            great for peace and tranquility and accommodation of staff...a very special vacation. a short walk to town center that is very safe and fun.spectacular views... a short trip by bus to a beautiful beach with few stairs which is a big plus in Taormina...

            not a kid friendly hotel which is fine...this should be a couples or adult relaxing vacation destination.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Loved the setting! We thought it was the best location in Taormina. Friendly, helpful staff. Great pool and pool setting.

            Drinks were outrageously expensive at the pool bar. It would be nice if the hotel would provide shuttle service to Isola Bella. It wasw quite a hike from the hotel down all of the stairs to the beach. it took a good half hour and was, of course, very hot.

            Perfect Hotel the best in Taormina in terms of facilities and location

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Our stay was absolutely amazing. The staff were wonderfully attentive and very friendly - especially Nino at the restaurant / bar and Mario at the pool. The atmosphere was very romantic and the scenery was breathtaking. It took only minutes to walk to the town of Taiormina - and the hotel also offered a very convenient shuttle bus service. We highly recommend this hotel. Bellissima.

            43 euros for 0ne sigle and one double gin and tonic is far too much at the pool

          • Couple
            4.2

            The only thing I liked about this hotel was "the view".

            This hotel is rated as 5 star luxury. I would class the hotel as maybe 4star, although that may be questionable.The hotel is extremely expensive, two gin and tonics by the pool were €32.00!! The staff were pleasant as long as you didn't bother them. The hotel provide a shuttle bus to the town and the beach, however it seemed that staff did not want you requesting this service!

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Our room had a large balcony with stunning panoramic views over the Mediterranean. The service and staff had high class. Good parking opportunities at the site. Although restautrant prices seemed high, they were fair in compared to the quality.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            Friendly staff speaking good English (and other languages) ; good location which is easy to reach by car (important in this area) free parking; walk into town uphill is good exercise but there is a frequent free shuttle as well;good buffet breakfast with eggs any style on request and outstanding baking; wonderful large terrace for breakfast and other meals; room with great view from proper balcony with nice chairs and little traffic noise; bathrobes and slippers.

            Not really a 5 star lux hotel standard; old fashioned décor not always maintained; very poor bedroom lighting due to ancient bulbs (partially fixed); unimpressive bath goodies; coarse sheets (for 5 *); one bottle of water on arrival only; very late notice of problem with mains water (not their fault but they waited almost a day to tell guests not to use the muddy water!). Pool was not open in April despite hot weather - they have a routine... The potential is there but it seems they are mean somehow and for this do not merit the 5*.

          • Couple
            5.8

            The location of the San Pietro has the advantage to be quiet, although the seaview is not so spectacular (even if fair).

            We decided for this hotel because of its 5*l and Relais&Chateaux status. According to us it is "just" a normal 5*. "L" and "Relais&Chateaux" means details and caring about your needs: this is lacking here even if hotel staff is moderately friendly. But still it took us 3 days to have a normal good cappuccino and avoiding waiting 20min for coffee at breakfast. Breakfast buffet is more a 4* like one. We did not manage to get a king-size bed even after asking. Bathrooms are small and lack nice details (E.G. they have a very cheap wall-mounted hairdryer (more typical for a 3*). We used the beauty centre and got skin "burned.

            8.2

            The hotel was very nice. We liked the nice envinronment, location, pool area, food, cleanliness of facilities and friendly staff.

            The internet connections did not work. This was really a huge disadvantage as I needed to get connected in the mornings and evenings. It worked only occassionally and required frequent re-login but still did not work. This was very frustrating and before we stay again I need to make sure that the connections work.

            excellent service and a very good breakfast

            I did not feel well between these boasting guests who wanted to show their wealth
