Our room was cleaned every day, the food was fabulous and the staff friendly and helpful. The pool area is clean and well maintained with some light entertainment offered for guests. The hotel's own beach is down the steps which has sun beds and a lovely view into the ocean. There is a coffee shop/patisserie attached to the hotel where... More

You get what you pay for. It's a 3 star hotel so I couldn't complain. It was really nice stay. Our room was rather small but clean and comfotable. The food was very good. The location is great. It's just 15-20 min walk to Cefalu.

My wife and I stayed at Le Sabbie d'Oro for 5 nights half board from 2nd October 2013. The room and food were most acceptable for the price we paid. The pool was clean and good for a proper swim with plenty of sun beds.It was a pleasant walk into Cefalu along the promenade and the private beach was well... More

We went to this hotel late in September on a low budget holiday.Rooms were small but very clean with regular room service. Some people were affected by noise from the Blue Bar but it did close at midnight and it was only the front rooms in one of the three accommodation blocks. Pool was lovely and beach even better. Food... More

Stayed there 11-18 october. Food was awful and frequent, especially in the morning. One night there were potato dumplings, which were non-eatable. Many people send their untouched plate back to the kitchen.

Location of Hotel and serviss is fine, but for October could be more enterteiments in the evenings. If there are some complainings about noise from rooms close to Bar, maybe it worth to decide whom to offer those rooms. 15 - 20 min walk to Cefalu Old Town. WC needed close to the Beach otherwise it all smells like WC.... More

Well I can honestly say this was by far the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. We arrived at about 9 in the evening, at reception they just took our passports and gave us our room number, no welcome no other instructions about availability of a late dinner. thankfully the stand in for our rep told us that a...
