A gorgeous place to stay in a not-so-visited part of southern Italy. Perched high up a hill it its own glorious gardens (and golf course), the hotel is a gracious, beautifully-restored and maintained property with everything to offer. Some rooms have their own Juliette balconies and there are superb terraces for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as a pool... More

This hotel is yet another little Italian gem. A lovely family run hotel in a beautiful location. No opulent glitz but sheer charm and quality. Excellently run by the family who are always present to address any queries. Staff all appear very happy in their work with the owner's wife Ornella being the most customer service minded person you could... More

My husband and I stayed at San Michele this June. I have never experienced anything like it. The hotel itself is incredibly beautiful, the pictures simply don't to it justice. But what was more impressive was the warm welcome from the owners, who couldn't have been sweeter, to the over the top service from the equally warm staff!!!! We had... More

This hotel has it all. We had a patio outside our room with a sweeping view of the sea. I could have just stayed there all day but had to attend lectures as part of a summer school that was staged at the hotel. The pool is beautiful and long enough to do laps. I could have stayed there all... More

We stayed at the San Michele from 18th to the 25th June, 2015 travelling with Travelsphere. Our first view of the hotel was stunning and the lovely discoveries just kept on coming. We received a very warm welcome and were soon settled in our bedroom. Although the bedroom and bathroom were a little dated, the room was very large and... More

The Grand San Michele is a wonderful place with so much to offer. We had our wedding here in June 2015 and loved every part of it. We used Slow Dreams Inc as our wedding planners and they were wonderful from start to finish. Always quick to respond, friendly and organised. The Grand San Michele was just one of their... More

We have recently returned from a visit to Calabria, where we have an apartment. Fortunately, only a 10-15 minute drive away is the wonderful Grand Hotel San Michele. It's hard to know where to begin, as it is one of those situations that is perfect, to us, in every way. The owner, Ornella, is the most delightful lady and her... More

Yet another perfect stay at San Michele...after many visits the staff and venue never fails to delight. Live the "chill out" factor, even when the weather isn't perfect. The beach bar is amazing...and the service standards are excellent. If you are looking for a corporate feel then avoid San Michele...if you are looking for a special, individual hotel then look...

I've just returned from a week at this marvellous hotel. The room was clean and comfortable, the view from our balcony beautiful. The food was great, the staff friendly and helpful. There's a private beach reached by lift, and with an easy walk through to the marina. I went with a group, but if you're travelling as a couple or... More
