We have been meaning to write a review every since we returned home! We cannot say enough wonderful things about Hotel Villa Ducale! We have stayed at many hotels in the U.S., Canada & Europe, but have never experienced the superb hospitality that was shown to us by ALL the staff at Hotel Villa Ducale! Upon our arrival, Hotels.com messed up our reservation & they went over-the-top to make certain that we had a room. Not only did they find us a room, on the first night, they also gave us complimentary beverages & did not charge us for the room (because of Hotels.com error).Our 2nd night there, they moved us to an even better room than what we had booked! Never have we felt so pampered & well taken care with the utmost respect.
We were only going to stay a few nights & then head down to Siracusa, but we ended up staying here longer! The views from our room & the large terrace where you can sip on a drink & eat the fabulous breakfast (that is made fresh daily), are breathtaking. Sometimes, we just sat there & stared out at the magnificent view rather than go into town. It is truly pure heaven! I must say that the breakfast is FABULOUS! Everything is fresh, fresh, fresh!!!
The restaurants that they recommended to us were also top notch! We did celebrate our 10th anniversary at the Hotel & the food was excellent!!
I cannot give this hotel one negative. Fabulous, perfect, beautiful, breathtaking ,great location, personable, hospitable, exceptionally clean, professional are just a few words to describe Hotel Villa Ducale!
We ARE going back this coming November to celebrate our anniversary once again & God willing, we will be back each & every year!!
Thanks to all the staff!! You should be proud!!!
