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

Very nice hotel. The staff were very attentive. Had an amazing dinner for two on their special ledge overlooking the bay. Amazing. Nice rooms. The higher up the better the view. Food and service was excellent.

The guest room and the public rooms were very nice, but the food was unimpressive considering the very high price. A major issue was the intermittent internet connection. The WiFi connection worked OK but there were often long periods with no connection between the WiFi and the internet. We were there for a week and they didn't get round to... More

We always try to chose Relais et Château each time we want to be sure about the hotel we will stay and we have never been disappointed except this time. We stayed in this hotel in August last month and we wanted to celebrate there my friend's birthday and it was a gift for him. So I decided to spend... More

We stayed at the San Pietro and had a lovely time. We had a junior suite with a balcony and a sea view that was beautiful. The rooms were bright, spacious and comfortable. Reading some of the negative reviews on TripAdvisor, it's hard to believe we stayed at the same hotel. Everyone who worked at the hotel who we interacted... More
