"Wonderful Hotel, People and Views!!"
We stayed here two nights, July 5th and 6th, prior to boarding a cruise from Catania and we were so pleased with the Villa Angela. We booked and got the Etna suite and it certainly did not disappoint.
We checked in around 8pm after a flight from London and we had the car service they use TCS pick us up. They are great guys and we used them for about 4 trips after our initial pick up..
Check in was very smooth and we were very impressed with the suite. Two bedrooms and both with large balconies directly overlooking Mnt. Etna, the surrounding area as well as the Mediterranean and the coastline. One balcony had loungers and the other had a table and chairs.We sipped champagne from our balcony and watched the view... so enjoyable.
The bathroom had a separate room for a shower and a huge whirlpool tub in the other with a big flat screen tv. We didn't end up eating at the hotel as we slept through breakfast and decided to go into town for dinner. We used the hotel shuttle once and it worked well. Best to make sure you book in advance during busy times.
The pool is a good temperature and we enjoyed a nice swim after a full day of sight seeing.
The artwork and decor around the hotel is very authentic and in keeping with the vicinity. It is such a beautiful spot that we wish we had more time to enjoy the hotel itself. We would definitely stay here again.
You will not be disappointed with the Villa Angela..
