    Beautiful views of Etna and Taormina Bay. Internal decor exceptional - high quality antique furniture and curios. Very friendly and helpful staff.

    Road up to Castelmina where Hotel is situated is narrow, winding and tortuous on steep hillside with parked cars causing obstruction

    A very good view

    The swimming pool closed too early for this time of the year (29-6-2011). The white wine they serve in de restaurant is too old. The batroom smelled awfull.

    Everything ... the friendly and helpful staff, the comfortable, elegant accommodations, the lovely breakfasts and views from the balcony, the proximity to Castlemola (walking) and Taormina (free shuttle), etc., etc.

    Nothing ... except that we wished for more days there.

    The spectacular views. The friendly reception staff.

    The hotel manager. This man needs to take a course in management as he has an inability to listen to people. We had a few issues with our room and rather than listen to our concerns, the man launched into a defensive tirade of excuses and jabbered on about his own experience in other hotels by way of justifying the elements of his hotel that are not fit for purpose considering their charges. The only thing he managed successfully was to talk over me while I tried to get my points across! This hotel has fantastic views, but is not worthy of 4-stars. They have cheap token gym equipment (not plugged in) to cynically bump up their spec, the bathroom shower is tiny, the sound proofing in the rooms is scant, the breakfast poor and we were promised an upgrade which we never received. All in all. We came away feeling ripped off. Such a shame, because it has potential to be a really good hotel. It just needs a little investment or a price that better reflects the experience. And of course a much better class of manager!

    The view from our balcony of Mt Etna was stunning. We had actually booked a classic room and were upgraded on arrival so that was an added bonus. The setting on the edge of this very authentic and friendly village, Castelmola was a joy. We ate there most nights and wandered the little streets at night. The staff were most courteous and helpful throughout the stay.We really went to relax and recharge and this was the perfect place to do so.The swimming pool was beautifully maintained and serviced with very helpful staff.The local bus service to Taormina was invaluable and quite an experience around mainly hairpin bends negotiated by skilled drivers, we used it often to connect with .the cable car to Mazzaro and Spisone beaches This really is a mountain retreat away from the chaos of Taormina.

    The only thing we have to complain about is the tea and coffee in the mornings which came from a vending machine and was luke warm which was a shame as the breakfast itself was lovely, something for everyone, local fruits in salad, breads, criossants, scramble eggs ,juices. Please do something about this... Very odd in contrast to everything else about this hotel

    The position of the hotel gave wonderful views of Mt. Etna. Staff were friendly and helpful at all times. A short walk to local village with a good choice of evening dining or a short trip by car/ hotel shuttle bus to the lovely result of Taormina.

    The shuttle bus returns from Taormina at around 9.30pm which is early as dining starts late in Sicily, however taxis are available. If the cost of parking was included it would be a nice gesture especially at this standard of hotel.

    Location was dramatic - good views over the valley to Mt Etna, and at the base of a charming town called Castelmola overlooking Taormina and the sea. Very friendly woman at the front desk with lots of tips for sightseeing. Lovely property albeit slightly dated. Castel ruins at the top of Castelmola is an amazing and scenic lookout.

    Swimming pool was unheated and freezing cold - hotel location is on very steep hill with a steep walk to Castelmola, so people without mobility would be limited in enjoying the full spectrum of the location. Restaurant facilities pretty limited, but town offers a few options.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    The hotel has a spectacular location up above the hustle and bustle of Taormina with incredible views of Mt. Etna. We had two rooms that opened out on a terrace with Mt. Etna in the distance. We found a nice restaurant in the little town of Casteloma within walking distance of the hotel. This area felt somewhat less touristy than Taormina itself and was certainly much more quiet, though we enjoyed walking around Taormina as well. The rooms were comfortable and quiet. We enjoyed our stay and would go back.

    Our room was very comfortable and had a balcony with a fabulous view of Mount Etna. The staff were always courteous and helpful. We enjoyed the pool and breakfast was fine, with lots of choices.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    The hotel has shutle free bus service to/ from Taormina. Nice view of Mt. Etna, but no vie of the sea. Swiming pool is nice. The village of Castelmola where this hotel locates is also nice, it is small and quiet.
