10/10 Exceptional

Gracious hotel with views and stunning terrace for dining and drinks. Well-trained staff responded quickly to every question and request. Breakfast was generous and delicious with plenty of fresh options. Rooms are simply appointed but comfortable and ours had beautiful balcony to enjoy the view and the ocean breeze. Walking to town might be challenging for some, but our 60 crew enjoyed the exercise. Hotel provides free parking and shuttle to downtown and Greek theater.

6/10 Good

Clearly a special property but, in overall terms, the level of service does not match what I would expect from a 5* hotel and some money needs to be sent on room maintenance. Shuttle service is important given the hotel's location between the beach and the town and we were let down disappointingly by the shuttle after over 5 hours on the streets and in the heat of Taormina.

8/10 Very Good

Overall this was a very good property. It’s definitely worth the extra money to book the room with a balcony over looking the water. The view is beautiful. Breakfast is very good including the fact that you eat on the terrace over looking the water. The hotel is clean and very quiet. You can walk anywhere from this location which was great. That being said, I didn’t give it a 5out of 5 because it is a bit tired. The wifi/internet is terrible. The signal continued to drop in and out. Every time we opened the patio door, the AC would turn off (fine from an eco friendly point of view) but once the door was closed and locked again, we had to jiggle the door for awhile to get it in just the right place to get the AC back on. Had maintenance look at it twice - no fix. Also had issues with consistent hot water in the shower. That being said, preferred to look at the views than the internet and if you have short showers, wasn’t a problem with the water.

Nice hotel for a romantic getaway
It is a nice property with a good view of the sea. Air conditioning in the room was not the best, could not get the room to fully cool. One of the bottles of water in the refrigerator was already opened by a previous guest. Staff is very attentive. Only knock is the restaurant, very overpriced for the value received. As someone with 30+ associated with the service industry I’d rate the menu as pretentious. Breakfast on the other hand was perfect.

bed bugs in paradise
the hotel is lovely..the views ,from the rooms the pool and dining terrace are to die for. The location in relation to the town was perfect ..the hotel shuttle was reliable and always available.Breakfast on the terrace was excellent However we noticed that despite paying for a deluxe room our balcony was smaller.than other deluxe rooms The room did not have a coffee maker or iron..(despite paying 400 euros/night ).We were told that only the suites had coffee makers. Big negative were the terrible bedbugs that devoured my husband

We had a nice stay overall but the hotel was not as luxurious as expected. The decor is in need of modernisation, the bathroom was too small for the room and the service was sometimes poor. The hotel is in a good location, the breakfast buffet was very nice and the pool area has a lovely view.
