From the moment we arrived with a very grumpy 2 year old, nothing was a problem. This hotel LOVES children and the service, care and attention to detail is definitely 5 star.
Canapes were laid out daily from 7ish on the main terrace for social drinks, but we also enjoyed the privacy with the same amazing view of Taormina from the terrace of our room. The room itself had bags of space for a cot, and was kept beautifully clean and my 2 year old loved the jacussi bath we all felt very spoilt.
Breakfast was wonderful, my personal fave was the marmelade croissants, but it was all very good, both hot and cold, and the views of Taormina and Mount Etna from the terrace where it is served are incredible.
We all had a great great week, and would highly recommend Villa Ducale to anyone visiting Taormina.
The single bad thing I can say about this hotel is that I now have to find somewhere better - an impossible task I fear!More
