We have spent amazing 10 days in this hotel with my wife and it met all our expectations. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. The room was spacey and comfortable and food delicious. The hotel had a nice pool (big enough for swimming) and offered easy access to the beach with an area reserved just for the hotel...

We booked this hotel as a part of our honeymoon. The garden and the pool area is just wonderful. The staff really helpful and kind. The private beach was just perfect - only few steps from the hotel. Breakfast was really good and the restaurant had great food and wine. The room was comfy and had a nice sun terrace....

I had an amazing stay in this place. Cozy rooms, beautiful garden, comfortable swimming pool and nice private beach nearby. It is not just an hotel, it is a real castle where you feel like aristocrat. I would like to note that the owners of this place are wonderful people, very kind and friendly. Everything is very clean and well-groomed....

Fantastic property with beautiful gardens and a large, quiet pool. Next to a private beach. ( Need to cross a quiet road to get there, less than 100 meters) The rooms are not in the castle, but in buildings next to it. The atmosphere is sophisticated and a bit quirky with many interesting statues and other decorations that fit with...

This was our second visit to Castello. And nothing spoiled our expectations created after our first visit. The rooms were significantly improved (some being completely renovated); garden was great; tennis court opened permanently (with tennis rockets and balls you can take for free from reception); swimming pool - gorgeous; the private pebble beach and the sea - great; but, above...

We stayed 3 nights out of our 17 day Italy trip. Of all the hotels and apartments, this was our splurge and it was worth it. Upon arriving from Taormina in the dark, we were a little concerned about the neighborhood our GPS took us through. We arrived at the private gated secure parking and were greeted by a very...

This is a very, very good hotel! Quite difficult to find - would suggest locating on Google Earth first. After announcing our arrival at the main gate, we were redirected to the car park where the gates were opened and we were met by a receptionist in a golf buggy to take us to our room with our luggage.

This is our second time here and it was as lovely as the last. The garden grounds are lovely to stroll in especially in the evening, the restaurant is really excellent, and for the nights when you don't want an elaborate meal there are a few good local places a short walk away. The pool area is relaxing although this...
