Some TLC needed
Amazing location. Hotel is a little outdated and was surprised to find the rooms extremely dusty and uncared for.

We stayed one night - the hotel is very clean, comfortable; staff is very helpful and recommended a great restaurant for our family to enjoy a beautiful evening with delicious food in a garden-setting place. Thank you so much! Breakfast is great with lots of choices and stunning view.

4/10 Fair

Could have been grand but for the reception staff
This hotel is situated very well and the views are excellent. However, the reception/lobby and staff are so cold and grouchy. You do not feel welcome. Breakfast was so-so, the staff serving breakfast were friendly. The cleaners did the bathroom only and skipped cleaning the bedroom, including coffee cups etc. Room amenities are stuck in the 1980s: faucets, shower, electrical outlets, AC control are very outdated. Wi-Fi worked well, which was saving grace.

Great location, stunning views but v steep climb up and down to pool. Noise from neighbouring rooms (you can hear bathroom plumbing!) Hotel decor rather “tired” - would have liked tea/coffee making facilities in room. Staff v pleasant and helpful. Plentiful varied breakfast with beautiful vista. Town is lovely - loads of great bars and restaurants. We’d love to go back to Sicily.

The daily staff ( cleaning lady and breakfast team) were lovely. The location is close to the historical area of Taomina and the view from our balcony was quite special too. The hotel is a little dated and there was only one power point suitable to charge our devices.
