The hotel is in a quite position on the outskirts of the town, and we recommend its position as the town itself is noisy and crowed. The hotel does provide a regular bus service into the town or nearby beach, which is worth a visit. The walk into town is 15 minutes uphill, ensure you ask reception for directions. As mentioned by previous clients the hotel on first viewing is not much to behold, and could do with a coat of paint. But, once you enter the doors all that disappears, and the interior is that of any good 5 star hotel. Not the hotel for children as there are no facilities and no gardens for play. The people behind the reception are very welcoming and helpful. We recommend you must have a sea view room to appreciate the hotel views. If you can afford it have a suite, we had room 204 which was a good size room, the only negative was that the twin beds were narrow. The house keeping was second to none and every day there was new toiletries and bed linen and towels changed twice a day. The pool area was not crowed and there is no reserving of sun loungers. The pool attendant was a very helpful young man. Breakfast is typical european buffet style, but a cooked breakfast is available on request at an additional charge, which could be expensive. (2 euros for a boiled egg) Although it has been mentioned many times, the drinks in the hotel are expensive (16 euros for G&T) but all is expensive in Taormina.
