Hotel help, Villa Paradiso?

Hi all,

Would love some help deciding on where to stay in Taormina!

We will be there for 2 nights. Would like a pool (since we are going in August), walking distance to restaurants/shops, nice views, good breakfast.

Hotel Villa Paradiso was suggested by friends and it looks great.. but, it looks like you have to take a shuttle to get to the pool? And the shuttle is at specific times? Not sure how convenient that would be. From what I can see, there is not a pool at the main property?

Others we are considering are San Domenico Palace, Imperiale, and Monte Tauro.

Thanks for any insight!

Or Villa Carlotta? But that seems like it is further down. Is it a hassle to be down there? heh not sure what to expect!

There is no pool on site at the Hotel Villa Paradiso.

Because of the hill town landscape, not too many hotels in Taormina have pools, and many of the pools are small.

You might consider Villa Carlotta (a 10-minute walk to the centre), The Ashbee Park Hotel, Hotel Imperiale, Metropole Taormina Maison D’Hôtes, Villa Belvedere, Grand Hotel Timeo by Orient-Express....

Villa Carlotta is truly pampering, and a lovey boutique hotel, so enjoy Dianna Q!
