We stayed there for a few days and I wish that we stayed there more. The room was nice and large with a baloney which I loved. You could see the ocean and it was so beautiful. The place is very clean and the staff was great. The breakfast was great wonderful it was outside and the weather was beautiful.... More

It was our 2nd stay at Riva del Sole, we liked it in 2012 and liked it now. It may not be the most modern of hotels but has all the facilities and comfort and it is clean. Staff are very correct and helpful. Private parking available. Wonderful location, 50 m from beach and 100 m from town centre. We... More

The registration area is not as large and crisp as shown in the online photo, but it was still nice. Great location for visiting the historic area of Cefalu; right on the edge of the old town area. Another major plus is that there is a parking area next to the hotel, but it is small and I suspect that... More

My wife and I (both in our late 50s), stayed here for several nights at the end of September 2014. The hotel's location is excellent, directly facing the sea. The rooms at the back of the hotel, though, are quieter, so we opted for one of those. Our room was a very good size, on the dark side but everything... More

Trying to find something positive is really difficult, however to balance the rest of this review I can say that the staff do try to make an effort!! A sea view seemed like the right choice initially, even though it was more expensive however do not expect to get any sleep. The constant noise at all times of day and... More

We stayed at this beachfront hotel an extra night as we loved the place. The hotel was clean and staff very friendly. My last day I forgot some valuables in my room after we checked out. I returned later to find that housekeeping handed them in to the front desk and they were in an envelope with my name on... More

I have just concluded a three day visit to this hotel with my wife. At first blush the hotel, which is across the street from the beach, seems typical "three star". The first thing you learn as a guest is that the A/C does not function very well - and the hotel management shuts is down for several hours during... More

This is the worst hotel from all my life. Small room, noisy, no pool, poor breakfast. And a lot of money. Based on booking policy, we cancel the second night but hotel manager charge me for both night's. I respect their policy but they don't. Pay one more night 260 EUR and leave it. Also, I call several times to... More

This hotel is very convenient for access to the lungomare and the sea. Its style is strikingly modernistic, perhaps Art Deco, and is kept clean and gleaming. Value is decent. It is a bit of a walk to the cathedral, but the sea is extremely close. Breakfast is nourishing and varied.

First impression of this hotel was the management who could learn a lot of lessons from their staff who were absolutely excellent! Especially Giovanni and Arturo. Our room (54) was fantastic, great balcony overlooking the ocean and big. Although we are not used to the half board rate the restaurant was excellent. Breakfast was simple but lovely coffee and in... More
