Intimate, luxurious and very good value out of season. A room you don't want to leave
The shower didn't drain quickly enough
Breakfast was a little poor
A perfect boutique hotel in the hearth of Taormina! The hotel staff were very professional and courteous. They spoke perfect English. The waiters at breakfast were exceptional serving a multi-course breakfast of our choice.The room was luxurious but not overdone. Comfortable beds, silent airconditioning, tastefully decorated, amazing views!The bathroom was exceptionally clean with the most elegant fixtures I have ever seen. Internet wifi available for free. The hotel is excellent located in Taormina (Sicily's Monte Carlo!), everything is within walking distance in this historic town. From the hotel's terrace (cool bar & restaurant on the rooftop) you have a superb view over Sicily's East-coast with Etna and Mediterranean sea! We will be going back to El Jebel that is for sure!
One of the best hotels I have stayed at!
The room and the staff were terrific
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.
The room and location
The service and staff were excellent but as far as I could tell there were only one other couple staying at the time. It needs to be seen how they would cope in the high season.The design of rooms and and bathrooms was first rate and functional.
The main restaurant menu was the only menu on offer for room service. For a hotel of this there should be another choice.
An excellent hotel in all aspects! It was the first time we spent a couple of nights there, but we would definitely like to go back, at least once a year. Relaxing, luxury and cozy at the same time. Excellent sea view from the Suite of Sultan, original design and decoration of the room and the bathroom. Mediterranean breakfast just superb. The only limitation, for people with walking problems, is the access to this hotel: through 20 stairs (and no access by car).
Everything was fantastic - but the atmosphere was stylish without being sterile. The service was attentive, warm and very competent. The restaurant was excellent and the breakfast was yummy. The only thing that redeemed our 3 days of rain - was El Jebel. This hotel would suit anyone - young or old.
I would not recommend this for anyone having difficulty climbing stairs. Although our luggage was taken care of - there are still at least 20 steps to the main entrance.
Building is superb as is location. Suites are well designed and reasonably spacious. Friendly and helpful staff.
There are a number of extra charges that are not expected with a five-star establishment eg for beach club use; for wifi and for parking and incidentally the parking is not on-site as suggested on the website. The standard continental breakfast though adequate is a tad on the meagre side.
