We arrived in Cefalu after more than 24 hours of travel, tired and hungry. We were welcomed, shown to a clean, comfortable room and pointed in the direction of a good restaurant right across the street. Couldn't ask for more.
The hotel itself was nothing special and had a little problem with cats. Our host was awesome. He was helpful and very witty. For breakfast he shared food from his own table and offered us more. He made us laugh often.
Traveller from Kaiserslautern, Germany
For a truly relaxing holiday in an enchanting destination, the Mediterraneo Hotel in Cefalù, Sicily is a hard place to …More
Travelled alone, stayed one week in late October, there were very few other guests. On arrival was offered choice of front (overlooking sea) or rear (overlooking open fields) and was told that the rear was quieter. Took the rear and was pleased that balcony was so quiet and private.
Staff very helpful, willing to pass the time of day with me - I speak fluent Italian, which obviously helped.
Gave me maps and timetables to help with getting around.
Dining room open on my 1st morning, had breakfast there, charged 3 Euros for it. Thereafter, dining room closed (end of season?) and guests used cafe next door for breakfast. Good sized cafe, large balcony, run by same family as hotel, enormous range of snacks and some limited evening food available, plus newspapers, tobacco etc.
Rated one of Sicily’s loveliest resorts, this ancient fishing village on the Tyrrhenian coast is deservedly popular. Buildings crowd a rocky shelf below the hill of La Rocca, on which towers Cefalù’s Romanesque cathedral. Byzantine mosaics glitter within, a figure of Christ Pantocrator dominating the apse. Palms and ipalazzi/i line the square outside. King Roger’s palace, a medieval washhouse and the Museo Mandralisca are worth a visit.
