Our Sun holiday to Giardini Naxos is in one of the most picturesque resorts of the eastern coast of Sicily. Our 4★ beachfront hotel is the perfect base to sample the sights and sounds of this stunning Italian island with mix of relaxation.
We are based in the lively seaside resort of Giardini Naxos, at the foot of Taormina. The resort has grown from a quiet fishing village into a busy town, mostly due to its prime location overlooking the mighty Mount Etna. The main activity revolves around the relaxing seafront with several lidos providing easy access to the beach. The harbour is the place to go for cafes and a number of seafood restaurants.
Our hotel is ideally located by the pebbly beach. Here we can spend our days relaxing on one of the hired sun loungers and sip a refreshing drink. When we are feeling peckish there are a number of restaurants to satisfy our hunger. Alternatively we can spend our days by one of the swimming pools that the hotel has to offer, one of which is Olympic sized, the choice is truly ours.
Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean, and it offers more than just the beaches and hotel pools. A trip here would not be complete without visiting the beautiful Mount Etna. Going up is a spectacular journey as the mountain’s landscape constantly changes. Another must see is Taormina which lies on a terrace of Monte Tauro in a fabulous position overlooking the sea, right opposite Mount Etna. A visit to the famous Greek Theatre which dates back to the 3rd Century BC is a must; the views of Etna are spectacular so don’t forget your camera!
Located in Giardini Naxos on the east coast of Sicily, the Naxos Beach Resort is an impressive complex that offers an array of facilities that will keep guests thoroughly entertained. Situated directly on the beachfront, this expansive resort is set in large tropical gardens and guest rooms are scattered amongst the olive groves, shady palms and colourful flowers. Spectacular views of Mount Etna, just an hour’s drive away, can be enjoyed from the resort, and the bustling town of Taormina is located just six kilometres away
Facilities at our hotel include 4 restaurants, 4 bars (one pool bar), swimming pool, fitness centre, private beach and Free Wifi in public area.
We are based in the Villa section of the hotel. The rooms are tastefully decorated and include air-conditioning, satellite TV, hairdryer, safe, mini fridge and private balcony or terrace.
Hotel card system
Please note this hotel uses a in-house payment card system. Clients will be given a cash card at check in, and can be topped up with money. The card is used to purchase extras at the hotel. Any monies left on the card at departure will be refunded back.
Transfer time from Catania airport to our hotel is approximately 45 minutes.
You may wish to take an optional excursion during the course of your stay. Full details will be given at the Information Meeting. All tours can be paid for in Euros. Your Tour Leader will help arrange these for you but may not necessarily accompany you.
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below.
Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of €15.00 per week. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate add on.
Casual, cotton, lightweight daytime wear is the order of the day. Comfortable shoes are a must for sightseeing. Smart casual clothes will be ideal for the evening, with the emphasis throughout being informal but with no shorts or vests in the restaurants in the evenings.
Please note that it is recommended for the Etna excursion that you wear closed shoes, long trousers and have a waterproof jacket.
Please note that our hotel is spread out and there can be a lot of walking required between the rooms, restaurants, bars and pool.

I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
Had the best time with Solos! Discovered beautiful destinations and met some lifelong friends.
