Fodor's Review

Sweeping views of the castle, the sea, and Mt. Etna from this converted 15th-century Dominican monastery linger in your mind, along with equally memorable levels of luxury and wonderful food in the hotel's highly lauded restaurant, Principe Cerami (open April–October). Rooms have hand-painted or hand-carved furnishings, exquisite linens, and ultramodern amenities. Not all have sea views, but at this price you should make sure to ask for one that does. The San Domenico's Renaissance flavor is preserved by two exquisite cloisters, convent rooms, and the chapel, now a conference facility, and sensuous gardens are full of red trumpet flowers, bougainvillea, and lemon trees.
