Just returned from a week's holiday in Taormina, Sicily and would like to take the time to show appreciation for a fantastic hotel.
The Hotel Villa Angela is located high on the hillside above Taormina town and consequently it has a spectacular view over Etna and the coastline. This obviously means that if you want to make the walk to or from the hotel to the town you should be fairly active. If you are happy to use the hotel shuttle bus it will be a small additional charge but well worth it even if you just use it to come back up the hill.
The staff at the hotel were all extremely helpful and the food at breakfast and lunch time were of a high standard.
Taormina is a lovely resort with lots of restaurants, shops and Gelato parlours. It does on some days fill up with tourists from the cruise ships particularly around the Greco Roman theatre.
If you want a slightly quieter experience then visit nearby Castelmola which is a short bus ride away. The views and restaurants from there are first class.

Room Tip: All rooms have an outside terrace and fantastic view

Now this is what I call a holiday place to stay. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and very approachable. The rooms were of a great standard and very very comfortable and there was a great spa bath and the ambience in the bathroom was amazing (so relaxing). The view was breath takingly amazing. The view first thing in the morning was incredible with so much to see I just stood on the balcony staring out in amazement. There was breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks available and the menu and meals were very very tasty i might add. There was a great relaxing area around the pool which the kids loved and a bar for guests in the evening. Free internet was also available and a shuttle service was available and very accomodatingwith times etc for pick up and drop off . They also organised a vehicle to take us back to Pozzano which was wonderful as there was no stress as to how we were going to get back to the ferry . My children, husband and myself loved Villa Angela and are hoping we will be able to return there again some time soon. All in all a wonderful place to stay. Thankyou to the staff of Villa Angela for making our family holiday so enjoyable and relaxing.

Villa Angela is located in the upper part of Taormina so your view from any of the rooms is of the waterfront and Mt. Etna. They provide a very nice breakfast and lunch and you can get snacks and room service most of the time, Small but nice pool and sunning area. Free Internet! They also provide a shuttle to and from the central part of Taormina and you can book your times to go and return. The staff is superb!

Room Tip: Try to get the second floor - the balconys are nice.

Promised you a Miracle - a Simple Minds hit - well Jim Kerr, you certainly keep your promises!
We read the Trip Advisor comments prior to booking for nine nights in September. As usual we go with the overwhelming consensus of opinion, which was excellent and ignore the usual moaners. We just don't understand how people can complain about the location which is clearly described in the hotel literature and website. The breathtaking, stunning views from Villa Angela can only be synominous with high elevation. We visited a couple of other hotels in the town and whilst they were very good, and the views were very pleasant, Villa Angela is in a league of its own. Having lunch on the restuarant terrace with an uninhibited view of Mount Etna and Catania thirty miles away was heaven indeed.

On the Saturday night we were treated to a spectacular fireworks display going on in the town below and others in the villages below Etna. What an experience to be looking down on a fireworks display rather than up at it.

The shuttle bus service worked very well for us, always on time. The last one is 11.30 pm but that was no problem for us.

The room was spacious with a balcony the same size which was equiped with table and chairs and two sun loungers - with still plenty of room left.

A big thank you to all the staff who were fantastic and made our stay such a pleasure. Clara (who has brilliant English) and Erico in the restaurant, Charlie, Katherine and management staff and Andre. Santina and Elisa who tried their best to teach me Italian - still 'non capisco' !! Santina taught Daisy 'high fives' in Italian - (sorry Charlie).

In summary, a superb relaxing hotel, great food, stunning views and brilliant staff. However, we do have one complaint - we had to go home!!

We're already planning a return visit in June 2013.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Villa Angela and absolutely adored it.
Staff: extremely friendly and helpful.
Hotel shuttle bus: meant that we had the advantage of easy access to Taormina (which can be accessed via many steps or a twisty road if you choose the long walk) while the wonderful advantage of being high up for the view of Mount Etna and away from any noise or bustle.
Rooms: classy and very well kept.
Private room terrace: lovely to sit on and gaze at Mount Etna.
Etna erupted the first night we arrived! What a thrill. Make sure that you have a member of your party on 'Etna watch' at all times! It's easy to miss the show!
Dining: you can see the volcano from the dining room. Breakfasts were tasty. When we stayed at the hotel, dinner was not served every evening. Lots of restaurants in the town and one a five minute walk up the road from the hotel.
Taormina: a beautiful town to explore. Isola Bella is a very pretty island to visit. Giardino Publico is a pretty garden to wander round. Corso Umberto is the main street and a treat to meander along. The Greek ampitheatre is an amazing sight.
I would love to return to return to Hotel Villa Angela one day.
