I have travelled the world and stayed in A LOT of different hotels but Villa Carlotta has my heart and I will continue to visit at least once if not twice a year.

We were at Villa Carlotta for 10 nights in September and were absolutely thrilled with our junior suite overlooking the sea! It was always clean, decor beautiful, bed comfortable, and the bathroom was huge! The entire staff was extremely accommodating, friendly, and genuine. We loved their attention to every guest at Villa Carlotta! They were very patient with our attempting...

Extremely disappointed!! We were excited to stay in a top rated hotel in Taormina, a special treat after a stressful few months. Our room was small and not well presented, staff were efficient but not very friendly. Meals were okay but not 'special'. Our evening meal was very expensive. We had looked forward to sitting by the pool in the...

Dear mrsjf27, you arrived at 6pm and left the day after at 10 am paying a cheap last minute rate and it seems everything was wrong at Villa Carlotta! Not even the staff was friendly? Not even the breakfast you liked? The curtains falling down? How can they fall down? The reason you had to leave our sister hotel ,...

I just enjoyed my third stay at the Villa Carlotta, and once again found it the best hotel experience I've encountered. The staff members are warm, friendly, helpful, and professional. They think of every detail to make their guests feel welcome and pampered. Upon arrival, when your bags are whisked away to your room, you will be guided to the...

Lovely hotel. We stayed int he duplex in the tower, which we really enjoyed. The room was lovely and 5 star quality as expected. There is a wonderful roof terrace with excellent food and views of the ocean. A quiet oasis way from the hustle and bustle of Taormina. Much better value here than the Velmond Villa Sant Andrea and...

We spent two nights here. The location is very good, a 10 minute walk from the centre of town and with a panoramic sea view. Excellent staff and facilities. Small pool and garden is nice. Rooftop dining terrace is quite special and a very nice place for breakfast. This is an old mansion converted into a hotel many years ago,...

Dear Simon R., thank you for your postive review and the many praises and compliments. I am sorry to hear you found the hotel a little dated. I believe you simply didn't like our style. Villa Carlotta was completely refurbished in 2007 and every year we close four months to update rooms, public areas, the restaurants. But if you don't...

This is a perfect place to stay with a group of friends or family. It is gorgeous with gorgeous views, and we found it a pleasant walk down to the beach. (others might not.) You do need a taxi to get to town, but that would be the case with many Taormina Hotels. The decks and patios were lovely, and...
