Where do I start? From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we were made to feel special. Paolo and his team (Fabrizio, Daniele, Milena, Luana) all went the extra mile to ensure that all of our needs were met. We were staying with our daughter and the Design Suite (No 6) was beautiful and well maintained. The restaurant has a stunning location with views of Mount Etna with delicious food. I am vegetarian but nothing was too much trouble for the chef. Rosaria was warm and friendly and treated us like family. A special mention has to go to Paolo who arranged so many fabulous trips for us - Mount Etna hiking with a guide (great fun), wine tasting at Fischetti (sublime), tickets to see I Tre Tenori at Il Teatro Greco (magical) not to mention securing us the best beach beds at La Caravella Beach Club! He also arranged for a car and driver (the wonderful Umberto) to take us to Castelmola and Savoca (The Godfather Village) which were very pretty villages. Restaurant recommendations were spot on - do eat on the terrace at their sister restaurant Villa Carlotta. Thank you all for making our stay so memorable… We will be back!

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Ducale. The views are breathtaking, staff very helpful and the food delicious. I would have given 5 stars but I think the bathrooms could do with updating (we had a 1990s style jacuzzi bathtub and old fashioned shower). The mini bar also lacked supplies - ours just contained a couple of bottles of water. Other than that I'd highly recommend this hotel.

A return visit to this hotel - we loved it so much before that we had to go back. Perched at the top of the town on the road to Castelmola, the views over the Bay of Naxos and the town are amazing. We had a room in the main hotel this time which had a large balcony with relaxing chairs overlooking the sea and Etna - it was next to the dining room so you have the exact same views when you are eating which is delightful. The welcome on arrival and the friendly service throughout the stay are second to none. There is a large lounge area with comfortable seating to relax in after dinner and a swimming pool just across the road. There is a small car park - enough space for about 5 cars so do book a space if you need one. They run a minibus service up and down to the town throughout the day so easy to get to wherever you want to. The breakfast selection is incredible with sweet and savoury and hot and cold options. I would definitely recommend eating here at least once as the food is spectacular and they are more than happy to cook anything special for you with sufficient notice. It is a luxury hotel with incredible attention to detail - nothing is too much trouble. Also being away from the hustle and bustle of the busy town is nice - it is very peaceful. Would highly recommend and hope to return again.

The hotel view, the hotel design and the hotel staff were an absolute delight. Going to Taormina during peak tourist season, Hotel Villa Ducale offers a beautiful escape---just a few steps into the city center, while also overlooking one of the most stunning views I have had in any hotel, between Mount Etna and the sea below. The staff is incredibly helpful, pleasant and attentive. The room was beautiful. Breakfast overlooking the view, while listening to Ludovico Einaudi was unimaginable. Paolo was especially helpful, taking the time to provide suggestions on where to go and things to try. Thanks to you all for a lovely stay!
