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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

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..!!! )... More

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... More

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.
