Hotel Villa Ducale is one of the best hotels that my wife and I have ever stayed in. The rooms are very clean and well maintained.The view is also amazing! The best part of this hotel however is the service. All the employees here cannot do enough for you. They organized excursions as well as trips into the city centre... More

We finished a month trip to Italy in Taorima, Sicily. The Hotel Villa Ducale was charming and comfortable and the view from the patio, where we enjoyed wine and snacks each evening, was absolutely stunning. The staff could not have been more accommodating and the food was delicious. I don't know how they can afford to put on such a... More

As my husband and I arrived at the hotel we were greeted by a very polite gentleman who immediately parked the car and took our luggage into the hotel. Entering the the lobby was a welcoming staff offering us a beverage and making us feel like family not clients. The room was delightful and immaculate. We even had a selection... More

As a general rule we do not want to go back to the same place twice - but there is always an exception to the rule and Hotel Villa Ducale is that exception. We stayed for 10 days and very quickly felt like one of the family. We genuinely did not want to leave. The staff could not do enough... More

We stayed her for 4 nights last week (suite 32 - amazing views) and just had the most wonderful experience. We were welcomed by Edoardo with a chilled glass of white wine and he explained all the facilities of the hotel. Our suite was just gorgeous, food gorgeous, the shuttle service is brilliant but it is the staff that make... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in August and cannot speak too highly of the accommodation, the staff and the overall experience. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, every one of whom seemed dedicated to making our stay enjoyable. Sicilian breakfast superb, fantastic views and lots of nice little touches like the availability of some... More

All major corporations should send their staff here for charm-training ... our week here was faultless. The price includes all sort of extras included. Breakfast: A marvelous spread of cakes, pastries and savoury hot and cold food to suit all palates. They make their own pastries at their other property, Villa Carlotta, which is down in the town and worth... More

The only real downside is that Villa Ducale doesn't have a pool. If it did, it would be 100% perfect. They did offer use of the pool at their other hotel, but we opted for the beach instead -- if we had more time there we would have tried it. The hotel is located up the mountain from a Taormina,...

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights and we had an absolutely wonderful experience! The staff is amazing and cannot do enough to make you comfortable and feel at home. Santi, Paolo, Eduardo, Loris, Martina, Serena, Lorena just to name a few. The million dollar views combined with tastefully decorated rooms and suites are a winning combination. Small... More

Review: Villa Ducale, Taormina, Italy I recently had the pleasure of staying at the beautiful Villa Ducale in Taormina, Italy for 5 nights. If you value a high-calibre, personalized vacation experience with attention to detail, then this is the place to sit back, soak in the atmosphere and relax. The hotel is a small, intimate, villa-style property (16 guest rooms... More
