The hotel is situated at the end of the road, very calm and quite. Secure parking provided at the back gate. The hotel has a charm to it as the reception is situated in an old castle. Sad that they put carpets everywhere and do not maintain them. I would say unhygienic. Breakfast buffet is served from 8-10, the spread... More

If you want serious peace and tranquillity, this is the place for you. We had a junior suite which was effectively a villa situated approx. 5 minutes from the reception. We were taken with our bags by golf buggy! The suite was very comfortable and cool with plenty of storage space, a plus for my wife! The bed was slightly... More

We spent 5 days in this hotel and we would have never left, the pool and the garden are very good and the service is very friendly. Total relax with a great spa and private beach. Great for a family holiday, there is also possibility to horse ride nearby.

How to describe Castello di San Marco is somewhat challenging as it is neither a typical hotel in a castle nor is it a typical resort, however here goes. The roadway towards the castle is not attractive; however this immediately changes once inside the main gate of the Castello, as the main building is very attractive and the gardens are... More

A charming, quite and pleasant hotel. Comfortable and cozy rooms. The gardens and public areas are beautiful from which one has the views of Mt. Etna. The pool is excellent and the private beach few steps away. Very friendly staff. We enjoyed the SPA with excellent massage treatments by charming Debora and Simona. Very enjoyable place

A really lovely hotel in a beautiful setting. Gardens are like an oasis, staff very friendly and room was spotless. It's nice being away from taormina which is very busy. Hotel pool was so warm that we couldn't keep out of it. Food great and wine lovely too. Staff could not do enough for us. Would recommend highly.

It is impossible to write anything too critical about this hotel. The grounds are stunning, the pool is fantastic and the restaurant is as good as the best that Taormina offers if you don't want a diet of pizzas & pasta. This is one of the best hotels we have stayed in. Our Junior Suite was hidden amongst the palms... More

We stayed here for a week and had a great time, the room was lovely, really spacious and clean. The staff were friendly but we did have to ask for any information we wanted we were left to our own devices to an extent and they could perhaps be a bit more helpful with restaurant ideas etc and check in...
