overpriced accommodation, absolutely inappropriate for more than 2 persons, lack of cabinets and storage areas, bathroom in terrible condition, lack of kitchen equipment, wifi very slow, windows and doors can not be locked, missing mosquito nets, mosquitoes everywhere, dirt under bed, a broken chair on the balcony, the only positive is the clean towels and bed

Inadequate facilities for self catering. Two bowls, two side plates, two knives two forks one blunt veg knife, two mugs and two tumblers is not enough. No corkscrew, no wine glass, can't cut bread. Fridge on it's last legs. Shower had a tiny tray and a mildewey, stick to your back shower curtain. Overall it was clean and the pool was nice. The staff were pleasant. The walk along the coast to Sami was a delight apart from the last few hundred yards on a busy road which felt unsafe at night. We will return to the island and the resort but not this hotel.

me and my boyfriend stayed here few months ago, clean, practical and has everything you need (kitchenette, pots, pans, cups, fridge, aircon and cutlery). A short 20 min walk to sami (accessible for day trips), very close to melissani caves and a lovely warm salt water (i believe) pool which had plenty of sunbeds free. I would recommend.

We were happy to be staying on this side of the island, which seems to be less touristy and more ‘Greek’ than some other places we saw. The hotel has a beautiful view and lovely gardens, which you can enjoy whilst eating breakfast (...average) in the very nice dining room / terrace. The front of house staff we encountered were friendly and helpful.

It is quite a way out of Sami, with not much in the immediate vicinity, so definitely best for travellers who have their own transport. We didn’t, and although we got quite used to the 45-minute walk into town (Karavolimos is closer, maybe 20 minutes walk), it was a bit inconvenient if you wanted a quick pit-stop in the middle of the day.

Our room was very spacious and had good air conditioning so was a clean, refreshing place to come back to. It was rather sparse though: no pictures at all, completely white, and no water or anything in the fridge. Since the room was so big, we couldn’t understand why the bathroom was so small and un-ergonomic: the shower was tiny and impossible to use without getting clung to by the shower curtain, and still the floor got wet.

Our overall feeling about this hotel was that it is a nice place, and if you stay you will be basically comfortable and enjoy its pleasant aspects, but it could offer more for the price. It seemed to lack a certain warmth - just an impression, but indicated by the lack of any pictures, inattention to a small maintenance request we made, very limited replacement of toiletries, etc..

The pool area looked very nice but we didn't use it. Maybe that is more the management's focus.

Tip: if you are staying in or near Sami and also don’t have transport, try Avgerinos Travel Tours for brilliant day-trips to see more of Kefalonia and Ithaca.

On the positive side I would consider the location of the hotel (appartments actually) which is ideal for visiting every major attraction and the spatious room. Housecleaning was every day, change of towels and sheets every other day.

On the downside, in order to reach the appartments you have to climb a very steep hill and, if you have an appartment on the 1st floor, a very steep staircase. This means that the hotel is not well suited for people with dissabilities or for small children.

The wifi was non-existent. The windows and door didn't lock. The shower was very small and had a broken faucet. The fridge had broken shelves and no light. The rooms weren't soundproof.

All in all I would say that this is a very overpriced property, certainly not value for money.

Room Tip: Pick an appartment on the ground floor close to the reception to avoid climbing stairs and going uphill.
