    Nice hotel, but definitely not a 4* one...

  • Couple
    4.2

    Hotel is situated very close to the beach i.e Isola Bella and to the centre

    Room was not enough cleaned ; fridge was not working well; lift was not working properly; as a view from our room we only had a building infront of our window not a sea view as promised; there was no variety on breakfast

  • Older travelers
    8.0

    Excellent swimming pool but it is a pity it is closed at 7 pm. For a holiday place it is also a pity breakfast is only up to 9.30 am. The room was not cleaned until after 6 pm each day. Good position near cable car up to Taormina.

    Reported the tv twice but it never worked. Outside lift very slow, old and usually not working because the door was left open. When reported the staff did nothing about it.

  • Group of friends

    I feel the advertizement on Booking .com for this hotel was not exactly correct. I asked if there was a gym at the hotel and was told that it DID have a gym. When we arrived at the hotel...no gym! Staff was helpful, especially Daniella who was on the desk. Hotel provide no tours of the area..,.,we were told we were too early, but they did not make any other suggestions regarding taking tours or hiring a guide. I would not stay at this hotel again but is was adequate. Also, I was told the hotel offered a shuttle service from the airport to the hotel, but no one got back to me regarding the shuttle service and we were departing within a few hours of booking.

    see above

    Good location, reception staff friendly (shame the same could not be said for the catering staff), clean, modern, spacious room, note that we paid extra for a superior room. We didn't use the pool. though it is a good size and looked clean.

    We booked this hotel through this site as part of a tour of Sicily. Our superior room was spacious, though we didn't need two TVs or the 'star effect' spangly lights above the bed, they would have been better of spending the money on catering (see below). The breakfast was the worst we've experienced in any hotel. The coffee was undrinkable, the water for tea only luke warm. Food quality poor, fruit juice tasted like it was re-constituted from a powder. Hotel full of package holiday groups, breakfast like a big bun fight. We stayed 3 nights and ended up having breakfast outside the hotel it was so poor. Locks broken on the toilets downstairs plus rarely any toilet paper. This is a 2* package holiday hotel pretending to be 4*.

    Modern rooms, bottle of sparkling wine as a compliment

    Two major problems: on the map in Booked.net the hotel is located in a wrong place. So I spent 1 hour walking at +35 Celsius trying to locate the hotel. I am 60 by the way. The hotel does not care that it cannot be found by its guests. The second problem is the staff - my grandson was staying at the nearby hotel with his parents and I was not allowed to keep him at my room for a night to leave his parents alone. It was done in an unpleasant manner, without respect, though I paid 700 euros for 3 nights to these people.

  • Couple
    7.0

    Perfect, idyllic location! Very close to everything. Were upgraded to a superior double on arrival.

    Room wasn't cleaned everyday- weren't given fresh towels etc. Transfer to and from the airport was extremely expensive, 90euros each way!!!

  • Group of friends
    2.8

    beds were comfortable

    I really advise you not to stay in this hotel!!! The hotel is supposed to be 4 stars but the pictures are far from reality: the hotel is really not welcoming, corridors are dirty, food is absolutely disgusting, what is supposed to be a sea view is about... 1m wide, we had to wait 2 days with 30 degres in the room before they were able to fix the aircon, and moreover the staff was not friendly and not competent, not welcoming at all and, more than not commercial, they scamed us. We really disliked our stay there.

  • Couple
    7.0

    The hotel is very central and the suite was very modern with amazing views.

    The pool area lacked cleanliness and not enough sunbeds.Also breakfast was very poor.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    staff were very helpful and cheery

    hotel was clearly not 4 star. It was in a shabby condition.classic room was very basic. Rooms were not soundproofed. WIFI only available in hall. Air conditioning could not be set below 24C, which is much too high. TV programs very limited.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    Family run, unstuffy, helpful staff and relaxed as a holiday hotel should be.

    Shower did not work at all, common parts were scruffy and not kept clean and we were upgraded due to the lighting problem on night 1 which meant we had to turn thec electricity supply off. Also, lift did not work properly, no internet for whole stay and room telephone did not work. Bad failings which were not corrected.

  • Couple
    5.8

    Excellent position and budget, compared to other hotels in the area. Our room was really nice, with a modern lighting system and a huge terrace with sea view.

    A 4 stars without internet!!! Breakfast is only until 9.30 which is too early for people on holiday. For an Italian the coffee was poor

  • Family with children
    9.6

    The hotel was very nice and clean and the entire staff was friendly!

    The breakfast was good but the hot food (eggs) was less than desirable.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Location is excellent. Very close to the beach and only 200 mts from the cable to go downtown Taormina

    Parking at the hotel parkinglot is very expensive, 20 euros per day, but there is a parking lot where the cable car is located for only 10 euros per day.
