We just had a lovely couple of days there. The rooms and interior were gorgeous. The bars and restaurants excellent. The staff was very friendly. We would highly recommend this hotel to friends and family.

We booked this hotel in a bit of a hurry and made the mistake of reading the reviews afterwards. These reviews made us regret our decision and to be nervous what about what awaited us when we arrived at the hotel. However we pulled up and were happily surprised. The hotel grounds are very nice and used the free parking... More

We were booked into this hotel by our travel company, having had to leave our villa early because of wildfires around Cefalu. The hotel grounds are very pleasant and the entrance lobby impressive. The pool area is also very well laid out and our room was spacious and clean. The cocktail bar on the terrace is a relaxing place to... More

A very opulent hotel with interesting decor. Clean rooms, well furnished with balconies that are rather overgrown so do not provide a view. The staff are pleasant ,especially the pool staff who were good humoured and polite and the porters. However, I would not advise staying here if you have an early flight, unless you check first to see if... More

Hotel itself looks generally good until you step into your room Very Moldy smelling outdated rooms, ridiculously small bathroom with shower build it somehow in a minuscule bathtub; no view from the room; mediocre bed. Plus: decent swimming pool, bar and breakfast area (despite breakfast is not exceptional both in quality and quantity) Close to airport On the beach

Some visitor comments on TripAdvisor amaze me, unless they are reviews written by the local competition! This hotel is the friendliest I've encountered, great room, food and blissful pool. It's not in the swankiest part of town, but that adds to the fun. The staff are so hospitable, indicative of all Sicilians. Loved it. Nicki and Tim

We stayed at this hotel a few weeks ago. It was close to the airport which was convenient for us. The room was average and the entire hotel looks like it needs repainting and updating, but it's clean and the restaurant was excellent. The Staff were friendly and generally it was good value for money accomodation.
