    A terrific stay in a quaint second-floor inn directly overlooking the ocean. Fantastic views. Antonio very fair; terrific guy. Great seafood restaurant just next door. The hike up the mountain overlooking the town is a highlight.

    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.

    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).

    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
