Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Everything you could wish for …. and more! Feeling a little ‘homesick’ for this wonderful hotel to be honest! They treated us SO well - from arrival to departure and the property itself is a complete stunner, old-style grandeur in a boutique format with rooms on several levels facing the see. Sumptuous gardens surround the lower levels and the pool terrace is tastefully appointed with bar and restaurant tables on one side. Breakfast buffet is exceptionally varied and poolside lunch menu is small with daily specials. Special mention to lovely Reception Managers Joshua and Angela who helped us with such charm, and Pietro - and of course Rita at breakfast / lunch who was just a delight to see each day. If ever a hotel deserves to be visited again (and again!) … it’s this one!! Thank you, everybody!! from The Batemans

Hotel's Favourite
We are in the middle of our stay at this wonderful boutique hotel . We booked through the English tour operator Citalia and it is just as they described. Location excellent , a few mins walk from the bustling town of Taormina . We have a junior suite with a balcony , the customer service here is wonderful. We have been given help booking our tours , the suite is spacious with tea /coffee . Buffet breakfast is very good. Pool is lovely with a fab view of the bay area and the pool bar staff very friendly Everyone who works here is friendly and cannot help enough. This is a family run boutique hotel just the kind of place we love to stay .We cannot recommend enough.

Dear Guests, Thank you for your really lovely, appreciative words. We are delighted that we were able to offer you the accommodation with a personal sun-terrace, with comfortable seating, etc., and of course the spectacular views we are so fortunate as to be able to enjoy, always, and that you were so happy in, simply because we want all our guests to be happy here and  to enjoy their stay and we do everything we can to make this happen. Thank you too for your mention of our truly dedicated staff who are courteously friendly with guests and so important in ensuring that everything works as it should. Reception staff are very knowledgeable and always pleased to help  about decisions on where to visit, depending on what people are looking for.  There is so much of interest to see here, in Taormina itself and also both nearby and further afield, but as you discovered, easily reachable on a well-organized, day,  or a half day trip. It would be a pleasure to welcome you back, whenever you decide to return, Kindest regards, Cristian Pècaut, Manager.

Villa Belvedere is a charming place in the beautiful village of Taormina. The hotel has a truly unique welcoming atmosphere. At Villa Belvedere, you can enjoy your breakfast with an amazing view on the bay, delicious healthy lunches by the pool, and taste some Sicilian cocktails in the beautiful gardens or the panoramic terrasse. The hotel also has an amazing gym with all the equipment needed to stay fit. The whole staff is lovely, always there to answer any request. They gave us great recommendations about where to eat and what to do around Taormina, and information about tours on the Etna volcano and visiting other nearby villages. Thank you for the wonderful time. We will definitely come back!

Being a couple looking for a dream place to spend one week or more with a five stars service, this is the place to stay. Hôtel Villa Belvédère has the most beautiful view in Taormina, and you will enjoy it with ultra-personalized service all day. From an incredible breakfast to lunch at the swimming pool and end your day with a bit of a gym, all with the view of the sea, this is heaven. By night you can enjoy a fabulous cocktail made by Marcos and go out to enjoy the unique atmosphere of Taormina.

Last trip we stayed by the sea- but ate above. The Belvedere hangs on a cliff in a very quiet part of Taormina. Beautiful room with balcony overlooking the sea. This joint "ain't cheap" but there is a real feeling of luxury. The buffet breakfast- on the terrace or in a bright and airy room- is outstanding. Watch for the cannoli - made fresh. Sitting around the large pool- often crowded- still is restful with no blaring music and people talking in hushed tones. Very helpful reception and kind staff- listen to their restaurant recommendations A very solid choice

Dear Guest, Thank you for having awarded us with top,  Trip Advisor rating, all five out of five points  - and for  your much appreciated and interesting description of Villa Belvedere as well as  for your praise for the excellent, diverse breakfast items freshly prepared each day by our resident pastry-chef,  Gaetano. Our reception staff whom you also kindly mention, are in fact very knowledgeable and are always courteously friendly and any recommendations they make are based on experience and the related opinions of many previous guests. As you say, the hotel is in a quiet spot, with very beautiful, unimpeded views, because on the side facing  the sea, the land slopes down towards the coastline, but we are only five minutes walk or so, from pretty, very popular Taormina town centre and all the attractions to be enjoyed there.  Amid  our very well cared for gardens and overlooking the blue sea,  is our swimming pool, that you liked, where a tall palm tree grows on a tiny Island in the centre, and nearby is our open-air, lunch-time, bar-restaurant where our guests can find drinks, snacks and ice-creams all day long as well as a variety of appetising lunch ideas  and good wines, all at very acceptable prices.  Thank you again for mentioning all these special memories you have gathered together & found time to write about and publish and we hope to enjoy the pleasure of your company again on a future occasion. Kindest regards, Cristian Pėcaut,  Manager

A stunning hotel, the rooms are wonderful, clean and spacious. We had a room with a terrace overlooking the bay, could not be better. The staff are brilliant, always ready to help. Rita was a dream, so charming and helpful with a smile to die for. I can highly recommend this hotel, just 5 mins walk in to town and next to the lovely Municipal Gardens of Taormina. So sad to be home, missing Taormina already, but back to the Villa Belvedere next year----"-Simply Paradise"

Dear Guest, Many thanks for your kind recommendation and for the full five out of five Trip Advisor "points" you have awarded to us because you enjoyed your holiday here, and the truly sublime views from your room and personal sun-terrace overlooking the Bay of Naxos, just beyond our beloved gardens.  My dedicated staff, including Rita, of course,  say thank you, too, for your much appreciated mention of them,  you are right, they are always courteous and friendly and very willing to help whenever necessary. We are indeed very fortunate with the position we occupy, just far enough, some five minutes, from the busy and very popular, town centre for us to be to be calm and relaxing, but near enough to be there with a short stroll, either by road, or through the intriguing public botanic gardens that you mention, with much to see en route.  As you know, our often returning guests are always very, very  welcome, whenever they choose to return, and for us it is always a delight to hear from our old friends again and to know we will soon be seeing them here at Villa Belvedere and doing our best, as we always do, to ensure that once more, being back here will all seem simply Paradise.  Kindest regards, Cristian Pècaut. Manager.

A paradise where it is good to come back, even after 3 years in a row I never get tired of this breathtaking view. A superb garden with nice swimming pool, spacious room and extremely clean. A very attentive, smiling and professional welcome, year after year it is good to see the same personal Gentillissima Sign. Rita who remembers you and is always very caring. If you are lucky enough to go to Taormina I recommend without hesitation to stay.

Dear Guest, What great pleasure it gives us, here at Villa Belvedere, when our very welcome, often returning guests, like yourself, take time to write reviews, awarding us the full five out of five Trip Adviser "stars" and complimenting us, after each visit, rediscovering happy memories of previous visits and always delighted to find our same staff members remembering them and happy to greet them again and welcome them back to stay of however long they decide to stay, just a day or two, or longer, if they have some time free and feel the need to return to pretty Taormina and our welcoming, comfortable, Villa Belvedere. Our devoted teams of staff are all important to us and we care very much about their wellbeing and over the years we have become a large family unit, working well together with the same goal, that is ensuring the perfect holiday in the perfect surroundings, where it is a great pleasure to make our guests happy to return to stay here and also to return, again and and again, just like family friends. Rita, who has been with us more than twenty years now, was very pleased that you mentioned her and sends greetings and best wishes back to you too. Thank you again for your very kind attention and we simply look forward to next time you would like to stay. Kindest regards, Cristian Pècaut, Manager.

A very welcoming staff greeted us with Prosecco after our drive from Ortigia. All staff we encountered were friendly, helpful and genuine. Small parking lot for cars available but staff will take care of the car. Just pull off the road one-way road, and block the sloped driveway, and walk down to the lobby entrance. Someone will get the bags, take the car, etc…A wonderful view of mount Etna, pool and coastline from our room. Modern bathroom, an absolutely excellent breakfast. Take advantage of their nice pool with gorgeous views. 10-15 minutes walk to main pedestrian areas. Property has a lift, well functioning air conditioning and english TV channels. Overall, a very nice stay!

Dear Guests, It gives us great satisfaction to read that you enjoyed everything at Villa Belvedere, from the Prosecco greeting, onwards, because of course, this is exactly what we aim for. We want all our guests to enjoy staying here, and to be completely relaxed and and feel completely at home here, so all our staff, from the parking valets, onward, are very important and your kind comments will be passed on to them, too. The modern shower-bathroom in your room,  that you were pleased to find, is because we care very much about our guests’ wellbeing too, and while it feels romantic to stay in a century old, typical Sicilian family villa, over the years certain important renovations have been very discreetly carried out so as to ensure that while the ambience here is still of the early 1920s, the general comfort  and convenience, is much more of this day and age. Our very generous and varied, buffet breakfasts, are very popular now, and in fact every morning our resident pastry chef, displays his best and most appetizing, sweet and savory breakfast items, as well as certain dishes on request and naturally all the traditonal  foods that guests like to find . We are very fortunate in the area occupied by Villa Belvedere, with the truly splendid natural views, including mighty Mount Etna, that you mention, a little to our south, but far enough away to be able to observe the more or less daily drama  in perfect safety from Taormina, and we too, do our part  in our surroundings, by caring  for our beloved gardens, that form a perfect frame to the wonderful contributions of kind Mother Nature, all round us. While I thank you sincerely for the four out of five, Trip Advisor “points” that you award to us, I must admit to asking myself, what was missing to be able to receive the full five, on which TA bases their recommendation for their readers of the hotels that they consider the best ones in the area, or was it a slip of the pen, perhaps, and you really meant to say five ?   I am joking, of course, but you can always alter the four to a five, if you would like  to.  Thank you either way, for a truly rewarding revue and we very much hope to welcome you back for a holiday at Villa Belvedere,  in the not too distant future. Kindest regards, Cristian Pècaut, Manager.

Fabulous views, really helpful staff, breakfasts were good. We had room 11- private garden, 2 bathrooms, kitchenette. Low doorways - bumped my head twice. High rating on TripAdvisor well deserved. Try not to bring a self driven car into Taormina

Dear Guest, Many thanks for your very much appreciated review, where you first mention the truly beautiful views, that can be enjoyed from all the sea-facing part of the hotel  and also for your neat description of the particular junior suite that you stayed in and for having  kindly thought  of mentioning our devoted staff, too, who are, as you say, really helpful and always courteously friendly and it gives me pleasure to know that you enjoyed our generous and very varied breakfasts,  where you will have found and enjoyed the excellent freshly prepared and served, appetizing items, both sweet and savory,  that are the work of our resident pastry cook. You are also right when you say that a car is not necessary for visiting pretty Taormina, because once you are here, practically everywhere, beauty spots, famous  places of interest, the very attractive shops and boutiques and all the very good bars and restaurants to be found in Taormina, are easily reached on foot, with a short, relaxing stroll from our gates.   Thank you again for your time and positive comments and also for the full five out of five, Trip Advisor ‘stars’, that help to keep us high on the list of the hotels, most recommended by T.A., to stay in. Whenever you might decide to return, please rest assured that you would be very welcome, indeed. Kindest regards, Cristian Pècaut, Manager.

We don’t normally review our experiences, but after our one week stay at this exquisite hotel, we felt obliged to praise this boutique little gem. Our family of four, (2 adult children) were fortunate enough to reside in room 15, Villa Rigamonti. The view of the bay and panoramic Mount Etna is unparalleled. The Villa is very well appointed, the beds/pillows are exceptionally comfortable. The hotel’s website does not do it justice, the cleanliness, beauty and character of this boutique hotel is underestimated. The overriding aspect that made the stay so enjoyable was the superb service and attention to detail. We had some unusual requests ( calculator and needed to borrow a tie for an impromptu interview) ALL the staff, from the owners to receptionists went out of their way to help and make us feel welcomed and special. It is a shame we only had one week at this beautiful hotel. We cannot recommend Hotel Belvedere enough. If/when we revisit Taormina, we will not hesitate to return to our little piece of paradise.

Dear Guests, What a delightful beginning to your much appreciated review. Thank you so much, apart from our being really super-pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Belvedere, it makes us all feel that we are getting everything right, as of course we do our best to do for all our guests – although we can take no credit for the spectacular views that kind Mother Nature has seen fit to entrust to us, they do however have the effect on us, of making us want to live up to them . Our gracious, Villa Rigamonti situated among our beloved gardens, where you chose to stay, will have been perfect for your family – guests always say that it is like having a home away from home and many return time and again, as we hope, all going well, you will do, too. Very kind of you to mention our beds and pillows, thank you, as we are rather proud of the top quality types of everything that we use all over Villa Belvedere. Absolute cleanliness everywhere, is of maximum importance, I do agree with you and we are very fortunate in our teams of dedicated staff, who keep it that way, and also manage to be courteously friendly, always with our guests, as do our excellent, very knowledgeable, reception staff, as you discovered, too. I am also very pleased that we were able to help out with the items you needed, just then, whenever we can, we do do this. A last thank you too, for not only having taken time to write such a rewarding review, but also for having awarded us all five out of five Trip Advisor ‘stars’, on every account, as TA adds up all those that we receive and the total helps us stay high among the hotels that they feel confident in recommending to their readers. Please rest assured that if and when you do return, you will be truly welcome to come back to your ‘little piece of paradise’ Kindest regards, Cristian Pècaut, Manager.
