The review includes only the best hotels in Giardini Naxos, according to the feedback of our readers and customers. A prerequisite for getting into the rating is the availability of parking, a sandy beach nearby, and a working free Wi-Fi.
UNAHOTELS Naxos Beach Sicilia
The 4-star UNAHOTELS is on the seafront and has its private beach opened from May to September. This hotel is the first in the list since I go in for sports – I run and swim, and there are as many as four swimming pools, one of which is an Olympic plus a fitness center and a tennis court. If your budget is 160-200 Euros/night for a double room, you don’t need to consider other options. There is a supermarket and many delicious restaurants near the hotel. A true paradise!
Hotel San Giovanni
Despite 3-stars only, Hotel San Giovanni is one of the best rated by tourists. It is located in the heart of Giardini Naxos. The beach is literally 100 meters away. A bus to Taormina stops outside the hotel, and a round-trip ticket costs € 3. Cozy rooms and very friendly staff. A double room with breakfast in season costs about 120 Euros/night. Rooms offer views of the Ionian Sea or the garden. Recommend.

Hotel Villa Nefele
В отеле Villa Nefele is also a 3*** hotel but well located by the sea. Next to the hotel, there is a Deco minimarket, where you can buy necessary groceries, and a large Deco supermarket is a 5-minute drive away. There is paid parking near the hotel for about 10 Euros/day, but you can also find free parking on the white line. Nearby there are paid private beaches, 5 minutes walk on foot, and you are on a free-of-charge beach.
Hotel Tysandros is one of the highly rated and is located just 10 meters from the public free sand and pebble beach. Sandy beach 5-minutes walk.
Due to a reasonable price of 80-100 Euros/night, this option is trendy among travelers. I recommend you start booking accommodation for the summer months no later than March-April. There are clean rooms with stunning views from the windows. There is a bus stop outside the hotel for easy access to Catania Airport. In addition to traditional Italian pastries, you can eat scrambled eggs, cheese, muesli, and fruits for breakfast.
RG NAXOS Hotel
The RG NAXOS Hotel is located 2 kilometers from the center of Giardini Naxos. The hotel has excellent breakfasts, a 24-hour gym, two restaurants, tropical gardens, a Spa-center. You can sunbathe under the palm trees, by the pool, or walk to the beach. A room at the Hotel costs about 200 Euros/night during the season. The territory offers views of Mount Etna, which we recommend visiting in the format of an individual tour.
Palladio is a small family-run hotel Palladio right on the waterfront, with only 3-stars, but all compensated by friendly staff, views of the beach and the bay, and the ability to have breakfast and dinner on the terrace. In August, the minimum hotel reservation starts from 5 days. From April to October, the restaurant at the hotel serves traditional Sicilian food. An excellent budget option in the range of 100 Euros/night.
