Stayed at the hotel in August 2014, can't really fault the hotel other than the dreadful wifi but it lacks something. There is no really special feeling of luxury that one would expect from a 5*L hotel. It was perfectly fine but it wasn't fantastic. In relation to the views, we paid extra for a sea view room with a... More

When we arrived we found that we had been allocated a front facing room with no balcony (not the hotel's fault). The staff were most obliging and able to find us an upgrade to a sea facing room with a balcony. This transformed our experience! The hotel is a short up hill walk into town, but a shuttle service is... More

We desperately looked for someone nice during our staying at the hotel...chou blanc...nobody, whaloo... Service is absolutely terrible...more than one can imagine... do not hope to get a "hello" or even a single smile it is probably too much to ask... They are slow and almost don't care about you...This is a shame because view is breath taking and you... More

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
