My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Timeo to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. From the moment we stepped on this property we were treated like royalty!! The staff greeted us by name every time they saw us, it is little touches like this that make the difference! The staff was knew it was a special occasion and made sure to make it even more special, we always had a wonderful seat for breakfast and dinner, Prosecco and fruit in our room, and the pool manager treated us to champagne by the pool and always stopped by to ask we needed anything. I wish I could remember his name because he was so friendly and kind!!
Our mini suite was GORGEOUS with a view that was spectacular. We could see the bay and Mount Etna. Housekeeping kept our room spotless and they were so kind and made sure to come and go when we were not in our room. If we were there they asked if they could come in, but if we were getting ready to leave they would wait and come back later.
Front desk staff couldn't have been nicer, giving us great recommendations to go to places to eat or sight see. What ever we needed they made sure we had it.
Restaurant staff was fabulous!!! We had a dinner there after our vow renewal and they made it the most romantic dinner!! Whatever we wanted we had and the food was wonderful.
The day after our vow renewal they made us cappuccinos with hearts in them.
If we wanted breakfast in our room it was delivered and wonderful. There is a great deal of variety and we loved every bite!!!
A very special thank you to Mariangela, the banquet coordinator. She was in contact with me before our arrival to arrange our vow renewal. It was just my husband and I but we wanted it to be special and romantic. Mariangela was amazing and it was a ceremony we will never forget. She attended to every little detail from the flowers, candles, location, to the cake and Prosecco after the ceremony. It was everything we dreamed it would be. The same day we had our ceremony there was a big wedding with 160 guests, but Mariangela made sure we had her undivided attention as well. My husband, a military man, got choked up by the beauty of the ceremony!!
We also visited the sister property, Villa St. Andrea, and it is gorgeous as well. The beach is like something out of a dream, and the staff is just as attentive.
Do not miss the Villa's boat ride, it is fantastic.
If you are looking for a gorgeous setting and undivided attention the Grand Hotel Timeo is your place!!
I know I am forgetting something, but there is just not enough words to describe how wonderful this hotel is. It was a dream vacation and we will definitely be back!!!
