Fabulous 8.6 From 218 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Room was spacious, beds were comfortable. The bathroom was a bit dated and the bath tub coating was peeling but otherwise clean. The breakfast was tasty with generous amounts of tasty tropical fruit. We stayed twice - one night at the beginning and one night at the end of our trip. Our second night was a nice room but over the casino which was loud. I asked for another room and was promptly given a quiet room in a different part of the hotel.

Thank you to all the staff of the Taormina Hotel
This was my first time staying here after the hotel being referred to me my a fellow traveler and I had a great time. The front desk and security staff (all shifts) was fantastic! The food was good, especially the burger. I took advantage of the wonderful massage on staff. The one thing I did not do when I was there was gamble since I am not that big of a gambler. The one downside was that the sliding shower door in my room was missing. Not a big deal for me as i made do. The other issue which is not the hotels fault at all is there was some road construction going on a few blocks from the hotel which caused some issues with traffic round the hotel during the day. Especially the dangerous intersection at the corner where the hotel is located. Other than that I loved my time there, and can't wait until I go back. Unless the change for the worse, I will stay here from now on.

Great stay
Attendants were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Kind of surprised that there were no hair dryers. I would definitely stay there again

Wonderful hotel by Costa Rica standards. Surrounding area dangerous at night. Take taxi after dark for safety. Fantastic restaurant on premises with casino and small bar with a good menu. WIFI was sporadic at best. Doesn't work in rooms. Staff very friendly. My advise is to book online with hotels.com Don't call the hotel, very few employees speak English and your reservation will not be booked accurately.
