Pensione Villa Sant'Antonio
Ranked #17 of 38 Hotels in Giardini Naxos
Reviewed 15 August 2015

Just come back from 2 weeks here and found the small hotel to be perfect for what we needed.

As others have said, it isn't the most modern, but it has everything you need as a base and the staff are helpful and friendly - they don't speak much English, but we all muddled along.

I'd asked for a high room so we'd get a view and what a view! A large, double aspect balcony means we could always see Etna (constantly smoking away), the high up towns of Taormina and Castelmola, plus the sea - couldn't ask for more.

It meant we were on the 3rd floor and there aren't any lifts, but I took the exercise of 61 steps as a way to walk off a delicious all you can eat breakfast. This is bread rolls, a plate of meats and cheese, coffee, squash, cereals, yoghurts, a mixture of pastries (though most had chocolate) and my favourite - fresh fruit salad.

The rooms were cleaned everyday and the nice powerful shower always had plenty of hot water.

Just a word of warning - the air conditioning (free - as is the room safe) is very good, so if yours isn't working properly, let them know and they will put it right for you. We sweated it out for a week before mentioning it and of course wish I'd mentioned it before as the second week was a much more comfortable sleep!

The free wi-fi is good, but I think you only pick it up downstairs - though maybe some of the rooms on the first floor may get it.

We had a hire car which we always managed to squeeze in somewhere, as parking is a premium.

Halfway through our stay, it was so hot and humid that we needed to wash some of our clothes - we visited the local laundrette, but first visit we couldn't park anywhere nearby and the second visit it was closed - we mentioned it to the hotel staff and they did all of our laundry for free - excellent service!

We're not likely to revisit Sicily, but if I was, I wouldn't hesitate to rebook. Thank you.

Room Tip: Room 303, lovely!

pozitive aspects- a quite, nice place in a pretty good location, with big terraces- our terrace was overlooking Taormina, Etna and also the sea; the breakfast was plentiful and varied.
negative aspects- pretty small rooms and they did not give too much attention to cleanliness in the rooms;

Hotel
Simple cozy place away from the highway. Free parking. On the first floor - kitchen with hall. Second and third floor room for travelers.
This is a Italian family hotel. Most of the rest - the Italians from the mainland. Language - Italian and Sicilian.

On the first floor special place for relax after breakfast or dinner (sofa + tables + chairs).
150 - 200 meters to the center and the beach. The beach stretches along the city.

Breakfast
Execellent ! Several kind of coffee to choose from. Ham (cervelat), cheese, pieces of vegetables, eggs and something more.
And the most important ! Baking ! It makes no sense to talk, you need to try.

Room
In the room there is a bed, wardrobe, table, chair, TV, air conditioning, remote control TV and air conditioning, safe (in the closet), two bedside tables, three lamps, a "chandelier", a large mirror. Consists of a room, bath and balcony (maybe not at all).

Service
Linen change almost every day.

Sea
The sea is clean but cold. Coating of sand and pebbles. Most beaches are paid, which is not good.

Restaurant (cafe)
On the any taste.

For family with children
Specialized playgrounds in city.

For woman
Lots of stores for women.

A place you must visit in any case
Etna
Ticket for the funicular - 27 euros (2,500 meters) (There - back. Runs to 17-00. Who did not ride on the eleventh route (a little bit harsh Russian humor)).
Bus to the top (2940 meters) - 28 euro. I advise you to arrive early morning hours to 10-11. Buy a ticket only funicular. Rest of the way on foot. You will not regret it! Yes it will not be easy, but it's worth it!   I recommend!

You should have - water, some food, windproof clothing, comfortable shoes, good mood.

You can also visit - Syracuse, Taormina and etc.

Car hire and driving
Be sure to take the car. Rent only with full insurance. The smaller the better. Very few places in the city. Almost all paid parking that just is not very good. Level driver culture - below average. Do not use turn signals. Ignore traffic signals. The parking level is nice. Like to talk straight on the road, creating a traffic jam.

Buy cheaper souvenirs home in large supermarkets for local residents. Prices are cheaper at least twice.
For example. Sunscreen in the Giardini - 18 euros in a supermarket about 9 euros.

The Hotel has a great location in Giardini Naxos, close to the beach and restaurants, but is still away from the noise- Giardini Naxos can be noisy, especially in the night.
We came from Catania by Bus (Etna Transporti) and found the villa easy, comming from the bus station Recanati (10 minutes walking). You can't miss it, because there are about 3 signs showing you the way.
I was surprised that the hotel looks much better than presented in the pictures on the web site. The rooms are smaller, but we're talking about a 3 stars hotel in Italy. I was impressed about how clean it is (I even checked the places less accesibile and they were perfectly clean). The room is cleand daily and they also change the towels.
Because I didn't read all the reviews, I was surprised to find a safe-seposit box in the room, a hairdryer and a small TV.
We had a room on the third floor, with great sea view. Even though there is no elevator, I recomand the rooms on the last floor because they have a better view from the large balcony, but the disadvantage is that there the wifi has no signal there.
The breakfast is also great -a big plate with panini bread, ham, cheese, salami and vegetables salad and an italian snack, but also a sweets buffet with cakes, croissants with nutella and jam and fruit salad plus coffee/ tea and red orange/ ananas juice. You can serve the breakfast inside or on the terrace.
