We stayed at one of the Villa Carlotta apartments (in a separate building a few meters away from the rest of the hotel). The apartment was stocked with espresso, milk, juice, and fruit. The bathroom is beautiful, the bed is comfortable and the view is STUNNING.... More

A lovely hotel in a converted old villa. Imagine waking up every morning & stepping out onto your patio with a view of the Mediterranean & the pool below. Walk everywhere in Taormina from the hotel. The staff are wonderful & had great recommendations for restaurants & touring on Sicily. Excellent breakfast on the top floor with beautiful views.

I agree with many others who have stayed here and written positive reviews. I thought the hotel was situated in a beautiful spot, with sweeping views overlooking the Mediterranean available from most rooms and from the restaurant and the hotel terrace. The restaurant offered guests a delicious breakfast every morning, full of variety with a hot/cold buffet, an assortment of... More
