Great and wide room, right in front of the sea. Cleaned and nearby refurnished room. Availability of parking spaces...you will ever find a place where to park. The only 2 major point of discussion where: 1) we booked a room for 2 and we received an upgrade to the apt with 4 beds. Unfortunately we have been then downgraded since... More

Il cantone del faro is situated just at the end of Giardini Naxos. Great base to explore the area as groceries, good ice creams shops and restaurants were close by. Public transport is also 2 minutes on foot so was no problem for us. Recommend to purchase a weekly ticket with airport transfer included. Cheaper. Toarmina was fanatastic to visit.... More

We booked this place in a rush the night before while in Palermo and weren't expecting much. The approach to the hotel wasn't exactly alluring but what lay within was spot on. The rooms were big, very clean and the showers are amazing. The whole place feels fresh and new, yet without lacking character. The setting on the beach front... More

These northeastern Sicilian towns are a must see! The food is delicious and cheap, very quaint trattorias, ristorante, deli's, beautiful art and ceramic galleries. We stayed at the Il Cantone Del Faro Hotel in Giardini Naxos, about 3 kilometers from Taormina. This splendid hotel, with very reasonable rates, sits on the beach, with a train station 1 km away. Beautiful... More

No place for kids. No place for beach life.(Rocks and pebbles) . We rented a car and toured the island. Place is ok for that, but for no more than a week. Few restaurants in neighbourhood. We hired "Wind" portable wifi at the car rental (Sicily by Car). Worked ok. Few Euros/day and no worries.

Good appartement on the sea side. Great view. Excellent hospitality. Kitchen equipment limited. Clean and recommended. We were in mid winter but sure the place is paradise in summer. Taormina town is appropriate 20 minutes by car.
