This was my second stay at the Grand Hotel San Michele, the first time was in 2014. Everything is fantastic about this place, the view, the elegance of the hotel, the beauty of the vegetation, the cute and small private beach, the kindness of the owner, the professional attitude of the waiters, and the amazing food (breakfast, lunch and dinner):...

The hotel was wonderful.The staff were excellent, nothing was too much trouble. Most of the food is grown on the estate and it was delicious. We would have breakfast on the terrace overlooking the sea,and in the evening dine on another terrace. Marvelous experience. While we were there they had 2 wedding parties and the attention to detail given was... More

My wife and I stayed 5 days at the Grand Hotel San Michele. Everything was perfect: the hotel is perfectly maintained, the facilities: swimming pool, fantastic private beach, beautiful garden, a golf course, exquisite gastronomy, kindness and professionalism of the staff and the family owners. We have found a "hidden gem" and will definitely be back. Thank you for this... More

its been in the family for generations, circles of friends come back every year for decades. you will understand why when you visit the private beach, wander the vineyards and relax in the historic halls. more than a hotel, a piece of living history with roots deep in the story of the region. Make sure you ask after the history... More

We were lucky: at arrival we were alone at the hotel. So we went for a walk around the hotel/mansion (it is really huge!) and the golf areas and the state. Later we went to the beach. The terraces are fantastic, with breathtaking view to the sea. We had tea and later, drinks outside. Unforgettable. The surroundings are quiet amazing:... More

Sitting on my balcony as I prepared for the wedding I was to perform there, I looked across the sea and saw a volcano. "No," says my husband, "can't be!" But it was Stromboli and what a thrill. Food was wonderful. I became addicted to mozzarella and tomatoes from my stay there. Room was comfortable but as we were there... More

Every meal here is delicious and prepared with ingredients organically grown or locally sourced by Ornella the owner. The beach is close by with turquoise waters and a cafe to lunch and the pool is fed by mountain spring water. Pool is much cooler but on a hot summer day is a fresh bath experience. You can walk the grounds... More

I gave this a fourth star based on the terraced location high above the ocean and mansion's exterior grandeur. Unfortunately there are several negatives. There is only one old, somewhat temperamental lift and care should be taken on the steps up to the lift and on steps in many other places in the hotel. Room 318 was rather unwelcoming being... More

Spent a week here recently, travelled with tour company, Just You, aimed at solo travellers. Had an amazing week, the hotel is lovely and I felt totally relaxed and the end of the week. The owner, Ornella, when she found out that I wanted to visit a nearby village, took me and showed me around, a truly personal service. The... More
