Perfect location, with brilliant views and close to Taormina centre. Lovely pool area, with plenty of sun beds. Nice to not be charged for towels. The pool bar was a little expensive, which would be my only criticism. All staff were very helpful and friendly. A fantastic holiday. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

I was a little worried after reading some of the bad reviews about this hotel but I'm so glad I ignored them. This a grand classic hotel built in 1904 and they are trying as hard as they can to maintain its character and elegance. Our room was better than expected. We didn't upgrade just paid for a triple standard room. Not all rooms have balconies so we didn't expect on but we got 2! We had a family room which was split into 2 rooms, one with a double bed and one with 2 singles. Each room had its own tv, balcony, furniture, phone. The master room had a large family bathroom. The mini bar was cheaper than the hotel bar also. Our view was a side sea view, front Etna view and side town view!

The location is perfect at the beginning of Corso Umberto which is the main street. The Greco Theatre is at the other end of the street 15-20 minutes walk. It's much nicer at the hotel end actually.

The breakfast was good. Hot and cold options, cereal, toast, fruit etc and the staff are great. Hotel bar is lovely, sit inside or out with seaview. The pool is amazing, it's a 5 minute walk from the hotel down steps which is a good exercise! My 4 year old managed it fine every day. The views from the pool are stunning, overhangs the sea. Plenty of sun loungers in either the sun or shade. Towels provided by hotel.

Opposite the hotel is a bar on the corner called Sunset bar which does a great real ale selection and Aperol spritz are half the price here than further down the street. Also up this side street is a supermarket for cheap waters and beers. It's 4 euro a water at the pool bar or 30 cent at the shop. Next to the supermarket is a beautiful deli for canelli which is a pastry treat, really nice for lunch starting at 1 euro. Couldn't fault a thing!

The hotel was ideally situated for easy access to the town and wonderful views of Etna and the coast. The rooms were a good size, clean and comfortable with all necessities ie safe, fridge, hairdryer, TV etc. The pool was situated in beautiful gardens, again with wonderful views, although a bit of a walk from the hotel if elderly. Sun loungers and clean towels provided each day. Food was very good and staff very friendly. All in all a lovely hotel which won't disappoint.
