What a great Hotel - the service is impeccable. We had a great room with a private terrace where we had breakfast every morning (included in the price). The setting overlooking the bay was stunning. The staff were exceptional, always pleasant and helpful with just enough attentiveness without smothering you. The hotel was one of the cleanest we have ever stayed in outside Switzerland. Rooms throughly cleaned and replenished without fuss even when we got up very late. The rooms are not generous in size - be sure to book a sun terrace as it makes all the difference.
The beach and terrace bar are real highlights again with staff anticipating your every need. We also took advantage of the shuttle service to have dinner at the sister Hotel Timeo high on the mountain in Taormina. The food and terrace views were even more exceptional.
Obviously this level of luxury comes at a price - but overall it is good value and if you search you can get deals on stays outside the main season.
The restaurant was good but there are even better available in Taormina.
Cannot think of any downsides except Catania airport which has the smallest VIP lounge in the world - standing room only!
Villa Sant'Andrea is throughly recommended
