Villa Ducale is perfect, it has one of those qualities that cannot be purchased or contracted, it is just creates a fit with you as a person, relaxing with soft understated service. Never before have I found myself wanting to get back to a hotel at a certain time just to sit and drink on the patio and feel the... More

It's like having your own villa in Sicily! The staff can not do enough for you it feels as if everyone is part of the family it is hard to distinguish the owners from the staff as the are all so happy and helpful. There is such an abundance of food from breakfast to afternoon tea to appetizers before dinner.... More

Gracious owner operator Rosaria hires well and knows what ''little additional touches'' make a difference. Paollo is in charge and will ''get it done'' for you as YOU are an ''important guest''. Santina, Eduardo (ed du ar do....say it right), Santini (the saint...just ask him), Cigar, and the charming and nice to look at Martini Red (Martina) all work well... More

Our third visit in as many years was as enjoyable as the first. The owner and every single member of the hotel management and staff are so willing to go that extra mile to make one's stay a true and genuine pleasure. Their approach is as consistent as the views which of course are difficult to beat. Villa Ducale fully... More

We booked Hotel Villa Ducale for an impromptu trip to Sicily and I was extremely impressed by the quality of the service, the very comfortable rooms and most importantly the absolutely delicious food. The hotel is situated slightly outside of the hustle and bustle of the town and therefore is more peaceful. Having said this you are close enough to... More

Spent 6 nights at Villa Ducale at the end of our honeymoon/Italy roundtrip. We could't have chosen a better place to stay! We felt instantly relaxed. The hotel is at the far top of the city, away from all the noise and has a beautiful view that you can admire for hours while relaxing at the balcony or the common... More

Paolo and his fellow staff were fantastic. Great local knowledge. Pointed us in the right direction and made a great squid ink pasta at our request one night. Couldn't do enough Hotel away from the hustle and noise of the main area, but can be walked in 20 minutes and has the best views of town and coastline. Breakfast each... More

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
