We stayed here for five days on a coach tour. All the staff were wonderful - very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The bar staff were splendid considering how busy they were kept. We were especially well looked after due to this being a regular stop several times annually for many years, with Leger. The final evening's five... More

The owners are family oriented.. I will recommend this hotel to others. Will be a nice place to stay if you Want to visit Taormina. There is a nice beach there and also private for the hotel guests. The rooms are fine. The showers are very small. But this is what Italy can offer. No matter the hotel and the... More

Seldom will you find a hotel where you are so well looked after than The Kennedy..We would not stay anywhere else when in Sicily. Apart from our treatment from every one , which is second to none,, in Sant'Alessio you are away from the crowds and it is a beautiful area to visit. A car does help but buses are... More

Amazing! This hotel is simply great. The staff is incredible and will bend over backwards to help you. The staff speaks English very well, and are incredibly helpful. Looking for somewhere to go, a route or something to do? The staff will assist you with advice, print out routes and maps, etc. In fact, we needed directions to our 2nd... More

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
