“Very polite hotel at the terrible beach”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

Although we booked a room in the older Garden hotel, we were accomodated in a newer Athene Palace which was very pleasant finding later on :-)

The hotel is a very good 4* hotel standard. Very polite staff. Most visitors came from Italy and France which made an overall atmosphere even nicer. Room was large enough and quiet (n.1283), well maintained, minibar filled in every two days. We had two small problems (balcony door and wardrobe) but surprisingly it was immediately fixed during our dinner still on the first day.

Food was good as everywhere in Italy but breakfasts were nearly same everyday with lower quality of bread. Non-alcoholic drinks were clear weakness - artificial, too sweet, fake coke. Coffee was excellent, even in pool bar.

Very nice and large garden with good sport facilities. You can put sun beds on the grass. Three pools are ok too, very convenient for small children. Animation team (incl. 6 Slovak girls) involved many people in daily sport activities (zumba, aqua aerobic) and evening dancing. However, late evening animation performances were a little bit boring.

Overall, the hotel quality is very good and perfectly fits 4* standard. So, I would even recommend to come here and stay but be sure that the beach is really bad here (narrow, rocky, not very clean water, water shoes necessary) and there is also nothing within 2-3km from the hotel - just dirty street very close to the noisy road to Cefalu city.

Wonderful hotel. Delicious and varied food and helpful staff. Room was large and clean. Pool and beach area were well taken care of. Beautiful beach view and plenty of chairs for sunbathing. Lobby and bar area were spacious. Always an English speaking hotel staff member to assist us,

Thoroughly enjoyed stay here. Lots of space very clean, spacious hotel in every way. Food was excellent and lots of choice. Cannot really fault it, as had read about location, so knew it was via a shuttle bus to the town. If I have to give it a negative review it would be wi-fi should be complimentary to guests throughout their stay.

Excellent staff, spotlessly clean room, food mediocre and not consistent. Choice limited, however, Chefs seemed to push the boat out when a conference was being held ! Hotel room was spacious and had great sea view (probably best I've ever had) Hotel more family orientated, not really suitable for couples wanting peace and quiet and a child and nappy free pool to swim in. Entertainment basic but suitable for young children. Hotel is in need of a revamp and looks tired. Hotel situated in the middle of nowhere, shuttle bus service was poor - if you want to use this service you are out for the full day, however, Cefalou is worth a visit - fabulous beach. Corleoni trip excellent although a fairly long day trip given the length of time it takes to get to Corleoni. Hotel worth what you pay, but terribly disappointment I'm afraid. We found the air conditioning very good as a lot of folk have been critical about this and we found no problem with it. Hotel Reps, Luke and Lisa - lovely couple and very helpful - no complaints. Overall I would rate the holiday 7/10 - it was satisfactory and there is definitely room for improvement. Cannot fault any of the staff - they worked extremely hard and were exceptionally polite and courteous. I think the most disappointing thing was the food, location and lack of any decent entertainment. A week was more than enough.

Excellent Hotel, with great food and facililties. Unfortunately the state of the surroundings and beaches are not reflected. Dangerous and dirty beach, piles of rubbish of all kinds left on roads and pavements. Not a place for walking out of the Hotel grounds. To visit other bars restaurants etc. a hire car was necessary. Location not a good one. Thomson flight was adequate, but no food left for inboard flight.

Super hotel. Very attentive & friendly staff. Meals in both buffet restaurant, pizzeria and a la carte were excellent. Bedrooms good and cleaned every day with a well stocked complimentary mini fridge. Foyer and terrace communal areas were v clean, stylish and great for drinks and card playing! occasionally, good live music. 2 good outdoor pools kept immaculate and clean - 1 more noisy than the other due to loud music for the activities. Lots of space in the hotel grounds, so you could always find a sunbed somewhere, even if not in your chosen area. Good trips available via Thomsons. Would thoroughly recommend the trip to Taormina & Etna, even though quite expensive. Alex, the Italian guide on the coach was very informative and spoke excellent English. Very enjoyable holiday.

Room Tip: Sea view to be recommended and even the top floor is not that high, so you get a better view.

Nothing much to say that too wrong with this hotel. Fantastic room on the end so we had the Sid e balcony as well as the sea balcony. Staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the whole stay. Cleanliness of the hotel was perfect. Meals in the buffet were great and they also put on a couple of themed nights. Try the milso burgers. Be brave its only cooked spleen but its super tasty. Take the bus into Cefalu and try wandering the streets or jump on the train and go into palermo. Overall had a great time. Ps thanks to simone for the tennis match.
