    The location is amaizing.You are on top of hill with view to mount Etna and the bay . The staff in the hotel is verry kind and helpful. I think the best I ever met.They make you feel coumftouble from the minet you arive.

    I got wrealy disapointed from room we got. I was finishing my week holidays at Sicily and decided to stay last 2 nights in Taormina. The room has been marketed as "Garden view room"and the pictures look wrealy nice . It didn't mather to me and I was totaly ok to be in garden view room.But eventualy the room looked more like a basement , actualy it has been totaly diferent room than in the pictures, no bath, no garden view. I asked to upgrade, but they were totaly booked so I stayed for 2 days in boonker like room. So the hotel is good but , do not book the "garden view" rooms. Room 15 to be more specific.

    The hotel is excellent. The view on Etna from the room and from the restaurant, as well as the view on the coast are amazing. Very good breakfast, with local speicalities and not only the well-known hotel breakfast. The personal was extremely helpful and friendly. The best is, ask them before you plan to visit something. they are helping with information, in sicilly you may find yourself otherwise in front of some closed museum...The hotel is not a cheap one but for the price you have all ammenities in a 4-Star hotel and a familiar athmosphere. The hotel is some km away from Taormina, on a hill, but they offer bus transfer for free. Book a room with view on sea.

    The Villa Ducale is a very special place. Perched high up overlooking a spectacular panoramic view of Taormina's sea and coastline, and in the shadow of Mount Etna, this hotel has to have one of the best positions in Sicily. The hotel itself follows traditional designs, but with all the comforts that today's travellers expect - and more. Our room was delightful, the bed very comfortable, the bathroom extremely well appointed. The breakfast is excellent, with local produce and home-cooking. There is an added bonus of cakes at teatime and canapes on the terrace before dinner for guests! And, as if all this wasn't enough, we then come to the staff. We have rarely met such delightful people. All of them are genuinely friendly and helpful and do everything possible to ensure that their guests have everything they want from their holiday. The family-run hotel is professionally managed to a very high standard, with impeccable attention to detail. The efficient shuttle bus service, provided by the hotel, is available to guests at no extra charge and is easy to use. If you want a holiday where you feel like a personal friend, where you don't have to lift a finger, then the Villa Ducale is for you. We loved it.

    The view, hospitality and breakfast were outstanding. The lighted and clear mirror in the bathroom made everybody look beautiful. I also liked having a be-day. It was very quiet because it was a long walk from the action of the town.

    I didn't like that the only view to the outside was through the door, no other windows in the small room. It was a long walk from town.

    Great views and friendly staff.

    The location at the top of the hill of Taormina is a bit of a trek, but it is good to get some exercise.

    The staff was wonderful - treat you like family. Food was great - room was beautiful.

    Bed was a bit too firm for us - need to take shuttle to town - neither was a big deal.

    This is the most amazing place we have ever stayed at in our lives. Everything from the staff, location, attention to detail in the room, incredible food and views was out of the ordinary. It has set a standard for any holiday we will ever have.

    Just wonderful. The hospitality of the hotel staff was amazing. The design and antique furniture of the room was so impressive. They offered not only the rich breakfast but also tea time in the afternoon and and finger snacks in the early evening. Water in the friedge was free. It is a bit expensive than many other hotels in Taormina, but it is worth staying.

    We loved Villa Ducale! The view was stunning! The hotel staff was fabulous. Guest rooms were lovely and bathrooms spacious. The amenities were 5-star level...robes, slippers, fresh flowers, in-room coffee/tea with china cups, sumptious buffet breakfast, complimentary tea and pastries late afternoon, appetizers in the early evening. Free and frequent shuttle service to the town of Taormino. This is a fabulous hotel. Highly recommended!!!

    This was an excellent hotel that more than lived up to the reviews on Trip Advisor. The staff were welcoming, friendly without being intrusive, nothing was too much trouble. The views from the restaurant and from the terrace outside the bedroom were breathtaking, the room itself was carefully decorated and the bathroom was large and light. As everyone has mentioned, the breakfast was excellent, the best I have had in an Italian hotel, where it can be a little sparse and pre- packed. The pastries were fabulous. I have no hesitation in recommending this lovely hotel.

    The hotel sets itself high standards so any complaint could only be at the level of 'niggles' and there were a couple: the only mirrors were in the bathroom and the almost full length one was in the shower, which was not convenient! Also there were insufficient hooks (1 only) in the bathroom for wet towels. It was a little annoying that supplies in the bedroom for tea were not replenished, though it was easy enough to replenish them oneself from the restaurant, however at this level of hotel this should be automatic, as should the replacement of used glasses. But none of the above detracted from our overall pleasure with our stay.

    The view from the terrace.

    In my opinion Hotel Villa Ducale failed to retain the high expectations obtained from the positive review from ta and numerous sites. Location: It is situated high in the mountain and due to the location Staff: I felt the staff at the hotel were generally pleasant however there were moment when I felt as I though should be privileged to be staying at their hotel due to the conduct of the staff. Value: There are certain expectation when you are paying region of €250+ per night. Rooms were small and wear and tear signs of painted wall along with gathering dust around the TV is definitely what I expect. I have travelled all continents of the world and stayed in a tent to 5 star hotels. Summary: My stay at this hotel was the last leg of our honeymoon in Sicily. Unfortunately for us, our stay here has left us with sour taste to our trip. Obviously there has been great review of this hotel in hundreds but unfortunately for us, we could not say the same.
