    Lovely stay in Taormina
    Beautiful hotel with great sea views. From the moment you arrive guests services by staff are excellent. Location is a little further from city center, but a free shuttle service is offered. Our room was lovely with a Jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. Breakfast is wonderful. Parking is available for a daily fee. Highly recommend this hotel.
