“great view, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

friendly and helpful staff, and did I mention the view? The parking situation in Taormina is impossible; although the hotel only has 3 parking spaces, the hotel staff will help you find parking! Homey room decor, convenient location to the main stroll in Taormina. Really enjoyed our stay there.

Everyone that looked after us at the hotel was extremely kind and helpful, from start to finish. As it was off season we were upgraded to a sea-view room which had the most amazing view of Mt. Etna. A great way to start every day! The hotel is very homely, comfortable and clean. Taormina is beautiful and a really lovely place to walk around, especially at Christmas. And easy too, as the hotel is in the centre, but not noisy.

Room Tip: the sea view/ Etna view rooms are definitely worth it!

Excellent hotel, amazing views, very well located, helpful and well informed staff always on hand to help enjoy your stay in this fantastic little town. Our room was nothing too flashy but clean and practical and just what we were after. Other rooms were more fancy. Breakfast in the balcony restaurant with the smoothest coffee you'll ever taste looking out over Mount Etna, sets up your day a treat. Take your tennis stuff as the courts next door are free. Would definitely like to visit again.

Room Tip: If you are willing to spend a bit more, go for the ones with views over Etna.

Centrally located. Walking distance to everything. Amazing view of Etna and southern sicily from our hotel room! Awesome breakfast set up and options. Felt like we had the place to ourselves as it was offseason. Reception especially Stefania was super helpful as the airlines had lost some of our luggage and she helped place phone calls in italian to figure out how to retrieve them.

The restaurant on the 6th floor at villa Paradiso in Taormina has a direct superb view to mount Etna as well as the coast line. It is its best asset. The standard room is not large but has all the essential. the balcony is also small and overlooks the magnificent botanical gardens and the tennis court if you happen to be on this side of the hotel. , as well as a sideways view of the sea. the dinners varied, sometimes very good, sometimes less so. The waiters are very friendly and the staff are helpful. So refreshing to find a family run hotel. The location is ideal, everything is close by.
It would be helpful if the beach belonging to the hotel did not close down in later October while the weather is still good for swimming.

Room Tip: try for a superior room at the front. Tennis players at the side can be a bit noisy.

Ideal location for walking around town . Woke up each morning with a view to the sea on the left and Mount Etna top the right . Spectacular !! Very nice breakfast and the staff was attentive .
Happened to get a parking spot next to the front door . Hated to leave .

Room Tip: choose top floor (just below restaurant) for balcony and views .

Won't repeat what every one else has said. This hotel is excellent value, is close to everything in this beautiful town. The view from the little Pitzza place beside it is as good as views at the top of the town, for half the price and food was twice as good too.! The beach club and shuttle service are excellent. Most of the staff at reception are friendly and helpful, especially the guy! Same with the restaurant, most of the staff were attentive. The few that are a bit lax are very lax and can totally change the experience of guests in this hotel, on balance we had more excellent service than extremely poor service in both the reception and the restaurant., amazing the one persons poor attitude can affect the experience. The Lobby area which we had the pleasure of due to a stormy afternoon is just so comfy we didnt want to back to our rooms, it felt like our own private sitting room because of the way it is divided up.

Room Tip: Book a room with balcony and with recliners whatever the view!
