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.

Everything about this abundantly decorated villa is amazing. Host is so efficient and informative he basically got us well oriented to the area within the first 15 minutes after our arrival. Location is convenient - short walk to the beach, cable car to the town center above right next door. Train station about a mile away. Getting in and out of the small building on foot is easy via a tiny elevator that fits two (there is still a short staircase to street level). Driving to the upper entrance of the B&B will be very tricky and probably should only be left to local drivers. Definitely book the sea view rooms with private attached terrace. Rooms are not cheap in September (ours came to about $300/night) but worth the splurge. Breakfast served on your own terrace each morning is one of the highlights of our stay. There is one room without sea view but it comes with an exclusive rooftop terrace which does. This is a place I'd absolutely return to for future visits.

Very cute boutique hotel with great view and amazing host. Hotel is located 2 min it’s from cable car to Taormina great restaurants and promenade. Just a little problem for the people who has claustrophobia- to get to the beach you need to use small elevator , but this is problem if all hotels on the top of the hill.

We were VERY satisfied with our stay at Villa Arianna - perfect location with fantastic view, and walking distance to both the beach and the cable car to Taormina! Even better is the lovely hosts, Maria and Salvo - they were so helpful with everything, gave us recommendations for day trips, restaurants and set up a nice breakfast on our private terrace every morning. All in all above our expectations!

Villa Arianna is a perfect place to stay in Taormina. Maria and Salvo are so friendly and went out of their way to make us comfortable. We had access to a private roof terrace where we had our breakfast looking over the bay. Our room was beautifully furnished. It’s close to the beach and the cable car into the town centre. We can’t recommend the Villa Arianna enough and we hope to come back soon. It has been our best stay in Sicily!

We have just returned from staying at this wonderful villa, I could not believe the attention to detail and the staff are so friendly, helpful and welcoming. I would 100% recommend to stay here. The villa was absolutely spotless and cleaned to a very high standard every day, we stayed in the Sicliian bedroom and had the roof top terrace all to ourselves which was just stunning and have our breakfast up there and watch the world go by. Thank you so much for making our week just perfect 🥰

On arrival Maria and Salvatore were there to welcome me. They both showed me to my room and showed me around the villa. Also taking time to introduce me to the local shop downstairs, who were also very friendly. Maria and Salvatore really went out of their to make you feel welcome. Also bringing a home made cake for my 50th birthday. Thank you for making my first visit in Sicily special. The B&B is a hidden little gem in taromina and could not find one fault. From Maria, Salvatore and transport from the B&B to the airport by Andrea, everyone was extremely friendly, helpful. To rate this hotel outstanding still would not be enough. I have travelled many places but none come close to how special this place is. You won’t be disappointed. Thank you from leianne

We had a great stay at Villa Arianna, with its friendly hosts, Maria and Salvatore. Lovely room with very spacious balcony having the best view at the beach/sea of Taormina. Very nice to have the extended breakfast every morning on the terrace. Beach, shops, restaurants and important nearby the funiculaire to Taormina city center. Overall a place to come back.

We stayed here from 7th September for 7 days. I had read all the reviews but took it with a pinch of salt as been disappointed before. The accommodation and the hosts are outstanding, nothing was too much trouble. They are what hospitality is all about. Breakfast on your private balcony was superb and at time requested to the minute. I cannot think of anything to complain about. Beautiful views and great room. This place is worth every penny, I would go back anytime. Thank you to all at Villa Arianna for such a amazing break away.

We had an incredible 5 night stay at Villa Arianna! Salvo and Maria Pia are possibly the kindest, most accommodating hosts we have had the good fortune to come across. Every morning they would knock on our door to serve us breakfast on our stunning terrace with a smile on their face and a big 'good morning!'. Nothing was too much trouble. The terrace in our room has a spectacular view over Mazzaro Bay, along with a table and chairs and sun loungers and a sun shade. We loved going to Mazzaro/Isola Bella to snorkel and then coming back to the room for a lunch overlooking the gorgeous view. Every day a lovely gift was left in our room for us and the room has very thoughtful touches such as wine glasses/plates/cutlery and ice cubes so that we could fully utilise the amazing terrace. The villa is located just above mazzaro Bay and a minutes walk takes you to the cable car station (3 eur each way, every 5 mins)to travel up into Taormina for dining. We found the location perfect, best of both worlds with the breeze and the sea beneath us but easy access to the town for restaurants. The cable car ran until 1am. Next door is a wine shop/deli owned by Salvo's brother which we used everyday for water/wine and delicious food (pistachio cheese!!) Overall we had the most incredible time here. 100% recommend and would love to stay again some day.

We were absolutely charmed by our five night stay at Villa Arianna. Our room was simply stunning, with a fabulous view over the bay, where we enjoyed swimming. The delicious Sicilian breakfast served to us each day on our private balcony was always a pleasure. We were delighted by the courteous and warm welcome from Salvo at the train station when he picked us up in his car and of course the subsequent excellent personal service provided by his charming wife, Maria Pia, and Marcello. They were thoughtful and unobtrusive, but someone was always to hand when we needed to check anything, including what to do and where to eat in Taormina. A particularly lovely touch was the daily 'gift' left in our room, which included a bottle of local wine, and fruit juice and amaretti biscuits. Taormina is a jewel of a resort which has many things to offer a wide range of travellers and tourists. We will definitely be returning to stay at Villa Arianna on our next trip to Sicily.
