We arrived towards the end of August with our 2 kids and even though it was busy, I believe we missed the masses.
The hotel seems quite new and it is tastefully decorated with large comfortable rooms. The 2 kids had their own bedroom adjacent to ours which formed a private "suite".
The service is attentive and effecient and the staff were very friendly. Again, like other hotels in Italy during our travels, our kids seemed to be the focus of the service, which made our lives a bit easier.
Access to the beach is a little more of an effort, but at least we had the attractions of the Taormina streets and restaurants near the hotel, which made the trip to the beach a pleasant enough outing.
Breakfast was included in the room rate and it was great. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant once and I must say that it was different food to what we had enjoyed elsewhere in Taormina, but very good none the less.
Overall I can certainly say that we would come back if we were to visit Taormina again
