Best hotel in Taormina! Make sure to get a room with a view and terrace, absolutely worth it. Pool is great with waiter service, shuttle to the beach is very convenient, breakfast is one of the best I had in Italy. Walking distance to the city centre for restaurants and shopping. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Overall highly recommend!

We stayed here for a wedding in another venue for a friends wedding. Hotel is beautiful and about 15 mins from centre. We would not return as the kids were enjoying themselves in the pool and the do called wedding planner said they were too noisy. Suggest the hotel either makes it an adult only hotel or explains to guests... More

My Wife and I spent a vacation of 6 nights at Grand Hotel San Pietro. we stayed in the Superior room at the 4th floor. We found the 5 stars hotel online and did not know what to expect out of it. When we got there the first time, we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel was quiet and clean and... More

The hotel is lovely and was once very grand, but compared to other 5-star and Relais & Chateaux, there are improvements needed. We were provided with one flimsy bath towel per person, and dish cloths that served no purpose. The shower was a relic and the water quality was poor. We were provided one small bottle of water upon arrival,... More

We had a sweat welcoming on our arrival, an approach unfortunately not significant from the rest of our days. The hotel suffers from a faded charm and have some attitude adjustments that are needed for some of the hotel staff. Not all, that would be unfair to say. There was a really sweat younger, a bit blond woman working in... More

My wife and I stayed at the Grand Hotel San Pietro for four nights in early June and we enjoyed our visit. The hotel is close enough to the center of Taormina to enable a relaxed walk if you don't mind walking up or down hill, though we did take advantage of the complimentary hourly shuttle service a few times....

Attended a wedding here, WOW, what a venue and what fantastic organising from the staff. Not the prettiest hotels from the front, but very plush inside, I would defiantly consider this as somewhere to stay if I were to return.

We stayed only one night, it's a very nice hotel, I would rate it 4 stars not 5. We were upgraded to the suite with the sea view ...,..makes a big difference. The hotel is in beautiful location, few minutes away from the center of the town.

The hotel is rated as 5 star luxe. It is a nice property but the rooms are somewhat tired and dated. It advertises Sky/ cable TV but the only English channels available are Sky News and BBC News. Housekeeping service is somewhat haphazard, not consistently what you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Lounge area nice but pool area... More

This is a fine hotel with comfortable , well appointed bedrooms and public rooms. The staff are really special and caring, which in my view makes the whole difference. The food in the hotel is excellent as the "Relais & Chateau" will attest . We preferred the lunch menu which was simpler than dinner although we mostly ate out, The... More
