Location is great on the edge of the centre and great views over the bay.
Etna views do get the noise from the main road if you have the window open.
Rooms were ok and clean ish. Cups were not replaced for the whole 10 days stay. There was dust in the corners of the room. The s

The hotel location is stunning, commanding a magnificent view of Etna and the coastline. It is also just a short stroll to the vibrant Corso Umberto with its myriad of shops and restaurants and a little further to the Greek Theatre. Giuseppe on reception was exceptionally helpful

Kind guest, we thank you for the opinions expressed on your stay. However, I feel obliged to inform you that the hotel has a private parking with valet service and all customers arriving by car are promptly informed of this. In October, the lidos services are concluded not by the will of the private lidos and the hotel but for reasons related to the weather. As for the private party, nothing should have caused any trouble because the lounges of the hotel, along with the outdoor spaces were not at all precluded. It is also true that the hotel's gardens are very big and in fact the Excelsior Park is the largest Sicilian Mediterranean park in Taormina, second only to the public garden. The entire staff would like to thank you for the kind words addressed to their. Best regards Rosella Castorina Ponte GM Excelsior Palace Hotel Taormina

Dear Customer of the Riviera, in thanking you for the review, for the opinion about the hotel in which you stayed, we would like to specify that the selection of fresh fruit concerns: pineapple, yellow melon, oranges, pears, apples, grapes. Our choices are always linked to seasonality and freshness of food and to zero kilometer, as unfortunately he could not appreciate. The freshest jams, fresh orange juices, almond milk and dried fruit varieties will have escaped her, hand made pastries and cakes, Sicilian meats and cheeses and fresh vegetables and Granita!! The bread is the local bread of Castelmola, which you obviously did not appreciate, but if you had communicated it we would have procured the classic white bread that you find anywhere in the world. We like to offer Sicilian food and wine,in fact, we offer free drink, Sicilian sparkling wine for breakfast If he had indicated his cooking preferences, we would have certainly adapted. Sometimes it takes very little, just talk a little more with hotel metre, Sicily is all to be discovered with the right readiness to understand it. Best regards Rosella Castorina Ponte GM Excelsior Palace Hotel Taormina
