“Marietta - Family of 4 experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

Stayed in the Marietta twice now with 2 small children. We had 2 storey accomodation which did make it difficult with 2 small children as the stairs were marble and also spiral. The room was clean and well maintained. The owners were very welcoming and did everything they could to ensure our holiday was one to remember. The pool was clean and had a small pool for the children, it was a safe area for them to play. There was a small grassed area with a swing which our children used now and then. The bar served snacks and good beer, you can sit and watch the pool in the afternoon with a mythos!! The walk into Skala was along a main road but was never a problem for us - mainly because this "main" road was so quiet, typical of the area. Skala itself is lovely, just enough bars and restaurants for a good balance.

Room Tip: Try to get the rooms overlooking the pool, large balcony and great views

We stayed in the Marietta for our honeymoon and the place was very clean, friendly with good bar snacks a nice clean bar, which, was quiet but we went at the end of May which was the very early part of the season, the pool area was also very clean and relaxing and just a short walk to the bar made sure you had a nice cool drink to take back to your lounger, the rooms were basic, but, you had what you needed for your stay and they were cleaned every day with fresh sheets and towels every 2 days. The bed was unfortunately like sleeping on a rock, the only thing that we can really complain about the whole stay. A 5/10min walk would get you to the beach or the town/village quite easily. For those that like dining out this place is packed with restaurants and bars, we found that after trying quite a few of the restaurants we settled on one called "Siroco", a nice warm family run place whith exellent home cooked traditional food, Andreas and Karen made you feel very welcome and relaxed. We would like to go back, but, the only reason we dont is because we want to try other places as well.

We have been to Kefalonia many times, and decided last minute to have a break there half term end of october. Even though the hotel was booking guests in still, they werent offering the full services you expect, the weather was nice, but there was no ice cream avaliable. This was our major dissapointment along with the poor quailty breakfast, we wouldnt suggest doing B&B, its just pathetic the breakfast they offer, cheap cereals or toast. Round the corner is, Kalyva, a great place to eat thats really cheap and you get loads. So go there.
Some tour companies pull out of kefalonia september and some october, this is bad for the island, has half of the places shut october, even though the weather is much nicer than in the uk, its was 24c most days.
We love skala, we love kefalonia, but only going June to September.
The rooms are spotless , the facilites are good, and we would return on a Board only basis.

We stayed in the apartments (Eleana) across the road. From the top (third) floor we had great views of the hills and of the sea in the distance. When I fused the lights they were round in minutes! When i asked for the pool music to be turned down, they did that too. Skala is a friendly, easy going place with lots of restaurants - great food - and no one is shouting at you to go in! You need shoes for the beach - painful little pebbles! The sea is wonderful. Veronica's is great value for beautiful jewellery.

We stayed in Marietta village,Skala,Kefalonia for two weeks in September,our second visit .Obviously we liked it the first time hence our return it was as perfect as before. It is a very attractive place and spotlessly clean.The apartments are very comfortable with everything you need for self catering.The staff are pleasant and cheerful and very approachable if you need anything. We had beautiful weather all of the time which helps but we found the other holidaymakers were as relaxed and happy as we were.It is well placed for both the main road and the beach both within five to ten minute walk.Skala is a lovely with lots of great tavernas and restaurants nice little bars supermarkets and bakeries.We love it so much we have already booked for next year.

The Site & Rooms:
My partner and I stayed at the Eleanna apartments between 13-20th September 2011.
Upon arrival, immediately greeted by a member of staff who showed us our room and settled us in. The apartments have so much storage space- more than at home!!! The roooms are kept lovely and clean, feel very secure and ours had a double and a single. We had a double ring mobile cooker, kettle, fridge with freezer compartment and cupboard space with standard cutelry, pots and pans, drainer and crockery.
Maid service was daily with towel change i think twice, poss3 times during the week.
The staff were lovely and friendly, and the areas by the pool booth in the marietta and eleanna, inside and by the pool were lovely . Everywhere was very clean and the grounds are full of beautiful flowers.
The apartments are part of the Marietta Hotel, located just across a small quiet road but you are free to use both the pool and snack bar of the eleanna, along with the pool and snack bar of the the marietta. We were, from the start, made to feel as though it was all ours for our enjoyment as we wished and it felt as though it was all one site.
It took approx 7 mins to walk into Skala, which had a lovely array of restaurants (you couldn't eat at them all in a week!) and a choice of bars and souvenir shops too. If you hire a car, from here you can get to the whole island (Fiskardo furthest at 2hrs away), and Myrtos Beach and old skala are picturesque and worth a visit. Poros, with its harbour is pretty too, and it you take the road out of skala town to Poros, theres little beaches you can stop at on the way that you can have to yourself for the day that are quite secluded (just look for the big rocks sticking up out of the water)
If you don't wish to book car hire beforehand, there is a place right oppsite the hotel. Petrol station is out of hotel turn right and about 1 mile up the road. Lots of little beaches up this road and the fishing town of Katelios, where you can hire boats for the day (need to book the day before)
We had a wonderful time at this accommodation and wouldn't hesitate to go back. In my opinion it far exceeds its 3 star rating and has a lovely atmosphere that made our holiday one to remember.

Just returned from this hotel with my husband, daughter and her husband. Ages range from 25 - 54 and we all thought is was a great place to stay. The pool was a lovely place to relax in the daytime and the beach was not too far away. God restaurants within easy walking distance, too many to choose from, so we ate in a different restaurant every night but our favourtine was Symposium on the front and also the Pines was a very close 2nd.

We were on the 2nd floor in the peach coloured building and everything was very well kept and very clean.I was a bit worried as some comments about this hotel said there were a lot of stairs but I didn't find the stairs difficult or there is a ramp if you don't want to use the stairs.

All in all a very relaxing holiday and we would definitely return to this hotel. Would recommend this hotel.
