Likewise I've taken too long to post this review but the memory of the holiday and the staff lingers. A spectacular setting and a relaxed reception were perfect. I normally feel a bit overpowered by a top end place to stay but not here. Wonderful hosts, beautiful food and wine and charming people. Can't recommend enough.

What an amazing hotel, from the warm reception we received as soon as we arrived to the warm goodbye when we left. The food in the restaurant was fantastic. Complimentary afternoon tea every day.

From the moment you book your room until the moment you depart at the end of your visit you are the focus of attention. Hotel Villa Ducale is there to serve, and they do this beautifully, with grace and professionalism. On arrival you are given a welcoming prosecco, as well as a brief and interesting history lesson. The Villa overlooks... More

We had a week at this hotel in March 2014. It was superb. We had a suite decorated in local style and the facilities were very good. The staff were very helpful . We would particularly mention Serena, Santi, Eduardo and Paolo. The only caveat would be for anybody with mobility problems being on a hillside, and there are a... More

The staff was one of a kind, making us feel as if we were home.The rooms are clean, unique, and beautiful, while each one has it's own special view. And the food... the food was absolutely amazing!

If you are ever in Taromina Sicily, you must stay at Villa Ducale. Everything from the rooms, the views, the service, and the food were first rate. But the personalities and congeniality of the entire staff as well as the lovely owner made our stay in Villa Ducale something really special!

“Sad stay at Villa Ducale” 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... More
