Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for 4 nights in May, I cannot agree with others about the place being rundown.There has been some obvious renovation work and the total effect is simple but clean and inviting. The reception staff are truly exceptional, very friendly and nothing too much trouble. We had a great simple room facing the pool with a small balcony and a magnificent sea view. Breakfast is above average, but the staff did seem to struggle when the room was full - we wondered how they would cope during the high season. We did not eat dinner here, as the prices seemed to us high and there is such a wonderful choice in.Cefalu. Great if you are round the pool, less interesting in the other rooms.

We (2 adults and 1 three year old) visited this hotel over Easter 2014. We had a great stay and can thoroughly recommend this place. The hotel, grounds and rooms are beautiful, decorated in cools whites, creams and light blues. The pool is immaculate, but is cold water, we did manage a dip though. The poolside rooms, we stayed in 115 are great, cool tiled floors, plain walls, very clean, with a large bathroom with shower. The terrace to these rooms come with light curtains to offer you the option of sitting out in privacy, but come with sun loungers and outside lighting. The views are beautiful, such a nice location. Don't be put off by the walk into town, it takes 20mins max, and that is with a small child, and it is a nice safe walk. Close to the hotel are 2 nice places to eat, and the hotel food itself is great and very typically Sicilian. The staff can not do enough for you and were great with our daughter. The breakfasts offer a great variety, catering for any taste and cultural need. Most importantly you have the same choice even if you turn up 15 mins before the end of service. You do have to rely on transfers if your flights don't fit around the trains, but even leaving at 3am the hotel night porter was on hand to check us out and packed us off with a take away breakfast. Transfers are 150 euro, trains only 10 euro per person. The town itself is what it is, typical Sicilian town, places to eat, drink and chill. The beach is nice and clean. Don't expect to have a choice of shops or other activities, that isn't available, but great food is a plenty.

Room Tip: 105 to 113 face the pool, 115 has a large bathroom

We took our art group back to this wonderful hotel in October 2013. Everyone loved it - the rooms are great, the pool lovely,and the views across the sea gorgeous. Swimming in the sea was lovely from the hotel - very easy to walk down to the sea now they have put in a good path to get there - and the water is lovely. The food was good, and the service very friendly. With 20 people to cater for, the staff coped really well, and we had a brilliant private view at the end of the holiday, to show everyone's work. All in all, we would love to go back, and I would go back there with just my family too.

Room Tip: The rooms on the top floor have great views, and are away from the pool so a bit quieter.

This hotel is outside Cefalù. It has a great view and a wonderful private beach with a very nice sea for a good swim or just staying there. As many other beaches in Sicily, it is good to take shoes to the water as you may get hurt. The rooms are kind of too close to the swimming pool and can be noisy. Eating outside is a very good experience. And breakfast outside in the morning is excellent and the place itself unbelievable. We also had lunch. The food was also good. The staff friendly and very helpful. In sum, you won't be disapointed.

Room Tip: Choose the ones that have a curtain. They give you more privacy and kind of an extra space outside y...

Firstly i must apologise as I am a little late in writing this review. It was July 2013 when my then Fiancée and I visited, stayed at Le Calette and were married on the 12th over looking the beautiful harbour from the terrace, that the Hotel team of staff had decked out with breathtaking style and elegance. In my defence, my wife, best friend and partner in crime has already written a review lower down the page that quite rightly leaves nothing unsaid with regards exactly how much we enjoyed and appreciated the hotel and how we were looked after during our stay.

I would just like to say again, an absolutely huge thank you to Mr Mancuso and his team (Gaitano is worth his weight in Gold to the set up) at Le Calette, everybody played a part in making our wedding day better then i ever would have imagined possible, ensuring it will be a day that, not only will i never forget, but also remember with brilliant beautiful clarity.

Simply Unforgettable, look forward to seeing you all again soon.

We got married at this hotel on the 8th September 2013. WOW, the staff were amazing, from the minute I arrived at the hotel from the day before the wedding they were helpful and friendly. We had friends and family popping in for drinks and relaxing by the pool and the hotel were very accommodating and friendly with all our guests. On the big day the staff were helpful, directing people to the right place, helping elderly relatives down to where the wedding was, they couldn't have been better. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, whether it is for a long weekend or a wedding, the location is amazing, the staff are wonderful and the price is perfect. The food for our wedding was amazing, the hotel manager was so friendly and helped us find musicians, flowers, basically everything we needed. He was great on the day helping the photographer and making sure we were happy with everything. The suite we had for the night was out of this world. We had the most amazing wedding day and I would like to thank all the staff at the hotel and the manager for his very friendly service and all his help in making our special day extra special
