The pools are lovely with towels provided and plenty of sun loungers. The view from the third floor pool to Castelmola is breathtaking. House Martins drink from the pool in the early evening which is wonderful to watch & great fun when you're in the pool - a highlight. The private beach is a short walk away (5-10 mins) or there is a complimentary shuttle bus. It is a raised deck with shades, loungers and towels. Rocky into the sea, but amazing snorkeling in clear water. The free shuttle bus is also available to/from Taormina, booking first thing in the morning is essential. Vast choice at breakfast. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the a/c was very efficient, there is a fridge in the room so you can chill your own drinks (the minibar is very expensive) and the patio had nice furniture. Staff were all really friendly and went out of their way to cater to our needs (offer for early morning breakfast boxes) helpful and spoke perfect English; our a/c didn't seem to be working at one point, Reception organised for someone to come and sorted it out immediately. We had a complimentary 10 minute welcome massage too which was delightful. The website doesn't do it justice. There are a number of places to eat within a 10 minute walk and you have to try a cannoli from Franco Casablanca.
It might be nice not to have music round one of the pools. Prices for food and drink were expensive.
The pools and the view
It’s just not a 5 star as sold
Situation in area with no public transport, no shops and hills to steep for people of my age (85) to climb. Phoned hotel to confirm twin beds on arrival a double bed and a sofa bed with a very thin mattrest. Charging points and taps not working. Room bar not up to 5star hotel. Did not like be given a letter to say what clients could not do including wearing bathrobes to the pool, Must not bring food into the hotel or bedrooms. Two open air pools one of for executives(what ever this meant) at the second pool there was only 3 choices of sandwich available as well as drinks. They suggest that they go to the beach if you required further food. 5 euros charge if you need a replacement access card. . The hotel bar was never open. To get to the beach we were told was between 200m-500m. I had to take a car to beach as the streets were too steep which was actually between 1 & 1.5 klms.. There seemed that there was a shortage of staff. Would never recommend the hotel
friendly helpful staff at reception, he shared a lot of detail pool area very nice, calm and welcoming facilities available yet didn't have enough time to benefit from
The stuff at this hotel go out of the way to make you fell comfortable, Both the bar man and the ladies at reception try there very best to be of service. Good and clear pool and pool area.
The restaurant is overpriced for the type of food served, Although well cooked and good in flavor one pretends to have a better variety in a restaurant that charges an average Euro 60 + per head. It is not as close to the sea as one may think.
