I was apprehensive after reading some of the reviews, however overall the hotel is of a good standard. The staff are friendly and helpful. We had a room with a seaview, the view is lovely, well worth paying extra for. The rooms are nice and clean, yes - the bathrooms are a bit tired, and the breakfast is a basic...

2 or 3 star hotel at very best. Dirty shower with mold. Cheap bedding. Bare rooms. No Internet. Not a good location. Front desk is somewhat helpful and nice. Terrible entry. Almost impossible with a car. Wouldn't even consider staying here for food.

To the folks who didn't like their "small" rooms - if you went to Taormina to spend time in your room, you picked the wrong vacation spot. We ended up "upgrading" to a room with a view and it was large, spacious, and the view was worth a million - yet we spent very little time there. Taormina and the...

We spent 4 nights here in Taormina and after a long flight could not have our bags brought up because there is no bell boy so we struggled our bags up the large hill for a driveway, not exactly fail safe for the elderly or children. The restaurant is only open a couple of hours for dinner and the breakfast...

Myself and my partner stayed at the Bay Palace hotel for 5 nights which we were incredibly happy with. After reading some of the negative reviews we were initially a little apprehensive but on arrival we were instantly reassured we had booked the right one. We were given a room with a spectacular sea view and happily enjoyed our free...

We stayed at this hotel during half term week at the end of May/beginning of June. We were on a half board package holiday.
