An unforgettable experience. We travel extensively and prefer 4/5 Star accommodations. We would have to give the Villa Carlotta 5+ for its excellence in every category that can be judged: the staff, the facilities, the rooms, the grounds, the amenities, the views and then there is the dining! The staff provided a welcoming tour so that we would be sure... More

I have never reviewed on tripadvisor, however, following our stay at Villa Carlotta felt compelled to write (well type) one! Villa Carlotta is a unique boutique hotel that meets your expectations and much more. From the luxe accommodation, fascinating catacombs, spotless pool and beautiful gardens to the fantastic rooftop restaurant/terrace the attention to detail and service is second to none.... More

We are a family of five from Los Angeles, used to traveling a lot in bot US and Europe and always staying in 5 star hotels. Staying at Villa Carlotta was one of the best experiences we have had as far as hotels go. Not only was it super clean, cozy and authentic but the service and staff were exceptional.... More

In my opinion, the best location in Taormina. The staff consists of a uniquely wonderful group of people that immediately make you feel like a great friend or family member. Simone, Olga, Natalie and every person we encountered at Villa Carlotta went above and beyond to deliver exemplary service at EVERY opportunity. They handle every detail with sincerity, grace, and...

This is our second stay at Villa Carlotta and it was still fabulous in every way. Everything you have read is true. From the moment you walk through that door, the staff make you feel as if you are part of their family. With warm hugs and kisses, the staff truly make you feel special. This stay we stayed for...

There's not a great deal that hasn't already been said about the Villa Carlotta. It simply does as the 5 star reviews say. My fiancee and I enjoyed 5 nights here recently and it was simply a wonderful stay. I couldn't really fault the place - location, views, interior decor, room, friendly staff, food, pool, gardens and so on -... More

We chose to stay in the apartment a few minutes walk from the hotel for the week of our wedding so we had kitchen facilities, washer and dryer and... More

We arrived after a long drive and were welcomed and whisked up to the rooftop bar (also the dining area) and given complementary glasses of prosecco whilst looking out to sea or at a sultry smoking Etna. What a great introduction to the hotel. Nothing we asked was a problem and Simona was a real gem. Unfortunately we could only... More

We drove to Taormina from Mt. Etna and upon arrival got a little turned around on the streets (a few times), when we found Hotel Villa Carlotta it was an amazing relief to turn over our car to the Valet. As soon as we walked in we were welcomed by the staff and managers, our room wasn't ready yet (as... More

Fabulous hotel in Taormina. We chose this hotel after reading many reviews on various different hotels in the area and we were not disappointed! Stayed in a garden terrace room, very nice with a huge bathroom & double walk in shower for 2!! Hotel is small compared to some, but that's what we wanted. Breakfast is superb with excellent choice,... More
