Following a short flight followed by an easy transfer, We were given the warmest welcome by Barq and the G.O. team. Our luggage had already been taken in true Club Med efficiency and was waiting for us along with a delicious plate of food in case we arrived hungry.
The accommodation is beautiful whether you choose superior rooms in low 2 storey buildings or stay in The Villettas (little wooden villas set amongst the natural rock in the gardens are stunning. Each Villetta has a sea view or garden view and a personal balcony with loungers outside as well as comfortable seating inside.
The exquisite bathroom has a stand along bath with a substantial separate shower and toilet facilities. As ever Club Med provides everything one needs for one’s personal care.
The luxury bed is beyond comfortable, and however tempting it is just to relax in your own personal space, the rest of the village is just as stunning. One has a choice of walking to the La Rocca (the main all-inclusive restaurant) or calling for a golf cart. The G.O.’s (Club Med staff) arrive quickly and are all charming and delighted to chat and tell you the best places to go during you visit.
The choice of sumptuous dishes is too vast to describe. Italian inspire food at its’ very best with choices of meat, fish vegetables fresh salads, pasta, and if that isn’t enough, the most beautiful deserts and fresh fruit and choices of ice cream daily. The wine is of an excellent quality, and you have the choice of red, white, or rose at every meal along with still or sparkling water. The dining room staff are charming, attentive, and helpful.

The scenery at at Cefalù is breath taking from every angle whether you are strolling up to the Zen pool area, playing tennis or enjoying the activities and swimming at the main pool. We took some great walks down to the sea and enjoy refreshing swims in the clear water from the easy access purpose-built pontoons and swam over to the sandy beach. The choices are endless.
