We LOVED Taormina and this hotel played a major part in that! The location is not in the heart of Taormina thank god! It's a few minutes up hill with the most amazing breathtaking views! Breakfast is like nothing I've ever had before and our room was more like a luxury 5 star than a 4 star! It was recently... More

We received extremely friendly service during our recent 3 night stay. The staff were all so helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovely, the views amazing and the food was absolutely delicious. You can tell they really take pride in their hotel as it showed through every detail and in every interaction we had with the staff.... More

When we checked into Villa Ducale in beautiful Taormina they told us that their staff was an extension to our family. This turned out to be SO TRUE! Not only did we love the amazing views, incredible rooms and delicious food but they truly took care of us like family. My daughter was so sick with an infection and several... More

Spent 2 wonderful days here Aug 24-25. Fantastic staff throughout Villa Ducale made us feel part of the family. Spotlessly clean, compact room with breathtaking view onto Ionian Sea and Mount Etna. Superb breakfast and divine evening meals with rapid service. Offer free shuttle to Taormina which is very useful. Hotel located on Castelmola route so stick to precise details... More

Villa Ducale has the best service of any hotel I've ever had the pleasure of staying with. The team went above and beyond on multiple occasions to make life as simple as possible. It's the perfect size for a relaxing getaway and it's location provides fabulous views from every vantage point. Breakfast each morning was breathtaking and the tea /... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in August for a long weekend. After arriving very weary at 11pm we were ushered straight onto the terrace and brought drinks and some food and told to relax and that our bags were taken care of...great way to start! We were taken to our room, 3, which was very spacious, comfortable and when... More

We stayed at this fabulous hotel for 4 nights and would have loved to stay even longer! The beautiful views, friendly service, and delicious food were all excellent. Although it is perched high above the town of Taormina, there is an easy walking path winding down to the town center below and the hotel also provides free shuttle service to... More

Our family of four stayed at the Villa Ducale for a week in August. It was one of the best experiences we have ever had. First, the view from our room and from the main eating area is fabulous. It overlooks the bay in Taormina and Mt. Etna; we had all our meals there and spent many hours just enjoying... More

Villa Ducale was one of the best hotels we have ever visited! From the glass of Prosecco given to us when we arrived, to the beautiful views of Taormina as the hotel and area described to us, the warm welcome was just the beginning to a wonderful stay at this fabulous place! Our room was lovely with big terrace with... More

We stayed in the hotel for a full 10 days, and overall had a fantastic time. Our room (6), which i think was a junior suite, was spacious, well equipped and with a wonderful view of the Strait of Messina (I did not see any other rooms). Service was simply outstanding: Daily warm milk delivery at night for our baby,... More
