      We had an amazing experience at Villa Belvedere iln Taormina. The staff was exceptionally nice and helpful. The grounds and hotel were amazingly beautiful and well-kept, the room and bathroom were good sized. The breakfast in the morning was so delicious. We were very sad to leave Villa Belvedere and all the nice people there, especially Joshua. I would defintely stay here again on a return visit to Taormina and highly recommend to all travelers.

      Villa Belvedere - rude, arrogant, inhospitable

      from

      We are seasoned travellers, we are not spoiled brats. Of all Hotels in Sicily in which we stayed, this small hotel was the most rude, unconcerned and down right hostile. The British influence and their popularity at this hotel was evident, as an American

      (two couples in our 60's) we really did get the

      bottom of the barrel in rooms & service. Not

      that we expected special treatment , we expected

      the usual courtesy displayed in other Italian Hotels

      of like reputation and rating. Our requests were

      ignored and we were made to feel uninvited. What

      a disapointment!!! Gringos stay away.

      Lovely hotel with beautiful views

      from

      My wife and I stayed at this hotel for only one night, but wished it was for many more. We had an option of a non-view room or a smaller room with a terrace for less money. The receptionist, without any prompting, showed us the room with the terrace and it was a no brainer. Gorgeous views facing the gardens and sea had us hooked, no need to see the other room.

      Although a bit small, the room was comfortable and clean. I would have liked to see the other rooms, but they were already full.

      The staff is quite friendly. when we arrived it was a little past when the pool stopped serving lunch but again the receptionist who showed us our room asked if we were hungry and made a call to the pool to have them prepare a table for us. The food served by the pool is very good.

      As a note, the breakfast is ok, not extraordinary. The hotel is easily within walking distance of the center of town.

      We wish we could have stayed much longer, and we would definitely stay at the Villa Belvedere again.

      Terrific situation

      from

      Set on a promontory overlooking Etna and the sea, the Belvedere is a delightful turn of the century building with lovely antiques in the halls and dining room (breakfast only); a charming cascading garden with stunning pool (unheated) and superb views of Etna and the coastline; very convenient to restaurants and boutiques but secluded once inside.

      Rooms are average and the in room furniture is pedestrian. However, the staff is delightful and very helpful, the breakfast buffet in the dining room is also facing the sea, lunch is served at poolside should the guest wish it and there is a bar open all day at poolside for drinks, snacks etc. Parking (approx 6Euros/day) is available right in the very steep, twisting driveway and they will even get your car out and up for you which you will appreciate! Highly recommended

      Fantastico holiday

      from

      Spent a wonderful 10day holiday at Hotel Villa Belvedere when celebrating my 50th Birthday lastSeptember. This is our 4th time to Sicily, and when we return in the not too distant future, we shall endeavour to stay here again. We can thoroughly recommend this Hotel.

      It is run very efficiently by very friendly staff. Although there is not a restaurant serving evening meals, there is a delightful poolside restaurant for lunches and snacks. Our view from the balcony was stunning of Mt. Etna and the Bay of Naxos. Please do not be put off by the lack of an evening meal here because if you walk out of the hotel door a really good restaurant is within a couple of minutes stroll towards the town opposite the Garden Gates to the Public Park.

      Excellent, simple accommodation

      from

      Excellent 3 star hotel in superb location, with stunning views of Etna and the bay. Rooms comfortable, if simply furnished, with good bathrooms and satellite TV. Beautiful gardens with swimming pool. No restaurant, but light meals served by pool until 4.00 pm. Dozens of top quality restaurants nearby. Highly recommended for an unpretentious, relaxing stay.

      A Beautiful Hotel with friendly staff

      from

      A lovely hotel with an excellent staff. The views of Etna and the sea below are beautiful. The location is good just a few blocks from the main center of town, Corso Umberto. There is a lift, parking and a small bar and lounge to enjoy. The gardens and pool are very nice as are the tastefully decorated rooms. I good find and worth the price.

      Belvedere worth a look!

      from

      Just a few minutes walk from the park, the fantastic town centre, historic monuments and the cable car down to the beaches. Comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Good value and a hotel that encourages you to go out and enjoy the local restaurants and bars.

      Very nice

      from

      We stayed here for 2 nights during our honeymoon in June. The hotel and staff were very nice. Our room was comfortable and breakfast was very good. The hotel is nicely located above the sea and a short walk into town. We cannot wait to return to such a lovely place.

      Good Value Comfort

      from

      The Belvedire is ten minutes walk from the centre of Taormina on a quiet one-way road that makes it quiet at night. It has a swimming pool with bar that provides excellent lunches at reasonable prices. There are plenty of trees to provide shade during the heat of the middle oef the day. These are very important because Taormina is 400 metre above the beaches (though there is a cable car that cost about 1.5 Euro or a Pound).

      It is privately owned with well appointed lounges and although the public rooms are not air conditioned all bedrooms are. Note also that the air conditioning is really quiet and I was never disturbed by any one else's machines.

      It is not cheap (80 Euro B&B per night for a single) but it is really comfortable and relaxed.

      I met a delightful German school teacher who visits the hotel 4 or 5 times a year - good enough recommendation?

      Lovely

      from

      Stayed for 3nights. Room simple but comfortable, with beautiful view from balcony. No restaurant, but breakfast OK, and staff recommended excellent restaurants nearby fo revening meal. Gardens beautifully kept, and swimming pool good too. Position excallent for exploring on foot, and they have a car park too-although6 euro a night seems a bit steep Cuold have paid a lot more in Taormina and not been so happy- a good mid-price choice

      This weekend adventure was a ceaseless adventure. It started off with an overnight train experience, and let me tell you it was an experience! I think it's the smallest bed I've slept in for a night, but I made it through! We arrived in Catania, a city in Sicily, the following morning. As we were getting on the bus that would transfer us to our hotel, we all saw the true colors of one another with minimal sleep, cramped conditions, and gross bathrooms! We started off ...

      Last day had perfect weather. We went to an ancient theater with the casual Volcano as the background scenery. Mt. Etna was huge and beautiful. Clouds covered it up and I got a quick glimpse of it. An overall amazing weekend and I was sad to leave. Definitely want to go back to Sicily some ...

      left port of Messina and took a bus about 1 hour away to Taormina.  Really great tour guide for this tour.    Visited a great Greco Roman theatre, first built by Greeks then later rebuilt by the Romans with a fantastic view of the sea.  The town was very cute, and plenty of shopping.  Worth a trip ...
