    The hotel has a lovely view over Giardini Naxos and the Bay. The pool was lovely as well and the fact that it had a chidrens pool was also handy. It is in close proximatey to the city centre this made it conveinent at night for dining and for shopping.

    To get to our rooms we had to walk up and down a flight of stairs which was exhausting for my elderly inlaws. Our room was under the pool, creating a constant smell of dampness. We felt that the hotel staff did not give us any information on the hotel and its commodoties. It was as if we where given the key and forgotten about. The web page mentioned a shuttle bus service down to the beach. But nobody not even the hotel staff mentioned that you need to book a ticket for the shuttle, it costs 4 euro a person and that there are only limited times of pick ups and arrivals.

    Fantastic views and location to Town, beaches, buses and cable car to beach.

    Allot of items seemed to be rounded to the nearest euro and some items ie: 5 euro for coffee and small beer seemed execsive. Same beer in shop 100 yds away was 1 euro 20 cents

    It was a hotel that was close to town but not IN town. It was near the quiet gardens and near the beach but not right in the midst of either. So, it was a great location so that you could be where ever you wanted to be in a short time by car or foot. The view from an ocean view room was serene and gorgeous...our room even had a view of Mt. Etna.

    Parking was difficult and the staff was not very helpful. One day we took a hotel to the beach -which is accomplished by taking the hotel shuttle. We were told that the return shuttle would be at 4:30 so at 4:20 we went to the meeting spot. After one hour and a call to the hotel, a shuttle came for us and the gentleman explained that he came earlier than 4:20 so we were just out of luck the first time around. Believe me, after one hour in the sun after a day at the beach, we were very exhausted and uncomfortable. I am sure that these shuttles are not directly related to the hotels they serve but the personnel at the hotel was rather indifferent to our experience. The night staff will tell yo things like "I only work at night so I am not sure about that..."

    Beautiful countryside, very good location, breakfast ok and very nice swimmingpool well located with view for mountain and sea

    room superior veeery expensive and we had to pay a lot additionally for kids in spite of the fact that it was doubleroom apartment... room not very clean and quality very poor for this kind of hotel and it's price, very low quality beds, very old tv set without international channells, lack of access to internet in room. I don't recoomend..it's not worth to pay such amount money for it

    We arrived at 11 pm and the porter opened the shutters onto our balcony ro reveal Mt Etna erupting 30 miles away! We were up most of the night watching it. Apparently it erupts only irregularly, so we were extremely lucky.

    Trying to find the hotel late at night was not easy. The streets are so narrow and the hotel is almost at the end of the one way system. We were lucky to find just one car parking space remaining in the hotel car park.

    Beautiful setting on the sea and built into the cliffs. Close to Positano and wonderful one fire beach. Delicious food in restaurant. Balcony overlooking the sea.

    Bed not comfortable.

    Very good

    The view of the coast and Mt. Etna was incredible. Nice pool with the beautiful view. Terrace for cocktails with piano player playing Frank Sinatra made me feel like I was in a 1950s Gina Lollobrigida movie. Very charming staff.

    The room was very small, the bathroom tricky to turn around in. The only amenities provided were shampoo and bath cream.The food in the dining room catered to packaged tours from Manchester. It was terrible-- more 1960s British than anything Italian.

    Good

    Great location. Comfortable rooms. Clean.

    We arrived on an extremely hot day and were denied airconditioning. Were told by the hotel staff that their policy was to switch it on only on 1st of June! Since they are into hospitality their policy should be the comfort of guests! We had an extremely difficult time trying to sleep in the heat! It was most unfair since we'd spent so much money and their 'policy' ruined our stay! Your site should mention their policy!

    Service was excellent. Room was lovely. The swimming pool was "to die for". An amazing view of Mount Etna.

    As with most Italian hotels the plumbing was not that great. Small shower, but this is a small complaint and would really recommend this hotel. Taormina is a lovely place to stay. The hotel is well positioned for the town

    The location is the best, near the Greek Theater and with an unforgettable view to the Etna and the sea. The people is very warm and efficient and the restaurante is excellent.

    Superb

    The location, Taormina, is just spectacular. The hotel views over the coastline, Taormina, Castlemola with Mount Etna as the backdrop cannot be equalled. The hotel is situated with excellent views of and access to Taormina. Hotel facilities are excellent, including a very good restaurant, swimming pool and is very very relaxing. The staff are excellent. The rooms are cleaned daily to the highest standards, almost clinical. Hotel is well situated for the many walks into and around Taormina, details are available from the hotel reception and also the tourist information office in the Corso Umberto (main street).

    This hotel is so good, I'm not prepared to waste my time trying to think of anything that I didn't like.

    Fabulous

    Location; quality of food, luxurious atmosphere

    Travel information (by car) on Booked.net confirmation notice, needs to be changed. Currently it directs you to the end of Via Bagnoli Croci but this is a one way street and you cannot drive up to the hotel. It is necessary to park, walk the 300 meters to the hotel and get directions from them which are rather complicated due to maze of one way streets through the town. Better directions on Booked.net confirmation email would be appreciated

    Superb

    The hotel is beautiful. It is walking distance to the ampitheater and the main downtown area. The staff was friendly and the food was good. The balcony was lovely. Mount etna is reachable by car.

    Like in many hotels in Europe, the double bed is actually 2 twin beds pushed together but the linens are twin sized.

    Restaurant menu and service, breakfast and cleanliness if room. Fantastic location and friendly staff.

    The heating in the rooms was too hot. We tried to turn it off and had to open our window.
