One off the best places I stayedPosted Oct 31, 2014
Pros: The hotel room was beautiful and the private beach is so beautiful and private.
Cons: Staff at the front desk didn't speak a lot of English if that is needed and weren't overly accommodating.
Location: Boat cruise, cable car to old town with restaurants and ampitheatre.
It was fantastic. It had its own private beach and pool. Was walking distance to the cable car up to the old town. The breakfast buffet was amazing. I would recommend the private boat tour for an hour where they take you to the grottos etc.

Tired, run-down, disappointingPosted Nov 3, 2013
Pros: Lovely view of the bay
We paid top dollar for 2 suites on a half hoard basis. The rooms were dimly lit, the furniture ancient, the beds uncomfortable and the food simply disgusting. Each Suite had private swimming pools, which were unheated, as was the main hotel swimming pool. This might work in mid-summer, but in October/November, the water in the pools were unbearably cold and therefore pointless. Even though we had paid in advance for the entire stay (Over £5000 for 4 nights!), we decided to write-off the whole amount and save our holiday. We checked into the Hotel Timeo, which was simply divine and, incredibly, less expensive than this dump - and the pool was heated!

Great hotel for a relaxing holidayPosted Oct 6, 2010 on Hotels.com
The hotel is a 5 star hotel and the attention of the staff justify that status. The rooms are of a good size with a great view over the bay and the bathroom is very spacious. The breakfast is extensive but watch for the added extras like fresh orange juice which is expensive. The bar is equally expensive with a glass of diet coke being the equivalent to a bottle of wine in the UK. The hotel is situated on a shingle beach at the bottom of the old town of Taomina which is reached by cable car. The old town is vibrant and has great shops and cafes. The area around the hotel is lacking in places to eat unless you go to the old town. The hotel staff were very hospitable but it was concerning that the hotel seemed devoid of customers considering it was the first week in September. Internet connection is very expensive.
