We loved our stay at Hotel Villa Carlotta- the service is attentive and helpful, the room was comfortable and beautiful. The pool was very pretty. The restaurant didn’t have any real vegan options (pizza without cheese etc). It’s 2020 and many people are now choosing a more healthy and environmentally conscious diet, this hotel could take this into account (perhaps some vegan mozzarella? Vegan arancini? More interesting salads?). Just a thought.

I have stayed in this Boutique hotel with my partner during our time in Taormina. The Hotel is just beautiful: every single detail seems to match perfectly with the surroundings and you can tell that passion is what define this place. The staff is so friendly, always ready to spoil us with particular attentions. The room was very clean and we just loved the design! The bright colors and the view from our private terrace was astonishing. We will definitely come back next year! Special thanks to Simona and Riccardo at reception and The chef at the restaurant which served us amazing Sicilian food!

My wife and I are returning from an 11th consecutive holiday stay at Hotel Villa Carlotta. We just wanted to highlight once again there is no better welcome than that one we experience at Hotel Villa Carlotta. We are greeted with such warmth and charm by such a professional team. HVC is full of history and character. All the rooms are different. The ones in the main house are large and glamorous and overlook the sea. We personally love to stay in one of their apartments in Via Bagnoli Croce, in Apt N.3 - on the top floor. It is a struggle to get there, especially after a nice glass of Nero d’Avola but once you access its very spacious and super private terrace we feel in paradise for a few days. Every effort is being made to make us feel special and the staff in the restaurant area (Mara, Alberto and Olga) always go out of their way to bring food which is often off the menu. Never come across such an accommodating staff. We have stayed in many hotels around the world but this is the one we like the most We cannot wait to make it our 12th stay next June. Ciao Joe & Veni Parrinello

Nice small authentic hotel, very clean, stunning terrace view. Breakfast and diner are on the terrace. Good breakfast with good variety day over day. Home Made Pastry. Diner with Siciliaan Kitchen was very good. Covid19 rules are well respected. Staff was very helpfull: good suggestions of Restaurants in the neighbourhood, arranging Taxi or boat excursions. Nothing was too much asked for the staff. Attractions like the ampfitheatre and the gardens, but also main Street of Taormina on walking distance. A Real ‘small luxury hotel of the world’...

We stayed here for a week and we absolutely loved it! The hotel is perfectly located with walking distance to everything around Taormina town. The rooms were very spacious and had a stunning sea view. We used the shuttle services to different beaches close to the hotel, it was much worth the price, €15-20 per person which include sun beds, parasol and the shuttle ride. The hotels staff was very friendly, Ricardo and Simona at the front desk were service minded and assisted with anything. The owner of the hotel was always happy to give recommendations and help, it made us feel right at home. Even due to the circumstance the hotel restaurant staff gave an amazing service at the breakfast. We would really recommend this hotel if coming to Taormina, this was just the experience we wanted. Thank you Villa Carlotta for making our stay and vacation wonderful it added so much value to our trip.
