Stay here. We did and we loved it
What a lovely Taormina hotel with great, friendly staff and fantastic service.
We had the Garden suite which had its own
sitting room. It was very relaxing just chilling/reading in the late afternoon having out own private space to relax in. The roof top terrace for breakfast with views of Etna was stunning. Breakfast itself could have been a banquet! Plenty of choice for everyone. The hotel itself is located about a 10-15 amble from the main tourist area of Taormina which makes for a pleasant stroll back after dinner. It wouldn’t be a fair review if I didn’t point out the bad parts. The air con in the room didn’t appear to work (not cold enough for me) and the shower head was to close to the wall!
If you want good restaurant recommendations, speak with Riccardo. He recommended 2 excellent venues. 1 slight niggle was the other recommendation was exceptionally poor. When guests are staying in as Hotel of this quality and staying in a suite, one expects the staff to have an understanding of guest requirements (having explained where we ate the previous night).
If we return to Taormina, we will certainly stay in Hotel Villa Carlotta!
