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

We spent 5 nights in this beautiful hotel. It is a very well kept place with all you need for some relaxed and romantic days. There is a large garden, a big pool and a beautiful beach in front of the hotel. The restaurant serves a great breakfast and dinner. The only things we missed were fresh orange juice for... More

We stayed a week in June with our 3 kids. The places beautiful and romantic, while also being child-friendly. Every member of the staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and to help us make the most of our stay in Sicily. The grounds are lush with scents of lemon, orange and lillies, and the rooms... More

All in all an excellent hotel. A very peaceful place, perfect to slow down and relax. The whole area has a very unique character and the castles garden is asking to spend time strolling around under the trees. The food has been delicous at breakfast as well as for dinner. Finally there are many nice places on earth - but... More
