“A Room with a View”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

The Martorana family have run this charming hotel for generations.
The views from rooms and the restaurant are quite exceptional.
We have never enjoyed breakfast so much - views of the bays,the open sea, Mount Etna and the picturesque Taormina are breathtaking.
The family and other staff are delightful and most friendly.
We arrived very late in the night and Domenico, the acting night porter,went out of his way to assist in every way. Anticipating our hunger there was delicious food in our room.
The patriarch of the family, Salvatore, as well as his daughter and niece, were charming to us.
The centre of Taormina, as well as the beautiful botanical gardens, are very close.
We recommend Villa Paradiso most highly.

Lets be clear I'm no travel writer. My dear husband says I know nothing, but forgets I knew enough to marry him! So, here goes in condensed wording. There is no need to book 5* this trip - trust me. This delightful hotel is homely & quirky, all the Martorana family run the hotel efficiently and their night-porter of 32 years service, Biagio makes fabulous Campari orange - my must-have 2012 summer drink – and the charming Mr Martorana is often found sitting quietly in the lounge keeping a watchful eye, making us feel part of their family. The stunning view at breakfast can almost make you forget to eat. The rooms are very clean, with fluffy towels, good quality, crisp bedlinen, inexpensive 24 hr room service – and you really don't need a room safe, because everything IS safe! We arrived in darkness on 26 April, and stayed in this perfect room, with thousands of lights twinkling below us. The morning view simply took our breath away – truly spectacular - cross my heart. And, Taormina will seduce you! Hopefully, I have convinced you to come to this island, to this town, to this hotel and to stay in this room. God knows, you need the break. But what do I know? I'm not Judith Chalmers!

Room Tip: Most rooms face the sea and Mount Etna, with small balconies, where you can enjoy hours looking at t...
