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.

My wife and I were finishing our trip up in Sicily and needed one more beach day. This was a great way to wrap up our vacation. The hotel rooms are clean and comfortable. The view from the breakfast area was just fantastic. There are many restaurants in the area so its nice not to have to drive anywhere. We... More

Find any other place in Taormina or Giardini Naxos to stay! The only positive aspect of the hotel is its proximity to pebble beach and, hereafter, a possibility to swim as often as you’d like. The breakfast was OK, but as the menu choice is quite narrow, it might become boring in a day or 2. Disappointments: check-in after 17_00,... More

We verbleven in deze faciliteit van 30 augustus tot 6 september 2014 We hebben een uiterst aangenaam verblijf ervaren. Een man genaamd Salvatore begeleidde ons door allerlei dingen, door het geven van een aantal handige tips. Afgezien van de, soms luidruchtige trein, zouden we deze faciliteit zeker aanraden aan iemand anders. Schone appartementen en oprechte gastvrijheid. We konden niet meer... More

This "hotel" is labeled wrong it's more like a hostel. Not impressed at all. My boyfriend and I stayed for 5 nights. We had to pay €3 p/day for wifi which is a joke since a bar down the road had free wifi while the signal was extremely poor! The host was welcoming to begin with. Breakfast was between 8-10am...

We had a very warm welcome from Salvatore the manager who effortlessly flits between Italian and English. The rooms were maintained to a very high standard, our room went staring out onto a roof terrace with beautiful views. The breakfast was consistently good and it was so idyllic to wander down, hire a sun lounger and spend the day in... More

Although the surroundings of this residence are not the best at first sight, the manager Salvatore made us an incredible welcome, was extremely helpful and always in a good and energetic mood. THANK YOU SALVATORE. The residence is new and the apartment was extremely clean, very functional, with good A/C and a great view on the sea. The rocky beach... More

The Hotel is beautifully located directly at the seafront with access to a sandy rocky beach. The sea in front of the Hotel is very clear as well as very clean. The views from the terrace are either on the sea or to Taormina and stunning in both directions. Rooms are modern, well maintained and cleaned every day. Most worth... More

We had a wonderful 19 day stay in March 2014 at Il Cantone del Faro in a 2nd floor apartment with separate bedroom and small kitchen. The manager Salvatore was extremely hospitable and welcoming, spoke English perfectly, gave good advise where to eat out, buy groceries, what to see in Taormina, Castelmola and other places, like Mount Etna.
