Just had 3 nights here. Views to die for and the staff were great.
Food was disappointing as it was all buffet for tour groups so we catch the shuttle to Taormina and ate there most days.
Despite the food we were happy with this place.

A great good value hotel. The staff could not have been more helpful and went out of their way to help us. There is a buffet style supper which is once again, great value for money.
We had a very nice room on the 3rd floor of the main building which was excellent. Would recommend.

Was expecting great things from this hotel, but in reality it was a bit "tired", the bedrooms were very basic, clean but basic. No shelter from the sun on the terrace (don't bother with the Superior room its idential to the classic) so you couldn't sit out there and no privacy and the terraces were open to other rooms. No seat cushions at all, if you sat at the dressing table (I use the word lightly) you couldn't actually see yourself in the mirror as it was too high, not good when you are trying to put contact lenses in! The shuttle bus was a godsend as parking in and around this area a nightmare, but it only took 15 and you needed to book as soon as the booking sheets were put on the reception. I wouldn't recommend having a hire car as the roads are extremely steep and very narrow, very limited parking and at 3 Euros an hour, it soon mounts up. Breakfast was excellent with scrambled eggs and bacon, and a buffet of cereals, fruits, ham and cheese. If I go again I would go to a hotel within walking distance of Taormina because thats where all the restaurants are. Warning, The bed was the hardest I have ever slept on.

Room Tip: Don't pay the extra for a superior room, the only difference is the terrace but you have no privacy from either as they are open. They desperately need some kind of awning or parasol to give some relief from the sun as it was to hot to sit out there.

Fantastic 4 day stay with very good service and attention to detail.
The location, services, food, shuttle bus to Taromina town and
standard was all excellent. The cleanliness, the choice of food
was fantastic. Could not find fault with anything.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms at the grand palace hotels are the best

We really loved this hotel. Our room was in the newer Grand Palace and was enormous with a fabulous large terrace which had loungers and a large seating table. It was quite a trek from the main hotel to the newer rooms. The views were spectacular and poolside was really stunning. The ony dissappointment was the expensive restaurant. We only had one adult eat and the kids had a
Astra dish each and we were charged over €100! The food was good but not really justifiable at that price.

Room Tip: We got a sea view family suite and it was well worth it.

We are glad you have enjoyed your vacation.
As for the food, we have noticed that you liked it but you found it very expensive. Please note that our food rates are in line with other 4 stars hotels and moreover we always try to get the best products, especially for fresh fish and other things that have a certain cost if you want them to be top class.
We hope you will come back in Sicily and send our
