Had a lovely holiday in September on the beautiful island of Kefalonia. We stayed at three hotels, all of them very highly rated on Trip Advisor, so that we could experience the whole island. The Odyssey was our favourite. The rooms are superb, extremely clean, well appointed and very large with the best mosquito screens on the patio doors that we have come across - a definite plus point as, although there were no mosquitos, there were an awful lot of wasps. It was lovely to wake up in the morning to watch the wonderful sunrise without even having to get out of bed.
We had our best meal of the week at a The Paradise Beach restaurant - turn left out of the hotel - wonderful sardines and delicious rabbit stew. There are plenty more taverns in the small village which is only a short stroll from the hotel and, of course you can eat in the hotel by the lovely swimming pool.
The area is in a very convenient position for sightseeing, a car is recommended as there are some lovely places to visit on the island. The ruins of Sami were particularly interesting.
The staff at the Odyssey were lovely people and the hotel is very well maintained. We were foolish enough to leave our English money in the safe in our room - we didn't realise this until we had returned home but after an e mail to Catherine the money was found, still in the safe and is being returned to us, so a big thank you to the staff for their honesty.
We would highly recommend Kefalonia and this hotel, especially for couples. Lots of beautiful places to visit, lovely food and of course the hospitality and friendliness of the people.
