“Amazing Location, Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We stayed and had our wedding at the Sant'Andrea recently and it was wonderful on every level. They did a great job with the food and service, and our wedding planner Marilisa was excellent. We highly recommended them if you are ever to do a wedding or event in Taormina.

As a hotel you can't go wrong either. Luxurious and friendly. The breakfast included with the room rate is fantastic and the rooms have a breathtaking ocean view.

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

Room Tip: Make sure you book a sun terrace.

Our Junior Suite overlooked the beach from a lovely terrace where we breakfasted every morning. The bathroom had a bath and shower and separate toilet; there is also a walk-in wardrobe, a desk, small table and chairs and lounge seating area. Servicing of the room included floor washing and drying every day which impressed us for some reason! Turndown service in the evening. Altogether the hotel is spotless. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is a terrace bar which also serves tea and coffee and is a very relaxing spot amongst the lovely hotel gardens and overlooking the sea. The courtesy bus is to the Sant'Andrea's sister hotel which is situated at the entrance to Taormina's main street, Corso Umberto, and beside the Greco-Roman theatre. It is also possible to walk to Taormina - a nice walk but uphill! - or take a chairlift. The hotel is in some ways very English - toast is served with the crusts removed!
The hotel's restaurant has a very good sommelier and the food is delicious though the 11 euro charge for a black coffee left us speechless and charging a 5 euro a head cover charge even though we were guests was, we felt, unreasonable.

Just returned from a stay in Sicily at the St Andrea for my friends wedding.
The hotel itself is exceptionally clean with high standards of everything good and the personal is very friendly.
Bar facilities ok, but possess a fantastic asset in the form of Carmelo, this guy has an extraordinary personality with big communicative dowry .... Every piano bar should have a Carmelo
I will return, but before my book I will ask about Carmelo!

From the moment we entered the gate the staff greeted us by name! We were offered to be shown around and then taken to our wonderful suite with two bathrooms, a seperate living room and walk in wardrobe, not to mention the lovely long balcony.

Each day the room would be cleaned twice and lovely touches in the evening from the staff, candles and flowers in the bath, petals on the bed - very thoughtful.

Fresh flowers in the room every day - really lovely finishing touches!

Beautiful breakfast and a huge menu to choose from, a lovely beach setting each morning to sit and relax and listen to the waves.

We took advantage of the courtesy bus to the Sister Hotel, and what a wonderful view! definately worth a visit, we went most days. If the bus was full they would call you a private car which would be with you within minuets.

Wonderful staff and hotel with great finishing touches and an eye for detail.

Thank you for a wonderful Honeymoon!!

Room Tip: We had a suite and was better than I expected, it was set behind the main hotel area so had a higher...

We can't say enough about this more than friendly hotel! The staff was always willing to do anything we requested. Always with a smile! The setting, the grounds, the amenities were fabulous. It was an easy ride up to town, either with the hotel shuttle or the cable car. We had our own car and when we called for it, it was at the front door before we arrived at the front desk. Angela and the consierge and all , were always willing to help with directions, maps, and suggestions for places of interest. The dining room overlooked the beauty of the Sicilian coast. We have been to all the Italian lakes, the Amalfi coast, and the Italian riviera. They are all breathtaking, but Sicily tops them all. The food was exceptional as was the staff. We looked forward to our evenings. Toto, Roberto, Oracio, Anna, and all made us smile (laugh) more than we can say. After dinner-twenty feet away- we could have an after dinner cafe or cocktail, or nothing and sit overlooking the sea and lights ,listening to their VERY INTERESTING LOOKING piano player. This was a wonderful place to stay, and we will be back. Thank You for making our first trip to Sicily enchanting.

Room Tip: Any room with a terrace overlooking their beach and sea.
