Our children bought us a hotel voucher for Christmas; this was the most Southerly hotel (Europe-wise) that would accept said voucher.
Hadn't been to Sicily before so was excited about the location; was a bit ambivalent about the hotel but it was 'free' so no great concerns. Had a few email exchanges with the wonderful Maya and felt confident that 'arrangements' would be in place.
Initial impressions were of the level 'perfectly OK'. Room was OK, bathroom was OK - balcony and view were absolutely fabulous.
Breakfast was simple buffet but more than adequate - brilliant views again from the dining room.
Visited the pool area and the 'sun deck' on the 5th floor (chasing the sun) - both absolutely fine.
Arranged to check-out early on the Sunday to get our flights - no problem whatsoever in getting coffee and croissants to be available.
The key thing for us was that we were completely bowled over by the beauty of Taormina; so much history, so much to do. We wanted to be out from early morning to late at night so spent very few minutes actually awake in the hotel - to this end, why pay for a host of amenities that you don't use?
This is a genuine 3* but in an ideal location - as such it is incredible VFM. We will definitely return to Taormina and see no reason for not staying at President Splendid again.
