"Brilliant stay and brilliant reviews"
Well what can I say this hotel is lovely!!! The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Spent two nights there as part of our Taomina week experience and if we didnt have another hotel booked on the coast would have definitely spent the entire week there. The views are breathtaking of Mount Etna and of the coast. If its a nice morning try and get up for sunrise to see Mount Etna at its most beautiful. I would have liked to have known that there was a hot breakfast option available, maybe I just didnt see it being offered. And also they could have had a few tables ready on the veranda to have the option of having breakfast outside. I would also say that the beds are a little too hard for my liking. The balcony attached to the room was amazing. It was nearly as big as the room itself. I will say though that they should have more comfortable loungers on the balcony as you just want to spend hours out there looking at Etna. Overall a great experience and we will definitely be staying there when we return next year. It was also nice to meet one of the hotel employees in a restuarant in Taormina a few nights later who was lovely and gave the impression of wanting to have us back again.
