“Good choice, great location, loved Cefalu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights after leaving Palermo. We took the train and then walked down to the hotel (an easy 5-10 minutes downhill from the station)
Friendly, helpful staff and lovely modern apartment/room with a fantastic view to the 'rock' and side view to the sea/beach.
We loved Cefalu particularly in the evenings when the day trippers leave and you can wander the narrow streets of the old town.
There are some great restaurants, brilliant gelato and don't miss a climb to the top of the 'rock' We spent a lovely morning taking our time walking up from the hotel through the town and then following the steps and paths until we reached the top. You get fantastic views down over the town, the cathedral and the beach and a real sense of history.
Cefalu is probably very busy in high season but I'm really glad we stopped off there on our mini tour and the Astro was a perfect modern contrast to the old town of Cefalu. Free wifi and a decent breakfast all added to our view that the Astro represented good value for money.
Happy to recommend and would go back to Cefalu and the Astro Suite tomorrow if we could.

Room Tip: Sea view or a view of the 'rock'

We made a late booking, and of course did not get one of the better rooms overlooking the sea, but our accommodation was excellent. Clean, well appointed, quiet and comfortable. We had a sort of sideways view of the sea from our terrace, a nice place to eat our own picnic lunch. The hotel and rooms are new, attractive, spacious and bright.

The staff at the hotel were all extremely helpful and friendly. They were most accommodating about allowing us to leave the car there after we checked out but had time to spend in Cefalu before we flew home.

The breakfast was excellent, eaten on the hotel patio (our choice) or indoors.

The position of the hotel is ideal, across the road from the beach, and a short walk to the historic city centre.

Room Tip: Apparently rooms are allocated on a first come basis, so book early and ask for one on the second fl...

We had a lovely suite with a balcony overlooking the town and beach - all white and blue decor. The old town is only a few minutes along the promenade. There was a supermarket just round the corner so we ate at home on the balcony one night. The only problem was being woken at 5am by a couple of machines cleaning the beach!

Room Tip: Treat yourself to a seaview suite

Wow ! This is how every holiday location should be ! The hotel is brilliantly designed and maintained with an amazing location right on the prom , but within a short walk of the Old Town and its many attractions. Our room( 109 ) was generously sized and well equipped and sea/town views from the room balcony were amazing . The hotel staff , without exception , were friendly , efficient , thoroughly professional in every way and couldn't do enough to help us . Breakfast was, of course , superb! Definitely one of the best and most comfortable hotels we have stayed in and we intend coming back !

Room Tip: Room on higher floor facing the pool and sea . Our room (109) was just perfect !

Very nice location, in front of the sea. Our bedroom was a small apartment with full equiped kitchen. With a small terrace with sea and city views (awesome). The breakfast was very nice. Just 10 minutes walking to city center. Very new and clean.

The Astro Suites is a new hotel along the seafront within easy walking distance of the old town of Cefalu. The hotel wasn't yet on the navigator, which directed to the nearby Astro Theater, but the property is prominent and easy to find once on the beach road. There is an underground parking garage, opened from the desk, and elevators between garage, lobby, and rooms that make it accessible throughout. The desk staff is friendly and helpful; check-in was quick and there were good recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing.

The upgraded room is expansive: two main rooms connected by a hallway with an adjacent bathroom. The living room has a kitchen and dining area, sofa and storage areas: there is a large refrigerator, sink, microwave, and range. Basic dishes and cutlery are provided. The bedroom, with balcony, is large, with a firm bed and good storage, television with local and cable channels, and free wifi. The bathroom is clean and has a large shower with adequate pressure and hot water.

Breakfast is served as a light buffet in a dining area ff the lobby: they serve breads and cereals, juices and coffee, fruits and yogurt. There is an outdoor pool and a game room adjacent to the lobby. Suitable for families or couples, the hotel is an excellent base for exploring the town and the surrounding region.

Room Tip: If you are staying for several days, upgrade to a suite with a view.

When the hotel we chose was suddenly closed we were switched to this hotel and it was terrific. It is modern, on the beach and the rooms are suites with a kitchenette. The walk to Cefalu is short and seemed safe at any hour. There is a terrific grocery store a block away. We spent Christmas Eve here and were able to buy groceries and cook a simple but lovely dinner. The kitchenette is not extensively stocked with pots and pans but it had what I needed to cook and serve antipasti, pasta and salad for 4. We saved quite a bit by buying water and other lunch foods at the grocery store as well as wonderful nuts, torrone and other goodies to bring home as gifts. The staff were lovely and anxious to please. The breakfast was ample and fresh and good. The rooms were clean and had excellent WIFI connections. The parking is indoors under the hotel and hence easy and safe. It is very modern in decor so if you are looking to extend the "centro storico" feel - this is the wrong hotel. But if you want friendly wonderful staff and all the comforts this is the one. We stayed 6 nights and would happily return!

Room Tip: I would guess that in season the lower rooms would be quite noisy. But in December it was fairly qui...
