Just returned from this hotel after a 11 night stay, Kefalonia is a beautiful Island and have stayed there many times but never again in Lixouri. There is the beach, possibly just over a mile of red sand definitely not the best beach I've been on and can be narrow in places.
This hotel in Lixouri is far too remote for my liking with nothing of interest around it, the pool with 34 pods around it to be shared by the possible 400+ guests is a total joke as these beds have towels on them from around 4am in the morning and the hotel does nothing to stop this type of practice, some are left for hours empty (with towels draped over them) while other guest have to pay on the beach.
A day or so before we left more sun chairs arrived for pool use but there is no shade provided the hotel also provided more chairs for pool bar use but only due to guest complaints.
The staff are very pleasant, food was as good as you would expect from a hotel of this size and catering for many nationalities.
I can only comment on my room but I would expect the others to be similar, the beds were very comfortable the tv a waste of time as reception useless, decor very tired and needs revamping.
The entertainments team try very hard to create a good atmosphere for all to enjoy especially the children.
I did not pick this hotel, I had booked the Utopia with a fishing village around it and a harbour but Thomson stopped trading with them and so this was all we could have as Thomson left us with not much time or choice to select alternative accommodation.
