Reviewed 25 October 2013

This hotel is really well located close to the town and the beach. Staff are friendly and the rooms clean. We had two very small rooms though so I suggest you specifically request larger rooms. There are no tea or coffee facilities in the room and no complimentary bottles of water. Breakfast is basic. The parking station outside of the town is not an issue however be aware it shuts from 1-5 pm. W didn't know this so it was a stressful arrival. Once you contact the hotel they send a taxi to collect you.

Room Tip: As for a big room

My family and I just returned from Cefalu and I am happy to report that this town and hotel was the perfect choice for us. La Plumeria is conveniently located, rooms were clean, staff very helpful and breakfast each morning was a plus. We have vowed to return. My only criticisms: improve on the purchase of towels/felt like sandpaper and parking is a nuisance. Overall, I gave this hotel an excellent rating and we would not hesitate to recommend.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Perfect location - in the middle of the main street, so you are sorrounded with restaurants, shops etc.
The area had some problems with the water, so we didn't have any water the first night. It was fixed sometime after breakfast the next morning. Not ideal, but since it wasn't for longer, it went okay.
The breakfast in Italy usually consists of sweets/different cakes. They had some bread and cheese/ham, but quite boring.
The hotelroom was on the 3.rd floor. The room was over two levels, with the bed on the "ground floor". Nice terrace.

Room Tip: We had room on the 3.rd floor. You must walk some stairs both to get the room, and inside the room.

We stayed here for three nights in July 2013 and loved the place! The entrance is very discrete and reception area modern and inviting - the location is also brilliant, 2 mins from cathedral square, 5-7 to the beach and 15 from the marina... All very easy walks.

They have also done a 20% discount deal with the two nearest beach clubs which is great although they are very busy unsurprisingly at this time of year and it is extremely hot, I think 37 degrees Celsius on one day!

We had room 204 which is very big and has two ensuite shower rooms which was great but as a note of caution, this room is so big that the air conditioner really struggles as it is slightly small and so to chill the room you have to leave it on 24/7 and close the shutters to keep the sun out otherwise it gets very hot in here.

The staff and breakfast are lovely, wifi works v.well and although there is no pool on site we would not hesitate to recommend this hotel - you will not be disappointed so give it a go!

This was my husband and my last stop on our honeymoon and what a great way to end it! La Plumeria is a small boutique hotel that is in the perfect location in Cefalu. The staff was extremely helpful & friendly. We were upgraded to a room with a balcony overlooking the street and a bottle of red wine was waiting for us upon our arrival.

The room itself was very spacious and clean, as well as the ensuite bathroom. We had a very comfortable stay and loved being able to open up the doors to the balcony to listen to the sounds of the town at night. We enjoyed a bottle of wine while we people-watched.

Be prepared for a bit of a tricky parking situation, as the parking lot for the hotel is located in another section of town and can be difficult to find due to the one way streets. Though, we had no issue at all, once we found the parking lot, we rang reception and a van very quickly to wind us through the tiny streets of Cefalu that the hotel is located on (this is why parking needs to be in another section of town). Just plan ahead by finding the location on a map before you get to Cefalu and you'll be fine.

Breakfast was OK, quite average, but we would recommend taking advantage of it as it allows to get on with your day and plan for a bigger lunch and/or dinner.

Again, the location of La Plumeria is amazing. You're right in the middle of the beautiful, historic downtown Cefalu and what an amazing town to be in the center of. You can step out the front door of the hotel and wander the cobblestone streets or be at the beach in minutes. Cefalu was our favorite city we visited in Sicily and La Plumeria made it perfect. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning a visit to Cefalu, it is THE place to stay!!

Room Tip: If you enjoy people-watching, book in advance and request a room overlooking the main street. The ba...

The good:
* Fantastic location. There is no way I would stay anywhere else than in the old town of Cefalu. I saw where the highest rated Cefalu hotel was located and I wouldn't trade locations for quids.
* Very friendly staff who are happy to help with suggestions for tourist sites.
* Wifi works very well.
* Bathroom is small but perfectly serviceable.
* Nice balcony overlooking quiet side street.
* Free parking (not in the old town because of traffic restrictions). They offer a service to drive you to and from the parking which was very easy to find.

The bad:
* Beds are small.
* Breakfast was too basic.
* Noise from doors banging during the night were enough to wake me from my sleep. Perhaps they could do something to prevent the banging of the doors.

Conclusion:
I would stay nowhere else if I ever came back to Cefalu. It's not a perfect hotel but the good things make it above average. I would rate it higher if they fixed the door banging problem and provided a few more options at breakfast.

The good impression started already before we arrived, with the information about the parking and the transfer to the hotel - which worked perfectly. The hotel is very well renovated and perfectly situated in the center of the old town, and at the same time only 5 minutes walk to a small beach. The room was large, nice and with a good view to the small streets and the atmosphere of Cefalu. The breakfast (very good selection) could be taken outside - a very nice start on the day.
