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.

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...

HOTEL ROOM AND BATHROOM: room dated but big. Double bed arranged after arrival and requesting at the reception. Found out that what we call 'double bed' Italians mean 'matrimonial bed'. You need to ask for 'matrimonial' if you do not want to have two single beds. That was sorted out the next morning. ROOM (on the 6th floor, facing the... More

We read the existing reviews on TA before booking, and now we've stayed there, have to say some of the criticisms are unfair. Given that prices in Cefalu are not cheap, we did not feel this hotel was out of line on value. (We also had an extra good deal by booking through Thomas Cook - much less than any... More

Our 8-day holiday in Sicily was from 16th to 23rd September 2013. Bit of a con really as first day entailed setting off from home at 0930 and travelling to Exeter Airport which is close to our home, but with the travelling and the faffing experienced at Exeter Airport we did not arrive at this Hotel in Cefalu until 2330...
