“Lovely, quiet hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2006

We stayed here 21-28 October 2006. The temperature topped 80f every day we were there, amazing weather for Sicily at this time of year. The Park Sliemi is the last hotel on the Letojanni promenade; a good 10 minutes walk from any shops although that wasn't a problem for us. We were given one of the first floor rooms with a huge balcony and fantastic ocean views (see photo).

Taormina is only 15 minutes away on the local bus which stops right outside the hotel. Be sure to visit the Greek Theatre for its amazing views over the entire coast-line. Then take the cable-car down to the beach at Isola Bella, which has a fabulous setting and is great for swimming. Very clear water and lots of fish to see.

The Etna trip is also great fun - although the final climb up to the lava flow is pretty squeesome; with thick sulpur-smoke wrapping round you and the altitude making every step feel like 100!

We also did the Panarea/Stromboli trip. Panarea is gorgeous - little white houses each with a tile name-plate. You climb up and up and finally reach a ruined city atop a cliff. At the bottom of this is a lovely sandy beach with (for October) quite warm water.

Perhaps because it was right at the end of the season, the hotel needed to sort its plumbing out a bit as the bathroom drains were rather smelly! We just shut the bathroom door and ignored it, but this might annoy other guests. Hopefully it will be sorted out for next year.

  • Liked — The proximity to the sea!
  • Disliked — Smellly drains!
  • Tips/Secrets — Definitely book a sea-view room.

My husband and I stayed here for one week at the end of September. Unfortunately our flight didn't arrive until midnight and as there were no buses running we ended up paying 120 euros for a taxi to the hotel.

We payed extra for a sea view. Money well spent. The view was beautiful (On some occassions we could even see Italy). Rooms were plain but spotless. Clean towels were provided daily. Staff were friendly but waitresses didn't speak much english.

The hotel had plenty of sunbeds around the pool area and sun terrace. Beds were also available on the shingle beach. The pool was also very clean.

We only ate lunch at the hotel. Snacks such as salads and paninis were available for between 3 and 5 euros (I would recommend the Al Tonno). At night we took the short walk into Letojanni or caught the bus at the front of the hotel to Taoramina. Letojanni has a number of restaurants, cafes and bars. I'd recommend ciao ciao for inexpensive but tasty pasta and pizzas or if you fancy treating yourselves try Da Ninos on the sea front for seafood.

Taoramina is a beautiful, medieval town. Lots of shops, bars and restaurants. Not as expensive as we'd expected. Last bus to Letojanni is at 9.45pm however a taxi was about 15euros. We got to know one of the taxi drivers who offered to take us to the airport for 75euros when we were retuning home. The journey was made even more spectacular as Mount Etna had begun to erupt that night. Was amazing to see.

Overall, we had a enjoyable, relaxing holiday and definately hope to return some day.

  • Liked — location - sea view
  • Disliked — shingle beach
  • Tips/Secrets — be mindful of cost of taxi from airport

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Park Selimi for 10 days end August/Start September. We had a sea view which was absolutely stunning. The best view I have ever had in any hotel.
I would not even bother booked a non-sea view as you will end up looking at a road! It is worth every penny for the sea view and it made the holiday for me

The hotel is spotless as is the pool and beach. Breakfast is ok and you can get paninis and salads in the bar at lunchtime. The dinner in the hotel restaurant is below average for what is available in Sicily. We only ate there on our first night and were served 3 coursed wihing about 20 minutes so it was all very rushed. Also, the house wine is pretty grim!

ILetojanni has some great bars and restaurants and all are very cheap. I would especially recommend Caio Caio on the main strip for great food and teh Twin Pub for good live music.

Overall I would recommend this hotel for couples wanting to get away from it all. It was very quite, at times too quiet especailly in the bar but this can be an advantage at times

Oh and make sure you go to Mount Etna - stunning!!

Stayed August 2006
