Fantastic service in a spectacular location. Close enough to Taormina to walk but out of the hustle. The restaurant was outstanding. Would highly recommend. Biggest disappointment is not staying long enough

Great hotel with amazing staff
Our stay overall was just perfect. The hotel is perfectly located on the rock offering a spectacular view on the Etna and the sea. Our room was beautiful but the best was the service we experienced throughout our stay. The whole team was super friendly by heart and very helpful. We felt very welcome and can only recommend the hotel. We will for sure come back when we return to the area.

2/10 Poor

Big disappointment all around. Very rude staff. At breakfast you are told that 5 tiny pieces of fruits are enough for two people. Also right by the hotel is a mega telecom tower. Make your holiday more enjoyable and Pick a better hotel !

Excellent customer service, luxurious accommodations, delicious breakfast, and convenient shuttle transportation. Only downside is the ongoing barking from a neighborhood dog. I love dogs but several hours of barking each day was annoying.
