“It deserves its 4 star rating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2012

We have just returned from a really lovely holiday. We stayed in this Hotel for 12 nights on a half board basis. As already said, the Hotel is kept to a very high standard. We had a superior room with a large balcony overlooking the swimming pool and sea. We had two sun loungers on the balcony. The towels and sheets were changed everyday and the bathroom, quite large with a very nice shower, was spotless. Hot water was very plentiful. Dinner was served by some very nice waiters who were very pleased to accommodate you with whatever you wanted. The food was excellent and cooked to perfection. The only complaint I have is that there was too much food, the starter being as big as the first course. The sea was quite powerful somedays but deliciously warm.

Room Tip: We had a superior room on second floor overlooking the beach

I stayed at Hellenia on 7th July 2012 for 6 nights. The hotel is lovely, the staff were also get helpful. But it's clear that the hotel is a shadow of its former glory. The interiors are lavish and very clean and tidy, but there are clear signs that the building is getting old.

Our room was perfectly comfortable (remember that European beds are always very firm - which is fine by me but might not be to everyone's cup of tea!!). But looking beyond the walls, the air conditioning was very old and noisy (and not really that cold to be honest). The bathroom was always clean and perfectly usable... but, again, looking old and dated. It really could do with being refurbished if I'm honest... especially if they are going to keep their 4star rating.

As already mentioned, the staff were brilliant! Always helpful and all spoke English a LOT better than I could speak Italian which I'm very grateful for.

Giardini Naxos is an interesting place. It's a little rough and ready in places but the restaurants outside the hotel were all nice (we made a point of trying a different one every night). There isn't a great else to do though in the area to be honest and we found ourselves heading out to other places like Taormina which is a truly fantastic place! So pretty and interesting...

In terms of things to see and do in the local area, Etna is a MUST! It was amazing... Alcantara Gorge is also fantastic... Taormina as already mentioned... It's also worth traveling up to Castlemola for the views!

Also just spending time on the beach outside the hotel is lovely. The sea was warm and crystal clear.

Room Tip: As nice as it would be to have a "sea view" room, this also means you'll hear the pian...

We stayed at the Hellenia Yachting Hotel the last week of June. The hotel is beautifully maintained and the service is excellent. The beach and sea were quiet and calm UNTIL the 28th of June when a local vendor screeched up to the beach with jet skis for hire. Hired to anyone without previous experience making swimming in the sea treacherous and the noise unbearable. Staff at the hotel said the service was unconnected to them and there was nothing that they could do but the unsavory characters running the service seemed to strut about the hotel grounds unchecked.

For my first visit to Sicily, we stayed here 8 nights. I was so pleased with the facilities: beautiful terrace and nighttime piano bar, lovely pool and a few steps down to their own private beach> the interior is elegant, there are lounges and the dining room is well appointed both for the breakfast buffet (a wonderful selection of traditional Italian breakfast food...and bagels and cereals...,and also for dinner. Food was very good. Bedroom was large and bathroom was all marble. I'd come again both for the hotel and the great location.

Just back from a week at the Hellenia Yachting Hotel in Sicily. This is my second visit and I had a fantastic week again there. The hotel is truly lovely with such a nice atmosphere. Staff were fantastic especially in the restaurant and the bar staff. The Sicilian night each Friday was the highlight of the week. I love Sicily and will return again.

Room Tip: Please make sure you ask for an upgrade to a Superior Room when booking as I believe if you don'...

We stayed from 22nd to 29th May and cannot rate this hotel highly enough.

The room was very comfortable (take a travel kettle & couple of mugs as with most European hotels!) and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Everyone from the maid to the manager was happy to help and always with a 'buongiorno and a smile'.

We were upgraded at no cost to a balcony room and to be fair I would have been disappointed given what we paid if we'd been in simply a "window" room. At the end of our stay we were worried about having to hang around for 6 hours to wait for our taxi to the airport. We didn't need to worry - the manager had already arranged for us to have use of a room for those hours as he knew when our connection was.

The pool was lovely (& cold!); the breakfasts were diverse and filling; the communal areas and room were very clean and the restaurants across the road were fantastic (especially Sikelia where we ate frequently and always received a warm Sicilian welcome from the family).

Perfect.

Room Tip: Try not to be on the ground floor and rooms overlooking the pool may give you more than you bargaine...
