My wife and I had a lovely stay here as part of our honeymoon. The nightly rate is in the expensive end compared to other offerings in Taormina but it was definitely worth it.
It was a stylish monastery and stylishly retains many of the original features. The rooms all have high ceilings and ours had a great sea view too.
The service from all the staff was excellent, from the chambermaids, pool attendants through to the front of desk staff.
We had a memorable dinner on the first night in the hotel's michelin starred restaurant sat on a veranda. Although it's the first time I'd seen a water menu, I wasn't convinced by this.
I'd certainly recommend drinks in the courtyard bar.
Prior to booking this hotel, I'd also considered the Grand Hotel Timeo. As it turned out we were extremely happy with the San Domenico Palace.
Our only reservation was that the internet wasn't included in the room rate.
If you're planning to celebrate a special occasion in Taormina (or even if you aren't), I'm sure you won't be disappointed with this hotel.More
