Everything was great in this historical property. Fantastic views of Mt Aetna, the Greek theater, and the sea. Wonderful service at the pool. Amazing well tended gardens. Lots of lovely touches: waters, comfy robes, big towels, toiletries, etc. Very tasty breakfast. You definitely get more than what you pay for here.

Beautiful hotel and surroundings. Everything was to the nines except there were ants in my room and the staff didn't take it too seriously.

10/10 Exceptional

The hotel is stunning. It feels like a museum, there’s so much art. The views are incredible; the staff is very kind, helpful, and knowledgeable. The rooms are beautiful, especially the bathroom. I just wish my room had a bathtub, otherwise it would have been perfect. Great location too - close to everything (restaurants, shops, some of the main Taormina sights). I’ll definitely go back!
