Quirly Hotel, Great Food and Service
Posted May 1, 2015 on Hotels
The hotel is ideally located at the far end of the Giardini Naxos Beachfront. About 15 minutes walk from the Station. The Bus Stop for buses to Taormina, and from Catania Airport is opposite the hotel. There are plenty of Restaurants and Bars close-by along the seafront, within 5-15 minutes walk. Our room had a small balcony which looked directly out to sea.
The Hotel staff were all very helpful, both on Reception, and in the Dining Room.
Breakfasts were the usual buffet style with savoury and cake choices changed frequently. Scrambled Eggs were available to order. The Breakfast room on the 3rd floor is used as a Dining Room for Guests in the evening, and the menu is changed daily (Produce is bought fresh each day depending upon the menu), we only ate in the Hotel once but it was a delicious meal and they offer dishes that the local restaurants don't (fresh tomato soup/fresh tuna in pistachio breadcrumbs), with prices comparable to other Restaurants along the seafront.
The only slight issue was tha amount of pasing traffic, which seemed endless at times, though the other seafront hotels would have a similar problem.
Whilst we were there, there was frantic activity getting the resort ready for the summer season, which appears to start the last weekend in April, so if you go earlier than that, some of the Bars and Restaurants are closed, though there is still plenty of choice available.
Would we stay again - yes, without a doubt.
