Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Baia del Capitano has a great Mediterranean style throughout and a laid back atmosphere. It's located in the Bay of Mazzoforno, just four kilometres away from the historical centre of Cefalu. From its elevated position you get views over the sea towards the picturesque town.

The rooms are decorated in a typical Sicilian style and offer plenty of comfort and modern amenities - most have 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 want – there’s plenty on offer for everyone. You can relax by the pool, where you can keep your glass topped up with 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 lots 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 is a charming seaside town with a lovely historical centre that's filled with stunning architecture, restaurants and bars. 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.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 10 mins by private car from Palermo airport.

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.


Pool & Beach

The pool at Hotel Baia del Capitano has plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas and a whirlpool section. A pool bar offers drinks a light lunches throughout the day. 

The hotel has a large private beach in the Bay of Mazzaforno that's around 400 metres away. Here, from around mid May to mid October, you'll find sun loungers and umbrellas that you can use for free, and soft sands that gently slope into the sea. The hotel provides beach towels for a €2 deposit. There's also a shuttle service that runs to and from the beach - so you wont have to walk in the heat of the day.
