    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1045 reviewsTripAdvisor (1045)
    Free WiFi

    Nestled within Mount Tauro's cliffs in the Sicilian city of Taormina, the Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo is a popular retreat for couples and families. In all of the property's 70 guest rooms and suites, you'll find neutral color palettes with hardwood floors, marble bathrooms and bright accent linens and throw pillows, plus in-room perks like free Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations. Upgraded accommodations, which recent travelers said were well worth the added expense, include balconies or terraces with expansive views of the bay, city or Mount Etna. You'll also find picturesque vistas from the property's three restaurants, which specialize in Sicilian and Mediterranean fare, and The Literary Terrace & Bar. Other on-site amenities include several gardens, a spa and a heated swimming pool. Additionally, a private beach – accessible via the Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo's complimentary shuttle – is available at the hotel's sister property, the Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea. And if you stay during the summer months, consider participating in one of the hotel's free boat excursions around Sicily's east coast. Keep in mind, though, that the Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo is closed annually from mid-November to mid-March.

    San Domenico Palace Hotel

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1361 reviewsTripAdvisor (1361)
    Free WiFi

    The San Domenico Palace Hotel is located in central Taormina on the Italian island of Sicily. Standard rooms feature traditional Sicilian decor, plus LCD televisions, minibars and views of Taormina or the property's cloisters, while upgraded rooms and suites overlook the garden, Mount Etna, the adjacent bay or Taormina's ancient Greek theater. Select accommodations also come with perks like espresso machines and terraces with private plunge pools. Outside the rooms, guests can enjoy a spa treatment at the Beauty Corner; sip a cocktail at one of three bars; swim in the seasonal outdoor pool; or break a sweat in the 24-hour fitness center. Free shuttle service to and from area beaches is provided as well, and three restaurants are available on-site for meals. Les Bougainvillées – the only year-round option – serves Sicilian and international dishes; Il Giardino dei Limoni offers Mediterranean-inspired bites by the pool; and at the two Michelin star-awarded Principe Cerami, diners can savor gourmet Sicilian fare. Past lodgers praised Les Bougainvillées' breakfasts and The Principe Cerami's dinners, although some reported slow service and felt their meals were overpriced. But, members of The Leading Hotels of the World's Leaders Club loyalty program receive complimentary breakfast daily.

    Hotel Villa Athena
    Agrigento
    #5 in Best Hotels in Sicily
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1951 reviewsTripAdvisor (1951)
    Free WiFi

    Located near the southwestern coast of Sicily, the Hotel Villa Athena is the only five-star hotel within the archeological park occupied by the Valley of the Temples, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Recent guests raved about the property's stunning views and luxurious accommodations. Guest rooms, which were recently renovated, are outfitted with crisp white decor, flat-screen TVs, marble bathrooms and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Travelers suggest upgrading to a room or suite with views of the Temple of Concordia for additional space and added amenities, such as terraces and writing desks. When you're not taking in the view from your digs, you can lounge by the pool, indulge in a treatment at the spa or travel a few miles to the coast for beach service in San Leone. Visitors can also participate in a variety of cooking classes led by the villa's chef. If culinary arts aren't your thing, you can still enjoy the fare (and the temple views) at La Terrazza degli Dei, the on-site restaurant, before grabbing a nightcap at the Bar Federico II. And while recent guests will tell you that a stay here will cost you a pretty penny, all agreed the Hotel Villa Athena is worth the splurge.

    Grand Hotel Minareto

    #14 in Best Hotels in Sicily
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1466 reviewsTripAdvisor (1466)
    Free WiFi

    Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, the Grand Hotel Minareto is set in a secluded, picturesque spot on the southeastern coast of Sicily. Guests can unwind with a book on the private beach, go for a dip in the infinity pool, relax in the two Jacuzzis, work up a sweat in the fitness center or meander through the on-site gardens. As far as sleeping arrangements are concerned, rooms and suites come with LCD televisions, marble bathrooms, minibars, free Wi-Fi access, safes and amenity kits. Though not every accommodation is equipped with a balcony, all include a buffet breakfast as part of the room rate. When it's time for lunch or dinner, travelers can sample the Mediterranean flavors of Nesos Restaurant or enjoy casual eats and drinks at the Pool Bar & Restaurant or the Lobby Bar. Overall, past travelers offer conflicting reviews of this resort. Some said they loved the property's furnishings, food and features, but others were annoyed with its remote location. And while the hotel does offer a courtesy shuttle to and from Ortigia's historic center (about 6 miles north), it operates on a limited and specific schedule, which some found frustrating.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1196 reviewsTripAdvisor (1196)
    Free WiFi

    Located on the northern tip of Vulcano, a small island near Sicily, Therasia Resort Sea & Spa appeals to honeymooners and vacationers in search of an idyllic setting. This cliffside resort, including its two infinity pools and upgraded accommodations, overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea. Standard rooms use local materials in their designs and offer minibars with complimentary soft drinks, free internet access and balconies or terraces, but past travelers recommended reserving an ocean-facing room or suite for the best panoramas. Facilities like a spa, a fitness center, two bars and three Sicilian restaurants are available as well, but many cited issues with these perks. Previous guests said the waitstaff was slow and argumentative at the Michelin-starred Il Cappero, while some bemoaned the small, bug-filled gym and the bars' pricey drinks. A few reviewers also lamented the rooms' dated decor and spotty Wi-Fi service. However, visitors appreciated the complimentary beach shuttle and the spa's pool, sauna and Turkish bath.
