My wife and I stayed here as part of a group travel to Cefalu. The hotel is located a good 10-15 minutes walk from the "old town" with not that many restaurants or bars close by. The hotel has a restaurant which we tried one night for their "Sicilian buffé". It was good and can be recommended if you want... More

Spent a week here on B&B basis, room was large, airy and looked fairly recently decorated, bathroom was good and clean. Staff at reception provided a very warm welcome, bar staff were good and the breakfast lady very cheerful each time we visited. The pool area is excellent with a large, deep pool, lots of sunloungers, shade and clean toilets... More

It gets five stars due to the value for money for a great budget hotel. This hotel was £200 cheaper than our other option. The food is excellent. If you stay half board you are offered two options each night - meat or fish! Sound poor but then comes 4 courses - different each night. we arrived too late on... More

We stayed for three nights and it was more than enough. We've stayed in Cefalu on many occasions but it was our first time staying in this particular area. I much prefer the marina area. The rooms are very very basic but clean. The pool area is nice but our swimming clothes turned yellow because of the chlorine in the... More

We had a lovely holiday in Cefalu - we were out of the main season and everything was starting to gear up for the summer season. We loved being away from the town & enjoyed the walk to the numerous bars & restaurants. Hotel rooms are on the basic side but are clean & have everything you need including a... More

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

Just spent 4 weeks at this hotel. Had a lovely time. Paid a supplement to have a sea facing room on the front. Our room was cleaned every day. We had air con, fridge etc. I did have to take out the lamp plug to charge our phones but that was no bother as it seems for some people. We... 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
