Reviewed 28 August 2014

This hotel is absolutely amazing. The views are out of this world. The staff were extremely professional and helpful. The facilities superb. There were always plenty of sun-loungers available. We even had complimentary cocktails by the pool on several occasions. The restaurant served delicious food and wine. The walk to the town was manageable especially knowing that you could get the shuttle bus back. We felt truly cosseted during our visit. Would be wonderful to return one day.

Room Tip: We were in a superior room which had two sun-loungers as well as two chairs and a table on the south...

The Villa Angela is one of the best hotels in which my partner and I have ever stayed, it was so comfortable and welcoming and the staff were the best, nothing was too much trouble for them, with special mention to Ada(who assisted me with my Italian!}Katherine and Marco on reception, and the Manager Charlie was very approachable as were all the staff.
Views from this hotel are superb due to its situation and even though it is at the top of a hill!!!!!they provide a excellent shuttle service to and from Taormina.
There is one downside in regard to the breakfast,minor though it is, it would maybe help if the hot food is cooked when required, but in no way would this deter me from a return visit.

Best things: All rooms face the best view (breathtaking), lunch is excellent, service outstanding, prices are fine including the bar, extremely frequent shuttle bus service to the town, free wifi with excellent coverage, the pool is excellent (although I recommend adding a surcharge for people with young children who refuse to control them screeching :) )

Down side: Breakfast could be made a little better easily, for example why not offer cooking the eggs and bacon freshly or offering fresh italian style coffee at the tables? Overall the variety at breakfast was fine though and it was nice.
The room we were in had a double bed made of pushing two singles together which aren't ... let's say ... the most practical for younger couples.

Tips to hotel: Add an extra drop off for your shuttle service on the other side of corso umberto, friends I had staying in the town were on the other side from the drop off point and walking the whole length of corso umberto in peak season takes 15 minutes due to congestion.

Phase out a good portion of the single beds pushed together to make a double so as few guests have to deal with them as possible. I appreciate they are a hoteliers necessary evil to a certain extent.

Make water much more accessible around the pool and hotel generally (perhaps two large bottles in the room every day?)

Finally, perhaps jazz up the breakfast a bit... you could push your price up if you did.

Great stay overall though and I would stay again. Thanks a lot

Still totally lost for words...Words such as "Amazing" and "Excellent" come to mind but somehow don't seem to do justice....Imagine your ideal wedding no matter what the cost, multiply that thought by one million and you're not even close.

Villa Angela has a four star rating, but we would rate it much better than that...completely off the scale, and finished to the highest specifications, with no attention to detail spared....The property is set high up in the hills of beautiful Taormina, and offers peace and quiet with the most stunning views of the entire town and blue sea, and from your own private balcony, enjoy the awesome Mount Etna, ideal for honeymooners, couples and families.

As avid fans of Simple Minds, myself and my wife Julie planned our Wedding Day around the concert at Teatro Greco on 24 July 2014, and we still pinch ourselves today in disbelief...

Setting aside the music for a moment, all the management and staff at Villa Angela are among the most loveliest people we have ever met, in fact we now regard them as dear friends...Regardless of your reasons for travelling, they always go that extra mile to ensure your stay is perfection..It really does feel like home.

Our individual room was simply breath taking and spotlessly clean..Breakfast at Villa Angela is one of the largest selection I have ever seen in 31 years of travelling with both a hot and cold style buffet, with every morning greeted with smiles and hand shakes.

A single taxi journey down to the beautiful Corso Umberto costs between 15 and 20 euros a time..We took advantage of Villa Angela's shuttle service at an amazing 20 euros per person for a week, and the shuttle service runs regular throughout the day and into the late evening..With the odd blast of "Soul Crying Out" on the way down...Fantastic.

Apologies for the delay in posting our review as we have returned to normality and still in disbelief to this day..The experience was that good...So to Katharine, Charlie and Everyone at Villa Angela you will always be in our hearts for making our special day and honeymoon the most jaw dropping experience ever and your hospitality and kindness is second to none !

We have already booked again next year for our 1st anniversary, and plan to make it a yearly event...God Bless you all, from John & Julie Fagan (You'll Never Walk Alone.)

Stayed for the week everyone has said it already but this really is an enjoyable location just above the town . The hotels shuttle which you pay for when there is very good . the staff are all nice and very helpful on reception especially Katherine there was always space by the pool and plenty of sun beds etc the breakfast is good and gives very enjoyable views over the pool area and bay . I can only find one negative and that was the food for dinner which we only had once wasn't very good unlike the rest of taormina which was brilliant but I don't want to spoil an otherwise lovely stay my advice to anyone thinking of going is go and experience this lovely part of the world .

Room Tip: They are all good and give lovely views of taormina and mt etna

You won't be disappointed. Service is excellent. So great to know that nothing is too much trouble. The ratio of staff to residents makes for a truly relaxed stay. Will definitely come back here. The location whilst outside if the town is not a problem as they run a frequent courtesy bus service. The views are breathtaking.

There is little to add from the previous reviews other than to endorse the excellent service, hospitality and comfort afforded by this little gem! Wonderful views and comfortable rooms with a lovely relaxing poolside provided a very enjoyable vacation.
Don't be put off by the location above the town as the mini bus shuttle operates very efficiently - pay no attention to previous reviews complaining of the booking process and cost - hardly burdensome and at EUR20 minimal cost.
No end of good restaurants in town for evening meals and don't miss the great local fish. Visit to Etna better than expected and, if you are there at the right time, try an evening performance at the amphitheatre: we tried Tosca - long but worth it just for the atmosphere and evening views.

Room Tip: All rooms have views of Etna. Perhaps try to avoid one directly underneath the reception area terrac...
