Hotel Villa Sonia, Castelmola
Good3.0 / 5
Picturesque hotel, bad food, poor service
The hotel was charming with a great view of Mt. Etna. The food in the restaurant was not good. I would not recommend eating dinner here. The service left something to be desired. There was no desire to satisfy the customer.

Quality with an Incredible View
Comfortable room with a breathtaking view of the valley and Mt. Etna. Shuttle service to Taormina with all its history. Short uphill hike, (200 mtrs), to the town of Castelmola with its quaint shops and great views. Loved everything about Villa Sonia.

The hotel is lovely and staff are pleasant. the views are stunning . We had a basic room which was comfortable enough and clean but the balcony was not any good for anything really, it was below street level and and got no sun. Our only niggle was only one power socket which made life somewhat challenging but we always carry an extension lead. Also no Kettle for tea and coffee and as the bar is closed during the day so unless you used room service you'll have a dry day, also the same applies to lunch "nada". Castlemola is great BUT it is at the top of a mountain and the bus service changed 3 times in 1 week , the last bus being at 9.40 when we 1st got there it was 11.40 (at least 45 walk down & the walk up would kill you). We did go in September but the hotel was dead and was lacking any sort of atmosphere. . That Said it is a lovely hotel and the location is beautiful but we felt like we were holding on the moon. I should also mention that the food that we eat there was of a good standard.

Up the hill is the way to go!
We stayed in a small no balcony room, which was cramped and had large furniture but a small bed. Probably not a practical result, though other rooms with balcony looked more spacious. A very tiny shower was the other impractical part of our stay. However, the hotel itself is wonderful. Lovely pool and sunbathing areas with lounges, and sweeping views to Etna which was spectacular from not only the pool area, but restaurant and breakfast space. Nice breakfast spread. 5 euros for parking per night was unexpected but not unreasonable. 150 metres from wonderful Castelmola makes this a superb location, as it is one of the great little European medieval towns with lovely restaurants and bars. Bus to Taormina is accessible, but suggest going to Castelmola stop rather than outside the hotel, so it definitely stops for you. The public bus drivers are 'inflexible' so to speak. Staying here is better than is busy Taormina.

Brilliant visit 1st week of September
We stayed at Villa Sonia for one week to celebrate our Ruby wedding anniversary before flying on to Lake Garda. On arrival we were a little sceptical & early for booking in but still shown to our superior room. Fantastic views of Etna & the surrounding country side from the balcony which was walled and felt a little closed in when sitting. The room was very spacious if a little dated but very comfortable with crisp white sheets and plenty of fluffy white towels. Overall the general decor is dated and the many antiquities are varied and interesting but this adds to it's charm. The staff are all very knowledgeable & helpful whilst being friendly but professional. We found all amenities especially the pool area great. The food was very good but not exceptional with good service. The location for a quiet holiday is exceptional as Castelmola is a very relaxed little town with an excellent bus service into Taormina. Overall we had a fantastic holiday with very fond memories of our stay and will recommend Villa Sonia to anyone who enjoys relaxation in area with plenty to see & do. If you're looking for English/Irish bars and night clubs stay away and leave the peace and culture to those who enjoy it. We will visit again.
