Nice Property - Loads of Stairs
The Blue Bay is a lovely property with a private bay about a 20-minute walk uphill from Cefalú town center. Each unit is equipped with a small kitchenette and private patio overlooking the (rocky) beach below, and AC is also available. Note - this is more of a vacation rental property, NOT a hotel. Check-in takes place in the parking lot area and there is a small bar adjacent with oftentimes only one person overseeing both. Breakfast is served from 8-10am, but there are otherwise no other hotel "amenities" (restaurant or otherwise) to speak of besides housekeeping so make sure you plan ahead and load up on groceries/water/etc accordingly as needed. The beach bar I had read about in reviews is closed for the season. There is no elevator, only stairs (great workout!), so I would definitely take this into account if you are considering staying here. Make sure you request beach towels at check-in because otherwise you will be left to climb some 200 steps from the beach if you forget to do so beforehand. Overall nice property if here for an extended stay with family. For shorter stays or smaller groups, I would suggest a hotel more centrally located.

Amazing place to stay with great views and the private beach is A+++. The only thing I'll say is if you're in a building that has two separate units, you may be able to hear everything the people in the unit say (or do).

4/10 Fair

Don’t bother
This hotel was utilitarian, overpriced, and lacked any charm. The staff wasn’t very helpful. Beach was nice, but Cefalu in general was a disappointment. I’ve traveled to many Greek islands and the Amalfi coast/Ischia. I wouldn’t waste my time here. Even though Rick Steves raves about Cefalu, Taromina is a much better option. Beaches in Agrigento were much nicer.

Great location, basic rooms
Location is amazing, but rooms are very basic in particular the bathrooms. Great to have access to the private beach, very relaxing quiet cove.
