“Great Management and Hospitality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

The hotel is really comfortable and located 1 minute from the beach. Spotlessly clean, very tasty breakfasts, still I would like to highlight very pleasant and caring management, who helped us a lot making our stay unforgettable. I strongly recommend the hotel and its personnel!!!!!

Room Tip: Rooms on 6th floor have a big open terrace and great sea view. It was so warming to get a bottle of...

Super hotel! Spotlessly clean and a great location..Close to a lovely calm bay. In fact opposite
the accommodation. Bus stop left as you exit hotel and on the right..just a very short stroll. Eating places conveniently situated on the sea front..All Italian food and numerous ice cream and crepe
vendors. Oh yes, also a Kebab and Hot dog café...!

Perfect stay here. There are no faults..Friendly,helpful staff who always greeted you whether you be in the breakfast room or walking through reception. Light hearted and animated! Loved them..

Breakfast a real feast! Excellent pastries...variety of breads, cheese, hams, eggs, Delicious fresh fruits,tomatoes, and beverages, including good quality fruit juice! Staff work so hard to provide the
top ups at breakfast, Hygiene, first class..

We had a side room for 4 days, then very quickly were able to move to 4th floor with sea view and balcony..Amazing views.

So much to experience on this beautiful island, A few chill-out days just to peacefully relax. Go for it at Tysandros. You won`t be disappointed...So sad to leave those lovely people..

Room Tip: Go for 4th floor. Seaview with balcony. Wonderful view!

This was a very nice hotel! We had a renovated bathroom with a luxury shower (it had lights and a radio inside along with numerous different water nozzles all over the shower cabin). The staff was fluent in english, and there is also one guy who speaks german.

The breakfast was really good, they had all sorts of bread and bakery, bacon and eggs, marmelades and everything.

They have a covered seating area in front of the hotel, facing the beach which is really nice, smoking is also allowed there.

They do have WiFi in the room, but the only one that is really working is the one thats in the lobby. They use the same name for 3 different WiFi networks, so its a bit confusing...

The hotel is directly at the beach promenade, there are tons of restaurants and cafes within walking distance. Restaurant "la bussola" is the best of them (my opinion). Also the tourist information office is just a few steps away.

Also the bus stop for the mount Etna tour and some other excursions ist only 200m away.

+ The hotel is located a few steps from the nearest beach and that's the biggest advantage. The second plus is a view from the balcony(if you have a room with a sea view). Breakfast is fine and staff is friendly. There is a bus stop a minute from the hotel, where you can catch a bus to Taormina or Catania. If you would go on any trip, it is better to go on your own. Beaches are sandy, but there are a lot of cigarette butts on them. We found Sicily beautiful and sunny and we will remember this place with pleasure.

- I would like to start from the point that it is not a 3 star hotel, it is a motel. We found a lot of ants in our room and bathroom as well ( Thanks God there were ants, not spiders). We booked a trip to Palermo from Topflight agency, but how can we be ready for this trip at 6 a.m if they were playing music to 4 a.m from the pub next to the hotel ??? We are not the pensioners and we love to party, but why they are playing music till the morning twice a week, when nobody is dancing over there ? Otherwise, if you want to go on the party, there is only one club night, opened only on the weekends. The next thing is cleaning our room. We found new towels and toiletries only for the first few days, for the rest of our stay they probably forgot about us, I guess. If you would like to use the internet in your room, forget it, it is only working in the reception area, and not all the time. There was something wrong with the air conditioning, it was not working when you do not move, specially in the night. Finally, if you want to spend your holiday, and being woken up by Russians at 6 o'clock every morning , I surely reccomend this hotel.

Hotel is located just in front of the beach. We had a room facing the seafront and could enjoy our evening drink sitting on the balcony and looking at the sea! That was the highlight of our sicilian holidays.
The room was not big, furnished in a simple essential way but I found everything I would expect from 3* hotel. Our room had a nice new bathroom with radio in the shower. So cool! Always clean.
Breakfast was all right; not only croissaint and cappucino but a good selection of sliced ham, cheese and eggs were served, as well.
The staff was informal but always polite. They gave us some useful advice what to see, where to eat and etc.
We were quite scared to drive in this hectic island so we didn't rent a car but still with a cheap public bus we could get to Taormina or Catania. The bus stop is very close to the hotel. There is a possibility of guided excursions but they are quite expensive though.
Probably we will not come back bacause there are many other places in the world we would like to to see but who is looking for accomodation in the zone of Giardini Naxos/Taormina should definately consider this hotel.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2007

This hotel is rated as 4 star - while it is nice and clean and very central I honestly don't think it deserves this rating. The paint was peeling in the bathroom, the shower wasn't very modern or clean/well maintained.

The breakfast was terrible in comparison to those we were served elsewhere.

Staff were very nice and very helpful.

Location was excellent for sun bathing and walking up and down the promenade in the evening - lots of restaurants/cafe's/gelateria's around and plenty to keep you occupied.

Not really suited to young people looking for a lively holiday. Better to stay in Taormina. But a great place to stay if you are looking for somewhere to have a few drinks at night and relax on the beach or take day trips from.

Room walls are VERY THIN - man snoring kept me awake for ages one night. Fridge is in the wardrobe and was empty.

  • Liked — Location - proximity to restaurants and cafe's / bars
  • Disliked — Room and poor value for money
