Hotel Fiesta Garden Beach  

With 3 pools, 2 restaurants and 1 private beach, the numbers really add up at this hotel.

This hotel comes with a private patch of beach, where wooden bathing platforms lead guests 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.

Good hotel for a week

Hotel Fiesta Garden Beach is a nice hotel, we stayed in a bungalow in the grounds, which was a lovely room, very comfortable bed, air conditioning very good, good minibar kept well stocked and included in the all inclusive, but the tall pine trees around the bungalows, although very pretty, meant it was too shady to sit out in the evening or morning for a drink. We went to the pool at the next door hotel, the Athenee, as the Garden Beach main pool was always busy or only beds in the shade left and the beachside pool was so noisy, with the animation team. Evening entertainment wasn't great, but food was good, especially the fish and the freshly cooked pasta. Shame it is so far from Cefalu, which is a lovely town, and the shuttle bus (it takes half an hour to get there by bus) stops at 6pm. Overall a nice break, some good trips, love Sicily, but we were ready to leave the Garden Beach after a week.More

high recommendation

I was in that hotel first week of September ,hotel is excellent, clean, staff at reception, restaurant, cleaners, bars, animation, are very friendly and helpful. Room was modern, with a fridge refilled in drinks every other day, had a kettle also tea bags, coffee and sugar. Bathroom was well equipped and very clean. Beach was 2 minutes from hotel, also clean and sunbeds were for free. The sea was wavy due to storm but cannot blame the hotel for it. Food was great, big selection of all kind of international meals. Even mineral water tested great. Everyone have to try the ice-creams-wonderful. The area is quiet as away from cities, but I would advice to go to Etna and Taormina trip to see beautiful views and learn about history and culture of Sicily.More

Magdalena P,

Hotel fiesta.

Excellent hotel and food very very good. Clean and well kept. Location not so good as in the middle of nowhere with no transportation Need to make an adult only area as there are a lot of children running around. Music not to the taste of everyone especially in the middle of the afternoon. Sometimes it resembled a disco(out of date) Children's disco right next to the a la carte restaurant. Not really appropriate when you are sitting having an evening meal and the birdie song starts up!!!More

Never again!!

We stayed here during the last week in August with our small family group. Although the weather was fabulous and the food was plentiful and varied the main problem was the other guests! We found them to be pushy and rude;mainly Italians (hardly surprising to find Italians in Sicily I know). At meal times they circled like hungry vultures outside the restaurant before its doors opened ready to make a dash for it and be first in! It was like they'd not seen food for weeks as they pushed in and grabbed the serving spoons, slopping food everywhere, leaving the lids off the hot serving dishes.Then they would push past you in a typical "me first" manner oblivious of the fact you were near them and they may bump into you. At every turn there was a squawking child with its piercing screams echoing round the pool and through the accommodation blocks. As for the accommodation blocks, the walls are paper thin; we could clearly hear the people next door urinating through the walls! People above who seemed to be wearing diving boots as they clomped across the tiled floor, unaware of the disturbance they were causing below. Then there was the problem of slamming doors and people returning back to their rooms late at night singing and talking very loudly! We had ants in our room and a gurgling air conditioning system; although when we reported this to the hotel the problems were sorted out immediatey. However, the air con system was like having a 1 year old blowing on you from a distance of 20ft!! Then there were more rude guests who considered it normal to pull up a sunbed right next to you; a real intrusion of privacy. We returned from lunch one day to find a couple had pulled up a chair each amongst our beds!! The problem seemed to be complete lack of space; beds crammed in so tightly that your head was about 12" from the stranger's feet beside you. Also it seemed everybody smoked and so we were subjected to breathing in their fumes. Maybe the hotel could consider banning smoking around the pool. We ventured down to the beach one day and were crammed in like sardines. The beds were like lying on a slab! No cushions provided. We were also subjected to the Kids' Club on a daily basis. A mass of Italian children who invaded the pool and made so much noise it was unvearable! If you weren't Italian I guess you couldn't join the kids' club. We saw no English children in the club. It seems as though I'm a grumpy old git but I have to say we were so disappointed with this place only because the guests made it so unbearable. It's just too big! So many unfriendly, self-interested guests who would rather take you down in a rugby tackle than allow you to help yourself to a slice of pizza before them!! Nobody spoke, nobody smiled and it made for an odd atmosphere in the restaurant. Also the hotel is in the middle of nowhere. Nowhere within walking distance, just dried out dusty roads with litter-strewn verges. You are confined to the small shop selling overpriced keyrings and jewellery. I think we were spoiled in our previous choice of The Green Forest hotel in Turkey which was smaller and more intimate and so much more friendly. I suppose it would be interesting to see this place in a less busy period but I won't be going back to see!More

Relaxing Stay

We booked a week all inclusive with Thomson, staying in a Bungalow room. The Room: - Large with a dressing area. Good size bathroom with a jet bath and good shower. Plenty of hot water at all times, and water very powerful. - Plenty of storage space to fully unpack and get the cases out of the way. - Spotlessly clean. The maids changed the towels daily if you wish and do a great job. - Mini-bar (fridge) re-stocked daily with water, pop and local beer. The Hotel: - Good size with lovely grounds to walk around. - Clean throughout. - Seems to be plenty of entertainment if you have children (we don't), the kids all looked to be having a fun time. - Entertainment team don't hassle you if you don't want to join in and there are plenty of quieter areas to sunbathe and relax if you wish. - 3 Large pools. Loungers did fill up quick by the pools, not an issue for us as we prefer the beach. Maybe it is better when the kids are back at school / out of season. - Food was plentiful and varied a little each day. All very tasty and restocked quickly. We are veggies and did struggle a little - there was enough variety for 1 week though. - Restaurant is quite busy (we did go peak season) and so had to wait 5-10 mins for tables by the pool on an evening. There was also a lot of wasps at breakfast which were a little annoying at times. - The pool bar serves toasties, hot dogs etc which gives a good break from the buffet. - Drinks on the AI package included main brands and very nice Bellini cocktails. - Staff were generally friendly and helpful. - The beach was quieter than the pool areas with loungers always available at a reasonable time (10am ish). The sea was like bath water, lovely and warm. Only 1 day it was too rough to swim in, the other days it was calm and swimming allowed. The beach is a mixture of shingle and sand so bring some beach/sea shoes to get in and out of the sea. - Gym facilities were quite limited but sufficient. Location: - Basically it is in the middle of nowhere. However, the hotel run a bus trip to and from Cefalu and Palermo. Make sure you get the return times right though or you will have an expensive taxi ride back!! - The transfer from/to Catania was around 2hrs, but most people slept. The countryside is quite interesting though so this didn't bother us. It may be a little too far for those with young children though, especially considering the general chaos that is Catania Airport! Overall: This hotel and Sicily give a good mix of relaxing pool / beach time with trips to see some culture and sights. One week was great for us as we had 2 day trips (Cefalu, Taormina & Mt.Etna), the rest of the time having a much needed break. One week was perfect.More
