We decided to return to the Villa Ducale as part of a two week holiday in Sicily. We had previously stayed at the Villa Ducale in 2008 and while the hotel had a rustic feel about it then, there has been extensive modernisation of the rooms since our original visit. What has not changed is the level of service and the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. As the hotel is high above Taormina, the hotel still runs a complementary bus into the town. Alternatively, you can walk down the nearby steps and, if you are brave enough, walk back up. The views of Etna from the hotel are stunning. Hopefully it will not be another 8 years until we return.

Room tip: Room 10 is worth considering

It's difficult to add anything to what other reviewers have said. This is a wonderful hotel where the staff can't do enough for you. Other hotels could learn so much from them. The location above the main centre of Taormina not just affords stunning views of Etna and the sea but allows easy access to Castelmola which is a short bus ride or a steep walk up the hill. We moved on to a spa hotel on Salina after our stay and found it difficult to adjust after Villa Ducale's level of service. Would return in a heartbeat.

Room tip: Room 32 has a lovely big terrace with amazing views and space to sunbathe on a lounger.

Dear Paula,

thank you for your wonderful review.
In 1990 the Quartucci’s opened Villa Ducale with an ambition to create a boutique hotel that
captured the very best of Taormina and Sicily. The plan was to deliver a service
experience equal to the very best hotels in Italy.
Our purpose has not diminished
over the intervening years, this winter we spent time completely renovating our
rooms to deliver warm bright spaces with Italian design.
We are glad you liked what you saw.

Perfect get away when you want to stay a few days in Taormina. Small hotel that offers a really personal service and gives you the feeling of being a guest. Staff is extremely friendly, nice rooms and offer a service to the beach.
