It's difficult to put it any better than previous glowing reviews, but the stand out thing about Villa Ducale is that the staff really do care and go all out to make your stay a memorable one. It's a very informal setting and you get to feel more like a personal guest than a customer - so if you're somebody who prefers the anonymity that comes with staying in bigger hotels, Villa Ducale may not be for you! We stayed here for two weeks on honeymoon in a superior double room with a dual-aspect terrace and fantastic views over the bay and Mt. Etna. We loved the additional touches like the evening buffet and free room service. In the interests of balance, it's only fair to point out two slight negatives. Firstly, there is no pool (only a jacuzzi). Apparently there are plans to change this and in the meantime guests have the use of the pool at sister hotel Villa Carlotta. Secondly, we also found that the aircon struggled to cope with the sweltering heat in mid-July.
Overall, these are only minor gripes and we would have no hesitation at all in recommending Villa Ducale.
