        Clean and beautiful hotel. Spacey room but was a suite. Breakfast formula not very modern.

        What they call their swimming pool and private beach is a 20 minutes car trip. Shuttle doesn't exist. Foresee two taxi fares for 40 euros total. Beach club is not private at all. Shared with many other low class hotels. Not nice at all compared to hotel. Club had not enough towels or even diet coke in house to serve drinks (paid drinks) on a saturday...

        Shopping, beach, tours

        Our departure flight left Catania at 10.30 PM so we would have liked to go to the beach that day before going to the airport. However, check out time was 12 noon. So to do this we would have had to to use a room to shower. However, this was not available.

        The staff were excellent and extremely friendly, the Junior suite was very nice too. The location was good but did not have any views.

        For a 5 star hotel, it didnt have a pool, spa facilities or a gym, it did not have any views to talk of, and the breakfast was very limited, but of good quality. The restaurant was not what I would expect, in terms of layout, but I did not try the food so I cannot comment.

      • Family with children

        The rooms were absolutely beautiful and very spacious. Every detail you could think of was provided just as the other reviewers have mentioned. The room did not have a sea view, but the views were still lovely. And the rooftop provided a beautiful view of the sea, Mt. Etna, and the lovely village. We loved this hotel and would definitely stay here again when returning to Taormina. We were fortunate to visit Taormina before it is reportedly over-run with tourists and we loved it. It was our favorite city among our stays in Cefalu, Taormina, Siracusa, and Palermo.

        Our only complaint would be that the hotel could perhaps do a better job of noting that it is located in a pedestrian-only area and you can not drive to it. There is no signage for this hotel when arriving by car, although many other hotels are called out on city signs. We had a very difficult time finding it, but it was worth it when we finally did.

        good location in middle of town, beautiful decor. we drove to the nearest parking garage (about 5 minutes walk away) and hotel staff came to meet us and helped with our luggage.

        The location of El Jebel was fantastic! Everything was an easy walk from the hotel, only a few steps from Corso Umberto, yet it was peaceful and quiet. The room was large, extremely well appointed and very comfortable. Marco and staff were friendly and of great assistance. Tip - take a taxi if arriving by train; the station is quite a distance from the hotel.

        The breakfast could be improved.

      • Older travelers

        Location is execellent, very helpfull front desk and rooms contain all necessary luxuries.

        The air conditioing system makes an incredible noise. Intermittantly comes on and off every few minutes and, when on, it sounds like a hurricane. Can't turn it off - even if you remove power from the room. External floodlights problem at night if you like a dark room. They light up your room, even though drapes are drawn.

        The staff at the hotel was outstanding. They made us feel special and well cared for. They made our trip very enjoyable

        Hotel needs a spa. Breakfast was very limited and same choices everyday

        The room and the staff were terrific

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The hotel was luxuriously appointed, spotlessly clean and the staff very courteous, attentive and friendly. The interior design was beautiful and cleverly executed with many attractive features. It was positioned within walking distance of shops, restaurants and historical sights.

        The roof terrace was disappointingly small with few sunbeds and parasols. There was a very noisy air conditioning unit within a few metres of the sunbeds. Due to the lack of a swimming pool and balcony this was a problem for relaxation. In hotels literature there was a beach club advertised but no mention that it would not open until the 1st June. As we arrived on the 28.05.10 this was a disappointment. The beach club was clean with good facilities and friendly staff, but as it was shared with a 3 star establishment was a little mediocre for a 5 star luxury hotel.

      • Couple
        9.2

        Attention to detail, nothing was to much trouble.

        Lack of balcony would be our only grumble, it didn't spoil our stay but would think twice about going back because of that.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        There was no warning or information about how to reach the hotel. It is stressful enough when one is in a foreign country and cannot speak the language, but it is quite another thing not to be able to ask for directions. Not having directions, very clear directions, is unacceptable!

      • Couple
        10.0

        This hotel is very centrally located and with only 10 bedrooms is very much a luxury, boutique hotel and it shows in everything - service, decor, food etc. Excellent.

        This was a gorgeous boutique hotel in a fantastic location in the old town. The staff were amazing and could not do enough to help. Everyone was so kind and thoughtful. The decor of the hotel is just wonderful. It was a great hotel experience.
