A special trip for us and we can't speak highly enough of the place. the staff are attentive if you need them, nothing is to much trouble. you never get fed up of looking at the view. not a problem getting into town on the shuttle. drinks in the bar are a bit pricey and also the mini bar. breakfast was good, if you have lunch in thats very good, the hotel only cooks in one night a week, but excellant. we ate twice in the nearest restaurant up the hill, which again was excellent. this wasn't a cheap holiday , but you do get what you pay for. eating out in taormina was costly though, between 60 to 80 euros a night for two and we weren't going mad. had a beer and a bacardi and coke in a bar in town and i was charged 18 euros. i booked and travelled independantly as only ryan air flights to palermo fitted in , hired a car and drove over , which was fine, went through the middle of the island to get there but theres nothing in the middle, no tolls though either.. I'd have no trouble reccommending the hotel at all.
