Hotel Tourist is fantastic.
Great location and great service. Breakfast buffet is great quality and tasty stuff. The lido is right across the street. Probably only negative of the location is the lido, very rocky to get to and very tight. Otherwise, amazing. Pool is great, too. Thank you hotel Tourist.

This property was beachfront, and had a nice swimming pool. We walked into the Cefalu city center every night we stayed - it was a decent walk, but not overwhelming. The air conditioning in the room functioned great. We enjoyed checking out the little bars/food opportunities along the beach as well. Overall, a nice, clean hotel in a great location.

Bad 1st. Whoever fitted out our bedroom had no idea of guests needs as we had NO drawers and had to live out of our suitcases. They make you walk out onto the public pavement to get round to the pool, when they have a perfectly good way through an outside eating area, which is similar to most other hotels we have stayed at, but they block the gates. 3euro for a beach towel which you can keep for till u leave but 3 euro if you exchange for a clean one. Only eat there, in evening, once and wouldn't a second time. Breakfast just about acceptable. No courtesy room after we checked out, had to use, inadequate, communal pool shower block. Our room safe was loose in the wardrobe and you could easily walk off with it. Beach very stony in the sea, unlike the photo. Sandy area further along. Now the good. Excellent hotel car pick up at the airport, 190euros return, cheaper than others. Great that the Hotel beach sun beds/umbrellas were free (rare in Italy) and directly opposite the hotel. Lifeguards on watch both pool and beach. Staff extremely helpful and friendly, especially Roy the barman who would bring the drinks to the pool for you if he wasn't busy. Pool and surroundings always clean and loads of free sun beds with no-one reserving them while we were there. Other guests seemed mainly Italian. Hotel prices reasonable, similar to other bars etc, bar food and drinks OK. 15 minute walk into town. 2 to 3 minute walk to nearest beach bar then another every minute or so, towards town.

The ocean view was beautiful! The bathroom facilities were poor; the shower was slippery, there was no place to hang clothes for dressing, and the hot water ran out after two showers. The elevator was five steps up, so it was not accessible for the elderly or handicapped, and it was very difficult to carry luggage up the stairs, to the elevator.

Good value hotel with a lot of positive points.
A nice hotel 10 minute walk into town. Nice private beach a few minutes along the promenade. Could have done with providing beach towels. Linen in room well used and a bit grubby but otherwise all clean and comfortable. Nice pool but too deep for young children or non swimmers. Shallowest part 1.5m, great if you really want to swim.

Cefalu - Stunning
The hotel is a little dated but very clean and the rooms have everything you need. Staff are very helpful. Absolutely beautiful area, pictures do not do this place justice. It is stunningly beautiful and I would recommend this place to anyone. The food is fab, the area very clean and the hospitality superb. Amazing sunsets!

Long awaited trip
Hotel ideally positioned along the coast in a quiet spot. Lovely big pool and sitting area. We overlooked the pool with a little balcony. Breakfast was very good and plenty of. 10 minute walk if that into the main town along the front. Town of Cefalu is beautiful lovely winding streets, plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants. Great atmosphere. Would defiantly go back and stay longer.

Simple and affordable
The hotel location was right on the beach within walking distance to the adorable old town of Cefalu. The staff was exceedingly kind and helpful. The room was pretty small and basic. The beds were just only ok. Breakfast was included and they croissants were good but the rest was simply fine. Because of it being the off season the chairs on the beach were not set up yet (understandably) and it was too cold and rainy to use the pool so I can’t comment upon those. In all the hotel was simply fine and a good price.

Nice Hotel
Stayed in hotel for a couple of days. Received a room upgrade to room with a see view which was pleasing. Hotel is in a good location. 15 - 20 minute walk into Cefalu along the beech front. Swimming pool is a really good size and plenty of room to sit around. Wifi in the rooms worked well. Room was very clean. Hotel was fine for a short stay as 3 star hotel.
