A wonderful holiday
We booked the holiday through TUI, flying with Easy Jet from Manchester to Catania airport, with TUI organising the transfer to the hotel via a private taxi. On arrival the staff were exceptionally welcoming, sitting us down with a glass of Prosecco, whilst they took the suitcases to our bungalow. Although a tad small, the bungalow had plenty of storage and was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The room was serviced to a very high standard daily with towels changed twice daily. The air conditioning was particularly appreciated as the weather was very warm throughout our 2 week stay. The breakfast was available from 7-00AM to 10-30AM and was exceptional, with an extensive selection from cakes and pastries, cold meats and cheeses and, of course a hot option. The staff worked tirelessly to ensure everything was available and nothing was too much trouble. The views from the terrace were fabulous. The beach is all pebbles and getting in and out of the sea needs some care and we would recommend you purchase beach shoes. No need to worry about bagging a sun lounger as they are all reserved for guests and the beach team were brilliant. They will set you up with towels and move the loungers for you depending on your preference for sun or shade. Drinks and snacks are available at the beach bar and staff will bring these to you with a smile. The food at both the beach bar and the on site restaurant, Fusion, is of a high standard, if a bit pricey. A 5 minute walk takes you to the middle of Mazzarò, where there is a good selection of bars and restaurants to choose from. There are 3 or 4 Mini Markets and a pharmacy as well. The cable car is strategically placed just a few minutes away if you want to get to Taormina (at the time of writing the round trip was €6). It can get busy in the evening so you might have to queue for a little while; the cable car runs until 01-00AM. Taormina itself is a bustling town with good shops and a huge selection of bars and restaurants. There are good views of the coast and mount Etna from the square. Lots of outside bar seating for a spot of people watching. Castelmola, situated above Taormina is a good outing, either by taxi or bus. A traditional Sicilian village with great views, the remains of a Norman castle and a selection of bars and restaurants. Overall this was a great holiday, the staff at La Plage are exemplary and a credit to the hotel. We can fully recommend the resort and look forward to a return visit.
We have nothing but positive comments about Le Plage. This is a fabulous beach-side hotel with 5* professional and friendly service. Special mention to the staff on reception; Daniele, Carla, Francesca, Venessa and especially Salvatore who sorted out our AC and wi-fi. We had a bungalow and found it to be very comfortable with adequate facilities. Almost the highlight of each day was breakfast. Sat out on a beautiful terrace with the most amazing views of the Pizzichella lagoon and Isola Bella we gorged on the most delicious selection of food (and a cheeky prosecco if it takes your fancy.) We needed to relax after 3 tough years, so we really didn't do much and took full advantage of the beach and all the facilities at this one storey hotel which is right on the beach. As soon as you reach the beach, Hamza looks after you; shows you to your reserved sun-loungers, fresh & clean beach towels supplied and is always their to assist in any matters beach related (i was stung by a jelly fish; quite painful but Hamza was on hand to administer antiseptic etc.,) We also have to mention Daniela, Andre and especially young Francesco from the beach bar. Always available to bring your refreshments or lunch to you on the beach or at the bar just behind you. All done with a friendly smile and a joke. Really first class service. Food at the Beach Bar is good; nothing too complicated, salads, panini's and pizza's plus the best (also the most expensive) Aperol Spritzer in Taormina. We'll be back.
Stunning Views, Amazing Service
Everyone in our family agreed that Taormina, and especially La Plage, were the absolute highlights of our time in Italy -- which also included visits to Naples, Pompeii, Cetara, Positano, Sorrento and Capri. The unforgettable views of Isola Bella and the Ionian Sea, the incredibly friendly service, the first-rate food and strong wine list -- all ideally situated just down the hill from historic Taormina with its Greek Theater, shops and more. La Plage was for us, in a word, idyllic.
Classy life saver
I was walking along the scorching hot beach in desperate need of a rest and drink. This place looked the best by far with comfy armchairs overlooking the sea. Unfortunately all the seats in the shade were occupied but a very friendly waiter found me a similar comfy chair round the back of the restaurant. No view but tremendous service. An Aperol Spritz was delivered with delicious olives. In fact the best Aperol that I had tasted - €10. I shall return and thoroughly recommend.
Fabulous location with rooms overlooking the Natural Reserve of Isola Bella
Arriving at La Plage resort in Isola Bella earlier than check in time was not an issue for our group, Ms Cipolla at the reservations department and front of house operations quickly resolved this and made us feel at home within minutes of putting down our heavy bags! Little did we know that breakfast fit for a king and a queen was already at hand! Such a delight after travelling through the night to reach this idyllic setting :) The highlight of our days was definitely the peaceful surroundings, the accommodation with jacuzzi, the uninterrupted view on Isola Bella, the spa facilities and perfect massage, the can do attitude of all hotel staff, always delivered as promptly as asked for, and, the sumptuous breakfast. The bungalows are geared for a couple that wants to enjoy plenty of cosyness and that is exactly what you will find here. Daniele ensured that we settled in quickly and comfortably with everything we possibly needed for a weekend break, the beach service was attentive and sun loungers reserved for us daily as part of the hotel service. A place to really unwind and re-energise! Highly recommended for couples and girls that wanna have fun!!
