      Excellent hotel for a relaxing vacation

      The hotel is located across the road from a public beach. It has a swimming pool in the courtyard. The breakfast was very good and varied, offering fresh fruit juice and yogourt. The room was nice and comfortable, newly furnished. The hotel offers free parking. The area is served by regular buses from Taormina.

      Small friendly hotel near beach and with pool

      A super, small hotel with very friendly staff. Location was super. Quiet area of town but walking distance to nightlife and town. The hotel was small and well kept. All staff were welcoming and took great care of the hotel and guests. Communal areas were clean and tidy. Breakfast was plentiful. We had asked for a gluten-free meal and there were lots of options given-the staff had really gone out of their way. We would highly recommend this hotel to others.
