We stayed for a week in early July 2015. The hotel is about 37 miles from Catania airport and situated right on the rocks with direct access to the sea. There is also a salt water swimming pool. The snorkelling is superb - very clear water with an abundance of fish and the rocks make for caves, overhangs, pits etc.... More

We have just had two weeks here and using local transport and organised trips experienced the history, landscape and beauty of the island. The hotel is quirky, authentic, friendly and more than good for anyone wanting a great place to swim, eat, walk and explore. If you are wondering where to go in this part of Sicily then go and...

The hotel is well situated about 10-12 mins walk along the sea front from town ,so a quiet spot with a couple of local restaurant/bars nearby and more as you walk into town ,all quite reasonably priced .The beach is a bit farther...

Everything good, worth the extra for sea view. Staff friendly and attentive. Breakfast and dinner had ample variety and was consistently good. Local resort round the corner had all you need. Large seawater pool with plenty of surrounding space and garden.

We spent two weeks here at the end of May. A pleasant hotel with lots of character. There are lots of tasteful artefacts from all over Sicily displayed throughout the hotel, the gardens overlooking the sea are very pretty, the pool area is clean, we never had to wait for sun loungers, the water was fairly cold and was sea...

This hotel is quite nice. It has both a pool and unsupervised swimming in the sea. The public areas are decorated with antiques gathered from all over Sicily. Some rooms have balconies overlooking the sea. Our room was windowless but reasonably spacious. They serve a nice breakfast buffet and have a bar open during the day. The grounds are nicely... More

... Is key and the hotel has one of the best! Yes you will have to walk a kilometer to go to the center of the city but on the other hand you have 5 steps to jump from the hotel to the sea (direct access). Rooms are good and big enough. Overall the clients seems to be retired people... More

When looking for hotels in Giardini Naxos it was quite hard to find many appealing hotels as most in the town where quite small and didn't have a pool. We found the Arathena Rocks Hotel just out of the town. The rooms where massive in comparison to other hotels that I looked at and the pool was brilliant. After reading... More
