The sea views from terrace , outside dining area , rooms and private beach area are fantastic. The pool area is exceptionally well kept , clean , with excellent water quality and during our 2week stay we did not need to book sun beds at any time . There is no music at the pool and it is located in a quiet pleasant area across the hotel car park . The pool is 25meters long which is great for a good swim and is big enough for many swimmers,there is also a safe child play pool and play areas nearby. The private beach allows access to a safe sea swim area and is also great for snorkelling , we watched a local diver catch an octopus about 10 meters from the shore for his Sunday dinner. The room was always kept clean and the decor was bright ,modern and maybe even Art Deco style ,with two comfortable chairs to admire the views thro double balcony doors with shutters. A safe is provided in the room at no extra cost as is AC. The shower and toilet were clean ,well kept with a large wash hand basin top area . The shower had easy controls and the water was a good pressure for the shower. The balcony with sea views are in the shade after about 1.30 which is good for snack lunch and sun downers .
Plenty of sun shade/ umbrellas at beach , pool and terrace
We had problems sleeping despite AC , mattress was comfortable but as it was hot and humid we just sweated a lot in bed ...for all the wrong reasons...being older?
The staff were ok but some seemed disinterested?..maybe end of season , best staff were the cleaners.
The walk down to the private beach is a lot of steps down cliff which is ok if you take it slow and easy, but the steps are in need of repair in some areas and you had to be carefull.
The bar service was good but when paying cash very rarely was a receipt given ...same drinks with varying costs arose ?
We did not have a car and the walk to Cefalu is about 20minutes , nearest reasonably priced restaurant La Tavernata is about a 10 min walk which we used 4 times. There is a local bus stop at entrance to hotel but service is about every hour so you need to time journeys to suit, taxi cost 10euros .
There is no entertainment at the hotel except for a piano playing one night / week . After 10.30 the bar area was very quiet
