Seriously! This place is SO nice, and good ... if you stay there, you'll want to keep it for yourself. Where to start - the resort is a family one, loads of places to eat, have a drink or an ice cream, good pay beaches (€10 gets 2 of you a day on recliners with an umbrella) and nice public ones, too. But it's low on youth bars and discos ... we only found one, about a kilometre from the hotel. Then there's plenty to look at - the museum at Giardini Naxos is beautiful and moving, if a tiny bit academic for those who aren't interested in the ancient Greeks, Taormina, also with fascinating ancient sights, is just 10 mins away, Etna is 30 mins drive with wonderful walks, Catania with its beautiful cathedral and hour away, and Syracuse about 90 mins away. The hotel is small with very friendly and efficient staff, all overseen by the owner with her ready smile and fund of information. Our room looked out to sea, was spacious with a good bathroom. Wi-fi connection is easy and quite fast (an good mobile phone connection, too). Then there's the restaurant - on a charming roof terrace ... great breakfasts, with local delicacies (or eggs if you prefer), fresh-squeezed orange juice. You'll be asked if you want lunch or dinner, and have to order in advance - and the food is really, really good. Hotel Palladio is a GREAT place to spend a peaceful and refreshing holiday. Enjoy it.

Room Tip: Sea-facing rooms are best ... and IF you can choose, select one on the 2nd or 3rd floors. The first...

Fabulous hotel! Staff are so friendly and welcoming, can't do enough for you. As soon as we arrived we were shown to our room and then taken to the terrace for a complimentary glass of wine. Perfect way to start the holiday!

Views were fantastic. We had the cheaper room that looked out on the road, but this was just perfect and we didn't feel we missed much by not having a sea view room. Especially as the terrace (where meals are served) has possibly the best view of them all. The hotel is very clean.

Food was....AMAZING! Best meal we had there. They waiting staff were very attentive and recommendations for wine were excellent. Also, the home-made ice cream was probably the best I've ever tasted.

Their website is full of really useful info. The hotel is a 20min bus journey from Taormina with the last bus back around midnight. We are so happy that we stayed outside of Taormina, as it felt that we were staying in a part of 'local' Sicily.

I cannot recommend this hotel enough. You will not be disappointed! We will be going back.

Room Tip: We didn't go for the sea view room, and had no regrets.

I booked this hotel based on the great reviews on TA and I was not disappointed. The experience at this hotel exceeded my expectations from before my arrival up to the last minute I spent there. Before our arrival, the hotel sent us quite an email with a lot of very helpful tips on what to do in the area. We arrived in the morning and were invited to breakfast on the roof terrace until our rooms were ready. The food was extremely delicious and there was a very large selection of home made treats, pastries and sweets, together with the staples (bread, ham and cheeses, eggs etc.). The roof top terrace is in itself very beautiful and overlooks the beach.

Once our rooms were ready we took up our belongings there. Our room was very spacious and overlooked the back road, I wish that I had spent the extra money and booked a room overlooking the sea like my friends did as the view is really nice. The rooms themselves were extremely clean and everything is in good working order, although if I want to be picky I must also say that the decorations are a bit dated. AC worked well and the faucets were brand new. A nice touch was that the hotel provides separate bins for recycling and organic soaps.

The location of the hotel is perfect - it is right across the street from a nice beach and there are some nice shops in the vicinity - all within walking distance. The bus stop is also extremely close so that's another big plus if like us you would like to go to nearby Taormina or don't plan to rent your own car.

My only disappointment was the bed because it is not very comfortable. But I think this could be easily solved if the management invests in some newer mattresses and beds. Nevertheless, I know that I would not hesitate to stay here again and recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Giardini Naxos.

Room Tip: A room with a sea view is well worth the extra cost.

I have just spent 3 nights at Palladio with a friend. It is our first time to Sicily, and Hotel Palladio was our very first experience having arrived at night after many hours travelling from Australia. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Right from my initial enquiry, the staff were always more than willing to help, and always responded promptly. The hotel is obviously well run, and they made us feel so welcome. The food is as reviewed by everyone. I never choose a hotel restaurant to dine in by choice, but I did here, and would again. They prepare fresh typical Sicilian food, and everything we had was delicious. The hotel is perfectly located. It is not a big generic chain hotel. It is like a typical Sicilian home. We were sad to leave, and I would definitely go back and stay again. Thank you to Roberta and Luana and all the staff at Hotel Palladio.

Room Tip: We stayed in the suite which is two adjoining rooms. Both had balconies with lovely views.

Just got back from a few days at this wonderful hotel. I would definitely go back. The staff is so kind and helpful. The breakfast was beyond belief (frittata, fresh baked/homemade cakes, muffins, pastries, cookies & strudel, fresh squeezed juices, homemade yogurt, fabulous cappuccino, tea, fresh fruit, etc etc.) We are city people so we loved the buzz and activity of this area. It is a great location for exploring. You can easily take the bus to Taormina and other nearby towns. If you want to explore further (like Siracusa), you can rent a car. It's easy to find parking near the hotel. They have some reserved spaces for guests or a nearby parking lot for a minimal daily fee. The room we had was perfect for us. Great sea view/balcony. However, if you are used to staying in places like the St Regis or Four Seasons and require 'fancy shmancy' amenities & luxury bedding and room furnishings, this is not the place for you. If you prefer a super clean property with lots of character and uniqueness and rooms that are cozy & very clean, 'cute' but not lavish, and a warm and welcoming atmosphere, then you will enjoy this hotel. Would definitely return to Hotel Palladio on the future!!

Room Tip: We liked the sea view room. It can be noisy (especially if you sleep with the balcony door open lik...

We have recently returned from Giardini Naxos having stayed for a week for the third successive year at the Hotel Palladio. it is always an unforgettable experience to stay at the Palladio, for its fantastic position on the seafront in the centre of the Bay of Naxos, the bus-stop outside the hotel, the railway station of Taormina Giardini a short walk along the promenade, the magnificent sea view on the breakfast/dining terrace on the fourth floor, the amazing constantly changing variety each morning of the breakfasts, the freshly-caught fish and locally produced organic food, the absolute cleanliness of the hotel and bedrooms, the wonderful always smiling receptionists who are part of what seems to be the happiest staff of any hotel anywhere in the world, and finally the kindness and hospitality of the owners Dr. Paulo and Caterina which we have personally experienced on a number of occasions during our stay. We would say to anyone looking for an unforgettable Sicilian experience to not to waste time looking at any other hotel in Giardini Naxos, just book the Palladio. However be warned...just a few days here will make you an addict...destined to return again and again!

Room Tip: Sea view rooms on top floor.
