This hotel is situated in a quiet part of Giardini Naxos and close to the beach. There are nice small shops and patisseries nearby as well as banks etc. It is family run and very friendly. The rooms are old fashioned but very pleasant with nice balconies overlooking the sea. The breakfasts are very good with cereals, fresh fruit, nice breads etc and you can request a cooked breakfast eg Eggs and Bacon. We really enjoyed the 3 evening meals we had in the restaurant. They specialise in fish and if there is a barbecue night do not miss it!
Taormina is a short bus ride (15 Mins) from Naxos and is well worth the trip particularly at night-it cannot be walked.

Room Tip: Room with a balcony is worth paying for.

Went to this hotel twice on our holiday and was one of the best meals/views you could possibly have,
Working as an ex 1 michelin star standard chef i can wholesomely recommend the food as the best in this area.
I would like to also express a big thankyou to "Clara" our hostess twice, and commend her for her excellent professionalism,knowledge and for being so kind,she is a credit to the hotel.
Many Thanks again,David/Flora.UK.

Best hotel experience in a long time. My good friend and I spent a week at Hotel Palladio. It was one of the most amazing experiences of our trip. The air conditioning in our room was fantastic! It was very nice to return to a clean and cool room after hot days on the beach. The staff made us feel right at home and were always happy, prompt, and full of information as to what to see and do. We visited Grotta Azzura (a must see) as well as Mount Etna (another spectacular experience). However the highlight of our stay was the amazing food. From the lavish breakfast assortment in the morning to the array of plates available in the evening was absolutely amazing. Their restaurant made some of the most fresh and amazing seafood we have ever tried, definitely a five star experience. Strongly recommended.

Very beautiful and unique hotel, charming, rich in character, with a magnificent sea view on the bay. Each room has its own character and style. Each detail of the building (rooms, bathrooms, stairs, common areas, roof terrace) are the result of the refined taste and talent of the lady owner Caterina Valentino. History, art, tradition and innovation are very well combined in this delightful hotel outstanding for its marvellous Sicilian ceramics and their peculiar wonderful triumph of bright colours used all around the building on floors and walls. It's a place where is highly worthy to stay for some days during one's individual Sicilian "Gran Tour". Not to mention the professional touch and great kindness of all the entirely female staff very involved with the most important associations for the respect of human rights (i.e.: Amnesty International) The hotel is set in a priviliged place next to the beach and easy to be reached by efficient public transport from and to the Catania Airport.
Highly recommended. A not to be missed unforgettable experience of beauty, pleasure, knowledge and relax.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the bay.

Everything about Hotel Palladio is delightful: the rooms, each with its own character and mood (do not miss the chance, if you can, to book one with a sea view); the food -
sustainable, organic, carefully hand-picked (especially fish and seafood, strictly local), masterfully cooked and served on a terrace with a most stunning view encompassing the whole Naxos bay; the staff - lovely and entirely female, from front desk to kitchen; the position - easy to reach and literally one step from the beach; and, last but not least, the owner Caterina - true renaissance lady with an unmatched talent for hospitality.
Be it for one night, or a romantic getaway, or a longer stay to explore the surroundings (a variety of day trips and excursions are avaliable upon request), do not pass on the chance to treat yourself to a 5-star treatment at B&B prices.

Ate in Hotel Palladio restaurant (newly opened to non-residents) last week, having read positive reviews on Tripadvisor. Delighted we did! Beautiful setting - terrace restaurant has fabulous views. Food fabulous (it's a good idea to order ahead, especially if you have any specific dietary requirements). I can still remember the taste of the sformato di zucchine! The 'wine of legality', from confiscated Mafia vineyards in Corleone, is very good and has a fascinating story. The staff are really outstanding - so friendly & helpful. I want to go back and stay!
