The Santa Lucia Hotel is a nice and comfortable hotel with an amazing view over the coast of Cefalù. It has an easy access to the beach. Only the music of the animation team/ band can be annoying at nighttime.

Stayed: June 2018, travelled with friends

Stayed for a week half board. Great view from room. Room was adequate and cleaned regularly. Food was decent and restaurant staff were attentive. Good value overall.

Low quality towels my only complaint

The hotel lived up to our expectations. The room was clean, well equipped. I expected it to be a little bit more spacious, but it didn't feel claustrophobic.
I strongly advise booking a room with a sea view, overlooking the old town.
In the morning/evening you only hear birds and seagulls and the view is spectacular. There's a railroad next to this side of the hotel, some may find it annoying, but we didn't. It was overshadowed by a wonderful view. The food was great. Breakfast was buffet-style with plenty of options to choose from: pastries, cold cuts, variety of cheeses, eggs, jams, cereals, hot and cold beverages... Dinner comprised two dishes and a dessert. The dinnertime service was a bit slower than usual, presumably typical for Italian style of living and mentality. I cannot find any downsides to this hotel, and therefore recommend staying at this place. This would be my choice, should i be so fortunate as to visit Cefalu again:-)

This is a value for money hotel in an excellent location. We were initially very disappointed as we had requested a room on a high floor and had paid for a balcony. We were allocated a disabled room on the ground floor! The terrace wasn't even furnished and had a view of railings and a wall. It was like a prison, dark and claustrophobic. On opening the wardrobe I found four hangers. Obviously this room was not designed for a couple staying for 14 nights. After a lengthy discussion with the receptionist the next morning we agreed to pay 110 euros in cash, credit card not accepted, to upgrade to a sea view room on the 5th floor. What a difference! The view was spectacular and there was a large balcony with 2 chairs. The room and the bathroom were very dated, but clean, comfortable and functional. We found all staff to be friendly and helpful. A special thanks to the restaurant staff who all looked after us very well. We quickly found the hotel bar which is frequented by locals and spent a lot of time there. Great food and drink at great prices and superb staff. The only downside to our stay was the lukewarm or even cold food in the restaurant. It was such a shame as there was good quality and variety, for dinner anyway. It could so easily be fixed by providing hot plates and a microwave for the use of diners, as we have experienced in other buffet restaurants. If you want a late checkout it costs 50 euros and they want this in cash. Luckily they let us settle our bar bill with a credit card! I would recommend this hotel if you can get it for a good price and if you are prepared to pay for a sea view.

Room Tip: Sea view room with balcony on a high floor.

The hotel itself is good place to stay, clean, with quite good food in the restaurant. You only should be careful about the choice of a room - we've received the one with the view on the space closed by walls of the hotel, so there was no sun at all, it was not a problem for us, since we've only slept there, but it’s worth noting. If you want to get to the beach you must walk a lot of stairs, which can be a problem and the city is not close, so it's rather a place for young, healthy people.
There are also tracks on on the other side of a fence, so trains make a significant noise sometimes.
An amazing advantage is a cafe downstairs - you have to check the Cannolo Siciliano and small, tasty pistachio cakes.

Room Tip: Beware of the rooms with a view on the walls.
