the staff were very good and tried hard to please with the limited resources at their disposal We had to wait for drinks to be brought up from cellar on several occassions- bar not stocked properly! The bath only had a poor shower with no screen or curtain. The room was very clean (sea view) but needed updating. Taps poor... More

My hsb and I happen to find Hotel Kennedy by chance, at 3am in the morning after driving a whole day from La Spezia, to get to Siciliy. We caught a 2am ferry (with the truckers!) and started on our way to Catania. He was determined to find a hotel, so we can sleep for a few hours before heading... More

I stayed here for 5 nights which started off ok. I would say you need to get a room at the front as I unfortunately did not. My room at the rear faced an annexe of apartments occupied by groups of rowdy teenagers who seemed to think it ok to have windows and door open with loud rave type music... More

Decadency has it’s charm. And so does Hotel Kennedy. Great beach just across the street. Big and confortable rooms with a small terrace just front to the sea. Sleep with the sound of wave and wake up to their beauty. All good about the hotel. And although the beach is perfect, the town it self is pretty graceless.

We only stayed here for one night and we arrived late afternoon leaving relatively early the next day but we loved the hotel. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We were going to a wedding reception nearby and they printed a map for us to find our way. The next morning they rang us to see if we would... More

happened to be in Sant'Alessio to look for a hotel right on the beach, with a nice sea front. Hotel Kennedy offers you an astounishing view, make sure you ask for a water front room. Rooms are simple and very clean, personnel helpful for all information you may need, great to have free parking space and the beach right there... More

Although this hotel is situated right on the beach front and should be ideally placed for a good holiday the food served is so unimaginative. We had half board but everything seemed to come out of a tin or packet, even the fruit on offer at breakfast was tinned fruit cocktail. After a lot of complaints the evening meal had... More

We did appreciate your enjoying the position of our hotel, right in front of the beach. Also, sun chairs and umbrellas on the beach are free of charge, for individual guests as well as groups guests. This is a big saving considering nearby prices for one chair and one umbrella from Euro 15,00 to 25,00 a day …. Our air... More

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I founded this hotel just in front of the sea near Taormina. We were planning to stay there 3 days, but becouse of the location and of the friendly people we met there we stayed the entire week. The hotel is very quite, ideal to spend some days on the beach.

We stopped here for 5 nights in July. It was decent enough, without being anything special. The rooms, decor and facilities could do with some serious updating, although being a family hotel it is understandable why this may simply not be an issue due to the costs invovled. Part of our family group had a sea view room, which had... More

We started our trip to italy form sicily because we wanted to visit Taormina most of all and then move to costiera amalfitana. We choose this place because it was on the beach and had a fair price. We really loved it. Great position, clean room friendly staff.
