Location is great, you can enjoy wonderful scenery if you swim in the pool or your room is sea view. Close to beach and funivia to Taormina center.
Lovely clean pool and views over the ocean.
The view from the balcony.
Breakfast is very poor. We could hear all the voices and noise from the other rooms especially when closing the window shutters at night.The mini fridge which by the way its not so small, was also making alot of noise.The shower was broken. Also when we arrived we asked for the restaurant and we were told that there is and they have space of us. When we arrived later on the head waiter said that the only thing they could offer was buschaiola, pasta and fish which we dislike. Then he said they could cook pork quickly as well.
The location and the sea view during breakfast was great recomended only with half price deal or less
I dont know who give the stars.... This is a 2 star. Perhaps this was a 4 star during the 70s but withou mantainance during the last 40 years. Poor brakfast.
Close to the lift to Taomina, breakfast was good and resturant was also good
On a hill with limited access, A/C not cold enough for our comfort.
we had a nice view from our room, the staff were very friendly breakfast was basic but fresh
basic room, heather not working properly was really cold, parking is uncomfortably positioned on a steep slope
Great views and lovely pool.
No internet. Dinner set menu quite expensive for nothing too special.
Nice hotel, clean room.
Poor breakfast, no beach in front of the hotel.
The location is excellent. The view from the hotel is superb.
The room wo got smelled smoke because the previous guest was a smoker. In general the hotel was not very clean.
The hotel is very nice, has a great location and close to the cable gondolas that take you up the mountain- directly to the center, has nice a big pool.The staff was friendly and helpful.The room was big and it was very clean, we had with an amazing view from our balcony. We would stay again at this hotel and we highly recommend to all those that wish a great vacation in Taormina.
The breakfast was not very diverse but it was enough.
The location. It was within walking distance to the cablecar that took you up to the town of Taormina.
The owner of the Hotel was not friendly. He was always there watching, never smiling or greeting individuals. He was only friendly with people who came to the hotel on bus tours.
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.
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.
