Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The hotel is really comfortable and calm. Great staff and nice food, beautiful surroundings and pool. Its a half hour walk to Cefalu so we could walk off all the pasta and ice-cream we ate in the restaurants. Had a wonderful time. Take a snorkel and mask, the sea is clean and full of life. Its a rocky cove and felt safe to swim all around. We didn't see one jellyfish the whole time! Highly recommended.

We booked Hotel Kalura very last minute for two nights and only wished we had stayed there longer!! The private beach was absolutely breathtaking and not overcrowded. Stunning for snorkelling (all included) as lots of fish to see. The drive into Cefalu for supper was only 4 minutes by car (too hot to walk the 30 minutes)! Breakfast was epic - a great selection for everyone! Tennis court available to book which we did early one morning (can borrow the hotels rackets and balls)! We were hoping to do yoga but only scheduled on select days. FAB stay.

It it sad to see a number of negative reviews of this hotel. Our experience good not have been better. The location and views out to sea and down the coast are superb. We had a room with a terrace which had the most wonderful views. There is a large fresh water swimming at the rear of the hotel with a tennis court and very good swimming at the front albeit down a steep set of steps and from a concrete sitting area as the hotel has no beach. The food is very good both at breakfast and at dinner. The tables are set out so that most people can enjoy the view whilst eating. It is possible to walk into Cefalu from the hotel which takes about 20 minutes. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The hotel is all about its location so don’t be tempted to have a room without a view as you will regret it.

My stay began with a greeting from the resident dog who marked hi territory throughout the lobby. This included carpets and furnishings. Then, I was placed in a room that had absolutely no view and was not offered an upgrade, even though the hotel was not completely booked. During my stay, I encountered a medical emergency with a close family member and needed to depart early. Not only were they unsympathetic, they actually charged me for a night I did not stay. Mind you, I paid twice the amount per night that was advertised on their site. They were rude, inconsiderate and inhospitable! There was also no acclamation services to the hotel.

This is a nice hotel with a lot of amenities including a beach, a pool, tennis, and a spa. Breakfast is served on the terrace with a panoramic view of the Spiaggia Caldera. It was a staffed buffet – you told them what you wanted, and the servers plated it for you – so it was Covid compliant. There was a wide assortment of meats, pastries, fruit, and beverages. The coffee was excellent! Our room was comfortable and spacious with a view of the beach. The hotel is in a very scenic area, but the trade off is that it is a 10€ taxi ride to Piazza Garibaldi or the beach. Shuttle service would be a nice addition.

We found our stay at Hotel Kalura fantastic. We were amazed with the beautiful scenic views, the excellent service, the comfortable yet stylish room and the location. The staff were so friendly and helpful, particularly Angelo and Giuseppe behind the bar who worked hard to make us feel warm and welcome (some of the best bar men we have ever met..) we will miss the gorgeous food and delicious cocktails. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a perfect holiday ❤️

When they set the restaurant between lunch and dinner, they put bread sticks and a couple of rolls on the table. There they sit until the guests arrive - the bread now cold and dry. The service is fine, but the food is not excellent. The first night I had the risotto, and the rice were just a little raw - a little too al dente. The second night there was a large hair in the potatoes, and the pork roll was: not a roll, just some minced meat in a covering, and it was dry and bland. One other thing: When you have a mirror ceiling, you need to polish it. And the uplights have to be cleaned for dead flies.

Rooms were pretty cheaply decorated, hair dryer was basically a hand dryer, shower was good and powerful but the whole time we were there the soaps were never filled up and completely empty which we asked to be refilled every day but to no avail. Went to the restaurant at 9.10 they said they wouldn't offer us any hot food only salads as they said the kitchen closed in 15 mins even though it wasn't meant to close until 9.30. If a kitchen closes at 9.30 surely your hot food stays on until 9.30 otherwise advertise your kitchen stops at 9.15. I said this to the kitchen manager and he got angry was was very argumentative and aggressive. We were told you can only order salads but then he said we couldn't have a chicken salad as it would take too long to cook the chicken. Like seriously??? It's a 25 minute walk to town walking quick as my gf and I are very fit and a lot of the journey is walking at the side of the road with no path so if you have a family keep that in mind as we got a taxi back rather than risk the road. Views and beach were great but restaurant and food was terrible and the staff in there were rude. Front desk staff were nice but not overly helpful as asked for best excursions and things to do around the area and she said she'd draw up a list, next day we asked and nothing, no list, no recommendations just a blank look. Wouldn't recommend if you want to be near town or are a foodie as to get good food takes a cab or a journey along a not so safe road. Much better places in my eyes I'd stay in the old.

The Kalura is one of the few hotels which appears nicer in reality than on the pictures of the various internet pages. It is situated a nice 20 minute walk from Old Town Cefalu, "around the rock". Our seaview room was small and had no special luxury, but a gorgeous view and it felt comfortable. The only downside was the toilet whoch only had sliding door that did not fully close. WIFI was stable. Breakfast was a little time consuming due to the Covid restrictions. You had to wait in line for everything you want. Generally the food in the restaurant was good and not too pricey, and you could sit on the beautiful terrasse. Lots of parking space free of charge. Pool was nice but way too cold. Service was friendly throughout our stay.

So we stayed in a double room with sea view on the 5th level. The balcony view is incredible. The cheap price reflects the bathroom but if you can look past this, it is fine. The rooms were very clean and the staff all super helpful. Breakfast outside on the terrace very special to start the day. Finally, the sheltered cove is a great sun trap and super spot to go snorkelling. Do not go to Mondello, come here is our best advice. Beautiful town also 15mins walk away.
