We spent 2 weeks here in September and had a fabulous stay. As with all the previous reviews, the staff are so friendly and helpful, they really made us welcome, and couldn't do enough for you. All the rooms have great views of Mt Etna, and good size balconies. The shower cubicle itself was slightly small but that would be the only criticism of the room, which was otherwise lovely. We regularly used the shuttle into Taormina, which you could use as much as you wanted, for a minimal weekly charge, but several times we walked into town which only took 10 minutes at most (slightly longer coming up the hill back!!) We thought it was a great location and were so glad we were not by the beach where everyone was lined up in a row on the beach. There was a private pool ( not overlooked like some of the other hotel pools we saw!) with plenty of loungers and towels. The hotel offered dinner twice a week, but otherwise we enjoyed going into Taormina to try all the local restaurants. A great place to stay.
