Great stay - lovely sea view, yummy and varied breakfast, calm pool area with great views. We got upgraded to a triple which was a little larger, large beds and clean rooms. Valet parking available for 10 euro a day.

Location was good but best to get on the nearby cable car into the town for dinner

Overall, We enjoyed.

Main problem was the broken air conditioning. When the room is 30degC there's a problem. You can't leave the door open because of the traffic, so not a good sleep. The staff are very friendly and gave us a bottle of sparkling to apologise but that doesn't help at 2am when you are boiling. Am not sure if this was isolated but the rest of the hotel was pretty hot so I doubt it. This aside location is great overlooking the water, staff are really helpful and friendly, good breakfeast and pool. But again no air con when the room is 30deg kills the happiness.

Dear E_and_R_57,

Thank you very much for you review on tripadvisor.
We also would like to thank you for your positive comments regarding our service and our staff.

The air conditioning system is completelly fixed now, unfortunately, during your stay we were not able to immediately solve the issue, therefore we are really sorry to have caused discomfort during that night.
We really hope to have you as our previleged guest again in the future, and to offer you the best service than a 4 star hotel must guarantee.

Kind Regards

Clay Pavone
Hotel Manager

Fantastic view! But the staff really made it a great experience. Very good complimentary breakfast on the terrace (great view) and a nice pool with a bar on the roof (again, great view) Conveniently located near the beach with an option for a private beach a short cab ride away. Also near restaurants and the gondola to the center of town at the top of Taormina (which you must see). I felt the staff truly wanted me and my family to enjoy ourselves (thanks Pietro!). Their recommendations were perfect and they even got us into an amazing local restaurant on the beach that was booked. I personally like to go where the locals are and I felt I was sent to the best spots. I'd recommend not driving a car. There are motorbikes everywhere but these traversing cliff roads are not for the novice.

This hotel was excellent! The rooms were clean and comfortable with great views of the bay. It was a little cumbersome to get to the beach, but that's life in Taormina. The staff was very accommodating; especially the concierge, Pietro. He went out of his way to help us with everything from travel plans within Sicily to a remedy for digestive problems. The breakfasts were delicious The location was close to the cable car. There were little shops and eateries nearby for snacks and necessities. The only problem was the sound of the ambulances that came by several times a day, as we were close to the street.

One of the best services ever, amazing view over Isolabella, perfect location if you like to be close to the beach.
Rooms are a little noisy for my taste, but it's down to your neighbors after all.
The breakfast terrace an absolute gem. Great value for money. Would definitely come back.

- Very friendly and helpful staff
- Good location, just in front of Isolabella beach and 5 min walking away from the cable car
- Good breakfast
- Swimming pool should remain open after 6.30pm ( at least one hour more)

This was a perfect hotel to stay on our honeymoon. Staff is outstanding! They really did everything for us. They helped me to organize a little surprise for my husbands birthday and offered a bottle of prosicco on an occasion and on our arrival to welcome us for our honeymoon. Location is perfect -next to beach and close to cable car station. Easy to access everything in Taormina. View is so lovely from the balcony. Breakfast was great. I would definitely stay in this hotel again. Big thanks for all the staff in reception and restaurant!
