“Kefalonia is stunning. Metaxatos studios, Lassi and SunIsle holidays awful”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2009

We have recently returned from a holiday in Kefalonia. It is a stunning place and well worth a visit. Our enjoyment however was not due to either SunIsle holidays or the Metaxatos studio apartments in Lassi neither of which I would ever recommend or use again. SunIsle's customer service is very poor. I had requested a quiet Greek village and studio apartment. Lassi is a tourist strip. Metaxatos studios are over priced and over rated. The accomodation was a dark, dingy garage of a room with locked metal shutters on the windows on a busy main road. The staff were miserable. SunIsles local staff failed to get back to us when we registered our initial complaints and we ended up moving out and paying for alternative accomodation. On our return to the UK we complained to SunIsle UK but received no compensation other than 10% off our next booking with them which they offer to early bookings as standard. I wouldn't use them again if they had offered us a free holiday.

4 of us stayed at the Metaxatos in July 2007 and had a fantastic time. Although basic (as expected in Greece) the 2 bed studios were spacious and well equipped. The view from the terrace was out of this world overlooking the sea. We spent quite a few days around the pool which was never too busy and sunbed availability was never a problem. There is a great poolside bar serving drinks and food at a reasonable price. There are lots of restaurants in Lassi, all within 5-10 minutes walk away. Argostoli is only a 20 minute walk in the opposite direction and is great for an alternative night out. A tour of the island is a must as there are many great sights and beaches. Myrtos beach must not be missed. We hired a car for 3 days and saw most of the must-see places. We will definitely return to Kefalonia and wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Metaxatos again.

Stayed at the Metaxatos apartments in September. Stayed in one bedroom studio, small and basic but suited us as only used as a base, didn't spend much time there. Pool area was really pleasant and clean. Cleaned every day by the people in charge at the bar Steph and Dimitris. Really friendly and happy to help. The pool bar is rented and the reception which is therefore seperate is only open in the mornings so you don't actually see the owners very often if at all on arrival your key will just be in the door.

Only about a five minute walk into the centre of Lassi and probably a ten minute walk into the centre of Argostoli. There is more to do in Argostoli than Lassi so it is definately worth the walk. Not much in a taxi home either. There are two levels out of the apartments the bottom exiting on to the "romantic road" and the top level exiting onto the main road into lassi and argostoli. Not sure what the views are like in all of the apartments but ours was a lovely sea view.

If going to Kefalonia it is worth hiring a car as there are some lovely places to see including Fiskardo, the Drogarati caves and the Melissini lake. Some of the roads are a bit hair raising as there are quite steep drops but it is well worth it as the island is beautiful. Really easy if you hire a car from the airport as well.

Food was good, didn't have a bad meal the whole time we were there.
