My husband and I vacationed at Therasia for our honeymoon. It was AMAZING! The Aeolian Islands are like the Hawaii of Italy. Absolutely gorgeous! We were greeted at the Vulcano port by the hotel shuttle and a very wam, lovely woman. Don't be put off by the smells of sulphur- you can't smell them at the resort. We were a little nervous, as Vulcano seems very desolate but as soon as we arrived at the resort we knew we were in good hands. Nancy, the customer relations specialist, was amazing. She showed us around and made us feel so welcome, checking in on us throughout our stay. We had a beautiful room overlooking the ocean. The rooms are huge, very rare in Italy. They are nicely appointed and comfortable. The swimming pool is absoltuely breathtaking and because the hotel is so small, it never seemed to be busy or crowded. We spend luxurious days lounging pool side and enjoying the breathtaking views. The food at Therasia is delicious! We ate delicious pizzas and bruschetta for lunch and had elaborate Sicilian dinners. The portions are BIG and the pricecs are reasonable. Every meal we ate there was interesting, and delicious! The tasting menu at the fancy restaurant was a true experience and Salvio, the head catering manager, is wonderful and so accommodating. The staff at Therasia was truly lovely. Everyone was friendly and would greet you by name when they saw you. The resort was clean, and well maintained with grorgeous grounds. We used the spa, and each had 2 massages. The spa is co-ed, huge, very relaxing, very nice and reasonable. We loved every minute of our time at Therasia. The staff, food, service, accommodations, and prices, were all EXCELLENT. We were thrilled when we received our bill and it was MUCH lower than we had anticipated.
Just beware- boats going TO and FROM Vulcano leave about 5 minutes EARLY! We missed our boat off the island but the hotel took care of it, found us a new route to our next desitnation, paid for the travel cost difference and helped us out along the way.
I HIGHLY recommend this resort. 5 star all the way. The sunsets are truly breathtaking!!!!!! The food is delicious, with a wide selection and accommodating staff. The room was beautiful and comfortable. They made our honeymoon so special and wonderful.
