The four star rating is NOT justified. Although the grounds and swimming pools were good, the impression - especially the food - was reminiscent of a Seventies style Spanish budget hotel. I knew the breakfast was buffet; I did not know dinner was as well. Moreover, the food was poor, and invariably lukewarm, even when freshly presented. There was no separate bar: the only bar was in the reception hall, which gave the impression of being in a railway station. At times it was noisy, too, when we were forced to share it with wedding parties (three times in ten days). Our bedroom was pleasant, as was the balcony with chairs and a table; however, the marble bathroom was 'tired', and the bedroom itself had no chair or sofa (just a day bed / ? extra bed). Also, there were no tissues provided or coffee-making facilities.
All in all, having stayed at half a dozen 4 star hotels in mainland Italy, and been delighted with the service, facilities and food, my wife and I were very disappointed with this one.
Our third stay, at this lovely hotel. Great location on the beach. Great staff. Manager very attentive and accomadating. We are planning our forth stay for next Summer. We love this Hotel, it has everything a great vacation is expected of!
Hotel has small beach and pool but is about mile and a half from town ( which is inland), there are 2 decent restaurants and 2 bars close by - nothing else. Shop only sells tobacco and magazines.
Breakfast reasonable but nothing available after that - bar wasn't open while I was there. Couldn't even get a cup of coffee without going out. Hotel is only 10 minutes from station so it was a good base , trains are cheap and there is an hourly service to Palermo.
Staff were pleasant and helpful, but very limited English .
After travelling through Palermo via train me and my partner were spectictal about how nice Cefalu would be and the accommodation. On arrival to the hotel we were amazed how close you where to the (private) beach! The hotel staff were wonderful, friendly and tried there up most to satisfy us especially with speaking English. We only had breakfast however the buffet selection catered for all. The bedrooms had all the essentials, good size shower, clean towels, hair dryer, comfy bed and a sea view balcony. In summary really would recommend this gem of a hotel in a beautiful part of Sicily!
"A mock castle that's almost impossible to find off the main road, but worth it."
Excellent hotel. Reception staff helpful, room with brilliant decor and lots of space. Breakfast was nothing special. The whole space felt fantastic in a mock castle, but there was hardly anybody there - it would feel different if full of other guests. There is 24 hour free use of computer which has good internet connection. No pool.
