Great hotel, with spectacular views of Giardini Naxos and Mt Etna. We booked the Junior Suite which was very spacious, comfortable and well-designed. Reception service was impeccable. Building itself has some great aesthetics.

We'd booked a classic double room with terrace and sea view, but on checking in we were upgraded to a junior suite. The hotel, which clings to the edge of a steep cliff, was designed by a Roman architect (surname of Gatta) in late 1960s and built in 1970. It has a classic modernist aesthetic and some striking features, such... More

The service, staff, facilities and amenities are excellent. The driveway leading to the town is steep so good walking shoes are imperative. There is car service to take one to the top of the driveway, though we never used it. Pay the extra amount and select a room with a view to the sea. Its worth it. Breakfasts were superb.

The hotel is on eight floors starting with reception and ending in a lovely pool. Because it clings to the slope all rooms have a sea view and balcony. Everything is good quality, the beds are comfortable and the breakfast buffet very good. The staff are very friendly and attentive. There is parking at 10€ per night, but you need... More

We loved this place, staying for 9 nights in October 2016. Blessed with fantastic weather we made much use of the pool terrace, enjoyed the views both from here and the breakfast room. The hotel is built into the side of the cliff and hs aslightly quirky feel with modernist styling and architecture that we loved.Concrete can be really cool!... More

Beautiful hotel with a breathtaking view from our deck! The hotel is modern, the room was big and clean, with a very nice bathroom. Staff were very nice and helpful. Breakfast was a nice spread. It's a little tricky to find if you're driving yourself, as the road looks more like a walkway, but everyone in town seemed to know... More

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Great ocean views and centrally located. Best views are the room numbers from 1 to 5 on each floor. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful.

I have stayed here many times and I can honestly say that all the staff, at all levels, are excellent. They are very professional and extremely helpful. This hotel never fails to deliver a perfect stay as it is close to the town centre. The rooms are very comfortable. Lovely pool too. There are lots of steps in Taormina so... More

Very nice west viewing. Nice rooms. The pool now is cold, but not too cold. At the coast now parking a big big ship, like a hotel. The reception on eighth floor. It so funny because our room is on sixth floor which is -2 floor.
