My partner and I were thrilled when we saw the incredible terrace overlooking the sea, but even more thrilled when we discovered we'd been placed in the apartment at the top of the building.. it was huge! We had a giant panoramic window off of our living room, and separate balcony at the back off of the bedroom over looking... More

Perfect location in heart of Cefalu, just few steps from the beachfront. Romantic stay in the most romantic town ever! Breakfast in the neighboring bar was fair. Love to go back anytime! Beata&Gabor, Hungary

Extremely difficult to find with parking some distance away. Not for the faint hearted! On the plus side, the views from the terrace are breathtakingly beautiful (with a few wires/ cables draped around) and, once you know where you are, it's easy to drive in and out of the town. Also, the b and b has a very good cleaning... More

the location is excellent with a large shared deck overlooking the water. it is cash only (no matter what the site says) with a manager that occasionally shows up. Rooms are clean and decorated well - most BB at this price range normally look like a flea market special. it is a 3-4 flight walk up to the room and... More

The plus point is that it is a good location in a fantastic town. Not expensive. Lack of security was a bit unnerving. The accommodation provider phoned us to ask what time we were arriving (early evening) and said he would leave the key in the room door for us when we arrived. This was clearly a common arrangement. In... More

We stayed here at the end of September and were pleasantly surprised. I'd read some of the reviews before booking, citing issues with the breakfast and parking - its true, there is no parking very nearby, but there is free parking not far (a 10 minute walk away) and if you take the short cut back into town there is...

The dolce vita is nicely located in the old town of Cefalu. The street outside is rather trafficked, so be careful, especially if u are traveling with children. First of all, the Dolce Vita has quite a few stairs before u get to the rooms , so it might not be the best alternative if traveling with children (especially with... More

Nothing like the discription on booking.com. Yes, there is a terrace overlooking the sea. But that is it. No lovely cosy family-run B&B. The atmosphere was cold, no service what so ever. Giovanni was ok, the other guy, that worked the morningshift, an absolute scumbag. "Yeah, no water in the room, i know. Not my problem". And 1 second later... More
