Just back from a lovely holiday in Hotel Sole Castello, Taormina. I couldn't fault it in any way. The staff were extremely friendly and professional, going out of their way to make our stay perfect. The hotel has the best views of Taormina and Mount Etna and although it's a long walk down, it's a beautiful walk with stunning views....
