This is a very private setting amidst beautiful gardens, and with a good view of Mount Etna and the Bay of Naxos below. The swimming pool is in a great location for viewing ships sailing past or just swimming and lounging on the comfortable chairs provided. A good bar and lunch is provided at the pool by very pleasant staff, so sun worshipers can stay there all day long. It is however only a short walk to the temptations of the main streets with all their great restaurants and shopping, and it's also handy for interesting sites such as the botanic Gardens and the wonderful Teatro Greco (the Greek-Roman Theatre), which shoudn't be missed.
The hotel is extremely comfortable and clean with helpful, friendly staff. Our rooms were on the garden terrace and consisted of a spacious lounge/diner, a twin and a double bedroom plus a smaller room with storage space and a single bed, two bathrooms and a surprisingly well fitted out kitchen which would have been great had we been inclined to cook whilst we were staying. It opened onto the terrace which had a large table and chairs plus sun loungers and a small private side terrace. This would be perfect for families or people with dogs, and in fact a few people with rooms beside ours did have dogs with them.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Belvedere and will definitely visit again.
