We absolutely loved it here, we wanted to stay forever. We were on our honeymoon and opted for a Junior Suite. We had put in a request for a room on the right side so as to get a better view of Mt Etna, and although the best room wasn't available on our first day, they were able to move...

Refering to the road closure that happened during mid April, hotel did nothing to assist the guests or ease the pain of going 20 minutes uphill with the luggage. I would expect the hotel to send a text (SMS) message to arriving guests telling them about the problem and advising them on the closest parking lot so guests will no...

The hotel is in a good location for all of the sights of Taormina and is set up on a cliff side with stunning views. The hotel is perhaps a bit dated in terms of decor, but it was clean and well presented. Unfortunately, service left much to be desired. The public road leading to the hotel was closed for...

Just back from a few days here, and if you look through my other hotel reviews, you'll see they are all generally very positive, and I like to give praise where it's due, so just two out of five "stars" for this is something I've given a lot of thought to. The main problem here was the attitude of the...

This hotel has such amazing views from the rooms! In fact amazing views from everywhere we went - the lobby, the breakfast room. Our room was spacious and clean with good attention to detail. Breakfasts were fresh and plentiful. Staff were. very friendly and helpful. Our week at the Monte Tauro was great!

I asked a Roman where his countrymen prefer to holiday, and he said 'Taormina', so I had to try it. I've been to a lot of places, but of all the hotels in all the world this is the only one I have made a return trip to. The building hangs off a cliff face so all the rooms are...

I booked a junior suite at the monte tauro with the belief that we would have the incredible view you see on all of the images and many people mention in their reviews. That view is indeed there and it is incredible, a spectacular sweeping view of the coastline with etna in the distance. However on checking in to room...

Great hotel with spectacular view from the balcony. Extensive and excellent breakfast with very friendly staff. We ate few times at the restaurant near the pool and it was also good place for snacks, pizza etc. Really nothing bad to say, just take consideration the steep hill to hotel (like elderly people). We had a rental car and the parking...

We have been to Taormina some years ago and this time for New Year we decided to re visit this enticing place. We stayed at Monte Tauro Hotel which I must say one may enjoy fantastic views of the sea and even of mount Etna from the bedroom. However, this hotel is situated in the middle of a very steep...

I stayed in room 605, but there are no bad rooms. Since the hotel is perched right on cliff, all rooms face glorious views of Giardini Naxos and Mt Etna. It is beautiful to just sit on your balcony and watch the twinkling lights on the river. The room was spacious with a very nice bathroom. I prefer soft pillows...

“Request a view of Mt Etna, if you are too close to the elevator on the left side it will block your view”

“Do not take a room in tier 14 (i.e. room 214, 314, 414, etc.) as they're right by the elevator.”
David1529, 18 Apr 2017 | Read review
“rooms to the right of the lift as you look at the ocean are best. 514 Terrible.”
  • The view from 514. Junior suite. Lift shaft to the right of the picture.
  • The view from 514. Junior suite. Not picturesque or private.
  • view from the restaurant and all rooms to the right of the lift.
