4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed in Villa Carlotta recently. The overall experience was excellent. The quality of the accommodation, toiletries, cleanliness is first class. I do think there is a word of caution needed in terms of location. I read in previous reviews about the distance from the centre of Taormina. The hotel insist it is a short 10 minute stroll. Well it... More

A great location just on the edge of the old city. Beautifully designed with a very Italian yet modern feel. A roof top terrace restaurant for breakfast and dinner with just the right level of friendly yet courteous service. Andreas and his wife run the hotel and just so welcoming and lovely, they make you fell part of the family.... More

We had a great stay at the VC. The staff was among some of the friendliest we encountered and the view from the room was unmatched. We were provided prosecco, Italian appetizers, and a complimentary upgrade unprompted at check-in. Our room was large, had a wonderful patio and was quiet. The pool, though small was well maintained and had a... More

We went with our two nieces and were welcomed by Simona, the lovely manager. Restaurant bookings were arranged, we could come with any questions, they advised us a great beach club and made us feel at home. Great breakfast. Beautiful views. An absolute tip.

The Villa Carlotta is a wonderful place to stay when in Taormina. Everything about the place was top notch - rooms, grounds, main public areas, restaurant and food. Most importantly, the entire hotel staff are excellent ambassadors of the hotel. Every single one of them go out of their way to ensure your stay is an excellent experience. All rooms... More

Having just read a less than positive review, I think they must have been at a different hotel! Villa Carlotta is a very special place. Stunning location with breathtaking views over the coast and across to Mt Etna. Dining while watching the volcano smoke away is very special. We were in a suite with its own sun terrace and it...

We arrived to the hotel and were met with friendly staff that wanted to help with luggage check in car parking etc. The hotel is in a great spot a short walk from the main drag and various sights. This town is super touristy and the promenade is like Oxford Circus in December. The hotel is long overdue for a... More

Dear London Ocean, thank you for your review. Needless to say we found your comment extremely unfair and improper. The smell you talk about you were the only person in the whole hotel to feel it. Your opinion about the overall hotel is very personal and shows yours bad attitude towards small boutique hotels, in the past 1000 reviews none... More

This hotel was a real find. It's position is perfect with the most amazing view and the staff are exceptional. The food is wonderful but it is the generosity of spirit that makes it stand out in so many little ways like giving guests a 2 free bottles of water a day - what a change from the attitude of...
