The B&B has a wonderful view from the rooftop, it is in a great location, the staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean. We did think the B&B was a bit overpriced, but it could just be Cefalu in general. The bed and pillows were not the most comfortable. But we enjoyed our stay at Dolce Vita.

This B&B has some beautiful rooms at seaside and they'll advertise with it. We made a reservation far in advance, but unluckily we got a room at the streetside. The balcony was above a place were, in the evening, the local bars and restaurants collect garbage and empty bottles until midnight, with a lot of noise. Early in the morning... More

In Summer Cefalu' is of course full of turists everywhere and we understand that a room with street view could be noisy, but not always, because each room has double glasses... All the customers wish like to have see view rooms but unfortunately it is not possible, so we give them usually if only they are avaible or on request... More

We stayed in cefalu for only 2 days but it was a very pleasant experience. Hotel is located very nice and has a cosy terrace above the sea. Breakfast was included in price (coffee, croissant and juice in the cafe on duomo square).

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

it is a 800 century build on historic center and not an hotel. All the customers wish like to have see view rooms but unfortunately it is not possible, so we give them usually if only they are avaible or on request at the moment when a customer do his booking.

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
