In May I spent a two-week holiday in Sicily at the Cefalu Sea Palace, for my 70th birthday. The hotel and staff were truly excellent but I have to give special credit to Vicenzo, the head chef. Not only did he provide very good four-course meals every evening but I had the best service ever in a hotel for my... More

My wife and I returned to Cefalu after 43 years and it is still a beatiful place to visit. We highered a car and drove for just over an hour from Palermo airport to the hotel, which has its own car park. The Cefalu Sea Palace is well well situated adjacent to the sea front. It has its own private... More

Can I begin by correcting another review by commenting that Cefalu is pronounced:- K (as in kettle) e (as in egg) fa (as in a long way to go) loo (like cornwall town). Enough said on that subject but not one member of staff in this hotel was either aloof or unfriendly in fact all were very affable and curteous.... More

Well as we always like to be positive let us start with the fact that we had a great time in Cefalu or Chef - A - Loo as they like to pronounce it. One thing to note is that this particular resort is about a 90 minute drive from Palermo Airport and even further from Catania Airport. We got... More

Excellent hotel , more than 4 star in our opinion. I agree with EssexLin1 early morning flights to Catania and then 2 1/2 hour transfer with Thompson is very tireing first day. Staff were all brilliant from desk to breakfast to bar, we were on B&B, our prefered method, but we did have a beautiful steak in the fourth floor... More

We first saw this hotel in the Thomsons brochure but didn't like their extremely early morning flights nor the two and a half hour transfer from Catania, when Palermo is only an hour away! We were told that this is because Thomson have only recently started to come here and their flights are set to Catania! As a result we... More

Great in terms of location ,quality,rooms and with added bonus of own section of beach with beach bar and food Ideally situated 10 min walk into town for many reasonably priced restaurants and cafe/bars The only minor downside is the 2hour transfer from the airport although very smooth from operators but well worth it once at hotel

Very clean and comfortable hotel. We were on bed and breakfast, but ate in the roof top restaurant on one occasion, and found it to be disastrous! Food the worst we had eaten and service unfriendly and were made to rush and feel we were an inconvenience. Having said that, the barman was exceptionally good and the reception staff friendly...

Just 80 rooms on the outskirts of Cefalu in Sicily, this is a modern hotel with a Chic feel about it. The whole place is spotless and it boasts some friendly staff, along with the approachability of the owners, who are often in the American bar on an evening. We opted for B&B in order that we could get around... More
