Reviewed 29 September 2013

I'd never been to Sicily before. This hotel was a stay in a tour package and it prooved to be a treat. The setting is unmatched. Its high on a hill above town with a sweeping view from the bay all the way up to Mt. Etna. Wonderful balcony in our room created the ideal viewing spot. Restaurant was excellent. Dinner was lots of fish dishes and that came out very good.

We have recently returned from a week at the Villa Angela and have nothing but praise for the hotel having had a wonderful holiday.

The hotel is superb, with excellent customer service, spotless accommodation, great food, and to top it all the views of the coast and mount Etna are breathtaking.

My wife is a vegetarian and she was very pleasantly surprised by the breakfast which included a good selection of hot vegetables, scrambled and fried eggs, as well as a variety of bread, fruit etc etc.

The hotel offers a mini bus service into the resort centre which runs on a prebooked basis for a very reasonable fee.

The staff at the hotel are all extremely customer focused being pleasant and efficient, nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

As part of our holiday we celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary and it was a nice touch that on our special day the hotel manager arranged for a bottle of Prosecco on ice and some nibbles to be delivered to our room with the complements of the hotel.

All in all a truly memorable holiday in a truly wonderful hotel.

Absolutely splendid view to Etna.
Very clean rooms.
But Wi-fi is low and near door in room.
Breakfast was average if you are looking for classic scrambled egg and bacon. Dolce was tasty.

Hotel provides shuttle to old centre every hour. We enjoyed a lot comfort.

Hotel staff is english speaking and very-very friendly.

Parking is private on the roof of hotel.

We stayed at the Villa Angela for our honeymoon from 8th September, for one week. I can only repeat all the positives about what has previously been said about the hotel. The staff are fantastic, idyllic views - which are wonderful to admire from your large & well-furnished balcony. Breakfast is a treat- the croissants were our personal favourite!
The shuttle bus facility the hotel offer is perfect - we didn't expect such a selection of times available to catch it to and from Taormina.
Taormina itself is amazing! Very busy at times but we loved it all - so much more than we had expected, enough bars and restaurants to last you a month, typical tourist gift shops nestled in between high end designer boutiques! And always such good vibes in the town. With the Greek theatre and the beautiful public gardens in Taormina there's plenty to do in the day and night.
Castelmola is definitely worth a visit, just when you thought you high up looking from your room at the Villa Angela! A very quaint, historic town with the quirky bar turissi...made us laugh!
Keep enjoying the views of Etna from everywhere you go. So fantastic. We did a day trip up to 2000m of Etna, worth it when you are above the clouds.
We also visited Isola Bella - almost like paradise! Mind the rocky sea though- I experienced a cut toe. Sea shoes would be a good shout.
For us, we felt a week was enough to see and do what we wanted in Sicily and being at the Villa Angela meant a relaxing time whilst we were at the hotel.
A perfect honeymoon. A wonderful place, complimented by such a great hotel!

This is a very special place... pefect location & accommodations. The hotel itself is above Taormina and below Castelmola & you can see both from the your room terrace! We were there mid August during the busiest week of the year -- the crowds in Taormina itself were maddening. The town was full of tourists staying in Taormina and full of people visiting from the cruise ships, but Villa Angela was a haven of peace, beauty and kindess. Katherine and the staff are amazing ... I read 100s of reviews before I booked here and most spoke about how wonderful the staff is. It's all true! This is a true boutique hotel for those who want a more intimate place with a swimming pool to boot. It's also a great hotel for kids (mine are 10 and 12). I hope that we'll be back there one day... we wouldn't stay anyplace else.

Room Tip: All rooms have great views.

Beautiful views of Mount Etna and the Tyrrhenian sea! They have a convenient shuttle to take you to town. Taormina is charming with a must see Greek Theatre. The beach us reachable by a funicula. So much to do and see! The hotel staff are excellent.
