My wife and I have just returned from a great weeks holiday in Taormina.
We booked last minute with Sunway and we received a first class service from them and their rep Leonardro. The Hotel was exactly as described by the various Tripadvisor reviews.We asked for a Sea view and balcony and it was well worth the supplement . The room was spotless and serviced daily. The room size was fine ,as was the bathroom and the beds are comfortable enough. Towels changed 3 times during the week. The pool which you access from the second floor is an ideal size with a decent number of poolside sun beds. There is also a 5th floor roof sun terrace which gets sun almost all day. Breakfast room has a great view of the bay. Breakfast is moderate but sufficient ,cereal , yogurt, boiled eggs, cheese , cold meat, bread and croissants.
All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. If you want a trip to the beach , for 7 euro per person the hotel will arrange it. The 7 euro includes a sun bed and umbrella ,return transfers and the use of toilets and changing rooms in the beach side Bar/ Restaurant, well worth a try . In the Splendid you are very close to the Main Street with many Bars and really good Restaurants, all within walking distance, which is just as well as Taxis are expensive.
Only downside to the location is some nights it can get noisy with passing traffic.
My solution was soft ear plugs and a Good glass of red wine from Tracaderos.
For location , value , friendliness and cleanliness I can highly recommend this hotel.
