For the second year running we have just had a truly wonderful holiday at the Hotel Villa Ducale. The location and the magnificent views are exceptional but what really makes a stay there so memorable and outstanding is the genuine warmth and friendliness of the owner Rosario and every single member of her dedicated team. A truly family atmosphere.There is not enough space to mention everyone by name but special thanks must be given to Paulo, Alicia, Santi and Serena who are so willing to go that extra mile to provide a genuinely 5+ star service. Nothing is too much trouble.
The attention to detail and quality is excellent, from the breakfasts to the complementary afternoon pastries and evening canapés, all locally made, right through to the decor of the rooms. When a hotel takes special care over such things as the fine quality of bathroom products and beach bags and towels you know instinctively that nothing has been left to chance.
We took friends with us for this second visit. They were equally impressed and confirmed that we had not exaggerated the quality of the experience in any way whatsoever when inviting them to join us this time.
