for us was the best location and timings (last two weeks of season and far away in the middle of nowhere) even few days of terrible weather including flood and road closure did not make our holidays great! rather old styled, no safe, small rooms but cosy... very good food, typical cuisine...

Food was dreadful-cold and tasteless, even if you went in right as the buffet was being opened. The alcohol was watered down to such an extent that you couldn't get drunk if you tried! On a positive note, the island is beautiful with lots to see, just don't use this hotel as your base. The "beach" which was part of...

We visited this hotel in June after My daughter persuaded us to visit Kefalonia as she was staying in the apollonian just up the road and there was no places left there and so we asked her to look at the hotel down the road and see what she thought - on first glance it seems amazing! Oh whoa betide...

This is a very good hotel right beside a sandy beach with excellent swimming. Rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean and we had a good view. We stayed all inclusive (have never before) and weren't expecting much from the included beer and wine, but both were excellent. The food was varied and nicely cooked with sufficient choice that even fussy...

First..would we go back (if there wasn't a thousand other places to visit) YES. We travelled as a couple, aged 50 plus for a quiet vacation (We booked 2 days before travelling!) and this we achieved. If you do not hire a car you will need to get a taxi or accept the bus to Lixouri and the ferry to...

10 days half board holiday, My wife and I were very disappointed with the hotel, , Food was just about acceptable but always just warm, never hot, the entertainment was pathetic, just 2 Polish girls playing CD s , The area nearby is very pretty but very little to do , just 2 or 3 bars come tavernas.

We stayed here beginning of September 2016. Be prepared this is a 3 star hotel. Nothing else. Do not expect anything above this, However the staff are helpful and friendly and were happy to move our room when we were unhappy. This was mainly due to no room safe (although I was stressed out with ants in the room..!!! )...

Booked this as a four star hotel on a Jet 2 package. The room was antiquated and other than the addition of a noisy air con unit hadn't been updated in 30 years. The balcony door would not shut so I got a safe key only to find that the safe was not screwed to the wall and you could...

We arrived around 7.30am and although our room wasn't ready right away, we only had to wait an hour and they gave us a complimentary breakfast while we waited. The grounds are lovely, the pool is a decent size and there are loads of sunbeds. There's a main bar and a pool bar, the pool bar has a busier vibe...
