We arrived a bit frazzled from London because we had missed our flight the day before but from the minute we entered this hotel to be greeted by Antonio we began to relax. The hotel has such a lovely feel to it - everything about is very well done. It is pretty, charming and elegant with many nice touches. The view from the terrace where you can eat or just enjoy a drink is superb. Our deluxe suite was very nice and spacious - like a mini apartment. We also took advantage of 'romantic escapade' package which was fantastic value 150 euros for transfer to and from Catania Airport, fresh fruit, beautiful bouquet of red roses, bottle of champagne in our room and a home cooked meal for two. The meal was absolutely delicious, cooked by the wonderful Santina who is an ecellent chef. In fact, all the food served at the Hotel is of a very high standard, with best choice of breakfast possible. There are so many good restaurants in Taormina and we had so many good meals that my Husband put on 10lbs in 9days despite all the walking we did!! Our favourite restaurant was in Castelmola called La Bocciola - excellent decor, seriously good food and a really charming maitre'd. Talking of charming brings me back to the staff at Villa Ducale and as mentioned by so many previous reviewers they are really helpful, genuine and warm . Fell in love with Taormina and we can't wait to go back. Thanks Paolo, Antonio, Lucca, Alyssa and all the rest of you at Villa Ducale for making our stay so thoroughly enjoyable.
