As with all Belmond hotels, fantastic rooms, food and a beautiful hotel. What sets this apart however is the service which was superb. We travelled with our 6 month old and they couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. The hotel is in a great location with a fantastic view of etna. Would recommend having a drink in the bar...

Went for a nice aperitivo at the terrace first, enjoying the stunning Taormina scenery. Degustation menu was simply perfect, as well as the service. Pricey but certainly worthwhile. Would certainly come back.

I and my wife lived in Nacos but also visited Taormina during our stay at the beautiful Sicily. This is a very good hotel with perfect location. Some rooms have sea views and the hotel has the classic "Grand Hotel" feeling. A fantastic hotel if you want to stay in Taormina! Mats Samaras, Stockholm, Sweden

I was pretty excited to stay in this hotel based on the photos I saw online, and I must say I wasn't disappointed.

We stayed at this hotel at least 4 times and no doubt it's one of our favourite places. We always feel like home there. End of September-October is probably the best time to visit as not many tourists around and weather is not baking hot. Location, views, service, people, atmosphere, food are great there.

Stayed for 4 nights with family in two suites towards the end of last year, was particularly lucky with the weather. Hotel is exceptional and breakfast an absolute delight ! Drinks ie can be slightly on the expensive side, however this hotel for beauty and location makes it well worthy. Would definitely recommend.
