The hotel is on the border of Taormina and Giardini Naxos. Partial ocean view is definitely not from the room. You need to go outside to a common terrace with only one small table. To get to Taormina you need to drive or take a bus for $3 euros one way. Not enough hot water, I had to take a...

Hotel location is right on the sea cost. Rooms are wide and clean, parking and restaurant availability. 5 minutes drive from Taormina, bus stop very close to the property! As the hotel located on the beach, this was best experience and view ever. Great location, we liked it better than to stay in Taormina where is very crowdy and not...

Il cantone del faro is situated just at the end of Giardini Naxos. Great base to explore the area as groceries, good ice creams shops and restaurants were close by. Public transport is also 2 minutes on foot so was no problem for us. Recommend to purchase a weekly ticket with airport transfer included. Cheaper. Toarmina was fanatastic to visit....

We booked this place in a rush the night before while in Palermo and weren't expecting much. The approach to the hotel wasn't exactly alluring but what lay within was spot on. The rooms were big, very clean and the showers are amazing. The whole place feels fresh and new, yet without lacking character. The setting on the beach front...

These northeastern Sicilian towns are a must see! The food is delicious and cheap, very quaint trattorias, ristorante, deli's, beautiful art and ceramic galleries. We stayed at the Il Cantone Del Faro Hotel in Giardini Naxos, about 3 kilometers from Taormina. This splendid hotel, with very reasonable rates, sits on the beach, with a train station 1 km away. Beautiful...

No place for kids. No place for beach life.(Rocks and pebbles) . We rented a car and toured the island. Place is ok for that, but for no more than a week. Few restaurants in neighbourhood. We hired "Wind" portable wifi at the car rental (Sicily by Car). Worked ok. Few Euros/day and no worries.
