This is a lovely friendly boutique hotel where you are made to feel very welcome. Our room wasn't huge but had a lovely private terrace with amazing views. Breakfast and dinner were good but what really makes this place special is the staff (honourable mentions to Olga and Marco). We stayed for three nights in one of their apartments. It...

We spent three nights here in September 12 and had a wonderful time. The stand out factor are the staff-they could not have been kinder or more helpful, without being overbearing. The upstairs restaurant and bar are heavenly-with sea views at the front and views of Etna to the side-the complimentary Apertitivi and the really wonderful breakfast were served here....

We just returned from an 8-day trip to Sicily, and Villa Carlotta was our last stop. It was a delight. The front desk members, especially Simona, Olga, and Riccardo, helped us with everything from dinner reservations to an Etna wine tasting at Gambino. Marco, at the hotel's restaurant, was charming every night for us, taking a personal interest in our...

From the time we arrived at this hotel the attitude and attention from the staff was exceptional; Simona, Olga and the guys were very polite and caring. The terrace restaurant was a perfect location and we love the breakfast choices. We stayed in a Deluxe Suite and had the benefit of an outside terrace. It may not matter to some...

Dear friends, thank you very much for your compliments about our hotel. I apologize for the noise that disturbed your stay and which caused the low mark you gave us which I believe we do not deserve.The cutting grass noise was not the hotel responsability; the town gardeners do that twice a year in the publicroad which are surrounded by...

It is difficult to think of something that has not already been said. The location is perfect and at the time of our visit my mobility was limited following surgery, so I was delighted to be able to manage without difficulty the walk to the centre. The staff are all delightful and nothing is too much trouble. The room we...

After reading several reviews, my husband and I chose the Villa Carlotta for our 20th Wedding Anniversary in mid September, 2012. We stayed in a suite with a beautiful terrace facing the pool and sea. This hotel has gotten it right in 2 very important ways: attention to detail and service. The attention to detail component is something that is...

My wife and I just stayed at the Villa Carlotta for the third time in three years. Everything about each of our stays was splendid. The location of the hotel, near to Taormina's walking streets and the beach below--and with terrific views, is great. The breakfast is indescribably good and the staff members who operate the restaurant are delightful people...
