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.

We had a very pleasant stay at Villa Magara. Clean room, nice terrace with sea view. In easy reach of Cefalu and yet very calm. Anna and her mother were very friendly and very helpful. I could highly recommend this place !

The accomodation was really nice and big. The rooms were clean and well put together. From the balcony we had a really nice view during the day and also at night chasing the stars. Even if we stood for a short time we had a good relaxation at the pool. The staff was really kind and friendly, she stood up late at night to wait for us. All together I highly recommend this accommodation, for sure if I will have the occasion I will come back !

Everything was perfect, we will definitely come back! Amazing views and the animals were the highlight of our trip for the kids. Friendly staff, nice area! Cefalu is a super pretty town too with lots to see and a nice white sandy beach.

The location is absolutely fantastic and very quiet. You can sleep in the old farm or in a small but cheap studio where everything you need is present. There is a nice swimmingpool on the property for all the guests.

Just what we needed, peaceful area, beautiful views and close enough to drive to the Centre or any other town we wanted to go to. We had a few visits from Magara the owner’s dog and a few goats came to Say whilst having breakfast on our terrace. Loved it! Thank you Daniela!

Well, the view is perfect, the breakfast abundant and very cheap for the amount of food you get. The rooms are very basic, with small bathrooms. Overall very good for the relatively good charges. one must remember it is not a 5 star hotel. The only thing i didn't like is that during our 3 night stay no one ever replaced the towels, and checked bathroom supplies for us. We had to buy from a supermarket. Otherwise, owner very very helpful and cute dog roaming around the estate

The apartments have a fantastic seaview and are very spacious. The swimming pool overlooks the sea. The apartments have different owners and are therefore not all comfortably furnished. Our apartment had very uncomfortable chairs on the balcony and no parasol or umbrella. We asked for a solution and got an umbrella 2 days before leaving. This was only after asking several times. Our kitchen lacked of the basic utensils (i.e. colander) and even cooking a simple pasta was complicated. Besides these downsides of the apartments, the location is great and we enjoyed our stay in Cefalù.

We stayed at Villa Magara for 5 nights and fell in love with the place. Cefalu as itself is a beautiful place but the view from Villa Magara is just amazing. The owners were friendly and we loved all the animals they had (donkeys, goats, chicken...). The second floor studio for two was small and dark and the mini kitchen was tiny but we didn't stay in much so it was ok. I was first worried how the shared terrace would work as I like my own privacy but I had no problem wit it. It's actually nicer to have a vast view from a large terrace than to have a small balcony. It's a long way to walk from Villa Magara to the historical center of Cefalu. It takes about 45 min. even if you walk fast. We only walked once and other times went by car. The traffic is a bit crazy and we didn't find any free parking places. But with car Cefalu is only 5 min away from Villa Magara. The closest beach to Villa Magara is 20 min by walking and it's one of the most beautiful beaches I've been to. Besides Cefalu we quickly visited Giardini Naxos, Taormina, Acitrezza and Catania. I think Cefalu was the best of these.
