i've stayed at grand atlantis bay which is also beautiful. However, this one ticked more boxes as its closer to the theatre and an array of fab restaurants. This hotel is very quiet as there are approx 20+ rooms only..we never ate there other then in the morning as multi-choices are on our door steps.... The staff are on the ball and very helpful... One of the best 5* hotels we've stayed in Toaromina.
Tips just ask for ice and a cup by the pool after picking up bottles of water from the local cornershop.... i cant justify £4 for a bottle of water regardless of hotel.
Plan your trip when a theatre play is active.... its very romantic and the experience isn't the same anywhere else, Especially with mount etna spitting in the back ground.
Book a table at Atlantis bay from 8pm... i had lobster risotto its ticked all the boxes
Scope out the place on the first night...fab food bars Jazz bars around..
This is one of many places locals eat GRANDUCA ristorante Pizzeria ...The fillet of steak for my mains was incredible. I went to the kitchen and gave the chef a tip for a few pints.... i'm also a chef.
Dress to impress a defo...
