It does exactly what it says in the brochure 'Gives a real sense of seclusion'
Arrived for our 11 nights after dinner was finished a sandwich and water and fruit were in the room a nice touch. The building problems after the earthquake are now non existent apart from minor things like some grating missing for the drains and a few cosmetic cracks like others I had concerns but now I can state there is nothing to worry about. Remember this is a three star hotel you want five? there is one up the road. I will get the bad parts out the road first entertainment - it is run by a Polish company so English is way down the line as far as explaining all the activities as at the kids club they do talk in polish although colouring in is universal, as you are so far from the town average nightly entertainment is not what you want or expect average at best. the beach is 100 meters away its a blue flag beach and it is very safe you have to pay 6 euros per day for sun beds I questioned this and was told it was cause its a public beach. The bar is not all inclusive at the beach and you need to pay for the Dolphin restaurant even though it is owned and staffed by the hotel which is just a piece of nonsense . There is a local bus from the hotel to the shops 1euro 60 each (same for kids) 09.30 depart and 14.30 return from the bus station it runs on GMT Greek maybe time it maybe on time or maybe not. Taxis are 10 euros one way.
Food in the restaurant is of a high standard and plenty choice no complaints there drink is okay usual all inclusive selection and the best bit unlimited ice cream for everyone 10.00 till 18.00.
Rooms well furnished with a portable television (Euro News the only English speaking channel)
with a camp bed (as advertised) for our child ,the shower/bath is quite small you find yourself sticking to the shower curtain. If you want a sunbed with a shade get down before seven or you've had it. The one surprise that isn't the hotels fault you expect the clientele to be adults and older kids Be warned there are lots of Easter European families with pre school children at this hotel so dinner can be like dining in a kindergarten. I enjoyed my stay I can say I've done Kefalonia but its just too quiet for me but worth going to tick the island off my list.
