You must be doing something right to have both the number 1 & 2 ranked hotels in Taormina (Ducale & Carlotta)! And indeed, the owner Rosario and here team do a fantastic job. Ducale has the better view, being high up on the hill. The view from both our room and the covered terrace, where breakfast and dinner are served was simply amazing -- with Etna to the right, through to the Castle high above town on the left, with the coast and sea in the middle, the view is uninterrupted! We had the junior suite in the roof space with its own private entrance - it is huge, beautifully decorated with a completely private terrace boasting the best views in the hotel -- it is worth the extra cost! Everyone gushes about the service - it is as good as the view! Everyone has their staff favorites and ours was Serena serving at dinner. We loved the food, we loved the Prosecco Rose but most of all we loved Serena, she made us feel so welcome! We spent most days at the beach. The free shuttle would pick us up in the morning & take us to La Caravella beach club which was like an extension of the hotel, starting a tab based on our room number, not surprising really when you often meet the owner & her family there enjoying the beach! It all made for a most memorable holiday, the type you never want to end!
