our room was excellent - number 152 although it couldnt have been further away from main hotel, but we had a car (the receptionist did check we had !!) and we loaded the car and drove the the pool !! wonderful room, almost new, full bathroom with shower screen and fully tiled with hairdryer. Big sette and plenty of room....and with amazing and beautiful sea views across to Zante and what must be mainland Greece. Yes some rooms have a huge step climb to get to, but if you have a car there are plenty of little spots to park at up the hill..................well, its a mountain really !!!!
We booked this as an independant holiday and got a bargain at £111 for the room B & B for a week, through Thomson and booked flights with excel at £296. If you have a car it is worth looking as we saved alot on this, total holiday with insurance £430 thats for 2 people and not each...
Hotel is excellent , clean and tidy, with great well stocked bar by pools. Snack bar sold salad and the usual snacky stuff....... Pools lovely with plenty of sun beds and sea views from all the terraces. Internet and snax and small shop, all faultless. Only draw back was the restaurant - we booked table at 8.00pm and by 8.50 still no sign of the starter !! The guys are running around but men just dont multi task as well as us ladies (well ok some do !!) so the service was very slow. But with the glorious sea views - it wasnt a major problem. But go to Skala (book the mini bus of the hotel early, we heard many people being told it was full) and eat at the many tavernas. Greeks eat late, so arriving at 9.45 wasnt unusal at all...........Kefalonia is an island we married on last year and this was our 5th trip. It is beautiful, rugged, laid back and typically Greek, but tourism is number 1 so expect tourists to be catered for, but if u search u can still find real Greece.
Suggested car hire through Greekstones, no credit card needed - paid at airport and no exceses which is really good...............try the road from Poros to Sami, then continue to Agia Efima and then to Fiskardo, but steep in places, a bit hairy !!! but so rural and this is real Kefalonia with small mountain villages and the views to Ithacka are truly breathtaking...... Best beaches are Lassi for sand or north of Sami for small white pebbles. All in all the most wonderful holiday. enjoy.
