    From the moment we arrived the staff were wonderful to us, helpful and always accommodating. Our room was clean and seemed recently modernized, like most of the hotel. The breakfast was abundant and coffees were made to order, again helpful staff. The hotel has a lovely swimming pool, which seems rarely use, so its quiet and the lifeguard brought me coffee. The hotel has an arrangement to a local beach club, 8 minutes away, where you can pay an day fee for beds, umbrellas etc. There is a lovely beach and a sea water pool. Again the staff were friendly and helpful. There is a lovely affordable restaurant at the beach club. There is free parking at the hotel, but a 10 Euro parking fee at the beach club. You can park on the street if you buy a paid parking ticket- just be careful they do clamp and two cars in this town and Taormina. I would definite return to this hotel!

    The only thing we didn't like is the hotel seemed to use a very strong detergent to clean the common areas, and we are sensitive to chemical cleaning products. Most of the staff spoke English, one receptionist spoke less English and was not that great with directions- just saying it was easy when we asked for directions... so, we asked another staff member to print directions out. There could be an information booklet in the rooms about getting to the beach club and more information on the beach club fees however, this hotel is great value for money and was an overall great experience.

    The room had a lovely design. Great, beautyful view from the room, terrace and breakfast area. Nice pool area.

    Bathroom old fashioned compared to the room. The hotel is in the middle of rocks... You need a car to reach anything, beach, Taormina etc.

    Fabulous

    Super helpful front desk staff.....Waiter at breakfast also extremely efficient and courteous. A short drive from Taormina...without the headache of being in town. Good value for money considering the expensive nature of the area. Beautiful setting on cliff overlooking the sea.

    a/C was not working in the room we were originally checked into...staff immediately looked into seeing if they could repair it...and when they could not...IMMEDIATELY Moved us to a room with working a/C. Gentleman at front desk was wonderful...dealt with the issue professionally and quickly....so this is not a complaint at all. They handled a broken a/c quickly and professionally

    Very good

    Hotel staff and administration did their utmost to offer an excellent service.

    Location was a bit far from Taormina. Although the hotel offered a shuttle service, the last trip is at 1800 hours. Which is a bit too early to enjoy Taormina by night. The public transport doesn't go up to Marina D'Agro. It's excellent if you have own transport.

    Superb

    The room had a nice design and a wonderful wiev from the terrace, and it was very clean and the beds quite ok. The hotel has a great swimming pool and a big area, which seems rarely used. There is a lovely restaurant at top floor where you have breakfast which is almost perfect. The staff is helpfull and very friendly. We felt very relaxed and enjoyed the whole week. We had a room under the restaurant and were awake around 7.30 when people had breakfast, but it wasn´t a problem for us. In the evenings it was quiet. You have to have a car to reach everything outside the hotel. Taormina is 7-8 minutes away with car. And everywhere you go you has to pay for parking. We will absolutely recommend this hotel. It was wonderfull!

    We don´t have anything to complain of because if we had a problem, the staff did everything to solved it and that´s the most important.

    We loved the sea view + scenary that you could enjoy from the balcony/pool/restaurant. Although some people consider it a bit remote, we liked that we could get away from the very touristic Taormina; the hotel is however very well connected by public transport. Breakfast- great choice and it changed troughout our stay.

    I would recommend the hotel to clearly state in advance the rates applied for using the beach sunbeds+umbrellas/ minibar. We found those out when we payed for the room . I would also recommend the pool area to be better maintained. There were a lot of ants there and you couldnt help to get leafs /dust /ants on you feet and carry them in the pool. Restaurant a bit pricy but sword fish was delicious. But overall - excellent stay!

    Exclusive

    Die Zimmer sind modern ausgestattet sowie sauber und gepflegt. Das Personal war jederzeit sehr freundlich und es gab immer einen Ansprechpartner, der deutsch oder englisch sprechen konnte. Die Lage des Hotels ist wegen dem wunderschönen Ausblick auf Taormina und Umgebung super. Bei dem meist guten Wetter kann man sogar bis nach Festland-Italien sehen. Die etwas erhöhte Lage an felsiger Küste gefiel uns sehr. Das Restaurant hatte ein schönes Ambiente und bot qualitativ gutes Essen, weshalb wir es oft nutzten. Auch weil man hier zu gewohnten Zeiten essen konnte, denn auf Sizilien bekommt man in manchen Restaurants vor 20 Uhr kaum etwas zu essen.

    Falls man häufig dort ißt, lohnt es sich evtl. über Halbpension nachzudenken. Die Wege zu den nächsten Ortschaften/Stränden sind zwar nicht weit, aber ohne Mietwagen ist man wohl doch sehr eingeschränkt. Trotzdem sollte man erwähnen, dass das Hotel auch einen Shuttleservice zu eigenem Strand bzw. Taormina anbietet.
