It is always difficult when writing a TA review to decide if it can be contextual i.e. make allowances for where the hotel / restaurant is. You would not think this would be an issue in Italy but the fact is that Italy is having a hard time, Southern Italy an even harder one and Sicily is below even that.... More

The hotel has an excellent location within easy walking distance to the old town and with the promenade and sandy beach just across the road from reception. Our room was spacious with a good view across the pool area to the sea. The room and the public areas were kept immaculately clean. The staff at reception, beach cafe and lounge/pool... More

We think this hotel is up to 4 star standard. Reception staff were helpful and courteous, room was large and well appointed with a sea view and breakfast (included) was fine with both hot and cold buffet selections. The beach is immediately over the road and hotel services on the beach included chairs, beach umbrellas as well as bar and... More

October 2014. The hotel is nice and is in a good position not far from the old town of Cefalu. We stayed initially on a half board basis expecting to have good food from a four star hotel. The food at dinner was awful, we ate two nights there to see if there was any improvement, the second night was... More

Fantastic hotel, very clean and the staff were both friendly and helpful. It is excellently located with a private part of the sandy beach to the front and the town around 10-15 minutes walk away. The rooms were large, airy and comfortable with a quiet and efficient air-con. The free use of a safe and beach towels were a small... More

We chose this hotel having already visited Cefalu last year when we stayed in the Hotel Tourist. Having had a bad experience there we thought the Sea Palace looked much better and decided to give it a go. Well we couldn't have been more wrong. What at first sight looks like a top class 4* Hotel reveals itself to be... More

We were booked into a garden view room but were given a so-called upgrade to a sea-view. However, although we could see a bit of sea, the main view was a local car park and footpath to the town, which made sitting out on the balcony unpleasant as the car park and footpath were close and both busy with people...

This is a fabulous hotel about 10 minutes walk from Cefalu town centre. The hotel is lovely. Everywhere is spotless and our room was pristine with bedding and towels changed every other day. There is no wifi in the room but free in reception. However, we found we could receive a wifi signal in our room which was quite a... More
