“Paradise”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

We broke away from the tour we where on during the three days our group was staying in Toarmina to stay on night at the marvelous Saint Andrea Hotel for our 25th Anniversary. I admit it was a costly splurge but the experience was well worth it. From the moment we walked in the reception area we felt special. We were greeted my the concierge and Thomas by name and made to feel like important guests. The grounds, facilities, and room were beyond belief. They upgraded us the a junior suite without us asking. There was an assortment of fresh fruit and chilled champagne waiting for us in our room. I put my bag down and turned to my wife for a kiss and saw her eyes were welled up with tears of joy. It was not just the hotel but the full experience, (beach/pool/service/room) that made our stay at the Saint Andrea a highlight of our 12 day tour of Southern Italy and Sicily.

With exceedingly attentive staff, gorgeous rooms with stunning views, excellent food, and immaculate facilities, our stay at the Belmond Villa was amazing. If you are looking for luxury and money is no object, this is hard to beat. However, we are certain that one could find a very good hotel with equally as stunning views for nearly half the price.

Friendly staff, quaint little beach. we rented a sea kayak and paddled around the peninsula to the house built in the rocks. the spa was excellent, we had a half day of couples treatments. the restaurant is great and the terraces are relaxing. you can ride the funicular up the side of the mountain, or take advantage of the hotel's shuttle van which goes between the sant' andrea and the hotel timeo every half hour. Go to hotel timeo one night for lunch or dinner, the restaurant is beautiful. we loved our weekend getaway!

This hotel is excellent. Location is perfect and restful. Gardens are a delight and very well kept. Cuisine is very good. Service is warm, helpful and personal. All the staff seem to be happy to work here and that makes a difference. The restaurant manager in particular stands out. The shuttle to the sister hotel is a godsend-very convenient

Room Tip: Sea view is a must. Room with a terrace ideal

The Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea is a gem of a property. First class in every sense of the word. The level of service provided is rare to find these days. The property is gorgeous, the staff is superb and the location is heavenly. Take advantage as well of its sister property, The Grand Timeo and enjoy drinks and/or dinner from its terrance which affords you the opportunity to see Mt Etna smoldering each night...bellissimo!

The Villa Sant'Andrea is perfect if you want to relax in luxury surrounded by a helpful and dedicated staff. You have to be willing to spend but tis well worth it. Italy ( Sicily) in this instance, is often a difficult place to find the right 5 star/ luxury hotel that fulfills its promises. This one does.

The hotel is perfectly located, beautiful view, quiet surroundings...yet fun as the beach, the bar, the restaurants are always buzing. Great piano bar and pianist who will play just about anything you can think of. Superb and attentive staff at all meals.Fun also because you are 10 minutes by cable car away form the town of Taormina, filled with shops ans restaurants. Yes touristy indeed but then again what am I ?...there are good little restaurants and terraces. Go for a before dinner drink at the other Belmond property right in the center of Taormina.

Serene because you can basically ask for anything and the concierge and staff will make it happen.
Get a room with a view overlooking the little bay should you no get one ( difficult in the summer months - July and August) opt for a garden view.

Worth the expense... I would say yes indeed.
