“Great view”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Good location near the beachfront , just 25 minutes walk up to Taormina ( steep) and 100 meters to beach . A good base for exploring the region. Do not mind the first expression when you arrive outside the hotel, it could be much better than you think , it is all about which room you get . A wide scale of rooms, from room with big balconies to backrooms with nothing. A nice swimmingpool with a good view over the sea. Ok breakfast. Nice seafood restaurant next door .

Room Tip: Stay away from the rooms against the back,or at least try to see them before you decide. Rooms on th...

we stayed here after wanting a cheap getaway, and though the room is basic, we did pay extra for a sea view, and you do get one, and its amazing.

we had a small balcony which was fine, but what makes this hotel amazing is the pool and view out back.


the restaurant next door run by santino and wife tops it all off with a varied menu that's the best.

the staff were friendly and I will be back soon

Overall, really nice stay! The breakfast was an interesting array, great cappuccino!
Decor in rooms could use a revamp, it's very old and kindof drab. Internet was decent - that was a plus.
Very close to the beautiful little beach below and the funivia that takes you up to Taormina. It's open very late. Super convenient.
Gorgeous view from our balcony.

This hotel is quite basic and needs a refurb but it is in a good location if you are looking to spend most of the time on the beach. It has a great pool and the breakfast is quite good if you go early as it runs out quite fast. The biggest let down for me was that the bed was so hard i found it hard to sleep.

Nice views from front of hotel no view at the back as hotel is on the side of the cliff. If you are a person that struggles with LOTS of steps and slopes you need to stay in a hotel in the centre of the town up at the top of the cliff as you have to walk up a hill to catch the cable car (€3 each way). And the beach is down 150 steps too. Helpful staff at hotel, good breakfast. Ask for additional pillows as they are paper thin, the shower cubicles are minuscule, even my friend who is tiny struggled with the size. If you want a clean cheap place to sleep with a good breakfast this is ok. If you want anymore than this stay somewhere else.

Nice, quiet, clean and small hotel. Parking very hard but breakfast will make up for it. Beach too packed and cannot walk coz of the large pebbles! Also bathroom and furniture very old!needs refurbishment badly
