If you want to visiy Taormina, this is a best place. Very quiet, with a beautiful view from the rooms, good breakfast, excellent rest area by the pool. There is a bus stop by the hotel - you can go to Taormina by regular bus or visit an area by Hop-on-hop-off bus. We didn't have a chance to do it...

I wish would could review this property but they screwed up our booking and we never got to say there! We booked this hotel months in advance based on location, Trip Advisor reviews etc but when we arrived were told they were overbooked and could not accomodate us.

Reasonably priced hotel 15 mins from Taormina. The views from the dining room & sun terraces are beautiful. Rooms are spacious & clean with sea views. Breakfast was ample with good coffee. We always managed to get a sunbed when we wanted one. You definitely need a car to get round here, although we discovered a good restaurant at the...

We choose this hotel because it is near Taormina, but prices are not so crazy as in Taormina itself. We read the reviews and not all reviews were positive, but we were there in July 2016 and in our opinon the rooms and hotel were well maintained and clean and the beds slept well. The only minor point is the...
