About the Location
The east-coast town of Taormina has a bit of a split personality. The upper part of town is all glitz and glam, with designer boutiques lining cobbled streets and a fantastic restaurant scene. Up here is where you’ll find the majority of Taormina’s sights – medieval churches, centuries-old towers and the well-preserved Greek amphitheatre. The Corso Umberto I is the centre of activity, with a myriad of small streets and alleyways threading off the main thoroughfare.
A cable car links the upper town with Taormina Mare, where you’ll find a handful of bars, shops and restaurants, plus a shingle beach. Across the Gulf of Naxos is Mount Etna – a trip to this towering volcano is a must while you’re in Sicily, although you’ll be able to enjoy standout views of it from all over Taormina.

We are a family of 4 that stayed at this beautiful hotel for one week. It wasn???t enough. From our initial reception by Sonia and Alessia to our rooms with breathtaking views. The location is superb. You are on the water with beautiful day beds to layout on and a pool if you fancy. The concierge is led by Angela who is a gem. She helped me make our 20 year anniversary dinner so special and was there for every reservation and excursion that we were interested in. She went above and beyond her job to make sure we got in to restaurants and hired boats for the day and generally enjoyed everyday with something interesting planned. She was the cherry on top for us as we could not have planned everything without her expertise and help. The spa caters to all needs as my daughter and I both had amazing beauty treatments. You are a stone throw from the finucular that can take you into the heart of the town for dinners and walking around. We loved being on the water and yet so close to the town. Much better that way for the hot days where you want to lounge by the sea! The breakfast was divine!! Every morning Miriam guided us to our table and even remembered our orders, she was incredible! The array of food for breakfast is outstanding. Omelet bars, grilled vegetables, fruits, cereals, granitas.. you name it and they will try and accommodate! I can not say enough about the entire staff at this lovely hotel, there really should be more than 5 stars. In a city as beautiful as Taormina, you should only stay at a hotel that complements its beauty. I can only thank Atlantis Bay for making our week in Sicily so memorable!
