We spent four nights at La Plumeria at the end of September. The hotel is ideally located in the Centro Storico and is only a 5 minute walk to the beach. Due to this location, it is not advisable to drive to the hotel, even to drop off or load luggage. Rather, make sure to get detailed directions to the hotel's remote parking lot and call the hotel to send its van to meet you there. The parking lot is an easy 10 minute walk from the hotel so, once the baggage is dealt with, your car is easily accessible.
The facility has been recently renovated and both the common areas and the rooms are attractive, immaculately clean, comfortable and very functional. We had a large bedroom, which oddly had two bathrooms and a private balcony overlooking the courtyard. We found the breakfast buffet to be more than adequate and typical of those provided at Italian hotels in La Plumeria's price range.
The most notable attribute of La Plumeria is the quality of its staff. Everyone, including the receptionists, wait staff, cleaning staff and Guiseppe, the van driver, was exceptionally friendly, courteous and helpful. We did not hesitate to seek their advice regarding restaurants, activities and directions. The staff was unfailingly happy to help us and their recommendations were always spot on.
If we return to Cefalu' we will undoubtedly again stay at La Plumeria.
