Returned last friday from our second week long visit to the Olive Bay. Last year we were on the first floor, which had great views, but this year we had a second floor room and the views were so much better. Spectacular views of the sun-rise about 7am. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the evening with a nice glass... More

These apartments are perfect for a self catering holiday located in a very peaceful and relaxing part of Agia Efimia. We had a lovely spacious clean apartment on the 2nd floor which commanded fabulous views of the bay from the balcony. The young girl who was in charge of reception was so helpful and informative who went out of her... More

I found Olive Bay Hotel at a desperate mood to escape from Lefkada island towards a nearby destination (Kefalonia) due to unpleasent stay (will describe in another review). I was totally pleased by all choices, the island, the location, the hotel, the management. Olive Bay Hotel, not really a hotel as there was not breakfast or restaurant facilities is remarkably...

A bakers to buy fresh bread every day, a bank with ATM, travel agents, car and bicycle hire, 2 little supermarkets, loads of lovely tavernas and restaurants. You can take boat trips and ferries to...

First time in Kefalonia, but not last, thanks to this lovely hotel. Clean, quite, well equiped, centrally located in the nice village of Agia Efemina. About 20 minutes drive to Myrtos and Antisamos beaches. Whatever you need within a walking distance. Don't look any further, this is the place to spend great time on the island.

We really enjoyed our 4 day stay at Olive Bay Hotel in the lovely village of Agia Efimia. The owner's daughter manages the reception and is extremely friendly and helpful, offering free espressos and homemade cake. The hotel is comfortable and has beautiful sea views, located only 50 meters from a small secluded beach where we went swimming every morning.... More

We stayed here in July 2015 for a week. The sea view was amazing and it was a two minute walk to the local tavernas and shops. Amalia who checked us in was very helpful and a great source for information. The room we had was very spacious and comfortable.
