On the way to a wedding, we decided to see Taormina and spent one night at Giardini Naxos which seemed a lot cheaper than Taormina in general. I picked Palladio because of the reviews and position, smack on the sea. Definitely I was happy about the choice.
If you need a large hotel, with an easy access, large elevator and a parking lot in front, then this may not be your top choice, let's put it that way. But if you like smaller hotels where people are really committed to serve you, then do not hesitate.
At Palladio we were attended as if we truly were royal guests, by each and every one of the staff members. Whatever we asked, they really went out of their way to help us. That was really outstanding.
The room we had was in the back (booked too late, my fault) and the bathroom needed a bit of renovation. But price was decent, room quiet, very clean, with a/c, fridge, wi fi. But I saw other rooms and they looked really good.
The hotel in general is really cute, a lot of paintings, colored tiles, decorated with personality (which often is absent in many sicilian hotels that do lack charm).
The fourth floor terrace is just amazing. We dined (well) there and had a spectacular breakfast with homemade desserts, fresh orange juice, local marmelades and desserts and we were also offered eggs and other dishes. All this overlooking the sea.
They pride themselves for fresh local food, respect of the environment. Admirable.
Of course I will return, and next time I'll get a room with view, you bet.
