I challenge anyone to suggest a hotel better than villa st Andrea. Maybe villa d'este, which we recently stayed at but no others. The staff are just wonderful, especially Luigi in the restaurant, not to mention the charismatic GM Giovanni. Our room, junior suite was like a palace and the location of the hotel on the beach is what I... More

Being not too impressed by the dirty Catania and unfriendly people there, I booked this hotel on the last day of my conference there hoping to have some relaxing time. I felt that it was the right choice the moment arriving at the gate. The view from my balcony of the double superior room was amazingly beautiful. The private beach... More

This hotel has lots of character and is superbly run, with very professional and dedicated staff. We arrived late into the evening and began to get the feel of the hotel as we walked down the sloping driveway with the music from the bar wafting up from below. We'd taken a junior suite, which was immaculate and a very good... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during which we were joined by a couple of our oldest and best friends. We loved it! The rooms are different from one another because it was previously a private villa. The rooms we had were charming and had fantastic views. We found the food to be excellent and dinner in the Garden was... More

We stayed four nights in this lovely hotel, situated on a beautiful bay just below Taormina. I overheard someone say it was not as "Glam" as St. Tropez or Capri and that is true. This is how travelling used to be in the days before large chains built anonymous hotels. We booked the sea and mountain package which included a... More

Hotel staff are very friendly but ineffective. Some of the rooms advertised as water views are water views if you go out on the balcony and turn your head right. Like being in a parking lot for some of the rooms. Dining room nice but given the prices they charge they should deliver a better product. No coordination between staff... More

My wife and I, with two friends, spent four nights at the hotel. We arrived fairly late in the evening to the best welcome we have ever experienced. The staff are so friendly, attentive, helpful and utterly delightful. This really made the holiday for us. The location is fantastic and we enjoyed some marvellous breakfasts and lunches (we tended to... More

What a great hotel and location! I couldn't initially decide between this and The Timeo but with a shuttle running between both, every 30 minutes, we had the best of both worlds. This is on the beach and as always with Orient Express Hotels, the service impeccable, the location perfect, attention to detail second to none and gardens and presentation... More

My husband and I spent two fabulous nights at the Villa Sant Andrea. We had an amazing suite with a private balcony, which added to our experience. The food was fabulous - in the restaurant and in-room dining, with wonderful attention to detail and service. The staff at the hotel were amazing - nothing was too much trouble. We even... More
