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

Our stay at the Grand Hotel San Pietro was wonderful. The hotel's location is perfect--our room had beautiful views of the Mediterranean, and we were just a short walk from the excitement of Taormina. The only meal we ate at the hotel was breakfast, which was very impressive. The hotel has a beautiful terrace with an outdoor pool that overlooks... More

This is a wonderful hotel- the views are stunning and the breakfast on the terrace is a real treat. The rooms are comfortable and the service is very good. The pool are gives you a chance to relax overlooking the Mediterranean. It is a short walk into town but if you book the shuttle ahead of time they will take... More

We stayed for a weeks holiday this summer. Luckily we managed to get an upgrade to a sea view, as otherwise I think we'd have been pretty disappointed. Views are, however, stunning from everywhere in particular the pool which also has great service. Food is good at the hotel, if not a little pricey. There is also a basic but... More

This hotel is located just below the hustle and bustle of Taormina but the centre of town is a short 10-15 min walk up the hill. The hotel also runs free hourly shuttles (don't foget to book a seat ahead of time). The hotel has a fabulous view out over the mediterranean and you also have a great view of... More

Faded grandeur is the best way to describe this hotel. I have just returned from 12 days on half board. Our room was an executive with sea view and balcony. Although it was on the small size we did have an excellent view from the second floor. We were well placed in the centre of the hotel - further to... More
