Me and my wife just returned from a 2 weeks stay in this great hotel. We have found Thalassa Hotel while searching on the internet and booked direct with their web site.
The excellent location, just a few meters from trendy Makris Gialos and just a 5 minute drive from Argostoli were the reasons why we chose Thalassa.
At our arrival, the discrete and efficient staff offered us a chilled glass of local wine (Robola I think it was) and some olives. Great start for our stay. The hotel is so beautiful....The lobby is stunning with all the cute furniture, library, and arm chairs; bedrooms are immaculately clean and very spacious. The views are the most breathtaking I have ever seen but what makes this hotel so special is the staff which is one of a kind. Very friendly and caring and always with a smile, willing to help all the time. , from reception to the cleaners, everyone is happy and courteous, which means they really must enjoy working there.
Of course this is not a 5star Hotel, but then again the rates they are charging are not even close to 5 star. Our room was excellent, at the first building with a stunning view of a wonderful bay.
If you want to save money and get a cheaper room try the standard sea view rooms, as we did, which although simple, the views to the bay are just breathtaking. For the last 5days we paid some extra and got upgraded to their amazing suites.
I still recommend the standard sea view rooms, although we got spoiled in our suite.
On a second note, the pool is great, sometimes it really gets crowded, but that was not as bad as some people try to describe it.
The breakfast is really good, with most of the ingredients coming from the family farm. You can even tell the difference from the taste and colors of everything was offered. Every day we had figs, delicious Greek yogurt with organic honey, and even the eggs were fresh.
Kefalonia, is one of the most beautiful parts of Greece, definitely you would need a car to explore it. Lassi on the other hand is a bit touristic but a good base to stay.
All in all, this hotel is by far one of the best that we've been, and we will definitely recommend it more for couples and less for families.
We will be returning next year with friends and we can't wait..... Thank you Thalassa Hotel for making our holiday truly special!
