Splendid small resort located on a picturesque coastline near Cefalu. The pavilions are comfortable with all (and even more) equipments likely to make the stay most remarkable. Excellent management and services, quality of food VERY GOOD, number of activities and excursions available… ALL IN ALL: SUPERB AND ABSOLUTELY TO BE RECOMMANDED !

I stayed at the Calanica for a week in early October 2020 with my husband and two boys, fourteen and six years of age. What a wonderful place! The hotel is located above a tiny bay that hotel guests have exclusively to themselves. The bungalows are set on a hillside above the sea. The view is breathtaking! Room: we had a junior suite with a double bed and a convertible sofa that turned into a bunk bed. Our boys thought that was very cool. The room was spacious, well equipped and stylishly decorated. There was even a little kitchenette, though it lacked a tea/coffee maker. There was a little terrace with chairs and a table as well were we liked to sit and enjoy the view. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. Grounds: the grounds are pretty and well-kept. The pool is big and there were plenty of sun beds, but the water was quite cold. There is a tennis court as well. Beach: there are two sun decks and one can access the sea from one of them. This is easier than it looks. We swam in the sea every day, even when the surf was strong. The beach is rocky, but the ocean floor becomes sandy a few steps beyond the water line. I do recommend water shoes, though. It is best to swim to the left of the big rock, as there are no rocks in the water there. The water was lovely, clear, and warm. Food: we only had breakfast at the hotel. The food was very good. There was a buffet with bread, cheese, cold cuts, jam, pastries and cakes, fruit, cereals, yoghurt and one could order eggs to taste. The coffee was excellent! Staff: The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We arrived very late at about 1 a.m., but a very nice man was waiting for us, explained all the facilities to us and showed us to our room. So nice! All in all, our stay was excellent and I warmly recommend this hotel.

This truly is a great and relaxing resort. The staff were very friendly, especially during checkin and check out. It is beautifully layed out with about 25 bungalows on a hill. They have two lounge areas with access to the sea. Rooms were clean and breakfast is very good. Its about a 30 minute walk to Cevalu, along the beach and boulevard. Taxi to the city is 12 euro flat rate (one way). They also have a swimming pool, which is located outside of the resort. A few minor things for improvement: - they should not allow people reserving sunbeds, almost all beds are being reserved at 9 in the morning. - they have a beach bar which is opened all day, but there is no staff to help you - breakfast is untill 09.30, which is quite early if you are on a holiday

Stayed for four nights in this lovely resort. Everything was perfect. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They go out of their way to help out. It was a great place for a relaxing holiday. The bungalows are all sea view. It is spacious and comfortable for a family of three. The view is spectacular. It’s a must to see the sunset. The beach area is very quiet and we almost had it for ourselves. The crystal clear sea was amazing and inviting. Breakfast was good with a good variety. Lunch and dinner was also good. We felt very safe as all staff and hotel regulations obeyed social distancing which was very important to us during this time. Highly recommend this lovely hotel! Will definitely be back.

This is a wonderful little gem of a hotel. Our family of four fit comfortably in our bungalow & enjoyed our own version of Tiny House Nation! Bungalow was clean and AC worked great! Breakfast was a great spread & the staff was wonderful with our small kids. The pool was great & we had it to ourselves most of the time. Highly recommend this resort!
