Beautiful view, very cute hotel, lovely staff! Close promenade to the village. Nice hike to the beach. It felt that I was in an Italien movie. Just 1 hour from drive from Catania airport. Important note! The rooms were perfectly cleaned every day.

We stayed for six nights and couldn't have been more delighted. Villa Belvedere is exceptional in many ways, first and foremost in the way it cares for its guests. Many hotels provide a kind of perfunctory service, but Villa Belvedere's cheerful and caring staff outshine every

Dear Guests, What a splendid revue you have published about your stay at Villa Belvedere ! Thank you very much ! As you will very probably realise, the kind comments you have written about my truly great teams of staff in the different areas of the hotel, - whom I too, very much admire and appreciate for their helpfulness and their knowledge of all the various kinds of information that guests often need to know, unfailingly, as you remark, with a courteously friendly attitude and the enthusiasm for their work that is so pleasant to encounter, - is in fact, a just recognition of all they do, every day, for all our guests.. The particular, early twentieth century ambience of Villa Belvedere, that you found and enjoyed, has been carefully and lovingly maintained, although, since the hotel was first opened, over a hundred years ago, we have of course carried out several very important improvements, but, I believe, so discreetly that while the wellbeing and comfort of our guests is taken very good care of, the basic, welcoming aspect is unspoiled and so, your words, together with the full, five TA points, you have awarded to us are a much appreciated reward for all that we do in order to offer the very best, to our guests, always. Please rest assured that a very warm “welcome back” awaits you, whenever you might decide to return. Kindest regards, Cristian Pècaut, Manager.

We were greeted on arrival, bags whisked away and car parked. We were checked in (and out) by Fluvia. She made us feel at home immediately. The main hotel was a few days from opening so we stayed at a room about 40 metres away in a separate building. It was on the fifth floor.

Dear Guest, Your truly beautiful review perfectly reflects everything we always do our best to provide for all our guests. We simply want everyone to enjoy staying at Villa Belvedere, or, in your case, in one of our really comfortable and self-contained, elegant. Studio apartments, just a few yards away, on the opposite side of the same road as the hotel , but at a slightly higher ground level, so that views really are incredible. A transparent, modern lift/elevator, reaches every floor, as you discovered, and each apartment occupies a whole floor of this totally renovated, private building. Thank you so much for your time, for describing and publishing your review for the trip Advisor ‘Community’ to read and also for the full five T. A., ‘points’ you award to us, that help us stay high on the TA list of the hotels they most recommend. We would love to welcome you back, whenever you might like to return. Kindest regards, Cristian Pècaut, Manager.

We had a great apartment with a wonderful sea view. The rooms were big and comfortable but most of all really clean. The hotel is near the city centre so you can easily walk there. I will totally go back another time!

Dear Guest, As you discovered, in Sicily there is a strong sense of the tradition of making guests feel welcome here and in fact very many enjoy Sicily and particularly, pretty Taormina, so much that they return, time after time, - which we hope you will think about doing, too. Taormina in fact makes a great base for visiting all the eastern side of the island of Sicily, on easy day and even half day trips, both to the famous places like Syracuse and Agrigento, for example, but also, to nearby, less well-known, but intriguing ones. In the hills above Taormina. We would like to think that you too, will return, when it will be a pleasure to make you welcome again. Kindest regards, Cristian Pècaut, Manager.

Im so sorry have only just seen this question. however I did do quite a comprehensive post on this hotel in which I thoroughly recommended the extra for a room with a terrace and a sea view. We had room 25 which has a large terrace with sunbeds and umbrellas - a glorious view. we enjoyed this so much we have re booked for 2019, and I have been assured that all rooms with balcony and sea view are as well appointed although probably not as spacious.

Yes. The hotel will organise a taxi for you from the airport direct to the hotel. The cost was 98 euros each way. Sounds expensive but trust me its worth every cent. The buses are sporadic and if you have had a few hours flight and its hot plus your luggage to cope with, to be met at the arrivals gate and taken direct in a very comfortable car with expert driving is a bonus. Added to which, unless you know the hotel situation and Taormina town itself, its very difficult to find first time. The bus station is also at the bottom of a hill (as this is a hillside town not unexpected). We also didn't find it necessary to hire a car either. Its 20 euros to park per night at the hotel and quite frankly we met two couples who had done this and never taken it out of the car park. So the 200 euros was in our opinion worth it.

Can trip from the hotel to Mount Etna be arranged and how much will this cost please?
Use the guide the hotel recommends. She was fabulous. Takes you to the relatively untouristy side. I forget the cost but it was not very expensive and you get a great tour.

The car park is extremely crowded, but hotel seems to manage it well. Like the others, I wouldn't recommend renting a car for the whole time. We used Taormina car service for many trips, and hired a car for the day through the hotel (it was delivered/picked up from hotel) when we wanted to go farther afield. Driving through taormina itself is difficult. Happy travels, Lisa
