Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Villa Sirina Taormina
Loved Villa Serina.
We spent a most enjoyable week at the Villa Sirina. The tone was set when on our delayed arrival we were very appreciative that a light meal & wine was laid out in our Suite. The Hotel Villa Sirina is located in lovely , peaceful surroundings away from the hustle & bustle of Taormina town and a short walk to a selection of beaches. A regular bus service operates to Taormina & other locations or the fitness conscious can choose to walk/ climb if so inclined. The staff were very friendly & helpful (even with the language barrier). Overall it was one of our most enjoyable holidays.
We visited the Villa Sirinia on June 6-8; without a doubt this has the most beautiful location along with the best service we have experienced. This is coming from 2 US travellers who have spent over 6 months of their lives traveling in Europe and also lived there. No hotel could have provided better service or beauty.
This was our second stay in the Hotel Villa sirena and we are already planning to go again next year. It is simply wonderful - -very welcoming comfortable and elegant with tasteful antiques and art without feeling that you are in a museum. We found its location halfway between Taormina and Naxos very convienient with Naxos a few minutes walk and Taormina a short car journey with very good parking in the multi storey carpark.
We have just returned from spending 6nights at Villa Sirina in the beautiful and picturesque town of Taormina.
Charming Villa Sirina
We stayed for three nights at the Villa Sirina. This small villa is loaded with charm. It is furnished throughout with tasteful and artistic objects. The garden surrounding it is lush and dreamy. Sitting on the balcony at night, overlooking the coast of Taormina, was a beautiful and serene part of the day. If I could, I would stay here for a month. What's more, the breakfasts are sumptious and offer a large array of choices and all the staff at Villa Sirina are kind and helpful. You will not be disappointed.
Wonderful hotel, excellent value
Enjoyed a recent holiday in this lovely hotel. The grounds and hotel are well kept and spotlessly clean. The pool and terrace areas comfortable and peaceful (apart from the occasional passing ambulance). Service was great and management went out of their way to be helpful. Breakfast was delicious, as was the light lunch. An easy walk down to the beach and a shuttle bus available to reach Taormina. Admittedly you have to plan your day to coincide with the bus times and it stopped early. However add the cost of a cab to the cost of the room and you still have excellent value. Would be happy to stay there again.
Our home in Taormina
Our 7 day stay at the Villa Sirina was wonderful! The beautiful oasis in which it is situated provides a relaxing and welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the main streets of Taormina above. The Cacopardo family and the staff were warm and inviting, making us feel right at home. We look forward to our return to Sicily and the Villa Sirina--it truly is serene!

Let's say it is barely two stars !
if this hotel has four stars , the san domenico has 10 stars ,the Timeo has 12 stars and Villa fabiano has 9 stars . This is a pure joke and the hotel also is not in taormina but it is closed to the hospital . I don't want to see the hospital I want to see the ocean ....
Breathtaking views, five star service, old world charm
I will always stay at the Villa Sirina. Wake up to the beauty and scents of Ionic Sea from your bed. First class service without first class prices in a beautifully restored Villa. The best of the countryside and a short ride to the Center of Town. Quiet and peaceful with the warmth and welcomeness Italians are known. Very romantic and pristine. I highly recommend it!
Stay closer to town
The web site is deceptive in that it makes it sound like an easy jaunt into town. In reality, the shuttle bus is sporadic and cab rides are expensive and there is no way you want to walk to town. So unless you have a car, you're pretty much secluded at the hotel. There is a shuttle that will take you to the beach but it's a better deal to stay in town.
The hotel itself was fine -- beautiful pool and surrounding property. The rooms were adequate. The hotel owner made us feel like we were a burden to him.
Avoid Taormina in late July and August unless you really love crowds.
