“You must come to Hotel Villa Angela”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

This is such a lovely hotel. Staff were so friendly and helpful when we arrived and throughout our stay. Breakfast was excellent and always a good variety. Recommend eating at the hotel on a Monday night and trying some of the fantastic lunch time dishes they provide, food was superb. Views were fantastic of Etna and the town below and at night it was just so picturesque. Standard and cleanliness of the hotel and rooms was outstanding. Taormina is a beautiful place and has certainly gone down as one of our favourite Italian destinations. Would highly recommend a visit and we will certainly be returning.

This was my second stay at the Villa Angela Hotel, and I was not disappointed again. Despite being towards the end of the season, it clearly never showed on any member of staff, for their dedication and professionalism were always paramount to make my time there extremely comfortable and blissful. The hotel is well situated, away from the buzz from the town. The views are truly breathtaking and all rooms face Mount Etna. The food is delicious and service top class, nothing is ever trouble. The breakfast has a great choice of various foods to please anyone's palate. Lunch was equally the same, and when diner was on, it was a feast of Sicilian food. Nothing better than having a meal on the terrace while being wrapped into the wonderful fragrances from the stunning garden. For those who do not yet know, yes Taormina is built on the mountain face, and the hotel is perched nearly on top of the town, hence the magnificent views and peace. However, the hotel provides an excellent shuttle service, all day and well into the evening.
I would recommend anyone to stay at the Villa Angela.

Room Tip: All rooms face Etna, so it does not really matter were you are in the hotel.

We absolutely loved this beautiful hotel and highly recommended it.
All rooms have amazing views of Etna and the beach Giardini Naxos.
The sunset on Mt Etna is so romantic, and also the night view is very very beautiful.
The staff are friendly, professional and helpful (Katherine and all other staffs !), always with a smile.
Breakfast is so good, with nice local produce and of course with really good cappuccino.
Taormina is a very beautiful town, but there are so many tourists in the centre.
So we found that this hotel location was peaceful, calm and cool.
We will return.

Thank you, Jim !!

Room Tip: All rooms with nice views of Etna & sea.

Upon arriving at Villa Angela I was totally smitten with this beautiful hotel. Myself and my boyfriend were warmly greeted at the hotel reception area upon arrival and provided with all information we needed to know about our stay for the week ahead. It was my first holiday away with my boyfriend and what a perfect choice we made in choosing this hotel! Our suitcases arrived in our hotel room before we did ourselves and upon opening the doors to our balcony we were greeted with the most magnificent view of Mount Etna and surrounding area. On day two of our holiday getting ready for a nice meal out my boyfriend got down on one knee on our hotel balcony and proposed (and of course i said yes) i couldn't think of a more perfect, intimate, romantic place to do it! We informed our wonderful rep Lisa of our exciting news and that night a member of staff from the hotel knocked on our door with a bottle of Prosecco on ice and two flutes! The staff were very friendly and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. Going down to breakfast each morning was a treat and a perfect way to start the day! sitting on the terrace overlooking the pool area with the views of Etna just took my breath away! there were many choices of breakfasts on display from cooked breakfasts to the freshest fruit and a selection of fruit juices to the frothiest cappuccinos. The hotel was spotlessy clean throughout and staff always had a smile on their faces. I would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff and our rep Lisa who made our stay at Villa Angela such a special one. Unfortunately a week wasn't long enough and as soon as we have saved enough money we will surely be returning. So its not farewell it see you soon and by that time i will be a Mrs!

Room Tip: They are all facing a perfect view so take your pick

What a fantastic place! Staff were so helpful, accomodating and friendly. Breakfast was a delight -serve yourself from a great selection of roasted veg, cheese + cold meats, eggs, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, pastries, breads, fresh fruit, yoghurt, lots of tea options, a variety of fruit juices -and really good coffee. The room was lovely, cleaned daily, bed comfy, and the view from our veranda was breath-taking.
We found all the staff to be very attentive and they gave good information on what to do and where to go in the area, and also how to get there -and back.
I have to mention their spinach and ricotta ravioli with pistacio pesto. You really have to try this! The Ravioli Club {formed during this visit} recommend it. Seriously wonderful -a treat for the tastebuds. I will return.

This is the pilgrimage Simple Minds fans make as the hotel is owned by the singer JIm Kerr. Stayed for 3 nights last November as part of a joint 40th birthday trip. Hotel is about 45 mins from Catania airport and taxi booked through hotel was waiting for us. Upon arrival at Villa Angela were met by extremely friendly manager Charlie and front desk has some SImple Minds memorabilia around .

Rooms are very spacious and all have large terrace with incredible views towards Mount Etna . In my room found happy birthday note signed by JIm and signed photo from the band which was nice touch. My mate also found the same in his room.

Didn't get to use pool or sunbathe due to season but imagine it would be amazing here in summer. Staff here made our few days so special and couldn't do enough for us. Other reviewers say the
same about the staff and it really is true, JIm has a team to be proud of here.

Shame restaurant was only open on Monday night when we were there as food was fantastic. On other nights went to nearby Saracino restaurant up the hill and the other into Taormina itself.

Taormina is a beautiful little town with great shops, chic restaurants and bars and the best ice creams ever!. Don't take shuttle down, walk up the hill past the Saracino before taking path down into town as views are amazing over the town and the Greek theatre which is worth a visit too. Would love to see Simple Minds play in there which they have in the past!. Near here are some lovely public gardens which are really nice to relax in.

Taormina is an expensive place so expect to pay a bit more for a drink etc but don't let that deter you from going as you won't regret it. I will return. Cheers JIm.

Room Tip: All rooms have amazing views of Etna and down into Giardini Naxos
