A big hotel, but a little decadent and dated. The room is Ok, but it is a little far from downtown and at night , the street is badly lighted and isolated. The breakfast is well served and wifi didn't work inside the room. When we arrived, there was a excursion, and there was only one person to receive all... More

Altough it is put on the sign pointing the way to the hotel, this is not a 4 star hotel. The maintenance of the building is somewhat to be desired. Especially the outside, around the swimming pool could use an update. The rooms are no longer up to standards and could use some freshening up themselves. Som guests complained of... More

This hotel is in an excellent, quiet sea front area of Ghiadani Naxos in an historic part of Sicily dominated by the smoking volcano Mount Etna, with superb views of the hill top towns of Taormina and Castelmona. There is no beach here but a very large swimming pool and easy access to the sea. The hotel is very traditional... More

We stayed for one week in late August 2015. The hotel was at the end of a side street about ten mins walk to the beach. The furnishings were very traditional and lovely. We tried to book a room with a sea view but were told there were none available, even though we were happy to pay for the upgrade.... More

I loved this hotel. The location was out of Giardini Naxos and at the end of a no through road, so no passing traffic, although it was only a 10 min walk to get to the start of the town. So, why haven't I given this 5 stars. Mainly for two reasons. 1. We booked a room with a balcony,... More

If the accommodation was as good as the staff it would be a 5* hotel but unfortunately that was not the case, 20 years ago the hotel would be a good 4 star hotel but the facilities were generally in need of an upgrade, in 2015 you would have thought having a shower would be relatively simple but not here...

Just got back from a weeks stay. 3 adults in 2 rooms via Simply Travel. Parts of the hotel could do with some TLC. Staff are very good. Food fine, but predictable. Wine prices OK. Air con in one of the rooms was poor & the shower kept changing temperature. Enjoyed our stay but probably wouldn't stay in Giardini Naxos... More

A perfect family hotel where the personnel shows great empathy for its guests. The servants in the restaurants had a personalized approach towards their guests; they were able to get good contact with all age categories, from young to geriatric people. They showed a lot of enthousiasm and brought a lot of humor in their work.

We are experienced travellers who have stayed in numerous hotels, on holidays and for business, over a period of many years. As a result we have developed a reasonable ability to be able to discriminate between good and bad. The Arathena Rocks Hotel sits at the top of the first category. The staff are the principal reason why the hotel... More
