From the moment you step into the hotel you know you are somewhere special, within moments the staff know your names and continually address you personally. A beautiful hotel with a magnificent terrace overlooking the sea, we were lucky to be upgraded to a deluxe sea view room which was in the main building, with a terrace. The pool area... More

Outstanding hotel - beautiful rooms, amazing views and a great team all round. A special thanks to Pancreas at the pool and to be fair to everyone at the restaurant which not only serves great food, and has a beautiful view of the city, but probably has the best service of Italy. It was an amazing experience and all of... More

Beautiful location, for the best cocktails you could ask for!! Price is steep but this is what you get for excellent service, products and the history of this place!! Excellent music and our own little table, made this a very memorable night. If you don't have the cash (like I don't) this is a one off visit!!

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and were upgraded to a Deluxe Sea View room. The room was quite small, however, the balcony and views were beautiful. I would definitely book a larger room next time. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel was also centrally located and in perfect proximity to many shops and restaurants.... More

We stayed for one night at the Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo for celebrating our first year of marriage. The hotel is simply beautiful and the view from the terrace is absolutely breathtaking. If you are looking for a dream spot in sicily in a "belle epoque" hotel, the Timeo should be your address.

Walking down from a hike up to Taormina's impressive Greco Theatro, our family was both a bit dry and tired. Attracted by Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo's beautiful grounds, we entered and were escorted to the expansive, restful, and attractive garden patio, served by very attentive waiters. The most amazing thing was the view of Taormina seemingly hugging the hills and... More

Best location in the town center right next to the Greek theater. First class service where everyone know your name. Rooms were very clean with turn down service. Staff was very eager to accommodate and very friendly. Beautiful pool with a shuttle to the sister property on the beach. Highly recommend

The Grand Timeo is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in - it is a cut above other 5 star hotels, by some margin. The location is simply stunning - you cannot get a better view over Taormina, the entire bay and over towards Mount Etna. People clamber in the few squares in the town that overlook... More
