Accommodation That Best Suit us …. Taormina

Appreciate any help with the accommodation choices.

Over my past few holidays I have concluded that I have spent way too much staying in hotels so keen to not make the same mistake this year. Not interested in staying in a hugely expensive hotel as sometime don’t fell the benefit from the huge costs involved.

I would really like to find a nice property to stay in Taormina. I like staying close to all the restaurants and shops as we would eat out every night. On our holidays we mainly relax by a pool or were walking and exploring the town around us.

Ideal the accommodation would be close to Taormina, clean and not tired dated property style, pool area, air condition and Wi Fi. Don’t mind about breakfast, take it or leave it…..

Luxury residence Taormina look nice but seems to have NO outdoor pool ? Bummer

Any advice?

Thank You

Try looking at Long Travel. They specialise in the south of Italy & have some nice Taormina places. Consider Castelmola di Taormina for really good value for money in a stunning spot.

Welcome to Sicily buzzlightyear1111!

You haven’t indicated your budget and “hugely expensive” is subjective!

Why would you book through a third party reservation system when you could realise savings by booking directly with the hotel?

And if you’d like to walk to the restaurants and be near Taormina, stay in Taormina, not Castelmola. Castelmola accommodations also lack pools, but if you find Castelmola attractive you might consider The lemon Tree Apartments.

Because of the hill town landscape, not too many hotels in Taormina have pools, and you would probably consider many out of your budget range - Villa Carlotta, The Ashbee Park Hotel, Hotel Imperiale, Metropole Taormina Maison D’Hôtes, Villa Belvedere, Grand Hotel Timeo, Hotel Sirius, Grand Hotel San Pietro, Grande Albergo Monte Tauro, Ariston, Excelsior Palace Hotel, Villa Riis, Hotel Diodoro, Grand Hotel Miramare, Hotel Méditerranée, Andromaco Palace Hotel, Villa Kristina, and Villa Angela and Hotel Soleado above town or Villa Sant'Andrea, Panoramic Hotel, and Villa Sirina below town.

Well, I continue to recommend - and will do so here - the Hotel Taodomus which is a lovely boutique hotel in a great location - and with lots of nice touches.

2 years ago we were staying out Taormina, and took the opportunity to look at quite a few of the hotels there.

We chose this one to stay in for a night, and now stay here every June. Its location is excellent (on the main street through Taormina, near one of the old gates so easy to get to, lots of restaurants nearby); it has very nice individually styled rooms; the wifi is good, there's also a mac and printer; the design is very chic indeed; free breakfast (cooked to order) on the roof terrace with marvellous views of Etna; and friendly, professional, knowledgeable staff.

It's not a full service hotel like the big ones and 5 stars on the next level down - so you can't order room service in the evening. But there are some great restaurants in the centre (where it is), so check out the website. It's also very good value (130 or so a night, maybe cheaper). We like it because it has personalility and good service.

Anyway, just our view.

Do you want a hotel? If you would consider an apartment, villa costanza bellavista ticks all your boxes :)
