Villa Linda
Ranked #10 of 38 Hotels in Giardini Naxos
Reviewed May 23, 2010

This hotel is very nice, we booked in advance and they gave us 10% discount, for any question regarding the room, the owner was available and helpul, giving us another discount when we left!
Basically we only paid 60Euro per night for a nice double room with sea view. Anywhere else it was more expensive for the same kind of hotel. Breakfast was ok too.

The beach nearby is frequented by locals most of the time and if you don't have umbrella and chairs, you can hire one on the beach for 5Euro per half day.

If you are looking to stay in Recanati, stay at this hotel, it's also next to bars and restaurants.

After a messy breakup I took a week in Sicily for some peace and quiet and was really pleased to have chosen Villa Linda. The staff couldn't have been friendlier and helped me with booking excursions and recommended the best places to eat.

My room was lovely and had some beautiful furniture and the shower was well powered. The view from the balcony was also wonderful and got plenty of sun. The slightly ancient lift made me worry a little but I didn't have any problems.

The bus stop was very close and I really enjoyed a day trip to Taormina. The resteraunt next door which has been mentioned in another review was also excellent- try the swordfish.

Would certainly stay here again.

This Hotel was advertised on Expedia as being in Giardini Naxos and there was no mention of Recanti - The Thompson captial of Sicily - which felt a bit like the Costa Del Sol.
The Hotel itself was ok - but the staff were unhelpful and rude. When we asked to book a taxi we were told to walk 200 meters down the road to the taxi rank with all of our luggage. The breakfast buffett was substandard. The rooms were small, cigarette perfumed but clean atleast. We were not warned of the bunkbed that would also be in the room with us.
I would not recommend the area if you are looking for a nice realxing holiday as it is noisy and slightly trashy.
We did spend most of our day in Taormina or Catania ... and used the room for what it was a hotel.

hey guys we are not joking with how we rated this hotel... very clean hotel, breakfast was satisfactory, staff and service was outstanding and extremely helpful. Personally we never went to a hotel that made us feel at home as much as Villa Linda. Really and truly we have no bad remarks and will definitely go back for another visit... THANKS to all the staff for making our stay in Sicily one to remember.
P.S. Sorry about the Visa problem, it was all the banks fault hehe :) see you!!

we stayed in villa linda for three nights and we thought it was a lovely place to stay. the breakfast was a good choice of varied foods and we enjoyed same. the beach is very close and though stony it is nice for swimming and sunbathing. naxos itself ie the resort proper is within walking distance and there are some lovely bars and restaurants along the way. being a small bit outside is a definite advantage. it is also cheaper to stay here i naxos and to take a cheap bus up to see taormina which is really well worth a few visits. tthe staff at villa were helpful and friendly especially Tea prounounced T A . A lovely girl. the free parking was brilliant too.

nice hotel located only a stones throw from the beach - pebble beach that is hard on the feet but great for swimming and sun bathing - free parking on street - staff were very friendly / helpful and great english - view of mount Etna / Taormina from our room was beautiful - get the bus to taormina if your going up there 20 min and only 2.50 round trip - bus stop only 150m away - very good value for money

This was our first visit to Sicily and we were very pleased that we decided to stay at Villa Linda for a few days. A very clean hotel, buffet breakfast was very good, with plenty of choice. A quieter location, but close to the beach and some excellent restaurants within walking distance. Would definitely return to this hotel for the next holiday.
