  • Beautiful location. Close to all the action but off the Main Street so it’s quiet.…

    Everything apart from the breakfast was fantastic. Although the buffet breakfast was ok and did the job to start the day, it wasn’t anything remarkable and the cereal selection was very limited. The hotel ticka so many other boxes, especially the room I had and the pool area, that a better quality breakfast offering would be an obvious easy win for the management. I would absolutely stay here again though, overall was great quality and value.

    The views from the hotel property are amazing. Well worth the extra to get a room with a view of the sea. The pool is huge so there's lot of room for everyone. Just be aware there's about 200 stairs to climb back to the hotel from the pool. The breakfast is very good with lots of options. Extremely convenient location if arriving to Taormina via bus, as the bus station is about a 3 minute walk. The location is also very close to the heart of Taormina so it's easy to walk to, but quiet as you're removed from the direct action.

    Loved our stay in this hotel. The location could not be beaten. It is in a stunning location at the rear, with gorgeous views from rooms at the rear and bar and restaurant. But also, has the bus station diagonally opposite. The airport bus drops you off here and coach excursions pick up from here as well as the regular buses and hop on and off ones. The staff are also a great credit to the Hotel. Reception and breakfast staff, especially welcoming and helpful. Breakfast choice offered something for everyone. I especially enjoyed their local cheeses, olives, tomatoes, fruit and delicious cakes. There was a hot selection, and plenty of juices, coffee, cereals, breads, yoghurts and alsorts. It is a very pleasant 10 min walk into the town centre, with stunning views all the way.The rooms were a reasonable size as well. Especially the bathroom. I honestly wouldn't hesitate to book this hotel again. You really do feel welcome.

    Loved it

    We didn’t get to stay for more than 1 night but we definitely loved the staff. Everyone was very attentive and welcoming. The view is superb. I can’t wait to come back. If I would have known before how beautiful it was going to be I would have stay a few more nights. Highly recommended!

    This hotel was in an excellent location in Taormina. We parked in front of the hotel, and did not have to move our car, as the town is walking distance from the hotel. The rooms were gorgeous, and the view spectacular. Most of our time was spent at the hotel pool, which is located about 6 flights of stairs below the hotel area. We had lunch there every day, as the temperature was in the 90's. The pool was very clean, well staffed, and relaxing. There is a nice little bar at the pool as well for an afternoon cocktail. Most people spent quite a bit of time at the pool, as we saw the same people every day. Our room had spectacular views of the water, as we could see the Italian mainland in the distance. The only downside is that the Air Conditioning wasn't quite as strong as the other 2 hotels we went to in Sicily, but at least they had it. Every morning and night we walked into Taormina, and it was not difficult to find a place to have dinner. Overall, we needed a relaxing conclusion to our trip, and found it at the Grand Hotel Miramare.
