Big thank you to Daniele for organising the night for us and then Salvatore on the evening. Overall the staff were very attentive but it was effortless and not over the top. The...

My wife and I stayed here while touring Sicily. The hotel was highly rated and seemed like a good option. The staff is terrific, the location fantastic and it's proximity to the cable car to take you to the village is a plus. Our trip could not be rated as 5 stars though. Although an upgraded room, it was extremely...

Nestling below the village of Taormina, this hotel exudes Italian charm and tranquility. Its location by the beach is perfect for sun-lovers, and its intimate restaurant offers lovely dishes and extremely efficient staff . Trying dinner in the sister hotel the Timeo provided a great contrast and was a very special experience. Highly recommended for a romantic escape

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. Guests at Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea can enjoy all the facilities of Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo, its sister property located in the centre of Taormina next to the Greek Theatre. ... more   less
