We made reservations here for one night, based on the great reviews here on Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed. In fact, we loved it so much, we returned to Mare Blu for our last 2 nights in Sicily. Echoing what everyone else has said--fantastic views, very close to Cefalu, outstanding hosts, fair price, comfortable rooms, wonderful breakfast. Whole-heartedly... More

We stayed here at the beginning of our Sicily trip, what a great start. The view is stunning, the gardens are beautiful, and the welcome is superb. We stayed for one night in a family room, the beds were very comfortable and the whole room clean. Breakfast is al fresco on the terrace with the sea as a stunning backdrop.... More

Going up the hill the entrance is an experience. It's fortunate that my son is a good driver. Since it is not in Cefalu we were happy to have a car. It is a rather long walk down the hill to get to go swimming. The accommodations are great but our rooms were up flights of stairs. The breakfast was... More

Firstly I think any review of Mare Blu is very dependent on which room you get. We had a chalet up above the B&B and it was lovely. We loved the peace and quiet especially at night. It was great to be able to cook if needed and we used the very rocky beach across the road a lot. We... More

Its been nearly a year since we stayed here and I suddenly realised that I hadn't posted a review, so here it is! The Mare Blu is a B&B outside of Cefalu. Its on a hill and the communal areas (and I reckon some of the chalets) have a lovely view of the sea. There is a very nice covered... More

This specious B&b has several rooms of varying size and amenities - all very private and have an amazing view of Cefalu Bay, really breath taking. The rooms are clean and very well equipped and you can easily spend a day eating, reading and drinking, just watching the sun rise and fall over the cefalu. The 'Sea-view' rooms are definitely...

Unbelievable view of the sea! the place is laid back B&B with spacious rooms and make-it-yourself breakfast. Most rooms require some step climbing so carrying your suitcases might be a hassle. Preparing breakfast actually turned out to be good fun. The dining and cooking area is outdoors and overlooks the sea. It is a quick drive to reach Cefalu.

We returned home just yesterday (26th November) and are already looking to book again for next year! The location is perfect (we hired a car) as it is situated just outside of Cefalu. The setting is fantastic, our apartment veranda facing out over the sea and nestled in a rustic and attractive garden. The breakfast was more like a morning... More

This is a fantastic place to visit Cefalù and its surroundings and not being involved in the hustle of the touristic streets of the village. Obviously if you are a shopping fan, maybe is better to get another accomodation in the village. But for those that, after a beach day, a shopping day or an excursion day in the fantastic... More

After an overnight ferry from Naples, and the rather abrupt entry into Palermo, we weren't in the best of sorts to receive Sicily with open arms, but any doubts were quickly diminished once we found ourselves turning off the road into Mare Blu. We had made a mistake in our planning and forgot to provide a deposit, but Yolanda was... More
