'We have just returned from 5 nights in this wonderful hotel, in a most beautiful place. From the moment you arrive, the staff are there to look after your every need. The rooms were superb, the housekeeping spotless. Breakfasts were wonderful, sitting on the terrace with that wonderful view. And the choice amazing. The Restaurant Manager was magnificent. Remembering your name whenever he saw you! The food was delicious at every meal, and the knowledge of the staff regarding local wines was so helpful. We will go back.' John - July 2014
'My wife and I have recently returned from our fourth visit to the Grand Hotel Timeo in Taormina. Despite the very best efforts of Mount Etna to disrupt our holiday we, once again, had a thoroughly enjoyable time in all respects. From the very moment we stepped out of the car on arrival to the very last moment, as one of the Hall Porters loaded our bags into the car on departure, we were treated in the most personable and friendly manner by every member of staff we met. It is this genuinely warm welcome, premier service, meticulous attention to detail and, of course, the superb food and wine that bring us back again and again.' James - July 2014
'The food was amazing, we ate in the hotel three evenings. The seafood was beautiful as was every other meal we had, and not silly prices. A bonus for me was gluten free pizza for lunch. A rare treat on holiday as I am coeliac.' Elizabeth - June 2014
