We drove to Taormina from Mt. Etna and upon arrival got a little turned around on the streets (a few times), when we found Hotel Villa Carlotta it was an amazing relief to turn over our car to the Valet. As soon as we walked in we were welcomed by the staff and managers, our room wasn't ready yet (as it was only around 11) so they led us to the roof top restaurant to welcome us with a drink and a sweet snack. The view from up there was just beautiful!!! We then went to spend some time by the pool, which is like a little oasis. Our room was huge, the bathroom was modern and clean, the beds were comfortable and the only thing to regret was we only stayed one night.
Everyone who worked here was so nice and friencly and fun to talk with, they took excellent care of us. We were kind of tired and lazy that night so after exploring Taormina in the afternoon and seeing all the crowds we decided to have dinner at the hotel. The chef was very nice and checked on us, along with the servers, the view was great. Breakftast the next morning was about the most impressive breakfast I've ever seen they had so many wonderful things to choose from and it felt more like a weekend brunch.
