We stayed for our honeymoon, the staff were very welcoming and we were kindly given free presco to celebrate. We were very touched by the hotels welcome as we arrived. The hotel is very good value for money with reasonably priced food and drink. The themed evenings were great fun and added atmosphere to our evenings. We loved the BBQ... More

Fabulous small family run hotel. Is friendly, hospitable and food is lovely. Great themed evenings, Scicilian traditional, candle lit dinner. Really liked it. Off the main drag so no crowds as in the main street further along the coast. Only downsides, wi-fi is really limited and intermittent. Pool seems to occasionally be used by random locals who wander in and... More

Spent 5 nights and this lovely little hotel as part of our trip around Sicily. The hotel is in a nice location about 15 minutes walk along the seafront to Cefalu. It's directly across the road from the beach and we had some lovely sunrise/sunset views from our seafront balcony. There is a nice pool area and also a small... More

I stayed in a first floor room with a sea view. It was nice to watch the sunset from the balcony. The balcony has glass sides which allow you to see the view while lying in bed but this does retain the heat which doesn't allow much of a cool breeze. The breakfast is plentiful with bacon and fried eggs... More

We stayed here for one night as part of a school trip. We shared a room between four people. Our room was really big and we had plenty of space. The rooms have cupboards, mini fridges, tvs, etc. and ours had a small balcony (enough space on it for a chair and a mini clothesline.) The room was very clean... More
