We chose Villa Ducale based on Tripadvisors excellent reviews. We were not disappointed!
Excellent service, the staff were friendly and aim to please - nothing was too much trouble for them. You only had to ask. Our room was clean and bathroom spacious enough with the usual bathrobe, slippers and toiletries supplied. We had a small terrace where we sat to look at the most fantastic view of Mt Etna and the sea. Our room was below the breakfast/restaurant terrace and we could hear the scraping noise of chairs being moved but this did not bother us at all. At night it was very quiet after about 22.30.
The Villa has a free shuttle bus which started at 10.45 taking you down to the centre of Taormina. However, if you want to go earlier there is a local bus service that stops practically outside the villa plus for the walkers there are steps down to the centre. The Villa staff give you all the info you need on your arrival plus a welcome cocktail.
There was plenty to choose from for breakfast and staff also highlight the fact that they don't employ a chef as such but a lady who cooks family meals.
We stayed for one week and were sad to leave - even though it rained for a few days!
We would recommend Villa Ducale for a stay in Taormina.
