We've just returned from a very nice stay at this hotel. The hotel is perfectly situated on the edge of town, near the bus station and the centre of Taormina. The pool area has lovely views across the bay, and the pool itself is a good size with plenty of sun beds (towels free), and a bar serving food and drink (plus resident cat). Our room was on the 1st floor and was quite small, and although had a sideways sea view, the balcony was a disappointing size - there was one table and two chairs but only one of us could comfortably sit there, but since we didn't spend much time in the room, it didn't matter to us. The beds were comfortable, hot showers always available and towels changed when you left them on the floor, so basically everything we needed in a hotel room. Breakfast was fine, although sometimes certain foods ran out, and took a time to be restocked, but this may have been because there wasn't always enough staff at breakfast on occasions. The gardens around the hotel were beautifully kept and the hotel tastefully decorated with a classic style flavour. The majority of the guests were of the older generation - we felt quite young in comparison (and we're middle aged). The reception staff were polite and helpful. The waiters were also polite but perhaps they all could take a tip from the hotel porter, who was also helpful, but smiley with it. All in all, we enjoyed our stay here and if we were to return to Taormina, would very likely stay here - we would probably upgrade to a sea view though, as these rooms looked bigger.
