A great hotel in a quiet area. Good for a romantic week away, or quiet family holiday. Quiet because it requires car hire, infrequent bus or taxi to get to nearest town - Lixouri, and then a ferry to capital of the Island - Argostoli.
All inclusive food in hotel widely varied and very good. Breakfast - continental and cooked. Lunch - hot and cold and desserts. Dinner - hot and cold and desserts. Multiple meats, fish and veg options every night. Very good quality, we were always full. All inclusive drinks and snacks all good, and generous. Check website for timings.
Went with Thompson, and the rep was great. Excursions a bit pricey but the Discover Kefalonia was good. Drogorati Caves (about 5EURO entrance fee) and Melisani Lake (about 7EURO fee) are both superb sites. Assos, Myrtos Bay and Fiskardo are lovely to see.
Hotel pool is nice a big, also a kids pool. Regular activities, good for kids especially. Tennis court, table tennis and outdoor chess set were good. No gym was a shame.
Local Beach (Xi Beach) is nice, but you have to pay 6EURO for a sunbed.
Staff very helpful and most speak some English. Cleaners very good.
All in all, highly recommended. Not 5 star due to no gym and not much to do locally, and no beach towels provided by hotel!
