We spent one week of vacation in Taormina and stayed at the Villa Ducale. The warm and very friendly welcome was just the beginning of a great stay. The view is just great! You really feel that the people working there (especially Alessia, Santi, Antonio and the driver of the shuttle) do their best to assure that you have a great time there.
The rooms are modern and very clean, quite small though (standard room). The breakfast buffet, the free afternoon tea with the Sicialian pastry assured that we left the place with a few additional pounds on our hips -- just delicious. The daily bruschette and other small appetizers (free) were great together with our daily 'aperitivo'.
The hotel is not close to the heart of Taormina but there's a free shuttle service to the town and to the beach as well. The Hotel Villa Ducale is totally worth the money.
