My wife and i booked the calanica resort as the last part of our honeymoon. Tonights our last night unfortunately. (room 26). What a great place!!! The view is amazing. Rooms good, when lying in bed all you can hear is the sea. Staff were cheerful and helpful. Overall 5 out of 5

We chose this hotel having splashed out on the top hotel in Agrigento for 2 nights and before that enjoyed a City stay in Palerno, so seaside Cefalu was perfect for our last 4 nights of 9 and so pretty. We weren't disappointed with Calanica by any means, the little huts are surprisingly spacious and modern and well kitted out... More

We stayed in a modern bungalow with beautiful views over the sea. We slept very well and had a pleasant stay. Breakfast was very good with fresh delicious orange juice. Staff was friendly and service minded. They let us borrow bikes to get to the closest store. The facility was nice and had a little private beach with a beach... More

We only visited the town is cefalu for a couple of nights, but we absolutely loved it! Staff was really kind. Sea view is unbelievable!!! It's a true resort only a couple of minutes from town. We had a good swim in the clear sea waters (even in October!) And beside the stones instead of sand (of course not controlled... More

We were there earlier this year, April... Loved that our suite is facing the sea. Felt very relaxed sitting outside the suite, listening to the waves and feeling the cool wind caressing my face. Serenity. Great services at front desk as well as the restaurant.

I have been to Calanica last June. We arrived by plane in Palermo and then we went to Cefalù by train. Cefalù is the city where there is the residence. If you want to get to the city, the easiest way is to take the train from Palermo, it only takes 50 minutes and the ticket is pretty cheap; it... More

We spent two weeks in the Hotel Calanica in August 2014. It is excellent place for people who are looking for peace, silence and total relax. We recommend the stay in the hotel for people who want to enjoy real, salty, clean and blue sea. It is ideal for relax and escape from modern, rush city life. We enjoyed our... More

We booked this for 5 nights as a wind down location following travels around Italy. As it was our anniversary, which we advised them of, we were given a bungalow in a prime location fully facing the sea.They also sent a bottle of bubbly to our room. We had a junior suite, very modern but offering everything you needed. The... More

As with so many hotels in Sicily this one is difficult to find. After a sightseeing tour around the narrow streets of Cefalu we had to talked in to the hotel by the reception staff. The title of hotel is slightly misleading in that there are a number of bungalows set into the hillside offering spectacular views of the bay... More

Domenico was very helpful in planning our trip. He answered emails promptly and courteously even though I probably got a little anal at times. I over engineer everything. Salvatore was always at the ready for anything we needed. Sara and Mauro were equally helpful at the restaurant. The food was good and the service was excellent. We dumped most of... More
