We stayed in May 2015 and was really impressed by the hotel & its location, which is only 5 min walk from the old town with the fine sandy beach across the road. Cleanliness was outstanding and the staff very friendly. The room was a nice size with a sea view overlooking the pool. Breakfast was very good, both cooked... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks in Sept 14 and had a lovely time. The hotel was well located near the beach and only a few mins walk to the centre of Cefalu. We stayed on B&B and couldn't fault the food, lots of choice and well presented - we were also able to sit outside each day. The room... More

it is a very modern hotel, not my regular cup of tea, but a very nice hotel indeed. As we went off season they were nice enough to upgrade us to a junior suite which was huge, with wooden floors, a very nice bathroom with shower and separate tub, an amazing view of the sea and Cefalù itself. It also... More

We have been visiting this hotel since it opened and have never been disappointed. The owners, Mauro and Vitoria, take pride in making sure their guests are happy and the staff carries out their...

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
