Our Guests say

20%Needs service niggles sorting and better aircon

Boutique in places. MDF wardrobes and sliding bedroom doors remind me of a Blackpool guesthouse. The air con was poor. The boutique antique pieces in the common rooms are kept nice and cool by the air con (maybe due to the bedroom building front door not being able to close properly helps keep it going full bore?) but in our bedroom we were uncomfortable at night when the air con could not cool our bedroom or that of other guests we spoke to. Dinner was less fun than at the Five (5) restaurant in nearby seaside Acitrezza. Too pretentious, tiny portions and the express train hurtling by. Breakfast needs the staff to stop hiding and to clear the tables and be there when you want another coffee. The pool would be more relaxing if the bar waiter ( who is in another building) did not insist on playing muzak with a repetitive deep bass drum. I know lots of other like this tidy oasis in the scruffy littered countryside of Sicily but for the money I expect more focus on the customers. On a positive note we had a large adjoining sitting room to our bedroom which sadly had no TV, and if cooler would be a nice place to sit and read.

Hotel description

Steeped in history and natural beauty, Sicily offers a wealth for the traveller in search or relaxation and romance. There’s no better base to experience it than Donnacarmela’s Boutique Hotel.
The Beautiful Location of Donnacarmela’s Boutique Hotel
Once you’ve seen the setting of this utterly charming boutique hotel, you won’t forget it in a hurry. Not only does it boast a gorgeous Mediterranean location, but it has a magnificent, 10,000 square metre nursery all to itself. The scents of the rare and delicate plants that are housed here fill the air. But natural beauty abounds here too: the azure Ionian sea is nearby – great for swimming from the sandy beaches of Taormina – and Mount Etna looms majestically over the whole scene.
