I'm writing a late review as I stayed at Porta del Vento at the end of December 2012. Instead of being just being a room with a bathroom tacked on it this is a really homely bed and breakfast, ideally situated, with lovely hosts.
I appreciated their kindness, they're truly looking after their guests.
The B&B is owned and run by Elisa and Dario and their family.
It is nestled on a very quiet back street, a very short walk to the sea. It offers clean furnished rooms and a cosy hall / living room (a scrumptious breakfast is served there every morning).
I was given plenty of information about the touristic sites of the area ( Giardini, Taormina, Etna, etc.). There's a lot of talk about that with the hosts :)
I wholeheartedly recommend this place and I look forward to coming back to Giardini Naxos!
