First thing I'd comment on is how you expect to utilise the Hotel. We tend to wander and explore and the hotel is essentially a place to rest between 'adventures'. To this end the hotel was ideal,the room we had was nice, with a great view of Cefalu, serviced immaculately and the hotel food (we paid half board) was very... More

This was the second time we were traveling to Cefalú. The hotel we liked was fully booked, so we selected the Santa Lucia e le Sabbie d'Oro, due to the descrptions on different network sites. It was a huge disappointment: there was only one person al the check-in counter (which was also check-out, information, and concierge desk), who was not... More

Lovely hotel in a great location approx 1 mile from Cefalu. Hotel is nothing to look at from the front, but once inside, the pool, dining area and beach are very good. Great walk along the seafront from the hotel to Cefalu, (the main town) which is a beautiful place to visit with lots to see and do. The hotel... More

This is very nice, clean, comfortable and pleasant hotel. Food was tasty. Staff was very polite, attentive and helpful especially receptionist named Giuseppe. Beach is quite good, although the bar on the beach is missing. Cefalu is a beautiful old town with lots to offer by way of history, shops and cafes. I enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend...

Stayed 10 days in Santa Lucia with my friends who have been there last year. They were a bit worried I would not be impressed with the hotel , knowing my preference to stay at hotels highly ranked by Trip Advisor reviewers. However, I was allocated a lovely room in the so called "first building", which appears to be the... More

Looking at the pictures it seems like a really nice hotel, but reality was different. Our room was quite nicely decorated and with a sea view. However the rest was not great at all. Walls were not sound proof at all and you can hear every sound from the corridor and the rooms next door. Quality of food and selection... More
