With three pools, two restaurants and one private beach, the numbers really add up at this hotel.
This place neighbours the Fiesta Athenee Palace, and you can use the facilities at both hotels. The whole complex nudges up to a private patch of beach, where wooden bathing platforms lead you over the pebbles into the sea.
The Fiesta Garden Beach is surrounded by tropical gardens, and has a real away-from-it-all setting. The nearest shops and restaurants are in Campofelice di Roccella, around 10 minutes' drive away. And you can reach well-known Cefalu in 25 minutes.
Full Board buffet meals in main restaurant and weekly beach barbecue.
Tea and coffee 16.00-17.00. Select local and international alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Minibar with water and soft drinks in room, restocked every 2 days.
Snacks and ice-cream 10.00-18.00 during March, May, and from mid-October.
Featuring a hot and cold buffet style breakfast, daily lunch menu and buffet style dinner, La Himera specialises in local, Mediterranean and international cuisine. A Sicilian theme night with live music is staged once a week, and you can take your meals al fresco on the terrace, too.
Pleasantly decorated with cream walls and tiled flooring the twin rooms sleep up to four - and can be sold as a single. You'll have air-conditioning/heating, as well as some outside space with a balcony or terrace.
The hotel consists of main building rooms and garden chalet type rooms.
We were in one of the garden chalet rooms which are lovely. Plenty of wardrobe space, drawers, nice big bed and good air conditioning.
Being in the garden area they are nice & quiet so we had four good nights sleep. The bathroom is a good size, well maintained, nice towels, a shower in the bath with toiletries & a hair dryer.
The food is reasonable served buffet style but there is not a huge choice and variety it is however satisfying and wholesome.
The staff are friendly and efficient with a fairly good command of English.
The beach is a bit stoney so take beach shoes, there are plenty of free sun beds with umbrellas, which are largely unreserved!!
The hotel runs a shuttle bus into Cefalu for a few euros every day which is well worth the trip as it's a lovely little town.
Yes, I would stay there again with no hesitation.More

Good Clean Hotel
We visited this hotel on a trip with Newmarket holidays as part of a trip of Sicily (Classic) very nice hotel very clean fresh towels every day plenty of choice at meal times, but if on an early morning trip you will miss out on a good breakfast, instead off the meat cheese, tea/coffee which is good, plenty to do if needed in and around with other Hotel next door, good choice Newmarket.

Super stay at Fiesta Garden Beach
The hotel is situated about half way between Palermo and Cefalu. It is fronted by very large grounds leading to a sandy /shingle beach. The grounds contain 3 swimming pools , tennis courts, boules, archery, beach bar and restaurant and an outdoor entertainment centre.. The accommodation consists of apartments and bungalows. The bungalow which we occupied was well appointed with all facilities. Food is superb with very wide choices for breakfast and dinner (we were always touring at lunchtime).
The hotel is used for escorted coach tours and by individuals. A hire car is essential if the many historical sites in Sicily are to be visited although daily and cheap shuttles (8-10 euro return) to Palermo and Cefalu are available.More

Best place to discover north of Sicily
Lovely rooms with private balcony or terrace. Modern bathrooms, some with tub, some with shower and some with spa. Although right on the coast (sandy/stoney beach) the hotel has a lovely swimmingpool. Excellent food in the restaurant. Buffet for both breakfast and dinner. I've never seen so much food! And the quality is high!
Friendly and capable staff in hotel, bar and restaurant. Super for visits to Palermo/Monreale and CefalÃº. The only disappointment: Wi-Fi is not free!More

Arrived at the hotel 23:25 after setting off on the coach from the airport at 20:20 therefore just caught the bar before it shut at 24:00hrs. The gardens are very nice with plenty of sun loungers both around the pool and on the beach. Very few rooms had the sun on the balcony within the main hotel building only those facing the South East. The Bungalow veranda's did not see the sun being blocked by the trees, shrubs and bushes. It must be said that the hotel is far from anywhere that can be deemed walkable. The hotel do offer a twice daily bus shuttle service in Cefalu 09:00 returning at 12:30 and 15:00 returning 18:00hrs, its takes approx 35 minutes. Food was not to the standard experienced from visits in Spain, Greece and Caribbean and we enjoy Italian food. The restaurant experience was not helped by the fact the waiters wanted to clean up around you if it was getting close to closing time in fact, we found them quite rude. Bar staff along with receptionists however were exceptional and very pleasant. We would never dream of going back there. The hotel star rating did not match that of what we would call 4 star it would be struggling to reach 3 with some areas being in our personal opinion quite dirty and not up to a standard expected for the price we paid. Vodafone worked on my mobile however, my wife could not pick up 3More
