We eventually found the station and managed to buy the right tickets to the right place - but got on the wrong carriage and sat in the wrong seats. Lots of people set us right and off we went.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Alberi Del Paradiso Cefalu
My partner and I stayed at the Paridiso earlier this month and loved it. The hotel is located at the top of a steep hill but the location only added to the charm and was quieter than some of the city centre options.
Book a 'club' room and you will be very dissapointed. It's like a cell. And then when you ask for something better, even when the hotel is almost empty they start to add the Euros.
Even then it has no baths except in the suites and the shower in ou so calledr deluxe room was tiny.
Very noisy both day and night from the roads below and sirens from the hospital opposite.
Not great for the money.
Great hotel in Cefalu, Sicily
Very impressed with the hotel and staff at Hotel Gli Alberi Del Paradiso - would recommend it highly. Only down side is the walk to and from the beach/town centre is all uphill but I think the hotel provides a shuttle so that combats that - we decided to walk to and from to try to work off some of the beautiful meals we ate!
As my husband is studying Italian, it was with some intrepidation that I booked this hotel. We prefer to stay in the "heart" of italy self catering without the many problems hotels tend to bring. As this was a last minute holiday and not being able to find what we wanted further in town found Hotel Paridiso on web with reasonable rates for bed and breakfast. Looked pretty too.
A quiet retreat in Cefalu
The location of this hotel while hard to find a good walk from town is what makes it such a wonderful find. Sitting slightly above the town (a ten minute downward easy stroll but a harder climb on return) the hotel has wonderful views and is very quiet and peaceful which is a bonus when relaxing by the splendid pool.
The old town of Cefalu is easily reachable by a pleasant walk along the beachfront. But if you have mobility issues there are taxis readily available.
the only minus i would have about the hotel is the small size of the rooms ensuite bathroom, but to me that is a very minor thing as i don't spend my holiday in the bathroom! it was clean and well stocked so that's enough!
Smart, but out of the way
For a seaside resort this hotel is smart. The hotel has been recently refubished and the rooms are very clean and tidy. It is decorated in the "international hotel" style so don't expect character, except for the series of very nice terraces. It has a medium sized pool with 20 or so sunbeds.
The hotel is situated on the hillside at the back of the town and it is a bit of a treck to the beach and back. In particular the hotel's beach is quite a long way from town and the hotel and is not that good.
We enjoyed our stay at the Paradiso but were not bowled over.
Stayed 3 nights on a 4 night trip and it was lovely. It was still early season so too chilly to have the pool open or dine outside, but the gardens and terraces were lovely to look at and the main terrace a great place to see the sunset.
As most hotels in Cefalu close during the winter we were pleased to find the Hotel Paradiso. We were travelling by car and appreciated the ease of parking at its location on the outskirts of the town. It was a 15 minute walk to the centre of town and about 5 minutes to the beach. The hotel is new and its east facing rooms have a picture postcard view of Cefalu. The surrounding area is characterless, however. The buffet breakfast was a rather unappetising jumble of pastries. Overall we found the Paradiso fairly pricy but good for an out of season pit stop.
This hotel was great
We stayed at the Paradiso and found it to be a very comfortable and hospitable hotel. Although not in the old part of town, we had no trouble driving and parking by the beach (although we were there in off-season, and understand it is more crowded in the summer). The hotel staff were extremely gracious and helpful, and tolerant of our attempts to practice Italian. The rooms were clean and comfortable and large by European standards. I would not hesitate to stay at the Paradiso again or recommend it to friends.
Avoid this one
Checked out after the first night - this hotel looks good on the surface, but it is not worth the price. It is not convenient to town (up a steep road), but is still noisy at night, as the main road passes by just above the property. The rooms were clean and looked nice, but were extremely sterile, as was the rest of the hotel. Staff was either rude or barely competent. The restaurant is a disaster - food, service, ambiance are all pretty bad. Give this one a miss.
