We stayed at the Castello for two weeks and had a great break. The hotel staff were all very friendly and extremely helpful, as were the owner and his family - one day he made sure that the kitchen staff prepared some of the prickly pears that grow around the gardens specially for our breakfast, a very nice touch. The reception staff were great and looked after us when we had an issue with our noisy neighbours, moving us to another room for a night. The room we were in was very large, with a separate living area and a large bathroom and all the trimmings you'd expect (satellite TV, safety box etc.). As others say, the pool is lovely and the beach only a few minutes walk away. We didn't eat dinner at the hotel (no room after large Sicilian lunches) but the breakfasts were very good and they rustled up some great omelettes for my pregnant wife.
Hard to fault the hotel, it's a great place to relax. You do need a car to get about but once behind the wheel Taormina is only 10 minutes (and a lot of hair-pin bends) away and Catania just 30 minutes (airport 40 minutes). We'd happily return.
