Amazing location you can enjoy a walk in the nature of a swim in the amazing Sicilian sea. I’ll definitely go back there whenever will be possible! Host was very kind and attentive and service was very good. Looking forward to be back in summer.

The location of this hotel, about 20 minutes walk out of town overlooking the rocky bay, is absolutely lovely. There are three ostensibly separate hotels in the resort, No. 5, Garden and Bay but they all share the same amenities. No. 5 is the most expensive and the garden rooms look slightly smaller but they are all overpriced. There is only one swimming pool but there are many terraces with large double sunbeds overlooking the sea and ladders down from the rocks into the water. It's a traditional Italian Hotel which is 50 years old and design - wise, looks it. It's very dolce vita in the bar and restaurant but the rooms are dated. They have been freshly white-washed but we were staying in a junior suite which was bizarrely configured - half of it was an empty room with a sunken spa bath, off which was a small basic shower with cracked walls. The bathroom itself had two basins and was large and bright but it had one of those terrible hair dryers that are basically just a an articulated pipe. The toiletries were lovely - Ortiga - but the towels were thin, old and frayed. The main room consisted of a comfortable large double bed, one side of which was pushed against the wall, and an antiquated sofa bed. There was an old fashioned white melamine wardrobe which had no full length hangers and the blackout curtains were partly hanging off the rails. Breakfast the first day was lovely, situated on a lawn overlooking the bay. Despite covid there was a breakfast buffet where you instructed one of the waiters what you would like put on your plate and it worked surprisingly well. However once the weather was less clement, breakfast was removed into the dining room which was rather dark and old fashioned and service was much slower. And as rain threatened, for three of our four day stay the reef club restaurant and bar remained closed and all meals were disappointingly in the main dining room. There is a good gym in the basement with windows into the swimming pool. Bottom line - the list price for B&B in our room is over €500 a night and it's simply not worth it.

Dear Lazzagear, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our Hotel, your words are extremely important to us. We apologize that our Junior Suite in our four-start complex did not fully satisfy your expectations, we will follow your comments to upgrade it, but please note that in the room there are two kinds of hairdryers: the one that you described together with a normal one inside the wardrobe close to the security safe. Thank you very much for your appreciation of our position, outdoor services and gym. Our prices this year have to take into consideration the costs of the different measures adopted. Costs which are needed to keep providing a serene environment and meet the highest standards of hygiene and safety in response to Coronavirus. You can find all the measures in our website; it will be evident that they are not cost free. Also our indoor dining procedures, that you felt as lengthy, are inevitably linked to the serious situation that we are living this year. We hope to welcome you once again, so that you may fully enjoy all our services. Sending you our kindest regards, we remind you that from now on you will enjoy all benefits reserved to our repeat customers. Staff of Le Calette Hotel

It is undoubtedly a breathtaking location and the staff are good. However even in a suite the bathroom is tiny (the size of a toilet cubicle) and the air conditioning is very poor. Towels are also poor quality and low in number. You are only given one key card, which needs to be in the power slot in order for the air con to function so if you are out all day or evening it is not possible to get the room to a comfortable temperature. Whilst the hotel have a breakfast service to comply with COVID measures it is badly organised and guests routinely got the wrong orders or waited a long time. For the price of the rooms such issues should not be prevalent in a 5* hotel.

Dear Nicky, Thank you for the time you have spent with us and for your feedback, which is extremely important for us. We are truly delighted in reading that you have appreciated our staff and location, and sorry to hear that the architectonic style of our suite did not fully match your expectations. The temperature of our air conditioner can be set both from inside the room and from a central system outside the room, it is a pity that you did not contact our staff. Indeed, you could have asked either to set the aircon at your preferred temperature or another card for your room. Our food procedures, that you felt as lengthy, are inevitably linked to the serious situation that we are living this year. Indeed, we adopted several measures among which also our served breakfast buffet to keep providing a serene environment and meet the highest standards of hygiene and safety. Our foremost priority is our guest satisfaction and your feedback allows us to improve and get better. We really hope to see you soon to show you how your words have been taken into consideration and to make you enjoy all benefits reserved to our repeat customers. Best regards, Staff of Le Calette Hotel

The perfect pandemic escape! My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights and wish we had booked longer. We arrived and received first class treatment with a welcome glass of champagne. We ended up spending most of our time at the hotel because they had everything we needed, beach, dock, pool, excellent food and drinks, and relaxing daybeds to lounge on. The employees were all amazing and went above and beyond, especially Derek and the ladies running reception. Would definitely recommend staying at this hotel! Cefalù is also such a cute little town with the best food!

Nice resort type accomodation in older garden view room. Beautiful resort with great swimming pool and beach access 20 mins walk from Cefalù which is a truly beautiful Sicilian town. Wonderful breakfast buffet outside on a lawn overlooking the sea. Train track nearby but not overly noisy. Would also be a great place for families. We were a couple and enjoyed our stay. Very helpful staff
