    Don’t let the pictures fool you. The hotel needs a facelift. Although the room was a nice size and the bathroom was updated, the common areas were outdated. The carpeting was old and dirty. The Wifi hardly worked at all in the room, but worked very well in the lobby. The elevator was very old and took forever to come. Thankfully we were on the third floor, so we found it faster to take the stairs. The restaurant staff were very professional and accommodating. Couldn’t say the same for the front desk clerks. They nickel and dime you. You’re not allowed to bring hotel towels to the beach, but can rent them for 3 euro per person, per day. I never saw a plastic runner on the beach, which was pebbly. The shuttle to tauromina ran smoothly and on time. Keep looking, over priced for what you get.

    Where to start. Pros: beach-fronted (pebbly, bring beach shoes), nice restaurant & event space by beach, waitstaff v. pleasant, nice dining room (continental breakfast, pretty decent) Cons: Bait & switch occurred on arrival with room. No offer to refund difference or so much as an apology. Eventually verbally promised a refund - never materialized, so no integrity. I was not the only one this happened to. Lack of customer service to 'make it right' shocking. A train runs in front of the hotel between it & the beach, so be prepared when sitting on your balcony enjoying the view for it to rumble by multiple times a day. There's also a nightclub, & it runs until 2am on certain nights so be warned. The hotel itself is a 10 min drive into Taormina. A shuttle runs infrequently, otherwise 20 euros in taxis each way. Small details make all the difference, which this hotel sadly lacks especially as this was NOT a cheap option - 75% of front desk staff really couldn't care less, no coffee maker, no iron in room (you have to pay to send to laundry), they charge 3 Euro/day for beach towels & extra to sit on first two rows of loungers on beach (seriously). Overall, the place is looking tired and showing it's age. If they could get over the constant need to charge you for everything at every turn & ramp up their customer service, it might have all been such a better experience. If you do stay here, lower your expectations & expect to pay more than it's worth. A 3 star experience at best.

    Not overly impressed, Taormina not walkable

    Stayed here for 3 nights in June with my husband. The immediate area of the hotel doesn't have anything to offer. Taormina itself is beautiful but not walkable. There is a shuttle that goes from and returns to the hotel at certain times. There is however limited availability so it must be booked. The hotel is very dated and needs a complete revamp. The pool area is nice but again dated. There is a charge of €3 per day for a towel which is ridiculous. Should these not be free when you're paying €180 a night?! The food at the beach bar is average and overpriced for what it was. The breakfast was minimal but kept in line with what we've seen in other hotels in Italy. The room and bathroom were clean. Overall I wouldn't say that we were very impressed with the hotel. I would recommend for people to stay within walking distance of Taormina as it really is beautiful with stunning views.
