We had intended to rent a house near Cefalu, but on arrival found that it was not close to its Internet description and photos (hot and dirty with a stray cat guarding it). We left quickly but now needed accommodations for the remaining four days of vacation before returning home. We learned of Alberi Del Paradiso on TripAdvisor and called. They had availability, but we would not reserve until we saw the rooms. We arrived we were greeted enthusiastically by the front desk staff on duty, Benedict and Rosie. They were great and they were helpful. We were shown the needed two rooms, which were spotless. They offered the deal that could not be refused and we stayed. And we are glad we did. What a contrast to the hotel we stayed at in Taormina! This is an excellent hotel with extremely comfortable rooms, competent staff, great restaurant and bar. The staff could not do enough and they couldn't do it fast enough. When we return to Cefalu, this is the place we will go. This hotel far exceeded our expectations.
