“One of the Best Hotels We Visited”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

After a week and a half of traveling through northern Italy, we found ourselves in the wonderful city of Milazzo. We are a family of four and had a two bedroom with a balcony. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The rooms were one of cleanest we enjoyed on our trip and the breakfast was definitely the best. It was so nice to have our own little private beach. In the evenings we enjoyed watching the beautiful sunset and in the morning the beautiful sunrise. The sound of the ocean waves were pure serenity. We are hoping to travel to Sicily in the next few years and I would not hesitate to stay at the Riviera Lido when we visit Milazzo again.

Room Tip: Don't forget to ask for a water view!

I greatly enjoyed the cool waters to relax after a long day visiting Taormina nearby. This beachfront hotel offers everything anyone could want on the northern coast of Sicily. The staff are very helpful and speak English, some. The breakfast is among the best i ate with my group of 17 persons traveling from the USA , mid Atlantic. Rooms are sparkling clean and offer the sight of the fishermen catching the evening meal for the restaurant Trattoria al Mandorla, which sits behind the hotel on the bluff .A wonderful place to linger.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view

After getting stuck in a horrible place in Taormino (Hotel Corallo) that I had to pay an extra night for just to get out of there, I was desperate to find a nice place by the water. In Milazzo, we stopped by to see if the Riveria Lido had a room and after one look out the window at the water, it was an easy decision. This is a great place - clean, incredibly quiet except for the sound of the waves on the beach, and the swimming was great. The breakfast is very substantial but the restaurant was closed the rest of the day by the end of September. You definitely want a room on the water side and it would be hard to get around without a car.

If you want to visit the Eolian islands, Milazzo is the best harbour.
The Lido hotel lies at a rocky beach, with a view on the bay, not entirely so romantic as it could be, due to factories near the harbour.
It’s a modern hotel with convenient rooms and a small terrace with sea-view.
The breakfast is fair.
There is a big parking.
You can enjoy the sun on the small beach, there is no swimming pool and this hotel is not nice enough for a long stay.
There are no touristic activities in the neighbourhood.
You can not dine in the hotel, but Ristorante Il Pescatore on the main street not so far away is very recommandable.
The harbour is too far to be reached on foot.

This is a lovely hotel and i would not hesitate to recommend it. But, be aware of a few things:

1. the hotel restaurant and bar are only open "in season" - ie after June 1st. And it is a good 10 minute walk along a fairly deserted road to the nearest restaurant.

2. make sure you get a room with a sea view. most of the rooms have this (and it is pretty fantastic, as long as you don't look at the oil refinery!), but those at the back of the hotel have a view of a brick wall.

Despite these things, it is still a lovely hotel, with a good location and good value.

If you find yourself visiting Milazzo, Sicily I would recommend the Hotel Riveria Lido, it is a gem that should not be missed. The hotel is located on the bay side just out of the main stream of traffic. The hotel is a at least a three star and every room has heat and air conditioning. The staff is pleasent and does speak english. Breakfast is included in the room price. The Hotel has its own beach on the bay and the water is clear as glass. I had many pleasent stays at the hotel and rate it five stars.
