"A little tied at the end of the Season"
Spectacular views, delightful staff, perfect position next to the Roman Amphitheatre Ruins and atop Taormina village, easy access to restaurants and shopping, free shuttle to sister hotel Santa Andrea on the beach - divine. However, the Old Girl looks tied at the end of the season. At over $1,000.00 a night one doesn't expect mould in bathroom shower, dripping cisterns and frayed, grubby carpets in the common areas, packet cereals and tinned fruit for breakfast. 2 cats meet and play in the breakfast room each morning and steal the ham off the buffet table when no one is looking - a turn-off at breakfast to say the least.
"Luxury that is worth every cent"
The moment you walk into Reception or arrive at the car park, the staff of this grand hotel do everything they can to anticipate your needs and make them happen before you've even thought about them. The views form the breakfast terrace and the bar patio are superlative with Mount Etna and the Bay of Naxos in front, what a way to look out on the world while enjoying your morning coffee and food. The rooms are Italian art with modern luxury, the bathroom is full of Penhaligon and Bulgari cosmetics, fresh towels daily and they even put a page marker in which ever book you are reading, and on the correct page too. The staff know you by name whether that's at the pool, restaurant or bar. Cocktails are great and afternoon tea comes with the cutest timer you'll ever see as well as little cakes and biscuits. Whether on holiday or honeymoon, this place transports you to its wonderful world of peace, tranquillity and luxury. It is expensive but hey, life is to be celebrated and enjoyed. Work hard when you get back.
"Opulent luxury "
This place is simply the best. Even the most spoilt travelers will find it hard to find something to complain. Clearly not cheap but that is to be expected. Take the in room breakfast that's amazing!!
"EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE AT BELMOND"
The staff at this hotel, starting from the bell man to the front desk people were very courteous and helpful all the time. They knew us by our names and took care of all our needs with an ease. There was never a "NO" for an answer. Everything was possible in this hotel and what a view. This hotel has the perfect location in Taormina. The view from my balcony was picture perfect. We had a great experience at this hotel and I will definitely come back. Thank you Belmond.
"Expensive but the views are awesome"
The Belmond Timeo is an institution. Very expensive but suggest tea on the terrace as the views are amazing. Tea is around 11euro but is served with cookies in a very traditional way with silver teapot and even a very cute timer to check the strength of your tea. Cocktails are also great. Well worth a visit.
