The best rooms have a balcony overlooking the sea. Breakfast was fine. It was a nice place to stay altho because of train delays we only spent less than one day there. It is very convenient for the train and bus station, only three blocks away and all downhill so you can wheel the cases if the taxi queue is long.

The hotel has a good location, across the beach. Verry close to the old Town. The parking is next to the hotel. Verry friendly staff. Breakfast was not up to standaards: no fresh Bread or croissants, coffee and cappucino were a bit too watery ( machine stuff). I believe this breakfast “problem” is related to the Covid19 regulations. We had the same problem in other hotels.

Main reason you stay in Cefalu is a nice small town setting, good food, vine and nice beaches. Together with a comfy , headache free accomodaion is all what anyone needs to enjoy yourself. Do not stay in Rive del Sol if you looking for above. From greedy, and rude owner and his wife looking hungry for every euro they can get disregarding the guests privacy, fair and outdated condition of the mostly very small rooms, past mignight loud birthday parties shaking out of hotels walls , to overpriced restaurant ( empty most of the time) is what you get in Rive Del Sole. Stay rather in other hotels on promenade or nice cozy BBs up street.

The breakfast was great, as were the staff down who served us and the view from our room was lovely. The maids who cleaned our room were lovely - always friendly and pleasant. Although very nervous when the manager was around, the staff on reception were lovely and much friendlier when he wasn't there. However, the welcome on our arrival was lukewarm at best. There was a very sour faced old lady stood next to the reception who looked us all up and down unpleasantly and seemed to make the reception staff nervous, as did the Manager with grey hair and glasses (who was also unfriendly and high handed, refusing to reply in english to my questions which was very disconcerting). When we were shown to our room, the patio door didn't work properly, so for the 8 nights we were there, we could only open one side of these doors and despite this being a family room for 3, there were only two chairs on the balcony and it was a squeeze on there for all three of us to sit out. To say the plumbing was antiquated was an understatement; if another room flushed their toilet, it sounded as though it was being flushed in our room and was a constant source of irritation, particularly early in the morning/late at night. The air conditioning was old fashioned, pre-set and could not be altered to your individual requirements either. For a cost of nearly £2000, we felt really short changed. There were unwelcoming signs in the room stating that smoking was prohibited (although this was displayed in an ashtray ...); that no food or drink from outside could be consumed in the hotel room (although the mini fridge was poorly stocked with only one type of each drink and with the prices at least double that of the shop opposite). This is not the normal policy for family friendly hotels. Having normally stayed in 4* hotels for our trips, this felt like a 3* hotel that charged 4* prices and was living on past glories from the 1960s/70s - it needs to decide whether to refurb and continue to charge 4* prices or reduce their prices and policies. Plus the management need to rethink their attitudes and be more like the staff to make it a welcoming choice for international visitors.
