A nice hotel room can be found in many places. But service like that at the Belmond Sant'Andrea is very rare indeed. A gourmet dinner and a great bottle of wine can also be found in many places. But the kindness, grace, and manners with which they are served at the Belmond Sant'Andrea, are very rare. Every staff member with... More

Had a great time last year and service was outstanding. Only problem was we could not go in water due to jelly fish (not fault of hotel).

I have spent the last 3 nights at the Villa Sant'Andrea and have really enjoyed my stay. The room was fairly basic but comfortable and clean.

Have just spent a week at Villa Sant'Andrea. The whole place is first class, the staff are always very helpful and polite. One tiny gripe would be the prices charged at the pool bar, slightly unnecessary, 9 euros for a bottle of beer, 7 for a small bottle of water or soft drink.

With high priced suites certain amenities should be available for free! Water in the room because it is very hot weather and we were thirsty all the time! No cream was supplied with the Nespresso coffee. We had Limited towels in the room. The housekeeping service doesn't start till 10 am so we could not have our room freshened on... More

We really enjoyed our 6 day break here, and remember especially the friendly and efficient service, going the extra mile like procuring a replacement iPhone cable that we forgot to bring, and finding Duran Duran tickets only the night before their show in the Greek Theatre in Taormina.

The best hotel I have ever stayed in. The location is perfect, you're right by the sea but with a busy town near enough if you need a little more life.

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. 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. ... more   less
