It was not hard to find the hotel, since everybody let you know, that you have to cross some water before arriving to the hotel. We had an appartment, which was lovela. there is also nice restaurant at the site. The staff there is very, very friendly and helpful. In fact there is rail nearby, but you are mostly out of room , so you dont hear it. The only bad thing is, that it is really far from taormina town ( the nearby giardini naxos is boring).

Room Tip: appartments are new, full equiped.

We should have listened to the negative reviews when booking this hotel, we were so unhappy with this residence (It cannot be classed as a hotel or a bed and breakfast) that we left after one night, and were charged for two. When we arrived at the hotel, we had to drive across stream to access the parking and found the building was situated in a back alley, littered with rubbish and desolate looking buildings.
We stayed positive, parked our car in the near impossible parking and entered the 'hotel'. There wasn't a reception but, the caretaker of the building, who lives on the premises, came out to meet us after we had waited a while and tried knocking on some doors. The caretaker was very friendly , and showed us to our room, which was on the roof. The room appeared to be clean but, smelt so strongly of the chemicals you use in portable toilets. We asked if we could change our room but , the lights didn't work in the only other room we were offered. I noticed in the other room there were toiletries made available , however there was nothing given in our room.
The bed was extremely uncomfortable , and at 11.30pm they started building works on the train track situated outside the window of the room. The noise was so unbearable, that we couldn't sleep a wink.
On the internet the 'hotel ' advertised that fact that they had a restaurant, and a private beach and was listed under bed and breakfast. The restaurant was closed and looked like it hadn't been open for a long time, plants were dead and the signage was falling down. Also the beach was closed. When we pointed out that, what was on offer is not what they are advertising, the caretaker said that the restaurant is not connected to the residence. After a sleepless night and hungry from a lack of breakfast, we decided to leave and were offered an apparently superior room which had suddenly become available. We couldn't face another sleepless night and left but, were charged for two nights.

Accomodating, honest, helpful & very courteous staff at Il Cantone! Superlative cleanliness, good value for room quality (bed & breakfast) & bathroom sundries, lovely private strip of beach, outstanding dining al fresco, good food at reasonable prices. The pictures are representative. Very nice family resort.
Originally reserved for a party of 5 adults, however, we arrived as a couple due to unforeseen circumstances. The owner graciously accepted to change our accomodations as needed without penalty! Maurizio, theconcierge, was a dear & attentive to our needs such as parking & internet.
Giardini Naxos, as stated, is on the outskirts of Taormina and the location of Il Cantone is across a stream, however, help with parking is readily available and public transportation to Taormina is very good. The hotel is aesthetically more pleasing than most hotels on the beach strip. The top floor has views. Plenty of restaurants, bars, & a pleasant walk along the public beach.

Room Tip: great bakery around the corner

We booked a 2 person apartment for 1 week but, we left after 1 night! This property is marketed as ''on the beach''. It's not. The restaurant sits above the beach with the apartment block behind it. The interior was newly decorated and matched the pictures on Expedia. The outside however was appalling. The building looked like it was about to fall down and the entrance, down the side of the building; was pitch black when we returned after dinner. Our balcony looked onto the back of the other apartments and the train, which ran all night; was directly behind the bedroom and was extremely noisy. The road to this property is not tarmac, but rocks and dust and the car park + beach were both under contruction.
