We originally wanted to stay just 4 nights but decided to extend for 7 nights as we just loved it so much here. The breakfast staff is extremely friendly and the buffet and a la carte breakfast offers everything you can just possibly just think of. Due to COVID 19 the staff had to serve each person at the breakfast buffet which they did very professionally. Rooms were spacious and cleaned daily to perfection. The reception staff speaks perfect english and is also highly professional. We even got a complimentary late check out as we had to leave at 5pm to Palermo to catch the ferry. We also loved the pool area and beach where we rented kayaks and a SUP and went snorkeling in the crystal clear water. As we brought our mountain bikes with us from Austria we really enjoyed the back country tours with stunning views all starting from the front door of the hotel. The gym and spa area is brand new and looks very stylish. Especially that you can see the pool above you when exercising in the gym. Each night we loved walking to the Center of Cefalù and enjoyed the delicious Sicilian cuisine. It just takes 15 minutes you are back at the hotel which is good to digest the large amount of food. :-) We will definitely come back and recommend this gem to our family and friends. Stay safe and all the best until next time, Pia & Stephan.

My wife and I recently spent 5 nights at Le Calette N5. We had booked a comfort room which in the description said it had a patio area. This is wrong. These rooms do not have a patio area or any private outdoor space. Just a chair next to the reception door. We were extremely disappointed after paying nearly 400 euros a night. After complaining we were moved to a better room with a patio area. The hotel and its grounds are very pleasant and an easy 20 minute walk to the centre of Cefalù. Also the staff at the hotel are excellent and resolved our complaint quickly. Lovely hotel I just don’t believe a hotel of that standard should offer the comfort rooms which are way below the standard of a 5 star hotel.

Dear Darrendazler, Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay at our Hotel Le Calette. Probably the room you are talking about is the Classic Room (as we do not have Comfort Rooms) which have outdoor space with chairs in front of the room; but if you are looking for some outdoor private space it is better to book a Deluxe Room, which is the room you have been moved the day after your arrival. The description of the two different kinds of rooms is clear on our website, thank you for highlighting the misleading word used in Booking.com, we have promptly request an edit in this portal. Your appreciation of the beauty of our grounds and of the efficient work of our Staff fill us with joy! We will be very happy to welcome you another time so that you can enjoy again all our facilities and take advantage of all benefits reserved to our repeat customers. Best regards, Staff of Le Calette Hotel

Very average. Would not consider it to be a 5 star hotel. We stayed in a deluxe pool view room, they are small and dark with no proper wardrobe and very little space. The toilet absolutely stunk of sewage, no water left by beds one single night out of our 4 night stay which I feel is poor for a 5 star hotel. Cheap towels and air con did not work and turned itself off every 10 minutes. Breakfast is underwhelming, it’s a buffet with very little choice and a cooked egg service. It’s also poorly managed with long waits for cooked eggs and wrong orders being sent out. Waiters also seem impatient and flustered which isn’t exactly the relaxing morning you want. Pool area is the one good thing about the hotel. The reef club is very poorly executed, when we were there the decking had been removed due to weather or some sort of excuse , the restaurant was always covered in plastic sheets so seemed desolate and the reef bed area had all furniture and party equipment stacked up around it so you feel like you’re just in a dead end of the hotel. The grounds are huge but poorly kept and you’re also amongst private properties which are also somewhat run down so it’s overall a little scruffy. No shuttle to the town as advertised so you have the option of a 20 minute walk up a main road in a horrible area or a 10 euro taxi that takes 5 minutes at most. I would never go back to this hotel, it’s pleasant but not good value at all. Feels more like a 3/4 star hotel to me compared to the amazing 5 stars I’ve stayed at around the world

Dear LouisaLam7, Thank you for taking the time to review our Hotel; your words are extremely formative for us. We apologize that our service did not satisfy your expectations. Please note that in both rooms you stayed the turndown service was regularly done and that twice a day (in the morning and in the evening) our Housekeeping staff left on the desk a bottle of water in the tray together with the glasses. Moreover, concerning the Reef Club, just before your stay there was a bad storm that destroyed our wooden platform. It was unexpected and we tried to do our best to let our guests enjoy the seaside anyway in the following days. We are sorry to hear that this situation of emergency has compromised your opinion of our Hotel and we hope to welcome you once again so that you may fully enjoy all our services. Best regards, Staff of Le Calette Hotel

We visited early August. It was a fabulously relaxing holiday. Positives: grounds and restaurants, pool area and the bay for swimming directly below the terrace. The reception staff were extremely helpful, Davide the barman and his team were also super friendly. The rooms were excellent (we stayed in the area close to reception not in the gardens) and the cleaning staff did a great job. Only negative was breakfast which was slightly chaotic due to COVID-19. But this did not spoil the holiday at all. RECOMMENDED.

Just back from an 11 day stay at Le Calette N5 and we had a wonderful and very relaxing holiday. The hotel setting is truly spectacular and we enjoyed the facilities of the extensive property, particularly the Reef Club, looked after extremely well by all the staff and especially Gaetano, Antonio, Deborah and Salvo. We stayed in a double deluxe room, opening out directly onto the pool area with a beautiful view of the sea. The room, although smaller than expected, was very comfortable; lovely modern decor in boutique style, luxury Sicilian bathroom products and spotlessly clean. Not once did the housekeeping staff miss the turndown service and towels were replenished at least twice daily. Although clean, the towels could have been of better quality; this includes the beach towels. We did have an unfortunate situation one day when one set of parents were taking their children to the toilet in the showers by the pool. We informed the management and they were very quick to sanitise the area thoroughly. Not the hotel’s fault or the children’s for that matter. In an environment where safety is of primary importance, we did feel that the hotel had very effective COVID measures in place, however, the system currently in place for breakfast is not conducive to the hotel’s 5 stars. It would be much better to have an a la carte breakfast service from both safety and enjoyment perspectives. The hotel arranged transfers for us between the hotel and Palermo Airport. Although we could not fault the quality of the drivers, the cars were all local Cefalu cabs. We would have been very happy to pay extra to have a luxury transfer and think that the hotel should look into offering this option. Cefalu itself is a lovely town with excellent restaurants. Not much shopping but I did feel that we has a taste of the real Sicily. All our meals were super. We would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel or recommending it to friends. Thank you to all the staff for a wonderful holiday.
