Having read previous reviews for this hotel we were a bit apprehensive about what we would be getting, but we were all pleasantly surprised. The hotel is a family run business and the staff are all very friendly, including Baru the hotel dog. The rooms are very clean, tidy and spacious with a good sized balcony. The water pressure was...

that was our first point to stay on this journey. we started in low season but was happy with everything - room size, cleanliness, see view balcony and breakfast. by fact hotel is opposite from rock and city and that's quite place to stay. All destinations in walking distance and with nice surroundings. Worth to mention - they serve warm... More

We chose this hotel, because we could get to it easily; it's on the hilltop before entering the old township when you travel from Milazzo. The room we were first shown had a tiny shower and I asked if they had another, so we took a room at the back, with slightly better shower. The bathroom was not well maintained,... More

The pluses with this hotel are its location and there is free parking right there. The lady who checked us in was fabulous - she provided us with maps and lots of information on the attractions in the area. However, our room was small and dark. It was clean, but there were loose knobs, one of the shower doors was... More

Al Pescatore was our only choice at a reasonable price, as every other place in Cefalu was full. However, the price of 60 euros for a double room proved to be somewhat unreasonable, as the room was very seedy, only superficially clean (meaning that we didn't really feel like touching anything in there), and just depressing as hell. The breakfast... More

A real alternative in busy Cefalu! Literally on the other side of the rock, near the tourist harbour, quiet, good bed, great view to the rock from the rooms at the back, car park! Very friendly hotel run by a family. The beautiful walk to town is along the coast and takes 15 min. Irene and Nik from Switzerland

After staying at several other hotels during my recent visit to Italy, I found Al Pescatore Hotel in Cefalu to be my VERY best experience, even compared to several much more expensive hotels. Al Pescatore was immaculately clean, very modern and totally comfortable and quiet with an awesome view of the Mediterranean. The location is great, an easy walk to... More

The hotel was extremely noisy and we had a disgusting balcony view over the back which stunk of sewage. It reminded us of a hospital of some sort. The breakfast was revolting. Dont bother , stay elsewhere! the only thing that was a plus was the location.

When we got into Cefalu on a Friday night, all of the beachfront hotels were booked...most of which were 120 Euros / night. As we drove out of town, spotted the sign for Al Pescatore. It's only 2km away from the centro and they had rooms at 75 euros which overlooked the marina from the balcony. We stayed two nights.... More

We only spent one night there, but were quite pleased with the hotel. The room was decent sized and had an ok bathroom as well. The furniture was old, but the room looked freshly painted and it was all clean. We enjoyed having a room towards the back since we got a good sized terrace to ourselves. It had a... More
