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.

Interior room, no views at all, the windows do not close cause they were poorly built, the shower doors open inwards meaning that if you make the mistake of pulling the shower handle to the hotest you will get burned fixing your mistake, this literally happened to me, no WiFi in the room, coming back to the shower, you better...

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
