Stayed a week in this lovely, relaxing hotel When we arrived we found our room only had a Juliet balcony, our fault, we hadn't specified a preference. I asked the lovely Fulvia at reception if it was possible to have a room with a terrace to sit on and we were moved, no fuss, she just wanted us to be happy. All the staff without exception were extremely helpful and friendly. Beautiful stepped garden full of orange and lemon trees and gorgeous flowers and wonderful smells leading to the pool area and what a view........the sea and Mount Etna as a backdrop. We have stayed in quite a few different hotels around Europe, especially Italy and the breakfast was the best we've ever seen. So much choice. Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. Thank you everyone at Villa Belvedere for making our stay so magical.
