We liked the shuttle to Taormina, which was very convenient, as was the free parking! The staff was lovely and everything was clean. The property was beautiful.

Weird cruise ship vibe!
The private beach was great and was really the only reason you’d stay at this hotel. Although you got harassed by people selling stuff who wouldn’t take no for an answer and you need to pay 3 euro for a towel. The beach bar had VERY limited food options and there isn’t a bar by the pool (perhaps this hotel is pitched at elderly cruise ship types who don’t want cocktails by the pool). Breakfast was below average. Mostly pastries and cakes that were frozen. Issues with the Wi-Fi connection. Shuttle bus - limited service, generally on time but it does leave early sometimes. The driver also dropped a lady who could barely walk at the top of the hill in the dark and I asked if he could drop her at the door which was ignored by him and then he drove down past the door to turn around anyway. Very random shuttle bus service as some nights they would drop you at the door. It you take a taxi to town it’s 20 euro. Definitely can’t walk into town. It’s over 4 kms and you can’t actually walk on parts of the road so it would be unsafe to do so. Overall the hotel was average. Guess it depends what you are looking for in your stay. I definitely booked the wrong hotel.

Hotel was clean and room was modern and well appointed. The staff accommodated a room change to the side of hotel with a view on night 2 which made a big difference. The beach is great - quiet and relaxing. Breakfast good quality buffet style. Beach bar food was not the best standard or variety but plenty of nice lunch options at places along the beach from the hotel. The minibus service to/from Taormina was really good - took the hassle and cost out of taxis.

On first look I was ehh maybe a not a good choice. But the customer service was great. The main floor rooms and outdoor space terrific. Dining room staff was also great. Their advice on a guide to take to argiento at dusk dead on. Negative a hard bed, a personal issue. All in all 4,5 out of 5

Lovely hotel with very comfortable and clean rooms. The staff are very helpful and kind. Close to the beach and they provide a frequent free shuttle service to the main town. Incredble gardens with beautiful palm trees and flowers. Strangely the trains run right past the hotel but a high hedge covers the view and they dont really affect the lovely experience of staying at the hotel.

Great hotel with nice rooms, lovely gardens, a great pool. Nice interior touch with perfumed hallways The breakfast food is tasteless. The staff can be nice but they don’t speak English except at the main desk. The food at the beach restaurant doesn’t offer anything proper.
