If you want to be in Paradise please go to the Baia Taormina hotel! Beautiful location , crazy stunning sea view with the Sicilian cliffs. Stunning breakfasts at the terrace and a cozy comfy room with a large balcony. We stayed at the regular rooms not at the palace and we were very happy. The room was cleaned and taken... More

I have been here for 4 nights 2 weeks ago. The hotel is 15 min from the centre of Taormina, there is a free shuttle who takes you to the centre, but the last one is at 23.45, you need to pay 25euros of taxi if you want to stay longer enjoying around. The room is nice and clean, maybe... More
