“Wonderful food and wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Before arriving at the Alberi del Paradiso, but after having booked, I read the reviews on Tripadvisor with some trepidation. I can only say that some of the other reviewers were either staying in a different hotel or had wrongly chosen! We had 2 very happy weeks at the end of September this year - the food was excellent - we ate out once or twice but preferred to eat in as it good value as well as well presented local cuisine. The spotless rooms were not over large but the beds were comfortable ( whatever anybody else says) and how come nobody has mentioned the fine quality Frette sheets. The pool is large,for the size of the hotel, and when we were there mostly quiet as other guests were out sightseeing or rock climbing, There were plenty of sun beds in sun or shade - shade needed sometimes as it was very hot. All the staff were lovely, and very helpful. We will come again to the delightful hotel. Jane Z

Room Tip: Cheaper rooms get morning sun and over entrance and drive, others afternoon sun.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

The hotel is situated on the outskirts of the town on a hill overlooking the old town and sea with distant views of the Aolian Islands. This family run hotel is modern clean and very comfortable. There are a multitude of little terraces with tables and chairs giving you plenty of privacy if you want it. The well kept gardens meander along the hillside and there is an excellent swimming pool and close by is a childrens play area. The restaurant is as good as you will find anywhere in town. The hotel has an hourly shuttle service to the town which is "pedestrianised" . Would stay again.

Room Tip: Book a superior room on the top floor facing the town

We came by train to Cefalú and walked to the hotel. We spent almost a week in this hotel; it is clean, safe and calm. The staff was very friendly and almost everybody spoke English. Breakfast was okay. You can crush fresh apples to juice in machine. There were roasted and cooked eggs, bacon, fruits, yoghurt, muesli, bread, cheese, cold cuts and pastries. Anyhow we hoped some variability to breakfast, because it was almost same kind of every morning. You can order very good, fresh drinks in hotel´s bar on evening; the bartender was competent and friendly. Anyhow, drinks and food in the restaurang were a bit costly, we didn´t eat in the hotel´s restaurang. Tour to center is a bit hilly, but we didn`t mind about it. You can also get a free ride to the center or the beach until 18:00 pm, which is good. The hotel has small fitness room and pool. The pool area was cleaned every day. There are many trees in the hotels garden and unfortunately they shade a bit the pool area. If you stay here, take the room with balcony! If you have moist clothes after beach day, don´t they dry well in the room, where isn`t the balcony. All in all we liked this hotel.

This hotel is situated a 15 min walk uphill from Cefalu beaches and another 10mins to the old town. We arrived by train and walked 30min uphill with our bags which was tiring as the pedestrian short cut is not sign posted or on the maps. There is a free shuttle that runs every 2 hours until 6pm to/from a private area on the beach and to the town. We got the shuttle to the beach but always walked back in the evening up the pedestrian short cut to the hotel. The short cut is all steps up a steep hill. The mountain views are lovely and the pool is surrounded by trees. There are only a few sun loungers that are directly in sunlight however so not ideal for sunbathing. We ended up going to the beach to sun bathe as all sun loungers in the sun were taken early in the morning. Breakfast in the hotel is fabulous, the tables are on a terrace and the pastries are divine! They have an orange juice machine with baskets of oranges so you can make your own fresh orange juice- this was a really nice touch. All the staff were lovely and helpful. The bar is really nicely decorated and comfortable. The cocktails in the bar were really good quality and we felt worth the 8euro price. We did not eat in the restaurant but the piano music in the evening was nice which could be heard in the bar. Our room was small but comfortable, no balcony but we got a really good last minute deal so did not mind! The hotel is surrounded by trees so there are mosquitoes - even a few in our room! Overall we had a really relaxing stay in this hotel and would recommend it.

Signs for this hotel are small and the road smaller. It is up a steep hill at the entrance to the town, about 10 minutes walking down and 20 minutes up if you visit the main shopping area. Town is very interesting and bustling. Hotel has free shuttle to and from centre and beach area and cab prices are reasonable. Hotel is modern with pleasant pool area - unheated. Food was good but many restaurants in town make eating out preferable.
Wi-Fi is free.

Stay in the junior suite! Good recommendation for this room/home at a perfect location. Nice staff, very good breakfast, nice restaurant and Cefalu is a very nice town to stay for a few days. So the name says it all: paradiso!
