"A 5 star hotel at the heart of the old Medieval Ci"
We got an upgrade to a sea view room. The room is clean and has a complete amenities. The view of the sea and the view of Mt. Etna are incredible.
The only problem of the sea view room is that the rooms face to the bar. When they have live music night, they play music till 1-2am in the morning. Even we closed the window, we still can clearly hear the music.
El Jebel is conveniently settled off a bustling walkway through Taormina, with great access to restaurants and boutique style shops. It is a small hotel, well styled and the staff can't do enough for you. The rooftop terrace is great for a meal and some drinks, but not the cheapest. My only issue was that our room had an ajoining door to connect to another room, which meant we could hear *everything* in the next room. This was the only downside to an otherwise superb hotel experience.
Most of the guests were couples and I think this hotel would be limited for families, with no pool area.

Great location for exploring Taormina and for excursions as the bus terminal is not far. Not close to the beach if that is what you want but you can take cable car to beach or hotel offers shuttle service to beaches further away at a cost. Clean modern room and has a pool area too. No restaurant for evening food but breakfast is good.
It was fantastic. It had its own private beach and pool. Was walking distance to the cable car up to the old town. The breakfast buffet was amazing. I would recommend the private boat tour for an hour where they take you to the grottos etc.

Stayed for 6 days in September 2014 and had a great time. The hotel is of the old school and can be seen as somewhat formal. Although the staff speak English you should try and make the effort to speak some basic Italian as this will help in developing relationships. In particular, Pancrazio and Alberto at the pool were brilliant and were extremely helpful.
Aim for a room with a terrace in the main building with views over the gardens and town with Etna in the distance.
Breakfast is fantastic and great for people watching; alternatively you can have breakfast on your terrace at no extra cost.
On-site there is a pool, gym with sauna & steam room together with beautiful gardens. Plenty of public spaces/terraces which allow for some private time.
Regular free shuttle to sister hotel, Villa St. Andrea on the beach, where lunch on the outside terrace is a must.

We stayed 8 nights at this lovely 5* hotel, a really relaxing visit. One area which does require attention is the restaurant, dinner menu unchanged for every meal. Counter balanced by many good restaurants in the town particularly CINQUE ARCHI and al Giardino.
