This was our first visit to Taormina and we were delighted with our choice of hotel. The hotel is close to a small beach, a short walk to Isola Bella and an even shorter one to the cable car which will whisk you up to the main town in a matter of minutes. We were there for 7 nights on...

We booked this week through Thomson fairly last minute. We had always wanted to go to Sicily. We were met at the airport by a chauffeur driving a Mercedes. We were expecting it to be a coach so we're pleasantly surprised. On arrival at the hotel, we were greeted warmly by Christina at the desk. She gave us lots of...

This hotel has a family-run feel about it: clean, efficient, with helpful staff and simple services. It is a world away from the modern giants, and this is a generally a good thing (except for not having wifi in the rooms - limited to around reception only!). Our room was spacious enough but had single beds and dark wooden furniture,...

We had a great week at the Ipanema. The hotel is situated on Taormina Mare beach area. Our room, which was on the fifth floor had a fabulous view over the harbour. The room was a little on the small side, but had enough wardrobe space, a lovely balcony, a walk-in shower, a minibar/fridge and twin beds, which are pushed...

We were a bit apprehensive of our holiday in Taormina , but upon arrival at the airport in Catania every thing was just perfect . We were met in the arrivals by the Thompson rep who directed us to her associates outside where upon introducing ourselves we were shown to our car to take us to the hotel which is...

“Follow them, they know where they are going”, these were the instructions to the other hotel guests after alighting the transfer coach from Catania airport.  I had just mentioned to the young, and eager, Thomson’s rep that my wife and I had stayed in the Ipanema Hotel the year before, which then saved him the job of guiding everyone the...

The hotel could do with some refurbishment but the staff are a delight. Mario seems to be everywhere and do everything, he is excellent. The reception staff are helpful and try to help with any information you need. Staff in the restaurant are all good, as are the cleaners. We stayed four days at this hotel and were very sorry...
