B&B Sole Mare
Ranked #46 of 54 Giardini Naxos B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 4, 2012

During our 12-day stay in this bed and breakfast hotel we were very disappointed of this accomodation. Although if one looks at the price performance relationship...

Although the hotel was only 80 meters removed from the beach but it was very loudly in the morning hours, though non-more was on as of 07 hours sleep to think. ( gruff dogs, the hospital is nearby...)

Within 12 days not once the bedlinen became changed although our approvals were met that the bedlinen is changed every 5 days....the towels were changed every 3 days...


Have breakfast about this we don't need to talk at all...just coffee and croissants.

Hallo,
we know that thir review is not true.
we have not any guest from Germany for 12 nights.
What has been said in this review does not reflect any truth and i think that if you are stay in holiday in giardini naxos you was in other place not in our b&b...
we change every 5 days linen, avery 3 days towel.
our b&b is very clear and quite and all ost sleep so well.
i hope that your review will be detele.
i want guaratee to future host that the our is a nice b&b quite and clear, very very nice with beautiful decorations and a beautiful decor;I think it was a jealous person to write this.

Hello,

We stayed 7 nights in July 2012, 6 of us, 3 young couples. We found the hotel really fast, since it's 7 minutes walk to the train station Taormina-Giardini Naxos, so if you arrive in Catania airport, I suggest you to take the Alibus (1 euro) to Catania railway station, about 40 minutes and then the train to Taormina-Giardini another 40 minutes. At least this way, you know for sure that you're going to arrive at your destination, since the buses (interbus) are not very reliable.
Near the hotel are a few minimarkets and restaurants, the beach is 3 minutes walk, but it has rocks on the beach and in the water, so you will need special shoes not to hurt you.
But you can walk (30 minutes) or take the bus do downtown Giardini Naxos for sand beaches public and private (10 or 15 euro per 2 chairs and an umbrella).
The breakfast is the same every day and kind of poor, but it's included, so at least try it one day, it consists just of a croissant, toast, butter and marmelade, coffee, juice.
The room has AC, TV (just italian), towels which were changed only once during one week, shampoo, soap given just at the beginning.
Paolo, the owner, was very nice, but talked only italian, so it's good that we had a person speaking italian, because for me it was hard to even ask for an extra toilet paper. :)

Overall, the hotel was nice and at a good price for this part of Sicily, and it is actually situated between Taormina and Giardini Naxos, so not very populated with bars, but I would definitely recommned it.

Room Tip: The rooms with panoramic view actually have the view in front on the hotel, not a wall like the othe...

The Sole mare B&B is a right place if you want to introduce real Sicilian way of live and hospitality. Yhe beach is few min. walk from the B&B and many small restaurants either. Paolo, the owner is always here to adviced you which one is the best. If you need rent a car, Paolo will find for you the cheepest agency. Thanks to Paolo and his son Sacha with their warm hospitality, I did not find only the pleasent place for holiday, I ffound sincere friends.

Room Tip: Any, with balcony.

Paolo the owner was very welcoming and friendly, he advised us to catch the bus up to Taormina instead of taking our car (1Euro return). The bus stops outside the railway station which was only 5mins walk from the B&B. The breakfast room is on a mezzine level and very cosy. The rooms are clean and comfortable and Paolo can speak English.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room with a view of Taormina
