A glorious 5 nights stay in one of the suites. The décor was truly amazing with its ornate Italian taste and beautiful floor tiles in blue and orange throughout. The suite had a small balcony with amazing views of the sea and on a clear day it was easy to see mainland Italy. The suite was immaculately clean and generously had three different types of showers within the double-size shower unit.
We enjoyed the complementary sweet and savory canapés served at intervals throughout the day. We also visited the sister hotel to use their pool but stayed the full-day as it was very difficult to leave. It’s hard to compare which is the best of these two hotels as they are both equally stunning as each other and have their own unique stamp printed on them.
We were fortunate to meet the Hotel’s charming and proud owner briefly who gave us a recommended place to visit. A beautiful little quaint town about 10 minutes from our hotel called Castelmola. It was scene parallel to a fairytale with its dainty piazza commanding impressive views of Taormina and the wonderful charming, unusual shops and a pub displaying humorous phallic symbols in every corner.
Thank you to all the helpful staff at Villa Ducale for your patience with our daily bombardments of questions. We are sure to return again.
