'This hotel is absolutely beautiful and relaxing but the gem of this place is the amazing staff. It was so relaxing despite traveling with two toddlers because the staff here were like mind readers. Both my children were sick with high fever during our stay and the hotel did everything to help us from ice bucket deliveries at 2 in the morning to doctor visits. Everyone gave us a sincere feel of concern. I have been to many nice hotels in my travels but I give this hotel my best score for the staff. Also all the excursions and sightseeing were booked seemlessly. Already planning a trip back for next summer in my mind.' R. - July 2014
'This an awesome amazing hotel with the most friendly,welcoming, attentive staff. The complimentary boat excursion is fantastic and well worth booking onto . The breakfast is five star . Rooms were traditional Italy and very stylish with beautiful ocean views no matter what room you book . The private beach is attended by wonderful staff . Make sure you take the complimentary shuttle to the historic little town of Taormina it has great restaurants and wonderful shops. Free hotel shuttle runs every 30 minutes. It's just simply the best there is not one negative thing I can comment on .' Jen - July 2014
'Fairly experienced luxury travelers and we've rarely, if ever, had a better experience. Incredible location-- regarding both it's exquisite waterfront setting and it's proximity to the cable car to Taormina (the latter a real plus). The staff made us feel like royalty and as if we were the only guests in the hotel. The restaurant was fabulous--not sure which was better the food or the service; expensive but worth every penny. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and look forward to our return.' Richard - May 2014
