Pros: Everything
Cons: The pool is modest, which is fine except when children arrive and jump in repeatedly!
Picture-perfect Italian villa, romantic, wonderful views, its 23-room size ensures boutique tranquility & sophistication, wonderful cuisine, and the staff are just fantastic.

Lovely, Characterful hotel in a great location!

Posted Aug 17, 2017
Pros: Style, staff and location
Cons: Size of the pool is reasonably small but there is so much to see in Taormina you shouldn't be spending too much time there
Location: Great location with top views (esp from the top floor restaurant)
Hotel very boutique with lots of character, in a great location! Staff could not do enough for us and we enjoyed our 4 night stay immensely!

Excellent hotel with beautiful views and service

Posted Aug 14, 2017
Pros: We liked pretty much everything. Food at the restaurant is great. We tried breakfast, lunch and dinner - all very good.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind.
Location: The centre of the town is within walking distance. Also possible to walk via stairs down to the sea.
The hotel is great. Excellent views of the sea from the room and from the restaurant and social areas. The customer service is fantastic with all the staff wanting to help you have a great stay. They gave us excellent recommendations for restaurants and for the beach club as well as places to visit.

Our stay was wonderful just needed to be longer. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. Our "apartment" was spacious and beautiful. Will definitely stay again.

Pros: Everything!
Cons: The only tiny thing was the shower needed explanation and leaked a bit on the floor.
Location: Close to town centre but easy to get to closer local restaurants out of the bustle of the crowds.
Stunning boutique hotel, brilliant and attentive staff, personal and prompt service, absolutely beautiful views and only 10 mins by foot into centre of town. Breakfast on the terrace was divine. Lovely double sunbeds near the pool covered with white linen shading. One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Highly recommended!

Great hotel in a beautiful location

Posted May 1, 2017 on Hotels
We arrived late, so after an excellent dinner and good night sleep the first view we had from Villa Carlotta was of Taormina, the sea and Mt Etna from the terrace restaurant over breakfast. The breakfast spread itself is delicious and uniquely Sicilian, and lunch and dinner menus are excellent too! Throughout the stay all of the staff were both friendly and helpful, by the time we left it was like saying goodbye to new friends. The pool is not heated, so not really usable until summer (unless you are very brave).
