We just returned from our wonderful trip to Sicily and the Amalfi Coast. Before I arrived I stressed over my choice of hotel because I had read some reviews of Villa Ducale that were less than perfect. Now that I have stayed there for an entire week I cannot understand how anyone would do anything but praise Villa Ducale, it's... More

I stayed here recently for a special occasion. Overall, I definitely recommend the property, but here's a quick overview: PRO's: - The most stunning views of Sicily! Sunsets are to die for (and yes, it does look like the pictures!) - Food was fabulous! Traditional Sicilian cooking that's just as good or better than any restaurant in the area. -... More

Dear Gofferis from Dallas,TX,USA, thank you for your nice review and high mark, we truly appreciated your beautiful words. I am sorry to hear you had the impression that we did not want to give you a simple beach towel; this sounds really strange to me as at Villa Ducale we are extremely generous towards our guests, simply read the...

From the moment we arrived and greeted with a welcome drink on that wonderful balcony overlooking Mt Etna and the coast, to the moment we left with a picnic carefully prepared by the staff, we were made to feel very special by everybody at the Villa Ducale. Everything about this hotel is spot on, the food, the hospitality, the location,... More

My wife and I have just returned from our honeymoon at the hotel and we both agree that the staff are what set this place apart from others. Nothing was ever any trouble from the start to the finish with the place feeling like a real family atmosphere. With only 17 rooms and eating out on the fantastic veranda each... More

My wife and I are pretty experienced travelers and I must say that this hotel is a true standout. The staff from the manager on down has a truly great focus on their guests. Everyone pitches in. The manager was not only the receptionist one day, but also giving us sight seeing advice and on checkout he himself lugged our... More

Wonderful choice above Taormina. Is not right in town but but that probably helps with the noise. The staff and owner were the friendliest we have ever met. They packed a picnic lunch for us while we were visiting the town and we took it on a Mt. Etna tour. Room delightful- not large but bathroom was. Terrific views of... More

The really special thing about this hotel is the friendly, helpful people who work here and are determined to look after you to the best of their ability. They want you to relax and feel at home and they do everything they can to make that happen. The hotel is a rather lovely place too - but I'll let my... More

Seeing all the good comments on this hotel, i can say i had high expectations before getting to spend the night there. Not only did they not disappoint, but they also managed to surprise me! As was said before, the hotel has a perfect situation dominating the bay of naxos, taormina, and the etna, making the view on the terrace... More

Totally agree with the previous reviewer. This is possibly the best hotel we have stayed at. Service is faultless and the views from the terrace and the rooms is just out of this world. The employees go out of their way to helpful. So refreshing to see in this world of chain hotel sameness. However if you are looking for... More

My husband and I had a fantastic stay in Villa Ducale recently. Our room was beautiful with gorgeous views over the bay and Mount Etna. The food was amazing with the breakfast being a particular highlight. The best thing about the hotel is the staff. They really are like one big happy family and during our weeks stay they made...
