Avithos Resort
Ranked #1 of 8 Hotels in Svoronata
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 September 2011

The hotel is located in a magnificient landscape, surrounded by wonderful gardens, olive trees and picturesque small villages. It is relatively close to Argostoli (~15'-20' driving), as well as to lots of easily accessed sandy beaches (Avythos, Ai Hellis, Ammes, etc) and nice tavernas in walking distance (5-10'). Hotel architecture is perfectly aligned with the scenery. Special care seems to be taken in gardens, flowers, etc. Rooms are spacious enough, cleaning and breakfast are above average, pool is very nice and hotel owners are friendly and willing to help in any way, room rates can be lower. Pool bar needs to be improved, in terms of spirits, snacks offered variety and service quality. People would find it then a good choice to stay in some nights, instead of visiting Argostoli or Lassi.

Just returned from 2 week stay at this beautiful resort. It looks exactly as it does on their web site. We were all tired and stressed 2 adults and 2 children and in need of a holiday. One look at the pool and we were instantly relaxed. Staff and Management very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The whole place is immaculate. Beds made up everyday with towels and bedding changed regularly. Breakfast was buffett style with more than enough choice, kids loved the cakes and pastrys. Beach and restaurants within walking distance but car is needed to explore further, if you can pull yourself away from the pool! Thanks for a truly amazing stay and will definately look to return.

I was recommended Kefalonia by a friend as the perfect honeymoon destination. As mu husband and I were saving for our own property we were after a reasonably priced holiday which was still romantic, idyllic and relaxing and everything else you expect a honeymoon to be. Kefalonia was exactly this; definitely the most beautiful island in Europe!

My husband and I stayed at Avithos Resort and were delighted with the service. The staff were attentive to our needs; they were incredibly hospitable from the moment we stepped on to the premises and we willing to help in anyway they could muster. The room we stayed in for 10 days was quaint and romantic yet modern and spacious; it encompassed a complimentary fusion of modernism and old Kefalonian style which very charming and set the mood every evening!

Avithos Resort was very close to the local beach and around 10-minutes away from the main area of Argostoli which is filled with intricate little shops, boutiques, coffee shops and the most exquisite churches. Argostoli provided a great night-spot for a few drinks without being too intense or noisy. Perfect for a honeymoon! My husband and I managed to visit plenty of towns around the island and plenty of beautiful, natural attractions. The staff at Avithos willingly helped me create an itenary for my honeymoon. On our days off, we managed to use the pool and facilities at the Resort which were always clean and perfectly lit. The restaurant served delicious food; and I am sad to return to London without this access to Kefalonian food.

My husband and I were very thankful to the staff and definitely recommend this Resort in Kefalonia; the Avithos Resort definitely placed the finishing touch on our amazing wedding. Thanks again and we'll be back soon :-)

Room Tip: Just ask the lovely staff for the best room!

I stayed here with a friend in July whilst visiting friends from the Island, it is a stunning resort, with beautiful gardens and a fabulous swimming pool. Our room was very clean, spacious and had a large balcony, so we had no complaints.

The staff were also very kind and ready to help, they advised us on some great places to go on the Island and were always going out their way to ensure we had a lovely stay. The manager in particular (Nikos) was extremely friendly and helpful and really made our stay a pleasure.

The food was great, you could get snacks at the pool bar during the day and breakfast was amazing, there was a great variety of pastries, cold meats, cereals etc.

Kefalonia itself is absolutely stunning; the beaches are out of this world! We were near a friend so used her car to travel to most places but there are taxis to get around. It is quiet at night so you can get a good night's sleep as it is about 10-15mins away from the closest main town of Argostoli, which has some lovely bars.

We shall definitely return; it is a beautiful resort on an even more beautiful island!

Excellent resort, crystal clean sea, calm. At night and during the day I could sleep well. Cleaning was every day, towels and bed linen changed every other day. The resort was incredibly clean. The environment is suitable for a quiet family vacation or romantic stay. Spacious apartment about 30 sqm, fully equipped kitchen (dishes Solingen, glasses of wine). The staff is helpful and friendly. Excellent homemade breakfast, including the right of Greek yogurt with honey, high quality juices and pastries, fruit. The nearest beach Ai Helis about 15 minutes walk, fine sand, few people, clean water. Food can be bought at the supermarket for a normal price about 10 minutes on foot. I recommend to buy a large frozen shrimps. The capital Argostoli about 12 km, 20 minutes by bus, ticket standing 1.6 euros one way. He drives it there at 10:30 (stop at the intersection) and back at 14:00 (from bus station). Bus stops wherever you sign as a taxi. Do not expect resort with many shops, restaurants and bars. In the resort is poolbar, and the place is a bar "Crazy George" with free internet, including Skype, and within walking distance is about 8 restaurants and taverns. It is rather a quiet holiday in private, sought particularly by English tourists. The airport is about 5 km from the resort, but not hear traffic is minimal.

My wife and I visited this hotel in July. The hotel is very beautiful and with amazing guerdens all around it. The rooms are very big (we stayed in room 212 and 207) and nicely decorated. The people working at the reception are very helpful and they will try to help you in any way they can. The beach is quite far from the hotel (we had a car) but i guess it must be a 20-30 minute walk from the hotel, with a ver nice restaurant the "enetiko" the food is very good with reasonable prices and huge portions (another nice restaurant is called esperides and is a 5 minute walk from the restaurant). The area is very quite especially during the night you couldn't hear any noises. I would recommended this hotel to people that like a beautiful environment around them and wanr relaxing holidays (there are no bars or clubs near the hotel).

Room Tip: Room 207 has a balcony overlooking the beautiful gardens and the swimming pool it is ideal room for...

We were looking for a nice clean quiet place, to use it as our base to see Kefalonia. Not only we found what we were looking for, but the service, the room, the gardens and the sarroundings were beyond our expectations. The view of Kourkoumelata at night could only be compared to that of Acropolis.
Although we promised ourselves never to stay in the same place twice, we would gladly stay in Avithos again.
