We did not stay at this hotel, but visited twice for dinner and drinks on that wonderful terrace. We were recommended to this hotel as my wife wanted to visit a hair salon. We were greeted at reception and escorted to the spa, where the hair salon is through the most beautiful gardens. Although we were not staying as guests,... More

If the breathtaking view doesn't do it for you, the fabulous pool area and service will. Nestled in the Centre of Taormina it is the perfect oasis to escape the madness of the crowds.

Overcrowded Taormina, full of noisy and rude tourists. At least you can find some relaxing calm in Timeo. Perfect position. Wonderful view. Superb service. Nice and kind staff (multi language). Terrific restaurant. It has been a really nice discover.

A week here was almost perfect.

But the real reason the hotel is so special is the quality of the staff,... More

Although the trip - with BA via Gatwick - was the usual charmless (apart from BA checkin and flight attendants) experience, however the reception at the other end from the hotel limo driver was superb.
