Hotel Ducale

Reviewed August 3, 2011

It was a return trip for me (my friends have been many times before) and I can see why they have returned. The hotel is run by a family who are extremely welcoming and friendly! The rooms are spotless and nothing is a hassle or any trouble to the staff. The atmosphere is relaxed and warm. Just sit on the terrace with a cool drink and people watch before (and after) taking a walk on the beach which is just minutes away. The hotel is located a short distance to the shopping area where there are lots of eateries too. We were treated as VIP's, as seems to be the culture in this hotel. Go on their counsel... they know the best restaurants and the places to go around the area. It caters for all - couples, families and groups of friends. A home away from home and I look forward to another visit there soon.

I stayed in the Ducale in July 2011 with my sister and friends. We had an absolutely fantastic time. I have stayed here on a number of occasions with my kids and extended family over the years. The family who own the hotel couldn't be nicer or more friendly. They welcome us back every year like old friends. The hotel is really well located just yards from the fantastic beach, which is really clean, really well organised and caters for everyone, especially kids. It has jacuzzis, trampolines, volleyball, table tennis and even hammocks if you just want to chill out. Cattolica itself has an abundance of really great quality restaurants, the only problem is deciding where to go! We're already hoping to go back again for another visit before the year is out!

Room Tip: Perhaps if you're sensitive to noise, request a room away from the road, but there are shutters.

I have stayed in this hotel seven times over the past eight years and while it hasn't really changed in that time that is a positive thing. I'm a firm believer in 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'. Over the years I have visited with family, friends, couples, small children and I can honestly say it is suitable for all. The area itself is extremely family friendly with children and prams/pushchairs being welcome in all establishments and the beach facilitates families and children superbly with plenty to see and do. The locality is easily accessible on foot with plenty of lovely shops and restaurants, bicycles are also widely used and can be rented locally.

Hotel Ducale is a small, simple family run hotel about 100 metres from the beach. Run with great love by the Signorini family for generations. The rooms are clean, spacious and well-maintained by the cleaning staff. We stayed on a Bed and Breakfast basis which included a light continental breakfast. The family who own and run the hotel are the most friendly and welcoming people you could wish to come across and their local knowledge was priceless to us with several amazing restaurant recommendations not to mention their help organising airport transfers (which are free/discounted depending on where you fly into!), day trips and other taxis.

Cattolica is an amazingly charming little resort with a touch of old world class that I have never experienced on a sun holiday before and I cannot recommend the place or the Signorini's hotel and hospitality enough.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a small balcony and others have next to none so worth asking for one.
