Just do not waste your money staying at this hostel disguised behind hotel prices. The rooms in the brochure and online are not the rooms you stay in. The balcony is so small you have to sit sideways. The view is the only thing going for this establishment. They look at you condescendingly if you go for a 2nd cup of coffee at breakfast! They charge you €35 for a spin to the beach! Another Faulty Towers. Could not recommend.

The hotel's location is amazing! Great views from our balcony, the restaurant and pool. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast had a great range of choices and freshly made coffee. My only complaint is the walls in our room were very thin, we could literally hear the next room turning light switches.

The location was great and with easy access to all attractions. We had a simple, large room which was clean and comfortable. Although the swimming pool was small, it was heated and located outside with lovely views. There were also great views from the breakfast room. Breakfast was continental style with fruits and yogurts. They also had delicious croissants and cakes - hard to resist. We really appreciated the friendliness of the staff especially Tomas on reception and the barman by the pool who went out of his way to get me a hot chocolate. Grazie mille.

Room Tip: Best to get a bus from the airport to Taormina and it’s an easy 15 minute uphill walk to the hotel.

This hotel is lovely. The staff are great from the reception staff, cleaning, maintenance, restaurant staff. Thé breakfast was yummy. There were a lot of different selections. And the view for Brekky is breathtaking. The pool is great also and it is heated. It has a bit of a sea view also. Thé location of thé hôtel is perfect super close to Porto Messina town (for shopping and restaurants) and a short walk to the funicular to get down to the beaches. Our room was a family room it was spacious with two balconies. The hotel’s upgrade give it a really modern luxurious feel. Loved our stay here. And would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Book the Brekky for the gorgeous view. Try to get a room a little higher up as we heard the noise...

This hotel was a gem, very clean and modern…. Location was perfect, 5 min walk to the centre of Taormina. The views are spectacular. Receptionist were very welcoming and friendly , especially Francesco. We were upgraded to a deluxe room with an incredible view of the sea. The breakfast was delightful with an array of selections of fresh fruits and pastries along with eggs, cheeses and cold cuts …. They even had a gluten free station. Parking was a breeze…. For 15 euros a day they valet your car. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is a hidden gem. Location is fantastic only a few minutes walk to the main streets which are filled with great restaurants and shops ,Roman amphitheater, cable car to the beaches and bus station. The hotel has been recently renovated and is modern and simply furnished. Our room, a deluxe double, was small but extremely clean and had a wonderful sea view and balcony. This is a city hotel so there was some street noise early morning but all part of the Taormina experience.The hotel staff were very polite and nothing was too much trouble. We have travelled extensively, stayed in five star hotels however the Splendid ranks very highly on our list and we would gladly return.

Loved this hotel, it has everything you need in the best location. Ignore the hotel photos on Trip Advisor and the old reviews as it has been completely renovated since then. It is very clean and modern now, look at the more recent traveller photos and the photos on their website for a better idea. The staff are very attentive, particularly around the pool and at breakfast. The pool area is small but sun loungers, tables and parasols are all there. The pool is in shade by around 2.30/3pm due to the hotel being in the cliff side but plenty of time to make the most of it. Pool towels are also readily available and there is a bar for drinks and lunch. The views from the balcony are lovely, make sure to pay extra for the sea view, it’s worth it. Breakfast was really good too, good coffee and a great continental buffet with everything you could want. The walk into the town is less than a few minutes, from the town you can also get the cable car down to the beach if you wish. The town is just beautiful with loads of eateries and things to do. Highly recommend staying here when visiting Taormina!!

Don’t understand the bad reviews. This hotel is so fabulous. The staff make it special. For the price we are so pleased. The pool is lovely and you can drink around the pool late into the night. The staff are wonderful, especially Andrea, what a wonderful bright enthusiastic young person so eager to please. We could not find an espresso martini cocktail in Taormina and his could rival a bar in Manchester so delicious. On our last evening we left it too late to go out to eat but we were welcomed into the roof terrace restaurant by the wonderful staff, we had the place to ourselves and enjoyed some amazing pasta and wine. Only criticism hotel can be a little noisy and bright in the morning waking you up early. Would 100% stay again

We absolutely loved this small hotel which is in an excellent location, just a few minutes walk from the centre of Taormina.  It is modern and bright and has obviously been refurbished recently as many pictures on TripAdvisor are out of date. My husband emailed them before our arrival and told them it was a trip for my birthday.  I was over the moon when we arrived to find they had upgraded our room to one with a fab sea view and had even left a birthday card and bottle of fizz in our room. Vicenza on reception was so helpful in suggesting places to visit.  In fact, all the staff were very polite, helpful and friendly. Our room was beautiful.   Small balcony with table, two chairs and a stunning view, and a single bed for our son.  Bath robes, slippers and a complimentary selection of toiletries were included.  We maybe could have used a few more hangers in the wardrobe.  The bathroom was stunning with WC, bidet, bowl style WHB and a shower cubicle big enough for all three of us to get in should we so desire (which I didn't)!  And it's like the fairies come in every day while we are out to clean, tidy and make the beds! The free breakfast was superb with an excellent selection of cereals,  cold meats/cheeses/salad, bacon and scrambled egg, fruit, yogurt and a fabulous choice of cakes and pastries.  We filled up for the day and lasted until dinner time.  Speaking of which, one evening we booked a table in the hotel's roof top restaurant with a fantastic view overlooking the sea and Taormina.  The food was delicious but there were only three tables occupied,  probably because it is a bit more expensive than the many restaurants in town. The pool isn't large but is adequate for the number of rooms in the hotel.  We enjoyed a few hours around the pool on several occasions and it wasn't at all crowded.  A few more sunbeds and umbrellas would have been good, but they make the most of the limited space they have.  They have a bar with waiter service (they also do lunchtine snacks) which is also open during the evening.  The indoor bar is only open in the cooler months.  When there wasn't a sunbed available around the pool, I sat at the table and chairs which are set out for people using the bar in the evening.  I didn't mind as it was the only available area in shade.  Complimentary towels are provided to use around the pool.  The pool itself is shallow one end and deep the other. If you don't have a room with a sea view, you can still enjoy the stunning views of the surrounding area from the restaurant and the pool. If you hire a car for the day, there is no parking at the hotel but the Lumbi car park is only a 5-10 minute walk away.  It cost us €16 for 13 hours overnight and is much safer than trying to find street parking.  We rented from Budget just a five minute walk away, but you probably need to book in advance. Finally,  the hotel welcome pets.  It was lovely to see several small dogs accompanying their owners to breakfast or around the pool. Not sure how they'd feel about an over friendly and boisterous Labrador though! I really don't have any negatives for this hotel and would definitely book again if coming back to Taormina.
