My partner and I selected this hotel independently from 2 differing sources and after checking it out on Tripadvisor and seeing its rating we booked it. No regrets. The hotel is fantastic and the staff even better. Their service puts some 5 star hotels to shame. Our sincere thanks to Charlie and Katherine and to ALL the staff for making this trip so relaxing and enjoyable.
All the rooms, the breakfast terrace, the pool and the bar area have fantastic views looking onto Mount Etna and Giardini - Naxos Bay.
The town of Taormina below is quaint and a shuttle bus takes you there unless you fancy a walk! It's a way down the hill.
The Greek amphitheatre is well worth a visit.
Restaurants are plentiful but ask for advice as some great recommendations from staff.
For a night in, check out the restaurant one road above the hotel. Splendid and very friendly.
