On the Taormina riviera, with the unconfoundable mass of Etna in the background and not far from ancient Naxos, San Marco Castle Resort of Calatabiano is a small and important part of Sicily’s treasure chest.

Commissioned in 1689 by the Prince of Palagonia, Ignazio Sebastiano Gravina Cruyllas, it is immersed in a luxurious 10-acre park. After painstaking restoration, some years ago the Murabito family opened the castle’s doors to visitors, offering the possibility to enjoy the warm welcoming atmosphere of this ancient residence.

The outside is suggestive: from the ancient towers to the park’s splendid gardens, from the Chapel to the ‘Palmento’ (wine-making cellar), to the labourers’ houses adjacent to the Castle.

Inside, large salons, lava-stone arches, fireplaces and splendid chandeliers: all the refined details of rich and ostentatious nobility.
The elegant suites and romantic bedrooms, all situated in the castle’s park, contribute to making your stay unforgettable.

The castle also has a well-equipped congress hall and it is an excellent place for gatherings and business meetings. The castle has various facilities: the renowned “Mastri Favetta” restaurant, swimming pool, fitness area, tennis courts and internet connection.

His Opinion: We stayed for 6 nights as a couple, and everything was very enjoyable: The Castello and surrounding parks get ten out of ten for charm and atmosphere, the pool is quite large for a hotel pool, the nearby beach is pebbles, but the private hotel beach (on operation from mid-june, just opened on our last days, which was a little sad) with umbrellas and desk chairs is quite nice. The "Italian" breakfast offers a wide variety of sweets, fruits, and all you might want except for cooked choices (which was very fine by us), and the service at reception, in the restaurant and the bar was always very friendly and efficient ( in our experience not always the common case in Italy) - overall a very well kept place, thanks to the Team for all your efforts. We intend to come back with the whole of the family next time!

His Opinion: We loved our stay at Castello San Marco. The pool was great, the gardens were lovely, the staff were delightful, the food was excellent. The lodges were comfortable. The one real complaint is that the bed was really not comfortable and the 'mattress topper' solutions were not very good as they didn't fit, so when you rolled over you fell down the hole in the middle.
We stayed out of season so there was nothing going on at the beach which was a shame as there was no way of getting anywhere else other than by car. Which meant that we ate in the hotel a lot...... which was no hardship!

His Opinion: Wir verbrachten einen wunderschönen Urlaub in Sizilien und im Castello di San Marco.
Die Lage mit Blick auf den Etna und Taormina, einfach herrlich, der riesige Garten, Park mit Palmen, Oliven, Zitronenbäumen und das sehr grosszügige Pool.....einfach herrlich.
Die Zimmer sind eher einfach gehalten (im Extra Zimmer für unsere Kinder gab es nur Zustellbetten) aber sehr sauber.
Das Essen ist auch sehr gut.
Es ist ruhig und erholsam aber auch den Kindern (5, 14) hat es sehr gut gefallen.
jedenfalls sehr zu empfehlen :)

His Opinion: Castello San Marco is a lovely hotel with "charming" (for which I interpret interesting and good quality design, with period features - not the average, sterile environment of chains) well equipped apartments (air con, power sockets, wifi, TV [if you ever needed it!], etc.). The pool is good, with an adjoining small restaurant for lunch. Access via a back gate to the hotel's private beach area (with lots of sun lounger/shade space). Spa is good, and worth a visit. Beautiful location - there were 2 or 3 weddings hosted in the grounds. Staff are incredibly helpful. Restaurant (breakfast and dinner) was good.

Only down-sides were: CSM is quite isolated - 40 euro cab from Taormina (which is worth visiting); sun shades around pool are too small, so you cannot lie flat in the shade; there were already quite a lot of wines unavailable in the restaurant in late July.

His Opinion: Fantastic setting near the beach and a great pool
And pool bar. The staff were very professional,
Courteous and extremely helpful.

The room was good but the mattress was extremely
Uncomfortable - this was addressed when I informed the staff
But I believe the standard of bed should be better for
A four star hotel.

The wine bar was beautiful but was lacking atmosphere.
Nobody every really went into it which is a real shame - I
Think the hotel need to do more to promote it.

Cadre superbe (jardin et piscine ainsi que des logements bien séparés).
Personnel aux petits soins et polyglotte et de bons conseils Vraiment excellent à noter.
les menus du midi à coté de la piscine sont très bien.
La literie de notre chambre n'était pas confortable, pas au niveau de ce type d'établissement.
La première partie de la propriété est louée pour des mariages ou autres. Nous profitons alors de la musique une partie de la nuit.
Bonne adresse mais un peu chère puisque nous n'avons pas bien dormi.

Excellent service, personnel très sympathique.

=> Liegen am Strand kosten 13 EUR pro Tag.

begrenzt vorhanden.
Ansonsten super Lage mit schönem (Kies-)Strand. Und extrem nette, hilfsbereite, freundliche Mitarbeiter.

We were unaware that we would pay for tennis, which is fine to an extent except the tennis courts and raquets were in a dreadful state. We were also over-charged for our taxi from the airport to the hotel having previously agreed a fare with the hotel at the time of booking.
