I was delighted to return to the Villa Ducale and found, after three years, that they have kept up the very high standards that brought me back and have even managed to make some improvements. The staff are as outstanding as on my previous visit. We ate dinner in the hotel on our first evening and were so impressed with the food and friendly service that we saw no reason to look elsewhere during the rest of our stay.

If you are looking for a magical location high above a beautiful old town, where you feel you are staying with friends, Villa Ducale is the place.

It's hard to believe that the Hotel Villa Ducale has improved since our visit in 2008. The greeting was even warmer (a great incentive to return) and the introduction of the evening session for drinks on the terrace - apart from its wonderful staff, its greatest asset - did much to allow fellow guests to share their gushing enthusiasm for the experience we were each enjoying. A special thanks to the entire team - front and back of house, drivers and cleaners etc - for their kind and friendly service. And a particular mention for making my birthday such a special evening. We chose to spend it with you in the confidence that we would have the best treatment, the best home made food and the best company possible. We have found our own "Famiglia Siciliana" and we will return to see you again as soon as we can.

This was a treat for our honeymoon and we loved the 3 nights we spent at Dulace. Luca the owner educated us on Sicilian life, Antonio welcomed us in on our arrival with a perfect local glass of wine and Alicia took time to explain the benefits of the hotel in our arrival "briefing". Loved the extras such as free hotel shuttel bus, DVD's for quiet nights in (we of course watched The Godfather!), amazing breaksfast spread (prosecco and cake as additional goodies plus the usual breakfast fare) and the evening cocktail hour with complimentary canapes overlooking glorious Etna and the shimmering lights of Taormina below. This is not a cheap hotel, but it is indeed very lovely and highly deserves its ranking.

How can I put this? Hotel villa Ducale is simply the best. The best food, restaurant, views, rooms, service, staff, location, ambience, wines, and owners. The entire staff go to great lengths to make your stay wonderful. I cannot gush enough about this place. Franchesca, and Santina cooked some of the best foods we have ever eaten in Italy. Everyone was so helpful and nice! If you're looking for the hidden gem in Sicily, come here. The only sad part was having to leave. THANKS, HOTEL VILLA DUCALE for the best vacation yet!!!!!!
