The hallmark of this hotel is the passionate dedication by the owner and employees to serving its guests. This passion is quietly evident not only in personal contact with guests at the front desk but in the unseen service provided by housekeepers and others in maintaining a beautiful property and landscaped grounds. The desire of the staff to serve hotel... More

We had a truly magical time at the Villa Al Mare Villa Catlotta in late October 2014. We loved the Villa with its stunning views, amazing terrace with the hot tub and attention to every luxurious detail! On top of that we had access to all the excellent facilities and services at the main hotel, most notably the restaurant that... More

We chose to stay in one of the Villa Carlotta's lovely apartments, since we were in Taormina out of season and the hotel itself was closed. So we found ourselves in a gorgeous first-floor apartment with a huge comfortable superking bed, a big sitting/dining room with a little balcony, a cunning little kitchen with everything we needed for preparing breakfast...

We stayed in this hotel for 14 nights on our honeymoon in July, 2014. What can I say... Absolutely brilliant in every way. Villa Carlotta feels like more of a private house than a hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were very clean and our balcony had stunning views of the pool and the sea. Breakfasts were... More

If you want a picture (and service) perfect Italian vacation, look no further. Villa Carlotta is exactly as advertised...and more. My husband and I stayed here for 10 days, from July 1 to 10, our first trip to Sicily--- but we have been to Italy several times before. They say Taormina is the jewel of Sicily and I have to...

2 bedrooms, 2 baths, views, full service, can you ask for more? When we discovered the hotel was closed but were offered apartments, we got worried. Worry no more: one of the most cultured and educated manager/concierge in the world (Simona) is there for you (live and by email at any time). The place, even under heavy rain and cold,... More

We stayed for 3 nights in this spectacular hotel in Taormina. Room 205 seemed small at first, but there is the most wonderful terrace facing east and the Ionian Sea with views of the pool and lush gardens of the hotel as well. The sun rising on the glistening waters was hard to beat in the morning, but the pull... More

We were here in June & the service couldn't have been better. The buffet breakfast, served on the outdoor patio, was wonderful & it was such a relaxing place to have a drink in the evening. The hotel has a really nice pool area & the service there is excellent, also. The room overlooked the hills & the pool &... More

During our stay, this hotel was frequented mostly by English-speaking travellers. The services of the hotel, the interiors and the restaurant reflect this. The staff does an excellent job in perfectly fulfilling these travellers' expectations on a high-luxury stay in Italy (Dean Martin songs included). The breakfast is superb, the view of the restaurant/bar is stunning, and the service very... More

Dear guest from Zurich, thank you for your brilliant and positive review although without the highest mark. Frankly I don't understand what you meanby saying thatt at Villa Carlotta most guests are English-speaking as a little scold; as you know English is the most spoken language in the world and this is in every hotel on the planet !
