“Fabulous Hotel”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Loved it! Great room, fabulous shower. So close to the beach and a short walk to the centre of the old town. Brilliant stay. Only small problem was the wifi didn't work in the room as had to go to foyer.

Good friendly hotel - our room was simply the best - a suite above reception with a very sunny balcony overlooking the beach. Easy stroll into the historic centre and lovely and quiet despite the beach road in front. Plus an excellent power shower.

1 area for improvement. - Wifi is a headache. You get a maximum 5 hours at a stretch then the password expires.. For non residents the hotel still charges for wifi - a slightly archaic practise in 2014 with 4g about to take over! It was inconvenient to keep asking reception for a new password.

Other than this a very good hotel and friendly staff

Room Tip: Get the west facing one above reception

This was our second stay at Villa Gaia, Cefalu in October 2013. The location is perfect, quiet but just an approx km walk to the beach and the old area. We made full use of the vouchers provided to us by the hotel, providing free access to their area of the beach each day of our stay. There's also several great restaurants a stone's throw away along the beach front.
The hotel is fastidiously clean, and any requests were promptly & efficiently sorted. We thought the breakfast provided was excellent, and they were happy to provide an early breakfast when our son & daughter in law had to leave first thing in the morning.

Room Tip: Watch out for mosquitoes. Make sure you have the windows closed at night.

We stayed in the B & B Villa Gaia Hotel in Cefalù Italy on Sept 21st and 22nd of 2013. We had a car so it was important for us to find a nice hotel that was within walking distance to the old part of the city and had parking close to the Hotel. You don't want to drive in the old city center of Cefalu; streets are narrow and filled with lots of tourists.

This Hotel was a gem. The balcony from our room was overlooking the sea and within short walking distance to beaches and a little longer walk to the city center. Hotels staff was very nice, room was very clean, quite and spacious. Parking was right next to the hotel in a secured parking area. Breakfast was very good and they made a fantastic cappuccino coffee.

We both enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay at this hotel again if we ever have the opportunity of visiting Cefalù again. After traveling through Italy for twenty days this was definitely one of our better finds and at a reasonable cost.

Hotel is situated at end of beach strip in Cefalu. Clean hotel with very friendly staff. Breakfast choice is very average for price charged for B&B. Good size bedroom and bathroom - both very clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: Suites at front of hotel have good balconies overlooking street and sea.

I come to Cefalu' every summer and Villa Gaia is by far the best option for short and long stay. People working there are extremely nice and helpful, hotel is perfectly located, in front of the sea and few minutes walking from the historical centre... Hotel is clean, rooms are very big and quiet. Highly recommended.

Super-large bedroom and bathroom. Private terrace. Quiet comfort in spite of being on the main road along the sea front. Really good breakfast in a spacious, pleasant breakfast room. The staff was very helpful. After they explained we were parked in a ticketing zone, he moved our car for us.
