Its a huge upgrade to perfect. Amazing place were you feel at home at the same time enjoy one of the most beautiful views in the world from your terrace.Everybody is so nice and super helpful, you don't have to worry about car parking everything is taken care of. The breakfast buffet is seven star gourmet.

A gorgeous boutique hotel with fantastic views and large rooms. It is well located to both the centre of the city and a walk down the steps to the beach Isola Bella. The staff at reception who welcome you with a drink on the gorgeous terrace are wonderful - so friendly and helpful. They provide you with a map, mark... More

We were looking for somewhere where we could relax while still being close enough to the centre of town to enjoy nights out. We couldn't have picked a better hotel. A 10-minute walk from the centre of town, this stylish, boutique hotel had... More

I've reviewed this remarkable hotel before, so I won't take up space reviewing again the kind, attentive staff, beautiful interiors and splendid pool and garden. But I just want to heap praise, if I haven't before, on their restaurant. We've eaten there several times on previous trips, and it has always been good, but over the years the owner, Andrea...

Despite difficult navigation in Taormina once your GPS has brought you to this hotel, you are taking care of. Valets park your car, and you are whisked to your room by the utmost professionals in hospitality. We had a junior suite and could not have been happier. Private terrace, view to the ocean and the finest of textiles. Evening dinner... More

It's a short walk to the town of Taormina which have some great restaurants and lots of shopping. The breakfasts were the best in our stays in Sicily,... More

We started off our vacation at the Villa Carlotta in Taormina. We had been traveling over 24 hrs. and were exhausted when we arrived. We were immediately greeted by the most wonderful front desk staff. We had a rental car and the hotel is on a hill overlooking the bay of Taormina. They took our keys, parked our car and... More

We have just returned from a 10 day stay at the Villa Carlotta. This was our fourth visit in the last four years and each time we have had a great time. If I had to choose one thing that makes this hotel special I would say that it is the people who run it from the ladies who look... More
