We loved the Ashbee! There is nothing more breathtaking than their infinity pool overlooking the Taormina cliffs and beach. A sublime and decadent experience. The service was impeccable and the room comfortable and beautiful (one small complaint is that the luxurious shower allowed water to get everywhere...but they always cleaned it up). The location right near the entrance to the old town can't be beat. You're also steps away from the funicular down to the beach. This was a splurge for us and we are so happy we treated ourselves. Everything in Taormina is on the pricey side anyway, so why not treat yourself to this gem of a boutique hotel.
