We stayed at Baia del Capitano for 2 weeks as part of a package holiday. Never again. On the positive side it is quiet, and our room (I suspect it was one of the better ones) had a nice balcony overlooking the pool, but I struggle to find anything else good to say about it. The room was very dated... More

We enjoyed a weeks stay in early October with good friends. Weather was sunny on four of the days and very little rain on the others. The location of the hotel was in a small residential area but this added to the peace and serenity of our stay. We found the food, restaurant and all of it's staff spot on... More

An excellent hotel overall although it is a little way out from Cefalu (bus into town costs three euros approx). The buses also stop around 18.30 hours so a taxi to return costs 15/20 euro depending on time you return. Hotel facilities are decent with small poolside bar and friendly staff. The room we had was a good size with... More

We've just returned from a stay at the Baia del Capitano and can only sing its praises. I would agree with everything that others have positively mentioned. It is a nice hotel, it is quiet and it is 5 km. outside Cefalu. The majority of guests at the hotel while we were there were German and French. There were a... More

24 hours reception, friendly staff. Good service. Sandy beach 500 m from the hotel, beach shuttle available upon request. Tuesday and Friday night concerts till midnight. Very high audibility. It might be that for dinner the food is prepared in advance, it feels like heated. Though tasty. The range of courses rather abundant. The use of fridge at the hotel... More

First off, we knew nothing of this hotel before seeing the place as me and my friends did not bother to book beforehand (a gamble I know). We just did some asking around from other tourists and some locals in the area the day we arrived and a couple of people mentioned this same place, so we thought, why not?... More

Our family of four (2kids of 9&3 years old) stayed at this hotel in August 2013. The room was fine, swimming pool clean, pleasant pool bar with good selection of music. Beautiful rocky beach (not for children); though sandy beach is 15-20 minutes walking distance under the hot sun. The beach is crowded and quite dirty. Surprisingly personnel spoke English... More

Dear Guest, We think that it’s better to have the opportunity to choose from 2 different types of beach and actually we also offer to our guests a lift to the beach with our “calessino” ( little car), so it’s not necessary to walk under the hot sun if you don’t want. August is high season in Sicily so unfortunately... More

We were a little shocked when we first realised quite how far from Cefalu itself the hotel was. However the peace and quiet was incredibly relaxing. It had far more of a boutique feel than we expected. The private beach area was really nice for the children and getting a lift down with the hotel beach tuk tuk was good... More

My husband and I just spent 3 nights at this hotel, the experience overall was good. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, we particularly appreciated their service when they helped us locate the travel documentation which we had left in the first room they allocated us (see below). The hotel is in a residential area with no shops... More
