Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The room was lovely, clean and comfortable. Located quite close to the main shopping area and a short stroll to the supermarket on the same street. The view from the terrace bar was sensational - a rather pleasant way to while away some time enjoying a negroni. Friendly and helpful service. A very short taxi trip to the station.

We have just returned from Taormina, celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. Everything about this hotel is exquisite. From the minute I booked the hotel the staff have been amazing, so helpful and going above and beyond to ensure everything was just perfect. Our room was beautiful, clean, classic Sicilian furniture and a huge super comfortable bed, beautiful toiletries and even a glass of bubbly on arrival. The hotels decor is just stunning, authentic, classic and beautifully placed. Breakfast with a view, overlooking Etna. Delicious local produce, great service and amazing coffee. I couldn’t recommend this hotel enough, it is truly a gem!!! Hotel villa Taormina thank you for making our trip so memorable.

Everything about this hotel is absolutely outstanding. The staff cannot do enough for you and treat you like family members rather than guests. We were welcomed on arrival with a drink and couldn’t fault anything at all. Our room was unbelievably quiet, the bed was spacious and extremely comfortable, and the breakfast was out of this world. This was our first visit to Taormina and Sicily and the reviews of this hotel were spot on. Paolo and Claudia were so attentive throughout our visit, our room was always spotless and we were lucky enough to see Etna most mornings as we enjoyed breakfast. If you want to stay in the best hotel in Taormina, choose Villa Taormina!

We stayed 3 nights at this lovely, small hotel. It is off the main tourist street, so more quiet. The room with limited sea view was comfortable with character and style. We enjoyed having breakfast at the roof terrace, with nice view to Etna. There are several secluded places outdoor to enjoy the pool and the sun. None of the outdoor places having a view though. The staff was super nice.

A warm welcome, our car was taken to be parked outside the Villa, we walked through the pretty terraced gardens with oranges, jasmine, lemons and a cheeky lizard or 2, all with a splendid views out over the sea and looming Etna. The gardens are beautifully kept and offer a range of peaceful spaces to sip a drink, read a book and soak in the special atmosphere that is Taormina. We were greeted warmly at reception where we sipped a refreshing drink while Nino explained the local sites and dinner recommendations, these proved to be most helpful. We had 2 rooms both were exceptionally clean and comfortable and both with small terraces and lots of charm. We really enjoyed our stay in Taormina, although off season we certainly enjoyed the sunny blue skies, cool temperatures and lack of crowds, we felt like we had this wonderful space to ourselves. We slept very well and had a great breakfast, good variety and lots of very local options with friendly service.

We absolutely loved staying at the hotel villa Taormina. This charming hotel is just steps away from the main shopping street but tucked just far enough away so the evenings are peaceful and quiet. The breakfast was wonderful and had amazing views of both Etna and the sea. The concierge made dinner reservations each night for us at the most delicious local restaurants ( Trattoria Tiramisu was our fav!). Overall, we had a great experience staying at the Hotel Villa Taormina.

Dear Darlene B, thank you for your lovely review. The Villa itself it's a house of historical interest build within the walls of the fortress which used to protect the town center. In less than a minute down the ancient steps you will find yourself on the bustling main street, but still far enough to enjoy our quite "Secret Garden" and its beautiful rooftop bar. Our staff is here to ensure a Real Sicilian Hospitality. We hope to see you soon, Happy New Year from all of us.

We can’t rate this hotel high enough. We travelled as a couple to celebrate our anniversary and had the most amazing time. Nino and all of the staff are all so accommodating, friendly and helpful and really go over and above to make your stay special. The hotel itself and our room was just lovely, so clean, we cant fault it. The location is excellent a very short walk to all of the restaurants shops and bars. We really really recommend staying here when visiting Taormina and we cannot wait to return. A big thank you to everyone at Hotel Villa Taormina for making our trip so special.

This is a gem. So many five stars. First the staff, hotel manager, front desk, valet, bartender, and breakfast guys are all amazing, wonderful, friendly and service oriented! The communication before arrival and during our stay, has been tiptop. The hotel itself is absolutely fantastic from the rooms, the linens, and magnificent views. The breakfast was awesome, local products, fresh fruits and so many choices. There’s a rooftop bar happy hour at night with views of Mount Etna, and the water and the city. You couldn’t get any better than this. I highly suggest staying at least 4 nights here… You don’t need a car here. But they will park it for you. 20€ a night which is well worth it. Taormina is a high end Monte Carlo of Sicily… GO HERE!!!
