Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Villa Paradiso

Via Roma 2, Taormina, Sicily, 98039, Italy

On the edge of the historic center, overlooking lovely public gardens and facing the sea, this under-the-radar family-run hotel shows its age with antique furnishings, paintings, and Persian rugs, but makes up for it with delightful service, a good rooftop restaurant, and Etna views from many guest rooms. A free, regular shuttle-bus runs to the hotel's aptly named Paradise Beach Club between June and mid-October (though it gets overcrowded quickly).

PROS

  • good value
  • free 55 minutes of play time daily at tennis courts
  • great rooftop views

CONS

  • overall a bit more shabby than chic
  • not all rooms have views
  • only three free parking spaces (paid parking nearby)
