We stayed at the apartment which is located 1?block from the hotel. Room was huge and had a kitchen. beautiful view from the terrace. New bathroom. Staff was very helpful and accomodating ( early breakfast was offered on the day of our departure) Hotel is arranging pick up/ drop off at the beach which was very convenient because parking at the beaches is not easy. Hotel is located close to the town and you could walk to the town trough public garden which us beautiful. Breakfast was good. We did not have breakfast included in the price but upon inquiring about the cost of breakfast we received call that it will be complimentary which was very nice. Definitely I would recommend to choose apartment over the main hotel building. Pool was small.
Staff was excellent and incredibly attentive to the guests. The rooms were extremely quiet and private. Views from the main balcony are phenomenal. Buffet breakfast held a great selection of sweet and savory dishes. Overall this hotel was great. My only complaint is that the room needed some touch up paint on the walls and floors. the lack of these touch ups made the room feel worn and a bit dirty.
We loved our stay at Villa Carlotta. It was impecable and had all the amenties you could ever need. The staff was so attentative to our every need. We stayed in apartemnt one which I could have lived in for months! It had plenty of room and was very comfortable, with plushy towels, bathrobes, refridgerator, fresh fruit, cofee maker, and more. The breakfasts at Villa Carlotta were just simply outstanding! We liked that it was a little bit on the fringe of Taomina and just a quick walk to the main street.
We spent ten nights at La Plage in September 2015.
The rooms are comfortable and clean with very decent sized beds. The bungalows look especially sizeable with small private gardens.
The breakfast is plentiful and in a lovely setting. Perhaps a few more parasols are needed as it can be quite hot first thing in the morning. The staff at breakfast are friendly and the service is prompt.
The beach itself is beautiful and the warm crystal clear and clean. The hotel is very close to the nature reserve of Isola Bella.
There is also decent scuba diving with the Nike diving centre. The staff at Nike are very friendly and professional indeed and speak French , English and Spanish.
The beach staff are helpful , but the music at the beach bar could be a little quieter.
The spa appears to be run separately from the hotel and is small , with only a small jacuzzi and steam room which were not hot. The remainder is a treatment room.
nice hotel although not really worthy of a five star status.
The bar area was inadequate for the number of guests particularly in wet weather as there was seating for about 16 people. Of course lovely places round the pool but not in pouring rain.

Fantastic location right in the heart of Taormina. Stunning views of the sea from the room, breakfast room, drinks balcony. Hotel building is beautiful and the infinity pool is the gem of the hotel. Pricey, but worth it! Staff were very friendly and helpful and the buffet breakfast was out of this world.
A balcony setting on Mount Tauro with a sweeping view of Sicily’s coastline and Mount Etna gives Taormina its lasting appeal. It is Sicily’s only truly international resort, much-favoured by celebrities. The old quarter’s steep, narrow alleys are filled with window boxes and painted pottery, and best explored on foot. Main sights are the classical remains and Renaissance palaces. The Greco-Roman theatre is still used for concerts and festivals.
