A glorious place to be in June when the high season hasn't started and there is plenty of room everywhere in the hotel and the cafes and restaurants. We were upgraded to a beautiful room with a huge terrace overlooking the sea and the view was just wonderful.
The senior staff are delightful, honestly doing their best to give you a wonderful stay, but some of the junior staff are a little sullen, particularly in the restaurant where there seemed to a war of attrition going on. One night guests were complaining while waiters were running around trying to find the right guest for the right meal yet our courses were served up so quickly we hardly had time to breathe and didn't get our wine till we had nearly finished our main course! The food was ok but nothing special. Breakfast was certainly hit and miss. There just weren't enough staff to take the orders and when we did order something it sometimes didnt come at all. On our last morning around 9 am the buffet looked very depleted- no one was taking the trouble to top things up or replace things or tidy up. On our final night the restaurant was opened by the pool in the evening for the first time and that was really lovely. We had fabulous grilled fish as we watched the sunset and the staff were great even if the chefs by the pizza oven looked fed up!
We had a wonderful boat trip around the island while we were there that the hotel organised and also visited Lipari which was well worth a visit. We would certainly go back to the Therasia for the rooms, the views, the pool and the peace and tranquility and certainly in June. Finally an especial big thank you to Nancy and Valentina who are two lovely staff members.
