It was within easy reach of taormina, mount etna and all the other places we wanted to visit..The hotel room overlooked Mount Etna which when dark we could see the volcano spitting lava from the side. Very exciting No nothing at all..for us it was perfect
i like the pool and the view from our appartment
The staff were very friendly. The hotel is comfortable though a bit out of the way but we loved the spacious public areas and the food served in the restaurant was really good.
Large and clean rooms, consistent breakfast, lots of trees around the hotel No wireless internet in the hotel, no possibility to connect my own laptop; there are only two computers in the lobby with paid internet access
very good hotel, well situated, good standard, nice rooms and good swimmingpool Breakfast was oke but variantion of breadproducts could be better
the structure of the hotel is good , the staff not particularly friendly as a 4 stars would be. The room was not cleaned properly for the 5 nights we stayed, The barmen was recycling the beer, the restaurant was very poor buffet style.
We spend lots of time, reading reviews on Taormina's and Naxos's hotels - wanted to choose the best value for money staying in a really comfort hotel. Ceaser was the right choice. Very nice rooms, very nice stuff! Everything is new and clean. We stayed bb, so, have no idea, what kind of lunchs and diners they serv (there are so many nice cafes in Naxos, that we just had no possibility to taste the hotel's restaurant), but breakfast was more or less ok. As far as we understood from the reviews on other sicilian hotels, poor breakfast is quite a common problem on the island (in some 4* hotels no hot dishes for b at all - only musly, cheese and ham), so in Ceasar we have such hot stuff like bacon, sausages, boild eggs and scramble eggs. Very nice choice of coffe for breakfas was also a nice surprise))) The very few minuses of the hotel: a) location (and it's the main reason why so nice hotel costs so unexpensive) - 1,5 km to beach/center of Naxos - they have a free shuttle bus, but we prefered to walk - quite nice way; b) - no vegetables for Breakfast.
very nice hotel,nice spacious lobby and surroundings, hotel bus service a great help,parking excellent.
nice clean room, big enough personnel hasn't invented the art of smiling, really no personnel member will ever smile to you.
Staff very helpfull, facility veru nice. Food good.
Our sea view room was lovely, and breakfast was fairly good. Staff were very helpful. It was almost the end of April and the pool was empty of water, so no swimming. Booked that hotel because of the pool and could have gone somewhere cheaper if we'd known that the pool was not in use! We were offered use of a pool nearby but it's not the same. Our room was lovely, but the mosquitos in it were not! The spray used by staff did not seem to have any effect on them
the room, the breakfast, very nice hotel the parking was horror, the beach is all rocks, too expensive
Very confortable room; staff very friedly; good breakfest; facilities for park, outside the hotel but not far from; good swimingpool. The beach is poor and not very safe for swimming
The location by the sea is superb and the pool is excellent. Bedrooms are of a good size and well appointed. There is an additional charge for using the beach which it is not necessary to pay as the pool is more comfortable for sunbathing.
breakfast was very good, lots of selection rooms were clean and comfortable great for family vacations or people who wish to relax poolside not much to do in giardini naxos large hotels lose on personal touches that smaller hotels offer, like front desk/guest relations
Good personnel, fast service in bar, clean swimming pool High prices for breakfast service, hard stay near the sea as there are stones and entrance (sea shore) to the sea is not covered, no iron in the room
The rooms are top quality and the food is excellent The beach and swimming pool area are too small for the size of hotel. Sunbeds are 4euros per bed per day!
It was quiet recable from everything We had to wait very long to be given the room
The Worst Hotel!!!!
Very nice holiday, very good hotel, territory, beach. Lots of facilities for children
I found your hotel very attractive and will return back in a few days, I would like to inform you that on our last day we were sleeping witth the door locked and at about 3 a.m. a man entered our room and I shouted and he ran away.. I phoned for security but as he went away I asked that this case be forgotten
It was far more than I expected - had a great time
Quality and variety of food. Green and huge territory, beautiful plants. Very convenient for families with children. No teakettle and crockery in the room.
Average copy of Club Med. The place is vast and it helps to hide away from the crowd but the breakfast and dinner is a trauma - so many people...On the positive side, the place is clean and well maintaned. The service is very cold - minimum attention required. Swimming pools are good, archery works, there are some sail boats on the pebble beach but everything is at minimum cost. Few annoying details - you have to pay for a beach umbrella and towels, the beach belongs to resort but there are many strange people around - including those offering glasses, massage or boat trips .
Good facillities Lack of information in English.
Pleasant, spacious grounds that are well kept. Great swimming pools, nice beach. Staff mostly friendly and helpful. Nice family rooms (villas) Being asked to pay Euro 50 'deposit' for switching on tennis court lights at night. Atm cash machine in lobby was out of order for a whole week. Breakfast was acceptable, but virtually the same every day with little variation.
Cozy, quiet, comfortable, good location, good service at the reception. Good choice for those who prefer family vacation close to the beach in a comfortable green park area. Excellent view to Giardini Naxos, Taormina, sea and Etna from the rooms in the main building. I wouldn't recommend this hotel for those who prefer to go out every night. However this is not a problem at all if you rent a car or use a taxi - it takes just 10 minutes to get to Taormina downtown and costs just about 15 euros one way.
Loved the view from the hotel, and the "cave opening" access to the beach. Shuttle service to the city was a plus, would definitely recommend using it as finding parking in the city center is a disaster. disappointed with the closure of bar by the beach due to weather conditions...
The magnificent view. The pool and the beach are just breathtaking. The food does not correspond to the standard of the hotel. Everything appart from the breakfast was a disappointment.
The hotel itself is large but beautiful It's isolated and the few shuttles offered are overbooked. The taxi alternative is very expensive. Finally free parking is very tight and always packed.
Don't be fooled by the 4 stars tag. You really feel like a Movie Star when you'll have breakfast or visit the pool and the beach bar / restaurant. Best hotel I've ever seen to be honest. Beautiful location, excellent staff, a few minuses but it doesn't matter. I'd say visit the hotel if off-season (> 15 sept) and you'll have the w-end of your dreams :) Ask for sea view! Breakfast - it's a question of taste, that's for sure, but I didn't like it. Others might love it, I guess. If you're a normal person, who wants to save a few bucks when possible, don't touch the restaurant. Not prohibitive for sure, but it matches the "luxury" tag of the hotel. You can eat in Naxos or Taormina for example, while also visiting the place.
view at bay and Mount Etna, hotel-bus line to centre of Taormina
We thought the hotel location was excellent with the view of the Straits of Messina and and Ionian Sea. The way the beach and pool areas are set into the cliff is really pretty amazing The AC did not always cool through the night. The staff at the beach only wasn't too friendly
Housekeeping staff wonderful Too much walking up and down as I said above, Not enough hand rails, dangerous for children, and people having to navagate walking to the pool and beach, Not enough shops in the hotel only 2.
Its location and view. Breakfast was the best we had from the 8 hotels we stayed in.
Beautiful location. Rooms are a little dated, but clean. The restaurant is soso. Much better restaurants in town. Very nice gym. Overall a nice hotel.
Location, value for money,facilities,outside bar /lunch restaurant Breakfast had little or no variation,very bad coffee
View the hotel
The views were breathtaking and the staff were lovely. Couldnt do enough. Bedrooms a little dated Could upgrade the rooms in keeping with the stunning location
Very comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. Staff were friendly and helpful. Wonderful views and fabulous gardens. Good location 5 mins walk to town centre.
The most beautiful view ever, poolside fabulous, great service, and helpful staff. Walking distance to sites and shopping. Hope to return. Request ocean view and terrace. Great food (breakfast and lunch til 4 pm poolside). Parking available and assisted by staff.
Great staff, relaxing pool, area lovely breakfast & dining area easy walk to the centre None
Great hotel with beautiful landscaping and pool setting. Staff were very friendly and effiicient and took care of the parking for us. Wonderful breakfast...one of the best on our 3 week trip thru out Sicily. Booked the standard room but would highly recommend upgrading to one with a terrace and balcony (worth the extra euros). I loved this hotel!!! Standard room a little dated compared to the rest of the hotel which was marvelous.
The resort staff provided superior service from check in to departure and true to advertised detail there were stunning views of the sea and Mt. Etna from the restuarant.
Staff is excellent and could not be more helpfull and patient,location perfect just minutes away from via Umberto,food good but I had better. Pool area is not good for children pool too deep and too quite.
excelent hotel with amazing sea veiws & gardens in Toarmino
Bedroom too small x price requested.For lunch only restaurant open Pool- site. Price for in hotel drinks-food exorbitant. Ambient excellent, gardens super.
Perfectly sited for getting into Taormina with stunning views of Etna from a gorgeously positioned garden. A very wonderful building. Everything was ridiculously expensive (even for Taormina!) so we didn't use any facilities other than the room itself and the gym. 9 Euros for a cup of tea; 20 euros for a half bottle of average wine. Rather than stimulate extra revenue from its guests, its policy seems to drive them into the arms of the surrounding businesses.
Location, cortesia dello staff, ottimo servizio e rapporto qualità-prezzo (upgrade gratuito in una splendida suite)
The location is perfect. The building has a nice atmosphere and the service is what can be expected from a hotel in this price range. The room was small for a room in this price range. The food and beverages were unpleasantly expensive.
The facilities for business use were quite poor with limited access to internet & business facilities. in the end I had to go into the town to use the internet facilities
Wonderful hotel in a very historic building that they have preserved extremely well. The location in Taormina is ideal, and the views are fantastic. Lovely garden. The staff are extremely attentive --especially for Sicily where staff training is often so-so. The restaurant, Principe Cerami, is well worth the price and deserves its Michelin rating. Breakfast, the lunch restaurant, and the bar are all very high quality. They will park your car for you and bring it when you need it. This is very useful in Taormina where parking is otherwise difficult.
the perfect hospitality; delightful staff; great pool ; very beautiful surroundings and understated elegance. no
The service was excellent and breakfast very good. The restaurants are excellent but on the expensive side. Sell the house before eating by the pool. The cost of extras is very high, the rooms and general decor very tired with cheap rather nasty furniture in the rooms, the pool is right on an exit route out of town so is noisy. Good hotel that's seen its best years.
Beautiful, tastefully appointed hotel. Ultra modern accommodations in a Sicillian village that blossoms with antiquity. The restaurant is fine, but visitors are in the center of a town where one cannot find a bad meal; only, as Rick Steves phrases it, better.
Very comfortable, delightful staff, close to shops and sights. I am returning for a night at the end of the month. I liked everything
Everything We called the hotel for directions from the road. Had they told us that they were the only modern looking hotel on the mountain , right after you pass through the main square and that it had a glass front on the right not the left we would have saved over an hour trying to find the place.
Very modern and stylish hotel, nice location, in walking distance to pedestrian zone Very small rooms
The hotel is brand new. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is really helpful. If one arrives by car, it is advisable to book a parking place in advance.
Well-designed boutique hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Restaurant is an undiscovered jewel. Self-parking facility is non-existent at the hotel. Parking in the garage is expensive.
Superb hotel overall .Great location .Spotlessly clean. Very friendly and helpful staff, Great breakfast freshly cooked to your requirements.. Size of the balconies.
Chic hotel with very friendly staff ( something that Italian/Scilian hotel staff are not noted for ) Nothing was too much trouble, not only for us but for all guests some of which were very demanding.
The staff were very helpful and friendly The food was very expensive. "Ceasar's Salad" comprising Lettuce ,sauce and a few croutons was €17.A very high standard of food was available in any of the restaurants locally for half the price. The Hotel lacked athmosphere as there were only a handful of people staying there the week we were there.
The view to Isola Bella was amazing. Really nice continental buffet breakfast. Family with kids on the next room, earplugs necessary when having siesta
The beachside location was fantastic with beautiful panoramic views over Isolabella Beach. The hotel is far enough away from the town crowds, but close enough to the action when required - a short 80m walk to the fenicular. The staff are brilliant - anticipating our every need. The breakfast food was plentiful, and the pastries divine. There is a rail line below, however the hotel sliding doors are double glazed, so couldn't hear it.. and I am a very light sleeper. There are a couple of restaurants within 50m of hotel, or you can order in pizza for a relaxing night. It is definitely a value for money hotel. I would not hesitate to stay again. I highly recommend this hotel.
Beautiful, clean, new hotel. Great staff. Wonderful breakfast.
everything was spot on. The staff fell over backwards to assist. a bit pricey
Professional staff resolved problem with the A/C by changing rooms for us when hotel was fully booked.
Friendly, helpful staff -- nothing seems too much trouble. Hotel seems well-appointed, well-maintained, well-cleaned.
The views of Isola Bella were stunning. The weather was atrocious and there was nothing to do indoors. A pool or gym would have been good.
Location, views. Taormina city
Staff were excellent. Breakfast selection very good. Pity there was no dining room for evening meals.
Beautiful situated, great views!! Walking distance to cable car, good resrtaurants nearby, spacious rooms, big lovely beds ( great matrass ) and a view to die for....! Very helpfull and friendly staff.
Beatiful views over the Bay, location within 5 mins walking of centre, lovely pool, friendly staff. Cost of Car Parking 8 euros per day.
Very well run hotel, great staff, fantastic views, walking distance to town centre. Partition walls between rooms are to light, and the hill out of the hotel was very steep.
The location was great and we had a room with wonderful views. The breakfast was excellent and the choices changed each day. It was only a short walk to the old town and the cable car. Car parking was great - very hard to get in Taormina. The only entrance and exit was down a very very steep circular driveway. Once you had climbed that the rest was easy.
very nice location, in the city up on the mountain, nice view. But shower room must be refurbiched.
Accessibility to town,beautiful pool,well appointed room,hotel fit out with good quality paintings and furniture.Room overlooking the pool and the view to the sea.In all an excellent place to stay They could probably increse the output of the air conditionining.Difficult to keep room cool in hot summer.
The location was great; overlooking the coastline and only a few minutes walk from the heart of Taormina.
Very convenient to bus station, cable car and Taormina town. Pool area very nice as was bar balcony, with a nice view. Public areas very attractive. Free use of internet computer an advantage
Its proximity to the town and the views were spectacular. Gardens were well done Not really, we were there off season and the pool was shut, I suppose this was understandable
Modern, comfortable, ideal, located with the attentive intelligent stuff, big rooms, easy to come to the center of Taormina and to the see. Nothing
We stayed in junior suit with a perfect view of Etna and sea; the terrace was perfect..
Location! I'd say is not a 4 stars hotel as advertised!
The staff were polite and the breakfast was pretty decent. The views from the hotel of Etna and the sea were stunning. This should not be a four star hotel. We paid extra for a 'suite' but arrived to find a small room with a large balcony with a glass ceiling (sun bathing in a green house) - very basic (no mini bar, sky sport TV etc..) The website states beach & pool facilities are at the "Paradise Beach Club in Letojanni at about 10 minutes distance from the hotel". This is a lie. The beach is about 25 minutes by car alone!! If you dont drive then you can get the free hotel minibus. We did this three times and each time it arrived about 20/30 minutes late to collect us. From leaving our room to getting to the hotel pool took about 1 hour!! Avoid this hotel.
the staff attitude -
The hotel has a pleasant home-like feeling and an excellent location. At breakfast time one can enjoy the view of Mt.Etna from the rooftop terrace. Around the corner are the Public Gardens (Giardino Pubblico), very convenient for a walk in the well tended park, and again with view of Mt.Etna and the sea. At the same time only a few minutes walk away from the main corso. English speakers are well served at the front desk. We were very happy with our choice of accommodation!
We had a great view from our room that was wonderful to see each morning.
very old bed. small bathroom
It was very centrally located within Taormina enabling easy access to various bars and restaurants. It also offered superb panoramic views of the sea and mt Etna. Staff were very firndly and helpful. Out dated decor of rooms and reception/ lounge area of hotel
not a thing everything,the rooms were dirty dust everywhere, windows were filthy,dont think they had ever been used, excuse for an air conditioning unit that was full of bug and germ bearing dust, bathroom was awful the whole place had a seady air about it and I would not put my dog in it if it were a kennal
The room was good, a little old but quaint. It was clean and quite large. The hotel is also old but typical of Taormina. The staff were very polite and helpful. It was quiet and the view from my room beautiful. Breakfast was also very good and the view from the restaurant is of Naxos and Etna. I think it just needs some TLC
The seaview Breakfast was poor. The croissants were very plain. In the advert they say that the hotel has its own parking when in fact they have no reserved parking. They did not inform us that to park nearby the hotel, we had to pay. Hotel staff is not helpful
Location near beach Hotel rated as 4 star, but at least one star too much. Breakfast only available until 9:30 and all services such as gym and pool had to be paid for. Parking facility in surroundings very limited.
we like the place, the room, it was near to taurmina ,
The standard of cleanliness in the room was excellent. The view of the sea from the balcony was appreciated. Would have appreciated tea and coffe making facilities - just a kettle would have been good. I used the sun lounger on the roof and was locked on the roof when someone closed the door(hotel staff).this is dangerous and should be attended to. Luckily I knew someone who was in a nearby village who phoned the hotel to inform them - there was no apology. The breakfast would have been better if there had been a selection of fresh fruit and cheeses. A discount for guests for using pool and spa facilities would have been appreciated, too.
The booking was made by my friend Mr S. Sciannaca, who has used already your services. We like the hotel and its position.
Big room It is not 4 star hotel. Max 3.
The friendly staff and the spa, the room was very clean and bedding changed everyday. The resturant staff were also a credit to the hotel. No
good localization close to the beautiful Taormina Breakfast. If you are not in the organized group you have to be hurry to eat anything. We stayed 7 days and every day was the same to the eat and cold !!! Breakfast is till 9.30 but every day 8.30 service started to clean. 9.00 am breakfast finished. Watch out for the pictures from the hotel. Real is different. Swimming pool (you have to pay for this). And service people in the swimming pool unpleasent. Air condition not working and many insects in the room. This hotel deserve for 2 stars but price is to high.
Good location - very close to the beach. Good staff - speak english. Dirty plates, glasses, cups, table-cloth!!!! I received terrible burn from medusa which didn't close up (10 days after!!!) and the hotel didn't alarm about medusas their visitors!
location, sea view, spacious room The hotel should not be a 4 star. The rooms were big but settings were old requiring renovation especially bathroom. There were insects in the bathroom. Breakfast hours were short and they already started to clean breakfast at 9am, coffee was very bad, and meals that should be hot were cold.
Idyllic place. The location is fantastic, right on the edge of a small bay with a miniature island attached to the shore by a small sand bar. The hotel opened this year so everything is brand new a very beautifully done. In addition is relatively not that expensive compared to other top hotels in Sicily. I felt it was worth the money. As its perched on an incline the carpark is sometimes tricky to maneuvuor around especially if its nearly full. This is typical of such places not just this hotel.
Having a great view of the ocean and isola bella is priceless. b/c many of the rooms are stand alone bungalows, insects creep into the room which may be annoying for some guests.
Location is great, excellent views. The bungalo was very small and had no "garden" as was advertised and shown on the photos. Instead, it had a little plastic desk with two chairs located by the side road, with an angled seaview. Bungalo surroundings vary from one another and you may not get the one as per your expectations. Had to pay extra money to move to a suite because "no other bungalos were available"
The location is great. Beautiful views on Isola Bella. It took long to check-in and the staff, although very willing, was not very efficient/professional. Had to ask multiple times for things.
Very helpful staff; unusual, well designed room accomodation; lovely outlook from the beach to La Bella Isola An overpriced winelist; being pestered by itinerants on the beach offering massage every few minutes (although I'm not sure what the hotel can do about this)
Nice view from the room, very close to Taormine and direct access to the beach. Prices are high for a low season period.
Staff really made this a memorable holiday. Food and service excellent Could do with a few renovations, but this also adds to the charm
Friendly & Helpful staff, nice beach, great views from balcony. Internet access was expensive , €10 per hour.
The hotel room facing the beach, size of the room, the food the shower, there wasn't a real bath tub to stand in whilst taking a shower
The hotel has an old world charm, good size clean rooms. Towels and Chairs provided each day on the beach. Not far from cabelcar which takes you up to the center of Taormina. Evening is boring if you do not go into the city.
The room was spacious and clean and I had an excellent sea view. Breakfast was delicious.The staff was friendly and helpful. No.
Nice restaurant, nice beach Missing water kettle in the room, water stay in bathroom after shower
the hotel was clean and the staff were nice and friendly. the location and the buffet breakfast the bar was hopeless
Hotel staf and all services were excellent No.
Superb view, helpful staff, clean and comfortable room
