“Wonderful, relaxing hotel. Luxurious, comfortable and very slick.”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

We stayed three nights last week and thoroughly enjoyed being at this charming hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and nicely furnished, our room had a fantastic view over the sea, gardens and pool. The service is very friendly and helpful and above all slick - all our needs were met and there was always someone to help, whether handing out fresh towels at the pool, bringing drinks or anything else you needed. The food is excellent, particularly the breakfasts enjoyed on the roof terrace with fabulous views. It includes a great range of fresh local fruit, pastries, cheese, meats and cooked items - setting you up very well for the day. We also ate dinner here twice and although not cheap the food is delicious with great fresh seafood and meat. We found it a very relaxing place to stay and would love to return.

This hotel, situated on a hillside in beautiful Taormina. It is a gem of a hotel within walking distance of the town and shopping areas. You can walk to the beach also, but the roads are very narrow and there are no sidewalks. If vehicles are coming and going it can get a bit hairy.
Back to the hotel, the accomodations were excellent and the breakfast that is included is absolutely spectacular. They had cheeses, fresh fruit, stuffed vegetables, meats, breads and incredible pastries. It was by far the best "continental breakfast" ever.
My friends and I took a cooking class and it was a blast. The hotel chef was our teacher.
I highly recommend Hotel Villa Carlotta.

Room Tip: My cousin had a room with two floors that was very special.

Thanks to Riccardo, Simona and Natalie our stay at the Villa Carlotta was perfect. We pretty much tried it all. Two nights in the apartment, six in the Villa apartment and one in 101. It was a great home base for us with lots of help from our new friends. The location, accommodations, food, size were all just what we were looking for. Thanks so much, Adele & Tom

This is a fantastic hotel! The staff was accommodating and had fun joking with them. The breakfast and dinner was superb. The view of the ocean and Mount Etna (with snow and the lava flow) were spectacular.

Although the hotel is beautiful, the service is exceptional. From the moment you step on the property all of your needs are satisfied. The valet parking works splendidly, the front desk makes you feel wanted, and the dining room exceeds expectation. The breakfasts are more than just breakfasts, well displayed in a beautiful atmosphere. We didn't expect to have two dinners on the property during our three night stay, but we enjoyed the first so we came back.
Our room was beautiful. It was a suite with a view of the sea. There were three of us and the third party enjoyed some privacy within the suite. We can't wait to get back!
