We spent some days in Sicily last week, we visited many interesting places such as Taormina, Savoca, Castelmoli, letoianni and we stayed here for 3 nights. We found this hotel very nice and clean, good food, pleasant staff and most important free parking.

We choose to stay here because hotel in taormina were too expensive for us and those affordable were not available. But we did good, because we payed a fair price, we had free parking and free beach access, besides, Taormina is just a few minutes ride from the hotel. We also had the chance to visit some other town on... More

We stayed here for five days on a coach tour. All the staff were wonderful - very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The bar staff were splendid considering how busy they were kept. We were especially well looked after due to this being a regular stop several times annually for many years, with Leger. The final evening's five... More

Seldom will you find a hotel where you are so well looked after than The Kennedy..We would not stay anywhere else when in Sicily. Apart from our treatment from every one , which is second to none,, in Sant'Alessio you are away from the crowds and it is a beautiful area to visit. A car does help but buses are... More
