We stayed at this lovely hotel this summer. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. Our room had lovely views and the dining room had spectacular views of Mount Etna and the sea and surrounding towns The breakfast were some of the best we have had. There were also lots of nice touches. The owner appeared most days and spoke with us, the mini bar was refreshed each day with water and soft drinks free of charge, there was a welcoming drink in the bar on arrival and a lovely bottle of perfume as we left. It was a very short walk into town and lovely restaurants too. We ate in the hotel a couple of evening and the food was delicious. Highly recommend this Hotel
Under the heading, "Perfect Boutique Hotel," Hotel Villa Carlotta is, in my opinion, Number 1. Villa Carlotta is an oasis where luxury meets comfort in every way. The setting is gorgeous (those views!), the decor (rich, vibrant colors) is gorgeous, the rooms are beautiful (our Junior Suite was absolutely lovely and so comfortable), service is at once warm and professional, and the food and beverage offerings are out of this world. If I could live there, I would!
We just spent 6 days at Villa Carlotta Apt. 2. Spacious clean and updated apartment 2 minute walk from the hotel. Great location; excellent breakfast The best part of this boutique hotel is undoubtedly the staff. Beginning with our arrival and complimentary glasses of wine, they were extremely helpful in organizing tours, making dinner reservations and tracking down my daughter’s lost suitcase. The entire staff was delightful to work with; so very personable. Special shout out to the front desk staff and especially Lima in the restaurant. Would highly recommend; the apartment perfect for family or 2 couples.
I've been dreaming about Villa Carlotta throughout lockdown and now we're back to find it's even better. The rooftop restaurant has been re-modelled beautifully, they've added a gym and the welcome from the wonderful staff is warmer than ever. I'm addicted!
Everything about our stay at Hotel Villa Carlotta was amazing! The staff are absolutely wonderul. So helpful from the time you book, until check out. They assisted with booking cars, transport to/from airport. Gave us amazing restaurant recommendations & helped book prior to our stay, since it was high season & Ferragosto week. We had a junior suite with the most stunning terrace & views. A small table & chairs + 2 loungers, beautiful canopy with vines & flowers and stunning ocean views. The bathroom was fabulous! 2 sinks, marble, big shower. The property overall is just beautifully designed. The restaurant/breakfast room is roof top, open air windows with stunning ocean views & view of Etna. Lovely breakfast. We happened to meet the hotel owners at the beach! They were lovely, Andrea booked us dinner reservations at their sister hotel high in the cliffs, Villa Ducale, that was extraordinary! From the views, to service , to food - a most memorable experience. He gave us great recommendations & even helped us book a restaurant in Catania. We are fairly certain he had a hand in our exceptional front row beach chairs & lunch reservations with amazing tables at the lidos for the remainder of our stay, as well! The personal family touch, so welcomed on vacation was felt by the entire team at Hotel Villa Carlotta. There is shuttle service to the beaches/lidos. Hotel is walkable to the town center. This hotel is one you'll want to go back to again & again.…
We had the best time at Villa Carlotta. The room had the most amazing view of the sea and they had a really delicious buffet every morning for breakfast. The hotel is very unique and one of a kind. The pool was quiet and relaxing. The staff were all so kind and especially Antonella who has a wonderful personality and was so helpful every time we had questions. We adored her! And they even had a little breakfast bag for us when we had to leave at 5 am! I would recommend Villa Carlotta to anyone coming to Taormina.
Villa Carlotta is simply a gorgeous hotel. Guests are treated with utter respect by any of the several workers. The front desk people are beyond personable and kind. They truly make you feel like a family member! They always try to support guests in every way. The maids of our floor, Donatella and Rosaria, were absolutely fabulous: always ready to accommodate any requests, and make you feel a welcomed guest. The restaurant (breakfast, lunch and dinner) serves great food, and the people there (Alberto, Hylaima, and their colleague) were incredible! The building is one of the most beautiful in Taormina, and the views are truly amazing! From cleaning to services, from courtesy to food, Villa Carlotta is a wonderful place! Thank you so much for making our and our family’s stay unforgettable! See you next time!…
We had previously stayed in Villa Carlotta in 2011 and decided to bring friends to the hotel on our first overseas holiday together post Covid. We were not disappointed. All of the small touches we enjoyed before are still carried out by friendly and enthusiastic staff under the close attention of the owner. The 3rd floor restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and Etna is stunning and the food and service excellent. The hotel is well located a short distance from the centre of Taormina with its many excellent restaurants. Altogether a memorable experience and one to be recommended.
Fantastic Hotel in one of the best locations in Taormina. Excellent and very friendly staff/management. The hotel has many beautiful vieuws over the sea & Taormina. You should try the restaurant on the rooftop floor with a splended view at the sea and a top restaurant with local food. Very nice and clean rooms with airconditioning Specially thanks to the lovely Antonella (Priscilla) Presley. Thank you for your warm welcome. Kind regards from The Netherlands
Beautiful boutique hotel with an outstanding staff!! The views are amazing , rooms are quaint, and the hotel itself is in a prime location to beach, restaurants, and Corso Umberto. The booking manager, Simona was a pleasure to deal with when planning our stay. The ladies at reception greeted us everyday with their warm bright smiles, and were so helpful and knowledgeable. Ilayma and Alberto went above and beyond each morning to make sure breakfast was wonderful. Luigi and Grazia made our dinner experiences unforgettable.
