Fodor's Review

On the edge of the old quarter, overlooking the lovely public gardens and facing the sea, this hotel is not as well known as some of its neighbors, despite its 100-year history. But with its antique furnishings, paintings, and Persian rugs, the views of Etna from many rooms, delightful service, and a good rooftop restaurant, it's only a matter of time. Proprietor Salvatore Martorana will gladly share stories of Taormina in Goethe's day over an aperitivo (aperitif). A regular free shuttle bus service runs to the hotel's aptly named Paradise Beach Club between June and mid-October (though beware that it gets overcrowded quickly) and guests can use the nearby tennis courts (55 minutes play time daily, no charge).
