large veranda. From the veranda we had northern Sicily and southern Italy to view every day. There are restaurants nearby. Taormina is easily accessible via nearby buses. Breakfast was good, especially the outdoor seating.
