“Sicilian dream”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

We used TripAdvisor when we decided to choose Astro Suite for our summer holiday. So we already knew that it is a good hotel and we had high expectations.

And it was even better than that...
It's not just about the building, The hotel is almost new, the apartments are big, everything is very clean and the rooms very cozy. Plus they have a beautiful sea&town-view.
It's not just about the location, either. the hotel is practically on the beach (sandy beach which is also very good, and the sunbeds are included in the cost of apartment) and very close to the old town.

....It's about the people. All the staff is absolutely great, polite and always smiling. Including the owner. And Giovanni is the cherry on the top. He is everything you wish, as a tourist, to have by your side in your vacation. Due to him and his colleagues, our 14 days in Sicily were perfect.

Thanks again, Giovanni,
Alexandra, Cristina and Alex salute you!

We stayed the last 2 weeks in June 2014. The hotel is excellent, staff are very helpful and friendly. When we arrived the staff were there to welcome us and help everyone get settled in their rooms, explaining everything we needed to know. The small thing they did like making sure there was bottled water in the room (the supermarket closed at 1pm on Sunday's) and the insect repellents they supplied, the beach towels and other small touches really made you feel welcome. There was no extra charge for the Aircon or the safe. We had a room right at the front and it looked out onto the beach - it was beautiful and kept spotlessly clean by the friendly cleaning staff. The breakfast was excellent and plentiful and everything was fresh the waitresses kept everything fully stocked and nothing was to much trouble - this goes for all the staff who work there. It certainly lived up to it's "Small and friendly" and I would even say exceeded it!!! It is the best Hotel I have ever stayed in. Lisa the Thomsons rep at the hotel was superb, very friendly and helpful and a credit to Thomsons - Lisa supplied us with all the bus/train times for exploring round and about and could answer most questions (if she did not know the answer she would find out and let us know).
Cefalu is a lovely town and everyone is polite, it has a beautiful beach and harbour (used in the film Cinema Paradiso). There are some very good restaurants in the town serving good food.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone, it certainly is first class!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are of the same high standard - the rooms right at the front on floors 1 & 2 have best...

This review is late, but better late than never. We travelled twice to Cefalu in 2012 (July and October) and stayed here on both occasions. Cefalu has a beautiful beach and the town is so quaint and people are polite. Our trips to Cefalu were always impromptu/quite unplanned, and the reservation desk was so prompt and polite in trying to accommodate our room requests via email.
Upon arrival both times to the hotel, we met with the hotel owner, always polite, smiling and friendly towards myself, husband and two kids.
The hotel room is minimalist design and very clean, and quite large by European standards and each room is equipped with a full service kitchenette. Parking is not a problem because they have their very own private parking garage underground.
They provide beach towels for the beach or pool(they have access and passes for the lido across the street and will provide you passes for two lounge chairs and an umbrella.) Pool is small but very clean and we enjoyed both the pool and beach very much.
Breakfast was a typical European breakfast with eggs, bread, cereal and fruits. My favorite is always Italian meats and cheeses in the morning which they had a great selection of, and the option to enjoy your breakfast on their outdoor rear patio.
I'd definitely come back to Astro Suite the next time we make our way back to Sicily.

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean.

the hotel certainly lived up to its "small and friendly" title .When we arrived the young lady on reception took us to our room and explained all we needed to know she was delightful and all the rest of the hotel staff were just as lovely helpful and friendly for the whole of our stay.Rooms were excellent kept spotlessly clean and really spacious with everything you could need and good storage space.Breakfast was really nice and being able to sit outside if you wanted to was lovely.Good choice of continental breakfast items really fresh bread croissants fruit cereals etc.Pool was small but perfectly adequate and the beach was so near and private to the hotel which was nice if you like to go on the beach.The location was perfect close to the shops bars restaurants lots of nice places to eat.All in all a perfect choice for us can highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms have a sea view but some also have pool view rather than side view which are better.

Really, really happy with our stay at this hotel. Staff is fantastic. The rooms (with two balconies, comfy beds and everything else you'll need really) were kept clean every day by very service-minded and understanding staff (we have a toddler who sometimes were asleep in the room at the time for cleaning - absolutely no problems for them to come back later). Location is perfect, sunbeds and towels included and the beach is just across the road. What really impressed me about this hotel though, was the management. The owner is _always_ present and he is always kind, helpful and smiling. We were quite a large group staying at the hotel and two of us needed medical care during our stay. For our toddler it was arranged to have the doctor (who is also the owners wife and just as lovely) coming to the hotel not less than three times. Our toddler was given a little cuddly toy when we left (she loves it now! ;) Fantastic. We felt very looked after. We will be back for sure.

Last summer I decided to spend my holidays in Sicily. The vacation started awfully. On the first day I fainted in the bathroom in the hotel room and hurt my eyebrow. Probably the reason was a difficult indirect flight.
I wanted to thank all hotel staff - from maid to hotel owner. They showed incredible kindness care and sincere affection.
After the accident all my clothes we're cleaned, breakfast was brought for me to my room for several following days - absolutely free (!).
The hotel owner drove my family by his car to the hospital and back. More than that he spent 6 hours (!) with my family in the hospital in case if they need help. His wife - a doctor - examined me on the next day, she gave me some very useful advice.
Thanks to the hotel staff my holidays weren't spoiled.
Special thanks to Natasha!
In regard to the hotel I must say that it is very clean and cosy. Rooms are very comfortable and spacious.We liked breakfast - everything was very tasty and it seems to you that you are having breakfast at home.
Location is great - different cafe, restaurants, bars and supermarkets are near.
Excellent correlation of price and quality.
I want to with all the best to the hotel and all of its staff.

Wonderful hotel. Our room was lovely and spacious. Brill views, Two lovely balconies, we took chairs from the room to place on one of the balconies which was empty. Lots of storage, though drawers rather than shelves would have been more useful. Rooms cleaned every day, and towels replaced when needed, which was a good idea, rather than every few days like in most hotels. Would have appreciated a mirror in the bedroom rather than a TV.!!
Breakfast was very very good. (not so for the waistline)
In whole - the owner, staff and Lisa were spot on!!!!!
A pool bar serving food would be a plus.
Negative was that our air conditioning developed an unpleasant smell (vegetables) on the last day, which meant that we suffered that day and night, Air freshener was provided.

Room Tip: ground floor rooms not so good for view
