Spent 7 nights here and enjoyed every moment from the minute we arrived. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful at all times. Special little touches included a birthday cake left in our room on my birthday. It was the week before G7 and the place was heavily policed, with some soldiers situated near our bedroom. There was some noise...

we had a terrific time, and our room was beautiful and very comfortable. Service was excellent, but food at lunch could have been better, and the whole experience was pretty expensive for what it was.

Villa Sant' Andrea is located on the beach...you have to take a funicular up to the main town of Taormina, which is easy to do, but be aware of this as there are only a couple of restaurants down at the beach area, and, not a great area to walk in as you are roadside with traffic.

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
