Welcome to the indisputable charms of the Isola Bella Hotel, which is in a wonderful spot overlooking its namesake - a fairytale island often referred to as the Pearl in the Ionian Sea. You can look forward to all the hospitality of a typical Sicilian hotel along with the kind of modern comforts to satisfy international travellers who appreciate comfort, affordability and a great location!

You will find yourself just a stone's throw from the beach and the famous Lido Copacabana when you check in to this value-for-money 3 star hotel Taormina, and a convenient shuttle service gets you to the warm sands in no time at all. It's hard to come by a more picturesque location than this pretty bay island, which has characteristic rocky beaches and exotic Mediterranean vegetation, and is home to several species of birds and lizards. Taormina is an enchanting hillside town on the east coast of Sicily and has a fascinating historical centre and lively city centre, both easily reached thanks to the cable car station which is walking distance away.

Culture vultures will certainly want to head to the famous Greek Theatre and one of the regular artistic representations performed during the summer time. With all these attractions it's not hard to see why this coastal resort draws so many summer visitors, but if you want a change of scenery, this affordable hotel is near both Giardini Naxos and Letojanni, two popular resorts less than 5 km (3 miles) away, and offering a host of tourist delights!

Lazy beach life on your doorstep!

These modern vacation rentals in the Messina region certainly don't scrimp on quality, and you can expect premier comforts and attention to detail throughout your stay. When you are not sunning yourself at the Lido Copacabana, enjoy the on-site facilities at your disposal. Head to the snack bar for starters, with its tempting stock of chilled drinks, ice cream and famous Sicilian granite to cool you down in the midday sun. Afterwards why not succumb to the yummy temptations of the typical regional and local dishes on the shady restaurant terrace facing the sparkling sea? Pure heaven!

Breathtaking views!

Morning gets off to a sunny start in the breakfast room, where panoramic sea views accompany you as you tuck into your cappuccino and pastries. The hotel boasts a generous swimming pool with panoramic vistas, and surrounded by orange and lemon trees overlooking the bay. For guests wishing to reconnect with the outside world during their visit, then complimentary wireless Internet access will be a much-appreciated perk, as well as the handy Internet point. Your search for the ultimate in family holiday accommodation Mazzarò is over.

The Isola Bella Hotel invites you to leave your worries behind and embrace life the Sicilian way. The property offers convenient amenities such as luggage storage, a computer station and complimentary beach shuttle. From your morning coffee to your final nightcap, you have the perfect holiday at your fingertips!

I was mostly pleased to find a single room at all, and at what is for Taormina a good price. Isola Bella was perfectly nice, staff pleasant, and the view was indeed lovely and makes up for a lot (think twice if you're not offered a room with a view; tho' the terrace for breakfast and bar has it too). The room was functional, clean, etc. but bathroom very cramped, including a shower that was so small i couldn't put on shower gel without turning the water off and opening the door. And the dorr didn't seem entirely happy about staying closed. In a way, as a single traveller, i'm not really knocking it, the best thing was, as i say, that they had a single room at all, and one with the celebrated view. A couple of transport infos: I arrived by bus etc., which was a good thing, parking is a problem. There is a bus that runs from the railway station and vice versa, in fact more than one, tho' i did wait an hour for one that didn't come, good job I had allowed plenty of time. Or you can get the bus to the Taormina bus station and come down on the cable car, or the other way (you ought to do that at least once, and i say that as someone who really doesn't like heights); tho' actually a taxi isn't an entirely daft idea; it's not so far but definitely too far to walk in any heat.

Nice place and nice location. Quite close to the beach and friendly and helpful staff. However the beds are hard and uncomfortable, and every morning you wake up to something sounding like them redecorating the place, meaning very bad sound insulation between the rooms.

Our stay at this hotel was a memorable one! Location is breath-taking! When we saw the room, I was not impressed as it is old-fashioned, but once you open the balcony door and see the view, well, it makes up for everything! Just make sure to book a room with a view, its worthed the little bit extra you pay! Breakfast is excellent! Good choice of food, with freshly-baked cakes! Staff is very helpful and fiendly, cannot complain! Very close to the funivia (cable car), just 300m, which takes you straight to the centre of taormina, whilst enjoying the breath-taking views underneath! Decor of hotel is classic and could use an upgrade, but hotel is clean, staff is friendly, breakfast excellent, location spectacular, so YES, i d definetely recommend this hotel! Thanks for a wonderful stay xxx

Excellent hotel and wonderful view. Near restaurants. Very good breakfast. One criticism - very little tourist advice on Etna etc. We speak Spanish and can understand Italian fairly well but Receptionist was not able to answer our questions and didn't offer any advice.

Staff was very friendly and real italian. The view is great. It could be a very nice place but it needs a serious update. The pool also could be wonderfull if there wasn't this view on the hotel roof with all the airconditioning staff that makes a tremendous noise.

The hotel was pricey for the size of the room and the room had a damp smell to it. It was directly across the street from the beach but you had to walk a quarter of a mile along the road and then down over 100 steps to get to the beach.

Te world his hotel has one of the best views in the world if you take a room with a view.The only noticeable noise at night was that of the sea on the rocks and beach below. The breakfast was good and the staff extremely friendly and polite. Free internet was a bonus. The beach in front of the hotel is not ideal for swimming, but the hotel has a large pool.

This was our first time in this hotel. Accomodations are fairly comfortable, and the location is good, with a beautiful panorama and a sea view. Rooms are quite noisy, due to the fact that hotel is located in front of a road and a railway.

The hotel is lovely, but basic. The views from the front are well worth the extra the only drawback is the road below which is busy. But it soon becomes background noise. There's is also a train track that runs along the coast, past all of the hotels in this area so there's no escaping it, but the trains are very infrequent. The staff are friendly and helpful but with very little english, however can cope with any usual enquiries. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would stay again. The clientele are young and older couples and families. It's about a 5 minute walk into the cable car to Taormina but worth it. However I wouldn't recommend it for young children as there are no footpaths and the drivers are typically italian.
