Lovely holiday, great staff, lovely food great location. We visited Sotiris studios on a late break. The location is located just a mile from the airport but don’t let that bother you. Flights are very far and few between and the peace is disturbed for about 30 seconds and that’s it. I think in our entire stay the most we heard was about 5 flights all day. The staff are superb, nothing is too much trouble and extremely helpful. We opted for b&b with our tour operator however we upgraded to half board once we arrived and it was definitely worth it. The food was lovely and plenty of choice with a daily special. If you fancied a bit of something more special ie a steak platter you could pay a small premium. We enjoyed every meal we had. The room was a little dated however it was very clean and fit for purpose, the bed was very firm but we slept extremely well and was very comfortable. There’s a lovely sandy safe beach about 5 minutes walk from the complex which is very safe for children and there is a beach bar which you could hire 2 sun beds and a parasol for €10 a day. The planes fly right over the beach however as I’ve said already they are few and far between. The area doesn’t have much around other than a couple of small supermarkets just up the road and a few tavernas. There’s a bus that goes to Argostoli with the bus stop again just 5 minutes walk up the road. €2 per adult anywhere and goes on a circle route. When I say a bus it literally is just one bus doing the route. Check out the times if you do decide to take a trip on the bus as there’s a big break in the service from 3:30pm until 7:30pm which is the last bus. If you miss that then it’s a taxi ride back. We hired a car for 3 days which I think is a must and wished that I’d hired it for the whole week. We used Pefanis car hire 3 days for €70 no deposit required fully insured and they delivered and collected the car from the complex. I really highly recommend them if you’re thinking of hiring a car. There are lots of hire car companies available locally and we saw more hire cars than local cars driving. Driving is extremely easy, the roads are very quiet. We drove to Myrtos beach, you have to drive through the mountains which can be a bit hair raising at times but take it easy, don’t get worried by any local taxi drivers who may try to tailgate you, just pull over where safe and they’ll overtake you. We really enjoyed our stay at Sotiris and can’t recommend it enough, it’s peaceful if that’s what’s you want, if you like it a bit more lively then try elsewhere. We’d certainly return.

I’ve been visiting Kefalonia for a number of years, this is by far my favourite place to stay. From the moment you arrive a warm welcome from the family awaits, right to the moment you leave nothing is too much trouble. I chose bed and breakfast but had the facility to cook in my room as well.. The studios are clean and tidy, beds are comfy and the showers are the best I’ve used. I loved that I could see the mountains at the entrance and watch the sun set over the sea in the evening from my balcony. During the day the sun loungers are super comfy with the bar in easy reach, Dionisis made a great coffee and Catlin was super friendly and able to advise on any questions I had. Location wise it’s perfectly placed to catch the local bus (2euros) to Argostoli or wander down to the beach. Favourite dishes were pancakes / Greek salad / prawn souvlaki. There are nightly traditional Greek specials so the menu stayed varied and the price very reasonable, with generous portions. There was a real mix of age groups staying at the studios , but always a warm, friendly atmosphere. as a solo traveller it was great to meet new people but to also have quiet time too. I’ve always felt incredibly safe on the island and this holiday was no exception- in fact my trip is booked for next year to return to this special place with some of the warmest people I have ever met.

On arrival no one knew where reception was It's between the bar and the restaurant in a cupboard ha Staff very friendly I got the furthest block away .. in-between the reeds and the dumping ground for old and broken sunbeds ..block c ..or Cell block H as we called it ...bins were changed every day but not cleaned every day..basic cooking equipment Got bitten to death by mosquitos even with plug ins ..spray and creams Loads of wasps 😳 And on the direct path to the landing strip of the airport..which is handy No TV which was great ... Limited WiFi which didn't bother me Very expensive!! Pasta was microwaved but breakfast was very nice..toasted sandwiches were good too Close to bus stop and local tavernas Very quiet ..if you want something more lively don't stay here Pools were lovely if not cold Sun beds were tired and sinking in a bit Beach is lovely Wish I'd hired a car but was told by agent the damage waiver was a grand cash ..but isn't the case if you shop around A few people complained about the rooms and got moved to the main blocks over looking the pool which seemed nicer I'm glad I didn't pay alot for this holiday and was quite disappointed But had a chilled out week reading my book and being bitten by mozzies Enjoy

Clean apartment with lovely bar, beautiful pools and comfortable poolside beds, lovely sea views from a lot of the rooms. Staff very friendly and always willing to help. As for the food, it is fantastic we went half board and could pick off a menu for both breakfast and dinner, amazing menu with lots of choice

These apartments are 2 star so comfy beds, great location, clean accommodation and a fridge, kettle, toaster and hob. It was perfect for us. We overlooked a pool from the front door and the patio windows, we had a small balcony to sit on and the beach, shop and bus stop were all less than 2 minutes away :-)

Stayed in the studios which were advertised as suitable for self catering. The kitchen was not suitable for any sort of cooking due to only having 2 rings and a fridge freezer which would intermittently freeze everything! Next to no utensils, the ones that were there were old and not fit for purpose. Bathroom would also intermittently not have hot water. Rook wasn't clean, there were dead spiders everywhere! Also no smoke alarm. Bedding was stained and old. The balcony contained what I believe was simply old bar furniture. The 2 stars are purely for the pool areas, they were clean and comfortable and the onsite food was brilliant but the whole stay was let down by the pure rundown and unclean state of the studio.

I have only marked it down due to how basic the studios are and some bits around are a bit tatty but don’t let that put you off. Yes it’s in the middle of nowhere but there are buses or the staff here can arrange a car for you. The staff are wonderful. One of the cleaners has the best singing voice I have ever heard. The cleaners come in and clean every day. The studios do lack just things like two large plates, only one bowl just things like that but they are clean and comfortable. We didn’t spend much time in our room so the fact it was basic didn’t matter. Oh and the shower had no hook which made showering really interesting. Super friendly staff and the restaurant is nice too. Good menu and food delicious. Kefalonia is just stunning and hiring a car to get around is highly recommended, you can go and see the most beautiful places. Oh the studios are near the airport, at the end of the runway but we loved watching the planes. Also I think the pool view studios were newer so maybe worth requesting those. A fab holiday.

Very mixed feelings about this place. Outwardly very attractive and very well kept, the pool areas are fine and have plenty of comfy (if aging) sunbeds. Our studio was shabby and very dated, poorly equipped and sadly lacking. However, it was clean. I think the studios overlooking the pool/bar were probably much better, they looked it and the balcony furniture was nice whereas ours was poor and dilapidated. The location is dire with nothing to do or see locally, car hire was expensive but an absolute necessity for us, we went everywhere and saw everything, it's a beautiful island. The food at Sotiris was okay and reasonably priced although Greece is very expensive nowadays, 2 mains and a half carafe of house wine is easily 40 euros, have a sweet each and it will be over 50 euros. We have a great fondness for Greece and the Greeks and sympathise with their financial problems, unfortunatelyI think they do take advantage of that and our desire for a complaint-free holiday especially after Covid. We could have complained about several things but that would have created stress which was the last thing we all need right now. We wouldn't stay here again and we wouldn't recommend it to others I'm sorry to say. Overall score 6/10 because they're lovely people.

We stayed here early September. We arrived at 8pm so we’re quickly shown to our room/apartment. On arrival we were so surprised by the huge 2 bed apartment that we had been given. On further inspection we realised the apartment was ill equipped, filthy and not at all what we had paid for. It was set back at the end of the complex next to a sewage pipe, the smell was unforgiving. Mosquitoes were horrendous due to the stagnant water and scrub land behind us. We complained about the cleanliness and lack of cooking equipment (we had been allocated 1 ring and a kettle) and they did send a cleaner and supplied us with a toaster and double hot plate. My partner was still not happy with the cleanliness and general state of the apartment so they did move us on the 3rd day to a lovely studio by the pool which was fantastic. Staff were friendly, food on site was ok- nothing dairy free so hard for allergy sufferers and very over priced. Area is quiet and peaceful and ammes beach was 200m and absolutely stunning! The back of the complex seriously needs updating, the studio complex by the pool are beautiful and that’s what you see on the pictures. Probably wouldn’t stay again due to location. No where to go unless you get the bus, rent a car or get the over priced taxis! Plus point’s- airport 1 mile away- and you can entertain yourself by seeing the planes land, pool by bar is spotless with super comfy sun loungers (other pool was always green so didn’t use) beach close, bus stop close, 4/5 taverns within walking distance so options for dinner.

Spent a week here in August. If you want loud music and noisy bars this is not the place for you. Lovely for a relaxing holiday. 3 pools, pool bars. Good home cooked food something for everyone. Clean rooms, some need updating but I'm sure they will soon be all the same. Would recommend this hotel comfortable and not fussy.
