We spent in the hotel a week end in September and the experience was very good. The owners were always kind and accessible. The hotel is in a great position and is a ideal "base" to visit the eastern coast of sicily; the sea is just 5 steps away from the entrance!

My partner and me stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. At the very beginning, we had booked Hotel Solemar, which is very close, but after all, we are very pleased with the result!! Icelandic vulcano became active right before our arrival, so we were transfered to Kennedy. Since the very beginning they were extremely helpful. Rooms were not only...

My entire family went to Sicily in late May and we stayed 3 nights at Hotel Kennedy. In all our hotels (and by that time we had been to 5 other hotels in other cities in our Italy trip), this was by far the worst of the lot. When we made the booking, it was with the understanding that there...

The Kennedy is located in a small city some 10 kilometres from Taormina. The hotel is built in the 70ties and the room’s furniture and equipment is equally old. That being said it is clean and tidy and everything works. Located right on the waterfront the hotel hosts a beautiful view of the Mediterranean sea. There is no beach in...

Our stay at the Hotel Kennedy was a wonderful experience. The hotel was clean, had beautiful views and our every request was granted and more. All the people on staff were helpful, courteous and easy to speak to. The Kennedy also has two cafes in the immediate vacinity that provided the same excellent service and hospitality.

This was our second stay at the hotel Kennedy in three years. In addition to having the cleanest rooms with great views it also has the most friendly, helpful staff. On our way to Messina we were talking in the lobby with the owner when someone mentioned that he had to wait several minutes in line at the autostrada exit...

We returned about a week ago from spending 6 wonderful nights at the Hotel Kennedy in Sant'Alessio. The front desk staff was welcoming and continued to be very accommodating and friendly throughout our stay. The maids did a great job of cleaning our room every day. There was a small refrigerator in our room, as well. Our balcony view of...

Although, the hotel has almost completely recovered from being flooded by seawater in February, there are still things to improve on. The rooms are reasonable big, and the ones facing the ocean have spectacular ocean views. However, the decor is old and the seawater has left steal appliances and balcony railings partly covered in rust. Also, the storm that caused...
