“Best view in Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Exceptional hotel with arguably the best view in Italy. The bar terrace and restaurant have Mt Etna and the coast set out ahead of them. Wonderful food and attentive service merely add to the experience.

This hotel is def a 5 Star resort. The staff was amazing and made our trip even better. My husband and I traveled to Taormina on Business with His Company and were all staying at The Grand Hotel Timeo. Their continuous efforts to keep us all happy was outstanding. Would return to this hotel anytime. One of my favorites.

I am in my third day of a four day stay at the Grand Hotel in Taormina .
The staff are exceptional .The views are also breath taking beautiful .
My wife and I are staying in a junior suite which has all the modern facilities which is unexpected given the age of the Hotel .The breakfast is included and is to die for ,what ever you want ,European ,Asian ,Japanese , all is on offer and nothing is to much trouble .
From Day one everyone seems to know your name and is committed to ensuring you have a great visit .
I am off to the pool deck as I do not want to miss out on my daily routine of the staff their spoiling us .
By the way they have an sister Hotel on the water called Saint Andrea which is a little smaller and located in a quiet cove on the pebbly beach .Worth a visit but for mine The Grand Timeo has more to offer .
The town itself is a bit of a tourist trap ,which is what happens to the best places in the world ,but the Timeo is an Oassis set in Heaven .

Room Tip: Room 118 which is a junior suite has a great balcony 2 French doors and a view of the bay from 300 m...

We had a few mishaps unrelated to the hotel itself and the staff went out of their way to straighten things out for us. David at the front desk was great. The restaurant suggestions and relationships Stefano had were invaluable. There are several nice hotels in town, but having 6 acres of park like setting on the cliffs along with full access to the sister hotel on the beach is a difficult combo to beat. Similar look and feel as Amalfi Coast or Dubrovnik. Expensive, but well worth it.

Taormina is a must to visit if you are in Sicily. Breathtaking views, amazing restaurants, very friendly and helpful people. The views surpass those of Cannes and Monte Carlo.

A special thank you to Luigi Russo at the Hotel Timeo who was very gracious and pleasant when my husband and I went to have a apero on the terrasse. The view is nothing less than spectacular with a view of Mount Etna, the sea and the Greek theater.

We were supposed to stay one night but extended our stay another night.

The best service ever! From housekeeping to the dining room the attention was superb. A delightful hotel in a charming location. Definitely sold me on Orient Express hotels in future - of course that kind of service always comes at a price - but well worth it. Would go back again.

The Timeo has always been a beautiful place. Since orient express took it over some years go, it has always improved. Everything is now polished and beautifully kept and service is exceptional. Of course prices have gone up too but the excellence never comes cheap. Brilliant!
