Travelers' Choice
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. Guests at Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea can enjoy all the facilities of Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo, its sister property located in the centre of Taormina next to the Greek Theatre.

The staff were great, our room was fine but the hotel itself is very badly positioned and sgares its small beach with other hotels. It faces north so doesn't get afternoon/evening sun. A full English breakfast (what it says on the menu) was served which is a real shame for a luxury hotel in Sicily, land of excellent fruits and other produce. If you want an excellent break on a beach there are better Belmont properties.

We had the most wonderful stay here. Our 3 nights felt very easy and it was the perfect start to our holiday. Everything was seamless and the staff were fantastic. Obviously this hotel is an expensive option however if it is within your budget I highly recommend. Highlights: - breakfast overlooking the beach every morning. Spectacular view and incredible food. - The complimentary shuttle between the Belmond Sant Andrea (at the beach) and the Belmond Grand Timeo (in the center of the town). This was a big plus staying at this hotel. Firstly because we didn’t have to constantly get taxis or use the funicular every time we wanted to go into the town. And secondly because we had access to two beautiful hotels. - Great service on the private beach, staff brought around complimentary snacks and treats which was fun! - All staff members were so helpful and also very cautious with COVID.

This is a delightful hotel, the rooms are extremely comfortable. The common areas are well set out. The dining terrace overlooking the Bay is delightful with delicious food. Very helpful and courteous staff. It is quite expensive for Sicily and charging 44 euros per day to park my hired Mini seemed a bit excessive. But having said that I am sure we will return.

We stayed at the Belmond beginning of September 2020. On arriving it is a beautiful hotel that can’t be faulted , it’s picturesque , peaceful & the staff are very helpful. The beach is nice, set in a peaceful bay. It’s pebbly and you only get the sun until 4pm. It’s nice for snorkelling. It’s worth bringing good beach shoes ! The food is outstanding!! But it is very expensive. A glass of wine is 25 euros. The sister hotel is again beautiful with stunning views & the town or Taormina is just lovely.

We just returned from a stay at the Belmond Sant Andrea. Simply wonderful hotel. Stunning setting, amazing food and the staff are all fabulous. We were made to feel very welcome at the hotel and the service is personal, professional and nothing is too much trouble. We had a fantastic stay. Thank you to the staff at the front desk, the beach guys, housekeeping, the restaurant staff and the bar staff. Too many to name them all, but each of you made our stay thoroughly enjoyable. A huge thank you from us and we will be back! Pietro, your Colada Cabana cocktail is perfect!
