“Nice view, but noisy and far from town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2009

We spent two nights here in May 2009. It was our least favorıte B&B during our 3 weeks in Sicily. It was SO far from town on winding, one lane roads, that you really didn't want to be driving home after dark. But there was a big sign in the kitchen saying that the kitchen was not avaılable for guest's use.

Usually, if you are not located in town, you get the advantage of quiet. But at the Atlantide, the sounds of the hıghway below reverberate through the hılls and make a lot of noıse all nıght.

Also, I don't know that Claudıo ıs cut out to run a B&B. When we arrıved, he ascertaıned our names, showed us the room, asked what tıme we wanted breakfast, and gave us the gate opener. But dıd not ıntroduce hımself tıll we asked hıs name, and dıdn't show us the map of Cefalu that was ın the room. We chased hım down the next day to ask where you could park legally ın Cefalu -- he answered the questıon and then left before we could ask another...

But ıt IS a lovely vıew.

We spent 2 nights in Atlantide. View from the terrrace was amazing, rooms simple, but clean, for brekfast we had rolls and croissants. Getting there is difficult without GPS or map.
Owner is friendly and speaks English. Good value for that price.

An excellent set of directions led us to this remote B&B situated high above Cefalu. The view from the large terrace is stunning. We especially appreciated the first floor location with no stairs to navigate. Our room was enormous and very comfortable. Gated, secure parking was another plus. We regretted that we had only one day to stay in this amazing location.

My wife and I stayed at the Atlantide for 4 nights as part of a driving holiday around Sicily. As other reviews have stated, the Atlantide is situated in an unbeatable hilltop position with lovely views of Cefalu and the coastline. Access to the Atlantide is via a winding hillside road but your driving/navigational skills will be fully rewarded with the views offered from the balcony. Our host Claudio made us welcome and our room/bathroom was clean with easy access to the balcony where we had breakfast. Cefalu is a lovely town with a beautiful Duomo combined with a wide choice of restaurants. It is on the main railway line to Palermo (about 47 minutes) an option which I would thoroughly recommend after experiencing first hand the driving standards in Palermo!
IThe mountains just inland from Cefalu offer some delightful walks together with some breathtaking scenery.
Overall the Atlantide provided an excellent value base which I would recommend to others.

We stayed here with our two children in April. If you want great views this is the place to come to. The views from the terrace are amazing. It was wonderful having breakfast on the terrace with such fantastic views. It's quite difficult to find so make sure you have your map with you but worth the narrow, winding roads to get to. The room was pretty basic and the heating did not work and the tv was set to an interesting channel that we could not change (not suitable for children!). It could do with some updating but was fine for us if a little chilly. Would still recommend.

We loved this place, the views are extraordinary. Our favourite memory is of going for an evening meal in Cefalu and then returning to the Atlantide, to sit on the super terrace with a drink and watch the twinkling lights of the town and harbour. It was so romantic, people pay a fortune for a secluded idyll in the Maldives, but this was in its own way just as good. Our host Claudio was so kind and helpful, and would always stop by for a chat, and has lots of local information to impart. It is a few miles away, and the drive up is very winding, but completely worth it, compared to the rather mediocre hotels near the beach. We will definitely go back and I can't wait.
