Hotel Villa Carlotta
Ranked #3 of 87 Hotels in Taormina
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 May 2014

This is a fantastic boutique hotel.
The staff are so professional: they knew our names within the first few hours, and nothing was too much trouble.
The room was wonderful and the breakfast, from the spectacular roof terrace , was as great as everyone else says it is.
I certainly did not begrudge 20 euros per day to park our car and it was available for us whenever we wanted it, at a few minutes' notice.
We loved the location and the short walk to the town centre.
OK you are paying 'top dollar' , but it is worth every cent, and I can't say as much about many other hotels I have stayed at.
Don't hesitate: go for it

A breathtaking Villa with a perfect view of the incredible Isola Bella. 5 minutes from the centre of Taormina and 5 minutes from the beach. We are a family of 5, our children were on their best behaviour as this property really is the height of luxury - the Villa would also suit 3 couples. Lots of luxury space, a rooftop jacuzzi and open access to the wonderful Hotel Carlotta and their excellent restaurant - this really was a wonderful week in Sicily despite the odd April shower and a perfect place to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday.

Room Tip: The best of both luxury worlds; privacy & space at the Villa plus the service, sociability and r...

From the complimentary glass of bubbly when we arrived to the "pay us next time" for the mini-bar drink, we could not have asked for a better hotel experience. The views from the room of the sea and Etna were amazing and the selection of local delicacies for breakfast, as well as the impeccable service made for a very special 3 days in Taormina.

Would recommend this hotel for anyone. We stayed in one of the apartments, which was perfect with two small children. Can't praise the staff or the service highly enough. When we return to Sicily, we will definitely stay there again.

We had a wonderful 3 nights here. We are a family of 5 and the suite that we were given fitted us well. The suite also had a lovely outdoor terrace.
We were greeted on arrival by a lady who spoke perfect English (and Italian, French and German it transpired), arranged for our hire car to be taken away and our bags taken to our room whilst she took us to a lovely lounge for a welcome drink.
All of the staff couldn't have been friendlier, especially to my young children.
The breakfast was amazing (even included sparkling wine!), in an elegant room with outdoor tables too with a view Mount Etna.
There is a nice small relaxing pool.
The hotel is only a ten minute walk from the centre of Taormina.
I wholly recommend this place: we were made to feel like special guests, not just customers.

From the moment we arrived, we felt like welcomed guests. We were quickly taken to the rooftop terrace for cake and drinks. We couldn't really appreciate the rooftop view until the final morning, when we had an awe-inspiring look at Mt. Etna.
All of the staff are superb. In particular, everyone made a special effort to engage our daughter, especially the waitress in the restaurant. The front-desk staff helped us with many questions and recommended excellent restaurants in Taormina.
It's a bit of an adventure walking between the hotel and town because of the narrow roads and traffic. However, everything else about the hotel more than makes up for that disadvantage.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the villas -- a great move for a family.
