We stayed at the Hotel Sporting Baia in Giardini Naxos as a couple with a group for 7 nights in November, doing sightseeing around the island of Sicily during the daytime. The hotel certainly looked different from the other hotels nearby, in the positive sense.The decor of this 4-star hotel was not so splendid, but the room my husband and... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in early November with a group of 12 adults, on a tour of Sicily. Good position right on the beach, some local shops to wander along. Room was very comfortable, comfy beds and large bathroom. All very clean, clean towels and beds made each day. Food was good, although wasn't really keen on having to... More

We thought we would stay at a 4-star hotel. But this was more like a boardinghouse although bigger. The stay was OK, we had a balcony with a view over the sea, worth paying extra for. Nothing was bad but not nothing was special. Ordinary, quite large room with simple furniture. A small TV with only three Italian speaking channels,... More

I stayed at the Hotel Sporting Baia with a group of about forty people during the second week of October. Prior to travelling we were a bit concerned about the quality of the hotel. Some of the reviews on the internet were not all that positive. As it turned out, however, we had a really good stay in this hotel... More

We really enjoyed our week long stay in June. Room spotless. Cleaned every day by lovely lady. Towels changed every day if required. The food was excellent and dining-room staff most obliging and since we had such a selection to choose from we "pigged out" The beach is just across the road but we only used it twice, too much...

My husband and I stayed here earlier this month and were very pleased with this hotel despite reading the negative reviews here. Admittedly the decor of the hotel is very dated however this is compensated by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff despite this being the height of Italian holiday season and incredibly busy! Our room on the fourth... More

Perfect stay if you are having active holiday - meaning not spending to much time in hotel, since there are not much activities within. Clean, perfect services, excellent location. Little bit noisy from outside on particular dates but that's normal and acceptable. The very pleasing part of the stay in hotel was the quality of dinner, having in mind the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights this month. The hotel looked lovely as we walked in. We went to our room and the electric went off, then came back on again. The second night we came back from the beach and there was no water. We could not have a shower, or flush the toilet. This put us off even... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of a cosmos tour of sicily, we couldn't of being more disappointed! The hotel itself is in a great location, across the street from a gorgeous beach and right by all the shops and bars. But this is the only good thing about the hotel.
