We needed a positioning hotel for Taormina early the next day - this hotel worked out pretty well. Very helpful and friendly staff. Small niggle #1 - two extra pillows would be better than one per room. Small niggle #2 - consider 'normal milk' in addition to unsweetened milk as an option for breakfast. Major issue - pretty noisy above us beyond the stipulated 10 pm quiet time - I was too tired after a late flight to really notice but be aware - i would insist on the top floor to avoid the shoe tapping effects on the roof. Otherwise, great stay.
A lovely traditional family run hotel with a relaxed atmosphere .The matriach, Donna, was always there to greet you with a smile . The staff were all very friendly and helpful.Their local knowledge and advice took us to lovely places we would not have otherwise not have visited which made a real difference to our holiday. The room was comfortable, clean and breakfast was good.
When I was reading other reviews, before I booked the hotel I was a bit skeptical about all the positive comments about Donna Rosa hotel.However, after being there I can claim that it is such a charming place as many other wrote. Our room,balcony, sea view,only 30 meters from the beach,hospitality of the staff, cleanliness, atmosphere,location (14km from Thaormina, surrounded by the two villages where "The Godfather" movies were filmed)...make this place an excellent choice for a vacation. All in all we got much more than we had expected. Coralie who runs the hotel brought in it the perfect combination of German sense of order and French charm, which together with the natural beauty of Sicily makes your stay remarkably pleasant. Special thanks to the receptionist Tatjana who made me more familiar with Sicily during my first visit than I'm with some of the places I've been to 10 times in my life. Finally,I would highly recommend this place to those who like both lazy days on the beach and exploring historical and natural sites, one thing is for sure you will not be bored.…
It was great to stay there,the people who work there was so nice and friendly.The location is great too.The hotel rooms were cozy and cute.I am happy i stayed there. Me and my family was happy too.I really think that hotel is awsome.
Had a wonderful experience staying in the Donna Rosa, a group of us were over for a wedding and the service we received here was akin to staying in a 5 star hotel. My shoes for the wedding went missing on the journey over (which I only noticed when we were about to leave for the wedding) and the owner drove to her own house and brought me a selection of lovely shoes to choose from, one of which I wore to the wedding. I don't know what I would have done otherwise! All in all a fantastic place to stay, you feel like you're in the real Sicily. Donna Rosa herself is fabulous too and gets up to greet guests coming in no matter what the hour!
