Villa Ducale is a very special hotel. Small and intimate with a staff who knows your name, cares about your comfort and responds to every request. The rooms are nicely appointed with large bathrooms and comfortable beds. Built into the side of a mountain there are some steps to be walked but if you can manage that, then this is... More

Hotel Villa Ducale is indeed as good as the many excellent reviews are indicating. Breathtaking view over Sicily and the Mt. Etna. Location not exactly in Taormina city center; approx. 5 min car drive (~ 20 min by feet) above Taormina. Very nice restaurant on terrace serving excellent buffet breakfast. Rooms are large and most have a balcony or terrace... More

My wife and I just returned from a wonderful vacation in Sicily. The trip was perfect except for our stay at the Hotel Villa Ducale in Taormina, where we stayed for 4 nights. Taormina was even more beautiful that we expected, however the Villa Ducale was a disappointing experience. When we arrived at Hotel Villa Ducale, we were greeted by... More

We arrived just after dark and were greeted warmly. We didn't see the views until the following morning and it was just beautiful. Staff was very warm and helpful no matter the time of day. Even their sister location, Carlotta, where we went for dinner one evening, was great. So the location was beautiful, but the customer service made this... More

Read the reviews, they are very useful. The travelers who gave this hotel less than excellent ratings would have been better off with a hotel in downtown Taormina. For me, the distance is an advantage, I don't mind taking the shuttle and then coming back to a great nap. For people who like to be able to come and go... More

The beauty, staff, food, rooms, verandas, views and total atmosphere exceeded our expectations in every way! I I don't ever recall being greeted by people who sincerely cared that our stay at their hotel and the town would be wonderful. Believe it or not, when I asked them if they will have mussels on their menu the next night for... More

I fully agree with the many other posts in regards to the friendly and attentive staff, the beautiful setting and wonderful food - this hotel is simply superb. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Villa Ducale - and I say this is in spite of arriving in the middle of a rare 'Medicane' (mediterranean hurricane) and... More

We have stayed at the Villa Ducale with another couple. There are only good things to say about this hotel. The interior design is beautiful, the rooms are very nice and spotless clean with terrace to the sea and to the Etna that is so close and seems that you can touch it... There is a big terrace where an... More

We had a fantastic week at Villa Ducale. Friendly and attentive staff, who had time for guests and were always helpful. Truly wonderful location with breathtaking views of Mount Etna. Excellent food. We took our two teenage daughters and they said it was one of the best hotels they have stayed in, and are looking forward to returning. Highly recommended.

You can rave about the views of Etna and Taormina but the real gem at Villa Ducale is the service provided by every member of the staff. When making our reservation months earlier, my wife mentioned we were celebrating our 30th anniversary. When we were shown to our room, which had 2 terraces and spectacular views, we were pleasantly surprised... More
