Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Baia del Capitano is a charming four-star property with a Mediterranean style throughout and a laid back atmosphere. It's located in the Bay of Mazzoforno, just 4 kilometres away from the historical centre of Cefalu and its elevated position means you can enjoy lovely views over the sea towards the picturesque town.

The guest rooms have been decorated in a typical Sicilian style and offer plenty of comfort and modern amenities - most enjoy views over the hotel's Mediterranean gardens but upgrades to a sea view are available for a supplement. Your time at the hotel can be as relaxing or active as you wish, with plenty on offer for everyone. Choose to relax by the pool, where you can enjoy refreshing drinks from the pool bar or lay back in the whirlpool, or head to the nearby private sandy beach where there are plenty of loungers (normally open mid June to mid September). There's a host of activities available, too including tennis, cycling and scuba diving (some activities are payable locally).

The centre of Cefalu is around a 15 minute drive away and local buses stop directly outside the hotel. This charming seaside town has a lovely historical centre that's filled with stunning architecture, restaurants and bars, ensuring visitors will have plenty to do and see. If you prefer to dine in the hotel, the Kefale Restaurant serves traditional Sicilian cuisine in a charming setting among the gardens, and the lobby bar provides the perfect excuse for a pre-dinner drink.

Cefalù is one of Sicily’s true delights; a charming historical town packed with places of interest and a fine, long sandy beach. Apart from the beach, the main attraction is the Norman cathedral, begun in 1131, which dominates the town and is decorated with glistening Byzantine mosaics. Once a traditional fishing village, the medieval centre is a maze of narrow streets where you can now find plenty of shops, restaurants and bars where you can sip a glass of Sicilian wine in the shade of a palm tree.

Inghams operate a telephone Rep service in Cefalù.
