Hotel Villa Angela
Ranked #7 of 87 Hotels in Taormina
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Hotel Villa Angela is perfect! Like many people i've been blown away by Taormina and this wonderfully historic place. Villa Angela is ideally placed to access both the historic churches, monasteries, ancient hill top villages and of course the very up-market town centre. As a holiday destination is covers everything you could want - sight seeing, shopping, sunbathing, beach and pool.

Our room was spotless, stylish and very well appointed....a quality way above what you might expect from a simple resort ...more like a posh city hotel...that is until you walk onto the balcony and are knocked out by perhaps one of the most dramatic views on the planet...looking down to the bay and up to Etna and Castelmano. Straight out of a bond movie [and apparently the Godfather!]

The staff are friendly, professional and helpful but still allow the privacy for you to enjoy your holiday. The breakfast was based on high quality local produce which suited me perfectly. [trying to eat healthily!]

cant recommend this hotel enough [i did manage to get a deal directly on their website which made it great value!]

i will be returning with the whole family next year!

Room Tip: all rooms have spectacular front view, higher up is nearer reception!

After a long day travelling to Sicily we arrived at the hotel to be greeted by one of the most welcoming and friendly hosts that we have ever met (Katherine), it was a joy and we felt wanted immediately, our tiredness seemed to wash away. Our room was stylish, large, clean and with the best balcony we have ever had, it was as big as the room and with a view that can only be described as breathtaking.

We were very lucky in our stay as there was food at the hotel 5 of the evenings that we were there. The food is lovely, evening and breakfasts. Fresh produce at both. Breakfast was especially nice with fruit, pastries and delicious cakes.

The location is great, the steps are plentiful but we really enjoyed climbing them, sometimes twice a day. Maybe not for the less active but as long as you are aware of them they are not a problem. Plus there is a bus from the hotel if required.

The staff are what sets this hotel even further apart from most, they are all wonderful and really made the difference. We could always have what we wanted when we wanted it, food, wine. snacks whatever.

If I could make 2 tiny suggestions they would be to improve the breakfast bags on the mornings of the early trips and to allow the curtains to stay closed to give the air conditioning a fighting chance as the sun is directly on the room 80 % of the day.

Fabulous!!!

A truly excellent hotel with exceptionally friendly staff the majority of which we were on first name terms within hours (we cannot mention all of them, but we are sure that Katherine will pass our message). Villa Angela has wonderful views of mount Etna, the sea, local villages and not forgetting blue sky! While you have an excellent choice of restaurants in Taormina, the food in the hotel is also of the highest quality.
Usually we don't travel to the same place twice (as there are so many places in the world to visit) but on this occasion, we will be returning again to Villa Angela.
We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary, the setting of the hotel is fantastic, it is quiet and yet just a 5 minutes drive to the centre of Taormina (the hotel has a very good shuttle service for this), there is also a bus stop just outside the hotel to explore other areas. If you feel energetic, we recommend to walk up to the next village Castelmola or walk down the steps (just over 500) down to Taormina. Whichever way: you will enjoy the experience.

We picked this hotel for the views, location and reviews of the service. From the moment we arrived to the time we left all the staff were absolutely fantastic, nothing seemed too much trouble even helping us to learn enough Italian to use in the restaurants in Taormina. The rooms were spotless and importantly the bed was very comfortable. Each morning we sat on the terrace eating a lovely breakfast with an incredible view of Mount Etna....stunning.
Being of an age where i was brought up with 80's music it was an added surprise to meet and chat with Jim Kerr during the week. Walikng down to Taormina takes about 10-15mins and if you dont fancy the walk the Hotel run a good mini bus service to/from Taormina for just 20 Euros for the week. We have already booked to go back to this amazing hotel in 2013... thank you to all the staff for such a wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: all rooms have a wonderful view of Mount Etna

Stayed for 5 nights in September,what a stunning location.Loved Taormina, a beautiful place with lots to do.The hotel itself was superb, the staff very friendly and helpful.We left at 6am to go to the airport and they gave us a bag of food and drink to take with us! As people have mentioned there is a shuttle bus into town but we preferred to walk, it's really not too far and it's a lovely walk.Would love to go back and would definitely stop at the hotel again.

Not long returned from our holiday at Villa Angela at Taormina .I agree with other reviews that the staff were excellent,very friendly and helpful.From reception to the mini bus staff,nothing was too much trouble . The hotel had superb views of Mount Etna and the trip up their was well worth it .The footsteps of the Godfather were also well worth a trip even if you are not interested in the film it was nice to see the Sicilian villages . I would also like to thank the Thomson rep LISA who was a great help ,nothing was too much trouble. Overall a great holiday ,always made better by friendly staff Thank You .
