- Free shuttle service to Cefalù's centre
- A range of sporting activities available for guests
A stay at the Baia del Capitano would be an all-round relaxing experience for any guest, whether that be a couple on a romantic holiday or a family seeking fun-based activities for their children. Located in the sun-filled bay of Mazzaforno, (approx. 4km from Cefalù's historical centre) it doesn’t take long to be fully immersed in the normalities of the local way of life, and with the private beach a mere 400 metres from the hotel, it would only seem right to sink yourself into the sun-absorbed sand and order a refreshing beverage from the conveniently placed beach bar. If guests prefer a quieter scene then they can recline by the pretty pool area, under the shade of the olive groves. In the evening, choose to dine in either the indoor or outdoor garden Kefale restaurant, where the chef will tantalise your palate with a menu full of traditional Mediterranean dishes.
There’s plenty to keep the kids entertained too, with a host of activities made available, including the free use of the Tennis courts and Table Tennis, as well as the hiring of bicycles, quad bikes and more unique experiences such as Scuba diving lessons and personal training sessions.
Guestrooms at the Baia del Capitano are enriched with character and split between two parts of the property, with some providing views to the lush gardens and others with the customary, but highly sought after outlook to the Mediterranean Sea.
The hotel has 46 rooms (official rating 4 star). Minimum of 5 nights in high season (between end of July and August).

Me and my wife stayed here 2 nights, they favor the Europeans, the breakfast was so so the reception desk was not helpful and when they were speaking to you and a person speaking Italian came up they would put you aside and help them, the beach is not close by and they don't let you know that the shuttle has a limited seating, unlike what their website says, they only offer there beach shuttle to Europeans, they told us we could walk there not too far but fail to say it's all uphill on the way back. The only bright side of our stay the bartender was helpful when we asked him questions. If you want to use the pool you have to pay a deposit for the towels and the return credit takes about a week, and you have to pay the deposit for every towel every time you want one.
So my advise to especially Americans look elsewhere.

A home away from home at the beautiful Hotel 'Baia del Capitano' Cefalu, Sicily. An amazing, relaxing place in the countryside, with a pool area, tennis court, a beautiful walk to sandy and rocky beaches. It's restaurant service is friendly, yet so professional. The food is divine, done with great care and passion. It is just the perfect place to get away for a few days. Thank you so much for a lovely summer start of 2021..... I highly recommend.
