I was there with my husband for an unforgetable week-end, every hour the colors of the sea are different: light blue in the morning, during the morning blue, light pink in the afternoon, black in the night...marvellous!
The hotel is very elegant, there are some shops inside with sicilian brands of good quality objects.
In the hotel it is a restaurant, very famous for its good quality food.
The price in the restaurant is high, but it is a superior restaurant, of first class.

Room Tip: In front of the beach.

My wife and I stayed at Villa San Andrea for our honey moon. This place is magical. First the location: right on the beach and secluded. Our room with balcony had a view of the entire bay, the beach and the amazing infinity swimming pool. The hotel itself is elegant, well furnished and maintained. The staff at every level is polite, helpful and professional without overdoing it. Everything is made to make you feel comfortable and at ease. The bar / lounge area above the beach is straight from a James Bond movie, filled with an eclectic and cosmopolitan crowd. I felt like Cary Grant or Sean Connery for a minute. This is the type of hotel that takes you out of reality. It is very modern and has also kept the style of old European palaces in its practices.
My wife and I also took a tour of the area on a three-wheel large Vespa organized by the concierge. If you are in Taormina and want a unique experience, I highly recommend this hotel.

We loved it and disagree with the cavils of others. The food was excellent, among the best we've tasted. Outstanding pizza (really), tuna, and lobster with spaghetti. The mosquitoes in May were fine. Room and pool utterly lovely. Swimming and paddle boarding and waterspouts in the bay were great. Taormina can be crowded at the wrong time of day but lovely in the evening, as is the sister hotel with its incredible view. The pebbles on the beach are small so your feet can handle it, though you might need shoes if you've got kids that want to clamber over rocks. Staff were lovely and fun. And we got an upgrade. Our room was beyond compare. Intend to go back with the kids. Lots of lovely touches: international power plugs, really warm pool, the snacks they'd give us - biscotti etc - going to get a bottle of wine from the room for us etc. LOVE this place and the people.

Room Tip: Make sure you're facing the water - you don't want to miss that bay every morning.

The location is the best, but the rooms dont match the price, they are quiet average. Aswell the staff sometimes doesnt seem well trained or fake. Only the younger waiters that are not the manager, are very kind and nice. But, be careful, in case you wanna tip those nice waiters, give them the tip without letting the managers see it. We noticed that, even though, we had one nice waitress all evening, that the manager took the tip in his pockets. The value of the breakfast is average, non toasted white bread, boring selection of the buffet. The "wellnesscenter" means two rooms, doesnt come near a 5star spa. The massage though was nice, but again overpriced. At the beach they dont come and ask, if you wanna drink sth, you have to go directly to the beachboy. The pool service was very kind and professional.

Dear Guests,

I would firstly like to thank you for taking the time to review your experience at Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea.

We are sorry to hear that your stay with us did not meet your expectations.

We generally receive compliments for our staff, always praised for being friendly and genuine, but nevertheless we will take in due consideration your comments.

With reference to your observations at the restaurant, we have duly alerted our FB manager. We also thank you for your kind words on behalf of some members of the restaurant staff who strives for the high level of service offered.

Our breakfast consists of a rich and varied buffet along with a wide selection of delights in our a'la carte menu which does not incur a supplement.

Furthermore we will consider any requests which you do not see in our a'la carte menù or in the buffet and all dishes are made fresh to order.

Our wellness center boasts a unique open air massage area, located in our lush subtropical garden. A signature multi senses experience, whilst looking out at sea with the enchanting sounds of the waves.

I hope you return to Taormina in the near future so I can personally guarantee all your needs are met here in the Mazzarò Bay.

We are looking forward to a second opportunity so we can make you feel more comfortable.

Kind Regards,

Giovanni Nastasi
General Manager

There are many five star hotels but what sets this hotel apart is the warmth and friendliness of the staff. When we entered the hotel we were greeted by Angela. The first thing she told us is they upgraded our room. Great start!! The room had a spectacular view of the bay and there were biscotti and a dessert wine waiting for us. Many hotels have staff that are willing to help you. The difference with Villa Sant'Andrea is they love what they do and there is a genuine warmth they convey. The hotel is perfectly located on the water. You are able to enjoy all the beach has to offer without having to sacrifice the convenience of the center of Taormina. The reason for this is they have a sister hotel " Hotel Timeo " by the Greek Theater in town and they run a complimentary shuttle service. We met most of the staff and they all greeted us by name. Bar, restaurant, and housekeeping. All were standout employees. Mario Guest Relation Manager was especially friendly. Giuseppe, Martin, and Carlo were all wonderful. In the evening you are going to want to go to the piano bar to listen to Carmelo entertain his fans. You can't help but have a good time he brings fun and music to each warm Sicilian night ( we were the last ones to leave each evening). This is definitely the premier place in all of Sicily, staff location and accommodations. A sure bet!!

Room Tip: A view of the bay is a plus.
