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.

The terrace looking out onto Isola Bella is gorgeous, and the view from the rooms over the bay was wonderful. There are ladders from the hotel's private beachfront into the sea, where you can swim out into the bay. The staff were very sweet and helpful with directions and recommendations. They helpfully made up our bed differently on the second night because we found the mattress a bit hard, which was great. Breakfast was lovely, lots to choose from, and the coffee is good. The location is great for Taormina - a two minute walk from the funivio station (which goes to Taormina every 15 mins until the last train down at 1am), so it's very convenient. They have a car park (it is 20 euros per night to stay, which is a lot but parking is at a premium in Sicily so if you have a car that's a cost to factor in). Sort of a cross between a beach holiday and a city break - perfect!

We visited this beautiful property in late Sept 2018 for our first trip to Sicily. After searching all over, we were delighted to find this hotel for a reasonable price and right on the water. It was everything we had hoped for and more!! The superior ocean view room was lovely, incredible view, nice and quiet, and beautiful terrace - worth every penny!!
But the best part of this hotel were the extremely kind people who work here. From the front desk to the super fun bar, everyone was so good to us! Salvo and Alberto were standout amazing new friends who took the very best care of us and made our stay there so fun! If you visit, you must meet them!! And the piano player in the bar was wonderful to let us sing with him one night :)
Can't say enough good things about this hotel. A MUST stay in Taormina! And be sure to check out Barcaiola right down the street, the lovely gift shop right outside the hotel gate (nicest people and cool treasures!), and Vineria Modi up in the town up the hill (incredible!!).
Thank you all again for such a wonderful stay! We hope to see you again!!
