Clean enough to spend 4 nights; in the bathroom it was a problem : no shower hose, like a spring/fountain. very good location for beach. It will be nice the hotel should offer the sun beds on the beach free for guests, as they are on the pool. The breakfast is the worst, as Roger B said, for Italy! and the waiters are very unhappy!..Reception staff very nice instead....

We have recently returned from a touring holiday of Italy finishing in Sicily. Our last 3 nights were spent at this hotel.
A perfect end to a wonderful holiday. The room we had was spacious and well appointed with a balcony view of Mount Etna, the staff were polite and friendly.
Restaurant food was good and typical of the area breakfast was adequate.
The location of the hotel is just perfect near the airport and set in beautiful grounds.
If you are looking for a comfortable hotel to tour Sicily I think this ticks all the box's.

Room Tip: Go for a balcony

our room was clean and the pool area was very pretty. The food, however was appalling!!!! Probably the worst we have ever eaten....the waiting staff were surly and unobliging. Breakfasts were better than the dinners, but in a country with an abundance of fruit.....tinned fruit for breakfast???? As italian food is rated highly in the world it was a disappointment!

One of the problems of being a Trip Advisor subscriber is that you tend to be guided by the reviews. Well, the reviews of this hotel were quite negative but frankly I could find very little to fault it. In fact, it wasn't far off excellent.
We stayed as part of a group for 4 nights in June 2014. The room was spacious, with a big bed (very comfortable), lounge area, balcony and large bathroom. There is air conditioning and a fan above the bed (very colonial).
The shower was fine, plenty of wardrobe space and coat hangers.
Staff were attentive (not much English spoken). As usual (I'm going to stop complaining about this - I give up) the bar was poorly serviced, despite there being World Cup football on TV.
Food was excellent - decent standard for dinner and breakfast and plenty of it. Very smart waiters and you're in for a treat if you have a birthday while you're staying.
Swimming pool and grounds very attractive. Location OK, slightly at the end of the town and a bit of a walk to the main town area.
Would stay again and would recommend the hotel.

we had a room with a view of Etna and the gardens and pool/bar.there was an extra charge for the room upgrade rm542. everything was clean and tidy.the small fridge was usefull in room for cold drinks. The brekky was continental but substantial although aftr 7 days a bit much maybe...the dinning room was very inviting and the staff very corteous...yes the owner was there lots and the evening meals were on a grand scale .The quality ,quantity and service were all first class. visually a treat and .gents wore long trousers,ladies dressed up mostly,
the hotel was surrounded by beautifull flowers and features etc and the spa was ab fab and seemed underused.certain people did reserve pool side chairs even at 8am..but overall a hotel we could recommend for a fab relaxing week with an ab fab diff evening meal each night.
slightly hard bed and poor pillows but no big deal..
not much 2 do unless you book excursions..and their beach is all stones/peebles
wi fi too dear sorta but the hilton nearby had free in foyer
all in all 4 outta 5 for this rather nice 4 star hotel.

Room Tip: pay 4 upgrade room

On arriving at the hotel our bags were delivered to our room. We had a partial sea view room on the fourth floor for which we had paid extra.. The bathroom was tiny. The shower was a tight fit with two sliding doors which kept coming off the runners. Once my wife couldn't get out of the shower! I damaged a finger attempting to put one of the doors back on its runner. Adjoining our room their was an intercommunicating door which had been thinly boarded up. Consequently, our sleep was disturbed when the occupants retired and arose early (05.30hrs)! There was no welcoming brochure with instructions about tv and air conditioning useage.
The restaurant staff were surly. Dishes were plonked down. The food was good.the best experience at this hotel was in the evening when you could watch Mount Etna erupting. The glow from the crater and subsequent lava.flow was breathtaking!
The hotel's beach was located over 100metres away reached by walking down an unkempt alley. Well before the sun set the beach staff took away the umbrellas.
the reception staff were always helpful.

It was with trepidation after reading some of the horrid reviews of this lovely hotel, however on arrival the hotel looks beautiful, we checked in and got a lovely room on the 4th floor (420). The view was the sea and the lovely town of Taormina in the hills. Dinner is superb, all the staff very smart and courteous, I can't understand some of the comments about the dining room being chaos, as they coped very well, with nearly 200 guests per night and some nights they had events on in the gardens!!!! The gardens are beautiful and the owner Sebastion takes so much pride in them, having built the hotel himself, he loves to be hands on, and nothing is too much for him. The bed we had was a queen size and very comfy too. So please anybody looking to stay, don't let some of the comments put you off, we had an amazing 11 nights and will defo be going back.

Room Tip: Would loved to have had a room with seaview and etna as they have them in the hotel.
