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.

This is a very attractive hotel built into the cliff and located in a private bay with lovely views. The nice bits are the exceptional staff, all friendly and nothing too much trouble, the wonderful breakfast - excellent choice and quality, lovely room with larger than normal balcony and comfortable chairs as well as nightime turndown service something that not all 5 star hotels offer. There is a lovely pool with plenty of comfortable sun beds and complimentary fruit kebabs were a nice touch mid morning. We had dinner one night by the pool by candlelight which was very romantic and superb fine dining backed up by excellent service.
The noisy bits - a train runs along the back of the hotel and if you were staying in a room towards the tunnel end of the hotel this would be noisy as trains run through every 20 minutes. Having said that we did get used to it. The worst of noise was later at night with people returning to their rooms with loud footsteps and luggage being trundled along the corridors because there is no carpeting.
Overall a beautiful hotel with a 5 minute walk to the cable car to Taormina so convenient if you fancy going to town for dinner but if you like to be by the sea this cannot be beaten. There are one or two good restaurants within a minute walk from the hotel and a couple of small shops so very handy.

The hotel should not be 5 star. The rooms from inside are very old. Almost everything seemed like it was broken. The service was terrible except for 1 person in the concierge that was Angela. The 2 stars are for magnificent view of the hotel. The breakfast was same everyday. The hotel needs to up their service game. People at reception can???t handle their staff. Not very happy with our stay.
