After carrying out lots and lots of research this hotel kept coming up with such fantastic reviews, so I decided to book a 3 night getaway for my Fiances Birthday. Before doing so, I emailed the hotel asking for information on a taxi from the airport, help with making my Fiances birthday special and the possibility of a last minute wedding, would you believe. Within no time at all the lovely Rosamaria had answered all my questions, I had no doubt that this was the hotel of choice. We took a bus from Palermo airport to Palermo city centre and then a train from Palermo to the town of Cefalu (which is stunning, with great restaurants) this took around an hour and a half in total and then a taxi to the hotel from Cefalu which was only a 10 minute ride.
Upon arrival this is where our amazing 3 night getaway started, and it is thanks to four people. Rosamaria (where nothing was ever to much trouble and she always had a smile), Carlos and Daniele who are the the waiters (again nothing was to much trouble, even organising lunch on the roof terrace) and the Manager who after asking where we could purchase sun tan cream, told us that he'll let us know, only to then have a knock at the door to discover that he actually went out to buy it for us as a gift.
The Hotel itself is immaculate, the room was fantastic, swimming pool was cold but refreshing and the roof terrace gave incredible views over Cefalu and lunch was also delicious.
Just some advice, I would put a little extra in your budget for taxi's into town at 15 euro one way, but it would be well worth it.
Overall an amazing retreat and a massive thank you to all of the staff mentioned with a special thank you to Rosamaria for making our stay extra wonderful. We can't wait to come back.
