At first, there is no hotel beach, only a part of a local (10 minutes away) average and very crowded beach, with 3 rows of dense packed sun beds and umbrellas, without space to pass between. No WiFi, excepts a poor network around the pool. An average indoor breakfast in spite of beautiful garden with non-drinkable espresso.

Really great venue, superb rooms, space, cleanliness and service. Outdoor dinner in an Olive garden, private beach space within 10 minutes walk. Very good breakfast buffet with fresh oranges to squash. Great food do not miss the "Sicilian evening" mid week with superb dinner. Staff very nice and overly helpful for any information or extra need. Special feature for tourists... More

Fabulous hotel, great food, spotlessly clean bedrooms and public areas. The hotel itself is warm, cosy and welcoming. Every need was catered for and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel has a shuttle service to the beach and town centre, which was very useful. Can't recommend highly enough and many thanks to Antonio and his team for making our... More

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
