Surrounded by sub-tropical gardens and backed by its own private beach, the Fiesta Garden Beach has a real away-from-it-all setting. The nearest shops and restaurants are in Cefalu town, which is about a 25-minute drive away. A taxi costs approximately 30 euros each way, but there’s also a shuttle bus that runs a couple of times a day for about 6 euros return.
If you want to stay put, there’s plenty going on. For starters, the pool scene alone is worth a postcard home. There’s a huge lagoon-like number framed by a spacious sun terrace just a stone’s throw from the shore – so you can swap poolside for beachside in seconds. Then there’s a separate kids’ pool to keep the little ones happy.
As for the rooms, some come in a bungalow-style – great for sharers or families. Inside, expect a neutral colour scheme with a fresh, bright feel. You won’t find any out-of-the-ordinary fittings or furnishings here but there’s plenty of space to spread out and private balconies or terraces come as standard. Plus, extras like air-conditioning and satellite TVs are all part of the package.
Lastly, the Fiesta Garden Beach has a great day-to-night entertainment programme. We’re talking sports on the beach, poolside quizzes and evening shows with a West End sparkle. And if you’ve got children in tow, there’s a kids’ club waiting to make their break even more memorable.

This pool is ideal for the whole family. Ranging from just 80cm up to a depth of 1.8 metres, the pool has space for everyone to enjoy themselves. With small islands and a mass of palm trees, there's plenty of opportunity to sunbath, swim, or just lie back and get a great tan. Loungers and parasols just add to your comfort.

nice hotel but isolated
Nice enough hotel - but very isolated. 2 weeks may be too long unless you have a hire care, or on a package that does (expensive) excursions. You cant walk along the beach, or the road - though there is a shuffle bus twice a day - around 5 euros. Friendly and efficient staff. Plenty off food available - especially if on all inclusive. Only one English company offers this hotel, so few English visitors. Most staff speak English - or will find someone that does. Hotel is comfortable, clean. has lovely gardens and 3 outdoor pools which are shared with adjoining hotel - but this was not a problem and plenty of space for all, sunbeds are not supposed to be reserved - but they are! Evening entertainment was not to our taste. a chap singing and playing keyboard - every night for 2 weeks. Animation team are hard working, and friendly. All staff were very friendly and helpful. We would not go back, but that is due to location - nothing wrong with the hotel.More
LDR53, Canterbury, United Kingdom
Stayed in this hotel in August with a family group of 9. On arrival we were upgraded to a bungalow room, having booked a room in the hotel. We were very pleased with the room and on looking at other family members hotel rooms, we much preferred ours. Having been to many AI hotels in Turkey, this was our first one in Italy and although it was okay, it wasn't a patch on the Turkey ones. Although the swimming pools were nice, the beach was very disappointing. The location of this hotel is very remote and there is nowhere to walk outside if you needed a change of scenery. We hired a car for one day and drove to the Water Park, which was at least a 2 hour drive, although it was worth it when we arrived!! To sum up an average hotel but they could do better, as it was set in lovely grounds.More

fiesta hotel garden beach
I would like to say, what a lovely hotel, especially the bungalow rooms. The food was lovely, though I wouldn't say the bacon or sausage breakfast would suit everyone, but otherwise everything was really good. The staff were really friendly especially the waiters, who give you a free Italian lesson if you need one. The beach could do with the pebbles clearing, maybe they could use them in the gardens or build some nice walls. The entertainment team, especially aurelio, simone and guisto were brilliant. If you join in the water aerobics and dancing classes you don't feel as guilty eating all the delicious deserts, watch out for the doughnuts, there really nice. Also if you get a mixer in your spirits, ask for sprite or tonic because if you ask for lemon you get bitter lemon, and it spoils the taste.The grounds are really lovely and spacious and the shuttle buses are really handy to go to the market days.The local village is really nice. If you want peace and quiet you can take a sunbed and put them on the lawns, there's hammocks strung up here and there. All the people we met were really friendly, I would like to return there in the future.More

Good hotel complex
Location a bit difficult to find, accessible more with your own transportation. But once you get there, is fine: complex consists of 2-3 hotels on the same domain. We stayed at Fiesta, all inclusive basis. Rooms a bit dated, but ok. Safe in the room free of charge, daily cleaning very scrupulous. Minibar in the room filled every second day. Meals varied and tasty, but be ready for crowded restaurant areas. I think it was the most professional reception desk i ever saw in hotels so far, i watched them a while. Internet working in lobby only, against charge. (that is a minus for me). Private beach, entrance in the water on 2-3 wooden walk-ins, .. otherwise slippery large round stones, quite tricky. A biiiiig plus is the animation team, ... congrats for the hotel management to contracting them, they considerably increase the quality of the guests stay there. Though i usually like to have everytime a different experience by never going twice in the same place, to this particular hotel i think i would return.More
