    Swimming pool was a delight and great view from hotel room terrace. Very fresh breakfast with lots to choose from. Staff helpful and friendly. Close walk to cable car and Isola Bella beach. Lots of nice restaurants around this area. Rooms were very comfortable, light and airy.

    Road to cable car was very dangerous to walk along especially with children. Swimming pool didn't open till ten am and closed and six pm an extra hour either side would have helped.

  • Family with children

    Good Service and beautiful panoramic views from the bedroom .

    Parking was a problem since the hotel has only seven parking spaces and it is on a hill and it was very hard to move the car in the evening ,since there would have been a risk that we wouldn't find parking on our return .

    The views from the hotel were great, nice pool with a good bar. The breakfast terrace over looked the sea.

    The location was not great, on the side of the road and a big walk up a mountain road to get tothe beach or the cable car, in saying that the staff and views made up for that.

    The staff were friendly, happy to help with information, spoke good English and even made us coffee at 5am before our journey back home.

    Good breakfast buffet and good sea view.

    Tiny room for a high price and they charged up to 6 euros per hour for internet access through their computer, which appeared to be 6-8 years old and exceptionally slow. No wireless anywhere and parking was atrocious, but available if you have a very small car and get there early.

    Honestly - don't know, it is hard to say - see below comments.

    This is definitely not a 4 star hotel - 2 stars would be a max. Basic decor, a bit worn up, old facilities, staff did not seem to be interested in guests comfort etc. Difficult to find even when using GPS - the local address does not match the one that is provided by bookings.com.

    the hotel is in a very good location for the people who want o visit taormina center cause its a few meters away from the cable car. Plus the Hotel owner is a very amazing person

    they fixed our broken air condition within one day

    uncomfortable bed, very small pillows, poor sheets with wholes

  • Family with children

    The view from the room was fantastic and the same can be said of the pool area.The cable car to Taormina centre is conventiently close.The staff was very helpful and allowed us to check in early and check out late.

    The access road is rather dangerous for pedestrians, especially at night.

  • Couple

    I liked the room with the sea view, the fact that we were so close to the Funivia (about 5 minute walk), yet far from the tourist noise at the same time. Everything was easily accessible, we went to the Beach on Isola Bella most of the times, that was about a 10-12 minute walk as well, which is ok for us.

    We stayed night evenings, so the breakfast was at the end a bit monotonous with the same selection of food - but of course this is not a so big issue.

    +/- location.

    On the photos the hotel looked like it was in an idyllic setting, but it was on an extremely busy road.Terrible breakfast. Strange tasteless dinner sets for high price. Certainly no 4 stars.We won't be back!

    I stayed 1 night in September, 2011. Nice place for fair price (Taormina hotels are expensive). Great view from the window and restaurant. Friendly staff.

    Fantastic location!! A cable car trip away from the heart of Taormina. Unfortunately didnt have time to use the beautiful pool and sun beds..definitely next time

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The views were stunning and the location was good for the beaches and the cable car up to Taormina. The Hotel was ok and in my opinion good value for money.

  • Couple
    8.2

    The room was nice, clean, very large and naturally cool (faced the sun but never used the AC). The balcony is also large. There are other nice thing that are nice, but they are expected to be like that at a 4* hotel.

    The hotel is placed on the national road, so there are no sidewalks. you have to go 400-500m (avoiding cars) to get to a beach, shop or the cable car that goes up to Taormina, or 150m, the other way, to another beach. (keep in mind the beaches around it are mostly private or really rocky)
