A word to the wise: When choosing a hotel in Sicily, be wary of going by their star rating. It seems that stars there are handed out much like a teacher giving gold stars to her kindergarten students. I visited several of the hotels and many 4-star, and even 5-star hotels, do not live up to their expectation. In a... More

Villa Carlotta certainly deserves the high marks it receives from most reviewers. A lovely hotel, excellent service, great location. Wonderful views of the sea and Mount Etna from the top floor dining area. As others have mentioned, it's a little walk to Taormina (the town) but it's not really strenuous, just in keeping with the terrain (of the entire area)... More

We have just spend an amazing week at the outstanding Villa Carlotta with our family for our wedding in Taormina. The staff are as fantastic as the location, facilities and atmosphere..they cannot do enough for you and take great pride in making your time there as special as possible. Possibly the best hotel that we have ever stayed in..

Lovely hotel. Beautiful position with great views. Very friendly staff and good food. The rooms are really good, traditional decor but with all mod cons and great bathrooms. A good 10 min walk into Taormina ( which is fabulous) so make sure you're reasonable fit and healthy as though it's an easy walk, it's very hot during the peak summer... More

We stayed at Villa Carlotta during high season in Italy. We also came to italy with an almost 2 yr old with feeding issues. Let me start off by saying that I have traveled all throughout Europe, including Monte Carlo, Nice and St. Tropez. Villa Carlotta stands alone in terms of luxury and service. They literally fulfilled our every request.... More

At the beginning of August, we (two adults, two children aged 13 and 10) stayed at Villa Carlotta's sister, Villa Ducale and were lucky enough to be able to use the facilities and swimming pool at this wonderful hotel. The shuttle bus from Villa Ducale dropped us at the front door, we were very warmly greeted by the reception staff... More

We stayed here for 3 nights July 2013 (sorry for late review). We loved our stay & loved the staff. We actually were traveling from Croatia & our luggage never arrived with us to Italy.

Dear Docbig, thank you for your lovely review which we all enjoyed. I honestly disagree with you when you say that Villa Carlotta is "not far from the center but some uphill, etc..." ; by saying this you mean that you are not an expert traveller in Italy. Italy, which is the N.1 most visited country in the world, is... More
