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.
