Incredibly lovely small hotel: from museum / art gallery style decorated interior (with an open-air terrace on the roof!) to unconventional approach to customer service. Perfect location to explore eastern part of Sicily: close to must - see Taormina (incl.Isola Bella and Mazzaro beaches), not too far away (up to 1hour drive) from Syracusa, Ragusa, Noto and other attractions (all advises you'll be given at the hotel's reception). The only advice to the owners is to replace bathroom's curtains with a normal shower cabin into a shower space :).
Advice for the low-season travellers: do not spend money (10 EUR / night) for parking reservation - there's not too hard to find car parking space just on the street (blue lines are for public)

Everybody working at this hotel without exception did whatever they could to make us happy. Wonderful experience - would happily give more than 5 points for service! The room was always clean, but a little run down and could need some refurbishing. The location is conveniently close to the beach, but unfortunately the sea view includes the gas station right in front of the building. Liked best: friendly staff. Liked least: nothing really; our stay in Sicily was terrible otherwise, and Palladio was our haven.

Stayed here for four nights and everything was just fantastic. Lovely four bedded room with fab views across the bay of Naxos. Staff were also lovely as was the breakfast every morning. Will definitely return....

A fantastic smaller hotel with amazing views across the sea and bay of Naxos. I actually had a few tears in my eyes when we were shown to our room and saw the views. The room was a superior family one in an italian blue and white style. Everything was exceptionally clean and tidy and the beds were really comfortable with crisp white linen. Our bathroom was fantastic with lots of stylish fittings and accessories in it, and again was exceptionally clean. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful when we needed any information, Breakfast was just perfect with a large choice of carefully selected food and drinks and being able to sit on the sun terrace on the top floor, overlooking the sea & beach and watching the world go by was an added extra. My children, who are aged 11 and 13 thought it was a perfectly located hotel and loved hopping on the bus to visit places close by i.e. Taormina. I chose it especially because of being a smaller, italian style hotel. We all wished we had stayed longer so we will definately be booking this hotel again.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

This little hotel is perfectly situated in front of the beach, in the centre of Giardini Naxos.
It is easy to reach, not as overcrowded as Taormina can be.
The highlight of the hotel was its amazing food, made of locally produced ingredients. Menu changes every day. On the first day of arrival they serve a degustation menu, so make sure you're hungry! It's great value for money as well, so we were happy to upgrade to half board.
The hotel is tastefully decorated, it has a personal touch, lovely paintings on the wall and some antique furniture.
Make sure you take a sea view room. They all have little balconies with tables and chairs where you can relax and look at the ocean for hours.
The owners are very friendly, and the staff very helpful.
I hope we will have a chance to come back to this hotel soon.

We have just returned from a wonderful week staying at the Palladio.The rooms were superb with views of the sea and out to the town. The staff were incredibly helpful and really made us welcome. Very impressed with the vibe of the hotel - interesting art works on display throughout the building and a strong ethical commitment to the food, wine etc. This was our first time in Sicily, but we will be returning as soon as we can.

The things I really liked about this hotel were its proximity to the beach, the beautiful ocean views from the breakfast room and terrace, the colourful decor and interesting antique furniture, the closeness of bus stops to Taormina and Catania, the excellent selection of local and hand baked food on offer for breakfast and the delicious food provided for the evening menu. We only ate at the hotel once but enjoyed the food and when we ordered from the daily menu in the morning we cheekily asked if there was any chance of desert (not on the menu) and that evening we were presented with portions of tiramisu especially made for us.
Our stay was almost perfect aside from the small downside of the noisy road (especially in the back rooms) and the fact I was woken early some mornings by the clattering coming from breakfast being prepared in the kitchen.
Our stay was in April and Giardini Naxos was a little lacking in atmosphere for the tourist at this time of year but the ride up to Taormina was quick and easy and this town had much to offer.
Overall we had a very good stay, the staff were very friendly and welcoming and I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a cheaper alternative to nearby Taormina.
