The hotel is located next to the main car park in Taormina Mar. Buses, taxis and the cable car to Taormina town are immediately to hand. Steps from the car park lead down to the beach.
Many rooms overlook the car park and have great views out across the Straits of Messina to the Italian mainland. Because it is a transport hub, the area is buzzing with people out and about their daily business.
The hotel is spotless, and the staff are attentive - if a little formal. Bedding and towels are changed every couple of days.
The food in the restaurant is great and is priced competitively with other local restaurants, which are easily reached within a 5 minute walk.
The hotel infrastructure is a little dated - wifi is only available in the lobby and its immediate surrounds; there is only one lift to the room floors above and it is slow by modern standards.
Because Sicily is so large, trips to the various points of interest on the island can start early in the morning. Nevertheless, the hotel was always happy to provide an early breakfast to get the day off to a good start.
In summary, a great hotel providing a perfect base for exploring Taormina and the broader landscape of the beautiful island of SicilyMore
