“Paradise Revisited”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Have just returned from our second two week holiday at Villa Angela.
Must admit I was hesitant to return there so soon after an amazing holiday there last year. I thought that it might not live up to my memories of last year and my expectations as "they" say you should not go back as it is never the same. Well "they" were totally wrong as it was absolutley amazing again.
Katharine, Charlie, Mario, Ayda and all the wonderful staff welcomed us back and could not do enough to ensure that we had an amazing time again. In fact, in our opinion some things were even better than before. Such as the lovely breakfasts of hot and cold buffet. Bacon, eggs and sausage. Delicious fresh fruit (and some tinned), delicious crioisants, freshly baked rolls, cakes, pasteries and gateaux to die for whilst gazing over the stunning views of Mt. Etna. Some evenings the resturant did evening meals too and there was a good lunch menu and a snack menu where you could order anytime.

The rooms are comfortable with large sunny balconies where you can soak up the sun whilst admiring the views. This rooms are serviced by an exemplary team of maids. The shuttle bus provides an excellent service which is most welcome as the hotel is situation on a steep hillside.
Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff who are professional, polite, cheerful and obliging.

We certainly enjoyed the company of Jim Kerr's father and his friends whilst we were there and then Jim himself turned up for a few days.

Taormina is such a beautiful place and we can't wait to go back soon. So I will conclude by saying keep the sparkling beer cold ready for our third return to Paradise.

Thank you all for such a great holiday.

Villa Angela is a very pretty elegant hotel with the most wonderful views of Etna.All the rooms have large terraces with wonderful views of the coast and the volcano.Taormina town is gorgeous with beautiful buildings and churches and lovely shops although very expensive.My daughter and i had the most wonderful holiday at highly recommend Villa Angela .My only suggestions for improvement are tes and coffee making facilites in the rooms and as the terraces are so lovely with the never ever to be forgotten views , there should be better quality sunbeds as we had to use blankets and pillows to make the plastic sunbeds comfortable .

Room Tip: all rooms are nice

Wow! What a perfect place for us to stay on our honeymoon – such a beautifully presented hotel, and the most amazing views of Taormina! The team went over and above to make our stay special, so much so that we never wanted to leave! The Leonardo Da Vinci suite is a must if you are having a romantic holiday, very roomy and two beautiful balconies where you can enjoy a vino while the sun sets. Will definitely be back for an anniversary!

Comfortable clean rooms, fantastic views of Etna and the bay around Taormina. Lovely rooms with balcony, very friendly and hospitable staff and good breakfast. A free shuttle bus was available to everyone staying there. Maybe pool was little bit cold.

It's a slightly scary drive getting up to this place so once you arrive, you leave your car there & take their shuttle van back & forth to town. They charge a flat fee based on use & it's really inexpensive, trust me, you don't want to drive & park. All rooms have a beautiful view of the water & Mt Etna. The rooms are spacious with big terraces, that include tables & lounge chairs. You almost don't want to go into town. We were on the 2nd floor & those terraces have only a metal fence so you can see through them rather than the short walls some other floors had. The staff was very helpful & arranged a private driver to take us (4 all together) to Mt Etna & a winery for tasting & lunch. You can book a bus tour that does the same thing for the same price but who would want to do that. We had dinners up the hill from the hotel at a place they recommended. The lobby had free wifi & great views and there is a bar. The pool is beautiful & they serve drinks out there sometimes. Breakfast was great, lots of choices, more than the usual items. We'll come back here again.

Writing this as just waiting to leave the hotel. We spent 7 brilliant days here and don't want to leave. The hotel is very comfortablewith large rooms, lovely pool and great great views over to Etna. The staff are very helpful and can advise trips, buses, walks, restaurants etc. A really fantastic hotel and staff.

In May 2013, we stayed at Hotel Villa Angela as one of our stops on a celebratory trip for my daughter’s graduation from college. My family and I stayed there for one night and, I must say, the experience and attention to detail administered by this hotel made our trip exponentially more enjoyable. The rooms and bathrooms were very large, clean, and comfortable. Also, the showers were handicap accessible for those that may need it. Both our rooms had terraces that had a picturesque view of the sea, Mount Etna, and the quaint town of Taormina. It was gorgeous! The hotel has an efficient shuttle service that brings guests down to the city center every half an hour. The shuttle does have limited space and the time has to be reserved. There is also a nice-sized pool to relax in the sun. The terrace of the restaurant is equally as lovely. The city center of Taormina has great shopping, delicious restaurants, and a beautiful view of the water. Taormina is also a great location to do an excursion to Savoca, a neat town that contains some film sites from Coppola’s The Godfather: Part I.

Katharine at the hotel was a pleasure to work with right from the start. She made our stay just perfect by her willingness to accommodate our requests along with making sure that our time was enjoyable. I would not hesitate to return back to this hotel and look forward to doing so someday. We found it to be one of our favorite spots in all of Sicily!
