Great hotel. Contemporary design. Well maintained and with a calm and civilised ambience. Meticulously clean. Lovely staff in hotel and on hotel beach. Good breakfast and dinner in restaurant. All seven of us enjoyed our week's stay. Magnifico. Grazie.

We stayed here during the busiest time in mid August. Our rep told us that the hotel was completely full, but that didn't impact on the brilliant service we received. The location is superb - a 10 minute walk to Cefalu town centre and a private beach just across the road. As the beach belonged to the hotel, we were... More

We returned home from our second visit at the Cefalu sea palace hotel on Sunday 27th July. Everything was as we remembered from last year. The hotel was spotless throughout and all the staff without exception were all very friendly. We made an error with our booking and subsequently were not allocated a room we were hoping for. In the... More

My partner & I spent two weeks at the hotel in July. This hotel is excellent, it's facilities are excellent, it is spotlessly clean, breakfast food was as you'd expect with a good selection. While the front of house staff may get all the plaudits, I would to give a special thanks to the restaurant staff and the maids who... More

My wife and I returned to the Cefalù Sea Palace hotel, where we love to be. It is a very good hotel, very well situated with a private beach and pool area. Everybody in the staff are extremely friendly and everyone has a smile and a greeting ready at hand. The rooms are clean and fresh, the people in the... More

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
