We spent the last 4 days of our Italian trip here. Felt like we had stuck gold! The hotel stretches along the beautiful coast of Taormina which is a pretty touristy town, but in a very good way.The gardens framing the beach are magnificent, so we felt the combination of floral and sea sand was the best we had ever...

We visited this hotel for just a day last year with all our family and vowed to return. We did and were not disappointed - it's fabulous. From its location to the quality of the room and food it is top notch. Obviously this does not come cheap but a stay here is definitely worth it. The hotel offers a... More

I stayed alone at the Belmond at Taormina Mare and it was truly paradise; the staff was so welcoming and the accommodations were gorgeous. Every day at breakfast I was greeted as if I was family. Being a single female staying at a luxury resort, I never felt over looked for the other families or groups; I was treated just... More

Well, if you are true fan of Italy and everything that stands for it, you'll love any spot of the bar area. Claudio, the bar manager, and his team are absolutely wonderful. They pull out all the stops and go the extra mile to make your time here one to remember. We found the restaurant too formal and were so... More

This hotel is ideal for relaxing stay at a truly idyllic location. Although the hotel is of the highest quality in terms of location, rooms and service, it still has a very friendly and casual feel to it. There were only a couple of minor negatives to our stay.

In my opinion, it is the most beautiful hotel in Taormina, such a beautiful location as it is right on the beach. The rooms are big but furniture does need to be renovated, bathrooms are beautiful and we had a great view.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With an exclusive location on the Bay of Mazzarò, considered one of the most beautiful in all of Italy, the elegant Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea nestles on its own private beach with new luxurious cabanas, facing the dazzling aquamarine sea. Built by an aristocratic family in 1830, surrounded by lush, subtropical gardens, the hotel retains all the charm of a private residence, enriched by paintings and antiques. The décor of the 64 rooms and suites reflects the nautical character and marine location of the hotel, with ample use of local stone and Sicilian materials and fabrics, creating a light, relaxed and serene atmosphere. The Oliviero Restaurant, on a panoramic terrace overlooking the gorgeous sea, is known for its fish and seafood specialties and traditional Mediterranean cuisine. The Bar, located on the outdoor terrace, is the perfect place to enjoy a drink, a snack or a light lunch by the beach. A Beach Bar and a Pool Bar in the new pool area are also available for a refreshing drink after a swim. Guests can benefit of the complimentary shuttle to the centre of Taormina, as well as the daily mini-cruise by private boat to explore the beauties of the coast (available during summer). The wellness centre offers a range of exclusive treatments for the ultimate of relax, while the fitness centre is fully equipped with the latest technology. The Smile Club with an English-speaking supervisor is available to entertain the younger guests with lots of fun and exciting activities.
