I've just returned from a week's stay at the San Pietro and it was the restful tonic I needed. The good things first: the staff were always exceptionally polite and helpful: the heel came off my shoe on the outward journey and, after umming and ahhing a little, the concierge managed to have it reheeled in the space of a...

We stayed at the Grand Hotel San Pietro for eight days in july based on Tripadvisor reviews and were so happy we chose this resort. The rooms were comfortable and we had a wonderful view of the ocean from our patio. The pool area was beautiful - we could have sat by the pool for hours on end. The breakfast... More

Just returned from 8 days in Taormina at the Grand Hotel San Pietro. Starting with the resort and surrounding area. Taormina is a great resort. It's set on a hill with the town at the top and a cable car to take you down to the beach. The views are stunning. The nearby towns on the coastline are a bit... More

We have just returned from a 12 day stay and would commend the Hotel on its friendly helpful staff and overall cleanliness throughout . However on our second evening we returned to the Hotel at 10.30 entered the Bar outside area ( which separated from the restaurant area ) only to be refused service due to the fact that I... More

We have returned from a 10 day holiday in Taormina and enjoyed the Hotel. We paid quite a bit extra for a superior room with a sea view. Whilst we were glad we did as the view was excellent and a very spacious room and balcony we felt it was a lot extra. However if you can afford to do... More

We are accustomed to staying in 5 star hotels and I picked this hotel for our 12-day stay in Taormina based upon Trip Advisor reviews. I was not disappointed. Words like perfect, wonderful, and fantastic seem so inadequate when describing the Grand Hotel San Pietro, Taormina. The hotel is what I would call understated elegant. Common rooms are beautiful, yet... More

Oh deary deary me - I'd expected a lot more from a five star ( L ) hotel with Relais and Chateau classification but was sadly disappointed. Breakfast presentation lacked so much in terms of wow factors and was the same every day and smacked of someone not bothering in the kitchen. However one day we decided to be adventurous... More

Lovely location on the hill ascending Taormina, well kept property, breath-taking views across the sea and up and down the coastline, great swimming pool, helpful courteous staff who gave us good tips on restaurants, vineyards to visit, sites to see.

Returned after 4 years and immediately thought the outside needed painting. Rooms are good size with usual fittings - nothing outstanding but does the job and again could do with a repaint to cover scuff marks etc. Views from the balcony are spectacular. Star points for me were the friendly staff, the pool area (& Dario), and the restaurant which... More
