Just got back from a 7 day stay with my teenage son at Avithos, and I can say without a doubt that in 30+ years experience of holiday hotels, this is simply the best!
From the first e-mail booking exchanges with Christina some months ago, to the final lift back to the airport, Nico and his team were the perfect hosts - nothing was too much trouble, and everything done with a smile!
Attention to detail was superb - how many hotels produce extra sunbeds and shades on request at 2 in the afternoon) - and the staff couldn't have been friendlier! (I note a previous lastminute.com booking remark re bar prices, but this isn't a budget hotel and Kefalonia isn't a budget island - you get what you pay for - and the hotel prices aren't excessive!). My favourite detail example was that the normally black iron drain covers had been painted gold - even in the service road at the back of the resort! That is the standard Nico sets!
Our room was spotless and the beds perfect and very comfortable..... and for the first time ever in a Greek hotel, everything worked and was in tip-top condition.
I honestly couldn't fault the place. Nico and his team run a first class holiday hotel. It's not fancy or pretentious, it's just a lovely hotel, good quality hotel that hosted my son and I just as I like to think I would host my best friends at home! I can't put it any better than that!!
