We stayed at Hotel Kalura the final evening of a two week stay in Sicily. This was a splurge hotel for us and we were not disappointed. The hotel has a resort feel to it as it is just outside Cefalu central, and has all the amenities of a resort. The rooms are amazing, the private beach is perfect, and the dining room has a beautiful view of the sea. The staff is courteous, and speak very good English. I especially appreciated the free parking. We will definitely stay here again when visiting the beautiful city of Cefalu.

JUST BOOK IT!!! You will not be disappointed.
Cefalu town has super restaurants, fine shops and some of the best Gelato in Sicily.

A typical resort offering holidays in Cefalu. It is on its eastern part, a 30 min walk from the town. It enjoys a privileged access to a nice beach at Kalura bay. The facilities are a bit 80s. The rooms are basic, no thrills, a bit worn out. Poor breakfast (especially if you stay there several days). Nothing special.

I've just returned from a holiday in Sicily, where I spent my first 2 nights at this hotel in Cefalu. The hotel is beautiful and we were upgraded to a better room for free of charge. The room we were given was a family room which was clean and had the necessary facilities, my only slight criticism is that the air con did not seem powerful enough for the entire room. The hotel grounds are exceptional, with a perfect large swimming pool and some really breath taking views. I found the staff really helpful and cheery and the breakfast was amazing, with such a great choice of food.

I have travelled to a number of hotels in Europe, the US and Asia and can honestly say that this is one of the best and I will definitely return.

Access to the beach was a real positive for me as it gave me a chance to practice my snorkelling skills and was a nice way to end the day.

I found the staff really friendly especially Angelo the waiter, I only wish that we tried the food in the hotel as the vista was wonderful.

It is a walk into town and on a hot day it seemed quite a walk, but on our way back we got a taxi for €10.

This hotel has excellent facilities and a good sized car park at the front. The main hotel is built on top of a rock outcrop and overlooks the bays in either direction. We stayed in a room called Lipari which is situated beneath the main hotel and off the steps down to the private beach. This location gave us a feeling of privacy and peace and quiet.
The room was very generous in size with a very large double bed in an area that could be separated from the rest of the room by a curtain. There was also a double sofa bed that could also be used. As well as the fridge there were two rings that could be used to heat food.
The bathroom was also very pleasing.
Breakfast was provided in the main part of the hotel with an option to sit outside on the terrace if you wanted to. All tastes were catered for on a buffet style but there were no shortages of food.
We walked into Cefalu each evening which took about 30 minutes. We would have hopped on a bus to return but the last one leaves Cefalu at 8.30 pm however there were no shortage of taxis that cost 10 euros.
The private beach was stunning for swimming with options to hire a canoe or scuba diving.
The only negative thing I can say is that at lunchtime the staff in the bar need some help as it takes far to long to get a drink or a snack.
We stayed for 3 nights and both felt sad to leave and wished we had booked longer at this hotel.

Room Tip: Lipari is excellent

We spend really unforgetable time in the hotel. Hotel is located on beautifull rocks a bit otside Cefalu but due to that it is really quite. There is a small private beach but You have to walk there by stairs so I would say that hotel is suitable for romantic vacation or weekend and so convienient for families with children. Views from the rooms and hotel's terraces are incredible beautifull. If You are hungry I would rather reccomend to find some small family run restaurant in center of Cefalu although hotel's cuisine is not bad. Staff is very nice and helpful. The only small problem is Italian breakfast.

Room Tip: Take a room with sea view from the beach side.

Booked hotel for 2 nights during a week long trip in Sicily
The hotel is conveniently located and easy to get to the city and beach is nice
The rooms are a little dated and hotel seems to cater to larger groups but rooms and hotel are clean and well kept
The service level needs some help, the reception staff is anything but helpful, get the feeling they would rather be elsewhere, dont expect much help here
