... while the girls ran around like madmen, going down slid after slide, ride after ride -Paolo went with on the slides and I on the more scary rides, but the professionalism of all the lifeguards and staff allowed us to relax a little and let the girls explore on their own - it was hard to let go, though!
When we arrived, all the young kids were running around in jellies or socks and we rolled our eyes at their Italian softness, but they'd ...

Later that evening, after the requisite siesta, we set off to Linguaglossa to a few places that Señora recommended: Bar Le Palme for granite and l'Alhambra pasticceria for a local pastry delicacy made of pistachio, almonds or hazelnut. While we were walking around, I was struck again by the groups of ...
... around, especially Mt Etna. We went for lunch at Sine Tempore, which I found a little snooty and definitely didn't offer the the best pasta: Lia had veal a la limone, Nuka the Sine Tempore which had wild mushrooms, Paolo had a pasta that included fresh tomatoes and I had the Norma.
Using our our newfound energy, we made it back to our car and set off for Bronte, home of the pistachio. The GPS put our time of arrival at 3.30pm, perfectly timed to ...
... It is a fantastic hotel, quiet and the room is very spacious. However we will only be here one night as our tour of Sicily commences in the morning. We went walking around Catania and though it is very neglected you can see the old beautiful city it use to be. We assume there is a lack of money being spent on the city which is a shame. Or maybe the mafia are controlling everything!!! The first corner we turned we found some old ruins that use ...
When I was making my summer plans over the spring months, I of course wanted to include some relaxing beach time. I made plans to go with a friend to Mykonos in early July and figured that would suffice (in addition to weekly trips to Santa Severa beach outside Rome). Something that I was also planned for the summer was to visit in old teaching buddy who now lives in Zurich. Was going to do that a few days after Madrid.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Caesar Palace Giardini Naxos
Un hotel sin fin
El hotel es precioso y las comodidades que hay excelentes. No hay tiempo para el aburriemiento. Las habitaciones son muy confortables y completas. Los restaurantes están muy bien, en resumen un 10 para el hotel.
Had high expectations,however was very disappointed!
The Hotel Caeser Palace was beautiful with a massive swimming pool (Although it wasnt heated)
The Hotel rooms were very roomy and comfortable.The buffet style restaurant was not ideal if you was wanting a nice quiet meal and the food was very disappointing!
The resort itself was very nice and it only takes 20 minutes to walk into Giarini Naxos.
Would highly recommend the Godfather Trail.
I personally wouldnt recommend this holiday for a young couple but i do think its a beautiful Island.
Very nice hotel, interesting breakfast
We spent one week in this hotel and I was really happy that I've red all the reviews on the net about the available hotels at our travel agency before I chose the Ceasar Palace. It is a really nice hotel with very kind staff - they not the best in english, but nor do I -, beautiful pool area, comfortable room with mostly large balcony, free tea and instant coffee in the room (you can prepaire it for yourself). The only thing is to think about is that you have to walk about 20 minutes to reach the beach in Giardini Naxos, because the hotel is quite far from the city-centre. In almost every hour goes a private hotel-bus to the centre, which is free for all the hotel guests. There is also a local bus which comes every half an hour, so it is also a possibility to get to the city.
There is one thing at the hotel which is not the best: the catering. For breakfast you won't get a good coffee, it tastes a little like coffee, but I wasn't shoure. You can get it from an automat, which has about 10 buttons, but non of them gives you that coffee or milk or water what is written on it. If you push for example "weak coffee" somethimes you get just milk, or a terrible espresso-like thing, or something else you didn't expected. Once I got some coffee on the tea-bag in my mug instead of hot water... The mugs are sometimes too small for the amount given by the automat. In brief the breakfast-drinks are not the best but in food you will always find something you like. Try the starters at dinner which are really tasty and there are many of them.
Great Hotel, disappointing food!
Beautiful hotel, very friendly staff, airconditioning such a relief, and the rooms were spacious and spotless. The pool area was super, with plenty of sunbeds and complimentary poolside towels! Activities were organised for everybody who wished to take part and the organising team were brilliant. On the downside, the music at the pool could be quite loud and the food became a bit monotonous with very little variation from day to day. My two teenagers found it hard to find something to like and they are quite adventurous regarding their food.
All in all, a great hotel but if I had a choice, I would stay in Taormina next time, as the resort of Giardini Naxos did not have any great appeal.
Well worth it's 4* !!!
Having endured a 14 hour flight delay from dublin to sicily, my wife and I were praying that our hotel would live up to its 4* reputation. It did!!
The pool is relatively large and is kept spotless. There are any amount of sunbeds. Throughout the day there were various activities ie. aqua aerobics, water polo etc.
The hotel and the facilities/activities which it offers are suitable for all ages including families with children.
The hotel is situated approx 1 mile from the beach with a free minibus to taxi hotel guests to and from it. The minibus leaves every 45mins from the hotel doors and drops you off at the prominade
The ensuite rooms are spacious and included air conditioning which was great at night. The A/C stayed on 24/7 and was left to our discretion as to how high or low we wanted the temprature.
Our holiday package was half board. Breakfast was served from 07.15 to 10.30. Lunch (optional) 12.45 to 14.00 and dinner 19.15 to 21.30. The food was amazing!!! There was so much variety at each sitting, it was almost possible to have seven completely different meals on each of the seven nights we stayed.
Although we found the resort of giardini naxos relatively quiet on our first night, it did liven up over the weekend (fri & sat night). bottles of beer were approx 2.50 euro while a pizza or pasta dish would set you back approx 6.00 euro!!
Although my wife and I would highly recommend the resort of Naxos to base your holiday, and in particular hotel caesar palace it would not be complete without taking a few trips to the resort of taormina.The village is built into the side of a mountain with amazing views of the italian and sicilian coast lines. The small streets and ally ways are lined with bars restaurants boutiques and flea market stalls. If you enjoyed Venice, well this is it on the side of a mountain with no gondola's. Taormina is more expensive than Naxos eg, a bottle of beer approx 5.00 euro and a pizza or pasta dish approx 8.50 euro! On the last night of our seven night stay we ate out in a restaurant called 'La cisterna del moro' which I highly recommend with its cliff edge tables and ocean view. Our two starters, two pizza, two espresso, 1litre of water and 1litre of wine came to 43.00euro!!!
If you do go to taormina check out a few bars. Bar Morgana, Bar O'Seven, and Bar Na Mammath (piazza duomo)
Our holiday was amazing and the hotel caesar palace was fantastic. A great base from which to enjoy Giardini Naxos and its neighbouring resort of Taormina.
we have just returned from two weeks at the caesar palace in guardini naxos, Sicily,more than satisfied with hotel, pool huge, lots of sunbeds, services excellent, restaurant food very good lots of meditaraneean vegetables and plenty of it; restaurant very busy on times, buffet. good to mix with all nationalities. beach also a nice change with a free shuttle bus from hotel. would definately go back again
I have just returned from a 2 week stay in Giardini Naxos where I stayed at the Ceasar Palace Hotel. My initial reaction was one of disappointment because the hotel is quite a distance from the Sea. However, this soon changed when I saw the large room, with pleanty of storage space, a large bathroom, fluffy towels and the complementary sparkling wine and fruit.
The hotel is spotlessly clean, the staff are very friendly and they encouraged me to use the few Italian phrases I know. The pool area is large and you can always get a lounger and towels to put on it. There is a kids club and activities for the children in the evening which means that adults are rarely disturbed by children and parents have a chance to relax.
The hotel is very popular with Italians which I thought was brillant as I do not want to go abroad and have a hotel cater to my British diet etc. Prices in the hotel are reasonable and the bus to the beach was very regular. We enjoyed the walk to Giardini in the evening as it provided the opportunity to walk down the supberb food we had for dinner. On the 15th they put on a buffet for the feast of the Assumption and I have never seen so much food in my life. A great deal of care was taken over the presentation and the range of seafood and meats was brillant.
If we return to Sicily we would definitely stay at this hotel again.
Hail Caesar Palace!
Just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks stay at this hotel. The hotel is ideal for couples and families. It is spotlessly clean with a superb pool. Entertainment was provided nightly by the pool in the form of a pianist/singer or traditional Sicilian folk music.
The staff are friendly and the food is outstanding with lots of choice. Whilst the hotel was busy (mainly with Italian/Sicilian guests - approx. 80%) there was lots of room poolside, during the day and in the restaurant.
There is real attention to detail and lots of the little things that made the stay most enjoyable i.e. complimentary bottle of champagne, bowl of fresh fruit etc. in the room upon arrival, complimentary tea & biscuits between 4-5pm
Regular shuttle buses to and from the private beach during the day, courtesy of the hotel. The beach area is splendid, with again, lots of room and guaranteed sunbeds. The sea was clear, clean and warm. Also regular shuttle buses to and from Giardidni Naxos at night. There is also a public bus stop immediately outside the hotel which goes to and from Taormina (tickets can be bought from hotel reception, Euro 2.60 return)
The hotel is situated a good 30 minutes walk from Giardini, not bad if you don't mind a walk after dinner but it's not the best of routes as the road can be quite busy and is not the best for pedestrians in parts. The hotel is situated next door to a Shoe Supermarket (Tutto Scarpe) which sells all manner of classy Italian shoes and leather bags etc. at knock down prices.
There is a fantastic view of Mount Etna from the hotel.
I thought this hotel was great. The buffet was outstanding; some of the best food I ate the entire time I spent in Sicily! They had many nice amenities, with a nice piano bar we used for dancing after dinner. This hotel is highly recommended.
Clean, pity about the buffet
We booked our holiday at the last minute and so were put on a reserve list of hotels for Taormina, Giardini Naxos and Lettojanni and got the Caesar Palace in Giardini Naxos. All three villages are within a 10 mile stretch with Taormina in the hills.While the hotel is spotlessly clean, our expectations of a 4star hotel were definitely not met here. The Italian's have a different rating system to the rest of the world, and this was borne out by visiting other 3 and 4 stars hotels nearby (The Helliena Yachting looked lovely but we didn't stay there).On the positive side the pool was great, new, large, clean with plenty of loungers, however, the water was freezing. It's not heated, not to sound picky but when the Mediterranean is warmer than your hotel pool, that means it's very cold.This hotel offers half board, suggestion; try to get bed and breakfast only, even bed only if possible. Our biggest disappointment was the food; breakfast was self service, cereal, bacon, scrambled egg, etc. which got very repetitive. To get the real Sicilian experience go into Naxos and get a cappuccino and croissant - definitely better... Dinner was buffet style every evening with little variety. The food itself is good but not very imaginative and you will get tired of the same after two nights. You can change your dinner for lunch if you tell them the day before. Advise is to eat out in Taormina and Giardini Naxos, they have great seafood which you should try. There are some good restaurants but beware of one in Taormina where the maitre'd suggests that he's give you a sample of the antipastos - bad idea unless you don't mind parting with E200 for food you didn't order!! Otherwise you can eat out for two for less than Euro30 with wine.Which brings me to an important point. If you are planning on staying in Taormina, try to get a hotel there, otherwise you will be like practically every guest in our hotel waiting for the bus to Taormina (goes from outside the hotel E1.60 one way per person at time of writing), but it is very very unreliable. The Caesar Palace is probably the furthest hotel away from Giardini Naxos beach though there is a free shuttle bus that brings you to the beach but again it's not very regular. Beach is lovely, clean and excellent ice cream parlour just at the entrance.In essence if you want to stay around that area book yourself a hotel in Taormina, it's prettier, better restaurants, shops etc. The Caesar Palace seems to cater for large bus tours who just stop over one night, fine if that's your thing, not if you want a relaxing break in Sicily, exploring the culture, food and wine.
