We stayed here for a short relaxing holiday of a week. The rooms are big enough - we wouldn't want to stay there for a too long time if it is raining. The breakfast was great! The staff is very friendly and you can use bicycles to explore the surrounding area *cefalu) for free. Do not expect to be able... More

This is the most interesting hotel I have had to write a review about as it is hard to rate. The difficulty is perhaps around expectations. Firstly, the place is hard to find since neither the address nor name of the hotel was on our GPS, however, once we called the property, they were very helpful in guiding us to... More

We stayed two weeks at Calanica in June - july and we loved it! In short: If you enjoy peace and quiet, excellent and friendly service, wonderful views and crystal clear water this is the place for you! The bungalow was like a small apartment, it had everything you needed. Stylish design and very clean! We just loved sitting on... More

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
