“Our Wedding celebrations made perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

Having been regular visitors to Scala over a number of years we made a special trip in September 2012 to seek out the most suitable venue for our wedding the following May. Having visited several hotels in the area it quickly became apparent that the Regina was the stand out choice in terms of the facilities it had to offer and the fantastic attitude of the staff in letting you know in no uncertain terms that they would make happen anything that you wanted. In particular the hotel manageress Anastasia made sure our every need from the wedding paperwork to the organising of the menu, flowers, photographer and even fireworks!!

We stayed in the Honey moon/ presidential suite which is a private villa within the hotel grounds complete with own pool and luxury features such as sauna and Jacuzzi baths. It was truly special accommodation befitting of any memorable occasion. All of our guests staying in the hotels general rooms commented that the rooms were also of a very high standard.

The hotel grounds and public spaces are impeccable and show that the hotel is run in a first class manner. There is an amazing sea view from almost every area of the hotel and the majority of the rooms/ balconies. The pool is large a
well designed anD there are complimentary towels ready at pool side. The food is fantastic with the daily buffet style inclusive breakfasts offering wide and varied choices. The poolside restaurant is superb for lunch and evening meals. My particular favourite was the fillet steak which was cooked to perfection by the chef everytime.

The organisation of the wedding day itself was fantastic with Anastasia pulling together the wedding on the private beach directly in front of the hotel, drinks reception for the guests immediately after the service in a lovely room with big balcony area, a great DJ, florist, photographer and firework display which started as we cut the wedding cake....the wedding meal itself over several courses was of the highest quality and received nothing but the highest of praise from all if the wedding guests.

Overall I could not recommend this hotel highly enough for either a general holiday or special occasion such as a wedding, we would once again like to thank the staff of this hotel for making our wedding celebrations so special...

In May 2013 I was lucky enough to stay at the Regina del Acqua Resort for two weeks as part of my son and daughter in laws wedding party. Anastasia arranged everything for them from paperwork to the reception. Every guest in the wedding party found fresh flowers and a complimentary bottle of wine in their room along with a welcome note saying that they were a gift from the bride and groom. We were made to feel very special for the whole holiday, there was nothing the hotel and their amazing staff would not do for us. Anastasia and the hotel manager accompanied us for the official ceremony in Poros acting as translator. The wedding day itself was so memorable. The service on the beach was beautiful. The reception amazing with an exquisite 5 course meal and disco and fireworks by the pool afterwards. We were lucky enough to have about 50 family and friends attend the wedding and many of them stayed at the resort. Those who stayed elsewhere were made welcome throughout the holiday. We still talk about the incredible service we received and remember all the staff with great fondness. We are returning to Kefalonia this year but unfortunately could not get accommodation at the Regina, but my son has booked an anniversary meal by the pool and has been offered complimentary deals at the hotel. Who could want anything else! Thank you so much Regina del Acqua for providing so many people with such happy memories. I look forward to staying there again and again!

This was our first time to both Kefalonia and The Regina Dell Acqua Resort and we were extremely pleased with both. The hotel exceeded all expectations... the rooms and surroundings were beautiful and immaculate, the staff friendly and attentive, nothing was too much trouble. The sea is very close with miles of beautiful beach. There are plenty of friendly restaurants and shops a few hundred yards away. We had one of our best holidays, very relaxing, so much so that we're booked for a return visit this May!

Went to the Regina last June and was amazed when we arrived that the hotel and location was so beautiful. Although it had been recommended by family was so much better than I had imagined. Never normally go to a hotel with as few bedrooms as this but has made us realise how much better the service is in a smaller hotel. Having said that the hotel did not feel small , all the facilities were spacious , clean and beautifully maintained. Staff and management team are warm and welcoming, they cannot do enough for you. Just a short 10 min walk into Skala but there are a couple of restaurants closer, and the hotel food is excellent and on par with local restaurant prices. Kefalonia is a lovely island and easy to get around if you hire a car which we did. Amazed that we travelled to the other side of the island without stopping Which is approx 50 miles ( no traffic lights or roundabouts to contend with ). The roads are very quiet. So impressed with the Regina cannot wait to visit again this summer.

For the 3rd time we have stayed for a week at Regina. And once again we have had a superb experience. The hotel is wonderful - very close to the sea - with nice rooms and good breakfast. The staff is friendly and helpful and the assistant manager Anastasia is a very friendly and warm person. She treats us so well and makes us feel very welcome and important. The manager, Evangelos, is also a very friendly and welcoming person, and his policy is to give repeating guests a very good price, which we appreciate as we have 3 rooms for our family. This is the right place to stay when visiting Skala and we will be back in 2014.

Kefalonia had been on our wish list for several years and with no prior knowledge of where to stay we chose the Regina Dell Acqua largely using Tripadvisor reviews - this turned out to be one of the best holiday decisions we have ever made!
From arrival to departure we were pampered by great but not overbearing service - this hotel strikes the perfect balance between quality and informality - ideal in such a warm climate.
Nothing is too much trouble for Anastasia and her staff.
The pool area is immaculately clean with attentive service from the nearby bar. The beach is just across the road and it's possible to have a dip in the sea then return to the comfort of your pool sun lounger via the poolside shower. If not already relaxed enough a poolside massage is available and should melt away any tension.
In the evenings Skala village is a leisurely stroll (or a short lazy drive if wearing heels). There are plenty of good value, quality restaurants to choose from if staying bed and breakfast. For those on half board, or just dining in the hotel, dinner is beautifully set up on the pool terrace.
We had a hire car for the duration of our stay. We had 2 days exploring the island: firstly to Sami, across to Assos then up to Fiskardo, which was a spectacularly scenic drive and included the signature beach of the island, Myrtos beach; secondly half a day in the capital town of Argostoli which was surprisingly vibrant with a large harbour - arriving back at Regina Dell Acqua we agreed there was nowhere we would rather stay on the island.
Since this trip at least 6 of our friends have enjoyed wonderful stays at the Regina Dell Acqua and all have returned enthused.
Our only (slight) sadness during our stay was that we were not sharing such a great experience with friends - and we vowed to return as soon as possible and not unaccompanied!
I posted my pictures on Tripadvisor on our return to the UK, but this long overdue review was prompted by the fact that we have now booked to return for a second week at the end of June 2014 - and this time we are bringing some friends who were seduced by my photos of the hotel and the island in general. Can't wait!!
We loved our sea view room so much that we didn't really explore the alternatives and have booked similar rooms for next year.
It's not easy to give an honest review whilst hoping to keep this wonderful hotel a relative secret!

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are more expensive but worth it for the wonderful views and tranquility - the hig...

Spent two glorious nights here at the end of my honeymoon in June 2013. Food was great, service even better and the facilities were great.

Manageress found out it was our honeymoon and upgraded us to a four poster bed room, with breakfast in bed and a free massage each - and a welcoming bottle of bubbly in the room on our arrival. She in particular impressed us with her efficiency, friendliness and attitude. Brilliant.

Staff were very good - attentive and friendly and made us feel very welcome. Bed was very comfy and the jacuzi in the room was ace!

Would recommend to anyone - just wish that we had had more time there!
