Our first trip to Sicily and we were seeking advice from everywhere. Villa Schuler came onto the radar via Tripadvisor and friends that stayed a year ago.....thank you, what a find!
It is classically perched on the side of a cliff with the quintessential coastal view both from your room and the breakfast area. The reception staff are excellent, the rooms are clean and a good size, and breakfast was fabulous, not buffet but served to order. The gardens are a work of art in themselves and beautifully maintained, including the large team of tortoises that live in the pond, it all just works and we would highly recommend the hotel.
On a more general note of travelling with a car in Sicily.........wherever you stay ensure that you have off street parking within the hotel. For example Villa Schuler has limited lock up garages with valet parking at a small fee of 15 Euro a day and with a hire car you need to reduce the chance of damage as much as possible. Never leave your car parked on the street with anything visible in the car and this applies across the world of course, but Sicily is another story. Even the locals will warn you about Palermo and it especially applies to tourist hire cars.
So back to the main review.....summing up Villa Schuler is really the best hotel to stay in Taormina, it is the sort of hotel that makes you remember why you got married.
