Wow, Wow, Wow, this place is unbelievable! My wife and I split our time at Villa Carlotta and their sister hotel to celebrate our 46th anniversary. We love this place because the staff takes pride in treating everyone like family. We have never experienced this level of personal satisfaction and sense of belonging. We were met by Riccardo, manager of...

Villa Carlotta was the first stop on our trip to Sicily and was the perfect way to start our honeymoon. There is nothing to fault. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly - nothing was too much. The place is stylish and sophisticated. We had breakfast on the roof terrace every morning. It was perfect. We sat in the warm...

This is a lovely boutique hotel. The service is excellent and the location perfect (well free carparking on site would make it even more perfect!). However the room was a little small and the "balcony" almost impossible to fit onto. The breakfast was without fault. The dinner was fine but nothing compared to what it could have been. Expensive, even...

This is a wonderful hotel located a few minutes walk from Taormina centre - and you can traverse the the beautiful public gardens on the way when they're open (these closed around 19:00 when we were there). By the way, don't overlook the Al Giardino restaurant that you pass on the way; although it doesn't look that enticing we probably...

We selected Villa Carlotta for our honeymoon. Villa Carlotta is a few 100 metres from the bus terminal so good location-wise. (Travel tip -Toarmina is some 1.5 hours from the Airport - Etna bus service from Catania costs 7 euro and drops you close to the hotel or you can get a taxi from the airport for 100 euro). When...

This small hotel is well located; away from the madness of the tours but close enough to easily walk into the center. The rooms are very nice with specatular views. The breakfast was better than that offered at any other hotel we stayed at in Sicily and the breakfast terrace overlooking the sea and Mt. Etna is unmatched. Most importantly,...
