We were met by a really nice girl who showed us around the place and handed us our key. The rooms are nice with everything you need for a few days stay or even a week. They had even left us fresh fruits on the table and pasta with sauce! Welcome to Sicily! They had aircondition in all the rooms...

This place cannot be faulted for the location and views . It's a short walk from town (note you will have to walk a tiny distance through a road but this is common in Italy). However on our last day we had the pleasure to neighbour really loud Russian youth which played music on the balcony and was laughing into...

Sergio T, Owner at Santa Barbara, responded to this review

Dear guest, i am sorry to hear that but i don't understand why a loud guest is something that matters in making a review about an accommodation, in fact from your comment it looks like it is the only thing that was bad about Santa Barbara. Maybe reporting the problem could have helped in solving it.

We stayed there October 2013 for 7 days. The apartment wasn't really that clean although the booklet inside the place said that the cleaners were not always professional cleaners - fair enough only the additional charge of €40 would suggested someone is getting well paid. The TV was tiny and don't expect many English speaking channels. The shower curtain was...

Dear Joe, we are very sorry if your experience wasn't pleasant but it would have been much better if you had talked to us explaining what was wrong. It is curious that you never reported anything during your stay and then write this review: Cleaning: it may happen that the cleaning lady make a mistake, but if you don't let...

Too far from town centre and the place is unmanned and empty. You will easily get a place in town centre with beach access for half the price. Rooms in the resudence are well equipped but dingy. Only makes sense for 4-5 people sharing the apartment. No nearby places to eat/drink. Avoid completely. Better still, avoid Cefalu and go to...

Dear guest, we are always very sorry when a customer isn't happy about his vacation by our structure, however i would like to point up a few inconsistent aspects in your review: 1) When somebody books an accommodation he should be aware about where he is gonna stay. You can't make a reservation without looking map or description and then...

We are an extended family group of 4 adults and 2 children. We have just spent a fantastic fortnight at Santa Barbara, Cefalu in apartment C (the largest of the apartments). On arrival at the property we were immediately struck by the gorgeous views of the Mediterranean and the mountain backdrop, especially given the ease of access into the beautiful...

We stayed for 6 days in the penthouse apartment and a had a great time! The house and the apartment is clean but somewhat dated. The equipment is quite simple, when it comes to utensils and silverware, and the furnitures are worn. The shower/bath-tub is uncomfy for anybody taller than 175cm because of the inclining ceiling in the bathroom. But...the...

We had a dreadful experience in Santa Barbara. We specifically asked for a ground floor apartment as we have three small boys and had previously other holiday apartments with balconies and felt we had to watch them all the time. The apartment wasn't really a ground floor one it was the same level as the pool but there were steep...

Dear guest, i'm sorry that you had a bad experience while staying by our structure, but it would be much more fair to explain that a great part of the problems can not be addressed to us. In fact your 3 kids have been extremely noisy and gave a terrible vacation to you (screaming "get out" all the time), and...

We stayed 2 wonderful weeks in Cefalu at Residence Santa Barbara. The location is very pleasant overlooking the ocean, the green hillsides and the majestic La Rocca! We had 3 (!) balconies and 2 bedrooms. The fridge and the oven was brand new and everything functioned great. There is a lovely pool and an outside kitchen with a washing mahine...

I would rate these apartments as 2/3 star. Its a small property of only 6/8. There is no on site parking but there was plenty of street parking outside.The location is reasonable - about a 10 min walk to town although uphill on the return and it was good to have a pool albeit it a relatively small one with...

We stayed there few nights in June. It was a nice place though we didn't have a car and had to walk to the village everyday. The trip did take only 10min or less so it was no problem. It was great to have a pool and a sea/mountain view from the balcony. The near-by grocery store had an amazing...
