“Fabulous vacation, the only place to stay in Taormina”

Look no further, this is the only place to stay in Taormina! Absolutely fabulous from start to finish. My wife and I stayed at Villa Suk for a week with our 8 year old son and 5 year old daughter. Very comfortable with everything you need at your fingertips. Villa was well appointed, clean, quiet and as advertised. Check in and out were easy and hassle free. No words can describe or do justice to the view! We never wanted to leave the private patio. When we did, it was only minutes to the public beaches, Isola Bella or the historic (much busier) town center with all the shopping, restaurants etc you could want. The kids loved the pool and taking the elevator down to the private rocky cove for snorkeling and exploring. 10 minutes away (by car) were bakeries, butchers and markets. The caretaker, Rosetta, was wonderful with local connections and recommendations for restaurants etc. I recommend Villa Suk without reservation for a fantastic vacation home in Taormina! Did I mention the view?......

“Dreadfully disappointing.”

We chose Villa Suk because of the pool and the lift down to the beach. A few days before our holiday was due to start Francesco contacted us to say that the pool could not be used for the first week of our stay, offering a small discount for compensation. As it was too late to book anywhere else I accepted this with an assurance that it would only be for the first week. The villa was quite expensive but I felt that the pool and proximity to the sea made it worth it. The pool was only open for 2 days before the end of our holiday - even then it was still being worked on. The showers and toilets were not completed and electrical cables were exposed. There was workmen and debris everywhere.
We also had problems with noisy work being carried out on other apartments in the complex. Major refurbishment on the apartment next door on one side and 2 doors away on the other side started early in the morning and meant the holiday was far from restful!
An overhanging tree was pruned making our garden unusable as sticky sap was dripping profusely.
There are many steps to get down to the accommodation and it is a long walk to the lift and the pool. Fine if you are able bodied but a problem for us as 2 of our party have health issues. The lift to the beach was out of commission on many occasions.
We were charged 500 euros for a broken table which was unsafe as the top was not attached to the legs.
Francesco was very difficult to contact during the holiday and when I managed to speak with him he said the matters were beyond his control.

Management Response

The refurbishment works for the complex pool had a last-minute delay (beyond our control) and therefore the pool only opened in the second week of the guest's stay. Although we were not obliged by contract to do so, considering the inconvenience, we felt right to offer a "moral" compensation of 500 euros while offering the use of a nearby pool. Unfortunately some people try to take advantage of situations. Indeed, after the holiday, we were not too surprised to receive a letter from the guest requesting a compensation of 2500 euros (!) and claiming that "if the matter can be resolved, he would have been happy to make positive recommendations of our villa". This request sounded a bit tricky and we responded saying that no further compensation was due (in addition to the 500 euros we offered). Apart from the disproportionate amount of compensation requested, we don't pay money in exchange of a positive feedback.

In addition, many issues of the above review are simply not true, such as the "unusability" of our garden (just because a minor amount of resin dropped from a tree in one occasion!), the "malfunctioning" of the lift to the beach, the fact that I was "difficult to contact" (I provide my own mobile number to all of our guests and I always answer the phone), and the "long" walk to the lifts (the lifts are located along the corridor of the villa complex, exactly at a minute walk from our door - as for the steps, we are sorry about the access difficulties our guest has experienced, however the rental listing website clearly indicates that the place is not recommended for people with restricted mobility). Finally, as for the broken table, this was a valuable lava stone table decorated by hand in which the heavy top cannot in any way be fixed to the legs.
