This is fine 4 star hotel in a very central location in Taormina next to the bus station and a short walk to the main streets. The facilities are in good shape and the staff are generally quite helpful. We would particularly recommend the half board as the evening meals were very well done. Our room was quite small and the shower needed to be renovated, the plumbing is also quite loud. Overall we would recommend.

The hotel grounds were lovely. Very well kept. However, our room was very noisy. The walls were paper thin and if anyone flushed a toilet, it sounded like a bucket of water was being thrown down the wall. Not great when people were up and about early or late. Breakfast was good with excellent choice. There could be more lunch choice at the bar and by the pool. The loungers could also do with an upgrade. Some were broken and they didn’t allow adjustment to sit up. The location was excellent. The bus terminal is right next to the hotel, a short walk to town and to the cable car.

Amazing views

A perfectly pleasant hotel for the price paid. Lunch on the terrace was lovely and the pool area and grounds well maintained ,clean, with lots of sunbeds. Loved the jacuzzi. Lots of steps and different levels if not very mobile

This hotel is in a good location, minutes walk from the bus terminal, town centre amenities, ancient Greek theatre and cable car to the beach. The pool has plenty of sun loungers, even in August and a deep, cool swimming pool. The pool is 2m40 - 2m80 deep with no shallow end which may not suit non-swimmers/children. The breakfast buffet has plenty of choice, hot and cold food and drinks with something for everyone. Our standard double room was large with good air con but the bathroom was a bit mouldy and had lots of hair in the bath plug hole. Staff on reception were friendly and helpful but other staff were polite but not particularly friendly. Taormina is a busy resort with many bars and restaurants, set in beautiful narrow streets. It has shingle beaches and a fantastic variety of marine life easily viewed when snorkelling.

Gut gefallen hat uns die Tatsache das dass Personal immer bemüht war zu Helfen, und es einen Kofferservice gibt, der aufgrund der Weitläufigkeit des Hotels als absolut hilfreich zu bewerten ist. Kritikfrei war der Aufenthalt leider nicht, wobei hier vielleicht auch der Unterbringungsort auf dem Hotelgelände entscheidend ist: - Frühstück: leider keine bis wenig Abwechslung beim Angebot, kann gerade so als geht so bis ok bewertet werden - Zimmerausstattung/Wohlfühlcharakter: ok, aber nicht anspruchsvoll, als sehr schlecht bewertet wird die Hellhörigkeit (man hört wirklich jedes Geräusch, auch die Klospülung des Nachbarn) - Meerblick: nicht wirklich, wegen zu hoch gewachsenen Bäumen - der Rest war so lala... Grundsätzlich war das Hotel für uns sehr schlecht mit dem Navi zu finden. Auch führten etliche Telefonate mit dem Hotel nicht wirklich zum Ziel. Wenn wir auf die versprochene Hilfe/Lotse des Hotels gewartet hätten, würden wir vermutlich heute noch warten, der Zufall hat uns dann beim Auffinden unterstützt. Die Sprachkenntnisse des Hotelpersonals was die Sprache "deutsch" betrifft sind als schlecht zu bewerten, ohne Englisch wird es schwierig!

hyvä hotelli, sijainti lähellä linja-autoasemaa

Pros: Huone oli hyvä ja tilava mutta äänieristys varsinkin kylpyhuoneen kohdalla oli huono. Aamiainen oli erittäin hyvä ja runsas. Yleiset tilat avarat.
Location: Sijainti hyvä linja-autoaseman ja Taorminan pääkadun lähellä. Kreikkalainen teatteri ja muut nähtävyydet kävelyetäisyydellä. Liikuntaesteisille vaikea
Hyvä matkakohde ja hotelli. Nähtävää ja koettavaa riitti, Taormina on kaunis kaupunki. Portaita ja korkeuseroja on paljon, joten huonosti liikkuvien on hankalaa kulkea. Myös lastenrattaiden kanssa on vaikeaa.
