We stayed at this Hotel for a short break in October the Hotel was full, good sign, swimming pool clean , bar full of old objects and old Wine press excellent choice of wines and spirits, well manicured gardens, good venue for a wedding, but fairly remote location therefore car necessary.

Booked via Secret Escapes, this is a little gem between Catania and Taormina . This old castle with outbuildings, magnificant gardens, swimmingpool and close to the beach is a perfect retreat. We stayed for 6 nights and spend most of it at the pool with nice bistro on the side for lunch. 2 days we went by car to explore... More

We had a lovely time at the Castello Di San Marco. The Junior Suite Accommodation was very nice and a good space, unlike some rooms which exaggerate the space with a wide angled lense. The facilities were excellent as was the service and the staff. The breakfast was very good. The Poolside menu choice was a bit on the limited... More

Unique and beautiful, a true castle and grounds but not far from Taormino, Etna, Messina and the beach - rooms and grounds are just as described and pictured. The restuarant COULD use a bit more variety, but was very interesting and tasty - there are others nearby that you should head to - particularly Palladio in Guardini Naxos, but the... More

The castle grounds and service is above par. The beach, food, drinks were above our expectations. Mario the Maitre and Flavia at the reception desk were fantastic hosts at the castle for us. They made our anniversary a dream come true. If you can ever make a trip to Castello do San Marco you will never regret it.
