We had a really enjoyable stay. The reception was extremely helpful with information on where to go and eat. Great garden. Beautiful pool and it is definitely like staying on castle grounds. Unfortunately the wifi did not work in our room but the reception had no hesitation in upgrading us to a suite. Overall I would definitely recommend. But if... More

What a good choice thanks Trip Advisor. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this very pleasant Hotel. set in beautiful well tended gardens. When full it never seems crowded. The pool area is lovely and we found All the staff helpful and polite. Our large room ( 118 ) is very pleasant. Like most breakfasts in Sicily, this was not... More

The views of the Castello has nothing to do withe the real accommodation. The Castello is used only for the front desk service and most likely inhabited only by the owners of the property. The rooms are located in the backyard in the buildings more alike Motel with the rooms where the door serve as window as well as the... More

The pictures of the hotel sold this hotel to me when booking and what a great selling tool they were. The castle was once, I'm sure, a very magnificent building but with the exception of the reception area coupled with a some mannequins dressed in days gone by outfits you don't experience any more of the castle. The rooms are... More

Dear Guest, We respect your impression and thank you for having shared it. However we wish to replicate the misleading description starting from the fact that proposing illusions is not our goal and neither the way we welcome our Guests. We have no doubt that could have really happened but considering our reviews we belive that it is a genuine... More

Beautiful grounds, spacious room. Most staff were very helpful. Food in the restaurant in the evening was very good but was on the pricier side. This hotel is a bit out of the way which is great for relaxing but when we were there, there was no bus service and so we would recommend hiring a car to get around... More

Set in lush countryside very close to the sea: an impressive castle. The reception area and the library and the bar are all exceptionally beautiful and well decorated. Compared to these general area's the rooms are a bit modest. The rooms are separately build rows of cottage style houses behind the castle. The rooms are good but you do not... More

We stayed in this beautiful hotel for a week at the very beginning of the season - end of March. We made full use of the gardens, bar, restaurant and spa and went to a wine tasting evening. All were great both in quality and value for money. The multi-lingual staff were friendly and helpful with great local knowledge. Good... More

great place. confort relax and elegance are the best. really suggest. the beach is real sandy at 20 meters from the hotel but the pool is more than enough. the atmosphere in the night become romantic and you seem to travel in different epoch.

Insufficient superlatives to praise the whole trip, particularly the hotel . Food and drink can be expensive but never had a bad meal or bottle of wine. If you are thinking of staying at Castello San Marco, trust me, you will not regret it.

Stayed here for 4 nights at the end of a tour of Sicily. A delightful luxurious hotel where nothing is too much trouble. As others have said the grounds are very pleasant and our suite (136) was well equipped and clean. We stayed at the end of the season (October) and the hotel was not at all full, but the... More
