Dont eat there!
Not a 4 stars hotel. I am ok with all these outdated staf in the room. Mostly i had issues with their restaurant dinner! I do expect better service for 4 star restaurant. Worst dinner I had in Sicily. I had to pour myself my wine . People around me , who came after me, left and I was still waiting for secondary. Ignorance. I had to talk to few people before I finally for some service there. Food wasnt good as well. Totally screwed up my evening. Eat in town!

OK value for the money
Very good service the first days, but not so good the last days of our trip. The service and food at the hotel restaurant was not very good, but the staff is very friendly overall. For the pool: not very family friendly as it is not possible to stand anywhere in the pool, not suitable for kids. The location of the hotel was super and it is a nice place to stay overall.

Former greatness, now just worn down
You can tell this hotel at one point we're a very nice and high end hotel. But now... The hotel is very worn down, and the interior is from the early 90s. Our room had clear signs of a water damage in the ceiling. The check in experience was flawless, however the check out was not. It took almost 30 minutes in queue for us to leave the key and pay the city tax... Not good enough. Breakfast was... Meh. A lot of stuff but breads were stale. Would not stay again.

Great Pool and Patios
Hotel Ariston’s location is perfect for walking the loop around Taormina, including the enchanting public garden with its panoramic ocean view and quirky follies of traditional houses. The buffet breakfast is varied and complete, and the pool and patios are delightful. Parking is nearly, but driving is a challenge in the narrow, cobblestone streets. Overall, this traditional style hotel is a good value in a fun city. Staff is helpful and friendly.
