The staff here went out of their way to help and were very friendly. The food was excellent a choice of a meat or fish set menu every evening. We had pianist and folk group after dinner on two evenings. The view towards La Rocca from the balcony was wonderful. Free use of the beach loungers, umbrellas and towels. A...

Buyer beware. Firstly,the staff are helpful and very friendly. Now for the hotel. Pool and public areas are fine,but what really lets this hotel down are the rooms and the food. Firstly the rooms.If you chose your room from the photo in the brochure it may not be the room you get.Some of the rooms are nothing like the picture,...

We went to Tourist Hotel in September and found everything really good. The food was plentiful and suited both veggie and meat eater. The pool was very deep but really nice to swim in or just as good to just have refreshing dunks in. The only drawback is the 10 Euros charge each way for a taxi whether just over...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Dear Lucy, thank you for your review, we are very glad to know that you enjoyed and appreciated your holiday. Our Sicilian Dinner is our strong point!

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...
