    Excellent location,views,staff,service,very comfortable.

  • Group of friends

    The accommodations were first rate. The view from our balcony of the sea and of Mt. Etna was breathtaking. I loved the proximity of the hotel to the Taormina shopping area. I am already planning my return trip to the Grand Hotel Timeo. We ended up staying in a Junior Suite rather than the Double Deluxe Room.

    The signs in Taormina to the Grand Hotel Timeo could be better. It was hard for us to find the hotel entrance and the parking area.

  • Group of friends

    The hotel was quite beautiful and well located. The breakfast on the terrace with the beautiful view was a delight.

    We were located in the annex which we would not have taken if we realized it. Although the room was nice, we felt isolated.

  • Older travelers

    We were not satisfied with our original room in the annex,but were upgraded to a suite in the main building with a wonderful view as soon as the staff realized our unhappiness.

    The Opera at the Teatro Greco

    Children in the pool. there was only a 2 hour window when they weren't allowed (2-4pm). It should have been the opposite.
