“Apartment suites by the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

The Astro Suites is a new hotel along the seafront within easy walking distance of the old town of Cefalu. The hotel wasn't yet on the navigator, which directed to the nearby Astro Theater, but the property is prominent and easy to find once on the beach road. There is an underground parking garage, opened from the desk, and elevators between garage, lobby, and rooms that make it accessible throughout. The desk staff is friendly and helpful; check-in was quick and there were good recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing.

The upgraded room is expansive: two main rooms connected by a hallway with an adjacent bathroom. The living room has a kitchen and dining area, sofa and storage areas: there is a large refrigerator, sink, microwave, and range. Basic dishes and cutlery are provided. The bedroom, with balcony, is large, with a firm bed and good storage, television with local and cable channels, and free wifi. The bathroom is clean and has a large shower with adequate pressure and hot water.

Breakfast is served as a light buffet in a dining area ff the lobby: they serve breads and cereals, juices and coffee, fruits and yogurt. There is an outdoor pool and a game room adjacent to the lobby. Suitable for families or couples, the hotel is an excellent base for exploring the town and the surrounding region.

Room Tip: If you are staying for several days, upgrade to a suite with a view.

When the hotel we chose was suddenly closed we were switched to this hotel and it was terrific. It is modern, on the beach and the rooms are suites with a kitchenette. The walk to Cefalu is short and seemed safe at any hour. There is a terrific grocery store a block away. We spent Christmas Eve here and were able to buy groceries and cook a simple but lovely dinner. The kitchenette is not extensively stocked with pots and pans but it had what I needed to cook and serve antipasti, pasta and salad for 4. We saved quite a bit by buying water and other lunch foods at the grocery store as well as wonderful nuts, torrone and other goodies to bring home as gifts. The staff were lovely and anxious to please. The breakfast was ample and fresh and good. The rooms were clean and had excellent WIFI connections. The parking is indoors under the hotel and hence easy and safe. It is very modern in decor so if you are looking to extend the "centro storico" feel - this is the wrong hotel. But if you want friendly wonderful staff and all the comforts this is the one. We stayed 6 nights and would happily return!

Room Tip: I would guess that in season the lower rooms would be quite noisy. But in December it was fairly qui...

Great Hotel, great location, great staff!
We went for two weeks in October/November 2012. Perhaps a little late in the season, but we still had a reasonable amount of sun.
Hotel is very clean, rooms large, complete with a kitchen/ dining room. It was nice, some nights when it rained, to eat in. Good supermarket just around the corner.
The hotel is right on the beach and a pleasant 5 minute stroll into Cefalu town.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a mini Italian lesson every morning from the lady who did the rooms, she started our day with a smile.
You could take a train into Palermo from Cefalu station, about an hour away.
We went on a trip to the Aeolian islands to see an active volcano, well worth it.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be well positioned, we had a sea view, but I think most rooms had!

I enjoyed a two week break at the Astro in late October. The 'room' is wonderfully spacious so an excellent option for families who still want to benefit from a lovely buffet breakfast. Sicilian bread is... out of this world! The kitchen is spacious and inviting; we cooked a number of meals and saved considerably on eating out costs. The view from the balcony was wonderful: the old city, 'The Rock', the sea. But my main reason for the five stars is the staff. My mother fell and hurt her head halfway through her stay, necessitating a night in hospital, and on her return she was greeted with such gushing and genuine concern and relief - and a lot of practical help, eg. with getting her prescription medicine on a Sunday. I hasten to add that the accident didn't happen on the premises so we weren't being 'buttered up'! Everyone, from the owner to Giovanni on Reception and to the chambermaids were really friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. 'Grazie' to you all!

Room Tip: 209 had a great view.

We stayed for a week in October and from the minute we arrived we were made to feel welcome and important. The staff bent over backwards to make our stay as an enjoyable as possible, you felt valued and almost treated like one of the family. The rooms were spacious and very clean with good facilities in the kitchen. The whole studio was tastefully decorated and the shower was so good you didn't want to get out!! We had a great view of the beach and the rock. It has a great location, the beach is only across the road and the old town of Cefalu only a few minutes walk away.

Room Tip: The rooms facing north (the sea) obviously don't get much sun, south facing rooms overlook a roa...

We had booked Astro Suites for 4 nights based on great reviews on TripAdvisor. After one night we decided to extend our stay with an additional 3 nights.
From the minute we arrived at Astro Suites we felt very welcome and well taken care of. Arriving in a car we were met and assigned a space in their spacious basement garage. The receptionist was very courteous and helped out with baggage (we had a lot). He wanted to give us a room with a view on the top floor, but having small children we opted for the ground floor which as also available.
The room was very clean and spacious, beds comfortable, and everything working as it should. If anything, the kitchen should have more equipment like a coffee-maker, wine glasses, cutting knife and cutting board.
There is a small unheated pool and some loungers, and a EURO 10,00 per 15 minutes jacuzzi, which I suppose they charge to avoid abuse, but the fee is on the high side and was not much in use.
Breakfast is a great start of the day at Astro. The breakfast buffet is, if not plentiful, delicate and enough to suit most people. Bread is fresh, there is cold cuts, fruit, cereal, eggs, cake and yoghurt.
The best things about Astro are the always smiling and helpful staff, and the hotel's proximity to the lovely town of Cefalu. The management really knows how to run a hotel.
Do not miss; the cathedral which will surprise you, bicycling in the nearby hills and montains if that's your thing, the hill-top towns of the Madonie and la Rocca.

Room Tip: Top floor in the eastern block has the best city view.
