Me and my partner stayed here the first week of September (2016). We loved it here, the hotel style is very boutique and alternative which was suited to our taste. The pool area was lovely and we always managed to get a sunbed. The room was cleaned daily to a high standard. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive. In... More

We booked this hotel by phone from the nearby island of Zakinthos. The owner and her staff are really helping, at the front desk we rented a car for our visit of Cefalonia. Our room was the main suite of the hotel, plenty of space, fully equipped kitchen, a nice private garden with a huge outdoor jacuzzi, modern bathroom (bathrobe... More

We stayed at the Leivatho for 9 nights in late September. It is a modern hotel built with lots of concrete and 'minimalist' design and decor. Nothing naturally Greek about it though! We stayed in a garden view ground floor room .... the garden view was nothing to write home about -- a couple of overgrown bottle brush trees and... More

We stayed here for a week in September. It was a very pleasant experience indeed. The staff were great, the hotel was fantastic and the food was to die for. Even a slight problem with the room was dealt with professionally and quickly. Fantastic beach just down the road, the best we visited by a long way.

About 10 minutes from the airport, the hotel nestles by the coast at Avithos Beach, in a rural setting. The stunning design blends the hotel seamlessly into its surroundings, and presents a lovely sea view from the restaurant and pool. The individual apartmenst are spread out into the well-tended gardens, full of ciutrus and olive trees and rosemary bushes. Our... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in September. We had the warmest and friendliest welcome upon arrival. The waitress from the restaurant greeted us as she knew no one was at reception at the time of arrival. She gave us a nice table in the restaurant with beautiful sea views and brought us a fresh orange juice, which I think... More

It is a pity that beautiful materials such as stone and marble found in abundance in Greece have not been used for the main part of the hotel. Instead, the mass of reinforced concrete is an eyesore. Most of the annexes where the bedrooms are, look much nicer in a mixture of stone and concrete. We are sure the architect... More
