Beautiful town,but the hotel was located in Messina so , we must pay every time to go up in the ??.Isola Bella beach is full of small stones be aware of this -There are other beaches around it with sand but access is not easy .Is expensive to shop in Taormina ,walk in the smalls corridor streets and discover great restaurants. In general is a beautiful town with a lot to explore.
Over Bay Palace:
Bay Palace Hotel is very clean, it has amazing view to the beach and location .Service was very good , the breakfast was not impressed ,only boiled eggs ,old fruits and standard yogurt and granola.Parking is very bad there .The wifi is also not great and the showers need an upgrade.About 250 m you can buy tickets to the cable to go up to Taormina ,but you must walk in the dangerous busy road to get there day or nite . 100 m to the left there are 2 nice beaches with sand , the famous isola bella beach is full with stones ..In general the hotel was good, i like the pool very much , it has a great view and good location.
