Reviews for Therasia Resort Sea & Spa
I booked the Therasia Resort for my husband's 40th birthday and was super excited as the photos looked amazing. When we arrived the experience was even more than the photos promised. The arrival brought me to tears as we were guided round to the pool area with the most spectacular view. It's regarded as one of the best as you can see all of the islands from that point. The staff are super attentive, professional and extremely accommodating. The reception staff couldn't do enough for us from the time of booking to the moment we left. Big shout out to Pierpaolo, Alessandro and Roberto! The food was amazing, in fact if I'd been given a Ā£1 for every time I said "amazing" on this break I'd have managed to pay for my holiday. We didn't eat in the Michelin starred restaurant just purely because it would have been a waste of money for us as my husband is very fussy, but breakfast, lunch and dinner from the other restaurants were lush. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We were lucky enough to have a sea view room with balcony which, with that view, really is worth it. The only down side was the fact that there was no iron. You get complimentary soft drinks in with the room which is a lovely touch but no tea and coffee making facilities. The spa and gym are well equipped and very relaxing and they offer treatments although we didn't book any. The main pool is salt water, they have two other pools but they were closed when we were there. There are some really lovely quiet/private sun bathing spots all with spectacular views. The bar staff even bring your drinks down to you. We weren't brave enough to take the steps down to the sea for a swim but I'd imagine it's a lovely thing to do when it's warmer. If you want to visit the other islands on an excursion just be aware that these don't run all of the time. If the water is choppy they won't run them but you can get a ferry from the port to island hop if you want. Excursions were only available on the first day of our stay and we were lucky enough to visit Stromboli - absolutely brilliant. Although the weather was lovely it was windy! If you want to climb Stromboli I'd recommend planning at least a one night stay there to be sure you'll be able to do it. It's well worth exploring the beautiful island of Vulcano. We hired a quad which was brilliant fun and good value too. If you're up for it a trip up to the top of the crater is a fab experience if a little smelly. Worth it though for the views and to see the crater itself. We are definitely planning to go back. It was wonderful.

We have travelled all around the world spending thousands of pounds on holidays in the past, this is one of the most enjoyable and easily the best value 5 day get a ways ever. The trip here is long considering the distance travelled but well worth the effort. The location is just stunning and lifts your spirits every waking morning. The transfers we all on time and the people meeting us friendly and helpful. The staff are just lovely and can't do enough, if you want something just ask. The food is amazing! No really amazing, on half board I expected a buffet (The thing I hate the most in this world) buy no a fresh exciting menu every night with views to match. They even have a 1 star Michelin restaurant you can pay to eat in!!! So if you a major food lover they cater for you. The quad hire I was worried about as I've seen how the Italians drive but do it the roads are empty. Driving around the island it so beautiful. The place is a little piece of paradise. Enjoy.
We booked fairly late and wondered about our choice when we read some of the reviews. Our experience has been superlative! The staff are so friendly and happy to do whatever they can to make your stay a pleasant one. For example, there was no kettle in our room for that morning cuppa. We asked and within half an hour, a kettle, teapot China cups and an assortment of tea bags arrived. The food is local cuisine - no pie and chips! And the quality and presentation is amazing. You should be aware that wine is expensive and it is worth asking to see the wine list before agreeing to the wine waiter's suggestion. But the cost of wine in the shops is high anyway. All the transfers worked smoothly, although the trip is long, so don't expect a quick journey. The rooms are comfortable and well worth the extra for a sea view. Everyone is so friendly and all take pride in their island. Regular courtesy buses take you to the harbour where you can get the hydrofoil to neighbouring islands. A tour of Vulcano with Santi is a wonderful experience and a walk to the top of the crater is breathtaking - literally! We have had a wonderful time and thoroughly recommend the holiday. The season has not yet started in earnest so many trips etc are not yet runnng, but we have found plenty to do and see.
My husband and I spent one week at the Therasia on a bed, breakfast and dinner option. The transfers to/from Catania were long, but at every stage of the jouneys we were met promptly and there were no problems. We were welcomed to the hotel warmly, and staff were professional and informed. Our room was very attractive with a huge terrace with chairs, table and large sun-loungers. The breadfast and dinner was outstanding, with exceptional service from attentive staff. The menu was based on Siciian menus, with lots of fish, always interesting, so we never went to the Cappeto restaurant. The wine list is extensive and expensive, with the sommelier guiding you . The hotel gardens were very attractive, with plenty of seating and lounging areas to choose from, and the pool area and views are stunning. Vulcano island is small, but it is fun to take the regular hydrofoils to exlore the other Aeolian islands.

My wife and I returned to the Therasia Resort at the beginning of May 2017 following our first visit with a couple of friends last year in late September, we wanted to spend more time at this stunning location as we had such a wonderful time during our first visit. We were extremely pleased to be told on arrival that we had been upgraded to a sea-view room as we were returning guests. We imagine the Resort would not be able to offer this during peak season, but we really appreciated the gesture, the view from our room was amazing. We booked the holiday again through Fleetway Travel, we are surprised at some of the negative comments as the deal that Fleetway offer for a 5 star hotel with such stunning scenery, and fine dining is really excellent. The choice at breakfast cannot fail to satisfy, and the evening meal which consists of four courses is more than adequate for the healthiest of appetites. My wife and I found that we had to forego the first course as it proved too much, thus enabling us to enjoy the sweets on the menu which were fantastic. We would like to say a big thank you to Massimo and Alberto, who were very attentive in the main dining room, and could not do enough for all the guests. That said, all the staff were very obliging, but we did not get their names. The islandās main attraction appears to be the volcano, which looks quite daunting from the harbour area, but the winding pathway makes the walk to the summit accessible for most people. It is possible to visit all 7 islands via the hydrofoil ( Liberty Lines ) from the port area, but the hotel can usually arrange trips to Panerea/Stromboli and Filicudi/Alicudi slightly cheaper. Both the above being 2 island trips in a single day. We visited Vulcano, Lipari, Panarea and Stromboli last year, the latter two combined in a single day, with a local boat trip, but arranged through the hotel. This year we completed the set, visiting Salina, Alicudi and Filicudi, using the hydrofoil. Alicudi and Filicudi take around 1 Ā½ hours as the hydrofoil picks up at Lipari, Salina, and Rinella, which is another port in Salina, before dropping off at Filicudi and Alicudi. It then does the reverse route on the return journey. We have visited a lot of countries around the world and the Aeolian Islands rank as one of our favourites, we hope to return sometime in the future and of course to the Therasia Resort.
