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

These little bungalows were a little pricey, but we were only there for two nights during the shoulder season and decided to splurge. What romantic little places! You feel you are in your own little tiki hut, but it has all the trimmings of a high quality hotel inside. Walking out the door in the morning, you are immediately met... More

My husband and I spent a long weekend in Cefalu and we couldn't have been happier with our stay at Calanica. Once we checked, someone took our bags [via moped] to our bungalow for us. It was a bit of a walk from the parking lot to the bungalows, but that is the price you pay for their amazing views.... More

Our vacation in Calanica in mid of August 2013, was just great, two weeks in Paradise…no rush, no stress, no driving, no sightseeing…just couple of nice guests, sea view like from lighthouse, clean and blue sea and blue sky, good sleep and fantastic Sicilian food, topped by sincere and friendly Sicilian people in the hotel…. It was difficult to leave... More
