We travelled in August with our 4 year old son. We were looking for somewhere that met our luxury standards and was also child friendly. We chose Taormina hotel Villa Carlotta very much influenced by the reviews on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. The minute we arrived we knew we chose the right hotel. We were greated by Olga, who had our luggage and car taken care of straight away, and as we were early escorted us upstairs to rooftop terrace where we were warmly greated by Alberto and the chef & staff and were given complimentary drinks (Prosecco) and pastries.
When we got into our room, more than a half an hour early, we found the room to be huge with 2 terraces overlooking the pool and a fantastic ocean view. Firstly as has been said by others the staff are what make Villa Carlotta special. We must say that truly all the staff we met, the bar staff, restaurant staff, cleaners, chef and reception staff were all totally professional and genuinely warm. The staff made our son feel very special but this is we observed the genuinely warm Villa Carlotta way. The residence is charming and comfortable. Our super chic suite had my essential tea making facilities, with a large terrace with sun loungers table and chairs and a bath you could truly sink into.
The pool area was a major plus with our son and was totally clean and comfortable and there was always availability with loungers etc. there is also a bar by the pool where you can have lunch. Taormina is a totally romantic place and the breakfast area at the top of the residence has truly romantic views and a wide quality food selection. Thank you Mara, Alberto, Simona, Nathalie, Olga and Ricardo and everyone at Villa Carlotta. We and our little Angel had a great stay and are looking forward to seeing you all again.
