We just returned from a 10 day trip to Sicily spending May 6th thru May 12, 2013 at the Timeo.
I agree completely with my fellow travelers' recent Trip Advisor reviews of the Timeo. Yes, it is "off the charts" in terms of location, service, quality of food, etc. You name it -- it was fantastic. We have been fortunate to stay in many 5 star hotels around the world and Timeo ranks up there for us at the top or as one writer stated, rather -- it should be at the "7 star" level. Signor Funardi, the GM and his team ensure that each guest have an extraordinary experience at their property. Of course, it is a 5 star hotel -- so if one is on a budget, respectfully, you will probably be more comfortable at another property but do stop by to admire the view at a minimum. BTW, we also thought the chef was one of the best in Taormina.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set in the centre of Taormina, in beautiful gardens, the hotel enjoys unrivalled views of the coastline and Mount Etna. Adjacent to the Greek Theatre, it is surrounded by stylish boutiques, cafes and cultural attractions, and has been welcoming guests, including famous artists and writers, since 1873. Its renowned Literary Terrace is an elegant place to relax and enjoy the vistas. Most guest rooms, decorated with Sicilian baroque flourishes, enjoy sea views from their expansive balconies or terraces. ... more less
