We stayed at the apartment which is located 1?block from the hotel. Room was huge and had a kitchen. beautiful view from the terrace. New bathroom. Staff was very helpful and accomodating ( early breakfast was offered on the day of our departure) Hotel is arranging pick up/ drop off at the beach which was very convenient because parking at the beaches is not easy. Hotel is located close to the town and you could walk to the town trough public garden which us beautiful. Breakfast was good. We did not have breakfast included in the price but upon inquiring about the cost of breakfast we received call that it will be complimentary which was very nice. Definitely I would recommend to choose apartment over the main hotel building. Pool was small.
This is one of the dreamiest hotels we have ever stayed in, and we travel a lot.
Every detail, every piece of art, the gardens, the view, the staff.
It has history and romance and everything is done in perfect taste.
It is worth the trip to Taormina just to stay at San Domenico Palace Hotel.
We had some of the best views of any hotel in Sicily and the staff were incredibly helpful booking excursions. Sadly we were in Sicily with bad weather but they helped us with lovely trips so it didn't matter. Would highly recommend this hotel.
"Nice hotel but rather old fashioned & too few staf"
Hotel was fine; staff were stretched and not very attentive. Location was reasonable - good if you have a car but otherwise a 20 min walk to the bus terminus. When we stayed at the hotel it had an 'end of season feel' about it and only had a skeleton staff which was a shame.
This hotel is located in a building from 1904, at the end of Taormina's main street and benefits from a charming view over …More
We spent ten nights at La Plage in September 2015.
The rooms are comfortable and clean with very decent sized beds. The bungalows look especially sizeable with small private gardens.
The breakfast is plentiful and in a lovely setting. Perhaps a few more parasols are needed as it can be quite hot first thing in the morning. The staff at breakfast are friendly and the service is prompt.
The beach itself is beautiful and the warm crystal clear and clean. The hotel is very close to the nature reserve of Isola Bella.
There is also decent scuba diving with the Nike diving centre. The staff at Nike are very friendly and professional indeed and speak French , English and Spanish.
The beach staff are helpful , but the music at the beach bar could be a little quieter.
The spa appears to be run separately from the hotel and is small , with only a small jacuzzi and steam room which were not hot. The remainder is a treatment room.
We spent two nights at the hotel and we have no complaints. The room was very nice, new modern furniture and all the hotel seems to have had a recent remodeling. It feels very fresh and new. Breakfast was included and it was very nice. The beach is right across the street. If you want to go to Taormina you can take the steps ( a 35 minute arduous uphill walk) or take a bus. The cable car that used to take you to Taormina was under repair. We paid a little more to have the oceanfront balcony room and the view was absolutely stunning. Take a look at my picture. I would highly recommend this hotel. For about $100 we had a very nice, I would call it even luxurious accommodation. I would stay again if visiting Taormina.

A balcony setting on Mount Tauro with a sweeping view of Sicily’s coastline and Mount Etna gives Taormina its lasting appeal. It is Sicily’s only truly international resort, much-favoured by celebrities. The old quarter’s steep, narrow alleys are filled with window boxes and painted pottery, and best explored on foot. Main sights are the classical remains and Renaissance palaces. The Greco-Roman theatre is still used for concerts and festivals.
