Very well run boutique hotel. They kindly ungraded us to a villa with an amazing terrace and deck. Very comfortable accommodations with sitting room. Two baths and bedroom. Views were mesmerizing. Service was prompt and friendly. Swimming platform on rocky shoreline offered crystal clear waters. Nice pool on upper level. Breakfast buffet was included and it was varied and fresh. Did not get to the fine dining on site but other guests raved about it. Short walk to town and many options for drinks and dining. Would highly recommend .

Part of this hotel is new and lovely, but most of it is older and worn. This does not come through in the photos but the reef club area is tired and the lovely beach scenes are not a reality. I did not see any of the lovely loungers or chairs set up in those areas. The club area restaurant is very good but the main dining tries to be ambitious and it is an overreach. Be aware that there are two classes of rooms on the property both 4 and 5 star. We stayed in a 4 star room for 400 euros a night. Sadly, this was barely a 3 star shabby room and we were supposedly upgraded. Much to our chagrin, right before check out we found that many of the guests were paying the same price for a 5 star room that we were paying for our extremely shabby room. There were a lot of specials going on. When we complained we were told it was our fault because we had paid online.....through the hotel's website. Go figure. We are not newbies to travel and we spent 4 weeks throughout Italy in mostly 5 star but some 4 star hotels. This one was one of our worst even experiences.

Dear Traum_10, Thank you for your review. We are truly sorry to acknowledge that your stay did not satisfy your expectations. Kindly note that you could check the pictures uploaded online by our guests, for instance on Google or Instagram to verify that our own pictures reflect the reality, and that the lovely sunloungers and chairs are there and much appreciated by our guests, so we do not understand what you are referring to. We are glad for your nice words on our Calette Reef Restaurant, while we are sorry to hear that our fine dining restaurant did not meet your taste. As for the structure of our resort, on our website it is clear that Le Calette is made of two complexes: Le Calette Garden & Bay (4*) and Le Calette N5 (5*). We are sorry to hear that you did not like your 4* room, but please consider that the rating and the price of the rooms take also into consideration the included services of our resort, such as 24/7 reception, 4 beaches, gym, swimming pool and jacuzzi, shuttle service etc. Kindly note that through our website we guarantee the best rate available online with respect to any online travel agency and that our booking office reserves the right to apply any temporary promotion at any time. In any case, you reserved a Standard Room which is the entry-level room of our 4-star complex and therefore the less expensive room of our entire resort. You also chose the Book Now rate which is the most convenient one. On this room no promotion was applied at the time of your stay. Indeed, it was still the less expensive one even with respect to other typologies of room which had a promotion applied. We would be grateful if you could share with us some more details about what you were told so that we can demonstrate that you still had the best rate which is available exclusively for reservations via our website. By booking on our official website, you were granted the best possible rate and this is why our staff could have never told you that you had made a mistake. It was a pleasure for us having you as our guests and we hope to welcome you again soon so that you might fully enjoy your stay with us. Gaia and the entire Team of Le Calette

5-star service, amenities, property. Service. They remembered our names and room number by the end of the first day. Everyone was unfailingly polite and welcoming. All spaces spotlessly clean and well maintained. The fancier of the two restaurants, Cala Luna, had what seemed to be two managers, both very genteel and generous with their attentiveness and little extras. Not a single failure of top service throughout. Amenities. Our only heads-up is that Le Callette leans more toward simplicity than grandeur. If you need a cavernous marble bathroom with all the latest fixtures, this isn’t your place. Functional is the word for the bathrooms, soaps, bed linens, etc. Both restaurants are great (the spaghetti and clams at the less formal restaurant is magical), but one dinner at Cala Luna is worth it. Michelin-quality meals with unobstructed views of the sea. Property. To American ears, “Le Callette” sounded French, but it’s Italian for “the coves.” This was by far the most spectacular part of the expedience. There’s a very well maintained pool area with a beautiful view and another area with big beds right on the sea, but what they call their “rocky beach”—bring water shoes—is their showstopper. Many little nooks that you’ll sometimes have all to yourself, except for an urchin here or there, with nooks to wade through and exceptional views through the rocks out to the sea…truly postcard perfect.

Le Calette was full for the week so we stayed at their sister hotel.... A lot of hype about Le Calette's refurbishment and we were able to experience the hotel thanks to the reciprocal arrangements with their other hotel.... I loved the staff ... they are all making a huge effort BUT the management needs to focus on details.... service can be slow.... the Reef Club staff are rally doing great work BUT if you are spending $500-$1000+++ per night you want service at club loungers/sunbeds .... I also feel its a lost revenue situation when you have to get up and walk to the bar area at the Reef Club to order or re-order drinks.... Food at the bar area of the Reef Club was 'ok' but the chap working the bar sensational... really doing a great job! The young lady and manager ( Red Shirt ) also doling all they can but you need more staff if you have a full space with guests..... Huge potential but some tired aspects ... To Cala Luna Restaurant .. it was really special.... Sensational venue ... each dish was spectacular on the tasting menu and the wine pairing lovely.... Each staff member is trying REALLY hard and they were so attentive and caring.... My real concern is the mosquito's .. you will be bitten silly so keep that in mind... it almost spoilt our evening .. the hotel needs to address this.... because of the outside settings / gardens its very uncomfortable .... When you are spending serious money on dinner and wines I also expected 'one' of the two restaurant managers ( two were evident as they had a journalist or someone special they were fawning after two tables away ) to engage with guests .... the one manager was charming saying hello but his english not the best and he never approached us or any other table again.... if this hotel wants international guests thats a must..... Also if you are spending nearly Euro 200 in a wine pairing ( and the wines were insanely good ) I would like a sommelier to tell us about the wines..... but again all the staff were very focused like the chef and managers to one table...... the lovely young wine waiter did his best and I truly admired his efforts. This was an expensive meal and we thought worth it... the chef and his team are doing a great job! It could be really special BUT needs some real attention if you are going to charge these prices...... touches and details could be better .... but I sensed its still finding its way... the food and wines I thought were just sensational but its those finer details that will make this a truly spectacular experience ..... No guests want to see the chef coming out and fawning after a wine journalist and both managers doing the same while other guests look on - every guest should be given the same attention... I have to say this hotel is making a real effort ... the staff really impressed me other that than the two managers evident in Cala Luna but its a lovely spot.....

Exceeded our expectations, in awe of the location and view each day of our stay. The service was outstanding and the food to match. If you are looking for a true resort to relax and recharge the batteries this is the place. The Old Town of Cefalu is close by and very enjoyable to walk around, shop and dine. I can't say enough good things about our stay, it was the last 3 days of a 2 week Italy journey and we ended it on a high. Thanks again to the staff at Le Calette, you all do a magnificent job.

Outstanding stay! This is my second time staying at the resort. The restaurant has raised the bar on exceptional Sicily fare. Dine outdoors for breakfast and dinner overlooking the beautiful sea. The Reef club and pool areas provide great service and full menus. It is quiet, peaceful and relaxing. The Spa provides an extensive list of services that are well provided. There are three separate buildings providing accommodations. The main building, the Gardens and the Bay. Rooms are modern, clean, spacious and utilize great AC units. I will return.
