“Good restaurant”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

When we arrived we were welcomed by the receptionist and she led us to the restaurant on the top floor. There we got coffee and a croissant.She informed us about the hotel and the restaurant. The restaurant is outdoors and has a wonderful view. We had dinner there twice and the food was good. But every morning at the breakfast table we got the meny and we were asked if we wanted to have dinner. It didn't suit us because we like to find local restaurants.

The breakfast was very good and not the same every day. The servants asked us if we wanted capuccino,espresso,omelette, scrambled eggs etc. They were so nice.
We had rooms towards the road and it was noisy both day and night. The rooms were ok and had a nice bathroom.

The receptionist were friendly and helpful. When we left we got a glass of jam.
But I have to mention this. Dont't believe all you read on the homepage. The socalled sun terrace was two old deck chairs and a very shabby sofa. The lava shower- it looked like a very old shower with concrete tiles if you don't know they were lava. But all in all we think it was a good hotel and we had a nice time in Giardini Naxos

We stayed three nights at the Hotel Palladio last month and it truly was a gem. I have spent a lot of time in Giardini-Naxos over the years and stayed at several different places, but this was by far the best. We had a sea view and it was lovely to wake up and see the Mediterranean and across to Calabria from our balcony. Even without a view from the room the roof terrace gives you just that and having breakfast up there was a great way to start the day. The room was very clean, bright and large. The breakfast was excellent and very generous. The owner and her staff were so very friendly we quickly felt at home. I would definitely choose to stay there again and I hope it won't be long until then.

Have marked as excellent as the hotel could not have delivered more to us. In terms of friendliness and comfort it was excellent. The sea view room delivered both the sea views and the bustle of the promenade and the petrol station which did not have any negative impact for us at least. The breakfasts were excellent quality and very comfortable - whether on the terrace or in the large dining room with picture windows (think we liked this best!). Our room was a good size, glazing somehow blanked out the road noise but not the sound of the waves and the air conditioning was good. As mentioned no reason to not mark as excellent - my only qualification is that the rustic, small charm was probably not 100% for me - must confess I prefer a bigger hotel with the facilities and atmosphere this provides but I 100% see why the hotel does get the rave reviews that it has

We recently spent 4 nights at the Hotel Palladi in Giardini Naxos and it was the most memorable time of our stay in Sicily. The hotel is not large but is a friendly family run hotel. We were looked after by all the staff and they could not have been more helpful or accomadating. The receptionists,Antonella, Roberta, Luana were amazing. We were even taken on two tours by Emilio the hotel handyman in a car provided by the owner Paulo Valentino and his daughter Catarina.our room was spacious, clean and comfortable with a/c. The room had a balcony overlooking the sea and on our arrival a special bottle of bubbly awaited us. There was tea making facility and a small fridge which was very handy. My daughters had booked this hotel for us as a surprise package to Sicily and what a wonderful present it was. On our departure the owner even insisted on sending one of the reception girls to help with the suitcases to the bus stop, so thank you Roberta.All in all a wonderful experience at the Hotel Palladio.

Room Tip: Look for a room with a sea view.

I stayed at Hotel Palladio with a friend in early September and had an unforgettable experience. All of the staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. We stayed in a room with pink furniture that was very clean, had lots of room, a balcony looking over the beach and air conditioning. The hotel’s private beach is right across the street and has a great place in the water for scuba diving (the front desk has scuba gear available). The location of the hotel was close to lots of great shops, restaurants and other beaches. There was a bus stop right across the street that helped ease touring. The front desk was very helpful to answer any questions about tourist attractions and the area. There was also a library and computer in the front lobby, as well as WiFi available for electronics, for easy research. In addition, there was a restaurant upstairs that had very friendly service and amazing meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I plan on visiting the hotel again in the future and highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Giardini Naxos.

We recently spent four nights in this lovely hotel and it was such a good experience I feel compelled to write my first tripadvisor review to let you all know what a super hotel this is. We spent 17 nights in total touring all over Sicily and this hotel stood out by a mile from anywhere else. The decor is so charming, full of colourful paintings and traditional pieces of furniture. We had a sea facing room which was decorated beautifully, all the rooms are distinct and special. Location is fabulous, right on the beach and surrounded by restaurants, shops and the bus stop to Taromina is oppositie the hotel. We were so pleased we booked here instead of the really busy and super touristy Taromina. The breakfasts at the Palladio were really exceptional, a good selection but the cakes are really special! They are different every day and I recommend that you try something new each day. Finally I would like to say how fantastic the staff as the Palladio were. I am a frequent business traveller but it is rare you find such helpful staff who cannot do enough to make your stay enjoyable. Reception staff were especially friendly helpful, the restaurant staff were great and the owner is happy to talk to all the guests and advise on local trips. I shoud also mention that the roof top restaurant is a really special place to eat dinner or lunch. It was by far the best meal we had during our time in this resort.

Room Tip: I would absolutely recommend treating yourself to a sea facing view in this hotel.

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.
