    Very Frustrated with and this hotel

    We have not visited this hotel. We were booked to stay there July 5 to 12. Due to covid 19, we could not travel and the hotel was actually fully closed during our scheduled stay. We have been trying to get a full refund for this hotel ever since through with no success. We have had many online chats, emails and a phone call last week and never get any resolve. We are constantly told we will hear back within 72 hours but never hear anything back. We are very frustrated with and this hotel who apparently never responds to their calls. We are not willing to settle for a voucher that is only good for 1 year. There is no guarantee that we can make it to Sicily within the next year from Canada. If we do get a refund, we would consider staying at this hotel in the future should we make it to Sicily.

    Good place for a couple night stay

    The hotel has very friendly staff. The location is a bit remote, but only a couple of minutes walk from the local services. In case you have a car, be ready for a bit challenging parking...However, very good value for the money!

    Ordinary tourist hotel

    The hotel was fine but nothing special. Taormina is expensive in general, though, so not a bad deal for a short trip

    We've just spent a very enjoyable week at this hotel. We read the reviews prior to staying and as a result went with a little trepidation.Some context is needed. Maybe people's expectations are more than ours. The staff were friendly and helpful, particularly on reception. The views from our room (on the 5th floor) were incredible. The swimming pool was lovely. The breakfast was as expected with rolls, cakes, eggs, bacon, sausages, fresh fruit etc. You couldn't complain. Sure, the short walk to town was along the road but you can't blame the hotel for that. You needed your wits about you walking anywhere in the region! Sicilian drivers don't take prisoners. However, with all the hills and neverending steps up and down to the beaches meant we came back a lot fitter than we arrived. Just don't get me started on the local buses and timetables! Overall, a very pleasant stay.

    The parking was a nightmare! The hotel is on the main highway so it was difficult to walk to the area to catch a bus to the top of the hill. The room was nice as was the breakfast and the view from the restaurant was very nice.

    Savings bordering on stinginess

    Savings bordering on stinginess Toiletries-no, disposable plastic cups. In the fridge - 2 bottles of water (small) + a can of soda, I asked at the reception if it is welcome, I was told that it is a full price minibar !! Breakfast - non-fresh tomatoes and no more types of vegetables, very cold fried egg !! Stinginess is evident in everything. Otherwise the shower is old-fashioned and very small..

    Good hotel, friendly staff

    We had a very good stay at the Bay Palace. The old town of Taormina is high above. There is a cable car that runs up and down to the town, €6 return. This can be expensive if you visit the old town a lot during your stay. However, beIng lower down its convenient for the beach. I believe there is a bus service but we didn't use that. The pool at the hotel is good. Breakfast was reasonable with a fantastic view from a table on the balcony. The hotel attracted couples and families from all over Europe. Parking, as it many towns in Sicily, is difficult to say the least. There is very limited parking on a steep hotel driveway. Most parking is on the road - again somewhat limited. In all, a good hotel for a reasonable price (for Taormina).
