My two daughters and I stayed at this wonderful hotel last week for some desperately needed together time. We virtually had the place to ourself, we were upgraded to a junior suite which was lovely. The hotel is run by a family who have owned the Castello since the 70′s, it was originally a campsite. The family have invested a lot of money over the last 10 years to make it a delightful quiet hotel, it’s now their pride and joy. The Castello San Marco is very popular for weddings, not surprisingly….. Even my very fussy daughters said they would consider this venue, if and when they marry. The layout of the hotel means they successfully keep hotel guests and wedding party guests separate easily, therefore no disturbances for hotel guests. Whilst we stayed there they hosted 4 weddings and you would never have noticed.
You do need a car as taxi’s to Taormina are around 70 euro’s for a round trip.
My only criticism was that lunch around the pool was very limited, offering only sandwiches I would have killed for a salad having eaten so much wonderful pasta in various local restaurants.
