We stayed here for d 1st week in August and got a room with a view of the square. The loveliness of the location lasted for the duration of 2 photos.....after this you come to the realisation that if it's a quiet relaxing holiday you were after you came to the wrong place. The fun starts at 7am in the square each morning and this can range from a strimmer gone nuts for about 2 hrs (there's no garden area in the square so this remains a mystery to me) or the friendly neighbourhood helicopter carting heavy items to the top of a mountain via the square for around 3 solid hours to a full on brass bands (our early morning wake up call today). Also, the bedroom doesn't have AC (it's in d sitting room) and its about 40 degrees out so u kind of have to leave the doors open... Not that they can block out the noise even when closed. Separate to the really fun noise issue the linens aren't changed all week.
The positives are- you're in the prettiest part of cefalu and it's a short walk to the beach. There's plenty of nice restaurants and ice cream shops close by and when you're ears have stopped ringing/ bleeding you can enjoy a coffee in the square
