    Superb

    It is a great hotel in a beautiful location. The staff are lovely.

    The restaurant in the evening's did not match the quality of the rest of the hotel but there are better restaurants in Taoromina and at the sister hotel.

    A very beautiful picturesque villa belonged to a noble English in the past with luxury rooms and exquisite service with a real gourmet Sicilian restaurant and private pebble beach. Definitely one of the best I've ever stayed in.

    We arrived very late after a lengthy delayed flight and were immediately upgraded to a deluxe junior suite with an enormous terrace. The setting is breathtaking and the staff couldn't do enough for us during our six day stay. My work life is so when I choose a holiday resort it has to pass the test of "less stress is better". The Sant Andrea made my entire stay a joy. The hotel was formally a villa so we felt like we were staying in an elegant house, as opposed to a hotel. The food and wine unmatched a view to die for - overlooking the Med drinking a cool rose in the evening. What could be better. We look forward to returning soon. Ciao!

    We were so lucky to have a room with the most fantastic VIEW from our balcony. We fell asleep with the sounds of the waves. The sweetest people were working there. We will come back!

    The piano player was a bit too much.

    Superb

    The location of the hotel and the friendly and helpful staff.

    The rooms were small (we changed room after the first night although the hotel were very generous to compensate us for the first night's discomfort - noise and kitchen smells). The food in the restaurant is presented elegantly and the service is first class. The mix of flavours and quality of the cooking however, does not seem to be always commensurate with the price being charged.

    Unadultered pampering

    Allowing only one device to connect to the free wi-fi is pernickity when you charge 450 euro a night.

    The noise from the air system and the generators ! I don’t understand how you can make a super wonderful hotel and then have all this machines to make noise when you want so sleep !!! I booked this hotel be course of it perfect surroundings on the beach so I expected to listen to the sound of the ocean when I put my hear on the pillow … not machines !!

    Good services and hospitality.

    The hotel is expensive enough, so we expected very luxuary and comfortable room. However our room was disappointingly standard. The room is less than half of value for the price.

    Exclusive

    Service provided by all staff - a rare combination of professional and friendly; beautifully appointed room; absolute cleanliness everywhere; great beach organisation; lovely and interesting food and wine; location on the beach; shuttle service; wonderful assistance when we lost our luggage. Really, staff were so professional and helpful (as it should be, but often is not). Altogether you get what you pay for: a wonderful, relaxing treat.

    1. Wouldn't say "didn't like" is correct, but think the pricing and billing could be more transparent: for example, "dinner included" on the Booked.net website price quote needs to be clarified in terms of what is and is not included. This would not have changed what we chose, but for the sake of clarity it would be more accurate - this may be due to Booked.net rather than the Villa Sant'Andrea. 2. Think the hotel doesn't need to be quite so unsustainable in terms of eco credentials: does every guest really need a brand new pair of slippers every evening, or a change of towels not once but twice a day? - I know it's seemingly luxurious, but the planet pays rather heavily… a small change in practice would augment the wellness and healthy eating philosophy of the hotel, as there are sustainability limits, surely? A small but important point, in my opinion - but otherwise, the hotel is almost impossible to fault.
