We LOVED Hotel Villa Ducale! It was small enough to make us feel like family, yet had the views and luxury of a top tier hotel. My husband and I stayed in one of the Junior Suites that had just been renovated with a sleek new bathroom/m/shower and large glass doors in front of a view of the ocean and... More

We have recently returned from a nine night stay at Villa Ducale and could not have chosen a better hotel for our honeymoon.. From the moment we arrived after a tiring journey our spirits were lifted as we sipped a complimentary prosecco and savoured the breathtaking view from the dining room. What an introduction to the hotel and the smile... More

After a windy and steep drive up to the Villa Ducale, we felt we had arrived in heaven. We were greeted with a glass of prosecco and a magnificent view out over Taormina and Mt. Etna. . . it doesn't get much better than this! The hotel is perched on the hill above Taormina with views down to Taormina, the... More

This was the first leg of our 4 stop Italian family adventure. My husband and I were traveling with our 2 adult children as well as his sister, her husband and 3 adult children. As soon as we checked in ( after a long exhausting travel day), Eduardo made us all feel right at home! With glasses of Prosecco in... More

If I could give this hotel six stars, I would. In fact, seven, eight or nine stars would still be underselling it! We chose Villa Ducale as a 'grand finale' to our honeymoon, and we were not disappointed. The place lives up to every expectation you might have of it after browsing the website. A view from the terrace to... More

This is a first review of a property I didn't stay in...With the abundance of Ducale everything in Sicily, I've set my GPS on the right street (if one can call the narrow uphill pass, not recommended to american drivers) and was overjoyed to find a flat parking place available! The valet was checking my name against his list, and... More

don't look any further this is the place for you!!! The views, the rooms, the staff, the food all above our expectations. We stayed in two of the Luxury Design Suite across the road with astonishing views of the straits of Messina, mainland Italy and the sea. Thank you to all of the staff for a memorable stay, grazie Ilie,... More

Our stay at Villa Ducale was a memorable event; the levels of service and general client care were exceptional from all staff at the hotel. The location is breath-taking with wide expansive views over the Ionian Sea with Etna off to the right; on clear days the view extends as far as Syracuse. The food quality was extremely good with...

We spent three night at Villa Ducale and had a great experience all around. The service is exceptional, attention is paid to every detail. The breakfast buffet is generous and complementary snacks are served in the afternoon. We had a large view with a beautiful room. We would definitely come back!

The views will make you swoon. So we were swooning at breakfast, dinner, and from our very own terrace, overlooking the sea and town on one side and towering Mt. Etna on the other. The hotel is situated high above Taormina and offers a shuttle bus to town, but we chose to walk the 600 steps up and back, along... More
