What a perfect place for a holiday. Our room, one of the suites, was stunning. Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and very quiet and peaceful - just lovely. Il Castello and its gardens are amazing. The Castello is steeped in history and is surrounded by very beautiful gardens, and these are in turn overlooked by magnificent Mount Etna, about 20 miles...

Three wonderful nights in the delightful setting of the Castello di San Marco. The public rooms are unique and are matched by the superb dinners and breakfasts. The staff could not have been more helpful whether in reception ,restaurant ,spa or pool . The lovely grounds with trees with oranges and lemons hanging from them everywhere and the constant background... More

We have recently returned from a four night stay at Castello di San Marco. It is a very friendly family run hotel. Our accommodation was a junior suite, this was very spacious, beautifully furnished and clean. The atmosphere is very relaxed and peaceful, and the staff very polite and helpful. The pool is large and the pool area quite stunning.... More

We stayed in early September 2013 and were overwhelmed by the sheer quality of the hotel. The staff were outstanding in every way - charming, helpful, fun and highly competent. The food in the dining room at dinner was original, well presented and delicious. The swimming pool was quite stunning and the salad lunches by the pool were great. The... More

Whether you're into the decor or not, especially the rooms ('Aida' on steroids, with more cherubs than a Las Vegas brothel), there is no denying the privileged location, the wonderful staff, the exceptional pool and gardens, and the private beach make this property a real find. Especially when resorts and hotels in Taormina are far more expensive and less restful.... More

You can’t help admiring it: beautiful grounds, well maintained gardens, wonderful private beach, big and beautiful swimming pool, main building is an old castle with a colourful collection of pictures and artefacts, with Etna...

We stayed here for 2 nights and absolutely loved it. It was not at all what we were expecting, especially after reading a few of the negative reviews. The rooms and grounds were beautiful, service across the whole was excellent. We enjoyed a few drinks at the bar and an exceptional dinner at the restaurant, served by an extremely lovely... More

My two daughters and I stayed at this wonderful hotel last week for some desperately needed together time. We virtually had the place to ourself, we were upgraded to a junior suite which was lovely. The hotel is run by a family who have owned the Castello since the 70's, it was originally a campsite. The family have invested a... More
