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

It is possible to drive in Sicily, as long as you're prepared to share the streets and lanes with Italians who think they are Michael Schumacher. But it is almost impossible to find a park in Sicily, especially the highly picturesque town of Cefalu. So, if you are driving to Cefalu and you want the perfect place to park your... More

Not sure why Mare Blu is rated so highly on TripAdvisor. While the place was clean and Yolanda and Roberto were hospitable and helpful, our ground floor room was quite dismal. We travel quite a bit and expect a certain amount of disheveled charm from B&Bs, however, this room not only lacked charm, it was dark and uncomfortable with nowhere... More
