Site difficult to navigate/ needs redesign

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.palazzodelgolfo.com

I have vacation rental properties in Sicily. The site has been up for more than a year. I like the design but the feedback has been that it's difficult to navigate and viewing the photos of the different apartments is difficult. 

I need to be able to share quick links with people of each apartment to view photos on Facebook and whatsapp. 

I also think that the navigation and home page can be more direct/straightforward. 

Are there page layouts/tweaks I can do to clean it up?

If a whole redesign is warranted what template should I use?

What template would you suggest I use?

Nice vacation properties you have @sullisnyc 😊

I don't think you need to change template. It would be nice to hear more in det what they meant with the feedback "difficult to navigate".

Regarding viewing the photos, I have a better/easier solution: Make all photos visible to that the visitor can scroll them instead of clicking around. If you think the page gets too long, you can split the gallery in to two columns and use the Lightbox option instead. This will make the viewing more pleasing 👍

For me personally, I would prefer to have the apartment photos the first thing I see when I click learn more on the home page. For example when I click Penthouse and Terrace, the banner image is fine, but under that I would put just the line of text The Perfect Couples Getaway in bold larger type, the slideshow immeadiately below those words and the description of the apartment below the slideshow. Let the images sell the place first, the old saying is sell the sizzle then the steak and the images have sizzle.
