Initially we had booked 4 nights at Villa Sant' Andrea & 3 nights at Grand Hotel Timeo to experience both hotels and enjoy both properties. The complimentary chauffeured transportation in immaculate Mercedes vehicles made visiting their sister property and enjoying Taormina very convenient. After our 2nd night at Villa Sant Andrea knew we wanted to stay! This is a rare...

Hotel is very classy. A very high standard of service but not too formal. The restaurant has the most amazing ambience with spectacular views across the bay and the food is excellent. Beware: ridiculously expensive in the restaurant. They are in danger of losing customers. Many guests were choosing to go elsewhere.

This hotel is very expensive for what you get. The service is satisfactory, the food is average and without passion and the rooms are expensive and small for the cost. It is in a lovely setting but it is obviously owned by a chain of hotels and you can see the staff are remote from management.

Expensive but the property and staff earn every penny. We loved waking up to a view of the sea, the beautiful, shaded pool, and rocky beach. The staff were all helpful and friendly. Also the hotel is across the street from the cable car, a fun way to get up to town. We will be back.

Beautiful old summer house by the sea as hotel with good service and food with Mount Etna and historical city Taormina behind. Beautiful local wines produced from grapes of Etna. Close to city of Modica with good choclate and Ragussa with delicious cheese.Concerts at the Ancinet Greek Theatre should be followed.

The hotel and it's setting are magnificent but that is surpassed by the staff, who from top to bottom are very gracious and helpful in a natural and no pretentious way.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With an exclusive location on the Bay of Mazzarò, considered one of the most beautiful in all of Italy, the elegant Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea nestles on its own private beach with new luxurious cabanas, facing the dazzling aquamarine sea. Built by an aristocratic family in 1830, surrounded by lush, subtropical gardens, the hotel retains all the charm of a private residence, enriched by paintings and antiques. The décor of the 64 rooms and suites reflects the nautical character and marine location of the hotel, with ample use of local stone and Sicilian materials and fabrics, creating a light, relaxed and serene atmosphere. The Oliviero Restaurant, on a panoramic terrace overlooking the gorgeous sea, is known for its fish and seafood specialties and traditional Mediterranean cuisine. The Bar, located on the outdoor terrace, is the perfect place to enjoy a drink, a snack or a light lunch by the beach. A Beach Bar and a Pool Bar in the new pool area are also available for a refreshing drink after a swim. Guests can benefit of the complimentary shuttle to the centre of Taormina, as well as the daily mini-cruise by private boat to explore the beauties of the coast (available during summer). The wellness centre offers a range of exclusive treatments for the ultimate of relax, while the fitness centre is fully equipped with the latest technology. The Smile Club with an English-speaking supervisor is available to entertain the younger guests with lots of fun and exciting activities.
