Fabulous location for Capo dei Greci resort - even if we failed entrance from "strada statale 114", 2 times, :-) in both directions (entrance hidden by vegetation). But once broke in, I discovered an oasis of beauty and vegetation. Unfortunately, in September 2012 (and probably due to crisis) just one restaurant from 5 was open, disco closed, no much entertainment opportunities inside. Of great help was shuttle bus that took us up to Taormina and back (for which you must register at reception the evening before).
No beach nearby hotel – but who cares? Using a lift and walking through a tunnel carved in rock (spectacular) can reach a very nice and large wooden platform (sustained by steel reinforced - thus very safe) with umbrellas, chaise, showers, restrooms, lifeguard and bar (bar also closed at that time) with stairs descending directly to water. Water – absolutely gorgeous!!. No problem that there was no sandy beach, considering the beauty of the area and also the existing beaches before and after km 38 (where the hotel is located). No little kids around – the whole place is recommended mostly for adults.
2 panoramic pools, situated on the top of the resort, make you to feel incredible on the top of the world – it’s exactly as in the professional photo from site.
Our room was with sea view, situated on last building in front of sea, at the right side of the resort, at first level (on the ground) and we had the possibility to stay in front of the room, on chairs, with our green garden plenty of flowers in front of us, with little bunnies running in the grass in the evening and night, with all seashore lightened – splendid. One single night we were lucky enough to see also the spectacular “pink cloud” above the volcano Etna.
Before km38 (the indication for our Hotel): Taormina and Giardini Naxos.
Giardini Naxos - heavenly place (they knew the Greeks, way to build here the first town in the island …) the wide beach, sand and a lot of good restaurants on the Riviera. The only crazy thing was parking the car (uncovered large parking out of the town).
About Taormina – I’ll not write more words, because there is a lot of infos referring to this fantastic place and Greek Theater with his impressive panorama.
After km38 – Sant Alesio Siculo, a cozy area, with a long wide beach, but with pebbles, less arranged than Giardini Naxos, but with enticing promenade. Sunsets are fascinating all over in this part of the island.
It’s recommended to rent a car, if you want to see the beauty of this island and it’s recommended to eat in different places, anywhere food was very good, fish or meat, everything was ok ( Mediterranean food, ehei… )
