The room was clean. Diner was poor, and tasteless, You could take only one dessert, And the waiter checked if you said you take one for your spouse. I suggest dining somewhere else. The view from the balcony at the 5th floor is awesome. Etna is in full view.

The staff were terribly rude and unhelpful. The food was disgusting. We were served hot dogs for dinner, and what was left of them were served at breakfast cut up into our salad. We were told not to change our towels. Also the staff said to one of our group, "I do not like Jews, or Israelis". when asked his... More

Don't expect to be lavished by their 4* reward. This does not reflect our 4* quality we have in England. However it's a step back in time and we loved it, decor is from the 70s. The room we stayed in was 403a which was very reasonable in size and had a lovely view of the bay. Please note that... More

It feels, that you returned 50 years back in time. But than, it is quite reasonable place to stay. Large rooms but without planning. Huge double bed, but the shower was so small, that hardly could fit for an average man (area of 60X60 cm.), while beside the shower was a large potential area for enlargement. In the Lobby, still...

The hotel is absolutely terrible. The furniture is outdated, the rooms look like a set out of a 70's show, the service at the reception is terrible and barely anyone speaks English. The room has a balcony overlooking the beach due to the hotel facing the sea, and on the first night we stayed and the weather was really horrible.... More

This hotel is all about taking your money and giving you terrible service in return. We signed in in the afternoon, asking for recommendations for excursions. They took 50 euros from us, just to tell us later that it has been delayed, to a time we can not attend. They charged us for 2 euros on an WiFi service that... More

Hotel Sporting Baia, Giardini Naxos, is an average hotel. In my opinion it is certainly not 4* by Irish standards. The bedroom was very clean but a bit cramped and unremarkable. The dining room was airy and bright. Breakfast was poorish - no fresh fruit; hit and miss on the availability of items such as natural yogurt, muesli and the... More

You will remain disappointed for the structure, rooms, and hall. It was beautiful when they build up, but time is past and need a real remake. Breakfast is on the average, position is really great just need to pass trought the street and you are arrived to the beach
