The hotel is a collection of buildings in a beautifully rugged Mediterranean location.
The location is 6 km from Cefalu and so I chose (having arrived by taxi - 15 euro each way) to fully enjoy the residence as a 'retreat' and swim regularly, and potter along the pebble and shale beach where there is also a 'drinks and snack shack'. I booked a single room and perhaps, as I understand it, the only single room. The ambiance is very very basic, with a bed, chair, small fridge, side table and two 'shutters', one creatively used as a desk, the other as a 'wardrobe'. In fairness the room was adequate for my stay of 3 days, but most certainly of a minimum standard. Likewise the bathroom with a very small shower space, but again adequate, and basic. I did not see the other larger rooms, and hence cannot give an opinion. Perhaps the place is in need of more care and attention to detail. The two guys who manage the place assumed responsibility for breakfast, guest relations, payments for food, and all else in between. Flowers on the Reception desk were dying on my arrival and dead on my departure. I wondered when they would be refreshed. These small details reflect a more general need for a 'polish' on several fronts. Exception is the gleaming and very polished pool.
