“Breathtaking Views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

We stayed here for six nights in a standard room and if our room was the "worst" category type at this beautiful hotel, the suites must be out of this world as we were thrilled with our room, which was a good size, with wrought iron beds, Sicilian furniture and decor. The bathroom had a wc, bidet and bath with overhead shower and we had a large terrace with table, chairs and sun lounges with stunning views of Mt Etna, the coast and Taormina town below. Our room and all other public/communal areas of Villa Angela were kept spotlessly clean and the attention to detail at this Sicilian gem is outstanding. Breakfasts were very tasty with a wide range of choices and the one lunch we had was superb. The shuttle bus service to and from town was crucial to us and is partly why we chose this hotel as I am disabled and a wheelchair user; although we felt it would be more attractive to potential guests to include this service as complimentary, especially as the charge is so nominal. We found all staff to be extremely kind and accommodating-we did encounter a couple of problems during our stay but rest assured, these were dealt with quickly and professionally and so did not mar our holiday in any way. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would return-we loved it!

always dream big as they can come true like my dream to visit Jims Hotel Villa Angela. I snuck in a night ahead of a Sicily tour but this night was the highlight of Sicily. From the moment we checked in, to our beautiful room and balcony view we were very impressed. They acknowledged my 50th birthday and even though Jim wasn't on hand to sing to me it was a great memory and dream come true. The buffet breakfast in the morning was excellent and take time to visit the beautiful cave church above the hotel. I think Taormina is the prettiest town and with views of Mt Etna and the Mediterranean it is hard to beat. Only trouble is once you have experienced this hotel you want to go back. Staff are very welcoming and helpful too. Didn't use the pool but it did look very inviting!!

Room Tip: I believe all rooms have a great view but just ask when making the booking

Just spent a week at Villa Angela, Beautiful view, excellent food and very friendly and efficient staff. Very helpful with car hire and suggestions of what to see. The shuttle bus into Taormina was very useful, especially as I have difficulty walking and the roads are `a little steep!` As mentioned in other reviews the art displayed is beautiful, distictive and local. Only difficulty was in motivating oneself beyond lazing around on the balcony or beside the pool.

Room Tip: I would think that all rooms are well equipped and have stunning views. As there is a lift they are...

We spent a fantastic week at Villa Angela and can't fault it at all. The view from our balcony was breath-taking, the staff were so friendly, even the cleaners - special mention to Santina (no 1) and Elisa who taught us Italian during our stay. The hotel also provided Gluten-free pasta and bread for my partner. Highly recommend a stay at VA :)

Just back from a wonderfully relaxing return visit to Villa Angela.
As everyone says, the friendly staff and the views make this jewel of a hotel so special!
The excellent variety of breakfast dishes is also always a favourite of mine and we give our sincere apologies to the staff for usually being last to leave the restaurant with it's breathtakiing views...
Katherine and all the staff did everything to ensure we had the best time possible and even arranged a lift for us to and from the Al Saraceno up the hill as my Mother has walking difficulties.
Even the dramatic thunder and lightning floorshow one night was a bonus!!
Hopefully, we'll be back next year...

The decor of Hotel Villa Angela is a glorious assault on the senses. The beautifully displayed pieces of art, the lovely planting in the gardens and the comfort of the villa is a pleasure. A wonderful view of mount Etna with the most amazing cloud formations and dramatic skies is ever captivating. All the staff were friendly, interested in our welfare but discreet. Charlie, Katharine, Clara and the team were thoughtful, delighful and efficient. They were able to help us plan our wine tasting trips with Salvo who was always punctual, immaculate but gently humerous. We can recommend a great restaurant, delicious food and a good wine list, with friendly and knowledgeable staff, down in the town - Le Tavernetta.

Just back from four wonderful nights at Villa Angela. Absolutely magical - any view that has the mediterranean sea and mount Etna from your balcony has got to be amazing! All the staff very friendly as you would expect - and even in October it was still in the mid 70s, so warm enough to get some lengths in in the pool. We arrived late the first night so Katharine was kind enough to book us a table at the Al Saraceno restaurant just up the road.... And the owner even came to pick us up!

Spaghetti agilo olio e pepperoncino for lunch and a glass of rosé - perfect. Free wifi terrific with a strong signal. And the room cleaning ladies loved my bad attempts at singing opera in the corridor (apologies to any other guests trying to get some kip!)

We will be back....

Room Tip: The hotel is built into the hillside so every room has essentially the same amazing view....
