    Our opinion

    Mazzaro Sea Palace is an elegant hotel superbly located on the beach at Taormina Mare.

    Hotel description

    Situated on its own private beach over looking the sea at Taormina Mare, the recently renovated Mazzarò Sea Palace offers warm hospitality and comfort in a relaxed sea-side atmosphere.
    The 88 rooms and suites are all elegantly furnished most with balconies and terraces overlooking the beautiful bay of Mazzarò. There are suites which can accommodate families and some even have their own private plunge pools.
    The hotel prides itself on its service; whether you wish to take an excursion to Etna, play around of golf at the Etna Golf Resort, enjoy the water sports on the beach or simply order a cocktail from your sunbed, the staff are there to oblige and ensure your stay is as relaxing as possible.
    The ‘Gattopardo’ restaurant serves regional dishes with creative flair and dinner can be taken non the terrace above the beach during the summer months. The bar ‘Tancredi’ serves delicious snacks at lunchtime and will serve aperitifs or after dinner drinks on the beautiful panoramic terrace.
    The recently opened HYD’OR Wellness Centre, situated in the sister hotel, The Atlantis Bay, just next door offers a range of Ayurveda treatments for the face and body. There is also a fully equipped gym for the more energetic and a fine swimming pool over looking the sea.
    This is a truly relaxing hotel for couples and families alike, perfectly situated for a beach holiday, but with the added bonus of being close to the fascinating sites of Taormina.
