We first visted this hotel approximately 4 years ago and were quite impressed. Sadly, not so this time. We were on a half-board basis and in view of the previous level of cusine 4 years ago we were looking forward to a range of authentic Sicilian dishes. This did not materialise. Breakfast was adequate but the evening meal was average. Unbelieveably, it seems that Vaping is allowed in the Dining Room during the evening meal as one couple openly Vaped without censure. Our room had a balconey on the first floor and the views were breathtaking. It was cofortable and kept clean. However smoking is allowed on the balconeys and as, after a few days there, we gained a chain-smoking neighbour this was highly unpleasant. The staff were helpful, friendly and did their best to make our holiday enjoyable. Overall, a quiet, enjoyable holiday in a quiet hotel on an Island we adore.
We had a great stay went walking everyday along the coast and up the hill to Taormina swimming was great too the hotel has a salt water pool thats nice and you can also swim in the sea just walk over the lava rocks then down a short ladder . The gardens are a treat to relax in and watch the sea roll in we had a great room with sea view clean the aircon was good.Manuela was a great help organising our tours and transfers really friendly and helpfull staff allround with a wealth of local info and tips
What a lovely place
Located just at the end of the main resort (opposite end to the train station) this beautiful hotel is tucked quietly on the sea front. A wonderful sea water pool surrounded in plenty of sun beds and direct access into deep sea via steps. The location is perfect with a good selection of restaurants on the nearby strip, all within walking distance. A bus stop at the end of the lane to take you to the surrounding resorts and Taormina train station (taxis are VERY expensive in Sicily). the rooms are beautifully decorated with plenty of space and very clean. We were in Sicily for 2 weeks and travelled about staying in a number of different places. this place was by far the best. It is old and perhaps a little tired but I just felt I was in the middle of a Poirot scene. the staff are very helpful and friendly. If I could single out any particular group it would be reception who couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful in planning and advising on what to do and how to do it. The breakfast had plenty of choice and a selection of freshly cooked eggs, bacon etc. cant comment on the lunch or dinner as we chose to eat out. I would definitely go back and would not hesitate to recommend Arathena Rocks Hotel.

We stayed here in June with Fleetway who had booked rooms for 54 people. When we arrived, we were exhausted, and the woman behind the desk was middle-aged with dark curly hair. My sister and I plus another friend traveling as a solo were given two rooms behind the desk. This worried me as usually staff use these types of rooms. As soon as we went in, we noted a very dated decor and bathrooms, but what was unacceptable was the terrible sewage stench emanating from both of the rooms which made us feel nauseated so we asked to please be given other rooms. The lady behind the desk then proceeded to tell our team leader the rooms were fine, but even our team leader acknowledged the smell was awful. It took over an hour of our team leader arguing with this woman behind the desk to get us two different rooms. The woman yelled, slammed doors, and was just plain rude. However, after we were given two other rooms, we were happy with the grounds and the lovely location. Breakfast was really great, too, and we loved the vintage pieces and antiques with blend of Greek and Italian decor. The swimming pool was wonderful, too! If you book here, simply state you want a room upstairs with a sea view, and definitely tell them no rooms behind the desk!
