The breakfast is great. Scrambled egg at last and triangles of cheese with white and whole grain rolls. We also enjoy cherry yogurt. Afterward, we look at a book covering Hold Week events in art in Siena. Holy Week is fresh in our minds since we just saw the musical 'Jesus Christ Superstar' in San Diego. I …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Esperia Mazzaro

    Lovely Time at the Villa Esperia, Taormina

    from

    We just came back from a ten days holiday at the Villa Esperia Hotel and can honestly say that we had a marvellous time. We were worried after reading some negative reviews of other visitors but decided to see for ourselves and were pleasently surprised with what we encountered. The staff were extremely helpful. We were quite late because our rented car broke down however they kept our dinner for us even at 11:30 pm!!. The rooms are nicely decorated and good beds!!. The air conditioning was working properly even during the day!! Extremely clean. The food is more than Ok for what we paid and there is a choice of five dishes each night and the excellent sicilian buffet on friday. Angelo, Giusseppe, Salvattore. Roberto, Antonio and the rest of the staff made our stay even more pleasant. We will definetely come back to the same hotel in the future if travelling again to beautiful Taormina. Hope this will help anyone thinking of going to this hotel. Highly recommend it.

    Villa Esperia is not too bad!

    from

    We have just come back from 10 days at the Villa Esperia; at the time of booking only 3 reviews on this hotel were available (from 2003) and these were pretty positive, it was only when I checked just before we left that I saw all the recent negative reviews and so was very worried about what we would find.

    Definitely Not One for Food Lovers!

    from

    Having just returned from a week staying at the Esperia, I can only echo most of the reviews I wish I had read before booking. The hotel is on a dangerous bend on a very busy road and has a long flight of steps leading up to the reception, although there is also a lift which is not offered. The rooms are generally clean, but very basic and in need of an overhaul, with strange aircon which the occupants cannot control.

    An okay hotel..not worth the money

    from

    My boyfriend and I have just returned from a week in fabulous Taormina. We were there to check out hotels, restaurants and churches for our wedding in Taormina next June. We stayed at the esperia and found the hotel alright. It definetely wouldn't be classed as a four star hotel in our books but it served its purpose for this visit. We found the rooms could do with a huge makeover if it is to be classed as a four star hotel but they were spotless clean and housekeeping arrived early every morning (approx 9-10am) to start cleaning. The pool area and pool were really nice with enough sunbeds for everyone. Most of the staff were nice, one or two weren't really interested in making you feel welcome. The hotel is about 100m from the cable car up to the main street in Taormina which wasn't a problem. BUT I have to say the food in the hotel was AWFUL. We opted for half board when booking this hotel and we ate in the restaurant just 1 night, we couldn't bare the thoughts of going in there again. Breakfast was ok... the usual continental style... All in all I wouldn't reccommend this hotel at the price we got it for.. it should be classed as a budget hotel with a budget price. Looking forward to Taromina again next year.

    4 Star hotel - It most definitely is not

    from

    The hotel was in a lovely position but we were terribly disappointed when we entered. There was no one to greet us or assist with our cases so we had to carry them up quite a long flight of stairs (we found out later there was a lift). We had a problem with our room and found the Manager and Reception staff very unhelpful and actually quite rude.

    The rooms were very basic and the standard of housekeeping in our room, public areas and pool area was below standard. Apart from the Friday buffet the food was pretty poor although the restaurant staff were helpful and friendly.

    Above all our observation was that this was most definitely not a 4 Star hotel. It was of budget quality in all respects.

    Definitely not 4 star standard!

    from

    Just returned from a week at the Villa Esperia and would endorse the previous review. This hotel does not meet the levels of accomodation, service or facilities which we have enjoyed in other 4 star hotels in Italy.

    Definitely not a 4 star hotel!

    from

    We have just returned from a week at the Hotel Villa Esperia, and we leave with mixed feelings. As other reviews have commented, the bar and waiting staff are fantastic - Angelo, Roberto and Guiseppe in particular. They went out of their way to be fun, friendly and helpful - even after working a 14 hour day!

    Excellent holiday; go right now!

    from

    Had a brilliant time at the villa esperia, wanted to go back as soon as

    Definately going back!

    from

    Hotel Villa Esperia has a stunning location overlooking the sea and is

    just 200m from the beach. Staff at the hotel were extremely warm,

    friendly, helpful and efficient and made the holiday a fantastic trip

    and one which I am hoping to repeat. The rooms are modern and furnished

    to a high standard, the reception and bar area is clean and spacious

    and the swimming pool is a welcome retreat when the sun has got too

    much to bear and you need to cool down! The food was amazing and there

    is so much choice every evening and during my two week stay, none of

    the meals appeared twice on the menu. All in all the hotel was a lovely

    place to stay and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who is

    thinking of going to Sicily.

    No way a four star

    from

    Lovely view from the hotel overlooking the bay.

    Would question the fact that it is rated as a 4 star! I would say it is more of a budget hotel.

    Reception staff were rude and refused to answer any questions or deals with any complaints.

    Overall it is okay. But not a 4 star.
