“Best holiday ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

I stayed at Avithos Resort in August. Where to start... The Island itself is incredibly beautiful. Amazing beaches all so unique, fantastic food - so fresh and tasty, perfect weather every day and just so relaxing. Staying at Avithos only made all of these things better. The resort is brilliant. A nice pool, plenty of places to sit, relax and have a wine. The rooms were clean, spacious and well equipped. Decent air conditioning but at night there was nothing nicer than throwing open the windows and letting the sea breeze come through the room. The staff were all lovely, friendly and helpful. I had read some reviews about breakfast not being great but that certainly is not the case. Great fresh fruit and a plentiful hot breakfast. The location could also not be better, close to the beach (and brilliant beach bar) and close to town and restaurants, but I would recommend hiring a car (which resort staff organised) as it meant we were able to explore more of this wonderful island.

I really could not recommend Avithos more. I've told everyone I know about what a wonderful holiday I had and I cannot wait to go back!

We recently stayed at Avithos Resort following our engagement. They were extremely helpful- leaving flowers and champagne in our room upon arrival (and even paid for the flowers on departure). The staff could not have been better- so friendly and chatty!! Nikos booked restaurants for us, picked us up from places and even bought us a drink! The rooms were cleaned every day and they even did our washing up for us one day (much to our embarrassment) because we were yet to buy washing up liquid! The resort was absolutely beautiful and despite being lots of families with children it was never too busy around the pool- we found it perfect for couples and families. We recommend hiring a car (something that Nikos kindly arranged for us) so that you can see other parts of the island and enjoy the beautiful drives, but to be perfectly honest, you may not want to leave the resort at all. We will definitely be back, hopefully with a family of our own. Thank you for such a special holiday.

First time I've gone on holiday and not spotted somewhere else I'd rather have stayed. This hotel was everything we look for: luxurious but relaxed; friendly; quiet and in an unspoilt location, near beach and good restaurants. We hired a car, did loads of exploring and our very favourite beaches were in the north but if we go back to Kefalonia I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The drive north is part of the fun and the local beaches are nice enough. The staff were friendly and helpful and seemed to be constantly working around the hotel and gardens, keeping everything pristine. Our maisonettes was spacious and cleaned immaculately every day. The pool was perfect-hope to return again some day soon.

My fiance and I decided to book a last minute trip to Kefalonia and decided to stay at Avithos Resort. What a great choice! Our flight was delayed about 2 hours yet there was still a van waiting at the airport to pick us up. Once at the resort we were greeted with a smile by the lovely Christina(sorry if the spelling is incorrect). We were then given a selection of 3 rooms and went with one at the back of the property. The room was large, modern and very clean. The mini kitchen was a nice touch as we enjoy making our own breakfast. The pool area is massive, gorgeous, and you never need to fight for a chair. The food was nice and the beer always ice cold. If you wanted to walk to the beach it was about 15 mins away but if you wanted to, Nikkos(the owner) would drive you there. Renting a car is a must as there is so much to see throughout the island and Nikkos will be happy to arrange one for you. Speaking of Nikkos(again, spelling), he was such a great guy. Always smiling and always happy to help, even personally gave us a ride to the airport when we left. There is sooo much more I could say about this resort and island but you really should go see it for yourself, you won't be disappointed. By the way, this resort is great for couples!

Room Tip: Choose one at the back on the lower level as the sun can be really intense during the day.

Just returned from a fabulous holiday at Avithos resort. The hotel is lovely and clean, relaxed and nothing is too much trouble. NiKos and Christina will go out of there way to make your holiday perfect. We loved Avithos beach, one of the best, and the beach bar was great to sit and watch the sun set while enjoying a cocktail or two. If your looking for a chill out week then this is the place to go. Will be going back for sure.

Room Tip: All room looked quiet. Might get a better view upstairs

A very relaxing atmosphere and very friendly too. The hospitality was awesome and we will not hesitate to return. Sorry we didn't stay for longer. The staff were very helpful with organizing car hire and dropped us off at the beach and Lassi. They went over and above other resort staff I am sure. A fantastic island to explore and really romantic views.

Just back from a 2-week holiday at Avithos and I can now understand why people feel compelled to leave a review. The resort itself is immaculate. Everywhere is cleaned regularly, the pool is fantastic and the rooms are great. I could have been mistaken but it seemed like we got maid service every day with fresh towels and bed linen. There are 6 tavernas within a 10-15 minute walk - our favourites were Dum Spiros, Akropolis and Muses. There are also good beaches at Avithos, and one of our favourite sand beaches at Hellis.
The main reason that I am leaving this review is to applaud the staff at Avithos. Nikos and Christina couldn't do enough for you from giving island advice, arranging taxis, car hire, or giving lifts to tavernas, etc. The cleaning staff and breakfast team were always pleasant and had a friendly smile.
But for me there was a star behind the bar! Katazyna from Poland was an absolute delight.
She works long hours and does bar snacks - hot and cold- from 630pm to 900pm. Not only does she take the orders, she also cooks and presents the food. From 900pm to midnight she runs the bar, and always had a lovely smile for us even when what seemed like a dozen couples all descended on the bar for bar snacks all at the same time!
Her English is excellent and we had many discussions with her over the two weeks. Because of her lovely personality, other couples were attracted to the bar and we had countless evenings chatting with others, some of whom had been to the resort more than a dozen times, and the resort has only been open since 2004! The only problem Katazyna had was trying to close the bar at midnight when people like us were sitting at the bar.She accomplished this with the utmost courtesy. I hope that she returns next year. If not, she will be very diificult to replace.

Room Tip: Studio apartments are on the ground floor with small patio. Upstairs are larger apartments such as m...
