5-star service, amenities, property. Service. They remembered our names and room number by the end of the first day. Everyone was unfailingly polite and welcoming. All spaces spotlessly clean and well maintained. The fancier of the two restaurants, Cala Luna, had what seemed to be two managers, both very genteel and generous with their attentiveness and little extras. Not a single failure of top service throughout. Amenities. Our only heads-up is that Le Callette leans more toward simplicity than grandeur. If you need a cavernous marble bathroom with all the latest fixtures, this isn’t your place. Functional is the word for the bathrooms, soaps, bed linens, etc. Both restaurants are great (the spaghetti and clams at the less formal restaurant is magical), but one dinner at Cala Luna is worth it. Michelin-quality meals with unobstructed views of the sea. Property. To American ears, “Le Callette” sounded French, but it’s Italian for “the coves.” This was by far the most spectacular part of the expedience. There’s a very well maintained pool area with a beautiful view and another area with big beds right on the sea, but what they call their “rocky beach”—bring water shoes—is their showstopper. Many little nooks that you’ll sometimes have all to yourself, except for an urchin here or there, with nooks to wade through and exceptional views through the rocks out to the sea…truly postcard perfect.…
Le Calette was full for the week so we stayed at their sister hotel.... A lot of hype about Le Calette's refurbishment and we were able to experience the hotel thanks to the reciprocal arrangements with their other hotel.... I loved the staff ... they are all making a huge effort BUT the management needs to focus on details.... service can be slow.... the Reef Club staff are rally doing great work BUT if you are spending $500-$1000+++ per night you want service at club loungers/sunbeds .... I also feel its a lost revenue situation when you have to get up and walk to the bar area at the Reef Club to order or re-order drinks.... Food at the bar area of the Reef Club was 'ok' but the chap working the bar sensational... really doing a great job! The young lady and manager ( Red Shirt ) also doling all they can but you need more staff if you have a full space with guests..... Huge potential but some tired aspects ... To Cala Luna Restaurant .. it was really special.... Sensational venue ... each dish was spectacular on the tasting menu and the wine pairing lovely.... Each staff member is trying REALLY hard and they were so attentive and caring.... My real concern is the mosquito's .. you will be bitten silly so keep that in mind... it almost spoilt our evening .. the hotel needs to address this.... because of the outside settings / gardens its very uncomfortable .... When you are spending serious money on dinner and wines I also expected 'one' of the two restaurant managers ( two were evident as they had a journalist or someone special they were fawning after two tables away ) to engage with guests .... the one manager was charming saying hello but his english not the best and he never approached us or any other table again.... if this hotel wants international guests thats a must..... Also if you are spending nearly Euro 200 in a wine pairing ( and the wines were insanely good ) I would like a sommelier to tell us about the wines..... but again all the staff were very focused like the chef and managers to one table...... the lovely young wine waiter did his best and I truly admired his efforts. This was an expensive meal and we thought worth it... the chef and his team are doing a great job! It could be really special BUT needs some real attention if you are going to charge these prices...... touches and details could be better .... but I sensed its still finding its way... the food and wines I thought were just sensational but its those finer details that will make this a truly spectacular experience ..... No guests want to see the chef coming out and fawning after a wine journalist and both managers doing the same while other guests look on - every guest should be given the same attention... I have to say this hotel is making a real effort ... the staff really impressed me other that than the two managers evident in Cala Luna but its a lovely spot.....…
Exceeded our expectations, in awe of the location and view each day of our stay. The service was outstanding and the food to match. If you are looking for a true resort to relax and recharge the batteries this is the place. The Old Town of Cefalu is close by and very enjoyable to walk around, shop and dine. I can't say enough good things about our stay, it was the last 3 days of a 2 week Italy journey and we ended it on a high. Thanks again to the staff at Le Calette, you all do a magnificent job.
Thanks for the one of the best week!!! Absolutely top! Te view The breakfast The pool The bridge and sea The restaurant’s The hospitality The service The calm atmosphere We just loved it!!! Thanks!!! We are longing back.
Had the most incredible stay, the hotel is beautiful, the rooms are luxurious, the staff are thoughtful and generous without being overbearing. Restaurant is next-level good. I cannot reccomend enough
Le Calette is a gem - fantastic service, location and amenities. Biggest disappointment is we didn’t stay longer ! Would highly recommend great for couples and families. Cefalù is a charming town within walking distance
Outstanding stay! This is my second time staying at the resort. The restaurant has raised the bar on exceptional Sicily fare. Dine outdoors for breakfast and dinner overlooking the beautiful sea. The Reef club and pool areas provide great service and full menus. It is quiet, peaceful and relaxing. The Spa provides an extensive list of services that are well provided. There are three separate buildings providing accommodations. The main building, the Gardens and the Bay. Rooms are modern, clean, spacious and utilize great AC units. I will return.
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.…
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.
