“Chill out holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

My husband, two year old son and I stayed at this hotel for a week's all inclusive basis 17th-24th September. What a pleasant experience, the food, staff and accommodation were all top notch. Yes, the rooms may be a little outdated and have some rough edges but it by no means spoils the holiday.
The location is isolated, but walk out of the hotel and a few bars and tavernas are conveniently located towards the beach area. What more do you need? Would recommend this Hotel for a young family as the staff are so welcoming towards little ones.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

We have just returned from Cephalonia Palace Hotel after 14 nights all inclusive stay. The food was much better than we expected due to reading, in our opinion, inaccurate reviews. We enjoyed the transfer from the airport and it was much quicker than we were led to believe. All the staff were courteous, and Krista and Anna were always happy and friendly towards all guests. We met one of the owners who was very friendly, the resturant manager always looked very smart, and was always approachable and spoke to us regularly. We knew that the hotel was remote but were a little disappointed that there was only one bus a day to Lixouri Port as we thought the taxis were expensive. We had a first floor room number 148, we could see the sea, pool area, and garden which was good and did not find any issues with the room. We knew from reading reviews that we would have to pay for the use of sun beds on the beach, we asked why, the hotel rents the beach from the council. As one of us is a non swimmer the sea was shallow and calm and good for me. Weather was very good. As far as the Thomson organised trips were concerned, we found some a bit misleading and not value for money. On our return journey we were misinformed by the Thomson reps that we could purchase tobacco and ciggarettes at the airport and during our flight, so beware those of you who smoke, so buy in Kefalonia. Overall a very enjoyable holiday at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: We were happy with our room

hotel in the middle of nowhere, 10 euros each way in a taxi to nearest resort Lixouri, the room was basic at best, the bathroom was tiny with cracked tiles and mould. The room itself was basic with air cond which was extremely old, the balcony had a old birds nest in the corner which hadn't been removed in years. The all inclusive was poor no access to drinks at lunch time you had to ask the staff for drinks which was a problem as they were very busy. Due to the greek economy the owner has made drastic cuts in order to save his pockets and unfortunately the customers are suffering.

Room Tip: Do not go to this hotel

Stayed here 19 to the 26th sept , nice hotel , very clean , rooms cleaned every day ,bed and towels changed every day , food good , staff very generous with the drinks , entertainment not so good at night , all staff work hard and are very friendly , very quiet area , just a handful of tavernas , so if your looking for more night life don't stay here , if your looking for a nice peaceful holiday , then this is the place for you , would I go back to this hotel , yes I would , it's worth getting the ferry over to the capital , only 2.50 euros , and you can catch the loggerhead turtles near the harbour .

Room Tip: High floor pool view

Stayed here for the second year running. Love the location, hotel is lovely, everything was always clean, fresh linen and towels everyday. The restaurant food was always good and all the staff were friendly and polite. My only complaint were the drinks being too strong (although I doubt many would complain about that!). All in all a lovely place to enjoy a peaceful relaxing holiday.

Just returned from 2 weeks here , and after reading some of the reviews we were a bit apprehensive , but we found the food totally adequate with quite a variety ,and some evenings even very good , we didn`t eat in every night as it was nice to vary it a bit....but the rooms were acceptable and always cleaned every day , and the staff were great , even `Mario` the owner who some guests thought was miserable, not at all, he was very friendly. All in all we had a great time

Room Tip: Our room was one of the first on the second floor, not sure about all the others, would think the ro...
