My boyfriend and I stayed at Villa Ducale last week (along with my brother and sister-in-law, who also wrote a glowing review) and had the best hotel experience ever. The staff at the hotel are really what make it stand out, they do truly make you feel like a personal guest and not a customer. From the minute we arrived (where our bags were carried to our room and we were escorted to the terrace for an awesome dinner and a glass of wine) to the minute we left (having one last cocktail on the terrace and stopping to get a photo with Antonio) we just had an amazing stay. Our room (11) had a terrace overlooking the sea and while my brother had problems with his a/c (room 10), our room was perfect in temperature (with the a/c pumping hard all week in the sweltering August heat). The bathroom had great amenities (you know that's important for us women), with a regular size blowdryer (with attachments) and good size lotions, shower gels, and shampoo.
One thing that stood out to me was how wonderful every area of this hotel smelled!! From both the gorgeous flowers and the reed diffusers placed in just the right spot...set the perfect environment!!
Overall, an amazing hotel stay for my first (but not last) trip to Sicily. My boyfriend has already recommended Villa Ducale to his mom and her friends (who travel frequently to Europe). I hope to be back soon!!!
