"Perfection, As Always"
My partner and I returned to VA for the second time in September. Having had such high expectations after the first time we visited, all I can say is that they were met and exceeded! The staff (particularly Katharine, Charlie and Mario) will go to any and all lengths to ensure that you're happy and comfortable. The hotel is immaculate, the food is wonderful and in abundance and the atmosphere is welcoming and serene.
We stayed in the fabulous Leonardo da Vinci suite, complete with a large, gorgeous, art deco style bed, its own living room, bathroom (with amazing jacuzzi bath and shower), walk in closet and two balconies. Upon arrival, we were greeted with fresh fruit and cold prosecco, which we enjoyed while looking on Etna. We felt very spoiled!
We were lucky with the weather, and got to spend several days lounging around the hotel's beautiful pool, made better by the great drinks service and complimentary towels provided. We ate breakfast in the hotel every day, a few times in our room, on one of our gorgeous balconies. We also had lunch and dinner at the hotel, and each meal was of the highest standard - delicious and well prepared.
I can't say enough good things about Villa Angela, other than to go and experience it for yourself. We'd like to think we're well acquainted with Taormina now, and met several couples who had stayed at other reputable hotels in the town - none matched up to this one.
If you're looking for a relaxing retreat in gorgeous, Sicilian surroundings, superb service and an atmosphere that's always welcoming, I suggest you head for the hills, of Taormina, to Villa Angela. You won't regret it!
