Great hotel and lovely service. We had a lovely room with a terrace with great views and Mount Etna as a backdrop. Will definitely go again. Breakfast was fantastic! Lack of Wifi in the rooms was a bit disappointing. Trip down to Taormina is a must, and would advise going on the bus rather than drive !

Incredible view, great food, nice staff, decent value, would totally recommend. Now I have to write more because there is a 200 character minimum which seems rather arbitrary. Still, won't hold that against the hotel. Nice pool too. Just go already.

Everything about this hotel is perfect. A special mention to Adriana and her team who are just so welcoming, helpful and charming. We enjoyed a two week stay in July and had the best time. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the rooms are air conditioned and we were lucky enough to have a stunning view of Mount Etna from our... More

My wife stayed at Hotel Villa Sonia 2 weeks ago, we found the hotel was clean and tidy, with wonderful quirky furniture in the lounge and hallways. Food was great, breakfast had plenty of selection. Our room was bigger than I was expecting as we had one of the cheaper rooms, with an excellent aircon system, massive bathroom. It had... More

Great hotel set in the mountains above Taormina. Plenty of peace and quiet yet local restaurants in Castlemola in walking distance. Staff lovely and very helpful. Pool area intimate yet totally relaxing. Not overcrowded as a 'mature crowd' seems to stay here which means it's generally a very pleasant and calm atmosphere. Fabulous views of Etna from our balcony. Recommended

Fabulous hotel very quaint and charming - amazing views. In a small village but Taormina is close enough to get there is you want more than the sleepy village. Relax and recharge your batteries in this idyllic location.

We stayed here for a week, and are keen to return sometime. We had a view of Etna from our room which was spectacular. The whole experience was relaxed and the staff were very friendly, especially if you made the effort to try to speak Italian! The only thing that was a shame were the wasps that made eating on...
